I've noticed, that most of the INFPs are typed as 4s, most of the INTPs 5s, most of ENFPs 7s and so on... I can see why it is. People have some triads correlated to some MBTI types and so they relate to enneagram types with similar characteristics. But I wonder if really so many INFPs are 4s, or so many ENFPs are 7s. I think people loose the real meaning of the enneagram here. The enneagram is about basic fear and that basic fear motivates you to have some desires, that you find liberating from it. So I think, that what really and truly matters in your ennegram are 2 things: fear and desire. Everything else is just a guess how the person might act, look, behave...So it's not importnat how much you relate to the characteristic of the type, but how much you relate to its basic fear and motivation. I find enneagram descriptions good to read, but not necessarily relevent when one tries to find his type. I think it's possible to be for example an ESFP and enneagram 1, because basic fear can be different from MBTI functions, still I can hardly imagine an ESFP who would type himself as 1. So how important enneagram characteristics of the type really are? How to know where the enneagram starts and MBTI ends?
