Description

The enneagram theory asserts a model of personality incorporating traits, motivation, and both temporary and lasting personality changes through process whereas most personality theories emphasize either one or twoof these characterizations. Findings from research validating the nine personality types proposed in theory now merits an investigation of other core enneagram constructs. Two previous efforts have been made to assess disintegration, the characteristic behavioral and emotional responses patterns to stress and anxiety, but found no supportive evidence likely because the instrument used to measure disintegration was originally designed for a different purpose. For this third investigation we have assembled a measure based on the most recent descriptions from theory. A small sample (N= 104) study was conducted to evaluate the correlation between an enneagram personality assessment and disintegration descriptions with considerations of prior knowledge, response duration, and other potentially relevant variables.
