    Default Tied enneagram scores?

    I scored a tie on the enneagram test (never heard of it before joining this forum)

    Has anyone else done this? Thoughts?

    Not exactly, but I have scored 5 as the highest as much as I've scored 7 as the highest, I guess you just have to choose which description resonates with you more.


    Taking a concept to it's logical end is rarely logical or relevant to the subject at hand.

    The first time I took the test, I skipped a question, because.... it just didn't seem to apply. At all. But I retook the test, and came back as a 7, and a couple close runner ups.

    INFJ E7 is a very very rare combination. I don't really want to deny any possibility, but I'd say to either consider alternative MBTI or Enneagram typings first before going with INFJ 7.

    I've been scored as an INFJ since I was 16. ONCE I scored as an ENFJ... but I'm only 11% I, and that ONCE was a 1% E. (I've had to take the test a few times, almost minoring in Psych. Took it again, recently, and got nearly the same exact result with a completely different test. It was THE MOST accurate description I have EVER read of *my* own personality, ever) The type 7thing... isn't as exact. But the "meaning of the arrows thing" and the "motivations", for their intended purposes are accurate.

    Tests only go so far. It's better to read into the material such as Psychological Types by Jung which goes over each function and how they appear in the 16 types. Not to say that the 4 letter dichotomy doesn't have any validity but yeah, online descriptions also offer fairly broad generalizations. People often come here saying "well I've taken this test 50 times and I've gotten INTJ each time" or something like that haha. But from this short interaction INFJ seems possible.

    How you talk about E7 is a little more telling though. Typing yourself on the Enneagram is a lot more of an introspective process. You have to look deep within yourself and notice what's dark - the parts of you you want to deny. The fear itself should be enough to make you keel over in anxiety (7s especially because we're always planning for the future). To only relate to the integration and disintegration points enough to bring them up makes it seem like you don't relate to the fear of being deprived or in pain at all. I know every time my E7 spirit mentor @Starry brings up something like an E7's superficiality, or their tendency to prevent themselves from feeling strong emotions, I sometimes secretly want to go to E2 as my backup plan. But it's a part of me that I have to acknowledge, accept, and learn to work with. Typing yourself in the Enneagram shouldn't only just touch the surface but also reach deep within you and pull out the good, the bad, and the ugly.

    It's interesting how you had to take the MBTI so many times though. I'm a psych major and I've only taken it once back in high school during AP psych.

    Perhaps you'd be better off reading my introduction. I majored in Anthropology, International Development, with minors in public health and biology. I'm currently taking my pre-reqs for med school. (Went to film school first, after 2 years in the national guard). This test isn't limited to Psychology 101. Interesting you mention the E2 as "back up plan" though... before I retook the test (answered ALL the questions) I tied with the type 2. Having read both of them, I'm more inclined, having lived within myself for the past 30 years, to identify with the 7. I don't expect a perfect stranger to understand in an incomplete paragraph the depths of my being what has taken an entire life to understand, and eventually, make peace with. Dark? I have about as much tolerance for "the dark side" as light unless it's absolutely necessary. Okay, so an INFJ also being a 7 is rare. And you just pissed one off. Peace.

    I honestly don't understand why you're pissed off by this lmao. I didn't really have a confrontational attitude. You posted a thread saying you tied scores asking for thoughts, you decided to go to E7, I posted my thoughts. If you don't take a stranger's opinion seriously then there's nothing to be pissed off about...I was providing my thoughts and you were providing yours. But since you apparently seem to enjoy being the shit-stirrer, here's your prize:



    Sure, identify as whatever you please. Be my guest, INFJ 7. Here's to hoping you don't get so reactive next time when someone offers you alternatives. Now go take your repressed misdirected anger somewhere else, basic.

    I didn't ask for an alternative. I questioned tied results, after having taken a test; didn't "type myself", though I did agree, to an extent, with the result. You may not have viewed yourself as having been "confrontational" but you were definitely presumptive. And now you're just insulting.

    You asked for 'thoughts'. You got some, even reasonable ones. On a typology forum, having your self-typing questioned is inevitable, especially when you invite it like this. You better get used to it.
