Why 9 not 6 Types

by Neil

Hello,


As we know it was G.I. Gurdjieff who first introduced the enneagram to the western world.

For some reason the translation of the enneagram has somewhat changed since then.

I have studied at a Gurdjieff school and I was taught there are only 6 essence types.

There are many sites on the internet about the enneagram and nearly all of them tell of nine types.

I am confused as to why and perhaps this explains why on this site you find the enneagram test to be not so accurate.

Scientists discovered quarks inside the atom a few years ago and surely its no coincidence that each quark exhibits the same characteristics as each essence type - even to the point of pairing up with its soulmate.

Personally I think this is an important link between religion and science and has been sadly missed due to a simple misunderstanding of the enneagram.
