Enneagrams

22 02 2007

Two days ago, that is if my timetable isn`t too screwed by odd sleeping patterns and I`m not mixing up days, I got a link to a polish website with an enneagram test. Thinking it might be another of the silly tests that clutter the blogs, livejournals and myspace profiles, I decided to check out the link anyway.
After doing the test, to my amazement the results came out to be rather accurate; they confirmed what I expected about myself AND also helped out to answer few questions, and in general made me go “wow, this is so true”!

So, what were the results? Well, according to the test I`m “type four with wing in five”, meaning an individualist (wing in five was described as “bohemian” type as opposed to wing in three which is named the “aristocrat” type).

I`ll just paste in a bit of text here, taken from this place.

“Four With a 5 Wing
Healthy side of this wing brings a withdrawn, complex creativity. May be somewhat intellectual but have exceptional depth of feeling and insight. Very much their own person; original and idiosyncratic. Have a spiritual and aesthetic openness. Will find multiple levels of meaning to most events. May have a strong need and ability to pour themselves into artistic creations. Loners; can seem enigmatic and hard to read. Externally reserved and internally resonant. When they open up it can be sudden and total. When entranced or defensive, Fours with a 5 wing can easily feel alienated and depressed. Many have a sense of not belonging, of being from another planet. Can get lost in their own process, drown in their own ocean. Whiny – tend to ruminate and relive past experience. Prone to the emotion of shame. Air of sullen, withdrawn disappointment. May live within a private mythology of pain and loss. Can get deeply morbid and fall in love with death.

Real-Life Fours With a 5 Wing: Diane Arbus, Marlon Brando, Richard Brautigan, Jackson Browne, Kurt Cobain, Leonard Cohen, Isak Dinesen, Pink Floyd, Harvey Keitel, Philip Larkin, Thomas Merton, Sylvia Plath, Edgar Allen Poe, Arthur Rimbaud, Anne Sexton, James Taylor, Vincent van Gogh, Virginia Woolf, Neil Young.”

And it seems to be true. Scary, how 36 questions can tell the truth about you.
