    the enneagram is good for explaining behavior and motivations.

    thats a very quick and dirty way to look at them.
    And you are convinced, it is right ?

    nah its just a general way of looking at it, right or wrong. i personally believe that bio-temperament has more relevance then the enneagram.

    just didn't feel like typing out a big long explanation sorry.

    yes its much more specific then the enneagram. to me the enneagram is a step above astrology. read The Edge Effect by Dr. Eric Braverman...it's excellent. if you look at my signature you'll see my bio-temperament is acetylcholine. i dont know you well enough but in general NT's are dopamine dominant. SJ -> GABA dominant and SP -> seritonine (pardon the spelling). of course you can have a SJ who is dominant in dopamine or an NF that is dominant in seritonine.

    i have just taken the enneagram test, and have found it far too complicated, when compared with the Jung personality type test.

    i have found that the enneagram is far too vague to understand, and very basic, with little actual information provided.

    i am always looking for new ideas, however, and so will definitely be looking into bio-temperament, that is for sure

    OMG it's another ENFP 8w9! *seizures, mouth starts foaming*

    It is more likely that your test results were wrong than that you actually changed.
    I took four tests in one day and got four different results.
    The tests online don't seem to be very well written.

    As I suggested in post number 5, if you really want to know, you'll have to do the assessment yourself.
    I found the results quite helpful.

    i thought about that, and to be quite honest, i think both types could apply to me...then again, at the same time, one can justify belonging to any personality.

    *le sigh* i hold little faith in Enneagrams compared to Jung anyway, so it doesn't matter that much. was just interested is all

    I felt the same way about a year ago.
    I'm glad I gave it another try though.
    The Enneagram explains the motivations of the heart, sort of.
