A SelectSmart.com Selector by Chad Hoolihan
This is a personality test to determine your Enneagram type. This is not a very in-depth test, but it should give you a fairly accurate idea of what your type is. There are a number of books on the subject, though I draw my information primarily from the writings of Don Richard Riso and Russ Hudson.
