Enneagram subtype test comparing type 1 subtypes sp 1, sx 1, so 1

Type 1 Instinctual Subtypes

Subtype Comparison Test


This test uses a forced-choice approach comparing the three instinctual subtypes of a type (i.e., sp, sx, and so). You must choose one of the statements in each set of statements.

The statements may or may not be representative of a given subtype. They are meant to offer a contrast between the three subtypes being compared.

The test result displays a score for each subtype being compared with the highest score indicating which of the three subtypes you prefer based on your responses.

If you would like to take a test using the variant stacking approach to the Enneagram instincts instead of the subtype approach then click here.


The result of this Enneagram test is not definitive but best used as a starting point for you to further explore and confirm the subtype indentified by this test. Try on the result for fit but hold it loosely. Feel free to take the test more than once trying different choices.


Choose the answer that best applies to you as you've been most of your life.

Would you like to compare the three subtypes of type 1 (sp 1, sx 1, so 1)?
