For months, maybe even years, I had put off taking the Enneagram test.
Everyone and their mother was talking about it, sharing their types and wings.
Originally, it felt like a fad I wasn’t all that interested in. I mean, haven’t we all taken 500 of these types of tests already? They’re interesting for a day and then we forget about our results completely and move on with our lives.
Don’t get me wrong, I love personality tests just like any other Buzzfeed reading millennial, but the rebel in me didn’t want to succumb to the pressure of taking some long test that was going to tell me something I already knew.
But, people kept talking about how genuinely helpful it was for them and how the information of their bests and worsts selves was eye-opening, so I eventually caved and took the test.
