By Ian Isaiah Ding|Enneagram Type 5

There are 9 points in the Enneagram which symbolizes the 9 different personality types, and this post will feature the 16 signs that you could be an Enneagram Type 5!

Known for being logical, secretive and extremely observant, you may be a Enneagram Type 5 if you identify with most of the following:

  1. You really dislike small talk
  2. Unless you have no choice (a.k.a “bobian”), then you will just share your knowledge and keep all of your personal and private life out of the conversation…
  3. People have called you antisocial before and you think that it is okay
  4. You are a really private person and you detest people entering into your personal private space
  5. …and when people do, your internal alarms ring inside of your head and you will shut off everything that you’re doing (phone, laptop, etc) just to maintain your privacy and keep them out
  6. You compartmentalize everything in the different boxes that you keep in your mind: 1 box for work, 1 box for family, 1 box for friends, 1 box for relatives, 1 box for this, 1 box for that… you have 1 box for almost everything
  7. You have a strong love and desire for knowledge – you simply love to read and learn
  8. You are very logical and often leave your emotions out when making decisions
  9. You will only attend to your emotions when you are dead sure you’re all alone by yourself
  10. You prefer facts and statistics and data over opinions and feelings and thoughts
  11. You don’t really fancy dressing up and you have no idea how to do so either because as long as your essential body parts are covered you are good-to-go
  12. You can make do without everything and anything but you cannot do without your knowledge
  13. You are quiet and tend to distance yourself from the crowds, preferring to observe from afar
  14. You constantly seek knowledge, or the source(s) of knowledge
  15. You see things and pick up details that other people don’t, even though it is just so obvious (but it’s only obvious to you…)
  16. You are easy to appease – a book and lots of private space – and you can survive a month (maybe more…)
  17. You are perfectly fine being all by yourself at a party (ugh parties – Type 5s really dislike social meetings), and when invited to join in the fun, you’ll jokingly brush them aside with a “Nah, I’m just auditing.”
  18. Your friends often go to you with difficult problems or complex situations and you are able to logically think of a solution for them
