    The Enneagram

    Someone asked me about the Enneagram, so I thought I'd post something here, and let everyone benefit from the knowledge...

    Test: (Third group down on the left)

    Find out what your type means: (Google also works, just type in "enneagram type x" where x is your type)

    There are other sites out there too, these can get you started.
    I've found this has much more depth and detail than MBTI. It attempts to explain things that MBTI does not.

    I enjoy discussing this, so feel free to hit me up privately or here if you have questions.
    LadyJava thanked this post.

    I found this link about enneagrams relevant to what I was going through (being an enneagram 7)

    I had posted it before at https://personalitycafe.com/enfp-foru...used-enfp.html

    Here's my complete Enneagram:

    so/sx 8w9(sw9w1)-6w7(sw5w6)-2w1(sw3w2)

    What's yours?
    Also 8w9 but sp/so

    Try the SLOAN also.
    The details are in the original thread.

    I took the long test and tested as a Two, which is what I tested as years ago. Recently I tested as a Four, but it didn't seem "right." Four came in a close second, and that's probably why it was easy to test differently.

    The Enneagram is a personality system which divides the entire human personality into nine behavioral tendencies, this is your score on each...

    Type 1 Perfectionism |||||||||||||| 51%
    Type 2 Helpfulness |||||||||||||||| 65%
    Type 3 Image Focus |||||||||||| 50%
    Type 4 Hypersensitivity |||||||||||||||| 62%
    Type 5 Detachment |||||||||||||| 54%
    Type 6 Anxiety |||||||||||| 47%
    Type 7 Adventurousness |||||||||| 38%
    Type 8 Aggressiveness |||||||||| 32%
    Type 9 Calmness |||||||||||||| 51%

    My instinctual variants were a bit suprising.

    Sexual |||||||||||||||||||||||| 74%
    Social ||||||||||||||||||||| 66%
    Self Preservation ||||||||||||||||||||| 66%

    Instinctual variant theory holds that your instinctual drives can be divided into three forces. The Sexual force drives you to seek closeness, like you would experience in a strong romantic relationship or a close friendship. The Social force drives you to consider the wider community, where you and others stand, what everyone thinks/feels/needs of you and what you think/feel/need of them. The Self Preservation force drives you to maintain individual concerns - security, health, comfort, etc..

    Interesting. I look forward to see what other types are represented. Thank you for those links, Bear.

    Mine is odd because I got even on two numbers, my two are 8 & 7. Thus I'm either 7w8 or 8w7.

    Also I'm Sx/Sp/So (So = 70% Sp = 71%)

    No sir, you're not. 7w8 and 8w7 are totally different gestalts.

    Those tests show me as being more 9 than 8, but I am 8w9.

    7w8 is more aggressive less "alpha"
    8w7 is more "alpha" less aggressive

    Do you relate to Spawn, Batman, or Wolverine?

    Do you have an inner war going on? Like some serious internal conflict?

    The last part is important too. Do you have an inner war?
