    Why would you see that beneficial?
    We were thinking to show only a possible sub-type along with the main type.

    Are the subtypes indicated by the picture or person received with the enneatype? Two others who scored as fives received a picture of September, while I received a picture of Albert Einstein.

    If so, what do the subtypes themselves indicate?

    EDIT: Or did @BadOctopus just find a picture of September and paste it. Didn't think about that.

    Thanks for feedback.

    Questionnaire uses complex data-mining algorithm to converge as quick as possible to your dominant type, however when one has a strong sub-type, in your case that could be 9 or vice versa 2, then it takes more questions to end. In drive-response theory that subtype exists, and types 2 and 9 are very close to each other.

    Maybe you take a test once again, to check if questionnaire finds the same dominant type again?

    I did do that, yes.

    (Because get it? "The Observer"? Yeah, I'll see myself out.)

    I legitimately thought that it was included as a differentiation of subtype, which actually seemed like it would be a great example if the creator of the test actually watched Fringe.

    Saw you and greybeard both get "the observer" result, and I didn't see that Type 5 was labeled that until after email.

    Apologies to @Drea.

    A picture of Albert Einstein of course represents type 5.

    Drive-Response theory proposes a little bit different connections, on which also the core algorithm is trying to find your dominant type.

    We will display the sub-type information as we collect sufficient number of tests, to prove our hypothesis. And of course we are also going to reveal the theory.

    Do you see your self more as 4 or more as 6?
    4 and 6 definitely are different, but they do share commonalities. Namely, the two are both prone to depressive, anxious, self-doubting etc. attitudes, which I definitely identify with. My main motivations are to belong (6) and figure out who I am and what will make me happy in life (4). Some descriptions tend to put me off of 6 (traditions and authority) and some descriptions tend to push me off of 4 (creativity and pompousness). In general, I feel like 6 might be the better fit of the two, but I am not certain.

    I agree, 4 and 6 are both anxious and self-doubting. The main difference is that 4 wants to be unique (also dress in an unusual way) 6 is looking for security.
    Would you rather stick at secure job or rather change jobs or be an independent even for less money...

    I really do not think it's at all as simple as this question. The desire for security and/or individuality can manifest in ways other than a career. Though again, I'm sticking with 6 for now.

    This is the first online test that has recognised me as a 6, so congratulations! I was particularly impressed with the disclaimer you added. Test takers should only answer "yes" if they have illustrated a behaviour before, but this is something many Enneagram tests neglect to emphasise. What you want is not the same as who you are.
