Lately I’ve had this weird urge to write or express myself about something, but I having a hard time pinpointing it. Maybe it’s because I’ve been reading so many articles on Medium so I feel like I should write. Or maybe I’ve got something on my mind but I don’t know how to express it. Yeah I’ve never really have been expressive verbally. I mean when was the last time I’ve ever posted anything on my blog besides music, dogs, and random “art” photos I’ve taken.
I recently took an Enneagram test, albeit I’m pretty skeptical when it comes to “personality” tests because how can you categorize a person after they answer 36 questions. Does those 36 question reveal that much about them? I guess that’s why they have the paid version with more questions. Enneagram test, Myers-Briggs, whatever.. I always thought they were just horoscopes for people who knew better to believe in horoscopes but didn’t know better to know that these are horoscopes for people who knew better. Did I get that right? My head hurts.
But I took the test anyways because I’m pretty clueless on what kind of person I think I really am. I know I’m not cocky or assertive. If anything I’m passive and soft. So after clicking on my mouse for about 10 mins I got my results…

What does that even mean? I am destined to be a detective or some type of journalist? Wait what?
But rather than engage directly with activities that might bolster their confidence, Fives “take a step back” into their minds where they feel more capable. Their belief is that from the safety of their minds they will eventually figure out how to do things—and one day rejoin the world.
I usually don’t like horoscopes or personality tests but this one kind of hit the nail on the head.
