Test finished!

you chose BZ - your Enneagram type is FIVE.


"I need to understand the world"



Observers have a need for knowledge and are introverted, curious, analytical,
and insightful.



How to Get Along with Me




  • Be independent, not clingy.


  • Speak in a straightforward and brief manner.


  • I need time alone to process my feelings and thoughts.


  • Remember that If I seem aloof, distant, or arrogant, it may be that
    I am feeling uncomfortable.


  • Make me feel welcome, but not too intensely, or I might doubt your
    sincerity.


  • If I become irritated when I have to repeat things, it may be because
    it was such an effort to get my thoughts out in the first place.


  • don't come on like a bulldozer.


  • Help me to avoid my pet peeves: big parties, other people's loud music,
    overdone emotions, and intrusions on my privacy.



What I Like About Being a Five




  • standing back and viewing life objectively


  • coming to a thorough understanding; perceiving causes and effects


  • my sense of integrity: doing what I think is right and not being influenced
    by social pressure


  • not being caught up in material possessions and status


  • being calm in a crisis



What's Hard About Being a Five




  • being slow to put my knowledge and insights out in the world


  • feeling bad when I act defensive or like a know-it-all


  • being pressured to be with people when I don't want to be


  • watching others with better social skills, but less intelligence or
    technical skill, do better professionally



Fives as Children Often




  • spend a lot of time alone reading, making collections, and so on


  • have a few special friends rather than many


  • are very bright and curious and do well in school


  • have independent minds and often question their parents and teachers


  • watch events from a detached point of view, gathering information


  • assume a poker face in order not to look afraid


  • are sensitive; avoid interpersonal conflict


  • feel intruded upon and controlled and/or ignored and neglected



Fives as Parents





  • are often kind, perceptive, and devoted


  • are sometimes authoritarian and demanding


  • may expect more intellectual achievement than is developmentally appropriate


  • may be intolerant of their children expressing strong emotions
