Wyman offers abbreviated explanations of both the MBTI and the Enneagram (one chapter each) and an interesting perspective on how both are integral in understanding self. Discounting any emphasis on wings, subtypes, or degree or level of mental health or spiritual state, Wyman presents her own theory on why individuals operating out of the same Enneagram number can appear to be so different: differing Core Selves as profiled by the MBTI assessment. She proposes that internal tension and conflict results from incompatible qualities of one's Myers-Briggs type and Enneagram type. As a psychotherapist working almost entirely with women, she believes the only way to resolve the tension and conflict is through Inner-Child Healing (which she discusses at greater length). Wyman presents many tragic case studies, but manages to remain witty as well as pointed in her overall writing style.
