    Ennanagram Questionaire

    1. What do you think your life is about? What drives you in life? This can be something like a goal or a purpose, or anything else that comes to mind.
    I think that my life is unimportant as long as I can't prolong it in some way. My goal is to explain the unexplained and discover the unknown, in other words, to fully understand how the universe works. Learning and gaining more knowledge about the world drives me in life.

    2. What were you like as a kid?
    As a kid I was very quiet, you could say I was shy, but I generally didn't like to talk to other children simply because I thought they where inferior and immature.

    3. Describe your relationship with your parents. Does anything stand out about the way you interacted?
    My mother is very annoying to me, I do not like her at all except that she supports me as her child. I have no comment on my father, he did not interact with my life in any impactful ways. I like my privacy and to live in piece, my mother ruins this with her paranoia that I'm doing something potentially bad.

    4. What values are important to you? What do you hope to avoid doing or being?
    I only value my existence and people who are very important to me. I hope to avoid hurting those who are very important to me and to avoid causing myself to go into a dead end.

    5. Aside from phobias, are there any fears that characterized your childhood? Have they continued into the present day, or not, and if not, how have you dealt with them?
    I fear things that are unknown and that I cannot understand.

    6. a.) How do you see yourself?
    I see myself as distant, generally cold-hearted, and different from what is considered normal. I try to differentiate myself to give me a sense of special existence and to not be common.

    b.) How do you want others to see you?
    I want others to see me as a capable person who shouldn't be questioned on topics I am well knowledgeable on. I want other people to see me as smarter and better than them when it comes to knowledge and wisdom. I want close friends or people who I love to see me as a loving and caring person who constantly looks out for their future.

    c.) What do you dislike the most in other people?
    I dislike how people who are important to me forget important things such as promises, ideas and me. I dislike regular people how they are lazy, incapable and helpless on their own.

    7. Which habit do you most automatically act on? Rank the following habits from most to least automatic, on a scale of 1 (most) to 3 (least).
    a.) Work for personal gain with more concern for self than for others.
    1

    b.) Strive for a sense of tranquility in yourself and the world around you
    2

    c.) Decide what is right for the betterment of something or someone else.
    3

    8. Where does the wandering mind take you? What provokes you?
    The wandering mind takes me into the vast world of possibilities where the walls and ceiling of reality do not exist. I am provoked by ignorance, wastefulness, inefficiency and those who deliberately provoke me physically.

    9.What makes you feel your best? What makes you feel your worst?
    I feel best when I know everything about the current situation and am in control. I feel worst when I have no information, plans or when there is no consistency.

    10.
    Let's talk about emotions. Explain what might make you feel the following, how they feel to you or how you react to the emotion:
    a.) anger
    People who I do not like and cannot avoid or ignore. I do not like people when they are useless and cannot change.

    b.) shame
    Failure. When I fail because of myself I feel ashamed.

    c.) anxiety
    Not having all of the information that I need makes me anxious.

    11.
    Describe how you respond to the following:
    a.) stress
    I generally don't notice it, although when it is fast paced, I tend to freeze up or feel nervous.

    b.) negative unexpected change
    Saw it coming, I generally expect them.

    c.) conflict
    If it doesn't involve me, I'll just watch. If it does, I'll play along for laughs and giggles.

    12.
    a.) What kind of role are you naturally inclined to take in a group? Why?
    I can take a leader position best, since I'd prefer not to work under an incompetent leader. If they are better then me, then I am okay with following.

    b.) If put in power, how do you behave? Why?
    I behave the same way I do with myself. I try to make everything efficient and sacrifice unnecessary things. Everyone needs to follow orders exactly as they are given, and if anyone has any questions and advice, it better be good questions and advice and not a waste of my time.

    c.) Do you tend to struggle with others who have authority over you? Why?
    Yes, if the authority is incompetent and cannot complete their duty then they are not fit to lead or have authority. If they are capable and know what they are doing, then I am fine with authority.

    13.
    What do you see or notice in others that most people don't?
    I notice weakness, inability to think properly, and laziness.

    14.
    Comment on your relationship with trust.
    Trust has to be achieved at 100%. 99% is not good enough and I must be thinking on the same lines as the other person, as they should in return. If trust is broken, it may never be repaired, although it will be forgiven.

    15. Briefly: What religious and/or political beliefs do you have? Do you think they influenced your responses in this questionnaire?
    I do not have any religious beliefs, I cannot believe in something that does not have undeniable proof that can be studied. I am not a very political person since politics is generally a game where nothing gets done and goes through a long process of opinion, arguments and bribery. So no, no religious beliefs influenced me, although my way of thinking about politics may have.

    Alright, no prerequisite it is...

    That is very 5-like. First off, 5s tend to describe what it means to be a 5 is an undying thirst for knowledge. Secondly, they are often said to be looking for some greater knowledge which answers great questions, hard to explain :P



    2. What were you like as a kid?
    As a kid I was very quiet, you could say I was shy, but I generally didn't like to talk to other children simply because I thought they where inferior and immature.
    This is in line with Riso-Hudson's (RH) 5 understanding of their childhood pattern. They keep to themselves, retreating into a solitary environment, and view issues about the world that are more objective than their feelings, not playing with other kids, occupying their own thoughts in and looking for resources to do so. For their differences you looked down on other kids.



