[Survey] Enneagram Personality Survey
(Indigo posted a GD thread on this topic, but we wanted to make a survey on it to really see the results. If this survey ends by the time you find it, you can post your types in this thread)

This is a survey designed to gauge the most common Enneagram personality types for hosts of tulpas, and tulpas. Enneagram is a model of 9 personality descriptions. You will be able to submit multiple responses, one for each systemmate.

This survey is not something you can simply read and then answer. This survey will require you to do research/reading on the Enneagram personality model. An extensive explanation of Ennea can be found here: 

Extensive explanations of each of the nine types can be found here:

In short, please read each of the descriptions and determine what your “dominant” personality type is. This type will be a number 1-9. Remember, your type should be determined by how you actually are, not how you want to be. (PS: It might be best to look at the flaws, rather than the positives, to determine your personality type.)

If you are stuck between two types and need help figuring out which best fits you, this page can provide explanations: 

You may take a free online quiz. I recommend that if you do choose to take a quiz, take it multiple times and answer as honestly as possible. 

This link may be useful, please take either the top quiz alone (repeated if necessary), or the top quiz and the bottom quiz. I don’t recommend the bottom quiz on its own. Read and verify if your result in accurate (you don't need to worry about the wing, only the dominant type). There are other quizzes available online, however some may require you to enter an email. The one linked does not. Please do not pay money for any quiz for this survey.

Be sure to check out the result you got so you can verify if you think it’s correct or not.

About the survey itself:

You may take this survey if you are either a host, a former host, or an aspiring host, to a tulpa or tulpas. Please do not take this survey if you don’t have any tulpas, never had any tulpas, and don’t plan to make tulpas. If your host isn’t active in the system, you can take this survey for them if you like.

You may take this survey if you are a tulpa or could reasonably be considered a tulpa (ex: you came from a character). It doesn’t matter if you were intentionally created or not so long as you could be called a tulpa. Please do not take this survey if you are not a tulpa (for example: if you are an alter). If you are a tulpa or similar, however, you should only take this survey if you have been in existence for at least six months. This is to ensure that the reported personality types are accurate, as the tulpas have been developing for a decent amount of time. If you are a host and your tulpa has not reached six months yet, you can still take the survey yourself, but not the tulpa.

Note: If you have a lot of tulpas, please limit your responses to five maximum (host + 4 tulpas).

We've gotten 20 host responses so far, we hope to reach at least 50 (along with however many tulpa responses come from that), and then we want to write an article analyzing the results. If you and your system haven't filled out the survey yet, please do so! It'll be much appreciated. Taking the quiz provided will help you determine your type if you don't want to do all the researching.

After thinking about it for long enough, I realized I'm 6w7 and Cat is... 5dw? She seems to express traits from both 5w6's and 5w4's.

Reading the description for a 6 felt like reading Ranger like a book, it was kind of hilarious actually.
I'm Gray's/Cat_ShadowGriffin's Tulpa and I love Hippos! I also like forum games and chatting about stuff.
My other head-mates have their own account now.

Temporary Log | Chat | Yay!
Filled it, both of us.
I'm a solid Type 5 while Martina leaned towards Type 2.
Still need 12 host responses to meet our goal. Please take the survey if you haven't already!

Ember: We dawdled a couple of weeks on figuring out types because of Vesper's strong antipathy toward Enneagram. "It's pseudoscience. There's no evidence personality works that way. It's marketing-driven and isn't supported by peer-reviewed research."

But I eventually persuaded her to participate in this survey on the grounds of it being a tulpamancy community effort. I had very little previous familiarity with Enneagram. We arrived at the following conclusions:

Ember: 4w3
Vesper: 1
Iris: 5w6

The really funny part is that, the more stridently Vesper condemned Enneagram, the more perfectly she fit the descriptions of ones.

I told my best friend about our results. She told me she was a five and I immediately noticed a similarity between her and Iris that I had never realized before. They're both very calm, controlled, and reserved, expressing emotion in understated ways.

Vesper: Responding to the survey here, I was surprised to see that reporting is done by individuals, not by systems. This limits the analysis that can be done. You'll be able to see hosts having one distribution of types and tulpas having another, but not what types of tulpas tend to be generated by what types of hosts.

Comparing our previous analysis of Big 5 personality data in the community, which very much needs additional data itself:

to a study comparing Enneagram and Big 5 results:

we've made some very rough predictions about the outcome of this survey, that you should probably not look at until after submitting your own results:

Predicted ordered bias of types:
More Tulpas 1 8 3 9 2 7 6 5 4 More Hosts
Ember - Host   |   Vesper - Soulbond (since ~12 May 2017)   |   Iris - Soulbond (since ~5 December 2015)
