Enneagram Tritype® Test
Frequently Asked Questions
This test is based on 22 studies conducted over 25 years. The test has been programmed to capture the types that are difficult to type and have unknowingly mistyped.
This test uses 8 different testing methods to help you determine your most likely Enneagram Type, Tritype® and Instinctual Stacking. This not only scores your top Type, but it also scores patterns and gives you a way to review your actual choices.
In addition, you may receive a special notification that suggests there is a high probability that you may be the elusive, hard to type, Type 6, and on rare occasions Type 9.
At the end of the test you are able to review your answers, which can be used to share with an Enneagram coach and also helps you remember your answers and the order in which you chose them.
Sixes are difficult to type, and rarely choose type 6 as their type. This test is smart enough to recognize patterns, that are typically only used by sixes. Sixes have a specific pattern when taking Enneagram tests, and this test is programmed to alert the test taker that they are a Type 6 due to these patterns.
This test is based on the patterns of tens of thousands of test takers on both of Katherine's Enneacards testing instruments since 2002, which has proven to provide more accurate results.
Two or more of your top choices in the Enneacards test and the statement test did not match. The more differences you have, the greater the possibility that you not only have 6 in your Tritype®, but lead with Type 6. If you have more than 2 differences, this test is alerting the test taker that there is a high probability that they lead with the Type 6.
There are two Enneaspreads. During the test you are given sets of 3 cards to rank, from most relatable to least relatable, what is true for you most of the time, most of your life and not who you could be, should be or have become.
The Enneaspreads are important because it scores your choices every time you were given a set of 3 cards.
The first Enneaspread, the Analagous Enneaspread, scores your top choice each time you were served a set of 3 cards that had similarities.
The second Enneaspread, the Tritype® Enneaspread, scores your top choices in each center: head (5,6,7), heart (2,3,4 ) and gut (8,9,1).
Yes, you will receive a copy of your test results via email which can be shared. There are also social media share links on the test results screen.
