Buckle up, folks It s time to jump in, embrace your inner self, and release the things that are holding you back from wholeness Enter the Millenneagram.The Enneagram is an ancient personality typing system that has a sneaky way of revealing who we are and why we do the things we do Using nine types, it gets to the root of our fears and motivations, unveiling our inner most selves.Millenneagram reinvigorates the Enneagram by putting a modern spin on the classic nine types Hannah Paasch, creator of the popular millenneagream threads on Twitter, reveals how this system acts as a map toward our authentic selves For Hannah, the Enneagram is not about changing who we are, but rather nurturing and loving our whole selves, even the pain in the ass qualities Only from this position of wholeness, rootedness in who we are, what we believe, and what kind of story we are writing, will we be able to act bravely for the sake of justice and humanity to approach our f cked up world with the grounded courage it asks of us With her trademark irreverent humor and empowering affirmations, Millenneagram reframes the classic Enneagram types with a fresh perspective and new names that cut right to the chase 1 The Machine I m an Enneagram 1 and I Can Fix This 2 The Parent I m an Enneagram 2 and Can I Get You a Refill 3 The Winner I m an Enneagram 3 and All I Do Is Win 4 The Tortured Artist I m an Enneagram 4 and I m Deeper Than You 5 The Detective I m an Enneagram 5 and I Read an Article About That 6 The Oracle I m an Enneagram 6 and I m Loyal as Fuck 7 The Party I m an Enneagram 7 so This Might Be Vodka In My Mug 8 The Dragon I m an Enneagram 8 so Nice Try, Bitch 9 The Wallflower I m an Enneagram 9 so Let s Just All Chill Out, Dude A powerful tool for self discovery that doesn t take itself too seriously , Millenneagram is an invitation for introspection and growth Hannah s revamped Enneagram goes beyond simply identifying with a type it gives us permission to be our truest, enough as is, bad ass selves.

    I ve been following Hannah on Twitter for years now, and I remember when the Millenneagram hashtag first emerged If I m totally honest Hannah, if you happen to read this, just know that I m a 1 and much harsher with myself , I was put off by how on brand and buzzword y a lot of it was, but I also couldn t miss that underneath that was some really poignant articulations of the Enneagram And not just poignant, but in some ways truly fresh and new, even to someone who s done a somewhat embarrassingly deep dive into it all Soon enough, I was eagerly awaiting new posts under the hashtag, but shortly after that gave up Twitter for a while and was surprised to see when I returned that a book deal was in the works I happened to check a week or two after it was published, found a surprisingly good deal, and ordered it on a whim and I m really glad for that As I mentioned, I ve spent a good bit of time reading about the Enneagram both online and in books, and what I really appreciate most about Paasch s book is that it genuinely feels like it adds something vibrantly unique and worthwhile to the conversation While it s marketed as a sort of lay expression of the Enneagram so simple and straightforward that even a millennial can understand it, I don t think that s where the need is the fact that it s exploded in popularity among millennials in the past 3 years speaks to its longstanding resonance or the impact But don t get me wrong, I think it s got a really powerful impact Sure, the language is certainly less academic and much colorful and she makes a point to include personal anecdotes and pop culture references, but I would say rather than that making it feel simpler or accessible, it makes it feel relatable and intimate and human An interesting phenomenon when reading other Enneagram writers is that their level of formality makes for a weird contrast you feel exposed but kept at a distance I would argue that the power of Paasch s hyper personal writing style down to the frequent second person narrative is that it shifts the aforementioned reading experience to help you feel seen and understood rather than just exposed because someone is holding your hand pep talking slapping you in the face And I found some real power in that In fact, because of it, I feel like this book on its own has the potential to be a bit catalyzing than a lot of the other reflective, impersonal material And honestly, I also appreciated that the approach was so distinct in its irreverence some Enneagram writing takes itself awfully seriousNow that I ve heralded the merits of the writing style, I will confess that it also inspired frequent eye rolls and there were points where her writer s voice felt grating and seemed to get in the way of the content I just wanted to say, We get it, you re edgy and hip, chill out But I guess you could say that s what makes it feel like a real person, which is hopefully high praise for a 4 And I suppose the book works best as a starting point I d argue a pretty good one for many in that it follows a pretty standard format and structure, going type by type and breaking them up into triads She does touch on the Instinctual Variants which is a bit rare, and I definitely think this has some of the most nuanced, empathetic, and human descriptions of 5s that I ve ever seen, and some really great details for 6s as well I think my biggest unmet hope or desire from the book was a lack of exploration around the Enneagram s potential power for justice work and social transformation, which only emerged because she placed a unique emphasis on that in the intro and conclusion It offers a framing that bookends the endeavor, in some ways justifying what can feel like naval gazing with the merit of cultivating deep self understanding and compassion that bears growth and creates opportunities for collective connection That s a great start and I suppose a justice oriented outcome in its own right from that perspective, but I would have really loved if she d included a section for each type that explicitly explored ways their strengths and weaknesses play into the pursuit of social justice that would have felt both really fresh and exciting and cohesive to her stated intentions As a whole, though, this is a wonderful addition to the canon of Enneagram material and adds something really valuable to the conversation It s also genuinely fun to read, which is a plus

    The exploration of the enneagram numbers is solid, but the tone of this book just ruined it for me The excessive cultural references and profanity made it seem like it was trying too hard, rather than making it accessible and relevant.

