This is an anonymous survey about your Enneagram type and feelings around food. Please answer with the first response that seems most appropriate for you and are what you are currently doing (not what you wish you were doing or used to be do). Please do not try to figure out how to respond in response to your Enneagram type, but rather answer what feels like the best answer for you.
Thank you for taking the time to fill this out. The information will be used to develop information on how personality and type may impact certain choices in health and wellness.
It is important that you know which Enneagram number you most associate with. If you would like to learn more about the Enneagram and what number you might be like, please visit:
