Actually they just look like depressed Sevens.

So what? Most tests are generally the same, and equally superficial too. For what it's worth, it seems the best are the RHETI (the full form, NOT the sampler) at www.enneagraminstitute.com, Ewald's type-and-wing test at www.9energies.info, and Deras's long test (once again, NEVER the short one) at www.similarminds.com.
The three instinctual variants of each type can be remarkably different. The following page has useful information:
> I certainly feel a lot like a 4 sometimes, but if I look back to a couple years ago I'm pretty certain I am a 7. Or... was a 7. I'm just trying to find my real type, and not something that might only be a phase in my life.
Enneatype is like sexual orientation: if you're unsure of it, you would, at the moment, best ascertain it by examining your life so far as a whole. For instance, have you been truly and consistently attracted to members of the opposite sex? Oops, I'm confusing myself here.
