How old are the Enneagram types?

Post by Dave » Sat Oct 07, 2017 11:51 am

When I first came across the Enneagram types many years ago, the often repeated story was that they were hundreds, if not thousands, of years old. But I couldn't find any record anywhere of the types used with the symbol before Oscar Ichazo some 50 years ago.

Here's a blog post I wrote about it.

What's your experience? How old are the types and what's your source of reference for that?
