Personality Profiling |Aisling Killoran | Ray Manning
The Enneagram is a powerful personal development tool for understanding ourselves & the people in our lives on an intellectual, emotional, and physical basis.
This is for you if you would like to discover more about your personality type and who you are; and why you react to people and circumstances in the way that you do.
Aisling Killoran & Ray Manning at Accomplish Change Clinic in Dublin can help you unlock the inner workings of your personality, opening the way to greater acceptance and well-being in mind, body and spirit.
Discovering who you are through the Enneagram will help you uncover the secrets of your personality, and make positive changes in your life.
When we know about ourselves, we can learn to accept our weaknesses and have more choice in avoiding the pitfalls in our personalities.
When we know about others, we can learn to respect and value their differences and live more peacefully with them.
What Is The Enneagram?
The Enneagram is for understanding personality types and human behaviour, developed in the East and adopted by Christian mystics over 1,500 years ago.
Widely used today as a perceptive guide to self-understanding. It identifies nine main personality types and examines the ways in which they interact with one another. It’s like a blueprint for self –observation and personal development
It shows us a whole new way of looking at things in perspective.
The Enneagram … holding a mirror to the mystery of the soul (Simon Parke)
What Use Is The Enneagram?
A source of self-knowledge that acts as a kind of "mirror" to reveal features of our personality that normally are invisible to us.
Most of the time, people function habitually, as if on "automatic pilot," according to the pattern of our basic personality type. Usually, this allows us to get along well enough in our lives, but when our normal routines break down or the stresses of our lives increase too much, our normal way of coping tends to break down or become dysfunctional.
Understanding your personality type can give you valuable insights into why you do things and the ways in which you react to situations. Seeing clearly what our habitual patterns are—seeing what we are doing and why we are doing it, and at what cost to ourselves and others—holds the key to our liberation.
By knowing your type correctly, you are able to see yourself—to "catch yourself in the act"—as you move throughout the day. With this increased self-awareness, you are also able to avoid reacting in negative and potentially dangerous ways.
Maybe you could use this as a starting point for change… that keeps you on a course.
How Can The Enneagram Help Me?
It is like an honest friend, a mirror, revealing our failings and personal development needs so that we can change for the better.
When we know more about ourselves, it can open up to us possibilities we never dreamed of about ourselves.
The Enneagram invites us to observe how we habitually spend energy, and how to focus effectively on becoming more productive, proactive and responsive in both our personal development and work-life.
Self-knowledge - it gives us the keys to who we really are on the inside and why we do the things we do.
Transformation - It is like a road map of the psyche that gives clear directions.

As we go through life, we take with us our personality and all the influence, beliefs and experiences we have received throughout our childhood years.
Have You Ever?
- Argued passionately to be ‘right’, only in retrospect to feel it was a hollow victory
- Felt happy to be ‘behind the scenes, making things happen’, only later to feel unappreciated?
- Achieved outrageous success and still felt a bit like a failure?
- Acted extraordinary and felt incurably ordinary?
- Believed the answer to all problems lies in information?
- Focused more on the difficulties than opportunities at hand?
- Brainstormed brilliantly and gotten bored with the follow-through that gets results?
- Moved mountains for someone and alienated them in the process?
- Facilitated ‘peace’ at the expense of your own point of view?
Along the way life throws obstacles and challenges both good and bad at us and we react as best we can... and because we do not know much about ourselves, we often struggle to make sense of who we are and why we react in certain ways. As a result, we can make life hard for ourselves and others.
