Wagner Enneagram Personality Style Scales (WEPSS)

Measure and Improve the Drivers of Organisational Performance

The Enneagram is one of the most useful tools for understanding personality styles at work, in relationships, and for self-awareness. The WEPSS is a standardized, reliable, and valid Enneagram inventory, the only one published by a major psychological test company and reviewed in Buros's Mental Measurements Yearbook, a respected authority in the testing field.

About the Enneagram

The Enneagram (nine points) is a circumplex model of personality styles that maps nine points of view, nine emotional response patterns, and nine sets of behavioral trait-like tendencies. Each style has resourceful self-enhancing features which can become non-resourceful and self defeating if used excessively or exclusively. Balance involves functioning from the resourceful or high side of our core style while having access to the resources of all the styles.

There are nine players on our inner team. One is usually a favorite while the other players have their roles and strategies to contribute towards an effective winning response. We might be uncomfortable with some of our team members and so they get less playing time - though they might have something valuable to contribute once we get to know them.

Each style has a :

  • sweet spot, an intuitive perceptual edge with a corresponding behavioral competence that contributes to interpersonal relationships and team performance
  • blind spot, those parts of the self and world that may not be seen clearly because the interests and concerns of that type point them in other directions
  • hot spot, an area of vulnerability that is triggered when what is important to that type gets discounted
The Enneagram and WEPSS spell out these areas for all nine styles.
