Which Enneagram type are you?

I’ve taken my fair share of personality tests (Myers-Briggs, StrengthsFinder, Insights Discovery). The Enneagram is my favorite for a number of reasons:

  • It focuses on motivations and values as opposed to more intrinsic qualities like extraversion or introversion
  • There are clear implications for how teams can communicate and work better together
  • It’s easy to identify areas for personal growth
  • The nine archetypes are a distinct yet manageable number to keep track of, as opposed to remembering 16 four-letter combinations or 34 individual strengths

You can pay for the full-length test or take a free, abridged version, but I’ve found a simpler self-typing exercise to be just as accurate. Many people who go the self-typing route identify with more than one archetype, and the process of reconciling to one primary type is an enlightening exercise in itself.
