    I’ve read scads of Enneagram books, but not one like this offering self-care tips for my specific type, the Individualist. I’m to: *Stop procrastinating *Accept life as it is *Realize that ordinary is fine *Know I’m not what I create These are apt steps for someone who wants to stand out as a talented, one-of-a-kind creative. The book also offers self-care ideas for the other eight Enneagram types, plus tips on how partners can provide support.

    This gentle guide helps people recognize the self-care routines and personal growth choices that may be most necessary for them based on their Enneagram type. The author explains at the beginning that this is not a bubble bath type of self-care book, but that it focuses on the choices that people can make to overcome their personal struggles, offset their weaknesses, and shore up their strengths. I found this book very insightful, and value the different perspective on self-care. As an Enneagram This gentle guide helps people recognize the self-care routines and personal growth choices that may be most necessary for them based on their Enneagram type. The author explains at the beginning that this is not a bubble bath type of self-care book, but that it focuses on the choices that people can make to overcome their personal struggles, offset their weaknesses, and shore up their strengths. I found this book very insightful, and value the different perspective on self-care. As an Enneagram One, I am particularly inclined to be scornful of self-care messages that tell you that you are "perfect," should do everything that you want, and should fulfill all of your desires and motivations before thinking about others. This book helps readers conceptualize self-care as a process of attending to your own deep needs and inner work in order to be a better person, lead a more fulfilled life, and engage in healthier relationships with other people. I really appreciate that approach. I ended up skimming through some of the chapters that involved types that I don't identify with or recognize within my closest circles, but I hugely enjoyed the ones that felt immediate and necessary to me, and trust that this means that other people will identify just as deeply with the chapters that I skimmed. This is a great resource for people who are familiar with the Enneagram but unsure how to make practical life choices based on their self-knowledge, and it is also a good introduction to the personality system for someone who has yet to type themselves. This book covers enough information to meet the needs of both audiences, and each chapter also includes perspectives on how people can understand and support loved ones with that chapter's Enneagram type. I think that this can be a helpful resource for a lot of people, and may be a great book for couples or close friends to read together and discuss to get the most out of the ideas and help each other put them into practice. I received a temporary digital copy through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    Good guide to self-care based in Enneagram type. I appreciated how it was focused on long-term suggestions and not simply things like ‘take a bath’ and ‘yoga.’ My type (1: The Idealist) was spot on and brought new light as to why the suggestions may help. The guide at the end of each chapter as to how to best support those of others types is something I found helpful and plan to incorporate with family/friends in the future.

    If you're into the Enneagram as I have been for the last few weeks, and you like focusing on self-care (which let's be honest we all need more of in 2020), this book will be a great addition to your home library. This book breaks down each type and tells you what they struggle with and what type of self-care would help the most. While the ideas were so-so for my type, they were spot on for my husband and I really enjoyed reading them and taking down some ideas on how I can help him.

They were so right for him that I went back and reread mine and am saving them for another read, too. I've also used it to read about my friends so I can have ways to help them on their self-care journey. Super fun read. with gratitude to edelweiss and tiller press for an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review.

    There are many books about the enneagram, but this is the only one that specifically addresses self-care (self-care as in caring for your mental and emotional well-being). There is one chapter for each enneagram type, and I like that it talks about both how to care for yourself and how to care for your loved ones. It is not an introduction to the enneagram, so read another book first to determine your type. I received an ARC from NetGalley. The book will be release on December 15, 2020.

