Eclectic Energies Enneagram Tests (free)

These two Enneagram tests help you determine which personality type you are.
Your wing will also be indicated.

Some suggestions on getting the most accurate results are below.

Classical enneagram test

This test has pages with 9 questions or less (1 for each Enneagram type). You'll get less questions per page after having answered enough questions to establish which types you are not.


Enneagram test with instinctual variant

With this test you get pairs of character traits to rate. It is quicker than the other test, and indicates your instinctual subtype as well.



Getting accurate results from these Enneagram tests

It's important to answer the questions honestly. Try not to answer them in terms of how you would like to see yourself, but in terms of how you actually are, or have tended to be in the past.

Actually it is not so easy to answer the questions honestly, as we all want to see ourselves as better than we are, and we often have preconceived ideas about ourselves that are not really true.

For instance, if you resent being fearful, you might have worked to develop courage to compensate, but the fear is still there beneath the surface.
Sometimes a trait might be so inconsistent with our self-image, that we actually deny having it ourselves, but become annoyed by it when we see it in others. Also, we might falsely think that we possess some desirable quality that we admire in others.

To derive accurate results from any Enneagram test, it is important to be aware of these very natural tendencies, and to answer the questions honestly.
