    Default Accuracy of Online Enneagram Tests

    What's the Best Enneagram Test?

    RHETI - 27% accurate. (Since this is the upgraded version, I wonder how inaccurate was the RETI that I took? That one scored me as a type 3. I LOL'd at the inaccuracy of the result when I read up on the type 3 to see if it fit me.)

    WEPSS - 33% accurate. (From the website: "The WEPSS is a standardized, reliable, and valid Enneagram inventory, the only one published by a major psychological test company and reviewed in Buros's Mental Measurements Yearbook, a respected authority in the testing field." No wonder they charge you to take it!

    SEDIG - 58% accurate. This is a one-question-per-type inventory, but the "questions" are basically one paragraph essays. I found a copy of it here:

    Probability that true type is among top 3 scores for the three tests listed above:
    RHETI - 63%
    WEPSS - 93%
    SEDIG - 83%

    I have taken both the RHETI (Basic Enneagram + Tritype) and WEPSS.

    Both test gave me a very similar result; they were for example in agreement over my primary Enneatype and wing.

    A minor difference was that the RHETI test identified my gut fix as 8, whereas I inferred it to be 1 from the WEPSS results. My order is heart-head-gut though, so my gut fix isn't very important.

    They measure accuracy by how well the tests' results line up with their own analysis?

    On one hand, it sort of makes sense to determine which (quick) online tests give results that are most in line with (in-depth) interviews. On the other.. ... "accurate"? "Best"?

    First one gave me 5, second one gave me 9...I'm pretty sure I am a 7w6 or 7w8. I look forward to taking this one.
