So yeah, learning about yourself can be exciting. It can free you in the sense that it can provide you with the direction you always wanted to go, or it can confuse you, rendering you helpless at that which has come to light. Or (as was the case with me this morning) it can be a "hmmm, that's interesting... but what do I do with this?" moment. :P
See, I took an online enmeagram test this morning from the Enmeagram Institute.com Website. The tests are free, but there is one that costs $10, and is much more extensive, and is scientifically validated and what have you. So I took that one, figuring it'd help me define myself even better, and that it may be the key to the mystery of myself. :P Course, I got a shock. Nearly all of my results were 'tied' (a tie is within three points) and so I'm rather confused. See, it makes perfect sense to me, because I have always been open and somewhat free to do what I want and be the way I am, but I did think that some tendencies would be, well, stronger than others.
I mean, they are, but they're pretty much the same. Here they are:
Type 1: 17
Type 2: 12
Type 3: 14
Type 4: 18
Type 5: 21
Type 6: 20
Type 7: 11
Type 8: 17
Type 9: 14
Needless to say, I need to do some reading. :P In the meantime, I highly recommend this site to anyone who's interested in the Enmeagrams.
