    Very well then. I know that I am a 5. I know I am sp/sx. But am I 5w4 or 5w6? I can't decide. It keeps switching back and forth. I am very irritated by this. Which am I?

    You believe it's possible to be completely positive of your enneagram type? Why? It's not written on you anywhere, and the tests aren't foolproof. I guess I'm confused by your confidence that such a thing can be known.

    Yuck. Why in the world you feel entitled to being an authority on it? Not even Gurdjeff dared speaking this way. If this is a joke, fine. Otherwise, bah.

    In a completely unprofessional opinion built off extremely limited and superfluous evidence, I'll say that you sound like 5w6 here.

    Because here's the 5w4 version (edited):

What does this say about life and me? Which one, oh, which one could I be? Alas! I cannot bear the ambiguity.... but I must, of course! God, please just shoot me now... Oh, hell, forget it.

    When I checked there was no stamp. I guess they forgot to put it on me. I must be very unlucky.

    That sounds more like a strong 4 than a 5w4.

    I don't mind being your test bunny.

    I couldn't figure out how it works. Took the test. How many wings can a person have - I've 3 ties for e.g, and though I'm type 4 here, it is very close. How does this gel with the ENTP; and how do I inteprete the relation between the main and the wing?

    Results as below:

    Type 1 Perfectionism |||||||||||||||| 65%
    Type 2 Helpfulness |||||||||||||| 52%
    Type 3 Image Focus |||||||||||||||| 65%
    Type 4 Hypersensitivity |||||||||||||||| 68%
    Type 5 Detachment |||||||||||||||| 61%
    Type 6 Anxiety |||||||||||||||| 65%
    Type 7 Adventurousness |||||||||||||| 51%
    Type 8 Aggressiveness |||||||||| 31%
    Type 9 Calmness |||||||||||| 45%

    sp/so/sx.

    You're right, I was probably a little too dramatic. Although a true 4 might sound like this:

    I don't know who I am anymore! Am I a four to adore? Or perhaps I am a five today,that jives, simply because I'd like to be one? Yes, that might be it. I shall be a five until tomorrow. Then I'll be a four again. Or maybe a six.

    There is a man, nearby, watching me, and I cannot tell whether I should run from him, alone, into the cold but safe darkness or else flee into his mysterious but passionate embrace. His eyes are black and indecipherable... like mine. Agony, yes, I know it is, to not know the answer to the meaning of my life, but if my heart was not breaking, perhaps I would not even realize I was alive!

    Wait, what were we talking about again?

    Don't hate me because I'm beautiful. Just love me.

    Erm. Is there anywhere I could redo the test again.
