What Personality Type Are You?

Personality is arguably the largest factor when it comes to determining who you are. It is a construct of being, a method of coping in and with the world and the best part is that we all have one that can be narrowed down to a ‘type’.

The Enneagram is one of the most accurate and credible personality systems and is used by many who study personality and who are simply curious. The quest to find your personality (below) is based on the Enneagram and its astounding accuracy.
