Most of us have no idea how others see or process their experiences. And that can make relationships hard, whether with intimate partners, with friends, or in our professional lives. Understanding the motivations and dynamics of these different personality types can be the key that unlocks sometimes mystifying behavior in others—and in ourselves.

This book from Suzanne Stabile on the nine Enneagram types and how they behave and experience relationships will guide readers into deeper insights about themselves, their types, and others’ personalities so that they can have healthier, more life-giving relationships. No one is better equipped than the coauthor of The Road Back to You to share the Enneagram’s wisdom on how relationships work—or don’t.

  • Why do Sixes seem so intimidated and put off by Eights, who only wish the Sixes would stop mulling things over and take action?
  • Why do Fives seem so unavailable, even to their closest family and friends, while Twos seem to feel everybody else’s feelings but their own and end up irritating people who don’t want their help?
  • How in the world can Fours be so open and loving to you one day and restrained and distant other times?

The Enneagram not only answers these questions but gives us a way out of our usual finger pointing and judging of other people—and finding them wanting, perplexing, or impossible. Suzanne’s generous, sometimes humorous, and always insightful approach reveals why all the types behave as they do. This book offers help in fostering more loving, mature, and compassionate relationships with everyone in our lives.

"Suzanne has been a priceless source of wisdom in my life for many years. She is without question the best Enneagram teacher out there."

Nadia Bolz-Weber, author of Accidental Saints

"Few people can teach you the Enneagram with the genuine insight, humor, and potential for real growth and change than Suzanne Stabile! Savor every page. You, your friends and family, and the universe will all benefit!"

Richard Rohr, Center for Action and Contemplation, Albuquerque, New Mexico
