Pope Benedict XVI is to resign.
I think everyone was surprised less Enneagram professionals who saw Ratzinger highly developed Six personality. If we combine the concepts of the two disciplines that better study any personality structure - Graphology and Enneagram - we can easily analyze this honest, courageous and coherent step of 265 º Pope of the Catholic Church. As we can see from the samples, his handwriting is small, phlegmatic, with significant simplifications that make it unreadable sometimes.

His handwriting is pasty, with a weak pressure, connected with arcades and lacking in dynamism rhythm. At times it reminds me the handwriting of Charles de Foucauld, the extraordinary French mystic. Father Moretti would say that the handwriting of His Holiness involves two trends: the careful observation and the contradiction.

As a graphological rule we know that the smaller the size, the more detail you put in focus and therefore the greater the mental effort needed to unify them into a gestalt. The details are so important to a 6 personality, as for any subject with this kind of handwriting: Figure prevails over the background, which makes losing the overall view. Joseph Ratzinger - as a good 6 with wing 5 – is not a lover of a strong advance since an efficient monitoring and intellectualization of his emotions are his enneatype amalgam. His small handwriting - the willingness to adapt, to subordinate their developed 6 - joins the big emerging, the resistance to any change possible: his superego.

Very different from John Paul II (enneatype 1, visceral), Ratzinger is rational, a thinking man, an erudite who was taken from his favorite desk to a place he never wanted to be: the throne of Peter. This is called Coherence and Relationship in Morettiana School. Consistency and relationship of a enneatypes 6 integrated allowing the ego to act knowingly. His writing is vertical, prioritizing the cerebral over the emotional area. This confirms its enneatype (or is it vice versa?) belonging to the cerebral triad, rational, “centerverted”. Is he communicative...? Very little. The movement is slowed. Stopped. Weak. The narrowness between words, the arcades ... speak of this lack. The enneatypes 6 have a low profile, very simply that - however - do not lose their distinction.

Fear is an integral part of the structure around 6. Ratzinger is not immune to this compulsion. Two worlds - internal and external - live in him. But like any healthy individual is courageous in defending their beliefs and thoughts: this leads him to lose the fear and move forward. Something very difficult in the way of the six’s integration. The Holy Father is acting from responsibility. A Six eneatype affirms: "Semper facere rectum" ("Always do the right things").

He is reflective, thanks to his five wing, and like the 6 of his native Germany, Ratzinger speaks through his body: steady and direct gaze, with slight zigzags derived from his fears and with a distinct air of permanent concern. On February 28 at 20 pm, Rome time, the See of Peter will be vacant. Benedict withdraws from public life to a closing convent.

The Pope is isolated ... but not far, but in his inner world, familiar and known, which gives security and support, basic desires of all 6 eneatypes. Not to adventure, not to contingency. He goes to Castelgandolfo and then to a sector of the Vatican: something normal in all 6w5.

Ratzinger is absolutely convinced that cannot continue his ministry. And he also knows that there is no solution for it. Only 6 in full light, with a high level of development can take a decision as courageous and expose...
