This quiz must be based on the enneagram I think - I'm a 5 on that as well. Hat tip to Natty - who is also a 5.

You Are 5: The Investigator

You're independent - and a logical analytical thinker.

You love learning and ideas... and know things no one else does.

Bored by small talk, you refuse to participate in boring conversations.

You are open minded. A visionary. You understand the world and may change it.

At Your Best: You are sharp, inventive, and creative. You have the skills to lead the world.

At Your Worst: You are reclusive, weird, and a bit paranoid.

Your Fixation: Greed

Your Primary Fear: Being useless or incompetent

Your Primary Desire: Being competent and needed

Other Number 5's: Bill Gates, John Lennon, Kurt Cobain, Bjork, and Stephen Hawking.

Hmmm, yes, I came out (as I often do) as a Five. But I'm not, I'm a Three!
Enneagram tests are funny things. I think they probably work best (perhaps for some Enneagram numbers more than others) if you take them before you know who and what you are.
Learning I was a Three several years ago made me much more insular and unsure of myself in many ways, because it held up a mirror I was reluctant to see. So I adapted my behaviour accordingly.
I could spot the answers I should be giving in this test to make myself 'come out right' but they're no longer true for me. That's not to say I'm no longer a Three, but I have genuinely different priorities.
Anyway, too much information probably, but you hit on my hobby-horse - I teach the Enneagram!
