TOPIC | Any MBTI or Enneagram Nerds?
I'm a fan of personality typing and would like to know yours. It's very interesting to me and can be used to help people understand themselves better. In general MBTI tests nature, while the enneagram tests more about nurture. Which one do you think is the most accurate?

I'm an INTJ, Enneagram 5w4.

I never heard of the enneagram test (gonna look it up right now!), but founding out I'm an INFJ has helped me understand myself so much better! I always felt out of place because I felt like I perceived the world differently, and turns out, I actually do :D But now I don't see it as a negative thing anymore ^^

Edit: Enneagram is 6w5! I personally feel like the MBTI is more accurate tho, but the enneagram seems pretty correct too~

I’m not quite a nerd about it, but I think the MBTI personality test thing is pretty cool. I’m not convinced that mine was entirely accurate, but the INTJ description did describe me better than anything else has my entire life... oh hey wait another INTJ! Hi there!

and I’ve never heard about this enneagram thingy might have to try it out

I love this sorta stuff, though I'll admit I'm not a fan of the mainstream ideas of it (or the personality tests you can take because they are never actually accurate, oof). But yeah, it can really help you understand why you are the way you are. It's been really helpful to me. :D

My understanding is that MBTI correlates to the way your brain processes information (i.e. cognitive functions, as they're actually called), whereas Enneagram focuses on your instinctual reactions to stress. It's a lot harder to find good info on Ennea, sadly. But basically: 2, 3, 4 are your reaction to shame; 5, 6, 7 are your reaction to fear; 8, 9, 1 are your reaction to anger. Everyone actually has three different number pairs, since we all feel shame, fear and anger! But you're still gonna have a "strongest" one, which is what the tests and stuff usually look for. But. It's really not useful to look at it like that tbh. Tritype for life.

So in brief...
Shame:
2 reacts to shame by appeasing others
3 reacts to shame by finding ways to improve themself in the future
4 reacts to shame by using their individuality as a shield
Fear:
5 reacts to fear by withdrawing into themselves
6 reacts to fear by seeking comfort and safety
Counterphobic 6 reacts to fear by facing it (finding comfort in removing the fear)
7 reacts to fear by distracting themselves from it
Anger:
8 reacts to anger by trying to control the situation
9 reacts to anger by avoiding or diffusing it
1 reacts to anger by referring to a strict moral code

Very oversimplified but that's the gist of it! But then there's like, also wings. Which make a big difference. Agh. I'm happy to explain more if anyone actually cares, aha.

As for which is the most accurate - well, they both measure completely different traits, so they can't really be directly compared. They both have their uses, and imo they're best used together!

Okay, nerding over. I'm an introverted ENFP (Yes! That exists! Which I didn't know until recently but it makes so much more sense than me being an INFP!) and 9w8 7w6 2w3. Yep, anger type first. And. w8. 8 is... really something. HMM.

Other misc personality stuff: Gryffinpuff, Chaotic Good, Knight of Breath, Green-Red, and my personality lines up really well with the behaviour of Eurasian otters. :D

Yes, I'm a true personality geek, I won't even deny it

@Maevepanda Hello! When I first took the MBTI test and got INTJ, I similarly felt like I finally understood myself and that being an introvert wasn't a bad thing. I like both MBTI and Enneagram equally, but I favor the MBTI as well.

@Verditer Hello fellow INTJ! I've heard the INTJ typing is quite rare, but I've found a number individuals of the same type through my time online.

@Charias Thanks for the information! I would love to hear more about tritypes, as I tried once to find mine but I found a bit of conflicting information about it. I didn't know a introverted ENFP was a thing! I've only known my extra extroverted ENFP sister. (Quite the duo, INTJ and ENFP siblings.) I'm also into different personality tests as well. I'm a Slytherclaw, Horned Serpent, and True Neutral. And daemons! I need to find out which one I align with!

