    Question Enneagram test?

    I don't know my enneagram type, but I would like to find it out. Does anybody know a site in web where there would be a good enneagram test?

    How does enneagram and MBTI types relate to each other anyway?

    Thanks!

    Oh, good!
    I'm just the guy for this!

    To start, you can try this: Free Enneagram Test
    And this, which works a different way: Enneagram Personality Type Indicator

    But there are plenty of others.
    You might try similarminds.com. It's easy to find tests with a whole lot of googling.

    Remember that the tests give you full scores. The most accurate results come when you take the test multiple times over a period.
    Add up the scores to develop a pattern.

    As for that.
    There are nine Enneagram types, or eighteen if you factor in the wings.
    As you can see, that doesn't match with the MBTI's sixteen.
    So, the breakdown is uneven, and still largely debated.
    There are some very typical correlations, though.

    INTPs and Five are often the same.
    ENTJs and Eights.
    ENFJs and Twos.
    ESTPs and Sevens.

    Some are widely accepted, many of the others are disagreed upon.
    Try this place for different ideas about type relations:Type Correlations

    I generally like the bottom chart the most.

    I'm a type One with a Two wing, by the way.
    Everyone agrees that it's strange for an INTP to be that way.

    I found this test not so clear to me. Too many questions where I was not strongly either of the descriptions. The results were 7,3,4 or 9. Go figure that out. I'll do the second one and if it seems better, then I'll do it several times.

    Might be all the more reason to take the test again. It could help you develop a definitive score.
    On that note, the Enneagram institute says that a person who ties up a lot of the scores is more likely to be a Nine. Seeing as how you had Nine as one of the highest scores, that might be what you are.
    But yes, try the other test. You must do more before any conclusions can be drawn.

    In addition to the suggested ones, I know of this one.

    Thanks!
    Technically, they don't, but there are tendencies for certain types in one to test as certain types for another. For instance, I_T_'s are most likely to be 5 or 6, but they can be other types as well.

    I have done the test quite many times now and the result I get out of it the most is 7, so that might be my Ennegram type... :confused:

    What's the wing thing in the Enneagram by the way?

    Okay, I did all the tests provided by the links...

    The first one I got was type 2, closely followed by type 7 and 9 equally.
    The next test gave me type 2 and 9 equally, with type 3 and type 7 coming after that.
    And the third test gave me type 7, then type 9 and then type 2.

    So, where does that leave me? ^^

    Six lucky tests away from scoring for them all.

    Indeed, perhaps so. It helps to wait some time before taking tests again, just to see.
    I would not be surprised if you were a Seven, because that is a very common type for ENFPs.

    The wing is your highest scoring number next to your highest scoring number.
    So in otherwords, if you are a Seven, then the ones next to it would be Six or Eight. Which ever of those two that typically scores higher than the other is your wing.
    It has significant influence on your type. It's really more like there are eighteen types than nine. 1/2, 2/1, 2/3, 3/2, 3/4, etc...

    you're an ENFP, too. The damndest thing about that is that all three of those are common results for the ENFP.
    You may just have to keep testing and keep adding up the scores, I can only say that you are probably not the Seven, given the average break-down so far. If you just keep switching and tieing again and again, with the Nine always somewhere in the list, then you are probably a Nine.
    They are the type most likely to give indifferent scores.
    (where as the Six is the most likely to give random ones)
