Enneagram Stances is a site dedicated to Jon Singletary‘s teaching and research, focused on helping you navigate your personality, understand the Enneagram, and as a result, strengthen the compassion you offer yourself and others.
The Enneagram teaches nine ways we see and engage the world around us, oftentimes without our even knowing it. We each respond based to everyday situations based on habitual responses, primarily our approach to thinking, feeling, and doing. Stances are the ways that our personalities fail to balance the dimensions of thinking, feeling, and doing and the ways that one of these always seems to fail us.¹
Do you know how these three dimensions function in your life?
Do you struggle most with, or tend to most neglect, your capacity for thinking, feeling, or doing?

¹Enneagram Stances are three groupings of Enneagram types labelled as such by Kathy Hurley and Ted Donson (What’s My Type? San Fransisco: HarperCollins, 1991). They are comparable to the Hornevian Groups presented by Don Riso (Understanding the Enneagram: The Practical Guide to Personality Types. Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1990).
