The Enneagram can be seen as a set of nine distinct personality types, with each number on the Enneagram denoting one type. It is common to find a little of yourself in all nine of the types, although one of them should stand out as being closest to yourself. This is your basic personality type.
As you think about your personality, which of these nine roles fits you best most of the time? Or, to put it differently, if you were to describe yourself in a few words, which of the following word clusters would come closest?
Type One - The Reformer is principled, purposeful, self-controlled, and perfectionistic.
Type Two - The Helper is demonstrative, generous, people-pleasing, and possessive.
Type Three - The Achiever is adaptive, excelling, driven, and image-conscious.
Type Four - The Individualist is expressive, dramatic, self-absorbed, and temperamental.
Type Five - The Investigator is perceptive, innovative, secretive, and isolated.
Type Six - The Loyalist is engaging, responsible, anxious, and suspicious.
Type Seven - The Enthusiast is spontaneous, versatile, distractible, and scattered.
Type Eight - The Challenger is self-confident, decisive, willful, and confrontational.
Type Nine - The Peacemaker is receptive, reassuring, agreeable, and complacent.
