According to writer Paasch (the Huffington Post; Vox; Mother Jones), readers can use the ancient enneagram model of human personality types to explore their motivations, fears, and basic desires in order to pinpoint their identities and reach specific life goals. Paasch tweaks the traditional enneagram diagram to include types such as the romantic, the reformer, and the peacemaker, and proposes the millenneagram, with categories such as the parent, the winner, and the wallflower. She details every kind of character trait and associated triad and explains how to utilize these qualities to one's full advantage as well as how to get along with other styles.
VERDICT The beauty of this system is discovering and celebrating one's true self, and while Paasch's material may be valuable, her irreverent tone might be a turnoff for some readers, while attractive to others.
