This was the last one I took, which involved choosing pictures or icons that were most pleasing to you. This seems to be the one test which is entirely divergent from most of the others, and probably the least acurate. Yeah... I'm not really seeing the 3, honestly.
It's interesting that one of my psychotherapists seems to have believed I was the ultimate 7, but I think I am more of an 8, since I've never had some of the addictions that 7s tend to be absorbed with, like drinking and drugs, and although I've jokingly refered to myself as a "sex addict," I'm not truly a sex addict either. Also, I would describe myself as more of a "realist" than an "optimist." I do however, have a wide variety of interests and enjoy sensual pleasures, such as food, massages, and of course, BDSM. I'm pleasure seeking, but in a pretty controlled, responsible sort of way, rather than an abandoned manner. In addition, it often helps to determine how you respond in stress and in comfort, as an 8 will often act out the unhealthy aspects of a 5 in stress, and go to 2 in security, while a seven will go to 1 in stress, and 5 in security.
The trouble with self reports is that people often have an unconscious need to see themselves differently than they truly are, for a variety of reasons. Here, I could go off on a tangent about questions of test validity and design, and the importance of using a well designed test as opposed to the disastrous consequences of relying upon poorly designed tests for important information. This is probably why most official and clinical tests are subject to constant statistical analysis, reviews, and modification. The only effective way of examining a person's personality is by looking at the history of their actions. As the old saying goes, actions speak louder than words. Of course, I don't hold much stock in the enneagram anyway.
