list of nine enneagram types of personality

Updated 21st January 2021

This enneagram test will help you discover which personality type you are.  This is really just for fun but you might find that it is quite accurate in finding your hidden personality type.

The Enneagram is  a nine-sided figure used in a particular system of analysis to represent the spectrum of possible personality types.

From one point of view, it can be seen as a set of nine distinct personality types, with each number on the Enneagram denoting one type. It is common to find a little of yourself in all nine of the types, although one of them should stand out as being closest to yourself. This is your basic personality type.

G. I. Gurdjieff is credited with making the enneagram figure commonly known  (see Fourth Way enneagram). He did not, however, develop the nine personality types associated with it. Oscar Ichazo is generally recognized as the principal source of the contemporary Enneagram of Personality. Ichazo's "Enneagon of Ego Fixations", together with a number of other dimensions of personality mapped on the figure, forms the basis of the Enneagram of Personality.

Since its introduction into the world of psychology, the Enneagram has been partially validated through experiential and empirical studies (for a summary see Sutton (2012) and cross-referenced with other constructs of psychology such as the MBTI). Enneagram teachers have also drawn on the work of psychologists outside of the Enneagram community to enhance the understanding and application of the framework. An example is the work of Karen Horney on psychological forms of defence which has led to Riso and Hudson developing the fractal pattern of the Hornevians or social styles. ((
