    Default enneagram mbti and thoughts on compatability

    before I begin I am not saying that either the MBTI or ideas of Enneagram determin compatablity or tell you all about a person. Obviously they don't.

    Still, I think there is some merit in *considering* what they say.

    That being said; I've heard a lot of people say that ENTJs and INFPs would go very well together.

    But, according to this JavaScript Tool for Exploring Typological Space chart many ENTJs are enneagram 8 and many INFPs are enneagram 4. But, according to this Enneagram site/powerpoint "no couple is more passionate than the four/eight combination-nor is any couple more likely to deteriorate into verbal and physical abuse and various kinds of personal retaliation for escalating conflicts."

    No couple is more likely?

    Me thinks there is a compatablity descrepency here if the MBTI says that ENTJ and INFP are best together.

    Lol... A web site said that. Ignore it... ENTJs aren't abusive... No one is when they're mature. ENTJs and INFPs go well together, but I'm an 8 as well, so I'd go well along with them and I imagine we would strengthen each other.

    You're just over analyzing romance I think.

    And you aren't anything but an INFP.

    There have been a million websites that I've read that were totally ridiculous... This is the internet. Some idiot is gonna get an idea and publish it. Don't worry about it. ENTJ + INFP FTW.

    I've read Kirksey's Please Understand Me II...but I'm under the impression that nearly (not *all* but almost) all information on this forum regarding personality is gathered from websites or from subjective experiences...I thought that was how this...system guaged things.

    Lol, as for the bit about overthinking romance. I won't deny what I know to be true

    what is FTW?

    All of this type-based matching business is overanalyzing romance.


    So if it's a personal situation you're worried about not working, discard the theory and go with your feelings. If it's mere speculation as to why there's a discrepancy, the discrepancy exists simply because the Enneagram and MBTI are two ways to look at (almost) the same phenomenon--and individuals' interpretations of the information leads to many more than two ways; they're not always going to line up.

    FWT = For the win.

    INFP / ENTJ is great fun! I have a relationship like this and we would talk for hours. We seemed to come to similar conclusions, but by different means, and he (the INFP) was oozing with passion, which was amazing. It is defiantly worth trying out. I would imagine that INFP / ENFJ would be good too so that you are gooey enough for each other. ( I mean like a nice set of gummy bears, or something of the sort.)

    Then, can i get you to sign a form that specifically states ENTP and ESTJ is just fine and can be a match made in heaven?
    everyone uses every function about evenly. take NE for example. if there are those who don't use it much, then why are there such massive amounts of people constantly flowing through Wallmart with 20 items or less?

    There are ENTJ enneagram 1's as well.
