    Default Enneagram Inaccurate? Can't find my type...

    There isn't one Enneagram Type that fits to me. I'll start.

    Yes
    1, 5, 7, 8.

    Maybe
    3, 4.

    No
    2, 6, 9.

    Further explanation:
    Type 1.
    Justice and Truth are two things I value more than anything.

    Type 2.
    I can't see myself as a 2...

    Type 3.
    Sucess is kinda important, but not to that degree.

    Type 4.
    I like being unique in a positive way, but not in a negative way.

    Type 5.
    I value competence above moral or stuff like that...

    Type 6.
    Oh Hell no. Being loyal is being a "bitch". Being loyal is being below someone. Everyone is equal, unless they are more competent.

    Type 7.
    Life without fun? Life without new experiences? BO-ring... This type is a definite yes.

    Type 8.
    Power! Wealth! Influence! Hell yeah. This type is a yes.

    Type 9.
    I don't accept life if it sucks. I want to change it. Tradition sucks as well.

    I'll try to find out myself.
    1: Type 7
    2/3/4: Type 1, 5 and 8 all tied!
    5: Type 4
    6: Type 3
    7/8: Type 2 and 9 tied
    9: Type 6

    Yeah, It didn't work out that well. Can someone please help? Thanks.

    You could be a 7w8. It's not common for INTPs, but at the end of the day, MBTI and Enneagram are separate. Just a question: do people ever mistake you for an extrovert? Maybe an INTP 7 could come across as more of an ENTP.

    Released the controls, you would open my eyes
    That somehow, all of this mess
    Is just my attempt to know the worth of my life

    For the Enneagram I think it pays to focus on which issues keep you from intimacy in relationships (both platonic and romantic) and from pursuing what's meaningful for you (in work, your personal life, etc). Being aware of such issues can be difficult, since we tend to be blind to our defense mechanisms—they do, after all, defend us from having to be fully aware and vulnerable.

    If you don't think you can fit into the system, it's your fault for not understanding it.

    @RandomINTP - 6 is really moreso about fitting in IMO.

    You said later on that 7 fits you the best, so I'm not really understanding what the issue is.

    Wow... Seriously?
    I have more than 2 values. You are the one that doesn't understand it. 1,5,7 and 8 all fit to me.

    Yeah, I'm actually more of an Ambivert because I'm social but too much drains me. Yeah. IRL, most people here would say I'm an ENTP.
    I'm argumentative (for the lolz) like an ENTP,
    I'm honest and straightforward like an ENTJ,
    And I can be very idealistic like an INFJ,
    But deep down I know I'm an INTP.

    The issue is my 2nd type. I could be either a 7w1, a 7w5 or a 7w8.

    For whatever reason, I've been told that wings are only for adjacent types. So you'd be a 7w8.

    Quite frankly, I don't understand why they can't be adjacent. I'd like to call myself a 6w4, but for some reason this isn't possible or something.

    Enneagram is accurate once you get to know yourself good enough to know that you are that type. Also, it seems to me that you barely understand what the types are about so I would recommend to go read up on the subject. 8 is definitely not about power, wealth etc. whatever else you wrote here, lol. 8 is about seeking revenge as an attempt to avoid a sense of victimhood.

    I was waiting for the day you and I would meet.
