Find your essence
Our Ancestors used to find people's essence by observing. There is evidence of very similar Enneagram systems in Egypt, Tibet also in Babilonia, Inca Societies but they didn't register this wisdom in the books so the history is not so cleary. We believe they recognized the essence of children and educated each individual based on who they really were.
Anyway, Enneagram is not a part of our society, so we need different ways to find our essence.
Here you can find some ways. I invite you to choose one way or all use all this options
1- Enneagram Personality test
2- Study about all essences and find yours
3- Enneagram couch session
1- Enneagram Personality test
Usually it has 70% accuracy. The test can also tell you about how you are in the present moment not necessary how you truly really. According to this anthropological, your essence never change but in some moments you may borrow attributes from other essences and you may find this is your essence. If you know yourself very well, you can recognize your essence by reading the description of the essences. If you don't know very well about you, test may not give you a correct answer.

2- Study about all essences and find yours:
We can understand enneagram about 9 attributes that all human beens have. From this 9 attribute, there is one that you have more, this is what we call your essence. Why is important to find your essence is we are all?
Because just our essence has the key for be the best version of yourself. When you borrow atributs from others you aslo do that according to your essence.
Imagine that everyone have their musical instrument. When you don't know your life instrument, you take anyone and play. You can play well, but it will be never your own music. Once you find your instrument, you need to fix your instrument and learn how to play. It will flow naturaly. And after you know how to play your own instrument well you can learn how to play other to compose your melody in different rhythms. So is always very important to also understand about other essences to understand better about yourself.
