This book is about the Three Faces of Self, one or two of which you have not met, or perhaps only met fleetingly. The three faces of self are the Reactive Self, the Perceptive Self, and the Creative Self. In exploring the three faces of self, we introduce you to the “‘nine dots”’ of the Enneagram in two of its forms. The Enneagram of Pathways describes the processes for accessing and understanding the underlying dynamics of the three faces of self. The Enneagram of Patterns describes the nine universal perception patterns that can be expressed by individuals.
