Enneagram Websites That Will Help Me Live My Best Life

8 Enneagram Websites That Will Help You Uncover Your Underlying Motivations And Basic Desires

We'll start off slow... what's your biggest fear in life?


The Enneagram is a popular personality test that prides itself on helping you play to your strengths and discover your weaknesses based on your basic desires and fears. This is an intricate system that many people devote their lives to, and here are a few starters to help you discover which "type" you are and excel from there!

1. So what the heck are types?


The Enneagram has 9 "types," or categories, that give a general overview of your general personality. As the Enneagram Institute likes to put it, "if you were to describe yourself in a few words, which of the following word clusters would come closest?" If you click on the link above, it will take you to a page that lists all of the types and their basic traits, desires, and fears.

2. What type are you?


This test from Enneagram User Guide has 36 questions (like the one above) and ranks the types, allowing you to find out which ones you tend towards. This is a great basis to explore the types that you score highest on to see which one you agree with most.

3. Are you sure?


Here's another test you can try!

4. Are you reallllly sure?

5. Don't forget the wing


According to the Enneagram Institute, "No one is a pure personality type: everyone is a unique mixture of his or her basic type and usually one of the two types adjacent to it on the circumference of the Enneagram. One of the two types adjacent to your basic type is called your wing."

6. So what's your wing?

This test, again from Enneagram User Guide, gives you three results that include your main type and your wing. Once again, with 3 options, it allows you to further research for yourself to figure out which fits you best.

7. But I kind of feel like parts of a few types?


So, looking back, you may feel strongly with your wing type. However, is there another type that keeps popping up that you agree with, too? Katherine Chernick Fauvre and David W. Fauvre came up with the idea of a tri-type.

According to the Enneagram User Guide, tri-types "basically look at an individual in terms of three types. An individual identifies the dominant type from each center (i.e., one type from the gut center: 891, one type from the heart center: 234, and one type from the head center: 567)."

Linked is a test that you can take to identify your tri-types!

8. Have fun with it!


Besides using the Enneagram to figure out your strengths and weaknesses, motivations and fears, you can also use it for other fun things like getting to know people around you better! Or just fall down the rabbit hole of Instagram and do bingos or try typing fictional characters!
