Bah

Thanks to altariel the two second enneagram. I seem to remember this was invented by Jesuits, or possibly the Knights Templar. Anyway I think they may have been onto something.


Your Score: 8 - the Asserter


Thanks for taking the test !




you chose AY - your Enneagram type is EIGHT (aka "The Challenger").

"I must be strong"

Asserters are direct, self-reliant, self-confident, and protective.
How to Get Along with Me


  • Stand up for yourself... and me.

  • Be confident, strong, and direct.

  • Don't gossip about me or betray my trust.

  • Be vulnerable and share your feelings. See and acknowledge my tender,
    vulnerable side.

  • Give me space to be alone.

  • Acknowledge the contributions I make, but don't flatter me.

  • I often speak in an assertive way. Don't automatically assume it's
    a personal attack.

  • When I scream, curse, and stomp around, try to remember that's just
    the way I am.


What I Like About Being a EIGHT

  • being independent and self-reliant

  • being able to take charge and meet challenges head on

  • being courageous, straightforward, and honest

  • getting all the enjoyment I can out of life

  • supporting, empowering, and protecting those close to me

  • upholding just causes


What's Hard About Being a EIGHT

  • overwhelming people with my bluntness; scaring them away when I don't intend to

  • being restless and impatient with others' incompetence

  • sticking my neck out for people and receiving no appreciation for it

  • never forgetting injuries or injustices

  • putting too much pressure on myself

  • getting high blood pressure when people don't obey the rules or when
    things don't go right


EIGHTs as Children Often

  • are independent; have an inner strength and a fighting spirit

  • are sometimes loners

  • seize control so they won't be controlled

  • figure out others' weaknesses

  • attack verbally or physically when provoked

  • take charge in the family because they perceive themselves as the strongest, or grow up in difficult or abusive surroundings


EIGHTs as Parents

  • are often loyal, caring, involved, and devoted

  • are sometimes overprotective

  • can be demanding, controlling, and rigid
