Have you jumped on the enneagram train yet? What is your enneagram number? Do you feel like you really understand what the enneagram means and what it is saying about you?
Thank you Harper One books for gifting me a copy in exchange for my honest review.
Synopsis from Goodreads: Millenneagram reinvigorates the Enneagram by putting a modern spin on the classic nine types. Hannah Paasch, creator of the popular #millenneagream threads on Twitter, reveals how this system acts as a map toward our authentic selves. For Hannah, the Enneagram is not about changing who we are, but rather nurturing and loving our whole selves, even the pain in the ass qualities. “Only from this position of wholeness, rootedness in who we are, what we believe, and what kind of story we are writing, will we be able to act bravely for the sake of justice and humanity – to approach our f*cked-up world with the grounded courage it asks of us.” With her trademark irreverent humor and empowering affirmations, Millenneagram reframes the classic Enneagram types with a fresh perspective and new names that cut right to the chase:
#1 The Machine
“I’m an Enneagram 1 and I Can Fix This!”
#2 The Parent
“I’m an Enneagram 2 and Can I Get You a Refill?”
#3 The Winner
“I’m an Enneagram 3 and All I Do Is Win.”
#4 The Tortured Artist
“I’m an Enneagram 4 and I’m Deeper Than You.”
#5 The Detective
“I’m an Enneagram 5 and I Read an Article About That.”
#6 The Oracle
“I’m an Enneagram 6 and I’m Loyal as Fuck.”
#7 The Party
“I’m an Enneagram 7 so This Might Be Vodka In My Mug.”
#8 The Dragon
“I’m an Enneagram 8 so Nice Try, Bitch.”
#9 The Wallflower
“I’m an Enneagram 9 so Let’s Just All Chill Out, Dude.”
A powerful tool for self-discovery (that doesn’t take itself too seriously), Millenneagram is an invitation for introspection and growth. Hannah’s revamped Enneagram goes beyond simply identifying with a type: it gives us permission to be our truest, enough-as-is, bad-ass selves.
Personal Review: If you’re like me, maybe you’ve struggled to find out which enneagram number you truly are. LOOK NO FURTHER! My family and I OBSESSED over this book this weekend, pouring hours into meaningful conversation working to better understand how we work as a family unit and how we are personally wired. I do want to note that I consider myself a christian and did not find offense to things mentioned in this book per Hannah as she stated her past history with the church. To each his own! I gained so much more knowledge and appreciation for the enneagram after reading this book. It makes total sense now! Hannah, YOU ROCK! This is a hilarious and true look at the enneagram that is a MUST read! You’re going to want to add this to your library as soon as possible!
