The 45 Combinations of Relating, Collaborating and Connecting:
How Each Pairing Can Disintegrate or Thrive!
by David Daniels, MD
David Daniels presents all 45 possible combinations of the Enneagram types in relationship with each other. These combinations allow us to see deeply within our own character structure and can assist us in developing healthy relationships with our partner, family members, friends, clients and co-workers. These combinations can help us gain insight and a deeper sense of ourselves and others that turns in to compassion. By getting grounded and receptive and non-judging, we enhance our ability to see through the eyes of others and experience another’s emotional life and view of the world.
Within each of the combinations, David explores the relationship dynamics of each type with every other type, placing an emphasis on the cycle of conflict that naturally occurs between the types, and how this cycle can lead to relationship distress and disruption. He presents how each type can support each other to create a relationship that flourishes rather than flounders. This includes: (1) what we each need to acknowledge or own about ourselves; (2) what we need to appreciate about the other; and (3) the key awarenesses and tasks for building and sustaining the relationship.
