    Default Enneagram Compatibility

    Are there any theories about this?

    There's one enneagram type that I find myself consistently drawn to.

    I'm generally don't advocate match-making advice with any type system.
    I can say that the relevance of the Enneagram relationships is probably greater than the MBTI, because the Enneagram has so much more to do with personal goals, and philosophies, and behavior. It's not as internal and purely cognitive as the MBTI, so it manifests itself in much more outward ways, the kind of ways that are likely to have an effect on a relationship.

    However, there is no way to assert what type would work with what type. Do you want someone just like you? Or how about someone really different and complimentary? Some gradient inbetween perhaps? The answer to this would heavily affect which type you are attracted to.

    Aside from attraction, the practical compatibility of two Enneagram types also depends on how to parters involved intend to divide their responsiblities.
    It's generally all too complicated and individually determined.

    I do recall some statistics about which types form relationships the most often, but I'm not aware of the credibility of these statistics, nor do they say anything about the success rate of relationships after they are formed.

    Not sure if there are. I am willing to bet that there probably does exist some theory somewhere. I am not very much involved in the enneagram, so I would not know for certain or not. I, a 5 (wings currently undecided), find myself generally irritated by 2s, 7s, 3s, 6w7s, and 8w7s. I generally get along relatively well with 5s, 4w5s, 6w5s, 1w9s, 9w8s. The rest (4w3s, 1w2s, 8w9s, 9w1s) I usually have no remarkable opinion of.

    Yes. There's probably a lot of non-type related stuff that needs to be taken into account. Some of which might hold more weight than type when it comes to determining compatiblity. Good point.

    It struck me as surprising that Sevens and Ones are supposedly common partners. These two types would make one of the most authentic odd couples in the Enneagram. But I suppose it makes sense for all those people that seek that Anima/Animus relationship.
