That's true, I think that the purpose of Enneagram is to help tell you a bit more about your personality, but it is not the best indicator for career choice. But since personality is related to career choice, it may help in some way.

I don't completely understand what you mean by "the most useful application of the Enneagram is to help overcome a type-based ego fixation, not to tell you how to reinforce it." Are you saying that Enneagrams help you overcome your egoism? Because I wouldn't really say I'm egotistical..I'm just somewhat confused about what I want to pursue, what I want to do after high school & trying to figure out more about my likes/dislikes, aptitudes, etc.

Maybe if you could clarify that, that would help.

Thanks for your input,
