IMPORTANT! Chrome users need to middle- or control-click (CMD on macs) the button at the end to get their results.

Therein lies a test. Briefly, there should be a correlation with above-average (>20~24) schizotypy and being part of the Withdrawn triad, or being a Six, if you have additional "compulsive non-conformity" factors that are without the scope of the test. Why this is is an ongoing curiosity for me about the underlying structure of naive typologies.

So I scored relatively high. I'd say this has something to do with being a double-withdrawn type and being rather detached from reality in general.

If you must apply causal reasoning or logical consequence at all (which I don't think is really correct), then you're putting the cart before the horse.

To the extent that people can be typed, they're sets of traits that can be quantified by psychological instruments, and qualities that are defined within a given system. Each of these quantities and qualities gives you a "belonging" quantity to each set defined within that system. The set of enneagram types has some overlap with schizotypy in the form of withdrawn types, and considering you're a schizotype, it logically follows that you're Withdrawn. The most correct way of considering it is without any form of logical derivation at all: you are concurrently schizotypal and Withdrawn, as they both encompass similar things.

Using Google Chrome it flashed some sort of result page at me then changed to the original questionnaire.

I'll take away from the testing that I am not comfortable with sitting down for a conversation with new people, but I'm not delusional as was being tested for in the results. I tried using the back button, and it didn't work for redisplaying results.

I agree that it seems likely that withdrawn types will score high on a test like this, but I'm not surprised I didn't, especially at this point in my life.

Low, not surprising given that autism is in many ways the opposite of psychotic tendencies.

I have no beliefs about superstition so those questions were easy to answer.
But yes, 10 out of 10 for paranoid and suspicious thoughts.:rolleyes:

I'd never taken that kind of test before. I scored 36 out of 74. I could see, with a more in-depth test, my score being higher in some areas and lower in others. Anyway, since my teens, I've believed I am higher on the spectrum than most people.
