The Enneagram Test
What Personality Type Are You?
Enneagram, a definition: The Enneagram finds its origins in theology, with theories stretching back for centuries. Its purpose is threefold: to identify which one of the nine personality types is yours, to describe the nature of the conflicting forces of each personality, and to describe the cycle of change that is constant in human nature.
This test uses the Enneagram to help you see yourself more clearly to become a more balanced and integrated individual. Nevertheless, it is important to note that the Enneagram does not promise perfection. Its goal is not to help you live in a constant state of Zen-like enlightenment. Rather, the Enneagram helps us learn how to accept ourselves and let go of the belief that life should be an ongoing quest for perfection. Then we can learn to rise to the more worthwhile challenge of reaching our unique potential. The Enneagram helps us to make the most of ourselves by teaching us to move beyond self-centeredness in order to make room within ourselves for others.
The Enneagram categorizes personality types into 9 unique types, each with specific patterns of thought, speaking style, emotions, sensations and belief systems. They are as follows:
- The Helper - The caring, nurturing type who always wants to help others, sometimes at the expense of him or herself.
- The Motivator - The success-oriented, practical type, who is constantly on the search for ways to improve careers and relationships, yet often neglects the obvious important things.
- The Artist - The sensitive, withdrawn type, who can appear initially thoughtful, but is often mistaken as apathetic or lazy.
- The Thinker - The intense, intellectual type, who often excels beyond all others, but can also recluse into anonymity.
- The Loyalist - The committed, security-oriented type, who will stand by another regardless of actions, yet can also be seen as too passive to take action for one's self.
- The Generalist - The impulsive, busy type who is always doing something - important or not.
- The Leader - The confident, dominant type who will be able to direct people into doing what he or she wants - for better or worse.
- The Peacemaker - The easygoing, modest type who always tries to find common ground between others, yet can also be taken advantage of quite easily.
- The Reformer - The rational, idealistic type who thinks before he or she acts, but can also be caught up in the ideal world, consequently failing to achieve realistic thoughts and actions.
Do your best to judge yourself honestly. The closer your answers are to your true character, the closer you will come to identifying your core personality.
