About the Book

From Instagram’s snarkiest Enneagram expert comes a hilarious and insightful book that shows how embracing our shadow side is our best path toward greater self-awareness and compassion

Most Enneagram books today focus on stroking ego rather than challenging it. These pages are filled with a no-frills, hilarious reckoning with the ways we cope when facing stress or fear--aka our shadow sides--while unlocking the life-changing wisdom of the Enneagram. The Unfiltered Enneagram offers “practical strategies for liberating yourself from your own garbage,” writes Elizabeth Orr, creator of the viral Rude Ass Enneagram account, public practitioner of Enneagram, and associate chaplain at Wake Forest University. She believes that when we learn from both our healthy and shadow sides, we can jumpstart genuine, practical growth and actually begin to love the whole of ourselves.

Readers will discover how courageously and comically acknowledging the worst attributes of their Enneagram type can surprisingly bring out the best in them.

Filled with laugh-out-loud descriptions, sobering truths, and inspiring prompts, each chapter is an under-the-rug look at the nine Enneagram Types:

  • Type One — R Is for Reformer (and Resentment)
  • Type Two — Self-Sacrifice with Some Serious Strings Attached
  • Type Three — Hall of Mirrors in a House of Cards
  • Type Four — Feelin’ Misunderstood (and I’m Going to Make it Your Problem)
  • Type Five — When Intellectual Maximalism meets Emotional Minimalism
  • Type Six — Who Needs Trust When I’ve Got Projection?
  • Type Seven — The Paradoxical Paralysis of Making Too Many Awesome Plans
  • Type Eight — Large, in Charge, and Just This Side of Belligerent
  • Type Nine — Comfortably Numb (and Impressively Stubborn)

Insightful for long-time enthusiasts, pragmatic for newer fans, and hilarious and accessible to all, The Unfiltered Enneagram shines a generous light on the good, the bad and the ugly side of you —inviting you to see that the only way to find self-compassion is to embrace wholeness.
