The Enneacards Test v.7 is based on scientifically validated research

David W. Fauvre, MA and Katherine Chernick-Fauvre, founders of Enneagram Explorations in 1996, have conducted ongoing research into the self-image and language use patterns of Enneagram Type for over fifteen years. This makes their Enneagram Tests the most accurate and empirically backed in the Enneagram field.

During this time, David and Katherine conducted thousands of Enneagram type interviews. Additionally they analyzed and collected over 3000 Enneastyle Questionnaires designed to elicit the self-image of each Enneagram Type and Instinctual Subtype. The initial research findings were published by Katherine in her best selling booklet, Enneastyle: The visual presentation & language inherent to Enneagram Type. The Enneastyle Questionnaire is the most accurate Enneagram Test every created. The test taker uses their own language to answer open ended questions like what is your greatest strength or use 5 adjectives to describe yourself to a stranger.

The Enneagram Type and Instinctual Subtype of each participant who filled out an Enneastyle Questionnaire was recorded. It quickly became apparent that regardless of gender, age, education, or even if English was a first language, that each Enneagram Type spoke in their own identifiable language. The implications of this discovery are staggering and go far beyond simply finding a way to make a better Enneagram Test. If we each use a specific lexicon set to describe ourselves, and this is based on our Enneagram Type, it suggests type is genetic and neurologically based.

After many years of analysis and individual interviews, Katherine became highly adept at predicting Enneagram and Instinctual Subtype based off of the words clusters found in each Enneastyle Questionnaire. Her accuracy is estimated at over 80% for each Enneagram Type or Instinctual Subtype. This is the highest accuracy of any Enneagram Test or Instinctual Subtypes Test ever developed.

The Enneastyle Questionnaire has been used in large financial institutions, including the Federal Reserve Bank, with major league sports teams, in high tech firms, by psychiatrists and psychologists, and by thousands of individuals.

In 2004, David oversaw the creation of a software program designed to test for word patterns in the Enneastyle Questionnaires. This custom software program, built for Enneagram Explorations, was based on the same computer algorithms used for data mining and to identify spam e-mail.

This special software was built by Dr. Michael Tsai, an MIT PhD computer programmer. Over the next two years, over 700 Enneastyle Questionnaires were analyzed revealing fascinating language use patterns by each Enneagram and Instinctual Subtype.

The results were nothing short of astounding. They revealed not only what Katherine had discovered in her clinical research, that each Enneagram Type and Instinctual Subtype describes themselves using identifiable word patterns as recognizable and unique as a thumbprint, but that the computer software could accurately predict Enneagram type up to 90% of the time.

This scientifically validated the language use patterns that had been revealed by analysis of the Enneastyle Questionnaire. This ongoing research has been the basis for The Enneacards Enneagram Test. The results of this scientific research has enabled the creation of highly accurate, easy to take and relatively short Enneagram Testing instrument.

To encourage people to feel at ease while taking The Enneacards Enneagram Test it was intentionally designed to look like a child's game. This was was done to avoid the complaints made about so many personality tests. That they are too long, tedious, confusing and often intimidating as they appear like college aptitude tests.

Additionally, the Enneacards Enneagram Test's unique configuration often also predicts Instinctual Subtype, wing, and the dominant Enneagram Type in each of the three Enneagram Centers: Head, Heart and Gut.
