the Romantic
Test finished!
you chose BY - your Enneagram type is FOUR.


"I am unique"



Romantics have sensitive feelings and are warm and perceptive.



How to Get Along with Me



  • Give me plenty of compliments. They mean a lot to me.

  • Be a supportive friend or partner. Help me to learn to love and value
    myself.

  • Respect me for my special gifts of intuition and vision.

  • Though I don't always want to be cheered up when I'm feeling melancholy,
    I sometimes like to have someone lighten me up a little.

  • Don't tell me I'm too sensitive or that I'm overreacting!

    Well for starters there are only two questions, which presents two problems. First, the answers you're supposed to choose from are fairly long and detailed and the test is clearly depending on your own self knowledge to allow you to pick the right answer. Which means that the test probably does a very good job of telling you that you are what you believe you are. As opposed to a longer test that could at least attempt to ask questions which seem unrelated and try to find out what you think in an indirect manner. Secondly, since there are only two questions there is no grey area at all. I was kind of torn between B and C on the first question before going with B. I don't know which way i would have come up if there had been a number of questions to determine the results, but i almost certainly would have fallen somewhere in the middle.

    But on the plus side, it's just two questions so it only takes about twenty seconds to take :)
