    *Sorry if this topic has already been posted*

    I came across this website: http://www.ptypes.com/

    Basically, it describes various personality styles that look loosely related to both enneagram and MBTI. (Moreso MBTI, since it's based on Jungian psychology and the four modern temperaments (Idealist, Traditionalist, Rationalist and Hedonist). It's like enneagram in that it focuses on the healthy and unhealthy versions of each type, and lists common virtues and vices associated with each type.

    The types are as follows:
    IDEALISTS: (Most Likely NF's)
    Conscienscious- ENFJ
    Vigilant- ENFP
    Sensitive- INFJ
    Dramatic- INFP

    TRADITIONALISTS: (Most Likely SJ's)
    Liesurely- ESTJ
    Serious- ISTJ
    Self-Sacrificing- ESFJ
    Devoted- ISFJ

    RATIONALISTS: (Most likely NT's)
    Aggressive- ENTJ
    Idiosyncratic- INTJ
    Inventive- ENTP
    Solitary- INTP

    HEDONISTS: (Most likely SP's)
    Self-Confident- ESTP
    Adventurous-ISTP
    Mercurial- ESFP
    Exuberant- ISFP

    It was interesting to note that when I looked at each of the descriptions of the personaltiy styles, I identified with some I didn't expect to.
    People who assess which personality style fits them usually rank them from most like them to least. This kind of brings to light the functions used that are less common for Idealists.

    My ranking:
    1) Sensitive
    2) Devoted
    3) Idiosyncratic
    4) Serious

    So, for all of you.....I'm interested to see which ones you identify with and what you think of this system.
    If anything, it's an intriguing alternative.

    You know, I honestly think that that is a fairly
    good and systematic way to loosely describe
    these types.


    Mine:

    1.) Sensitive.

    2.) Devoted.

    3.) Conscientious.

    4.) Dramatic.

    Sounds like a very blatant Keirsey rip-off.

    Yeah, I noticed that, too. It's like a looser version of Kiersey, though, since it's not quite as specific.

    Just noticed this page ^^^
    The purpose of PTypes is to take various apsects of psychology (Enneagram, Kiersey, Personality Disorders, and even Astrological types).

    The INFJ Type is sopposedly the "Sensitive" type (makes sense). It's also based on Ennegram 4 w. 5, and is associated with Avoidant perosnality disorder.

    Good point. There's a quiz, but you have to buy it, unfortunately :(
    Although, a lot of people disregard MBTI quizzes, and research on their own anyway. It just depends on your self-assessment preferences I guess.

    5.) Sensitive

    It's just rewritten MBTI stuff. Nevertheless, it gives further insight to each temperment.

    Out of all of the models they could have ripped off, they chose Kiersey?

    Wow, way to aim for the bottom Ptypes.
