Abstract: The way we interact is important so that we can have successful and efficient lifestyles. The way we treat people is important. We create different environments with the interactions we choose to make, and sometimes those interactions are often confusing to understand. Human connection boils down to open communication and honesty. Does knowing somebody’s personality type make it easier to collaborate with them? This project looks at the interactions between creatives based on their Enneagram Personality type. The Enneagram is broken down into 9 interconnecting personalities. These numbers represent more apparent personality traits as well as common-ground and compatibility factors between the numbers. When it comes to collaboration, especially in a creative field, working with others is inevitable, and empathy for others is crucial. This attitude engenders a healthy relationship between people, and it allows us to think more objectively with a basic understanding of the other person’s needs. By using my peers as a foundation for my artistic expression, I had the opportunity to learn more about each number in depth, and create displays that show interactivity between enneagram numbers to support the methods in creative collaborative learning.
