I'm curious to know where you guys are placed amongst the Enneagram's Types.

Take this test, it takes about 3-10 mins to take probably more like 5: Enneagram Testing

I took the test once or twice...it was type 5...I think, with a winger-ma-jiggie 4.

I got 7 a couple of times....then I thought about being a 1.....and re-questioned my whole type.

Is anyone else getting results outside of the MBTI 'norm'?

Ohh...this test gives me

Type 5 - 11.3
Type 8 - 8
Type 3 - 7.7
Type 4 - 7
Type 9 - 6.3
Type 6 - 6

Wing 5w4 - 14.8
Wing 5w6 - 14.3
Wing 4w5 - 12.7
Wing 6w5 - 11.7
Wing 8w9 - 11.2
Wing 3w4 - 11.2
Wing 4w3 - 10.9
Wing 8w7 - 10.5
Wing 9w8 - 10.3
Wing 3w2 - 8.7
Wing 6w7 - 8.5
Wing 9w1 - 7.2

....which seems to make more sense than just '7' for an ISTP.

After a bit more research I'd probably put myself down as a 5w6 4w3 8w7.

Although I'd have to do more research to be really sure about that.

Type 5 - 10.7
Type 9 - 9.3
Type 7 - 6
Type 6 - 2.3
Type 4 - 1.7

Wing 5w6 - 11.9
Wing 5w4 - 11.6
Wing 9w8 - 10
Wing 9w1 - 9.8
Wing 6w5 - 7.7
Wing 7w6 - 7.2
Wing 4w5 - 7.1
Wing 7w8 - 6.7
Wing 6w7 - 5.3
Wing 4w3 - 1.7

Added: I took the instinctual variants test and it said I'm most likely a Type 5 with balanced wings, and a sexual variant.

Last time I took it (different site) I had a self preservation variant. Meh, whatever.

I don't know...reading those sub-types, I identify with things from 5w4 and 5w6.

Wing 8w7 - 13.1
Wing 8w9 - 12.6
Wing 7w8 - 10.1
Wing 5w4 - 9.4
Wing 9w8 - 9.1
Wing 5w6 - 9.1
Wing 7w6 - 5.1
Wing 9w1 - 4.7

That was a pretty good test. I usually mistype when a test places too much emphasis on the eight as an extrovert.

Type 8 - 10
Type 6 - 8.3
Type 5 - 7.3
Type 4 - 6.3
Type 9 - 4.3
Type 7 - 4.3

Wing 8w7 - 12.2
Wing 8w9 - 12.2
Wing 6w5 - 12
Wing 5w6 - 11.5
Wing 6w7 - 10.5
Wing 5w4 - 10.5

Wing 7w8 - 9.3
Wing 9w8 - 9.3
Wing 7w6 - 8.5
Wing 4w3 - 7.5
Wing 9w1 - 5.2

I always figured the 8w9 description fit me best, and according to this it does, though tied with 8w7.

On the second test, it said type 5w6 Sp/Sx.

And the first test,

Wing 5w6 - 13.9
Wing 5w4 - 13.4
Wing 9w8 - 11
Wing 9w1 - 10.4
Wing 6w5 - 10.2
Wing 4w5 - 9.2
Wing 6w7 - 5.7
Wing 4w3 - 3.5

That seems to fit.

Means you're just a five, not a 5w4 or 5w6.

Hmmm...I don't know. I don't understand this like I understand Myers Briggs. I'm going to read up on it later.

i guess this was a waste of time... **edit: i just saw that i could still read what a type 5 was. i thought basically it was saying nothing. didnt know the scores links were to the types. haha**

"You are most likely a type 5.

Taking wings into account, you seem to be a 8w7 or 8w9.

It is not clear from these test results which Enneagram type and wing you are."

**edit again: this is very true of me "They sometimes deal with this by developing a minimalistic lifestyle in which they make few demands on others in exchange for few demands being made on them." other than that i find that it doesn't really describe me. it's a little over the top. i do see some truth behind some of the findings, but i don't feel that it really fits besides what i just quoted here. **

**last fucking edit, i promise: type 8 was my second highest score. a lot of that fits me, but im not controlling and never angry or enraged. im like a mix between 5 and 8 with a side of apathy. i'm too laid back to be a full 8. but when im going for something, like a win, im very aggressive and competitive. i have no desire to control anyone at all. sink or swin, fuck 'em. **

I may be 5w6 but I couldn't be bothered taking the test again so I chose the last option on the poll:p

When 5s grow they start to look more like an 8 but I'm currently too introverted to consider myself an 8.
