Rowe Enneagram Test

This test is designed to score your results for the following 306 items, the first 27 of which scoring how closely you identify with a set of limiting subconscious beliefs for each Enneagram type (3 randomly chosen for each type), the next 27 of which scoring how closely you identify with a set of coping strategies employed as a result of having these subconscious beliefs (again, a random 3 of each type), the next 90 of which scoring you along a set of natural gifts and talents for each type (10 of each) and the last 162 of which scoring you along the three subtype descriptions for the nine types with 6 items chosen for each subtype: 3 positive items and 3 negative items. Because there are 846 items stored in the database, you will receive a random 306 of those 846 items whenever you take this test; your results are therefore subject to change upon a retest.

You can select five options per question, where the leftmost choice corresponds to "disagree/no" and the rightmost choice corresponds to "agree/yes." The three options in the middle correspond to only moderate preferences for each side, the middle option being specifically for "no preference for either side." To aid you in remembering this, "yes" and "no" have been labeled on their corresponding columns and have been colored appropriately.
