The RHETI Sampler’s 36 questions are only a part of the full,
scientifically validated 144-question Riso-Hudson Enneagram Type
Indicator (RHETI, Version 2.5) personality inventory.
The RHETI Sampler, like the complete RHETI itself, is a forced-choice psychological test which requires you to chose one statement in each pair of statements that describes you best. For each pair of statements, select the statement that applies to you MOST OF YOUR LIFE. Do not over-analyze the questions, or try to think of "exceptions to the rule." Be spontaneous and choose the statement that comes closest to the way you have been most of the time, most of your life.
Occasionally there will be questions that ask you to make a close call between two choices. This is because the RHETI is trying to reveal areas where you have similar behaviors or attitudes. You may skip questions that really do not apply to you — but do not skip questions just because they are hard to answer. If a question is very close and you can’t decide which statement applies to you best, you can come back to it after you have completed the Sampler.
The RHETI Sampler usually takes about 10
minutes to complete. (The complete 144 question RHETI takes about 40 minutes
to complete.) At the end of the Sampler, click on the Score Test
button, and wait for the computer to generate a personality profile of your
scores. If you have answered honestly and accurately, your basic personality
type should be one of the top three scores. To confirm which type you might
be, read the type descriptions in the Riso-Hudson best-selling books,
The Wisdom of the Enneagram and Personality Types — the two
most complete and in-depth books in the Enneagram field.
