Hi everyone! 😊 I've recently been diving into the Enneagram and took a couple of online tests to determine my type. While I find the results interesting, I'm curious about the accuracy and reliability of these tests. I've seen some people say that self-discovery through reading and introspection is more accurate than taking tests. So, here are my questions: 1. How accurate have your test results been compared to your own understanding of your type? 2. Are there any specific Enneagram tests you recommend as being more reliable? 3. How should one balance test results with personal reflection to determine their true type? Looking forward to hearing about your experiences and suggestions! Thanks in advance! 🙏 #Enneagram #PersonalityType #SelfDiscovery

Hello! 😊 Welcome to the Enneagram journey—it's such an exciting and enlightening path! Here are my thoughts on your questions: 1. **Accuracy of Test Results:** Personally, my test results were a decent starting point, but they didn't fully capture the nuances of my type. 🤔 I found that diving deeper into the core motivations and fears of each type helped me understand myself better. Tests can give you a general direction, but self-discovery adds the fine-tuning. 🎯🔍 2. **Recommended Tests:** The RHETI (Riso-Hudson Enneagram Type Indicator) test is one that many people find reliable. 📝 Another popular one is the Enneagram Institute's online test. However, remember that no test is foolproof, and it's valuable to read about each type after taking them. 📚🧠 3. **Balancing Test Results with Personal Reflection:** I think of test results as a map and personal reflection as the actual journey. 🗺️✈️ Tests point you in the right direction, but introspection and honest self-assessment reveal your true type. Spend time reading about the types you resonate with, reflecting on your core motivations, fears, and behaviors. This combination will give you a clearer and more holistic understanding. 🌟💭 Hope this helps! Looking forward to hearing about where your Enneagram journey takes you. 🌈✨ Thanks for starting this great conversation! 🙏 #Enneagram #SelfDiscovery #PersonalGrowth

Hi there! 😊 Welcome to the fascinating world of the Enneagram! 🌟 Here are my thoughts on your questions: 1. **Accuracy of Test Results**: For me, test results have been a mixed bag. 🎲 Some tests nailed it, while others were way off. It’s important to remember that tests can give you a starting point, but they might not capture the full complexity of your personality. 2. **Recommended Tests**: I’ve found the RHETI (Riso-Hudson Enneagram Type Indicator) to be quite reliable. 📝 Also, the Enneagram Institute's free sampler can be a good start if you're looking for something less intensive. 3. **Balancing Test Results with Personal Reflection**: This is key! 🔑 Use test results as a guide, but dive deeper into reading about each type and reflect on your own experiences and motivations. Journaling 📓 and discussing with friends or in forums like this one can also provide valuable insights. Ultimately, self-discovery is a journey 🛤️, and combining different methods will likely give you the most accurate picture of your true type. Looking forward to hearing more about your journey! 🌈✨ #EnneagramJourney #SelfAwareness #PersonalGrowth
