Latin is well known for its famous sayings so is it really a surprise that I’ve created a post to highlight Latin phrases for each enneagram type?
In my family, we love Latin. All 5 of my children are taking Latin (some more fluent than I am but I’m working to change that!)
Have you studied Latin? If not, you might want to think about it!
Latin is great at increasing your vocabulary and English grammar knowledge. It can increase understanding in English literature and history.
Taking Latin is like learning 6 romance languages at once because 90% of the vocabulary in romance languages come from Latin. If you take Latin, it becomes very easy to be multi-lingual!
But I digress… You get it, I love Latin.
I love Latin and I love the enneagram!
Unsure of your type?
Without further ado…. here are Latin phrases for each of the nine enneagram types!