    I picked this one up due to an interest in the enneagram and after following Hannah Paasch on Twitter for the last few years I haven t listened to the associated podcast yet, but the writing here definitely reflects Hannah s style on social media Don t pick this one up if swearing, casual language, and random asides are going to distract you this is not written as a dry text But don t let the style fool you into thinking it s light and insubstantial either The author knows their stuff Coming into reading this, I was pretty sure I was a 4 but confused about some aspects that seem to cross over into 5, 6 or 9 territory This is the first text I ve read that really confirmed and consolidated my understanding of my 4 ness, specifically as a 4w5 Moreso, it is written in a way that I felt heard and understood I probably highlighted 3 4 of the chapter on my type Hannah Paasch cares deeply about each type and each chapter is not just a clinical study but includes exhortations towards becoming true to yourself and really understanding and accepting why you are the way you are Definitely worth a read if you re interested in the enneagram.

    I didn t realize that Millenneagram is a big online thing I just saw this on a new books list and took it on impulse because the title was kind of funny and I m really soft for personality test nonsense It s a very aesthetically appealing book and it definitely assumes you already have some familiarity with the Enneagram system It has a quick and dirty quiz to sort you which was WRONG for me, it pegged me as a Two when I m obviously a Nine How dare Anyway, I liked her humorous tone and there are some good insights in here, if you re into this kind of thing Which I am If you re not already, this won t convert you.

    Despite apparently being written by Al Swearingen s daughter, this was a very helpful, fascinating, and practical approach to the enneagram The chapter on 4s made me feel seen Highly recommended.

    A funny, insightful, irreverent, and warm hearted guide to the Enneagram Paasch brilliantly balances all the ways the Enneagram is a tool for revealing the worst AND best parts of ourselves lots of books tend to tip too far to one side or the other Contains maybe THE BEST explanation of intuitive triads I ve ever read, and thankfully wastes very little time on the history of the Enneagram I get why teachers go over this, but seriously every book names the same few figures and covers the same events and I always get bored and want to skip through to the meaty stuff So much good information here, even for people who may consider themselves very well versed in Enneagram theory already What I most appreciate is how Paasch presents disintegration not as failure or a bad thing, but rather a stress response that can give us a lot of information and sometimes even the tools to protect ourselves and pull us out of our ruts She also brings loads of compassion to every type, especially the ones that tend to get cast in a negative light Eights and Threes, I m looking at you Overall, I ve never enjoyed being dragged and diagnosed .

    Millenneagram was the perfect book for me to start a deeper dive in understanding the Enneagram as a whole Before this, I had dabbled in reading up on my own number, but I was interested in learning about all types Not only do I feel like I have a better understanding of the Enneagram, but I ve never felt as seen and understood after reading my own Enneagram number chapter Wow Paasch does such an amazing job at humanizing each of the types From some of my own research online, I ve seen some not so great descriptions of each of the types that made me cringe While Paasch doesn t shy away from calling you out on your bullshit, she does it in such a way that invites you to recognize that that is not the only part of you, but rather, a place you go in while stressed The Enneagram has been such a helpful tool for me to navigate the world as a Four Paasch writes in a relatable, accessible way that I really appreciated as of a casual connoisseur of the Enneagram My only critique is that this book is full of pop culture references that appeal to millennials that I m not sure if this book will stand the test of time or if it would be helpful to those in other generations I guess only time will tell

    Some of it I really, really loved the content was solid and a few times I found myself scrambling to re listen to a section to jot down great insights I found the tone and especially the language wearying I m not opposed to a bit of salty language and have used a word or two in print and conversation But it was excessive to the point of distracting.

    If you re like me, maybe you ve struggled to find out which enneagram number you truly are LOOK NO FURTHER My family and I OBSESSED over this book this weekend, pouring hours into meaningful conversation working to better understand how we work as a family unit and how we are personally wired I gained so much knowledge and appreciation for the enneagram after reading this book It makes total sense now Hannah, YOU ROCK This is a hilarious and true look at the enneagram that is a MUST read You re going to want to add this to your library as soon as possible Thank you Harper One for my gifted copy in exchange for my honest review.

    I loved this one It s unflinching and frank, it s hilarious and honest, and it s SO GOOD It s like the enneagram and Urban Dictionary got blended up together and this book came out, or like an old personality type got a new makeover, complete with tattoos and piercings and a sassy new outfit I have loved following Hannah on Twitter for a while, and am just so, so, so glad she poured her heart and soul into these pages for us to have and learn from and love forever I mean, anyone who calls enneagram Ones The Machine is someone who GETS IT This one isn t for your grandma or your preteens, but it s definitely for anyone who wants to dive deeper into who they are and how to be the best version of that self and who isn t afraid to get hit hard with the truth in the process It s feisty and fiery and fun and fresh and I loved it, loved it, loved it.
