Your Enneagram Type?!

Pseudolonewolf Jan 14, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The ENNEAGRAM is a personality system thing that uses 9 NUMBERED TYPES!
Learning about it has enriched my life a lot, so I want to share it with people.

Each of the 9 types has its own characteristics, but it'd take too long to describe them here.

They come in three clumps:
- (8, 9, 1) are 'guts' types;
- (2, 3, 4) are 'heart' types;
- (5, 6, 7) are 'mind' types.
EACH PERSON HAS THREE TYPES - one from each group - ordered by their importance.

Furthermore, each type is 'flavoured' by an adjacent type called a WING.
For example, type 1 comes in two variations; 1w2 (1 with a 2 wing), and 1w9.

The end result is something like 1w9-4w5-6w7.
That'd mean that person was mostly defined by 9-flavoured type 1, but they'd also have aspects of a 5-flavoured type 4 and a 7-flavoured type 6.

I, uh, suppose it's FAIRLY COMPLICATED! o_O

You can get an idea of your primary type here: [link] (Scroll down to the questions!)
Or your 'tritype' here: [link]
And you can read about each type in more detail here: [link]

I hope at least one person gets something out of this!!
I'd love to hear what types people got from those tests and stuff! Or which ones they can most relate to.

I'm 4w5-5w4-9w1 myself, and understanding this has explained so very, very much about myself, my behaviour, and my life as a whole.

Perhaps I did something wrong... the test told me I'm a 5, but not about any other numbers :O

I linked to two tests; the first one gives you an idea of your primary type, but the second one gives you an idea of your full tritype thing.

aah, I get it now!
This is my "trifix": 5w6, 1w9, 3w2

It's surprisingly accurate!

I am a female and a 2. It is very tough I just gotta say.
Oh gosh enneagram I love you.
3w2 here. My high drive to impress and to be liked/useful is the reason why.

Trifix is 6w5, 2w3, 9w1.

Type 6 with a 5 wing, "The Defender".

Pretty accurate! :dance:

And dinnae mind the trolls. We know this quiz is just for funsies.

It's bullshit. I answered the answers as geninunely, and their evaluation of me is far off.
Pseudolonewolf Jan 15, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The tests give only a vague idea at best. Many other factors come into play that the tests just can't account for. They do seem to work for most people though.

You're supposed to get an evaluation from a professional, or self-evaluate by looking into the theory. Most online tests are going to be innacurate and just for fun. :p

I've had tests like this also done by professionals.They told me I was trying break the test :roll:
