“Pat Wyman thinks systematically, and often brilliantly. She has managed to elegantly demonstrate . . . where overlaps occur between the two systems [MBTI® and Ennegram], and where they do not . . . which is a very effective way of displaying the parameters.”
—Helen Palmer The Enneagram: Understanding Yourself and the Others in Your Life and The Enneagram in Love and Work
Pat Wyman is a pioneer . . . Her cutting edge book deftly merges the MBTI® and the Enneagram into an easy-to-understand format. . . . a masterpiece in detail and thought. For professionals who work to discern ‘what makes people tick,’ Pat’s work [is] an interactive system for all to use.

There have been several previous attempts to ‘correlate’ the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) with the Enneagram, and as creative as those were, each time it brought up images for us of Cinderella’s sister trying to squeeze her foot into the glass slipper. Pat’s approach, however, is simple, elegant, and inspired: “Don’t Correlate.” Seems obvious with hindsight, doesn’t it? But Pat gets the credit for presenting a coherent theory of how the Enneagram and the MBTI each describe different aspects of personality, each contributing important insights. Drawing on case histories, [it] illustrates how using both models of personality enables a greater understanding than either alone can give, illuminating the complexities, subtleties and inner contradictions inherent in human personality.

Pat’s work is groundbreaking, synergistics, and accessible. Anyone interested in personality theory will learn something from reading this book.
