Program Details

The 3-day Typing Process is part of the Enneagram Teacher Certification Program in the Narrative Tradition. If you are aspired to be a certified teacher in the Narrative Tradition, this program is a MUST.

If you are interested to use the Enneagram for your professional work as a coach or counsellor, this experiential training teaches you how to assist others in determining their Enneagram type. The training will focus on the many aspects of the typing interview process and provides a hands-on approach to let you practise the interviewing skills you learnt from the class on someone you never meet before.



The Typing Process is an intense and rigorous learning through presentation and discussion, demonstration, conducting short type panels, working in small group to formulate questions and practising interviewing skills with real interview subject.

Participants will learn to:

  • Identify the type bias and how it can influence the typing process
  • Identify the key words, phrases and concepts associated with each type
  • Formulate questions that express the key words, phrases and concepts of each type
  • Develop a comprehensive strategy or protocol for typing interviews
  • Use key questions to make the distinction between look-alike types
  • Validate tentative conclusions about an interviewee’s type by checking the wings, stress and security types, and giving a synopsis
  • Identify the non-verbal cues associated with each type
  • Conduct typing interview and short panel


Step-by-step you will learn how to conduct typing interviews to assist newcomers to the Enneagram in determining their type.
