Enneagram Dimensions

Would you like to discover your enneagram type and subtype arena?

Here are two tests--the first, to help you discover your type and the second, to pinpoint your subtype arena. (The second test is a new addition; it's the one published in my first book, The Positive Enneagram. Both tests require Microsoft Excel.


"What's My Type?"

This test is designed to help you determine your enneagram type.It contains 180 statements that you rate in order to determine your type.

  • Click HERE to take the test
  • When you open the Excel file, you'll see a spreadsheet with two columns. The first column, RATING, is blank. The second column has a list of statements (e.g., "My desire to think positive can sometimes be like an addiction.")
  • In the RATING column, please rate how well you think each statement describes you:

    • 0 = not at all
    • 1 = somewhat
    • 2 = pretty well
    • 3 = very well

    You can view the results by clicking on the ENNEAGRAM TEST RESULTS TAB on the left bottom of the spreadsheet and interpret them using the following as a guide:

    • 45 - 60 = Strong indicator for type
    • 30 - 44 = Possible indicator for type
    • 15 - 29 = Weak indicator for type
    •   0 - 14 = Very weak indicator for type

    If you're completely unfamiliar with the enneagram, click here for a brief description of each point of view.

    If your results seem unclear, try to look not just at your total score, but at your entire pattern of responses. You can see which statements go with each point of view by scrolling over to the right on the spreadsheet containing the test.


    "What's My Subtype?"

    This test is designed to focus on the three subtype arenas: self-preservation, sexual, and social. It focuses on 36 situations, each of which has three possible responses which you rate to determine the arena to which you are most strongly drawn.


  • Click HERE to take the test.
  • Next to each statement, there's a blank RATING column.
  • In the RATING column, please rate how well you think each statement describes you:

  • 0 = not at all
  • 1 = somewhat
  • 2 = pretty well
  • 3 = very well

    You can view the results by clicking on the ENNEAGRAM TEST RESULTS TAB on the left bottom of the spreadsheet and interpret them using the following as a guide:


  • 82 - 108 = Strong indicator for subtype arena
  • 56 - 82 = Possible indicator for subtype arena
  • 29 - 55 = Weak indicator for subtype arena
  •   0 - 28 = Very weak indicator for subtype arena
