The Social Styles, or Hornevian Groups, were named in honor of Karen Horney, a psychiatrist who developed Freud’s work by identifying three fundamental ways in which people attempt to solve inner conflicts. The social styles reveal the strategies each type employs to get its needs met.  During this highly interactive session, we will create three panels, made up of meeting attendees, to explore how Social Styles play a part in our responses to Life.

Assertive Types (3, 7, and 8) insist or demand that they get what they want. Their approach is active and direct as they go after what they believe they need.

Compliant Types (Earn your way) (1, 2, and 6) all attempt to earn something by placating their inner critic to get what they want. They do their best to be “good boys and girls” to get their needs met.

Withdrawn Types (4, 5 and 9) Withdraw from others to get what they want. They disengage from others to deal with their needs.

FACILITATOR: Susan Mast is one of the founding members of the Enneagram Enthusiasts, who continues to serve on the leadership team, bringing quality programming to the group. Susan is a retired math teacher who taught patterns as a way to solve problems. When she was introduced to the enneagram in 2004 she saw how this personality model fit in with her thinking about patterns, only this time it was patterns with people and their core personality-type.

Susan took a series of 9 classes with local Enneagram teacher, Ron Corn, and then attended the beginning series to certify as a teacher with Helen Palmer and David Daniels, leaders in the narrative tradition. She continued working with Ron Corn practicing the prerequisite skills such as typing interviews and interviewing panels. She continues to learn about herself and has thoroughly enjoyed being a part of this growing Enneagram Enthusiasts community.
