Enneagram


#1

The Enneagram types are not supposed to represent how you act, but what motivates your actions. Therefore, you may have to do some analysis on your test results and take them with a grain of salt, because they mostly try to deduce your motives through your actions. Here are some tests for it:

Test by choosing how well each statement describes you:
(Short) similarminds.com/test.html
(Long) similarminds.com/cgi-bin/sminds2 ... rminds2.pl

Test by rating how well each word describes you:
similarminds.com/cgi-bin/word.pl

Here are my results and what I made of them:

Type 1 Perfectionism |||||||||||||||||| 74%
Type 2 Helpfulness |||||| 22%
Type 3 Image Focus |||||||||||||||||| 78%
Type 4 Hypersensitivity |||||| 26%
Type 5 Detachment |||||||||||||||||| 74%
Type 6 Anxiety |||||||||||| 42%
Type 7 Adventurousness |||||||||||||| 54%
Type 8 Aggressiveness |||||||||||||||||| 78%
Type 9 Calmness |||||||||||||||| 66%

I think I can assume the 8 is a result of being an ENTJ, but 1 - 3 - 5 is the competency group, so I'm probably one of those. I do appreciate an image and value independence and knowledge, but simply because those are part of the ideal that I strive for as a number 1. My wing is 9, because it was the highest (outside of the four mentioned) and because 2 is definitely not me.

In the end, you should have one type and one wing that is one of the two types next to it. For example, I am a type 1 wing 9 (1w9).

Here is some more info on the types:

And here are some type groupings if you could find it useful like I did:
(General) 3dpersonality.com/personalit ... agram.html
(Harmonic) 3dpersonality.com/personalit ... rmonic.htm
(Hornevian) 3dpersonality.com/personalit ... nevian.htm

Remember that you're trying to determine the underlying motive to your actions and the profiles for each type are largely based off of what is stereotypically seen by people with that motive. Here is a list I made to help break it down:

Type 1
Underlying motive: Justice, Correctness
Strives for: Fairness, Improvement
When relaxed: Spontaneous, Joyful
When stressed: Moody, Impatient

Type 2
Underlying motive: Sincerity, Helpfulness
Strives for: Friendliness, Generosity
When relaxed: Self-Nurturing, Emotionally-Aware
When stressed: Aggressive, Dominating

Type 3
Underlying motive: Advancement, Ambition
Strives for: High Status, Good Image
When relaxed: Cooperative, Caring
When stressed: Disengaged, Apathetic

Type 4
Underlying motive: Expression, Individuality
Strives for: Creativity, Uniqueness
When relaxed: Objective, Principled
When stressed: Clingy, Envious

Type 5
Underlying motive: Curiosity, Development
Strives for: Knowledge, Innovation
When relaxed: Confident, Decisive
When stressed: Hyperactive, Scattered

Type 6
Underlying motive: Security, Trust
Strives for: Reliability, Commitment
When relaxed: Relaxed, Optimistic
When stressed: Arrogant, Pessimistic

Type 7
Underlying motive: Freedom, Happiness
Strives for: Versatility, Satisfaction
When relaxed: Focused, Fascinated
When stressed: Perfectionist, Critical

Type 8
Underlying motive: Control, Strength
Strives for: Decisiveness, Resourcefulness
When relaxed: Warm, Caring
When stressed: Secretive, Fearful

Type 9
Underlying motive: Peace, Stability
Strives for: Acceptance, Harmony
When relaxed: Productive, Energetic
When stressed: Anxious, Worried

The "When" behaviors are supposed to be the "growth" and "stress" points for each of them, so they would not be what you express most of the time, only at times when you are extremely at-ease or under extreme pressure. I know it's a bit hypocritical to put the underlying motives next to more behavior, but it helped me identify my type to consider these, and if it confuses you more, you should just ignore it.

#4

I'm a 3w2 :mrgreen:


#5

...


#6

I'm a 3w4 so/sx. I also score highly in Type 7, and bit above average in Types 6 and 8. I think that's the general trend for ENTJs.


#7

I got my usual result. Highest by some margin is 3. Wing is up in the air, as I tend to score pretty low on both types 2 and 4. Going by the general enneagram meanings, I'd certainly lean toward 3w4 before 3w2.

Tied for second place, type 8 and type 9.

Wonder which way is the "actual" type? 3 was 86%, but both 2 and 3 were under 40%. Meanwhile, both 8 and 9 were 70%. Type four probably can manifest a bit differently than any quick 'n dirty test can determine, considering they're generally about 'individuality'.


#8

type score type behavior motivation
3 57 I must be impressive and attractive to be happy.
9 53 I must be peaceful and easy to get along with to be happy.
7 52 I must be high and entertained to be happy.
2 51 I must be helpful and caring to be happy.
1 46 I must be perfect and good to be happy.
8 44 I must be strong and in control to be happy.
6 35 I must be secure and safe to be happy.
5 22 I must be knowledgable and independent to be happy.
4 15 I must avoid painful feelings to be happy.

I am type 3


#9

I’m a 1 or a 3 depending on which one I take. I think I’m more of a 1 though.


#10

I am a 6. http://www.enneagraminstitute.com/typesix.asp

#12

Enneagram Six with a Five-Wing: “The Defender”

Edit: it changed again!


#13

Don’t remember first number, but second was 8.


#14

I am an 8 with no wings but the 5 style definitely fits

I think the Enneagram test is a really hard one to know for sure. There’s so many traits that are really at the core of us and picking our top ones almost seems like choosing whether we need to eat food or breathe more.

I got a 3 way tie between 1, 3, and 6. That being said, 5, 8, and 9 are up there for me as well.

If I had to choose though, I’d peg myself 1.


#16

im 8w7, close to 7w8.
7w8 describes the outside of me, while 8w7 is for the hidden one.


#17

Control freak inside. I knew that!


#18

you knew that??? lol. lie!!!
i even didnt know that…


#19

I have 8w7 as well. I know who I am. I know who you are. You can fool others. But you cannot fool me.


#20

no wonder, you have all the bad traits that i always want to bury down. :laughing:
