What People Say About the Video Guide:
“A mine of real gold! What is beguiling about Condon's work, besides an uncommonly fine literary style, is the clarity with which he points out Enneagram styles that most students have trouble seeing.” – The National Catholic Reporter
“A real find! Condon's movie guide provides not only a snappy introduction to the Enneagram's personality types, but write-ups of about 1000 movies focusing on the main characters and their behaviors. A series of movies exhibiting one type will give the reader a great sense of both the basic issues and their variations for that type. Condon provides capsule reviews plus good viewing and study suggestions.” – Inner Journeys Book Review
“In becoming a psychotherapist it was always clear that reading great novels taught me more than any psychology course. Thomas Condon has taken film-the art form of our time-to show the mind heart and bodily experience of each Enneagram style. Truly a great book!” – Margaret Frings Keyes Author, Emotions & The Enneagram
“Not since Helen Palmer broke the ice with her classic work The Enneagram has learning this fascinating system of personality types been so easy. Considered to be one of the oldest forms of psychological assessment, the Enneagram has remained elusive to many, but, thanks to Thomas Condon, here is a format (finally) that anyone can understand. This book emphasizes the illustration of the nine Enneagram types through observation by providing the personality types for almost one thousand movie characters. The Guide is an easy read and functions as an admission ticket to a realm in which we can gain a deeper understanding of movie characters and personality types.
This is a must-read for people who already know the Enneagram – it will help them to deepen their insights – and it is a great introduction for the newcomer. The actors and movies are clearly indexed so readers can easily find their favorite actors and delve deeply into the movie characters' psyches. There is no stuffy psychobabble, just clear descriptions about using our most celebrated medium – film – as a tool of psychological discovery.
