The Enneagram: The Coolest Personality Test
Confession: I've always loved personality tests. Yes, yes, you read that right: personality test. But not the tests of the genre, which member of One Direction is your soul mate ? When I heard about this one on Instagram I immediately did some research to find it. And now I'm freaking out!It's a real test, from Psychologies magazine. And when I say I'm freaking out, I'm talking about the result. I identify with it so much. Don't get me wrong, I normally take the side of the sceptics. But in this case, based on a single question ( what are you running away from most? ), we're served up a pretty baffling profile of truth (in my case, at the very least). A profile that identifies our strengths and limitations.
"According to the enneagram, there are nine types of personalities. To find yours: a single question. The method affirms in fact that our personality is built on a fundamental fear rooted in childhood. An apparent simplicity that conceals reality of many nuances. Each of the profiles of the enneagram coexists in us"
Of course, I am not a professional able to judge the validity of anything. What I can tell you on the other hand is that if the objective was to initiate a certain introspection in me, the bet is successful. By revealing to me aspects that I recognize in my person, it led me to wonder about a certain number of things. And that's never bad, especially at the beginning of the year!
Because asking the right questions, to reframe your life choices and thus gain in well-being, is completely in line with the #slow philosophy. Because sometimes, we can come across THE very simple thing that makes it impossible for us to lead the life we would like, the one that makes us work 50 hours a week, or that we don't experience any general satisfaction, etc.
And finally, we can slowly start a process of change :) :) :)
So, to choose between: failure, invasion, immobility, imperfection, banality, weakness, loneliness, betrayal or conflict...
The simplest: What do you run away from the most?
The most complete: Enneagram test
For my part: I avoid banality and I am a 4 (obviously)
