Yeah, I almost never do these, but this one is so spot on for me.

You chose BZ - your Enneagram type is FIVE.

"I need to understand the world"

Observers have a need for knowledge and are introverted, curious, analytical,
and insightful.

How to Get Along with Me -
Be independent, not clingy.
Speak in a straightforward and brief manner.
I need time alone to process my feelings and thoughts.
Remember that If I seem aloof, distant, or arrogant, it may be that
I am feeling uncomfortable.
Make me feel welcome, but not too intensely, or I might doubt your sincerity.
If I become irritated when I have to repeat things, it may be because
it was such an effort to get my thoughts out in the first place.
don't come on like a bulldozer.
Help me to avoid my pet peeves: big parties, other people's loud music,
overdone emotions, and intrusions on my privacy.

What I Like About Being a Five -

standing back and viewing life objectively,
coming to a thorough understanding; perceiving causes and effects,
my sense of integrity: doing what I think is right and not being influenced
by social pressure,
not being caught up in material possessions and status, being calm in a crisis

What's Hard About Being a Five -
being slow to put my knowledge and insights out in the world,
feeling bad when I act defensive or like a know-it-all,
being pressured to be with people when I don't want to be,
watching others with better social skills, but less intelligence or
technical skill, do better professionally
