Famous People by Enneagram Type According to Don Richard Riso

While these people have never taken an enneagram test as far as we know, we can only make educated guesses about their personalities by their biographies and character analyzations. The conclusions are based on observation, logic, and intuition. What is in parantheses is my addition.

More discussion about the enneagram types of celebrities can be found at Jan's Movies, Literature, and Public Life Forum.
