Enneagram test says 7w8.

Type 7 - The Enthusiast
Pleasure seekers and planners, in search of distraction

Type 8 - The Challenger
Taking charge, because they don't want to be controlled

I'd say this is pretty close although I don't consider myself an enthusiast, at least not on the surface. That would require me to show my feelings!

I freaked out because it said the variant is "Sexual variant". I read it as sexual deviant. LOL!

INTJ for me. Enneagramwise I'm a 1W4 SX. Seems spot on.

You are most likely a type 3 (the Achiever) with 2 wing

Sexual variant

My second closest type was the Challenger. Seems right.

Hi all, long time no post, I've just been doing my sober thang and check in here from time to time...this is an interesting post so I'm out of hiding.

I'm also in INFJ, I've known that for many years and when I first took the test in my early 20's I was not happy....it said INFJ's were 1-2% of the population or some such thing so all it did was confirm to me at the time that I was as weird as I thought I was.

Now I know otherwise and in my sober-ness I've quickly learned to embrace and love my weird little self! I'm also an AVRT gal for the record.

Enneagram is awesome but it is harder to figure out your type, the online tests mistyped me several times, I finally found a book and read them all to figure out where I fit into that....4 wing 5

I did some more reading on my type. My type is about 2% of the population and our Enneagram type is usually Achiever and Helper, exactly what mine were. Pretty cool stuff.

Funny when I did a MB training for the state department of ed where I worked some people wore their little IDs for weeks. It is not an identity it is a type and tends to level some over time. My strongest are Introvert and feeling. But my feeling is allowing my Introvert to reach out.

I took the Briggs Meyers test in November of 2008 and came up
an ENFJ. Now I am ENFP. Interesting!

In the enneagram one I am a "Enthusiast" with a "Skeptic" wing.

What other cool tests can we take?

Lol stairs.
I took another one called kingdomolity, I think.
Will withhold who I am until you do it.
Let me know if you can't find it - I can google it when I get home.

Well I think E J's are good at running the meetings. I Ps like me try to be there quietly of course the P spills the coffee, the F just makes me really care about what I here and the N lets me know its going to happen.

I couldn't do divorce/custody for five minutes, it would kill me. My own divorce years ago just about did me in! I don't know if I could be a prosecutor either. Criminal stuff has never been my thing, on either side of it.

I bet the BIA work is interesting.

I do wills and estate planning--I have a knack for explaining difficult concepts and working thru the natural discomfort of talking about and dealing with mortality.

Okay, I'm an "Achiever" with a "Helper" Wing. Or possibly the other way around, my scores were really close. I'm not surprised in the least!

Interestingly my INFJ type has been very stable over time. I first took a Myers Briggs about 20 years ago and I take one every few years--it's always the same.

What's really fun is to have your spouse or SI take the test too and see how you match up. Some types match up better than others. My husband is ENTP, which is supposedly the best type for an INFJ.

The Kingdomality was cool. I'm a discoverer. Fits with my bucket list SCUBA/snorkle and run in the jungle in Belieze, Fiji, Bora-Bora, Costa Rica, Curacao, Tulum, Andros, Cayman, Turks & Caicos, Honduras, Dry Tortugas and on and on. So much water, so little time (and money - LOL).

When I first took this one, I was a Benevolent Dictator. Yesterday I came out Dreamer-Minstrel. O think the former has been my public face and the latter is the inner self. It's post time to bring the two into alignment... by going with my gut.

I just found another site - Keirsey Temperament Website - Overview of the Four Temperaments


I took the test today and got ISFP. I realized that I took the test 2 years ago and got the same thing. Interesting.

Now I'm confused, I don't know what my personality is!

Here's another site that explains the types - They call ISFP the Artist.

lol!!

I am a "White Knight" in Kingdomality.

"Don Quixote was a White Knight as was Joan of Arc, the Lone Ranger and Crusader Rabbit. As a White Knight you expect nothing in return for your good deeds. You are one of the true "Givers" of the world. You are the anonymous philanthropist who shares your wealth, your time and your life with others. To give, is its own reward and as a White Knight you seek no other. On the positive side you are merciful, sympathetic, helpful, giving and heroic. On the negative side you may be impulsively decisive, sentimental and misdirected. Interestingly, your preference is just as applicable in today's corporate kingdoms."

Crusader Rabbit? Hahaha...that would make a great tee shirt.

Really types are life long they just tend to center with age. Studied and taught this for about 2o years and it doesn't change as much as it becomes less extreme execpt for my Introvert which seems to become more introverted but I go into the breach,once more
