Apparently I'm a 9W8… ??

Following a bizarre series of links (looking for a website for a coffee shop in Redlands CA, would you believe) I ended up at an Enneagram test! According to the site, ‘The Enneagram is a system which divides all human behavior into nine personality divisions’, so there you go! It’s sort of old-school Myers Briggs, and it’s always fascinating to do these things – largely because the results are based on what you’ve actually typed in, rather than some slightly less reliable method like looking at the entrails of a sheep, or attempting to interpret light beams emitted a couple of million years ago…

anyway, here’s my Enneagram thingies –

no idea if this means I’m a completely rubbish human being, or quite a good one, and it’s all dependent on my not being utterly deluded about the answers to the questions. While I obviously tried to answer what I would actually do rather than what I think a groovy person would do, there’s always the chance that I’m blissfully unselfaware… all interesting stuff though! do the test yourself at
