INFJ 7's are so lucky. I am an ENFP 6w7 sp/so and the anxiety can be debilitating. I always wondered why I wasn't as carefree and confident as many other ENFPs. At times, I've wondered if I had an anxiety disorder, because I am so paranoid about my safety and health, but I realize that it is just my dominant self-preservationist side. I am extremely responsible when it comes the safety of the people around me, but it is not because I am mature, but rather because I panic and I'd rather be safe than sorry. INFJ 7 sounds so perfect, and I really wish I were a 7. However, I don't think being a 6 is that difficult. It can't be as hard as being a 1 or a 4
I know an INFJ enneagram 7...have dated her...It's insanely fun, sparks, energies, enthusiasm, did I say fun?...
So much outward energy and synergy together too! Damn I wish she were available.
It's true she doesn't expect perfection...just understanding her she is satisfied with that. And going out and doing fun things together...mixing it up...it's paradoxical actually...she likes to do lots of fun things with me...as long as she's with me...but alone she wouldn't do them. She feels more comfortable around me than on her own around others. (I guess because an ENTP can pretty much handle any situation with others)
I just started to get into the Enneagram. I think it is a very interesting system that when coupled with MBTI provides a great personality overview. The Enneagram descriptions seem to focus on the negative aspects of each type (perhaps motivation for self-improvement?) but at least we can read that and uncover our darkest depths. I found the descriptions of of the unhealthy versions of my two potential types (4 and 9) to be very chilling....because I knew I could sink to those levels....though I haven't yet.
After taking some tests and reading all the descriptions I am confident that I am a 9 wing 1. The general neutrality and fuzziness of type nine resonated with me. Often I feel as if I am a blank canvas being painted by all the colorful people I surround myself with. I take on the energy of the people around me and I run with that... In exchange for the jolts of personality that other people give me, I feel that I can be there for them when they need me. I have always been the most emotionally stable of my friends and they always tell me how great I am to rely on. I like the feeling of knowing that I can be there for the people I love.
I just need to work on developing my own personality and my self. I do too often slip into a going through the motions state of passivity...just being content with life swirling around me.
