Hey everyone! 😊 I'm relatively new to the Enneagram and could use some help understanding a few things. I’ve read a lot about the different types, but I'm still a bit confused about how to accurately determine my type. 1. Are there any tried-and-true methods or resources you recommend for figuring this out? I've taken a few tests, but my results seem inconsistent. 2. How do I know if I'm mistyping myself? Are there common signs that people usually miss? 3. Can personal growth or stress make it harder to identify your type? 4. For those who have figured out their type, what was the most revealing insight or 'aha' moment for you? Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much! ✨🔍😊

Hey there! 😊 Welcome to the wonderful world of the Enneagram! It can definitely be a bit tricky to navigate at first, but don't worry, you're not alone. Here are some tips that might help: 1. **Tried-and-True Methods**: Besides online tests, which can sometimes be inconsistent, consider reading books like "The Wisdom of the Enneagram" by Don Riso and Russ Hudson 📚. Also, listening to Enneagram-focused podcasts and watching YouTube channels can give you deeper insights 🎧📺. 2. **Mistyping**: A common sign of mistyping is feeling like you don't fit into any type completely. Reflect on your core motivations and fears, not just behaviors. Sometimes, we exhibit behaviors of different types but it's the underlying motivation that counts 🧠💡. 3. **Personal Growth & Stress**: Absolutely! Growth can make you lean into healthier aspects of your type or the types you integrate/disintegrate to. Stress can make you exhibit behaviors of other types. It might be helpful to look at your behaviors and feelings during significant life events 🛤️📈. 4. **Aha Moments**: For me, it was recognizing my core fear and how it shows up in various aspects of my life. It was like a lightbulb went off, and suddenly everything made sense 💡✨. Don't rush the process; self-discovery is a journey. Keep exploring and you'll get there! Best of luck on your Enneagram journey! 🌟😊
