    enneagram + ancient chinese astrology = ???

    okay so this is kind of random but

    i've noticed the potential for a correlation between the enneagram personality typology and the nine star ki astrology system. what are these? don't even worry about that yet, i'll get to it soon. first, i must ask you to do something for me. for science!

    i'd like people to take the enneagram test, then come back and post their result in this thread, along with their date of birth.

    the 9 star ki system is something that i've gotten sidetracked with during my chinese medicine studies, and it's basically a system that categorizes you as one of nine types based on a combination of yin/yang and five element (fire, earth, metal, water, wood) theory through your birth date (which has something to do with the alignment of the cosmos or whatever). there are more intricacies to it that i'm not too well versed in, but as i've mentioned it's basically an ancient chinese astrology kind of deal.

    the enneagram also has 9 types (more information about enneagram can be found quoted below from the last thread about it), so maybe you can see what i'm getting at here. i'm curious to see if it's possible, via the 9 star ki system, to establish a connection between date of birth and enneagram type.

    i'll keep my theories to myself for now to avoid skewing the results, and if i notice any connections i'll bring it up once the thread starts slowing down. it's also completely possible that i won't find any link whatsoever, because there isn't one at all (or because you guys just aren't self aware enough to accurately answer the questions in the test, which is not something i don't see coming)

    Take the "Classical enneagram test" here to find out which you are:
    http://www.eclecticenergies.com/enneagram/test.php

    My result was a type 9 with a 1 wing. This means that my personality type is type 9 (the Peacemaker), but I also take on traits from the type 1 (the Reformer) group.

    Once you have your type, read about it on this website (which has significantly better and more detailed descriptions than the above website with the test):
    http://www.enneagraminstitute.com/de...p#.Ueeq8m03nn8





    Not only does it give you a very accurate description of your personality, but also tells you which direction you should strive to move towards to further yourself (for me, I should move towards point 3; that is, I should aim to be more of an achiever, because laziness and refusal to act is my biggest downfall) towards perfection/enlightenment, and what direction you should avoid moving towards, to avoid stress, leading to depression and insanity (i should move away from point 6; that is, away from being too much of a loyalist - because I already put too much energy into trying to keep everyone happy).

    Also given is "more depth by level", which describes changes in your personality according to how healthy your mental state is. More info on levels here: http://www.enneagraminstitute.com/De...p#.Ueeub203nn8

    They've thrown in some more specific suggestions for personal development for each type also: http://www.enneagraminstitute.com/pe...p#.UeevUW03nn9

    And for the spiritually inclined, they've also added the detail of describing what enlightenment will be for each personality type, and provides suggestions as to meditative techniques that would be ideal for each type. My technique is "self-remembering"... which happens to be the technique I had already settled on before I even found out about the enneagram. More info on that here: http://www.enneagraminstitute.com/sp...p#.UeeuoG03nn8


    Fascinating stuff, most accurate and detailed personality typology I've ever encountered.

    So take your pick. Birthday: 10th of September 1992

    Is the dd/mm/yy vs mm/dd/yy thing going to confusing?

    good point on the date formats; the way you've done it (actually writing the month name) is probably the best way for people to avoid confusion there. and thanks for contributing. to science!

    It says I'm 9w1, but 5w4 is about 0.7 points behind it if that means anything.

    tl;dr is this anything like MBTI assessment tool?

    EDIT: Not really, I find the MBTI to be more accurate

    6w5 with 5w6 being a point behind. Why is this test so freaking accurate?
