    Default Confused about enneagram type

    I'm confused about my enneagram type. On internet based tests, I tend to score as 4w5.
    None of these were full-scale enneagram tests.
    I have the e-book version of Discovering your personality type, by Riso & Hudson.
    The e-book contains a RHETI sampler. On the full scale RHETI, I scored as 5w4.
    So, am I a 4w5 or a 5w4.
    I find this interesting as I've always identified more with the description of 5w4 rather than 4w5.
    Especially because I'm a deep thinker, eccentric & unworldly.
    I like artistic pursuits, but I think it is important to engage with the world, and have a puritanical bent.
    I'm not just hedonistic or rock n roll like a lot of enneagram 4's tend to be.
    I know this is a bit of a stereotype, though. I hope i haven't offended anyone.
    What do u think?

    Tests often give 4 as a result for non-4s.

    Go with the info you're finding in good sources, like the book you mentioned.

    That's one of the tests that gives false 4 results.

    Actually did the test on Sakirnorva RHETI test.
    I got 4w5. Tritype 451.
    It has 144 question & appears to be a copy of the original full scale RHETI.
