Finding My Type

Understanding your personality type helps you become the whole and complete human being that you were born to be. Finding your type is only the beginning of the journey of self-discovery.  “But what if I can’t find my type??”

Discovering your own type can be a tricky business.  Some people can pick out their type simply by reading the basic descriptions for the nine types provided in these pages. Others find that it isn’t that easy. They feel like none of the types fit or ALL of the types fit! It can be frustrating, particularly for people who like a sense of certainty or those who are eager to move ahead. 

My advice is to relax and enjoy the process.  Find a type that you can relate strongly to and begin observing yourself – your perceptions, your reactions, your desires and your fears.  It won’t take long to see things falling into place or to decide to move on to another possibility. 

If you wish, you can take a test on line. I highly recommend the Riso-Hudson Enneagram Type Indicator (RHETI). Any personality test should be considered only to be "a pointer."  We are very complex human beings and not so easily categorized.  It would be a mistake to assume that a test's results are definitive.  Your own observations are far more reliable.  

If you would like to speed up the process and create some certainty, consider a Typing Interview, a one-hour consultation by phone or in person.

Always remember – your personality type is not "who" you are.  It is how you have learned to be.
