Enneagrams used in personality typological studies are only one of numerous types of diagrams that model actual and potential interrelationships based on 9 factors, para-meters, or variables (=FPVs). However, the psychological-sociological discipline – like any field of investigation (whether non-scientific or scientific) – has to deal with so many FPVs that the over-simplistic enneagrams and similar conceptual figures do not reveal all possible interconnections. When all known FPVs are integrated, many hundreds of additional complexities become obvious. Several linkage or concatenation diagrams useful in handling more than just 9 (=ennea-), or multiple of 9, FPVs are offered here; psychosocial “systems” are as complex as any of the earth science-based complexes, like the world-wide ecological systems (e.g., Gaia-type) which are controlled by “innumerable” FPVs. Investigations should go far beyond the simplistic enneagrams.
