Enneagram Test Results

Interesting. I took that test everyone else on my friends list seems to be taking... what was interesting was not what my top scoring type was... but that I scored almost as high on six others. I really wish they had a mean score and average deviation and things like that listed, I'm curious to see if that's normal or if I'm really just that broad-ranging in personality.

My "winning" score:

However, look at the score distribution:

type - score
5 - 17
1 - 16
2 - 16
6 - 16
8 - 15
3 - 14
9 - 14
4 - 11
7 - 11

So for everyone else that took it, I ask: is that normal, or am I unusually spread-out?

Here are the descriptions for my top types:
5 17 Fives are basically at some level estranged from the rest of the world which forces them to build there own unique world perspective. They like to analyze things and make sense of them (that is their anchor), this makes them great inventors and philosophers. The immense inner world of fives can cause them to lose touch or interest in reality.
1 16 Ones live with an overbearing internal critic that never rests. They want things to be perfect based on what they think perfect is (which can be good or bad). They see other people as slackers, and other people see them as goodie goodies, zealots, or uptight.
2 16 Twos are defined by their empathy of other people. They are uniquely gifted at tuning in on the feelings of others. This makes them great networkers. They feed on their connection to others, love of friends and family. However being too caught up with other people can drain them, and cause them to lose track of their own personal well being.
6 16 Sixes are defined by anxiety. They are gifted in their ability to see the dark and light sides of the world (and of people and situations around them). This insight into possible outcomes makes them masterful planners. However since they are never sure what will prevail they are always on edge and cling to predictable structures/systems for peace of mind.
8 15 Eights are natural leaders. They are straight forward, direct, large personalities, that are unlikely to back down to adversity. They have a talent for motivating others. They have a strong sense of justice and are often protectors of the weak. However, they also have short fuses and can become domineering tyrants.
3 14 Threes derive self worth from success in the external world. They are highly skilled at adapting themselves in whatever way necessary to achieve success. This external success driven image often comes at a price of having a personal identity and they may lose site of who they really are.
9 14 Nines are open minded optimists. They are able to see everyones point of view, and have a natural desire for making peace. Consequently, they are skilled mediators. They often live by the 'go along to get along' creed. However their openness to other people can cause them to lose site of themselves and their own happiness.
