Enneagram Test

The Enneagram Test: What is my Type?

Because the Enneagram Test focuses mostly on internal thought patterns and motivations, rather than external behaviors, you are the best person to identify your own Enneagram type.

Everyone has a primary type, and some people also have a “wing”, which represents a secondary set of personality traits, always adjacent to your primary type. For example, you can be a 7 with a 6 wing (“7w6”) or a 7 with an 8 wing (“7w8”).

To determine your type, look to the table below and see which description you most closely identify with.
