Open Enneagram Test
Based on the work of Virginia Price, Ph.D. and David Daniels, M.D.
The Enneagram is a model of nine personality types. It is widely used for personal and spiritual development, as well as in business settings.
The Enneagram has been used by various practitioners for at least 70 years. Different traditions have developed, and there is no one definitive test. As a result, many Enneagram tests are based on no more than the personal intuitions of their authors.
This test is based on the data from the Open-Source Psychometrics Project and fused with the work of Virginia Price (psychologist, Ph.D.) and David Daniels (M.D. and professor of psychiatry) in an attempt to provide an Enneagram Test that is more data-driven and grounded in research than other tests.
What is your Enneagram type? For each of the following statements, indicate how well it applies to you below.
Question 1 of 36
I spend most of my time trying to understand things.
With the exception of the 36 items, which are the property of the Open-Source Psychometrics Project, The IDRlabs Open Enneagram of Personality Test is the property of IDRlabs International.
Ours is one of the few free and fast Enneagram tests that is subjected to statistical controls and validation. Even so, please keep in mind that tests are merely indicators – a first glance at the system of personality in question to get you started.
Personality Tests, Toxic Workplace 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, FFM, Five Factor Model Test, or free digital Open Enneagram of Personality tests like this one, are merely indicators to help you find your personal outlook on the relevant parameters measured. No test ever devised can designate your Open Enneagram personality type with complete accuracy or validity, and no personality test can replace familiarizing yourself with the works of the relevant theories concerning it in depth.
As the publishers of this Open Enneagram test, which is based on validated data and allows you to discover your preferred Enneagram type, we have endeavored to make the test as reliable, valid, accurate, comprehensive, and complete as possible.
