Enneagram, Morpho-physiognomy and Bach Flowers: Perfectionist type, Mercurian type and Beech type

Published —

How many people with these characteristics have you met?

Three approaches that help to better know our personality and that of others in order to harmonize and relate to each other: Bach Flowers, Enneagram and Morphophysiognomics.

Bach Flowers,

The "Beech" person tends to be aggressive, especially verbally. Violent and aggressive with words, arrogant, criticizes others, but hates to be criticized, because she is touchy, revealing a lack of self-esteem.

Edward Bach, the British doctor who discovered the energetic properties of flowers as natural remedies, defined Beech's personality as "intolerant, with internal inferiority and insecure". To defend herself, she chooses harshness and condemns others instead of improving herself.

They are often very tough, vain, not very empathic and self-centered, so they like to be flattered and admired. If challenged they react by putting themselves on the defensive and isolating themselves from the context, they denigrate others and rise above others by posing as superior people, thus revealing an intimate lack of self-esteem. These are people who tend to humiliate, mortify and despise others because they have suffered their own humiliation; it is a strategy of self-defense that they trigger by repressing true emotions and mortifying the ability to empathize with others. By rejecting the voice of their inner self, they make sure to become more and more rigid in character, little inclined to be understanding with others.

From the point of view of the therapy of Bach FlowersThe remedy of this flower can be administered not only to people with these characteristics, but also to the elderly who have lived a very rigid life, or to those who have reacted harshly to the events and difficulties of life with a well-structured personality.


In his disharmonious state he presents himself as a nervous, intolerant and hypercritical individual. He humiliates and despises as a reflection of his experience, humiliated and despised; this way of his is a self-defense that represses true emotions and the ability to identify with others.


The physical symptoms of the disharmonious state are related to excessive stiffness, nervousness and aggressiveness, such as, for example, tendency to have muscle tension, cramps, joint pain, nervous tics, spasms, bruxism, sinusitis, hysteria, sclerosis, cervical pain, posture and spinal problems.


In his harmonic state he acquires compassion and the ability to highlight the positive aspects in things or people with; he is more tolerant, willing to listen to others with deep empathy. Although he has the impulse to say "his", he does so with grace, avoiding being labeled as a person the "stink under the nose".


If you make reference toEnneagram,another tool that studies personalities with the aim of their harmonization, the Bach Beech person could be related to the Type 1: The Perfectionist another tool that studies personalities with the aim of their harmonization, the Bach Beech person could be related to the

Strict, structured and procedural type, he disdains compromises and half measures, so he reasons in binary and dichotomous mode dividing things into right or wrong people. Judge "sputasentenze" without possibility of appeal, approves or condemns on the basis of an ideal order to which he refers. If it were a motto, it would certainly be: "Order and discipline". 

For this reason he is easy prey to ideologies, a lover of ethics and rules that he requires himself and others to respect without hiding behind useless excuses. Type Ones are serious, conscientious and sensitive people with a deep-rooted sense of responsibility that leads them to feel personally obliged to improve themselves and the world.

Like the Beech types also the enneatype Type 1: The Perfectionist is inflexible, rigid, strict and critical, poisonous with those who break the rules. The ideal image of himself is that of a good boy or a good girl, with a strong external reference that, when he fails, throws him into a state of deep frustration, because he is sensitive to disapproval. The opinion of others is important to know good or bad as a person, whether good or bad and therefore to recognize value and self-esteem.


When there is a lack of order and discipline, it loses self-control and the mechanism of anger is unleashed, which can easily become rage. In the stress phase, the compulsive reactive characteristics are accentuated, and revenge and punishment are carried out. Self-pity tickers and feels misunderstood.


Linked to rigidity, avoidance of humiliation and shame.

  • Obsessive-compulsive trends
  • Cervical pain
  • Skin Problems
  • Eye diseases
  • Trigeminal neuralgia
  • Heart disease
  • Allergies
  • Tensions


In the phase of harmonic rest he accesses a more serene, sociable and understanding self, tolerant towards disobedience and approximation. He welcomes the relativity of things, he opens himself to pleasure and fun. He stops thinking: "Now I'll make you straight" and becomes reasonable, able to adapt.


Finally, if we consider the Morphophysiognomics as an indicator of personality and relationship method, the Bach Beech person could be related to the Martial type, characterized by a strong sense of duty and discipline. Righteous, combative people, animated and passionate discussion, burning controversy, often need to take sides.

Like their shapes, they are square, authoritarian, strict and imperative types. For them it is very important to respect both external and internal authority, they function just like a martial law, heroic and implacable against traitors and those who defect an order, understood both as the right structure of things and people.

They love the exact sciences, they are reliable performers with a great sense of responsibility. 


In the disharmonious phase they can totally lack diplomacy, become violent, aggressive, overly challenging, authoritarian, accusatory. Maniacal, in relationships can manifest obsessiveness, dangerous unmotivated and excessive jealousy.


Linked to the tendency to "warm up" and get excited without bending over backwards.

  • Fever
  • Skin rashes
  • Inflammation
  • Pletora
  • Liver problems


In the harmonic phase, people are shown to be magnanimous, intrepid, generous, prone to acts of heroism and vigorous. Defenders of the weakest, they fight ethically without giving in to abuse.
