About The Enneagram Institute®

The Enneagram Institute was formed in 1996 by the late Don Richard Riso and by Russ Hudson, two of the most respected scholars in the Enneagram world. Building on the success of their best-selling books, which have become widely recognized as foundational treatises in the field, The Enneagram Institute has been and continues to be a leader in the research and development of modern Enneagram theory. The Institute’s personality assessment, the Riso-Hudson Enneagram Type Indicator (the RHETI®), remains the most precise tool available for helping individuals ascertain their basic Enneagram type, and, together with our detailed Type descriptions and the Riso-Hudson books, provides the necessary starting point for compassionate personal inquiry into the more profound truths about our personal identity. In short, simply knowing our personality type is not the final destination; it is merely the beginning. The Enneagram Institute is devoted to encouraging each of us to see ourselves at a deeper, more essential level. Our office is in Stone Ridge, New York.
