I'm a nine.

So if you follow Maskcara as I faithfully do, you will see that her post today is about personality styles. She took the Enneagram Test to find out what her "number" was according to the results. It peaked my interest to say the least. I remember taking the Jung Typology Test in college and I was an ENTJ  (Extravert 22%, INtuitive 12%, Thinking 1%, Judging 67%). At the time, I didn't think anything of it. But looking at those letters today, I realize that my judgement over perception needs some adjustment.

Before I got to Google search this particular personality test, Cara listed out what each number meant.

1 | The Reformer
2 | The Helper
3 | The Achiever
4 | The Individualist
5 | The Investigator
6 | The Loyalist
7 | The Enthusiast
8 | The Challenger
9 | The Peacemaker

I took the sampler test, all 30-something questions (I can't imagine how many questions are on the full version of the test!), and scored--wait for it--a......
The easy-going, self-effacing type: 
receptive, reassuring, agreeable and complacent.

These were the ranks for all numbers:
9: 1st place
3, 5 and 6: Tied for 2nd place
4 and 7: Tied for 3rd place
2: 4th place
8: 5th place
1: 6th and last place

What does that mean? Please note that these scores don't 100% typecast someone.

THE PEACEMAKER is the easy-going, self-effacing type. Nines are accepting, trusting and stable. They are usually grounded, supportive, and often creative, but can also be too willing to go along with others to keep the peace. They want everything to go smoothly and be without conflict, but they can also tend to be complacent and emotionally distant, simplifying problems and ignoring anything upsetting. They typically have problems with inertia and stubbornness. At their best: indomitable and all-embracing, they are able to bring people together and heal conflicts. (source)

According to, theses are the dynamics of Type 9.

I have the need to find union, accept others, and do the right thing. I genuinely open up and accept those around me which can form strong bonds

I have fear of separation, illusions or misconceptions of the friendly unions around me, and less accommodation. The separation that scares me can make me distant with others, ignoring the people and world around me.

Ask me how you would specifically want me to do something. I don't like expectations or pressure.
I love to listen and to find out ways to help you but I will never take advantage of you.
I can sometimes wander off in mid-sentence, but please continue listening until I'm finished.
Cut me some slack with making decisions. I want to think about all of the options.
There are never dumb questions.
Tell me when you like how I look. I'm not opposed to flattery.
Physical contact, like a hug, helps me open up with my own emotions.
I'm all for a good discussion but I probably can't handle confrontation. I might run away!
Let me know that you like something I did or said.
Be happy for me and whatever I've done or enjoyed in life.

Being non-judgmental and accepting
Caring for and being concerned about others
Being able to relax and have a good time
Knowing that most people enjoy my company
My ability to see many different sides of an issue and to be a good mediator
My heightened awareness of sensations and aesthetics
Being able to go with the flow and feel one with the universe

Being judged and misunderstood for being placid/indecisive
Being critical or myself for lacking initiative and discipline
Being too sensitive to criticism
Being confused about what I really want
Caring too much about what others will think of me
Not being listened to or taken seriously

Feel ignored and that their wants, opinions or feelings are unimportant
Tune out a lot especially when others argue
Are "good" children; deny anger or keep it to themselves

Are supportive, kind and warm
Are sometimes overly permissive or nondirective

Which one are you??

These kinds of test of fun in my opinion. Once you take these, get your best friend or significant other to take them too and see how compatible you are here. Jerry is a six. See how 9s and 6s get along here.

It's almost Friday! Enjoy the rest of your weeks!!


  1. I scored equally as a 9 and 2 :P

    1. You should get Sean to take it too and see how compatible you are. Because we all know that tests like these determine how our relationships work. Lol.
