    if you know both your enneagram type and your MBTI type, please post them here. i'm curious about how these two link up, and in the case of major deviations (such as an ISFP being a type 1 for example) WHY they'd deviate.

    INTP's i'd guess are mostly 5's

    INFJs, 4's maybe?

    the other types I have no idea.

    Enneagram type thread ---> http://forums.infjs.com/showthread.php?t=113



    From The Enneagram Blogspot:

    1 - ESTJ, ISTJ, ISFJ, INTJ (also ESFJ, ENTJ, ENFJ, INFJ)

    2 - ESFJ, ISFJ, ESFP, ENFJ, ENFP (also INFP)

    3 - ENTJ, ENFJ (also ESTJ, ESFJ, INTJ)

    4 - INFJ, INFP (also ISFP, ENFP)

    8 - ESTJ, ENTJ, INTJ (also ESTP, ENTP)

    9 - ISFP, INFP (also ISFJ, ENFP)


    But I've seen other type correlations ... and plenty of people who don't fit. I think it's weird they didn't include ENTP in type 3.

    oh thanks for that! i thought INFJs would've also tended to be 9's, given their desire for social harmony. and it is quite weird when people don't fit into a predictable MBTI box based on their enneagram type or vice versa, given that the enneagram describes their basic motivations. if motivations aren't what predict their order of cognitive function use, then what, ya know? or maybe people aren't entirely aware of their motivations, or maybe cognitive function preferences aren't as straightforward as we've been led to believe, maybe there's more to it than simple preferences - maybe it's genetic, or expressed differently based on your hobbies or family structure, or whatever.

    There are a few type 9 INFJs on this forum,
    though some of them may be INFPs, ISFPs, and ISFJs mistyping themselves as INFJs ... or INFJs mistyping themselves as 9s.


    I wonder if INFJs are less likely to be 9s because the Ni + Fe combo gives them more motivation to find answers. Nines seem to be a bit in-betweeny. Maybe that would bother most INFJs?

    I think VH's perspective on the two systems was quite insightful, so I'm posting what he said here. Also, I pretty much agree with him.

    As far as INFJ's go, the most common I have seen is 9's, 5's, 4's and 1's, in that order.

    ETA: I am a 1w2

    I have scored 8 on this before. Thought it didn't match me, or ENFP, at all, but now I see at least a couple of sources include 8 as one of the possible ENFP correlations. Hmmmm. Gotta be the extroversion + Te.

    I got curious and sifted through the correlations to find the types that made it onto each list ... to discover which mbti types are most representative of the enneagram types:


    Most representative of 1 - ESTJ, ISTJ

    Most representative of 2 - ESFJ, ESFP, ENFJ, ENFP

    Most representative of 3 - ENTJ

    Most representative of 4
    - INFJ, INFP

    Most representative of 5 - INTJ, INTP, ISTJ

    Most representative of 6 - ISFJ

    Most representative of 7 - ESTP, ENFP

    Most representative of 8 - ESTJ, ENTJ

    Most representative of 9 - ISFP, INFP



    ENTP disappeared! :m033:

    Many ENTPs are 7s. You can add it to the list. :wink:

    infj 5w4 though im working along the path of integration and have been more accepting of my 8ish qualities as of recently to achieve this, so i may not come off as a typical 5.

    Ah yes, this thread.

    Honestly, I think correlations happen due to misunderstanding and mistyping. When I think back to the first time I tested in MBTI, I remember trying to figure out whether I made decisions using my feelings or my thoughts. But really it's about being wired for value-based judgment or logic-based judgment. I'm definitely the latter, and feeling vs. thinking was never the problem to begin with.

    The Enneagram? Well, I'm not going to pretend I know, but I sense it's more complex than the descriptions make it seem.
