I took the brief enneagram test again, and got these results. I still think I am mainly a nine, with 1, 3, and 5 as quite strong, along with 2 and 4.
As with any identities, this is what I am, or at least how I appear, in a conventional sense. At the same time, the results change somewhat over time, and between each time I take the test.
It may be interesting to take these types of tests, and useful in some specific ways. For instance, it can help me notice patterns in myself, and – in this case – how I tend to seek safety. In the context of the Living Inquiries, it can help me identify deficient and inflated selves, and perhaps threats and commands, which I then can look at.
And these types are not what I really am. When I look for the me that’s a peace lover or peacemaker, I cannot find it outside of a collection of images, words, and sensations.
