I have been typed by on-line experts as just about every Enneagram number at one time or another. One guy insisted I was a One because I was opinionated on some point. I haven't really been typed as a Two, but deras's test said I was, and he gives too much credit to that makeshift tool of his. A couple of people insisted I was a Five based on the way I wrote, then changed their mind when they saw my picture and insisted I was a Three instead. I was typed as a Seven a long time ago for some reason. One gal suggested I might be an Eight. I haven't been typed as a Nine yet, but with all this craziness, you never know.
I describe myself as a Four, so people who say I'm a Four are basically just agreeing with me.
Now for the punchline. Yes, I've been typed as a Six, too. You know why? (drum roll.....) Because I denied being a Six!
Thus ends my tale of stupendous stupidity. If you're going to argue with people about what type they are (a sure way to alienate them, but I digress), at least don't do it on an Internet message board. Attempting to type people based only on what they write is among the weakest and silliest methods I know.
