Are you wondering whether you are a type 2? Here is another free in-depth test made specifically for Enneagram type 2. You can treat it as an additional Enneagram test or a simple checklist of Type 2 traits.
Check all the statements that resonate with you. If you check less than 50 statements, it’s improbable that you are a type 2. Having checked only some statements doesn’t automatically make you a type 2; any type may relate to some of these statements. But having checked many statements (70 or more) makes it more likely that you belong to this Enneagram type.
You can also refer to the Enneagram Type 2 profile if you have any doubts.
