    It doesn't make much sense to me that certain countries would have a higher percentage of some types than others - or at least not to this magnitude.

    I would guess that some of the INTP 5s may actually be 6s. Probably some of the INFJs, too. 6 seems to be both a somewhat negative and somewhat vague description, which could be driving people away, particularly INxx's.

    I'm surprised that 6s are so low in the overall population too, actually. I was under the impression that they were common. I don't know that much about enneagram, though.

    It's quite interesting I suppose. Maybe it's just the cultural expectation that differs altering certain results. Enneagram seems like a more flexible system measuring different levels of common human drives. It would be understandable if people would confuse what they themselves go for over what the community expects them to go for. A greater margin for error.

    But maybe the question was just why so many in e 4's and 5's

    They would have to correlate - mathematically. I'm wondering if there is a pattern of a particular enneagram type who is attracted to the forum - that is independent of MBTI type (not sure if that's clear). I am sort of thinking as I go here.

    I'm surprised too that there are more 9's and 1's then 7's

    It doesn't feeeel that way.

    The obvious answers:

    - The internet is natural habitat for introverts. ESTJs are suppose to be very common, but they are like endangered species when it comes to online forums like these. So with that said, we can assume certain types are just more likely than other types to congregate in places like these for variety of reasons (namely the withdrawn types) .
    - There is also the issue of mistyping of course.

    If we attach certain words to certain types, then we gonna get mistypes. I believe type 3, 6, and 9 are in search of identity as well. For example, type 3 would be a type likely in search of identity. Actually, that's the crux of the type once you think about it. If an e3 looks outside of themselves for worth, and that is tied to their identity, then stripping away this "mask," this external standard, would reveal an underlying hollowness, eventually leading to existential emo questions of "Who am I?" - All identity related stuff.

    Personally, I've been looking into e6 or e9 to see whether I am deluding myself. There are actually strong overlappings of e4 cliques in those other types.

    Oops. Made a mistake in some of those numbers. Will fix it here:

    I would have thought 4 > 9 > 5... otherwise, not surprising to me. Although I wouldn't be surprised if conflict averse 9s opted out sooner or later.

    Perhaps it would be more likely for countries to have differing makeup of enneatype, than with MBTI - after all it is influenced by environment, and culture could be a part of this.

    I mean just look at the 3 types for France - it pretty much fits all the French stereotypes. Actually, same with the US and their stereotypes, too. Although, Germany doesn't have any 1s in their main types, and that just seems wrong.

    But yes, I would take such claims with a grain of salt.

    Yeah, I was going to say this but I seem to always be the one doubting such things.

    BTW just to answer this question:

    I think people are becoming more knowledgeable about the 6 type and realising that they were mistyped due to a lack of understanding. Perhaps equally, people are less inclined to idealise 4 and 5 traits. And maybe 6s often mistype as 4s or 5s...
