    I took the online test and it told me I was a balanced 5, but when I read the type descriptions I could see some very strong elements of 7 and 9 in myself, and also some 4.

    Why is there no room for balanced wings in the poll?

    According to the test it said i'm most likely to be a Type 9, and to take into account my wings which were 4w5.

    I read the description of Type 4 and fully felt as though it summed me up, some elements of 5 as well, but i thought i was staring at myself in words with 4 lol!

    Says 5 sp with pretty heavy 4 (although 6 comes up third). Seems to be right.

    Fun, I actually think I am a type 6 now...

    4w5 or 5w4. I'm leaning towards 5w4 right now.

    In that case it is possible to research your own test results. Find those responses matching the type 8 category and reflect on why you selected those.

    The Enneagram test is limited to types with wings, it does not explain why the type 2 might score high on 8 if it's not due to being a stress point; it does not explain the friend whose high scores evened out at both 7 and 9. The test result itself is rarely a good substitute for self-reflection; hopefully, it should help provoke some of that, and not cause someone to simply give up.

    Wing theory does not explain why my highest test score the first time was type 3 when I am clearly a type 5. But after studying the system and the test results for a while, I knew why.

    The ANSIR typology gives 3 dynamics, not just one or two. So it is possible that my friend who scored evenly on point 7 and 9 is an Eccentrik (like a 7) and a Kinsmen (much like the 9). The ANSIR will reveal which of those two types is the Boss type. If Eccentrik is the Boss, then I would say my friend is the type 7 (knowing her, I would say that anyway).

    Any such test is a test of self-awareness, but the success of the result utterly relies on the objectivity of the test-taker. If you are not very objective with your self-awareness, then this will likely affect your test result. I don't know if that's the case here but it was for me 18 years ago when I took the RETI (before there was a RHETI) the first time.

    Sixes with a Five Wing are more shy, cautious, and withdrawn, which others often mistake as being cold and standoffish. It's really just that Five tendency to need private space, opportunities to observe before engaging, and a need to seek solitude until they can wrap their minds around whatever is bothering them. Like Fives, these Sixes are simply more introverted, intellectual, and attracted to solitary activities such as research or informational gathering. Fives' love of being alone to process and contemplate can benefit phobic Sixes' need for outside approval. Although it could lead to paranoia, most Sixes with Five wings remain loners because they simply like to protect their privacy, acquire knowledge to distinguish and separate themselves, and even shield themselves from too much outside interference.

    According to The Enneagram Movie and Video Guide, examples of Sixes with a Five wing include Warren Beatty, Gene Hackman, J. Edgar Hoover, Spike Lee, Richard Nixon, Janet Reno, and Brian Wilson. Movie roles that portray Sixes with a Five wing include Martin Landeau in Crimes and Misdemeanors, Sam Neill in The Piano, and Anthony Perkins in Psycho.

    A Five wing helps Sixes perfect a smooth exterior that hides a percolating intelligence and a lot more depth than you would imagine. Negative Five wings can amplify Sixes' phobias or counterphobias, particularly when Sixes spend too much time alone brooding over past hurts. When mixed with paralyzing Six fear, some start believing that danger lies everywhere and may become increasingly antisocial and paranoid.

    Yes, this is definitely me! Although the Anthony Perkins thing really creeps me out lolol......... I think if I indulge it, yes, I will start thinking that everyone is evil and out-to-get-me! lol....... (and sometimes I do)..... I give up on all this though, when I get dressed up and go out .... I love shopping, amusement parks, etc., so I think I use 7 sometimes too, and need to. I do operate with the 5 wing most often, though.
    I wondered what differentiated istp's.... like why some of them were so sporty when I was not. Then I found enneagram.....
