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.
Instructions for the free RHETI
Short personality quizzes such as the RHETI Sampler cannot guarantee that
your basic personality type will be indicated, although your type will most
likely be one of the top three scores in this free quiz.
We recommend that you read the type descriptions at the end of this test,
and in Riso-Hudson Enneagram books, to help you identify your basic
personality type. If you would like to take the full 144-question
personality inventory, it is available for a small fee at the Enneagram
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.
Thanks! And please remember that unlike the full RHETI, this short,
