What’s Your Ennea-Style in Relationships?

The Riso-Hudson Enneagram Institute Enneagram Type Combinations in Relationship:

No pairing of types is particularly blessed and no pairing is particularly doomed. These type combinations are an overview to help people understand some of the main positive and negative issues that are likely to arise between any two types.Keep in mind that one can have a relationship with any type if the two people are healthy. Since this is not always the case, knowing the type, the level of health, and the instincts of each person can provide more insight.

To learn more about the compatibility issues of your type and its interactions with other types, find your personality type below, and click on the type for the other person in the relationship.
