The Free Personality Test 36 questions are only a part of a full, scientifically validated 144-question Riso-Hudson Enneagram Type Indicator (RHETI, Version 2.5) personality inventory. Short personality quizzes such as this cannot guarantee that your basic personality type will be indicated, although your type will most likely be one of the top three scores in this free quiz.
Instructions for the FREE Test
This is a forced-choice psychological test which requires you to chose one statement in each pair of statements that describes you best. For each pair of statements, select the statement that applies to you MOST. Do not over-analyze the questions, or try to think of exceptions. In short, don't complicate things and go with your heart spontaneously. After all, it's only for fun !
There will be questions where the answer is a split decision - do not skip questions just because they are hard to answer. If a question is very close and you can't decide which statement applies most - come back to it.
The test takes about 10 minutes to complete. If you have answered honestly and accurately, your basic personality type should be one of the top scores.
Please remember that this short, fun personality test is NOT scientifically validated. We cannot guarantee the accuracy of the results of the personality analysis produced by this short personality quiz - only that it can help you begin your journey of self-discovery!
