The Enneagram Spectrum of Personality Styles: An Introductory Guide by Jerome P. Wagner, Ph.D. (Metamorphous Press 1996)
spectrum
This introduction to the Enneagram is intended to give readers a concise understanding of the Enneagram styles in a short amount of time. It begins with 30 reflection questions to discover the pieces of your own personality puzzle, then gives the Enneagram style templates for putting those pieces together. The format contrasts the positive dimensions of each style with the less-resourceful dimensions that result from over-using your strengths. Additionally, how each style developed, what you might miss as a result of your style, and what happens under stressful and relaxed conditions are mapped out.

Nine Lenses on the World: The Enneagram Perspective by Jerome Wagner, Ph.D. (NineLens Press 2010)
spectrum
We typically view the world through lenses but usually don't examine the lenses themselves. From time to time we need to examine our glasses to see if they are filtering the world cleanly or are distorting our vision. Nine Lenses on the World: the Enneagram Perspective provides a lens check to discover whether we are viewing the world accurately as it is or altered, like our world view believes it should be. Each of the 9 lenses has a sweet spot, an intuitive edge that helps us focus on some things very clearly; a blind spot, a range of reality that falls outside the boundary of our paradigm so we may not see this area as clearly; and a hot spot, an area of vulnerability where we are particularly sensitive and touchy. These lenses are actually 9 perspectives.

The Idealistic Perspective | The Perspective of Love | The Productive Perspective | The Aesthetic Perspective | The Perspective of Wisdom | The Perspective of Tradition | The Joyful Perspective | The Perspective of Strength | The Peaceful Perspective

Hot Leaders, Cool Facilitators; Learning to Lead One Meeting at a Time by Bart Wendell, Ph.D. (Networlding Publishing 2010)
spectrum
We are all leaders! Everything we do influences others. Every meeting or gathering we are in - be it business, the PTA, a book group, or at the dinner table - changes how others view our influence and leadership. Yet, few people have a roadmap showing how this influence happens or how to develop the best influencing skills. The metaphor of temperature provides such a map. Heat is most conducive to encouraging action and results; Cool encourages taking perspective and assessing; and Warm stimulates motivation and commitment. Each of the nine Enneagram types operates at a characteristic leadership temperature. For example, the Hot and Cool Perfectors foster cool temperatures until they have 'earned' the right to heat things up; the Hot Innovator becomes impatient with attempts to Cool things down at all. Each type of leadership has its own Stretch Routes and Escape Routes, as well as its own levels of functioning and its own warning signs of discomfort. Learn to be a high-impact leader by choice!
