    Such a freak (just kidding) has been identified, actually: Chart Three-A

    My first thought is they were either mistyped or must be a very conflicted creature. However, mightn't a certain kind of 'strong, silent type' of person be an INFP Eight? A bit like Martin the Warrior from the Redwall series (for anyone with that as a reference...) Not that I think he was one, just that there might be ways to manifest a desire for power more conducive to the INFP cognitive preferences.

    There are some other results that aren't quite stereotypical as well, INTJ Fours for example, and an ESTP One, but I don't think they're unbelievable.

    Would that even work? And if it did, how on earth would it come off?
    Also, are there any other MBTI types that would sound awkward with a certain enneagram? And have you seen any that exist?
    Haha and ISTJ Type 7 would be awkward.
    or an ENFP type 1.
    ESTJ Type 4.

    all would interesting.

    I'm an INTJ Type One. Most are type 5.

    I used to test as an ESTJ Type 8.

    I used to wish I could confront people and get them to listen to me and so I projected that into my answer choices. I am not an E, not in the slightest. I'm also not an S, many need things spelled out too specifically for them. (The biggest difference between my ISTJ friend and myself)

    How's that work out for them?
    4w3, IEI, so/sx/sp, female, and Cancer sign.

    My thoughts on...
    Enneagram:
    Socionics:
    MBTI:

    DISCLAIMER: If I offend you, I'm 99.9% sure it's unintentional. So be sure to let me know, m'kay? (And yes, an INFP would stick this in their signature, lol.)

    I'm an NFP and I've typed 8 before, but not consistently. I usually type as 4 (I am definitely a 4w3...I think). I think 8 reflects my shadow side.

    So are INFPs who claim to consistently be 8s living in their shadow?

    I actually was thinking about this the other day because 8 is apparently the unhealthy side of 2, and healthy 2s can look like 4s, so then I was like "Wait!?? I'm I a 2??"

    Seems redundant to say it, but what the hell. I agree (though I'd pick ESTJ for the most unlikely 4). No doubt this reply will improve your self-esteem tremendously.

I would think the tests would have to factor directions of integration and disintegration into their methodologies. Just a thought...
    This is plausible. A fair percentage of INFPs are 5s (usually 5w4s), and 5s can act pretty 8ish at times. One place you can witness this firstand is in Border’s, where many of the booksellers are 5s. They can get rather bossy and territorial among themselves.

    I really don't know... I do know, however that we are a very different animal, and she's more extroverted than I am. She says she is an INFP because her values are the most important thing to her vs an ENFP, where it would be ideas, possibilities.

    I just think it's projecting. I had my dad test last night.
    He's an ESTJ, My mother is ESFJ and my teenage brother is ESTP.
    I just wanted to be an extroverted sensor. Haha, not so much anymore.
