Enneagram

According to this personality test, I am an Enthusiast. Here are some quotes from the website:

  • The Busy, Fun-Loving Type: Spontaneous, Versatile, Acquisitive, and Scattered
  • Easily become accomplished achievers, generalists who do many different things well: multi-talented. Practical, productive, usually prolific, cross-fertilizing areas of interest.
  • How to motivate me. Sevens want to maintain their freedom and happiness, to avoid missing out on worthwhile experiences, to keep themselves excited and occupied, to avoid and discharge pain.
  • People like me: John F. Kennedy, Benjamin Franklin, Leonard Bernstein, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Winslet, Elizabeth Taylor, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Steven Spielberg, Federico Fellini, Richard Feynman, Timothy Leary, Robin Williams, Jim Carey, Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz, Bette Midler, Chuck Berry, Elton John, Mick Jagger, Gianni Versace, Liza Minelli, Joan Collins, Malcolm Forbes, Noel Coward, Sarah Ferguson, Larry King, Joan Rivers, Regis Philbin, Howard Stern, John Belushi, and “Auntie Mame” (Mame).
  • My Tendencies: When moving in their Direction of Disintegration (stress), scattered Sevens suddenly become perfectionistic and critical at One. However, when moving in their Direction of Integration (growth), gluttonous, scattered Sevens become more focused and fascinated by life, like healthy Fives.

So, take the test, and tell me who you are!

    OK, it says I need to take the big test because it can’t decide. I’m tied at a 3 (The Achiever) or a 9 (The Peacemaker). I think I’m more a 3 given the discriptions so far. But nothing 100% fits yet…

    Here’s the gist of a 3:
    The Success-Oriented, Pragmatic Type: Adaptable, Excelling, Driven, and Image-Conscious

    How to motivate me: Want to be affirmed, to distinguish themselves from others, to have attention, to be admired, and to impress others.

    People like me: Bill Clinton, Oprah Winfrey, Jane Pauley, Michael Landon, Tony Robbins, Tom Cruise, Barbra Streisand, Sharon Stone, Madonna, Shirley MacLaine, Sting, Paul McCartney, Dick Clark, Whitney Houston, Ted Danson, Michael Jordan, Shania Twain, Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarznegger, Billy Dee Williams, Kathy Lee Gifford, Truman Capote, and O.J. Simpson.

    My tendencies: When moving in their Direction of Disintegration (stress), driven Threes suddenly become disengaged and apathetic at Nine. However, when moving in their Direction of Integration (growth), vain, deceitful Threes become more cooperative and committed to others, like healthy Sixes. (I would like to say that I don’t think I’m ever deceitful…)

    At their Best: self-accepting, authentic, everything they seem to be—role models who inspire others.

    Perhaps we should take the big test, Honey! It includes quite a lot of details on getting along and working well with the other types. =-)

    Love ya!

    I’m a tie between a 2 “The Helper” and a 6 “The Loyalist”. I guess that means I’m a loyal helper. 🙂 Both are people oriented and desire a healthy peaceful community (I hate people fighting with each other!) Apparently, according to the list of names, I’m a cross between Mother Teresa and Malcolm X. EEK!! 🙂
