Greetings,

The following information is for fun. The bottom of this page provides links where you can have more fun taking intelligence, relationships, career and health tests.

*Note: This is for fun only. It is not my intent to promote or support any of these tests and their findings.

What's your number?

From: Kathleen V. Hurley & Theodore E. Dobson, What's My Type? Use the Enneagram System of Nine Personality Types to Discover Your Best Self 
Harper SanFrancisco, 1991

One: The Achiever

Deception: Determination (Anger)

  2. Is there a voice in your mind that criticizes everything you do and many things other people do?

  6. Do you think you try hard at everything in life and often wish you could be more laid back or easygoing?
