Learn Your Enneagram Type with an Enneagram Typing Interview

Online Enneagram tests are notoriously inaccurate.

Why? Because the Enneagram goes deeper; it is less behavioral and more interior focused. It highlights your blind spots and invites you to develop a transformative capacity to self-observe. 

This work is most effective when you know your type, and a face-to-face interview is one of the best ways to learn your type.


for individuals:
OPTION 1, for beginners
• Learn from a hand-selected Narrative Enneagram certified associate  

OPTION 2, for beginners + those “ready for more”
• Learn from Enneagram expert, Leslie Hershberger

OPTION 3, for experienced Enneagram students and/or teachers
• 5 SESSION Enneagram Deep Dive program with Leslie


Option 1, a single session Enneagram Typing Interview, is only available with one of our Narrative Enneagram certified associates chosen by Leslie. (Leslie does not offer stand alone typing interviews unless it is with a family member or team member of a current client).

In this session, you will engage in the Typing Process through the lens of The Narrative Enneagram tradition and The Center’s Approach, with an Enneagram coach who will help you learn:

  • Your thought patterns
  • Your emotional patterns
  • Your sensory/bodily clues


  • Online assessment.
  • 60 minute conversation with your coach to review the assessment and discover your type.
  • A copy of Leslie’s Enneagram Report.


Niki Pappas is trained in the Narrative Enneagram tradition and has received her practitioner certification from TNE.

I invited Niki on board as she is an outstanding listener who has conducted countless Enneagram typing interviews, equipping her to help you identify your Enneagram style. We use both an online test AND the Narrative method for listening, and Niki is well trained with insight I trust.

Niki is passionate about the Enneagram as a rich tool that enables us to increase our self-awareness and self-compassion, thereby creating brave space for growth and transformation.

As a heart type (4SP), she recognizes and applies the Enneagram’s power toward understanding of and compassion toward others, so that we can expand all of the relationships in our lives — relationships with family, friends, colleagues, and the world. The Enneagram works at all of these levels — I, We, and It.

Niki’s life experiences and growth-oriented approach enable her to connect with and offer guidance to people in many life stages and situations.

Her career includes 20+ years in marketing research consulting (client and supplier side) and a subsequent decade of exploration, education, and practice as a certified integrative nutrition coach, yoga teacher, bodywork, and now Enneagram practitioner.

She is a mother of two twenty-something sons and has grown through two marriages and many fulfilling relationships.

In addition to working with private clients and as a member of Leslie’s team, Niki is Director of Membership and Operations at The Hive in Northside, and facilitates diverse courses, events, and cohorts.

Getting to the WHY:

It’s one thing to know who you are. We tend to learn that with life experience.

Yet the Enneagram struck me by its accuracy and its ability to get underneath our patterns to the “why’s.”

We are complex human beings with distinct stories.

Step into yours.
