    Skyhaven, are you familiar with the Enneagram? It’s nine personality types. I’ve taken the test three times and it consistently comes up that I’m a 5 with a 4 wing. There's a copy write test, so I can't share it. Don Riso and Richard Rohr are the pioneers. I’ve also purchased books from author, Helen Palmer.

    9types.com & Enneagram Q&A

    Don Riso has defined the Enneagram as "a geometric figure that delineates the nine basic personality types of human nature and their complex interrelationships." While the Enneagram suggests that there are nine basic personality types of human nature, there are, of course, many subtypes and variations within the nine fundamental categories. Nevertheless, the assertion of Enneagram theory is that these nine adequately map out the territory of "personality types."

    UPDATE: (see Enneagram post #163)

    Quote the traits given by the result of this test relate to the categorization of the masculine and the feminine personality traits.
    The traits weren’t assigned as gender specific. Rather, the percentages were assign based on responses from males and females test results. The personality traits are gender neutral. (see below)

    <3

    Personality traits:
    ◦ Extraverted (E) - Expressive, outgoing, prefer group activities, eager to speak their minds, more comfortable when around other people than when alone, get energized by social interaction
    ◦ Introverted (I) - Reserved, listen carefully, prefer solitary activities, more comfortable when alone than when around other people, get exhausted by social interaction
    ◦ Intuitive (N) - Introspective, rely on their imagination, absorbed in ideas, focus on what might happen
    ◦ Sensing (S) - Observant, rely on their senses, absorbed in practical matters, focus on what has happened
    ◦ Thinking (T) - Tough, follow their minds, suppress feelings, focus on objectivity and rationality
    ◦ Feeling (F) - Sensitive, follow their hearts, keep feelings close to the surface, focus on harmony and cooperation
    ◦ Judging (J) - Decisive, prefer clear rules and guidelines, eager to commit, see deadlines as sacred, seek closure
    ◦ Perceiving (P) - Probing, prefer keeping their options open, reluctant to commit, relaxed about their work, seek freedom

    I don't know much about this 'Enneagram', but I found a free test online and came out as an 8 with a 7 wing.

    It's helpful tool to understand strengths and weakness. For me, it’s important to move beyond the labels. Focus on where best to tweak perceived limitations. The original version I took is often used by people in the wellness fields. If I recall correctly, it’s over 100 questions in length. I took it three times over several years. The same result each time.

    Thanks in advance,

    UPDATE:

    “Discovering The Enneagram: An ancient Tool for a New Spiritual Journey,” by Richard Rohr and Andreas Ebert

    page xiii - The Enneagram is a mysterious model of the psyche that is not originally Christian, but probably derives from the Eastern tradition of Sufi wisdom.

    page xv - As a mirror of the soul the Enneagram remains a tool that can be laid aside at any time. The Enneagram is not the answer, but one signpost among many. Signposts show the way, but we have to take the way ourselves. So I hope that no one will turn the Enneagram into a new absolute doctrine of salvation. Every form of self-knowledge, be it ‘only’ psychological or ‘also’ spiritual, like the Enneagram, belongs to the realm that Dietrich Bonhoeffer in the ethics called the ‘penultimate’.

    I took both tests. They both pegged me the same:Type 2 Wings 3. And that is dead on right, both negative and positive.

    Found it interesting to note that David Icke views the fact that humans can be categorized into personalities as evidence of a programmed species (for if creations of the infinite then humans could not be contained into proposed personalities for they would be [far too many] infinite varieties).

    David Icke speculates [linked to time-stamp] that the source of these personality programmes are to be found in 'Junk' DNA.

    I don't believe these types are fixed. I like what David is saying about how these catagories are constrictive. But I want to add they don't have to be

    I do 'free off the internet' myers-briggs tests every 6 months. My results are mostly ENFJ but I noticed it switches to ENFP in certain environments, like when I had a 'controlling child' boss. But I left that job and sprung back to my normal mildly judgemental state.

    And my use of the transactional analysis 'controlling child' catagory... that boss I described may well have become something greater than 'controlling child' by now. I became aware of the transiency of these catagories when a team member of mine refused to participate in a Belbin team type exercise. I was fine with his freedom no qualms.

    He was a clever guy.... he agreed to be present while we did it on the condition we all treated the Belbin team types as transient

    Most of Avalon's members seem to be INFP or INFJ, which makes perfect sense!

    That doesn't look like me at all! I demand a recount. Seriously, it says I am INTP-A but that is not what I expected. Maybe I'll do it again in a few days. As usual I found many questions rather ambiguous, in that it would depend on specific circumstances what my answer would be.

    They’ve replaced the test from three years ago, and a new category is added. I was an INFJ, and now I’m an INFJ-A. One interesting note for me is that the percentages have changed significantly in 3 out of the 4 areas. I attribute it to an upgrade in skills, perceptions and approach to life in general.

    Mind - how we interact with our environment
    Introverted = 86% (72%, 3 yrs. ago)

    Energy - where we direct our mental energy
    Intuitive = 68% (36%, 3 yrs. ago)

    Nature - how we make decisions and cope with emotions
    Feeling = 78% (42% , 3 yrs. ago)

    Tactics - reflects our approach to work, planning and decision-making
    Judging = 52% (20%, 3 yrs. ago)


    New Category:

    Identity - underpins all others, how confident we are in our abilities and decisions
    64% assertive

    .....There's not much of a difference between
    an 'ENFJ-A, black a duck' and myself, an 'INFJ-A'.


    Meaning, there are times when my “I” turns into an “E” in one-to-one, small group settings, or in defense of someone being attacked. Another similarity is the “idealist quadrant”. (with respect to Avalon Land)

    This is a good place to add Marianne’s post:
    Quote About the differences between introvert and extrovert, as a life-long introvert, my take is that introverts internalize information, needing some time (whether seconds or hours) to process it, analyze it, try to fully comprehend it. Only then are we comfortable talking-discussing-perhaps debating it with others.

    From what I'm told, extroverts can process information on the fly, perhaps analyzing as they speak about it. I can't imagine what that would be like.

    Introverts can speak before crowds if we know what we're presenting. I have done this in classes without too much stage fright because I'm into what I'm presenting. But I don't always find much to say at a dinner party. Not much for small talk, love to dig into a topic of mutual interest.

    Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking, Cain explores introversion through psychological research old and new, personal experiences, and even brain chemistry, in an engaging and highly-readable fashion. By delving into introversion, Cain also seeks to find ways for introverts and extroverts to better understand one another--and for introverts to understand their own contradictions, such as the ability to act like extroverts in certain situations. Highly accessible and uplifting for any introvert--and any extrovert who knows an introvert (and over one-third of us are introverts)--Quiet has the potential to revolutionize the “extrovert ideal.” –Malissa Kent

    ENFJ-A here. Dunno what that means, (the A part). Gonna have to go read it now.

    When I was sick, and less awake, I was INTJ. I am now more in tune with myself spiritually.