    This book, while short, is designed to help people realize their personality type and to give each type tips on how to self-improve. The book identifies nine (9) types of Enneagram: Idealist, Helper, Achiever, Individualist, Observer, Loyalist, Enthusiast, Challenger and Peacemaker. Within each section, the book illustrates what each types characteristics are as well as to reinforce the positive characteristics while trying to diminish the type's "fear." For example, the Challenger is identified This book, while short, is designed to help people realize their personality type and to give each type tips on how to self-improve. The book identifies nine (9) types of Enneagram: Idealist, Helper, Achiever, Individualist, Observer, Loyalist, Enthusiast, Challenger and Peacemaker. Within each section, the book illustrates what each types characteristics are as well as to reinforce the positive characteristics while trying to diminish the type's "fear." For example, the Challenger is identified as someone who tries to take on a lot, but the book recommends setting up boundaries on what you will do and what you will not do. Basically, do not take on every "challenge," because it will negatively affect your health and your relationships. It is good to say "no" sometimes and to take things slowly, because there is no need to rush. While I was reading this book, I could not concretely identify which type I am. I feel that I am a combination of the Helper, the Observer and the Peacemaker. While I like a challenge sometimes, I do not go out of my way to add more work to my plate than I know I can do. Similarly, while I do enjoy new experiences, I do not need to be always entertained and therefore I feel that I am not an "Enthusiast." The Idealist seems a bit extreme for me. I know that there are things that I cannot do that are perfectly done, but that just means that there is room for improvement. The Achiever also seems a bit too extreme in that there are instances where I can "shape-shift" into what other people's desired person is. I mean I can talk to many different people, but I do not go out of my way to get close to "leaders." I might have a slight Loyalist in me, because I am not a huge fan of change, but I can get used to it and I try to be grateful for everything I receive. That just leaves Helper, Observer and Peacemaker. As someone who was raised to help those less fortunate than me as well as my analytical training in the legal field, I feel that sometimes I try to help people more than I should. Additionally, sometimes I step to far back mentally when I am observing something and that affects me from reacting right away. I am truly considering the tips that are in these three sections, which include briefly telling others what I need, being more courageous, and make my opinion known. This seems like a worthwhile book to read if you are interested in personality types. **I received this as part of a Goodreads giveaway.

    Five stars to “Take Care of Your Type: An Enneagram Guide to Self-Care” by Christina S. Wilcox. If you know me, you know I love the enneagram, and you also know I am about as Type 3 as one can get. I’ve read a lot of Enneagram books, but I loved the focus this book had on REAL self-care. Maybe it’s because the author is also a Type 3, but I was nodding my head along to everything the author said about my type. The self-care tips here are thorough, actionable, and not always easy.

I was skeptical that this book wouldn’t have anything new to offer, but boy was I wrong! I highly recommend this for an Enneagram lovers out there! Thanks to NetGalley and Tiller Press for the ARC!

    This has been the perfect book to start my year with. If you’re into the enneagram (or don’t know much about it yet), @christinaswilcox is a must-follow. So much care and consideration goes into the things she posts, and it was no different with this book. ⁣ ⁣ I was impressed by the way she tailored each type’s section, to work for them — not just the subject-matter, but the way she presents it (i.e. data and research for the Type 5 🙌🏽).

It’s such valuable insight into the things you can do for yourself, and your loved ones, that speak directly the heart of the type.⁣

    👍🏻: This book gives 10-15 ideas for each enneagram type on how to take care of themselves, as well as 3 ways we can care for each type specifically. I learned a lot from this book on what each type struggles with & how I can love them more. I learned a lot about myself & what I can do to take for myself & had some really good conversations with friends about their types. 👎🏻: While I enjoyed reading about each type, I didn’t take a ton from reading what each type could do for themselves.

    What I liked the best about this book was its authentic voice. I especially liked the explanations and how each type description has a section about self care and how to be the best version of yourself. It even explains how someone else can encourage a particular type. Seriously this book will be an asset to any individual and or a corporation looking to gain insight on prospective employees. For a good read its an encyclopedic of information. Love the book.

    I loved this book! It talks about each type and includes traits of the type, what types of self-care they need, their possible wings, and how others can support them. This is the first book I’ve read about the enneagram and I loved it! Going into it I had identified as a type 4 only. I hadn’t really found either of the wings more dominant, but after reading this book I realized I am a 4w3. This book would be helpful for any type of relationship if you know their type, even as some kind of PD.
