"nosce te ipsum" - Know thyself (inscription at the temple of Apollo in Delphi.)
Personally, I prefer The Matrix version of Know thyself.
So I'm picking up a print out at the copy machine at work and happen to see a printout a fellow worker has made. It is the results of something called the Riso-Hudson Enneagram. Having been a seeker of self knowledge via Myers-Briggs typology, my curiousity is piqued. So I make a quick mental note and return to my computer and do a quick search online. I find several books at Amazon.com on the subject, and order 1. It arrived today, and I read the first couple of pages and decide to see if I can find the test online for free. I do! So I take it. I took the short version, and the long version at http://similarminds.com. Even though my particular personality type is not typically well received by a select few, I believe the results are accurate with one exception. I'm always willing to help people whenever I can. I think it was the way the questions were phrased that indicate Type 2 is my weakest. My philisophy is "Give a man a fish and feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and feed him for a lifetime." Consequently, when one is weak minded and lazy, I will give. But when someone is willing to learn, I will help.
When I finished, some links were presented, so I'm placing them here for you to see.
Enneagram Test Results
Your variant is sexual
If you know me, let me know if you think the results are accurate. Given my type, I will consider your input very valuable.
I've been reading the book I bought regarding my type. It's fascinating stuff. While I read along, I find myself agreeing with so much of what is being said.
Join me, take the test and find out more about yourself.
