How are you categorized in this personality system?

If you have no idea yet here's a link to a test:

Eclectic Energies Enneagram Tests (free)

Feel free to discuss how you relate to your Enneagram type, which out of the Enneagram and the MBTI explains you better, ...

If you have a variant, please include it too.

I'm not a bird, a leak-resistant feminine product, and I'm probably not an angel, mostly due to that bit between birds and angels.

In any event, the poll is biased against me.

Type 2. I don't think I have a wing. I cannot seem to score 'properly' to get a one or three in the next category and always get 8. I am not however overbearing/controlling (the sign of an unhealthy 2). I pretty much gave up on enneagram due to this and am not going to alter my answers to make it work.

Maybe we could actually expand this question a bit (since it's in a more serious category) rather than just having everyone volunteer their enneagram type.

Like, "...and what does it mean for you?" or "Do you think the test was right or wrong, and why?"

Or some other question that actually provides some decent exploration (?).

Look at the bright side - you actually tested as one thing. I test as a 3456w9 (often tying with a minor 9). I've never come across this on any other test... and considering that enneagram uses +/- calcs... it's quite something.

Depending on the E test, I get high ranked in 2 too. I also get pretty high in 5.

I find it interesting as a complement to the MBTI type. It doesn't seem to give a behavioral description as full as the MBTI but the inclusion of motivations is interesting.

I'm a 2 and the wings were well 1 or 3 but really I haven't paid as much attention to them.

4w3, although it may eventually drift back to 4 or 4w5.

Yes, some of these tests give results that are all over the place...These ones seem to be more conclusive if you haven't tried them already:

Hmm, Well, the forced funnel would do that... but this is what I got;

Wing 5w6 - 13.8
Wing 5w4 - 13.7
Wing 9w1 - 11.7
Wing 1w9 - 11.3
Wing 6w5 - 10.7
Wing 7w6 - 10.5
Wing 4w5 - 10.4
Wing 9w8 - 9
Wing 6w7 - 9
Wing 7w8 - 9
Wing 1w2 - 8.2
Wing 4w3 - 6.6

I guess that makes me a 5!

You are most likely a type 8.

Taking wings into account, you seem to be a 8w7.

Type 8 - 12
Type 5 - 8
Type 7 - 7.3
Type 2 - 7
Type 3 - 7
Type 9 - 1.3

Wing 8w7 - 15.7
Wing 7w8 - 13.3
Wing 8w9 - 12.7
Wing 3w2 - 10.5
Wing 2w3 - 10.5
Wing 5w6 - 9.5
Wing 5w4 - 9
Wing 7w6 - 8.8
Wing 3w4 - 8
Wing 2w1 - 7.8
Wing 9w8 - 7.3
Wing 9w1 - 2.1

=> 8w7 sp/sx/so

The strong 5 score is definitely due to the NT temprament. Overall, my MBTI seems to explain me better though because the stereotypical type 8 is not seen as a "Rational" like the MBTI classifies the ENTJ type. Being an NT, I would consider myself a mental/intellectual person and I'm not a big hunk, physical type :) I'm of average complexion so the 8 stereotype of big muscles and physical conflict is far from who I am. For me, it's more to do with the energy, willpower, determination, assertiveness, desire to protect and of course of "doing my own thing".

You are most likely a type 5.

Taking wings into account, you seem to be a 5w4.

No personality test is completely accurate. Although several measures were taken to make this test as accurate as possible, there's always a chance that you are not typed correctly by it. Therefore, when deciding which Enneagram type and wing you are, you might also want to consider the types with the highest test scores on the lists below.

(Note that your lowest scores may be omitted.)

Type 5 - 7.7
Type 9 - 5
Type 4 - 2
Type 6 - 1

Wing 5w4 - 8.7
Wing 5w6 - 8.2
Wing 9w1 - 6
Wing 4w5 - 5.8
Wing 9w8 - 5.7
Wing 6w5 - 4.8
Wing 4w3 - 2
Wing 6w7 - 2
