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 or Point 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 provided in these pages. For others, it’s not 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 would like to speed up the process or get more clarity, you might enjoy an hour spent with Kathleen exploring the possibilities based on your own life experience.  You can contact Kathleen for a personal Enneagram Typing Hour or even set your own appointment by clicking here.

About Testing:  The results of any personality test should be considered only as “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.  That being said, taking a test can be illuminating and fun!

If you wish, you can take a test on line, here are two recommendations: 

Riso-Hudson Enneagram Type Indicator (RHETI). The cost is $12. 

Eclectic Energies test.  This is a free test.

Always remember – your Personality Type is not “who” you are. 
It is how you have learned to be.
