The SLOAN (also known as Big 5) personality descriptors are an innovative personality index which allow for variance within the traditional MBTI types, but do not make assumptions regarding the intents/motivations/mentality of the participant like the Enneagram.

SLOAN types can map onto any of the MBTI types, and indicate the more individual differences between types and individuals (which MBTI itself does not do).

Even though SLOAN types can map onto any MBTI type, there are a few common type matches that show a connection between SLOAN results and MBTI types. See here for a comprehensive listing of SLOAN types/descriptions.

Although you may feel/think it better to make assumptions based on the descriptions, I recommend you take the test first before decide to validate your results subjectively. Even better still, get someone else to rate you (if you can) as well. Here is a link to the SLOAN test available on similarminds.org (this is the word test, there is also a questions test also)..

Enjoy,

Fairly accurate. Think they said underachiever one too many times for my liking. I should kick the sh*t out of the person that typed it..but since I don't apparently "stand up for self," I suppose I shouldn't. LoL, other than that, its kind of right in a ho-hum sort of way.

I don't think any of these apply to me >.<

There are 2 or 3 that are damn close, but they all have important traits that for sure contradict how I do.

So. *Shrugs*

MBTI and Enneagram for me I guess.
Hence why I said this in the Opening Post.

Although you may feel/think it better to make assumptions based on the descriptions, I recommend you take the test first before decide to validate your results subjectively. Even better still, get someone else to rate you (if you can) as well.
Did you take the test, or just read the descriptions for MBTI and Enneagram?

It can to about 75-80% fit my description, which I think is high.

Yes I took the test, Mr. Iassumenoonereadsanything.

And the result it gave me was inaccurate a lot.

And then upon further reading, the alternatives didn't sound all too much better.
Frankly lad, I don't assume that people do not read anything.. Bad trolling by you sir.
The odd thing is that you don't present any claims of what you assume to be accurate or inaccurate. I guess, that subjective validation is your only way of explaining the inaccuracy of this test.

Fair enough.. To each their own.

(3.8% of women; 3.5% of men)prone to addiction, often late, does not think things work out for the best, impatient, discontent, negative, opinionated, acts without thinking, preoccupied with self, easily frustrated, not that interested in others, act at the expense of others, becomes aggressive when they feel hurt, acts wild and crazy, frustrated and angry when people don't live up to expectations, slow to forgive, takes charge, does not behave in way that is acceptable to society, pessimistic, agnostic/atheistic tendencies, not usually happy, not calm in crisis, does not accomplish work on time, spontaneous, not on good terms with everyone, demanding, misbehaved, improper, avoids responsibilities, not willing to let things rest, acts out frustrations on others, has a need to maintain high levels of excitement, rarely prepared, often bored while working, aggressive, asks questions nobody else does, hard to reason with, likes to be the center of attention, acts without planning, retaliatory, asks many questions, quick to correct others, more pleasure seeking than responsible, not hard working, disorganized, loses things, unable to control cravings

Social
more verbal than non verbal, spends more time in group activities than solitary activities, does not like to go long without speaking to anyone, loves night life activities and crowds, competes for the spotlight, fits in most places, trusting, self expressive, not the best listener, action oriented, if they had to live their life over again they would not change much, dresses to stand out, seductive, very sexual, does not fear getting involved with others, female extroverts like tight fitting clothing, have more desire than fear, enjoys leadership, brutally honest, more random than controlled, impulsive, optimistic, motivated, wants to be famous, exhibitionist tendencies

As I had said in the OP, the types do not always align to MBTI.. But here is a list of the one's that do.

INFP: RCUAI, RLUAI
INTP: RCUEI, RLUEI
INFJ: RCOAI, RLOAI
INTJ: RCOEI, RLOEI
ISTJ: RCOEN, RLOEN
ISFJ: RCOAN, RLOAN
ISTP: RCUEN, RLUEN
ISFP: RCUAN, RLUAN
ENFP: SCUAI, SLUAI
ENTP: SCUEI, SLUEI
ENFJ: SCOAI, SLOAI
ENTJ: SCOEI, SLOEI
ESTJ: SCOEN, SLOEN
ESFJ: SCOAN, SLOAN
ESTP: SCUEN, SLUEN
ESFP: SCUAN, SLUAN

If anyone happens to disagree with the SLOAN type, by all means, cross analyse them with your MBTI and Enneagram results. Just remember, the MBTI and Enneagram are somewhat more reliant on the subjective validation principle and the barnum effect. Remember to check biases before considering accuracy or inaccuracy. (bias list here)

This is one of the reasons why I chose to place the word test in first.. But for ease, I now also post the questions version. This one should seem more like an MBTI questionnaire, although it will give the same descriptions.

The aims of this test (as stated in the OP) is to support individual differences. The other tests can be considered in light of these test results. And likewise, the SLOAN can be considered in light of MBTI and Enneagram tests/descriptions. The aim is to give a little more insight into standardised personality traits, without assuming too much.

You Sir, are awesome! The relationship is indeed more complex, but such a correlation indicates that the SLOAN is filing in gaps that the enneagram itself has a tendency to omit (being that it bases itself on a greater amount of self-evaluation and quantitative measures).
