Free Enneagram Test...

Free Enneagram Test

The Riso-Hudson Enneagram Type Indicator (RHETI) Sampler is a free Enneagram test that serves as an introduction to the complete Riso-Hudson Enneagram Type Indicator (RHETI Version 2.5) which you can take online for $10 US.

The 36 questions in this free Enneagram test are only a small portion of the full, independently scientifically validated 144-question RHETI personality inventory, which Time magazine selected as one of the top online personality tests. Short personality quizzes such as this cannot guarantee that your basic personality type will be indicated, although your type will most likely be in the top three scores in this personality test. We recommend that you read the summary descriptions of the Enneagram types to further narrow down which is your basic personality type. Much more thorough descriptions of the types are provided with the full RHETI Enneagram test.


My results from the free test are shown below. They seem to be pretty accurate, considering I have only taken the 36 question test. Some time down the road I might utilize the longer test, but not now. I'm more convinced by the results of the StrengthsFinder test and it's results, but this doesn't seem to be a bad additional tool.
