It's a good test but some of the answers are a little obvious in terms of what type they would be. I guess that's a bit of a trap in these tests.



I did not find "the trap" to be a problem here as I have on other tests. But I got the usual Four first, One second. However, Six and Seven always come out higher than Five, so this test failed pretty badly in the head fixation department.

4w5, 5w4, 1w9


I guess I am a brooding genius content in my relative obscurity, creating great works of scathing passionate discipline, which perhaps will be appreciated after my death beyond my circle of fellow poets and intellectuals who attend our weekly reading at our underground cafe. In defense of the test I will grant that Six always comes out about halfway down the types for me. As I have said before, this is the only test where I ever came out a Six:

and everything else came out like a little descending step ladder exactly the way I would've expected it to in a perfect world.

Well, according to this test you and I type pretty closely. Like probably three-quarters of the people on this board. According to this test I am almost a triple withdrawn. Now I feel like I belong.

From memory pik's test actually did have me as a 4w5 when I filled out the whole thing, so yeah that's why I said it was quite good. This one's okay ---- there are a lot of tests where people seem to mainly score as 4s or 5s.

the tritype questions especially seemed particularly bad. it would be incredibly easy for me to describe myself as "authentic" -- as in honesty about what i feel towards other people at any moment as opposed to honesty about how i perceive myself at any moment. i'm unsure that 4-like fixations apply to me, but it was incredibly easy to answer that, for instance.


edit: by the way, if anyone's curious, my results were 5w6-4w5-8w7, but i generally didn't like the tritype questions and it would have been easy for me to answer 541 instead.

Well, on your poll I was one of the minority of three who voted for Five, but I didn't know you so I figured due to the landslide defeat I must be wrong.

Who knows for sure?

I am definitely not like most 9s... and definitely not like most 5s. I feel myself somewhere in between. I might get a better idea if I manage to make it to the IEA.

I've been a type 5 for too long though, so I am a type 9 for now. And from what I can see, a lot of things do fit.

And by the way, thanks for voting 5. At least you don't follow the crowd .

You are a Type 5 with a 6 wing: "The Scientist"

Your tritype is 5w6, 4w5, 1w2.

Aren't this results strange?
If I am a 5, I should be a 5w4 if my second type is 4w5...
Or it means 4 is my strongest heart triad but my 6 is higher?

You are a Type 5 with a 4 wing: "The Iconoclast"

Your tritype is 5w4, 4w5, 1w2.

In enneagram theory, you have one type for how you relate to the world (either 8, 9, or 1), one type for how you think (5, 6, 7) and one type for how you see yourself (2, 3, 4.) Your tri-type contains one number from each of these triads. They are listed in the order of how strongly they present in your personality.

Your core type (your strongest type) is Type 5 with a 4 wing: Type Five individuals are cerebral, intelligent, and complex. Type Five is often called the Investigator type, because they are constantly trying to learn more about the world. To a Five, knowledge is power, and knowing more about the world around them makes the world a safer place. It’s common for a Five to withdraw into their own thoughts and ruminate on intricate ideas and concepts. Type Fives, when they are in a growth state, become self-confident and authoritative like a Type Eight. When they are stressed, Type Fives become scattered like an unhealthy Type Seven. You are a Type Five with a Four wing, which means that the cerebral nature of Type Five combines with the creative nature of a Type Four. For this reason, you are likely to challenge established ideas with new and fresh concepts.

Your second type (your next strongest type) is Type 4 with a 5 wing: Type Four individuals are intensely emotionally aware, and often retreat to their rich inner world of concepts and ideas. They are the most artistic type in the Enneagram and driven to create their own, unique identity. Type Fours value authenticity highly and express themselves whenever they can. They are one of the most individualistic types in the Enneagram. Type Fours, when in a state of growth, become principled like Type Ones. When stressed, Type Fours can become clingy like an unhealthy Type Two. You are a Type Four with a Five wing, which means that the individualist nature of a Four combines with the cerebral nature of a Five to make you one of the most creative types in the Enneagram.

Your third type (the least-used of the three) is Type 1 with a 2 wing: Type One individuals have a very finely tuned sense of right and wrong, and they chart the course of their lives by following a righteous path. This doesn’t have to be religious… it can be any set of principles that the Type One finds ethical. Ones are perfectionists, often setting high standards for themselves and others. Type One may very well be the noblest type in the Enneagram. When a Type One is in a state of growth, they become excited and joyous like a Type Seven. When a Type One is stressed, they become emotional and overwhelmed like an unhealthy Type Four. You are a Type One with a Two wing, which means that the righteous traits of a Type One combine with the helpful nature of a Type Two. This makes you naturally inclined to advocate on behalf of other people, and the welfare of others is probably an important part of your worldview.

Some words that describe you: principled, moralistic, perfectionist, self-critical, creative, unique, authentic, emotional, intelligent, cerebral, questioning.

Ciao Roshan, sei italiano? Pure io.
Seppur io possa avere un inglese un po' sgrammaticato, il senso mi sembrava chiaro... Mi stupisco che il mio risultato è 5w6 e non 5w4, visto che nel trifix mi dà 4w5 come secondo tipo. Ma forse, aggiungevo, è così perché il tipo 4 è solo il mio principale della "heart triad" ma è comunque superato dal tipo 6, oltre che dal 5.
Saluti. Leonardo.

You are a Type 8 with a 9 wing: "The Bear"

Your tritype is 8w9, 3w2, 5w6.

A pretty good test. I would've liked to see more questions, but I liked the diverse format.

"You are a Type 5 with a 4 wing: "The Iconoclast"

Close, but it takes a refined test to fetter out what is my wing and what is a tritype influence.

I'm 4w5, 7w6, 8w9....In that order definitely. I bounce between 4 and 7 easily.

Your tritype is 5w4, 4w5, 1w9.

too obvious. only good for main type. so obvious that you're effectively selecting which tritype you want to be from the last 2 sections.

i leant towards 9 instead of 8 as that's how I'd been feeling recently, expecting to end up 549, but ended up 541. i'm actually 5w4-4w3-8w9.

hey roshan,

that other test you posted was slightly more accurate, with the core number right and the rest of the data interpretable as 5w4-4w3-9w8, with also a strong 6 showing, which fits as I have been around a group of 6 friends for a week.

I got 5w4 4w5 9w1, which is close to my true tritype.

I don't stack them in any order than clockwise after maintype, so my true tritype is: 5w4 9w8 4w5.

I enjoyed it, for however much I can enjoy an enneagram quiz.
