    I don't get the Ennegram. I like it because I think it's about a STATE of being and your path, rather than 'who you are' in a static sense. When I was in college, I tested regularly as either a 7 or a 3 (yes, not all ENFPs are slackers, we can actually accomplish things, and not just a keg run, thank you). Now I test either as a 4 (hate this)/ 4w3 (makes it bearable) or a 2 (arrrrgh, burn my eyes out NO!!!!) or 2w3 (slightly better) and depending on the test again as a 7 or even an 8 (i am NOT an 8, I'm not driven by aggro or hostile energy) I go back and forth between social and sexual variant.

    My 1/9 scores are usually VERY VERY low, as in mucho negative. Same with 5and 6.

    I don't think I can rely on internet tests to figure out my ennegram type...

    I can't even spell it right.

    I think I finally am ok with my Enneagram type which is most probably 9W8.

    Where could I find more reading about 9W8's?

    Interestingly, I read something written by a person who was trying to debate that Albert Einstein was actually a 9w8, rather than 5w4 (the type commonly assigned to him).

    It's very difficult for me to imagine I would have anything in common with Albert Einstein. My thinking capabilities are about half of what he had. (But this has nothing to do with enneagram I think )

    I found this text about the difference between MBTI and Enneagram:

    The Enneagram is about motivation, and the MB is about how we function in the world.

    Allegedly Einstein wouldn't debate/defend his positions. He would simply present them and quietly ignore any rebuttals. In doing so he essentially preserved the peace. I suppose it is for that reason that some people believe he was a 9.

    BTW, I also have no idea where I read this and consequently cannot provide a link to my source.

    Here is the link:

    controversial figures.

    I do not agree with all of it, though. Generally speaking, for example, 5s tend to be far more absent-minded than 9s on average.

    I agree, from what I have read I think a typical 9 would be fairly "sharp" as much of that type's essence seems to be founded on interpersonal relationships and good situational awareness.

    People have pretty much posted all the good Enneagram tests that are free.

    I don't need another test, I would just like to know where I could read more about 9W8's.