I've never really been able to decide on an MBTI type- I understand the types and functions fairly well and I enjoy personality theory but none of the types fit right. I relate most to INTP and ISFP but I've also been given INTJ (though that was mostly based on how I wouldn't budge @ my stance on that person eating fermented blueberries), INFP, ISTP... And I don't even want to mention the bias some of the community has towards/against certain types [emoji=eliminate] I understand enneagram less but I like it more. I can't decide on a type for that either but iirc it doesn't have to stay the same..? I feel like I might be a 5 but I don't know much beyond that. I've gotten stuff like that fairly consistently, but I also relate to 7, 9 and 4 Stuff like this is really interesting to me but I've never really found a system that I like, rip I did try the uhh. [url=https://similarminds.com/sloan.html]The Big 5 test[/url] thing I got RCOEI on that, which would apparently make me an INTJ? I don't know I don't put a lot of stock into MBTI because it could change depending on your occupation (for example you might make more logic-based decisions in a STEM job, which skews the T/F dichotomy), but everyone's open to their own opinions on this stuff. They're just theories [emoji=familiar heart] ohhh man harry potter and dnd, I think I'm a Slytherclaw (a Ravenclaw with Slytherin tendencies..? maybe) and either True Neutral or Chaotic Neutral, I kinda flip flop between the two skdvkdfgj

I never really was into MBTI, but last time I did the test, I was an INFP and 6w5.

Also, I'm a Slytherin, Bard of Time and Chaotic Neutral.

Mmh yeah, I was first introduced to tritypes a year or so back and they work so much better! Finding good info is really hard though. I learned everything I know from other people - I think online communities are probably the best resource if you want to learn more. Whereas those website that try to make you buy into tests or whatever should be avoided like the plague, because. Well, they'll just try to squeeze cash out of you and aren't usually very accurate anyway. :P

I'm happy to share more things I've learned, but it's such a big subject I have no idea where to start! Do you have any specific questions about it?

RE: the introverted ENFP thing, it's because-- well, MBTI is a lot more complex than 95% of people realise, aha. You don't get your MBTI just by being like "well I'm introverted and intuitive and think a lot and I'm not judgemental so I'm must be INTP lol", which is how I think a lot of people go about it. And by that logic it would make no sense to be an introvert ENFP!

But it's actually all based on Cognitive Functions, and everyone has one function of each type: one Sensing, one iNtuiting, one Feeling, one Thinking. Out of them, you have one Introverted perceptive function, one Extroverted perceptive function, one Introverted judging function and one Extroverted judging function. The four letters just serve to indicate what orders your particular functions go in!

So for me, I'm ENFP because my Cognitive Functions are:

Dominant: Extroverted iNtuiting, AKA Ne (which is not inherently a social Cognitive Function; it deals with the exploration and generation of new ideas, which can be sourced from anywhere, not just other people. Ne is like... boundless enthusiasm for new ideas, possibilities and inspiration, but lacks focus.)

Auxiliary: Introverted Feeling, AKA Fi (which is a very socially exhausting function, hence why I act in a way most people would consider "introverted"; it's actually really common for ENFPs to be social introverts or ambiverts! Fi deals with personal morals, and tends to be individualistic but emotional.)

Tertiary: Extroverted Thinking, AKA Te (the classic scientific logic function. Values objective facts, quickly adjusts to new information but is prone to taking things at face value and integrating new information too quickly, without properly verifying it.)

Inferior: Introverted Sensing, AKA Si (memory function! Deals with the formation of vivid emotional memories, which are called upon to help decide on present actions. Nostalgic and habitual, but people with a strong Si don't deal well with change)

So, like. Despite my Dominant function being Extroverted, I still behave in an Introverted way sometimes because my Auxiliary Fi gets tired out quickly in social situations, and my Dominant Ne seeks and is energised by new ideas which don't necessarily need to come from social interaction. (Socialisation is loads of fun though! I just need quiet time afterwards so my Fi can recover~) :D

AND. DAEMONS. Heck, don't even get me started on daemons. I will talk for hours about daemons. xD It was actually trying to find my daemon form that first got me into personality typing! There's this really neat little niche community of animal nerds who just. Well we huddle in our little corner of the internet and talk about animal behaviour and symbolism, then interpret it as metaphors for human personalities and roles in life. It's really fun and interesting, actually! Been a hobby of mine for years now. We also talk to ourselves but I don't open with that because it scares people off, aha.
