    I think any INFP considering type 8 should look at E2 or E5 first.

    Hello guys !!!!!

    I'm so happy I found that post ...

    Let start with the beginning, I took the MBTI test few years ago with a professionnal teacher and coach and we both agreed quite easily that I was an INFP. (I retook it many times since that and I ended up the same, which I agree with)

    And I took the enneagram test recently and I ended up as an 8w7. The person I was with when I took the test was quite agree (as much as I was) that the description was quite accurate about me.

    So I looked up the net to see what that combination was about, and that's how I found you guys and your comments saying it was impossible, "period" as someone said ^^

    So please tell me why and how this does not make sense ?

    I'm intrigued by the possibility of an INFP 8.
    @B1lly_B1lly, have you considered enneatype 6? Seems like a fairly common enneatype for INFPs and I can see why 6 types might mistype as 8s.

    I don't get how INFP and 8 is such a contradictory combination. Maybe some of the experts can speak out here? I know someone said something about 8s having their emotional center repressed but does that necessarily mean that feeling as a function is repressed? If this were true then only T-dominant types could ever be type 8?

    I don't think any enneagram/mbti correlation is impossible.

I would think the tests would have to factor directions of integration and disintegration into their methodologies. Just a thought...
    Hi, you INFP person

    With all due respect to you being INFP and type 4.......I'd be more likely to think it would be an INFP with an enneagram that disintegrates into an 8...I just checked, so that would be enneagram 2. Because I associate 8 with Te, right? That would mean an INFP under severe stress as it's the opposite function to your dominant.

    An INFP 8 is either a mistyped INFP or a mistyped 8.

    I might cop to ISFP 8, though.

    Not an expert, but I wanna give my opinion
    Because (if I'm not mistaken) being an 8 is about being rational and not accepting bullshit. The sort of things I'd associate with Te. The intricate feelings of Fi would be so far out for the "non-personal" logic that is associated type 8. Wouldn't you think? It doesn't mean that all type 8's need to be Te dominant. I can definitely see INTJs as 8...but there, they have objective logic, Ni followed by Te. It is so bizarre to associate type 8 with Ne-Fi, these are both "subjective", "irrational" functions, their main concern isn't logic and impersonal, objective analysis, quite the opposite.

    Naranjo called the type 8 as the "sadistic character and lust". That goes incredibly against Fi, I think.

    What Wind up rex said.

    It isn't like it's totally impossible foreverz. They just don't go together. Like oil and water. Sure an emulsifier would put it there (i.e. degenerating into an 8 from type 2) but they're not really so compatible long term. I'm sure there's someone in the world somewhere that's INFP type 8, healthy, and living the dream. But he's probably in an Amazonian jungle somewhere and their internet is down right now.

    And it's important to remember that types have little tidbits of other things in them. An INFP isn't just a cat-loving hermit. You can exhibit traits that are just part of your personality.. an outlier of the norm, but still part of the equation and data nonetheless.

    INFPs aren't undriven people. They aren't unmotivated automatically, or striving for independence.. these are things humans in general tend to need and want. So naturally, if they want to find type 8 elements in themselves, they definitely will. Type 8 is one of those types that sounds really sexy to be (especially for young feeler dudes who want to feel a bit manlier and more validated by the macho sounding descriptions of the type 8) and gives everyone something to relate to just a little (like wanting possession over your own life, liking independence, and other cool things) but in reality is just a massive pain in the dick personality that requires constant honing, refining, and tailoring to not be a total uneducated stuck up asswipe to everyone around you.

    If you're INFP and typing as an 8, and you're young.. I think I'd look long and hard as to why before I'd be likely to accept that. If 60 year old sociology Professor INFP said he was type 8, well.. I wouldn't argue with him. It's.. possible. I guess.

    No. I would say that 9 is the most common Enneatype for INFPs, then 4 and p6. There are also a few INFP cp6s, 5s (mainly male) and 2s (mainly female).

    As others have said...an INFP 8 is probably either an INFP cp6 or an ENFP 8.
