    So I got 8 answers for type 5

    World View: The world is invasive and confusing. I need privacy to think.
    Basic Desire: to understand the world
    Basic Fear: of being overwhelmed by the world
    I don't relate very well with it though.

    I had a tied score between 1, 3, 5, and 8. The lowest with zero was 2, then 4 and 9.

    When you take the test please copy and paste your results for future reference, and ease of discussing them.

    Scores:

    1 - 4
    2 - 3
    3 - 6
    4 - 2
    5 - 6
    6 - 3
    7 - 8
    8 - 1
    9 - 2

    Makes sense.
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    Thank you, you didn't have to, I just wanted to sugest it to the others.

    Did it help you at all in the way you think about yourself?

    I am not so sure about the fear of being overwhelmed by theworld.

    How do you understand the world in a way that that understanding protects you?

    I meant the questions Joy, they presented some insightful alternatives that you had to chose between, in my opininon those were quite interesting and help me think about myself in some novel useful ways.

    How does the intrusion affect you ladies?

    Does it make you nervous, does it physically disturb you?

    Not really, but it was less annoying than most tests because it gave me the option of not answering if neither made sense.

    For me, intrusion means that I am interrupted from my thoughts or activities which I am deeply absorbed in. I want to get rid of the person/thing that's interrupting me and get back to what I was doing or thinking.

    Intrusion also means to me that someone's invading my personal space or sticking their nose to where it doesn't belong. I hate being casually touched by people I hardly know for that reason. Its like they're invading my personal space or that I don't have complete control over my body.

    I also don't like being asked alot of questions unexpectedly. I need time to reflect and think of a response that accurately depicts my thoughts and feelings. I don't like being put on the spot where I have to think quickly on my feet in the presence of others. Although there are some situations where I like quick thinking when I'm alone.

    I also don't like it when I feel pressured to answer a question or respond. I want to respond when the time is ready and reveal something about myself when I'm comfortable and ready to do so.


    This is a great description of the INTJ worldview in my opinion, thank you

    Laura by the way, why do you need so badly to have complete and clear control of your personal space? If it is occupied by someone else what effect does it have on you?

    The basic fear part of this for me is being overwhelmed by new stimuli. I need time to process things, especially new surroundings and people. If I don't get this time, I panic.

    EDIT: I relate 100% to Laura's description of intrusion.

    I'm skeptical as the order of the types seems arbitrary at best. If they have any validity, I'm probably a 5w4, but not exactly sure on that. I think wings are infinitely more reliable than arrows, however.
    The order of the types is largely arbitrary I think. I think that the picture is symbolical (the circle I mean). However there does seem to be some correspondence with Jung's typology I think.

    Looks like 4w5. I didn't score as high on Type 1 this time. It's always between 4, 5, 9, and 1.

    UDP, what do you think jobs/education has to do with this? Like we try to fit the stereotype of a specific Enneagram type if we're in a certain field? Or certain types are attracted to certain fields?

    I think I am an Enneagram type 8 or type 3. It's hard to choose. I can use charm, but my main objective is to get teamwork going and accomplish. I especially like the independence from supervisors and others that being a 'go-to guy,' and harder worker nets me.

    Aahah. So strange. I'm the complete opposite. If I don't have new stimuli, I die and tend to get very unhappy. The more I have, the more tranquil I feel.

    What a horrible test. It's too short to be of any real value IMO.

    I'd be inclined to agree its an inaccurate test. I have little doubt that I'm actually a 4w5

    I think it's an OK test. At least I didn't end up being 6 again. I don't identify with 6 and I don't understand how anyone could. I suspect that I often end up being typed as 6 is because of Ti>Te preference.

    I am sceptical of the test's value, but it worked quite well in my case:

    Type 1 = 5
    Type 2 = 0
    Type 3 = 3
    Type 4 = 5
    Type 5 = 8
    Type 6 = 4
    Type 7 = 3
    Type 8 = 3
    Type 9 = 5
