    8 - the Asserter
    Thanks for taking the test !
    you chose AY - your Enneagram type is EIGHT (aka "The Challenger").

    "I must be strong"
    Asserters are direct, self-reliant, self-confident, and protective.

    How to Get Along with Me
    • Stand up for yourself... and me.
    • Be confident, strong, and direct.
    • Don't gossip about me or betray my trust.
    • Be vulnerable and share your feelings. See and acknowledge my tender, vulnerable side.
    • Give me space to be alone.
    • Acknowledge the contributions I make, but don't flatter me.
    • I often speak in an assertive way. Don't automatically assume it's a personal attack.
    • When I scream, curse, and stomp around, try to remember that's just the way I am.

    What I Like About Being a EIGHT
    • being independent and self-reliant
    • being able to take charge and meet challenges head on
    • being courageous, straightforward, and honest
    • getting all the enjoyment I can out of life
    • supporting, empowering, and protecting those close to me
    • upholding just causes

    What's Hard About Being a EIGHT
    • overwhelming people with my bluntness; scaring them away when I don't intend to
    • being restless and impatient with others' incompetence
    • sticking my neck out for people and receiving no appreciation for it
    • never forgetting injuries or injustices
    • putting too much pressure on myself
    • getting high blood pressure when people don't obey the rules or when things don't go right

    EIGHTs as Children Often
    • are independent; have an inner strength and a fighting spirit
    • are sometimes loners
    • seize control so they won't be controlled
    • figure out others' weaknesses
    • attack verbally or physically when provoked
    • take charge in the family because they perceive themselves as the strongest, or grow up in difficult or abusive surroundings

    EIGHTs as Parents
    • are often loyal, caring, involved, and devoted
    • are sometimes overprotective
    • can be demanding, controlling, and rigid
    Renee Baron & Elizabeth Wagele, The Enneagram Made Easy. Discover the 9 Types of People.
    every normal man must be tempted, at times,
    to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag,
    and begin slitting throats.

    5 - the Observer
    Thanks for taking the test !
    you chose BZ - your Enneagram type is FIVE (aka "The Thinker").

    "I need to understand the world"

    Observers have a need for knowledge and are introverted, curious, analytical, and insightful.

    How to Get Along with Me
    • Be independent, not clingy.
    • Speak in a straightforward and brief manner.
    • I need time alone to process my feelings and thoughts.
    • Remember that If I seem aloof, distant, or arrogant, it may be that I am feeling uncomfortable.
    • Make me feel welcome, but not too intensely, or I might doubt your sincerity.
    • If I become irritated when I have to repeat things, it may be because it was such an effort to get my thoughts out in the first place.
    • don't come on like a bulldozer.
    • Help me to avoid my pet peeves: big parties, other people's loud music, overdone emotions, and intrusions on my privacy.

    What I Like About Being a FIVE
    • standing back and viewing life objectively
    • coming to a thorough understanding; perceiving causes and effects
    • my sense of integrity: doing what I think is right and not being influenced by social pressure
    • not being caught up in material possessions and status
    • being calm in a crisis

    What's Hard About Being a FIVE
    • being slow to put my knowledge and insights out in the world
    • feeling bad when I act defensive or like a know-it-all
    • being pressured to be with people when I don't want to be
    • watching others with better social skills, but less intelligence or technical skill, do better professionally

    FIVEs as Children Often
    • spend a lot of time alone reading, making collections, and so on
    • have a few special friends rather than many
    • are very bright and curious and do well in school
    • have independent minds and often question their parents and teachers
    • watch events from a detached point of view, gathering information
    • assume a poker face in order not to look afraid
    • are sensitive; avoid interpersonal conflict
    • feel intruded upon and controlled and/or ignored and neglected

    FIVEs as Parents
    • are often kind, perceptive, and devoted
    • are sometimes authoritarian and demanding
    • may expect more intellectual achievement than is developmentally appropriate
    • may be intolerant of their children expressing strong emotions

    4, 5 or 9 depending on what I click on the second page. They all fit, they really do.

    9 or 4, maybe even 5, depending on what I choose in second question, where I cannot really decide. I think I will never find out my real enneagram type.

    I got eight or four. Maybe I need to self introspect more but I don't really feel like it.

    I got 8 or 4 as well. But I feel more like a free-wheeling 7 these days. Which probably means I'm a 9. Or a 5 who went to 7. :-D

    I feel like and test as 7 a lot. I don't think I'm 5 though. Maybe I'm 6, or a 9 that lost balance.

    Yeah, I'm not a 5. I figure I have strong 7 overtones due to that being a type that was heavily present in my home while I was growing up.
