Enneagram: What Type are You?
by Steven Miller

Are you a believer in the human psyche as a blend of nine interconnected personality types? If so, this is the quiz for you. We're going to ask you 30 very specific questions. Based on your answers to each one, we will be able to tell you what Enneagram type you are.

The word Enneagram is a derivative of the Greek words "ennea," which means "nine," and "gramma," which means something that is "written" or "drawn." This school of thought features nine distinct personality types that are separate but connected. Although there are pros and cons to the typology, the end goal of Enneagram typology is to enable the individual to format a plan, or a path, to enlightenment. The Enneagram of Personality has been used as a tool in business, spirituality, and the self-help community, and may be a significant tool that can be used to foster workplace harmony and self-actualization.

We've based our questions on factors that support each of the nine personality types. We know that, in reality, you are a combination of each of the nine types, but one of these types is dominant. Find out which Enneagram type you are by answering the questions in this quiz.

Let's get started.
