RHETI


The Riso-Hudson Enneagram Type Indicator (RHETI) personality test is like a Meyers-Briggs (MBTI) personality test with the major difference being the "nine EPTs are rooted in three biologically based contexts (Instinctive 8-9-1, Feeling 2-3-4, and Thinking 5-6- 7). Jungian Type and MBTI Type are defined more generally. Their Jungian functions are not rooted in the Triad of three Human Instincts (Conservation, Relation, and Adaptation - according to Ichazo)."*

An old Air Force colleague (who knows me surprisingly well) suggested I take the RHETI. I scored Type 5, which didn't surprise me once I read the description:

Type Five


The Investigator


The perceptive, cerebral type. Fives are alert, insightful, and curious. They are able to concentrate and focus on developing complex ideas and skills. Independent, innovative, and inventive, they can also become preoccupied with their thoughts and imaginary constructs. They become detached, yet high-strung and intense. They typically have problems with eccentricity, nihilism, and isolation. At their Best: visionary pioneers, often ahead of their time, and able to see the world in an entirely new way.
