    Type 4 under stress - fear of being defective thus indulge in fantasy

    Which one are you under deep stress?
    But doesn't 4 go to 2 under stress?

    yes but it's really a mixing where your main type is more pronounced.

    For instance, I'm type 5, type 7 is my disintegratin path. At first I generally will cope by analyzing everything. If that doesn't work, I'll numbly seek out sensations. Just doing anything just to feel something.

    So for a 4 under stress, I'd estimate that coping is first done with escaping into fantasy and if that doesn't work, start to hate and manipulate others.

    My knowledge of the enneagram is at the intermediate level and this part still confuses me. Will post more when I get the info.



    nvm, I'm still confused about stress and security points... Yes, 4 goes to 2 when stressed. I'm not sure if this applies when feeling insecure.

    Except, under deep stress, 2's act like 8's and 4's act like 2's.

    2 under stress = become infuriated that others don't appreciate their care and concern, so instead of being subtly codependent and people-pleasing, they become overtly intrusive and/or rejecting.

    4 under stress = 4's want to attract a rescuer and so act elusive and coy, but when they start to panic about being alone, they become people-pleasers like a 2 and make themselves indispensable so as not to be abandoned.

    Ive relooked at enneagram an 5w4 seems to fit, but I'm still studying it to be more confident in what the types are. I find tests sort of irritating because some of the questions are vague enough to make me guess.

    EDIT: Reading about En5 makes a lot of sense. I'll continue to read more of them and see what I come up with. So far, the Entype 5 seems to be a function that is really for dominant Ti, Ni, or even Si. This makes ITPs, INJs, and maybe sometimes ISJs 5s.

    Type Correlations


    Here's a good link with info. Check out the chart at the bottom.


    It says that enneagram explains the motivation while MBTI describes how we function in the world.

    So with that in mind, the enneagram and MBTI are completely different. While there are statistically significant correlations, it doesn't mean that one is a translation for another.

    my gf is INFJ, but type 2w1.

    I've decided I'm an equal mix of 5 and 4 with some 1 in there to mortar up the cracks. Also some 9 on off days.

    Basically a 5w4 if you need a definite one.

    The one that says INFJs are 1s 4s and 5s makes a lot of sense. I find that I thought I was a 9 on my lazy days (Which were a loooot of them and there will be. I wish I could keep up this momentum so I can get things done)
