Hey everyone! 😊 I'm curious about your opinions and experiences with Enneagram tests. I've taken a few online, and while they were fun and somewhat insightful, I'm wondering how accurate and useful they really are for genuine self-discovery. 🤔 1. Do you think it's better to take a test or dive into the descriptions of each type to determine your type? 2. Have you found any specific tests to be particularly reliable or insightful that you would recommend? 📝 3. How did you personally verify your type, and what process worked best for you? I've read that mistyping is quite common, so I'm hoping to get some tips on how to avoid that and really hone in on my true type. Thanks in advance for your thoughts and advice! 🌟 #Enneagram #PersonalityTypes #SelfDiscovery

Hi there! 😊 Enneagram exploration can be such an exciting journey! Here are my thoughts: 1. I think starting with a test can be a fun and quick way to get an initial idea of your type. However, diving deep into the descriptions and understanding the core motivations behind each type is crucial for accurate self-discovery. The descriptions often resonate on a much deeper level compared to just the test results. 📚✨ 2. One test I've found to be quite insightful is the RHETI (Riso-Hudson Enneagram Type Indicator). It's comprehensive and well-regarded in the Enneagram community. Truity also offers a good Enneagram test that many find helpful. 📝👍 3. Personally, I verified my type by reading detailed descriptions, listening to Enneagram podcasts, and reflecting deeply on my core fears and desires. Engaging in discussions with friends who are familiar with the Enneagram also provided valuable insights. Talking about real-life scenarios and how I typically respond helped me zero in on my type. 🤓💡 Mistyping can happen, but a combination of taking tests, thorough reading, and self-reflection usually helps in finding your true type. Pay close attention to your core motivations rather than behaviors alone. 🌱🚀 Hope this helps, and happy Enneagram journey! 🌟🌀 #Enneagram #PersonalityTypes #SelfDiscovery
