    Default I keep getting different Enneagram answers..

    So the first test I took gave me a 5, with 4 and something else as possibilities.

    Then I took another one (I think it was the same test, but I answered the toss-ups differently) and scored 4 thusly:

    Type 1: 3
    Type 2: 4
    Type 3: 4
    Type 4: 7
    Type 5: 5
    Type 6: 3
    Type 7: 5
    Type 8: 0
    Type 9: 5

    Then I tried a different test with agree/disagree strongly options and got 9 thusly:

    Type 1: -2
    Type 2: 4
    Type 3: -4
    Type 4: 7
    Type 5: 5
    Type 6: -9
    Type 7: -5
    Type 8: -6
    Type 9: 10

    After scouring sites for descriptions, I felt most comfortable calling myself a 5w4, and some form of 549.

    I just tried this test: http://www.enneagramquiz.com/quiz.html and it scored me as 1w2, 5w6, 2w1. And the description seemed pretty spot on, too.

    So, I'd like some opinions from ye who know the enneagram better than I.. ask any what questions you think are important to solve my riddle and figure out what numbers decode my mind. Thank you muchly for any assistance you may provide.

    I'm an INFP, if that helps.

    Many online enneagram tests tend to be unreliable, as many have pointed out to me. So, in theory, if I try this you might be able to see which type you are most like, someone else can back me up with this hopefully.

    Which one of these things are you most afraid of happening to you?
    -Being cut-off, separated from society
    -That you won't have a concrete identity, that you aren't unique
    -Being unwanted and unworthy of being loved
    -Of being deprived of pleasure and being in emotional pain
    -Being without support or guidance
    -Becoming evil, amoral, and even defective
    -Becoming worthless, emotionally, physically, and/or mentally
    -Being helpless and useless
    -Of being harmed and manipulated by others


    To see if this could actually work, which do you most desire?
    -To be in complete control of your own life
    -To feel needed, to be admired
    -To feel stable and calm
    -To be content and have needs met
    -To be adept and competent
    -To have a strong opinion between morally right and morally wrong and to have integrity
    -To be supported by others and to feel secure
    -To understand yourself and your purpose
    -To be loved

    I was just being snarky because I see OP is typed as INFP.

    And thank you.

    Hard questions.. Are most INFPs as indecisive as I? And why 4w5 rather than 5w4?

    Based on this you really seem like 5... It's not that common for INFPs, but it can happen. And yes we all are pretty damn indecisive .

    I took the free portion, and it surprisingly came up with 7 on top, then 9. The words probably impact the test a good deal, since most of the cards contained 2-3 words that really resonate with me and 1-2 that really don't.

    I'm still leaning 5, but I think I've got a strong 9 element in me. So 5w4, 4w5, 9w1 maybe? The weird test results probably arise because so many of the questions on these quizzes ask me to pick something when I'm both or neither.
