The Quest for Self Discovery

As a perpetual soul searcher I periodically make use of online personality tests as a tool to enlightenment. This week I did the Rheti Sampler Personality test on the Enneagram Institute website. It told me a I had a basic type 7 with a wing of 6 - enthusiast (entertainer) type which means I am extroverted, optimistic, versatile, spontaneous, constantly seeking new and exciting experiences - which all sounds good to me - until we get to the bits about problems with impatience and impulsiveness, fear of being bored, in a perpetual state of motion but best of all prone to flamboyant exaggeration (who me?)! Bails roared when I showed her, especially revelling in all my (in her opinion) spot on personality blips.
