|Spiral Dynamics describes the dynamic of change in individuals and societies according to the evolution of the conditions of life. Spiral Dynamics is an open-ended model mapping levels of values and how these levels link together. Each enneatype can access each level of the Spiral, but we can be trapped in one level according to our profile. So, knowing the two systems can give a better understanding of our capacities of adaptation to societies and corporations. Spiral Dynamics can also be used to make the descriptions of the enneatypes more independent of our culture and easier to understand and accept by people living in very different cultures.
