It is more than a profile of traits and behaviours, as it delves deeper into the motivations, defences and fears that lie in the often-unconscious area of our personality.

Working with your Type empowers you to take responsibility for your behaviours and growth through a greater understanding of why you act and react the way you do.
  • Motivation, Behaviour, Psychodynamics

  • Blindspots, Strengths and Challenges
    Discover your natural strengths which arise from your internal worldview or perspective. This section helps you tap into and appreciate your Enneagram Type's strengths and positive aspects. When harnessed healthily and balanced, these strengths will support your well-being, goals and relationships. No development journey should ignore weaknesses.
  • Centers of Expression
    The Centers of Expression relate to how we show up in the world and how we are likely to be perceived by others. There are three Centers of Expression: Thinking, Feeling and Acting. Exploring the Centers helps you to understand how you process external stimuli, make decisions, and express yourself in relationships. This section identifies your dominant Center and those less prominently expressed, illuminating your primary life strategies.
  • Triadic Center Styles
    There is a particular way in which you engage with your feelings, actions and thoughts, which is flavoured by your Enneagram Profile. You may be most aware of this when you are triggered, confused or when you realise that your gut says one thing, your head another, and your heart something else. The combination of these three gives your personality a different way of expression. Observing and becoming aware of each Center's energy flow can benefit your development and growth.
  • 27 Subtypes
    When your dominant Instinct merges with your core Enneagram Type, the two together is known as your Subtype.

    Wing Influence refers to the Enneagram Types adjacent to your core Type, known as your "Wings". While you typically engage both Wings, one is often more dominant for most people. This section details how each Wing can shape your personality and behaviour.
  • Self-Awareness and Integration
    This section reveals your level of integration, indicating the degree to which you're living on 'autopilot' or in a state of self-awareness. For many people, discovering their Enneagram Type is a turning point, as they see for the first time how their Ego has been limiting them and how disconnected they may be from their true Essence. The path of Integrative with the Enneagram is a journey back to Essence, escaping the limitations of personality and connecting to a more unlimited, liberated self.

This section furnishes you with tailored advice on your communication style, offering prompt guidelines to refine, adjust, and strategize your approach to providing feedback to people of known types.
  • Conflict and Triggers
    We all respond to conflict differently and have different triggers that induce conflict. By understanding your response to conflict and potential triggers, you can develop your unique conflict resolution strategies. Once you become aware of your unhelpful and destructive patterns, rather than reacting blindly to triggers, you can begin working towards a more grounded, intentional response to these situations.

Frequently asked questions

Our assessment is backed by extensive research and is constantly updated with the latest insights from psychology, mindfulness and neuroscience. You can trust that our full report and results are valid, accurate and reliable. Our psychometry experts and data scientists have spent +13 years perfecting our assessment, ensuring that it is not only the most accurate test (+95%) but also user-friendly and accessible to everyone. You don’t have to take our word for it — take the word of the American Journal of Psychiatry.

We do not allow the iEQ9 to be used as part of the recruitment process. The Enneagram does not measure a person's competence or capability. We believe any Enneagram type can be successful in any role. Once the successful candidate has been identified, the Enneagram is brilliant in supporting their development.

While the Enneagram test can provide insight into an individual's personality and work style, it should not be used in the hiring decisions. It is important to consider a range of factors, including skills, experience, and cultural fit.

Yes, understanding your Enneagram type can help you to identify your leadership style and areas for growth. It can also improve your ability to lead and communicate with team members who have different Enneagram types.

Since its release in 2011, over 450,000 people have taken the iEQ9 and it's been updated to version 22. Using sophisticated statistical analysis, artificial intelligence, machine learning as well as human experts in psychometry and cognitive scientists; to assure the most up-to-date accuracy and scientific validity.

The iEQ9 Enneagram, compared to other personality tests like the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), Strengths Finder, or the Big Five Factors Test, provides a more holistic and dynamic view of personality. Rather than merely classifying traits or strengths, it delves into the underlying motivations and fears shaping behaviours, offering practical paths for personal growth and development. Unlike these other models which largely focus on fixed traits or strengths, the Enneagram is rooted in spiritual and psychological teachings, making it predictive and adaptable in complex interpersonal situations. Thus, while other systems have their benefits, the iEQ9 Enneagram's comprehensive approach offers a richer understanding of personality and its evolution over time.

In a nutshell, other personality models often focus merely on surface traits and strengths, neglecting the underlying motivations and fears that shape behaviours. They lack frameworks for personal growth, ignore weaknesses and areas for development, and fail to highlight blind spots, biases, and habits. Additionally, they don't fully comprehend the dynamic interaction of strengths across different situations and relationships.

Like all self-report questionnaires, there is an element of subjectivity involved in respondent results. To ensure that results are as reliable as possible, the Integrative Enneagram Questionnaire has built in reliability measures relating to consistency, honesty and time. Client feedback is that the iEQ9 is a revolutionary assessment tool which is very reliable and highly accurate. Integrative regularly reviews questionnaire items and continues to improve accuracy.
