I was listening to an inspirational RISE podcast the other day with Rachel Hollis (An American author and motivational speaker) while creating some designs and having my tea time. She was speaking to Stacey Flowers, another motivational speaker about really getting to know our true selves and what their number was on the Enneagram Personality Test. I have never heard of the Enneagram test? Have you? If you have, where have I been?
After listening to them, I was curious enough to know what number was, so I took the test. But guys, why does it really matter what the answers say? Why do I need this validation? Do I need a test to tell me why I think and do the things I do? Maybe I do. Mostly I was just curious to know how accurate it could be.
Before I tell you my number, here is a link that you can click to take the test for yourself. It is free to do, although for more in-depth information they will ask for payment.
