Enneagram for High School Teachers

TEFT_cover_500One of the most frequent requests I’ve received over the years is to write a book that will introduce the enneagram to teens. Well, it’s here!

I’m pleased to announce that The Enneagram for Teens: Discover Your Personality Type & Celebrate Your True Self is now available in both Kindle and paperback versions.

I’ve created a downloadable quiz that you can print and give to your students to begin introducing them to the enneagram. The quiz is a starting point for helping your students discover their personality type.

Once your students have an idea of what type they might be — or the two or three that resonate most — they can read the chapter dedicated to that type. Each type chapter includes personal stories shared by teens and former teens relating what it’s like to be their type, as well as a description of the greatest strengths of that type and tips for achieving their goals and improving study habits leveraging their strengths. Your students will not only learn more about themselves, but also learn about the differences and strengths of others. It’s a great resource for introducing topics surrounding the richness of our diversity.

You can download the type quiz PDF using this link. Once you open the link, choose File>Save As from your browser menu. Then save it to your desktop, or choose File>Print from your browser menu if you want to print directly.

Feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss using the quiz and The Enneagram for Teens in your classroom.

Why Teach the Enneagram? And How?

This book can fit into many kinds of programs. It’s useful in psychology and social studies classes. It’s wonderful for students who need to take their minds off of negative activities and focus on something positive, the personalities we all live with. So it’s useful in diversity programs, treatment programs, religious education (the principles of acceptance and tolerance), and enneagram classes. A good way to teach it is to discuss this book and to have panels of each type. The teacher can question  students of one type on a panel facing the rest of the class in a way that shows similarities within the type and differences from one type to another.

I am so thankful for this focus and I haven’t read the book yet! I am an Enneagram teacher of many years always looking for an effective way to use this tool in everyday situations with people who most need it! Andrea Kirby

Hi Andrea, thanks for your comment. Don’t you think teens could well use the Enneagram? It could help them with so many “issues.” – Liz
