Goals for the weekend: explore the self.

Required elements for Friday:

  • The paper
    (title page not necessary)
  • Sketch, outline, prewrite, etc
  • Research log (3 sources filled out. answer questions on the 1st and last page.)
  • 2 workshop evaluations
    (the ones about your paper, filled out by others)

    Your weekend blog assignment:

  • The enneagram personality test. The enneagram is a system used to describe the particulars of your personality. It’s like astrology in that you have one type that doesn’t change throughout your life, but unlike astrology in that there’s no easy way to figure out your type other than to diagnose yourself. That’s where tests and other things come in. Over the weekend I want you to take one or more of these tests to help determine which type you are.

    We’re concerned with the “enneagram tests” (left column, third grouping.) Any of the tests listed are okay except the “variant test” which is something different. Once you’ve taken the test, I want you to read about the types that you scored the highest in (the top 3, lets say.) You can read about the different types easily on 9types.com. (Click on the sentences under “type descriptions.”)

    Once you think you’ve identified yourself, I want you to write a fun and detailed blog post in which you summarize the traits of your particular type, and then discuss how it relates to you, if you believe it, things you do that are indicative of your type, etc. If you quote material you read about on sites, please be sure to include a link to the sourced material. Also, if you look, when you take the test you can copy the HTML into your post, which is “fun.”

    I’d like you to get these up by Sunday morning this weekend so you can start reading each others and commenting on them. It will make class more productive on Monday if you’re familiar with your classmates types/posts.

    Here’s my enneagram post from last semester. I am a type 4, which means I’m sad.
