Enneagram Test


And I just discovered a fun new technique: an Enneagram test.

It’s a personality quiz that purports to identify strengths and weaknesses. The Enneagram Institute World Headquarters (doesn’t that sound like a cousin of Scientology?) claims that the Enneagram “acts as a kind of ‘mirror’ to reveal features of our personality that normally are invisible to us,” because most of us are on “automatic pilot.”

My friend Sondra’s been telling me about this for years, and I kept forgetting to sit down and learn more. I was reminded of Enneagrams this week, when Aarthi and I had dinner with a Hindu monk, who said that he finds Enneagrams fascinating.

Turns out I’m a 4.

I tallied a 5 — “The Investigator”.

  9. bymelissa said: Hah, just took it. And I’m a four, also. Which is not surprising at all now that I read about being a four.
