Which Riso-Hudson test is best for you?

Don Riso and Russ Hudson of The Enneagram Institute have produced several Enneagram-based personality tests for personal, group, and business use. Each of their tests is of different length, in a different format, and reveals different aspects of personality for confirming your type, as well as discovering more about yourself.

Each of the tests gives a different set of results for your further self-exploration for personal growth, relationships, and workplace applications. Each test is also priced differently, depending on the depth of the test and the amount of results or "reports" that you receive from them. There are graduated discounts on 11 or more purchases of all our tests.

The Free Brief QUEST

Quick Enneagram Sorting Test

The Free Brief QUEST

About 5 minutes, free
Ranking three paragraphs in two groups

The QUEST (Quick Enneagram Sorting Test) is an amazingly brief and accurate test for suggesting which Enneagram types are the top most probable candidates for your primary personality type. This test only takes about 5 minutes to complete and does not indicate your wing or the relative importance of the other types in your personality.

In business settings and introductory situations where there is little time for a longer, more detailed questionnaire, the QUEST is the test of choice. You will not only get the nine types ranked in order of probability of which one is your primary type, you will have access to extensive descriptions for all nine types. About 80% accurate for identifying your main type in the three top scores.

The QUEST-TAS

The Quick Enneagram Sorting Test & The Type Attitude Sorter

About 40 minutes, $10, with discounts for multiple uses

The QUEST-TAS is a two-part personality test. The first is the very brief Quick Enneagram Sorting Test (QUEST), which determines your three most likely personality types. Once the QUEST has determined your three most probable types, the TAS (Type Attitude Sorter) refines the process. In the TAS, you are asked to rate each of the statements on a 5-point agree/disagree scale. You are given the choice of taking the TAS in either or both of two forms: a shorter 45-question TAS based on your QUEST results, and/or the longer, full 135-question TAS. The program then generates scores for your top three Enneagram types and provides for all nine types in a full-spectrum profile, and the online version provides access to the Expanded Personality Type Descriptions (of over 5,000 words each).

The IVQ

The Instinctual Variants Questionnaire

The IVQ - The Instinctual Variants Questionnaire

About 20 minutes, $8, with discounts for multiple uses
Ranking 25 statements as "most like" and "least like" yourself

The IVQ is the first online test to measure our three basic instinctual intelligences: the Self-preservation, Social, and Sexual (Attraction) Instincts. The Instincts are a major factor in relationships since they are the central clusters of values and attitudes that drive us and our behaviors. The user selects which of three alternative endings in each set of statements is "most like" and "least like" herself. The test generates scores in all three Instincts, plus extensive descriptions of the three Instincts for your type and wing.

This powerful information will illuminate your personal and professional relationships. Your results will be more individualized if you already know your personality type and wing. (If you do not know these, it is best to take the RHETI before taking the IVQ.)

The TOLATsm

The Team and Organization Level Assessment Tool
The TOLATsm for Individuals

About 20 minutes, $12
Rating 45 statements on a 5-point scale

The TOLATsm is the first test of its kind in the world to incorporate the Levels of Functioning with the Nine Domains. This unique test provides a clear and specific indication of the Level of Functioning of a team, a group, or even of an individual. The TOLATsm is easy to take, and does not use technical or threatening psychological language or business jargon.

The TOLATsm may be taken in a few different ways: 1) as an individual with a group in mind, or 2) as an individual with oneself in mind, or 3) as part of a group being assessed by a trained 9D Facilitator. The TOLATsm provides a comprehensive “360°” consideration of a group or of yourself as an individual, i.e., the results are balanced across nine distinct fundamental Domains of behavior.

Individual results include the Level Indicator Report, which specifies the Level that you or the team you had in mind are operating at, and the Levels of Functioning Report, a 20-page in-depth presentation of the Levels for groups and teams. If you train as a 9D Facilitator, your use of the TOLATsm will include a complete team profile, enhanced reports, and interpretation materials.
