    Default 2w3>5w4 or 5w4>2w3 in tritype?

    I bought The Wisdom of the Enneagram and I scored 59 for Type Two and 56 for Type Five on the individual tests. The thing is, for most of my life I've been commended more for my intelligence than my compassion. I read the chapters for both and they seem to describe me rather well, however I'm not sure which one is better suited to describe me. I've assessed myself on the MBTI as ENTP and 5w4 seems to fit better with that than 2w3 which fits someone like my mother better who is an ESFJ. I'm just concerned about self reporting bias in the tests and if they can really accurately gauge your type or if it really has to come down to self assessment in all cases like I realized had to be done with the MBTI. If I had to give an answer myself I'd say that my tritype would be 5w4>2w3.

    ENTPs 5 are possible but very rare (most ENTPs are 7w8) also an ENTP 2 is extremely rare, are you sure you are not an ESFJ, they share the same functions.

    It was my thought that ENFP, being Fi, was less likely to be concerned with others. I'm most certainly concerned with how others feel. My stances are ones of reaching common ground, not defending an entrenched stance.

    I've considered ESFJ but I feel Ti is more of a supporting function or at the very least tertiary for me. I think intuition is my dominant function, so perhaps INFJ? I'm not sure how easily the intuition and sensing functions can be confused but they are fairly similar.

    http://theenneagram.blogspot.com/2007/09/type-2.html

    Lists ENFP under More Common, no mention of ENTP anywhere. Perhaps ENFP is the correct answer. It certainly would make more sense.

    According to http://cognitivequiz.com/quiz.html

    Your Cognitive Functions:
    Extroverted Thinking (Te) ||||||||||||||||||||||||||| 12.85
    Extroverted Intuition (Ne) |||||||||||||||||||||||||| 12.23
    Introverted Thinking (Ti) ||||||||||||||||||||| 9.615
    Introverted Intuition (Ni) ||||||||||||||||||| 8.89
    Extroverted Feeling (Fe) ||||||||||||||||||| 8.75
    Extroverted Sensation (Se) ||||||||||||||||||| 8.57
    Introverted Sensation (Si) ||||||||||||||||||| 8.54
    Introverted Feeling (Fi) || -0.21

    Your Extroverted Thinking (Te) is very developed.
    Your Extroverted Intuition (Ne) is moderate.
    Your Introverted Intuition (Ni) is moderate.
    Your Extroverted Sensation (Se) is moderate.
    Your Introverted Sensation (Si) is moderate.
    Your Introverted Thinking (Ti) is moderate.
    Your Extroverted Feeling (Fe) is moderate.
    Your Introverted Feeling (Fi) is poorly developed.

    Based on your cognitive functions, your type is most likely:
    Most Likely: ENTJ
    or Second Possibility: ENTP
    or Third Possibility: INTP


    Your cognitive functions are, in order of development:
    Te - Ne - Ti - Ni - Fe - Se - Si - Fi

    Considering the extremely underdeveloped nature of Fi, I'd say it has to be ENTP.

    Unless it's ENFP with a preference for Fe.

    That quiz is absolutely horrible, particularly for the Fi questions. I'm strongly Fi-dominant and still managed to get ENTJ-INTJ-ISTP on that quiz. I wouldn't trust it at all if I were you.

    And Fi-users definitely care about other people, I don't know where you got the idea that they don't because it's really not true.
