Hockeyplyr042's Review of Know Your Type The PersonalityReviewed on 9/6/19 2:26 PM
There was no test to help you navigate your type- you are given a bunch of cards and then asked if that's like you at all. No probing questions, just large swaths of text that could apply to you (and in some ways all of them kind of apply to everybody). This app should give you a more useful tool for discovering your type- very disappointed. I have never wanted a refund before for an app, but I want one for this.

The information and interactive activities are engaging and insightful. If you want to know more about your personality type and how to interact well with others, this is the best app. The videos of real people of each type were interesting and the exercises were helpful. If you have any desire to learn more about yourself and others, you won't be disappointed in the quality of this app.

I use this app before going to meetings to prepare myself for communication and avoiding/ resolving conflict. It is extremely helpful for one-on-one meetings. Reinforcing enneagram frequently reminds me that nothing is really personal it is just our 'types'.

A lot of useful and accessible information on the 9 types. Finally I have an easy tool to type my friends. Great app design, bravo!

I use enneagrams in my work daily, teaching people about how their unthinking patterns of behavior impact their lives. This is the best app I've seen towards that end.

If you are just discovering the Enneagram, this is the app you want. If you know the Enneagram well, you will appreciate how It makes excellent use of the technology to explore the dynamism between types. Ginger Lapid-Bogda is a recognized authority on the Enneagram in organizational life and personal development. An excellent presentation! Type videos were a little slow to load on my 3G phone but not a major annoyance.

I'm pretty sure some of the absolutely glowing reviews for this app were written by the author's friends. It's an okay app, but it's not great. There's a lot of information on there, and her enneagram quiz is fun. I like that you can test your knowledge of the different enneagram types as well. Her video clips of the types are pretty bad, however. For example, in her video clip for type Four, the supposed exemplar admits to being prone to an "us versus them" attitude which, if you've read much on the enneagram, you know is almost verbatim how a number of other authors describe type Six! It seems that anyone claiming to have expertise on the enneagram ought not to have video clips as exemplars for one type saying things that are stereotypical of another type. Someone who wasn't very informed about the enneagram might easily mistype themselves based on this. The other problem with her app is the type tips. The type tips are very hit or miss, and some weeks, they can be downright trite. It includes tips like "write down three things you like about yourself," "think of some positive things in your life" and "when you start to feel bad about yourself, stop...just STOP!" Also, she doesn't show an in-depth understanding of the fixations in her type-tips. The type Four ones, for example, are almost always geared towards depression and could be applicable to anyone of any type who was depressed. Her type Six tips have a similar problem with anxiety, in that it seems like the general advice therapists would give someone with GAD, rather than specific to type Six per se. I think if she could "get back to basics" and work the fixations of the types into her tips occasionally, they would improve immensely.
Susan Fisher's Review of Know Your Type The PersonalityReviewed on 9/6/19 2:26 PM
The app is initially very pleasing visually. I was excited to try it out. I found the "type yourself" part of the app very superficial. I had hoped it would be a more objective way of determining my type rather than a subjective self-evaluation. I am not sure that people are well enough supported in the world to know themselves well at this deep level. The rest of the app feels like an advertisement for the author more than an actual tool to assist with the exploration of your enneagram type. How were the enneagram types for the famous people determined? Are there other author's of enneagram books and works? Is there any discussion of the differences in their approaches? Which branch of the enneagram originators did the author's work stem from? I know the author did a great deal of work to create this app, but this is information for the world, not a promotional tool for the author. Susan

This app is not just entertaining (although it IS that, too) - it's a comprehensive overview of the Enneagram system. Easy to navigate, this is the first app I have ever purchased - and am thoroughly enjoying everything I can do with it. Highly recommended!

Simple, yet effective, user interface guides you on a journey of self-insight. I especially appreciate the helpful tips for reducing stress, working more effectively, and self-development. Perfect for anyone interested in self-insight as the foundation for personal growth.
