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.

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.

Jung said: "In the foregoing descriptions I have no desire to give my readers the impression that such pure types occur at all frequently in actual practice"
He was referring to the 8 main types of Jung typology (one for each cognitive function).
I think that this can also apply to enneagram and to many other systems as well.
So, if you score highly on 4 and 5, then perhaps you are a mix of both - and there is nothing wrong with that. If your confusion really doesnt get solved, I suggest to just pick the one you think its the coolest as your core/main type, and the other one as the fix or wing.
