Enneagram Type Indicator

It is a scientifically validated, mandatory-choice personality test consisting of 144 statement pairs. Completing the test is approximately Takes 40 minutes. RHETI® Version 2. 5 has been independently scientifically validated. However, RHETI® goes beyond just pinpointing your basic type, generating a complete personality profile covering all nine types. This gives you a unique portrait that Indicates the relative strengths and weaknesses of the nine types within your overall personality. RHETI® results are available in PDF format and contain your full-spectrum profile scores for all nine types, as well as extended type descriptions for the top three scores (each over 2, 500 words). These type descriptions have been revised and updated to provide the most comprehensive summary of types available. They all agree that the Enneagram, as represented by the Enneagram Institute, is a measure of personality traits more than any other More efficient measures include DiSC and Myers-Briggs.
The Instinctive Variation Questionnaire (IVQ v2. 0) is the first online test to measure their three basic instinctual intelligences: self-preservation, socialization, and sexual (attraction) instincts. This is a mandatory choice psychometric test with 37 sets of 3 statements. In each set of statements, you choose one that is most like you and another that is least like you. The test will then determine your "instinct stack, " or three instincts ordered from most developed to least developed. The entire IVQ process should take no more than 15 minutes. IVQ results are emailed to you in PDF format and include your scores for all three instincts, as well as general information about the instinct variant. Instincts can be explored separately from Enneagram types, and knowledge of your primary type will not affect your IVQ score. If you already know and have entered your primary Enneagram type at the end of the IVQ, you will receive a brief bonus text on the instinctual variants of that particular type. If you are still exploring your primary Enneagram types, you may wish to take the Riso-Hudson Enneagram Type Indicator (RHETI v2. 5).
