What if my test results don't sound like me?

We did our best with our test, but no test is 100% accurate. No test or person knows you as well as you know yourself. The best way to hone in on your Enneagram type is by reading more about each type and seeing what sounds the most like you. Try to be deeply honest with yourself about who you are now and have been most of your life, not who you’d like to be. 

 

It can be easy to relate to the positive aspects of each type, but it’s often the negative traits that differentiate the most. Many people describe feeling a pang of guilt or shame when they read their own type’s negative traits. If it hits close to home and feels difficult to read, it’s a strong signal that you’ve found your type. 

 

You can also ask people who know you well to give their opinion on the types that you’re torn between: everyone has blind spots about their own behavior, and those you trust can shed a light on yours.
