In this episode of the Awareness to Action Enneagram podcast, Mario Sikora, María José Munita and Seth "Creek" Creekmore focus on the potential limitations of the Enneagram. They discuss how not to use it and why it’s important to have conviction and humility when exploring the Enneagram. They highlight some things that they’ve seen to suggest caution and critical thinking.

“The Enneagram is a really powerful tool with lots of great uses, but no tool does everything.” -Mario [02:28]

“When we limit other people by their type is a form of dehumanization.” -Creek [26:21]

“It goes against the possibility of me understanding myself better because you oversimplified the model trying to apply to so many areas that it loses its power.” -María José [27:14]
