So, my older sister has been interested in the Enneagram recently, so I’ve decided to try taking some tests to see what my Enneagram type is at the present.
I have taken personality typing tests before – but the only up-to-date result I have is that I am an INFP from the MBTI personality testing system.
So, here it goes!
I begin by searching “Enneagram test” into google.co.uk…
I click on the first result to take my first Enneagram test! I answer any and all questions as honestly and PRESENTLY as I possibly can. What I mean by this is that I answer the questions as though the scenario in question was just about to occur in a moment, rather than depending on memories of experiences to answer the questions. This gives a result that is accurate and applicable to who I am today, versus a result based on either my image of who I am or on who I have been in the past 🙂
The first google result is eclecticenergies.com/enneagram/test.
It contains two online Enneagram tests, so I will take both 🙂
Okay, so after taking the first test, the results believe me to be a type 4 – more specifically a 4w5.
The second test believes me to be a type 4 too, also with a 4w5 wing, of the self-preservation variant.
Considering that both tests use completely different methods (the first had a page of 9 questions, each representing an Enneagram type, with 3 possible answers (yes, no or partly) for each – there were 14 pages altogether and after a while the questions would lessen as some types would be eliminated (by the 14th page I had only 5 questions per page left) and the second had 50-something pairs of statements, which a scale of 7 options to which you rate the pair of statements), I think it is safe to say that my result for the Enneagram is fairly conclusively a 4w5. I think it would be very unlikely for anything but this result to be true given the amount of possibilities that were available to me for both tests, and getting the exact same result using two different systems.
So, that’s it! I’m a 4w5. An INFP 4w5. Awesome.
It’s always fun to gather more information about yourself 🙂
I will do more personality typing tests so that I have more results besides simply the INFP result and the 4w5 result. I’ll also get my partner to do the second test to see how similar a result he gets to me (we both got INFP-T on the MBTI test, so I’m very curious to see what he gets for this test!) I honestly don’t do tests like these often though because they take me a very long time to do and take a lot of energy and concentration out of me, so it isn’t likely that I’ll do any more tests very very soon. For now I’m pretty content with the personality typing results that I do have.
Below is a mosaic of images from my test taking, followed by the two images of my results 🙂
