Welcome to Dave's Enneagram

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.

Songs by Enneagram Type or Instinct

I've seen songs listed by Enneagram type or instinct in various places on the Internet (e.g., YouTube, discussion forums). Unfortunately, they don't often go beyond a caricature of a type (for example, "Don't Worry, Be Happy" doesn't really describe type 7).
