Why is there no room for balanced wings in the poll?
Because wing-theory is not about the strength of the types on either side of your core type, whether or not they test equally. In fact, your wing can be relatively weak.
"But you forget that there is one value that is greater than all others: human freedom. Because no matter how perfectly you set the world up for humanity, they will always rebel simply to exert their own selves. You cannot win."
No personality test is completely accurate. Although several measures were taken to make this test as accurate as possible, there's always a chance that you are not typed correctly by it. Therefore, when deciding which Enneagram type and wing you are, you might also want to consider the types with the highest test scores on the lists below.
(Note that your lowest scores may be omitted.)
Type 1 - 11.3
Type 6 - 8.7
Type 4 - 8.7
Type 5 - 8.3
Type 3 - 8
Type 2 - 6
Type 9 - 5.7
Type 7 - 5.7
My type was after having done 3 type me threads and lots of comparison and analysis of the helen palmer tapes of 8 and 3.
At class I exhibit 3-ish behavior (which got me confused as to which one my dominant type is) but my main emotion that came out from this was rage. It was the resentment and frustration not to end up like failures of a parent both of them are -- it was a way to assert dominance or power when it comes to the "brains" department.

Maybe we could actually expand this question a bit (since it's in a more serious category) rather than just having everyone volunteer their enneagram type.
Like, "...and what does it mean for you?" or "Do you think the test was right or wrong, and why?"
Or some other question that actually provides some decent exploration (?).
On these tests I typically score 8,3,5 very highly then followed by 2 or 9. When it comes to personality typing, tests are scheisse in general. No description of ourselves can ever be complete.
Edit: I think enneagram is more useful than MBTI/JCF because the latter just states how are you different and attaching different stereotypes or listed behavior (MBTI) or just your thought preference and how you do things (JCF). Enneagram is more useful (to me) in a sense that it tells you to look back at your past and find out what really cause you to be this way, feel this way, etc.
