Alright, let see if you guys can take a stab at my enneagram. I'm pretty sure I've taken three tests. On the first two I got a two followed by one. The third one gave me a six tied with a few other types that I can't remember at the moment. The thing is I can see myself as a 1, 2, 6, or maybe even a 7.

I don't know as much about the enneagram as I do MBTI, but I'm pretty sure that the ennegram seems to focus more on a person's issues. So here are a few threads detailing them.

But in reality, I'm doing the same thing I've always had-I'm seeking opinions from others. It seems I can't realize the truth about myself...because I fear that everything that comprises my entire self-image could be a lie. I have to wonder...is what I've always thought about myself the real me? Or is it just a facade created to meet my own expectations, which in turn, are drawn from people's opinions of me?
When it comes to brewing theories of my own, I'm not sure whether I'm as capable as I think I am. Sometimes I feel as if I'm simply copying ideas. Sometimes I wonder if I'm truly capable of coming up with ideas. Is this a lack of confidence or a lack of aptitude? In addition, I do take detailed notes in class...but I don't particularly like doing so. I do it for fear of missing something that may be on the test. I dislike memorizing facts. I also dislike more abstract questions that have no right or wrong answer...because I'm afraid that whatever I put would be wrong. And I hate tricky multiple choice questions where two choices sound right and I don't which one.
I would look into 6.

I think 6w7 is more likely. However, I'll wait for more responses.

Also...does anyone think I could be a 9? I don't like conflict. Then again, I don't think my life centers around avoiding conflict so...:unsure:

First of all let me say that I don't know much about the Enneagram. I actually just started getting into this system, but one thing I noticed is that your issues seem to have to do with the 3-6-9 triangle. You've expressed worries about the image you present, about getting all your opinions from others (authority figures of some kind) and about self-forgetting.

You're very hard on yourself and seem to have a lot of "I should be able to" and "I must" ideas. This makes me think of type 1 or type 6. Both types have overactive superegos, but a big part of the 6's superego also involves the (percieved) opinions of other people; something that seems to be the case.

Based on that I'd say type 6.

*thread necromancer casts spell*
Me: Thanks.
TN: No prob. :wink:

Hmm...maybe I am a 7. I decided to look at integration/disintegration points. 7 disintegrates at 1. I'm critical when stressed. 7 integrates at 5. When I'm not stressed, I like to explore things and satiate my curiosity.

I could also be a 9. 9 disintegrates at 6. I get paranoid when I'm stressed. 9 integrates at 3. When I'm not stressed, I do feel more like doing stuff.

I could also be a 1. 1 disintegrates at 4. I'm moody and irrational when stressed. (But who isn't?) 1 integrates at 7. I tend to find joy in things when I'm not stressed.

I could also be a 6, but it's looking less likely. 6 disintegrates at 3. Perhaps I could have a competitive streak, but I don't think I'm that arrogant or vain. In fact, I'm most likely to be self-critical when stressed. 6 integrates at 9. I feel more peaceful when I'm not stressed.

Now here's the biggest question: WHICH ONE IS THE MOST LIKE ME?!?!?!?!?!?! :crying:
