Why Enneagram tests aren't reliable?

We prefer coaching and empowering our clients with the knowledge of all 9 Types instead of using cold tests to type.

And we have a few good reasons for this.

Enneagram tests have their place (they seem like a quick and easy way to determine a type), but in our 15+ years of working with many of the top tests, we’ve found even the best ones to be 50-60% accurate.

Enneagram Tests:

  • At the time of being issued, the client is usually not educated enough to know if the test is accurate; it can take a lot more study for a client to realize their test report was wrong. So, claims of 90%+ accuracy are doubtful.
  • Enneagram tests are unlike other psychometric or profiling tests that have undergone rigorous development.
  • The tests tend to pitch their questions and weighting at moderate to lower levels of expression of each type. A high-expressing type appears to be very different from its lower-expression counterpart. The tests are even less accurate if you are currently dipping or high.
  • Most, if not nearly all, tests exclude the subtle second Type 6 expression, counterphobic, which often tests as a Type 8. In most Enneagram coach courses, at least 1 “Type 8” finds out with an AHA epiphany they are a CP6.
  • The 9 Types are not based on behavior, “what we do,” but on the hidden deeper reason for the behavior, “why we do what we do.” Tests focus on behavior and are understandably unable to test for deeper reasons for what we do. To discover our type, a certain degree of self-awareness is needed.
  • Wings and subtypes add another subtle layer to the mix, never mind that our type’s degree of expression fluctuates from low to moderate to high relatively easily.


Why the Enneagram helps life coaching.

When we can personalize our coaching, we can serve at higher levels. There’s nothing like the Enneagram to give us immediate insight into the deeper motivations of our clients, their potential blindspots and a map for their personality’s growth (which many practitioners fail to use).