    3. Describe your relationship with your parents. Does anything stand out about the way you interacted?
    My mother is very annoying to me, I do not like her at all except that she supports me as her child. I have no comment on my father, he did not interact with my life in any impactful ways. I like my privacy and to live in piece, my mother ruins this with her paranoia that I'm doing something potentially bad.
    5s are known to fear people intruding on them and their thoughts. I think 5s are said to fear "mind control" which is misleading, but to be comfortable in their own head and independent.




    4. What values are important to you? What do you hope to avoid doing or being?
    I only value my existence and people who are very important to me. I hope to avoid hurting those who are very important to me and to avoid causing myself to go into a dead end.
    You're very selective in those you care about, most 6s do not have such a perspective towards caring about people, 5-like.




    5. Aside from phobias, are there any fears that characterized your childhood? Have they continued into the present day, or not, and if not, how have you dealt with them?
    I fear things that are unknown and that I cannot understand.
    5s basic desire is to be capable and competent, so this seems to align with that.




    6. a.) How do you see yourself?
    I see myself as distant, generally cold-hearted, and different from what is considered normal. I try to differentiate myself to give me a sense of special existence and to not be common.
    I think this is what people consider a clear sign of being an iconoclast 5w4, but I don't know 5s that well for certainty.



    b.) How do you want others to see you?
    I want others to see me as a capable person who shouldn't be questioned on topics I am well knowledgeable on. I want other people to see me as smarter and better than them when it comes to knowledge and wisdom. I want close friends or people who I love to see me as a loving and caring person who constantly looks out for their future.
    5s are known for a dash of ego for their pride in their own intelligence, considering they view themselves as so different from others.



    c.) What do you dislike the most in other people?
    I dislike how people who are important to me forget important things such as promises, ideas and me. I dislike regular people how they are lazy, incapable and helpless on their own.
    Not indicative of any type.




    7. Which habit do you most automatically act on? Rank the following habits from most to least automatic, on a scale of 1 (most) to 3 (least).
    a.) Work for personal gain with more concern for self than for others.
    1

    b.) Strive for a sense of tranquility in yourself and the world around you
    2

    c.) Decide what is right for the betterment of something or someone else.

    5s in the past ordered these exactly the same, and it matches the description.




    8. Where does the wandering mind take you? What provokes you?
    The wandering mind takes me into the vast world of possibilities where the walls and ceiling of reality do not exist.
    God, what a 5 thing to say. 5s are the observers, and not known for an emphasis on practicality, considering your issue with reality...




    9.What makes you feel your best? What makes you feel your worst?
    I feel best when I know everything about the current situation and am in control. I feel worst when I have no information, plans or when there is no consistency.

    Mastery is something 5s are well-known for. They are said by RH to use their complete understanding as a way to interact with the outside world, otherwise they're anxious, and I think anxious is what you described.

    Well, you are strongly influenced by the type 3.



    c.) anxiety
    Not having all of the information that I need makes me anxious.
    What did I say about mastery?



    11.
    Describe how you respond to the following:
    a.) stress
    I generally don't notice it, although when it is fast paced, I tend to freeze up or feel nervous.

    3s are known to kill such emotions to succeed.



    b.) negative unexpected change
    Saw it coming, I generally expect them.
    You do pride yourself on knowing what you're doing.



    c.) conflict
    If it doesn't involve me, I'll just watch. If it does, I'll play along for laughs and giggles.
    5s don't indulge in conflict, normally.



    12.

    Yes, if the authority is incompetent and cannot complete their duty then they are not fit to lead or have authority. If they are capable and know what they are doing, then I am fine with authority.[/QUOTE]
    This sounds like a 3-ish 5.




    13.
    What do you see or notice in others that most people don't?
    I notice weakness, inability to think properly, and laziness.

    14.
    Comment on your relationship with trust.
    Trust has to be achieved at 100%. 99% is not good enough and I must be thinking on the same lines as the other person, as they should in return. If trust is broken, it may never be repaired, although it will be forgiven.

    15. Briefly: What religious and/or political beliefs do you have? Do you think they influenced your responses in this questionnaire?
    I do not have any religious beliefs, I cannot believe in something that does not have undeniable proof that can be studied. I am not a very political person since politics is generally a game where nothing gets done and goes through a long process of opinion, arguments and bribery. So no, no religious beliefs influenced me, although my way of thinking about politics may have.


    Conclusion: 5, probably wing 4 (5w4).

    This free chart is a great place to start in understanding the Enneagram types.
    TypeWatch and Timeless are my most trusted sources.
    This site is pretty reliable as well theenneagram...info from the underground

    This is probably my favorite site to learn about the instinctual variants.

    If you take issue with differences in the Enneagram types then you're welcomed to look into the misidentification page or the other misidentification page written by Riso-Hudson (found under the PerC subforum articles also) to help you make sense of differences.
