    Oh dear lord, I was always, always the 1w9 hellbent on changing the world and achieving perfection.

    I remember teacher reports from elementary saying things like "gets unreasonably frustrated when does not meet own very high standards".

    And I remember a fourth grade teacher I had calling me an "old soul." Of course, she could have just meant that I was practically anal retentive.

    I don't know if it's from birth, but I know that I've had a very strong sense of self since a very, very young age. I remember being in kindergarten, wondering what superhero should be my favorite. I had my preferences, but some of those were popular ones. I couldn't just be ordinary, could I? :P

    There is no agreed upon answer for this. Personally, I think we're born with certain tendencies and that environment influences which one becomes dominant and the associated wing (or tritype - if you believe in that).

    Yes, I think we are born with certain tendancies too. But is really formed in early childhood developments I think. I mean, 1 year old babies probably don't have enneatypes. I thnk it really arises between 3 and 5, when the child become able to perceive the world through a basic proposition and interpret his environment.

    I think I've probably been a 6 since I was a child - though I may have been more 4 or 5-ish as a teenager, but I think 4 particularly holds a lot of teenage preoccupations.

    But I think MBTI type is more to do with innate/inborn personality, and Enneagram is more about nurture.

    Default Yes, type is present from birth

    It was first believed type and instinct was from family environment. However, no pattern has ever been found. Further, having done this for 20+ years and having typed babies (yes they have micro movements, a temperament, and a personality from the get go, ask any mother) it strongly appears that Type and Instinct are genetic and present at birth.
