    Default How does something like ADHD affect type

    I have been typed as a 5w6 so/sx 5-2-8, ENTP. I find it disconcerting that while my "core" traits seem very "fivish," I don't seem to fit the profile in some significant ways.

    I am comfortable being social to the point where I don't mind drawing attention to myself, even to the point where I have acted on stage, given speeches, and I even taught public school for two years. I am an absolute curiosity/knowledge junkie, I have done a lot of "trial-and-error" to determine which approaches work best, and my social interactions have gotten far less awkward as I have gotten older. I do detach my thoughts from my feelings, and after a social interaction, I do like to spend time alone contemplating them. I also have ADHD combined-type, impulsive/hyperactive. I guess I have always felt like a "square peg" no matter what I have done. I have a tremendous mind for facts, dates, and trivia, and my reading comprehension skills were at a college level by the time I was in seventh grade. I am equally comfortable in the middle of a crowd, or sitting quietly reading a book by myself. If there is one thing that I will not abide it is a bully. If I think a person is being a bully, I will stand up to them no matter what the personal consequences are. Also, I do not "hoard" knowledge, I am happy to share what I know if I think it will help. I am the proverbial "jack of all trades, master of none."

    I guess I'm just wondering if anyone has any ideas as to whether it is my ADHD that causes me to be so difficult to read, or is there something I am overlooking? Please share your ideas. Thanks.

    Hello @tanstaafl28,

    If you are truly an ENTP and not IxTP... or if you truly lead with Ne yet relate to aspects of e5... then I feel quite confident suggesting you are actually an e7. Which wing though I could not say...

    What I've noticed is when actual ENxP 7w6s mistype (are unable to identify with the *never-ending-party* found in most e7 descriptions)...they usually settle on either 4w5 or 6w7... and when actual ENxP 7w8s mistype those individuals usually end-up believing they are 5w4 or 8w7. With you having your type listed as 5w6...I'm not sure which way to go with that but...

    If I was to guess based on what you wrote in this post...so/sx...ENTP...and the fact you seemingly identify with 2 & 8 (as stated in your tritype)... I would say...

    You seem like an ENTP 7 who's into intellectual pursuits.

    Pretty much every enneagram 7 that I have ever known has been diagnosed with ADD. Also, most 6's tend to have an anxiety disorder of some sort. Plus, I've noticed that most people that are bipolar tend to be sx doms.

    Thanks for your input. It appears that my tritype was indeed mistyped, but other than that, I appear to be a rather healthy So/Sx 5-8-4. I've consulted with some "experts" in the Enneagram community and they concur that it is my 8 fix, and instinctual variant stacking, that gives me the ability to be a less withdrawal-prone 5.

    I wonder how aspergers affects type. How might, say, an ENFJ or a 7 be affected by it?

    It's the other way around. Your type affects your ADHD.

    It becomes integrated into they way you are.

    It weakens and shapes it.
