Personality...Personality...

I took the Enneagram Personality test tonight. {You can take it here. Once you take your test, visit this site to read the description of your type.}

I am a One: The Reformer

I was pretty amazed at some of the descriptions of my "type" because they are actually pretty right-on:
  • Although Ones have a strong sense of purpose, they also typically feel that they have to justify their actions to themselves, and often to others as well. This orientation causes Ones to spend a lot of time thinking about the consequences of their actions, as well as about how to keep from acting contrary to their convictions. Because of this, Ones often persuade themselves that they are “head” types, rationalists who proceed only on logic and objective truth. But, the real picture is somewhat different: Ones are actually activists who are searching for an acceptable rationale for what they feel they must do. They are people of instinct and passion who use convictions and judgments to control and direct themselves and their actions. History is full of Ones who have left comfortable lives to do something extraordinary because they felt that something higher was calling them.

I kept reading through and flashing to conversations I've had with Katie or McGill...laughing at how well they know me and have helped to shape me in to a better version of myself.

What number are you?
Do you think it's a pretty accurate assessment?
