PSTypes Enneagram Test

This is a new free Enneagram test I have developed. It has 171 items and it will take you about 20 minutes to complete.

The accuracy of the final version of the test is rather high, considering the data so far. The sample consisted of 198 people that had previously decided on their Enneagram type (of course, all 9 Enneatypes were represented in the sample).

The highest score indicated the correct type in 82,6% of the cases. The main type was among the first two highest scores in 95,6% of the cases, and among the first three in 97,2% of the cases.
I will make updates of the test's accuracy as I gather more data, but I don't expect radical changes to the figures. Part I: SelectionCheck all the traits that you think apply to you:

If you are a type Five and have decided on your tritype as well, feel free to leave a comment on how you experience it and how well the specific description fits you. There is always room for improvement.

They are more altruistic and generous than other Fives and also more social, involved and controlling. They want to help other people and usually do it by teaching them how to help themselves – they can make good teachers. However they have some trouble with acknowledging their own problems and needs and…
