Dave's Enneagram provides a rich introduction to the Enneagram through Dave's Enneagram Guide and the links to resources provided by various teacher interpretations of the system. However, the primary purpose of Dave's Enneagram is to find examples of type and instinct through songs, type interviews, famous people, movie characters, and other resources. I've found that learning and applying the Enneagram may start with descriptions of the types, instincts, and concepts of the system, but to truly understand it requires exploring the experience that these concepts are pointing to. In other words, bringing the types to life.

I determine the Enneagram type or instinct of a song mainly through the lyrics. I don't generally find that the music by itself can be typed - there's just too much room for individual interpretation to narrow it down to one type or instinct (one exception to this is a theme song closely identified with a person or story). Up to this point the song videos I've posted are for the purpose of hearing and reading the lyrics (song audio with the lyrics on screen). However, the visual aspects of a song video can sometimes enhance the meaning of the lyrics or alter the meaning. I'm going through songs I've already posted to add a visual video underneath the lyrics video. Below are the types of videos I'm adding.
Most songs have two videos listed. Play the 1st video to hear the song and see the lyrics on-screen. Play the 2nd video to see the song performed live or in the context of a music video, movie, play, etc.
