Enneagram Test with Instinctual Variant results
With this test you are presented with pairs of character traits to rate. It is quicker than the other test, and gives an indication of 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.
