    5 - the Observer

    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

    I got 4. Most of the description doesn't fit me.

    More proof I do not fit inside an odd shape with numbers attached to it.

    Enneagram type is NINE (aka "The Mediator")

    "I am at peace"

    Peacemakers are receptive, good-natured, and supportive. They seek union with others and the world around them.

    How to Get Along with Me

    * If you want me to do something, how you ask is important. I especially don't like expectations or pressure.
    * I like to listen and to be of service, but don't take advantage of this.
    * Listen until I finish speaking, even though I meander a bit.
    * Give me time to finish things and make decisions. It's OK to nudge me gently and nonjudgmentally.
    * Ask me questions to help me get clear.
    * Tell me when you like how I look. I'm not averse to flattery.
    * Hug me, show physical affection. It opens me up to my feelings.
    * I like a good discussion but not a confrontation.
    * Let me know you like what I've done or said.
    * Laugh with me and share in my enjoyment of life.

    What I Like About Being a NINE

    * being nonjudgmental and accepting
    * caring for and being concerned about others
    * being able to relax and have a good time
    * knowing that most people enjoy my company; I'm easy to be around
    * my ability to see many different sides of an issue and to be a good mediator and facilitator
    * my heightened awareness of sensations, aesthetics, and the here and now
    * being able to go with the flow and feel one with the universe

    What's Hard About Being a NINE

    * being judged and misunderstood for being placid and/or indecisive
    * being critical of myself for lacking initiative and discipline
    * being too sensitive to criticism; taking every raised eyebrow and twitch of the mouth personally
    * being confused about what I really want
    * caring too much about what others will think of me
    * not being listened to or taken seriously

    NINEs as Children Often

    * feel ignored and that their wants, opinions, and feelings are unimportant
    * tune out a lot, especially when others argue
    * are "good" children: deny anger or keep it to themselves

    NINEs as Parents

    * are supportive, kind, and warm
    * are sometimes overly permissive or nondirective

    That probably requires yoga.

    I got 4, but I was a little undecided on the second question, either X or Y, which would make me a 9 or 4, respectively. I'm definitely a 4, though.

    Three for meee.

    3 - the Achiever

    "I need to succeed"

    Achievers are energetic, optimistic, self-assured, and goal oriented.

    How to Get Along with Me

    Leave me alone when I am doing my work.
    Give me honest, but not unduly critical or judgmental, feedback.
    Help me keep my environment harmonious and peaceful.
    Don't burden me with negative emotions.
    Tell me you like being around me.
    Tell me when you're proud of me or my accomplishments.
    What I Like About Being a THREE

    being optimistic, friendly, and upbeat
    providing well for my family
    being able to recover quickly from setbacks and to charge ahead to the next challenge
    staying informed, knowing what's going on
    being competent and able to get things to work efficiently
    being able to motivate people
    What's Hard About Being a THREE

    having to put up with inefficiency and incompetence
    the fear on not being -- or of not being seen as -- successful
    comparing myself to people who do things better
    struggling to hang on to my success
    putting on facades in order to impress people
    always being "on." It's exhausting.
    THREEs as Children Often

    work hard to receive appreciation for their accomplishments
    are well liked by other children and by adults
    are among the most capable and responsible children in their class or school
    are active in school government and clubs or are quietly busy working on their own projects
    THREEs as Parents

    are consistent, dependable, and loyal
    struggle between wanting to spend time with their children and wanting to get more work done
    expect their children to be responsible and organized
