I was reminded of this by the Zodiac sign thread, and figured I may as well share just for fun. ========== Take the test here: http://www.eclecticenergies.com/enneagram/dotest.php Once you've done that, the above website has some type descriptions, but I've found they are mediocre in comparison to the in-depth ones available at this website: http://www.enneagraminstitute.com/descript.asp#.Ualwxpzpw2g So I suggest you look there for a description instead. ========== The enneagram is a personality typology system. I generally don't expect much from personality tests, but this system is, in my experience, surprisingly accurate and in-depth. It gives you a personality type number, from 1 to 9. You may also get a personality "wing", which suggest you take on traits from a different type also. The "more levels by depth" section of the descriptions, is a measure of the different levels of "health" of your personality. More information on levels here: http://www.enneagraminstitute.com/DevelopmentLevels.asp#.Ualx75zpw2g But the thing that really captured my interest was this: Once you have your personality type, the same system can be used to as a guide to find an appropriate "path of transformation"; that is, a personality-specific method type for achieving enlightenment: And also gives an idea of what attainment for each type might be experienced as: More info on those details, for those who are interested, here: http://www.enneagraminstitute.com/spirituality.asp#.UalySZzpw2g And there's plenty of other interesting stuff on the same website, to be explored at your leisure. (I didn't look too much into it, but it sounds like Gurdjieff had something to do with the Enneagram) ========== I found that I was a 9 with a 1-wing. My description was freakishly accurate, and I found that I have experienced almost all of the "levels" of health. Most interestingly, though, my method of seeking enlightenment already was self-rememberance before I even knew this system existed. Maybe a coincidence, but still very interesting. I'm eager to see what other people think about this. I'll add a poll so everyone can vote for their result.
