The Analyst is the fifth path of the Ennealogy archetypes. It was given its name because of its pervasive curiosity to figure out how things work. Sharing many characteristics with Mercury, The Analyst is quick, intense, and restless with a very active mind. Possessing the Mercurial youthful presence and an insatiable curiosity, The Analyst is also interested in collecting data. They have a natural desire to thoroughly innerstand themselves, others and the world around them. Such inquisitiveness gives rise to a dual nature which helps these visionaries not only see both sides of an issue, but also attracts them to “the unusual”—information that most people overlook.
