    MBTI =/= enneagram =/= socionics :lol:
    I don't know which type I am in any of these... although I'm half sure that I'm an ENTP at least. I know that I favor enneagram types 7, 3 and 9... but I have no idea which one dominates. Supposedly 7 and 3 are rather ENTP like, and 9 rather INFP like, It correlates somewhat, but they are supposed to be separate. We need some S types to come and point out the differences between them all I think.

    But seriously, FWIW, I'm an Ennegram 8.
    While there are many websites that discuss 8's, I found one in particular,
    that was pretty accurate.
    My problem with MBTI profiles is they are too superficial.

    By the way, good for you that you help others to be the best they can be.
    Are you a teacher or a personal coach?
    I think the problem is that they are actually too nice. If you look into the big five and SLOAN types, you'll notice that they are rather negative and point out the worst case scenarios. I think this works better, as it encourages you to balance yourself out a bit rather than favor your specific type and encourage typical behaviors exhibited.

    I see way too many people using type as a weapon against others.
    Seriously, it's a ridiculous thread that runs through the entire fabric of this forum.
    Just look at some of the subject titles.
    I agree with you about seeking balance.
    Absolutely.

    Actually I'm still in school but I do my best to help anyone who wants me. Occasionally I have to watch out for people just wanting me to do things for them, but in most cases people just want a helping hand and I've got two

    I did notice that all of the types seem to be really awesome people, but I don;t think that is necessarily bad. Sometimes just being told you're a good person can help you become one.

    i'm an enfp type 7 but i think it's pretty common for both enfp/entp.

    i can definitely tell the difference between the mbti types that share the same enneagram and the ones that don't....the enfp/entps that are type 7 are way sillier and take things less seriously than the ones that are type 4 or 8 or 9.

    I am an isfp type 7 and am very happily silly.
    I'm a little teapot, short and stout. Here is my handle and here is my spout. Every time I steam up, I give a shout. Just tip me over and pour me out.

    It probably depends on what kind of person you are. If you run into a type description that describes the person you really want to become, you'll probably start idealizing yourself. It can help, as you try to live up to the best aspects of your type (which probably comes easy, as you are that type).

    Maybe the problem is just us... or maybe we're just misinterpreting some people's intentions when they start to complain about the flaws of any particular type.
