what it says in the title, gaiz.
let's take two prototypes: INTP 5w4, and INFP 4w5. how are these two going to differ from INTP 4w5 and INFP 5w4? an INTP 4 is probably gonna look pretty INFPish, and the INFP 5 is probably gonna look more INTPish. what're going to be the differences, the shades of subtlety between the two?
i think it'd be cool to compile some type descriptions for the sake of curiosity. it'd be awesome to have all... oh, 1728 types resulting from MBTI/enneagram with instinct and wing variants, but starting with just a handful would work. if you feel like contributing your type or other types you feel like you know well, i'll add them to a big list in this first post.
i'm going to throw down a few to begin with, but feel more than welcome to tell me if you think they're off. i've kept them all consistent because that was easier for me, but i'd love to have people of those types explain things in their own words.
INFP 1w9 sx
The Mystic Hero: the sexual INFP 1w9 combined grace, innocence and purity, with strength, conviction and virile gut center energy to form the ultimate hero type. these types are the paladins and knights for justice are trully the joan of arcs of their sphere of influence and can summon tremendous amounts of strength and charisma when passionately voicing their convictions. unlike most charismatic leaders however, the energy of the INFP 1w9 is much more feminine and ethereal. this bizarre combination can often lead to the INFP 1w9 being viewed as a sort of angellic figure or mythical incarnation due to it's apparent flawlessness and balance of masculine and feminine energies.
Individualistic but at the same time very much about helping people, giving advice and social rules.

ENFJ 3w4 sp
Alternately warm-embracing and icy-distant, a social leader but individualist. A nonchalant overachiever who keeps inside worries very hidden. Concerned with being impressive and attaining luxury, but never only as a facade.
Social loner, I like people but sometimes I want to live in my head. Someone told me that I was taught "not to feel" so I have a bland demeanor. I have a very analytical, emotional nature.
