Hey everyone! 🌟 I've been exploring the Enneagram and have taken a few online tests to figure out my type. While some results were consistent, others varied quite a bit! 😅 I'm curious about your experiences with Enneagram tests. 1. Are there specific tests you found to be particularly accurate or insightful? 2. How reliable are these tests in determining your true type, in your opinion? 3. Have any of you discovered your type through other methods (books, therapy, self-reflection) rather than tests? I'd love to hear your thoughts and any recommendations you might have for understanding my type more deeply. Thanks in advance for sharing your experiences! 😊🔍 #Enneagram #PersonalityTypes #SelfDiscovery

Hey there! 🌼 Great questions! Here are my thoughts: 1. I've found the RHETI test from the Enneagram Institute to be quite insightful and consistent. 🔍 Also, the Integrative9 test offers a more in-depth analysis, though it’s pricier. 🤑 2. Tests can give you a decent starting point, but they might not always reflect your true type. 🧐 They’re best used as a guide rather than a final answer, in my opinion. 🌿 3. Personally, I've leaned heavily on books and self-reflection. "The Wisdom of the Enneagram" by Riso and Hudson is an excellent read! 📚 Also, talking to a knowledgeable therapist can provide deeper insights. 💬✨ I recommend exploring a combination of these methods to gain a more comprehensive understanding of your type. Enjoy your Enneagram journey! 🌟💖 #EnneagramExploration #DeeperUnderstanding #PersonalGrowth

Hey there! 🌟 I totally get where you're coming from! Enneagram tests can definitely give mixed results sometimes. 😅 Here's my take: 1. I personally found the Integrative Enneagram (iEQ9) test to be super accurate and insightful. 💯 It gave me a detailed report that resonated a lot with me. The RHETI (Riso-Hudson Enneagram Type Indicator) is also a solid choice. 📊 2. Tests can point you in the right direction, but they’re not always 100% reliable. 🤔 Sometimes it takes a bit more digging to uncover your true type, and tests are just one piece of the puzzle. 🧩 3. I've found that reading Enneagram books (like "The Wisdom of the Enneagram" 📚) and talking to people who know me well have been incredibly valuable for understanding my type. Self-reflection and journaling ✍️ also helped me a lot. It's great that you're so open and curious about it! Keep exploring, and you’ll get there. A mix of methods is usually the best way to understand your type deeply. Good luck on your journey! 🌈✨ #EnneagramExploration #SelfDiscoveryJourney 😊🔍

Hey there! 🌟 I totally get where you're coming from. Enneagram can be a fascinating journey, but those online tests can sometimes throw you for a loop! Here’s what I’ve found: 1. **Specific tests**: The Riso-Hudson Enneagram Type Indicator (RHETI) test from the Enneagram Institute has been pretty reliable for many folks. 📝 It’s detailed and tends to give thorough insights. Another good one is the Enneagram Test from the Enneagram Universe. 2. **Reliability**: While the tests can offer a good starting point, they’re not foolproof. 🤔 Relying solely on the tests might not capture your complexities. They’re great for pointing you in a direction, but deeper self-reflection is key. 3. **Other methods**: Yes! 📚 I've found books like “The Wisdom of the Enneagram” by Riso and Hudson super informative. 🌿 Therapy and deep self-reflection can also be crucial in understanding your true type. Sometimes discussing with a coach or joining a community can provide greater clarity too. It’s a multi-faceted journey, and sometimes our type isn't immediately obvious. Keep exploring, and you'll find more pieces of your unique puzzle! 🧩 Thanks for starting this conversation, and wishing you all the best in your self-discovery adventure! 🚀😊 #EnneagramJourney #InnerWork #SelfGrowth

Hey there! 🌟 It's great to see you're diving into the Enneagram. It can be such a fascinating and insightful journey! Here's my take on your questions: 1. **Tests**: I've taken a few tests myself, and I found the RHETI (Riso-Hudson Enneagram Type Indicator) to be quite thorough and reliable. The Truity Enneagram test is also popular and has good reviews. But, remember, they provide a helpful starting point rather than a definitive answer. 📝🔍 2. **Reliability**: In my opinion, tests can sometimes give mixed results because of the nuances in our personalities and how we respond to questions. They offer a snapshot based on current feelings and perspectives, but self-discovery is a journey, not a one-time event. 🔄✨ 3. **Other Methods**: Absolutely! For me, reading books like "The Wisdom of the Enneagram" by Riso and Hudson or "The Road Back to You" by Cron and Stabile provided deeper insights than any test. Therapy and talking to friends who know the Enneagram well can also help illuminate your type. 🛋️📚💬 It sounds like you're on the right path! Take the test results as a helpful guide but continue exploring through reading, self-reflection, and discussions. The more you learn, the clearer your type will become. Happy discovering! 😊💫 #EnneagramJourney #SelfAwareness #KeepExploring

Hey there! 🌟 It's awesome that you're diving into the world of Enneagram! I'd be happy to share my thoughts and experiences. 😊 1. For me, the RHETI (Riso-Hudson Enneagram Type Indicator) has been the most accurate and insightful test. 💡 It gave me a deeper understanding of my type and subtypes. 2. While tests are a great starting point, I've found them to be just one piece of the puzzle. 🧩 Reading about the types, especially the core fears and desires, can give more clarity. 3. I've also found self-reflection and talking with a therapist who understands the Enneagram to be incredibly helpful! 📚🧠 Sometimes, discussing with others who know you well can also shed light on patterns you might not notice yourself. One helpful tip: really immerse yourself in the descriptions of each type, and notice which one resonates with you on a deeper, often uncomfortable level. 😅✨ Hope this helps, and happy self-discovery! 🌱🔍 #HappyTyping #EnneagramJourney #SelfGrowth
