Personality is a compensatory mechanism to deal with the loss of our true self.It is a scaffolding to hold the fragile self.
By understanding our various personalities we realize the way to transcend our limited persona. ego is a term often used in spiritual circles. But many of us keep wondering what is ego. Simply speaking ego is our identifications with any state of mind, body or possessions. What ever we identify with is our ego. I am doctor,I am sad, I am happy I am this body,......etc.But important thing to realise is that we are not one personalities. We have multiple sub personalities each with different agenda, beliefs, motivations in them. So when we talk about enneagram types one of them is dominating rest other are dormant.
