Enneagrams are a personality assessment system and analytic tool used by behavioral therapists and people who like to fill out forms about themselves. Enneagrams are designed to help patients become aware of problematic patterns in relationships and start to manage those behaviors.
The term comes from the Greek root, ennea, meaning “nine”, and gram, meaning “gram”. Here we’ll take a look at a discipline-specific enneagram set. Percussion enneagrams use a list of descriptive personality types drawn from common typologies who like to hit or bang on things. Perc- from the Greek, means “drum things”, and is qualified by the suffix -ussion, “that you hit”.
