Levels of Development
The Levels of Development is a key contribution by Don Riso from Enneagram Institute. The Levels are a measure of our consciousness, our ability to be present and to maintain contact with the moment. It is not only used to explain variations between people of the same type, but also used to understand the level of health within a type through measuring our degree of identification with our personality structure, how liberated and aware, or how defended and shut down.
For ease of understanding, the 9 Levels are usually grouped into 3 groups as follows:
- Healthy – levels 1 through 3 (high functioning aspects of the type)
- Average – levels 4 through 6 (normal behaviours of the type)
- Unhealthy – levels 7 through 9 (deeply dysfunctional manifestations of the type)
