dc.description.abstract322 participants completed two online self-assessments to demonstrate the use of two theories—the Enneagram and the SCARF Model—that focus on core instincts and motivations, as a way to facilitate self- awareness, social-awareness, and development. The study was comprised using both Qualitative and Quantitative research methods to measure a relationship between the two theories, within the context of existing literature on personality theory. The Enneagram is a personality theory based on core fears and motivations, comprised of 9 Core types and 3 Subtypes. Most comparable to the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator or The Big Five, the Enneagram also has similarities to Murray’s theory of needs, Adler’s theory of social influence on personality, and McAdam’s three levels of personality. The SCARF model is comprised of five “domains” based on neurological/biological threat-and-reward responses within social settings: Status, Certainty, Autonomy, Relatedness, and Fairness. Initial hypothesis: the Social Subtype would be higher in Relatedness and Status; the Self-Preservation Subtype would be higher in Certainty and Fairness; and lastly, the Sexual Subtype would be higher in Autonomy and Relatedness.en_US
