The Enneagram of Personality is a model of nine personality types. It is frequently used in self-help, business management, and spiritual development. Its adherents claim that the model is centuries-old, although the evidence for this claim is unclear.
The Enneagram is not an instrument that is commonly used in psychological research, although proponents like Virginia Price (psychologist, Ph.D.) and David Daniels (M.D. and professor of psychiatry at Stanford University) claim to have found scientific support for the model.

The IDRlabs Enneagram of Personality Test is the property of IDRlabs International.
Ours is one of the few free tests that is subjected to statistical controls and validation. Even so, please keep in mind that tests are merely indicators – a first peek at the index to get you started.
Personality Tests, Team Role Tests, and Career Tests, whether they are professional or "official" tests like the MBTI® (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator®), the NEO PI-R, Five Factor Model Test, or free online Enneagram of Personality tests like this one, are merely indicators to help you find your personal outlook on the relevant indices measured. No test ever devised can designate your Enneagram or personality type with complete accuracy or reliability and no personality test can replace familiarizing yourself with the works of the relevant theories in the field.
As the publishers of this free online Enneagram test, which allows you to discover your preferred Enneagram type, we have endeavored to make the test as reliable, valid, accurate, and complete as possible.
Like the "official" tests such as the Belbin test, the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator®, the Jung Type Indicator, the NEO PI-R, and other such professional, accurate instruments (with which the present test should not be confused), our free online test is subjected to statistical controls and validation in order to make the results accurate and trustworthy.
The authors of this free online Enneagram test are certified in the use of numerous personality tests and have worked professionally with psychometrics, typology, and personality testing. Prior to using our free Enneagram test, please note that while some of the results provided may be compatible with the results of other tests and training materials, this test should not be confused with official trademarked tests, such as the ones mentioned above. The results of our free online Enneagram of Personality test are provided "as-is", for free, and should not be construed as providing professional or certified advice of any kind.
