People's motivations are the second most malleable portion of their personality, after their outwardly expressed behavior.
    If by motivation you mean "monday, I want to buy a care, saturday I want to fuck that girl and the next month I want to travel around the world", of course it's malleable. But enneagram is more: lost essential quality>>>compulsive way to deal with pain>>>>motivations.

    Very different.

    Well, a test is only as accurate as the information it's given and the scoring methodology it uses. That doesn't invalidate the enneagram itself.

    Hello, I am brand new.
    I am without doubt INFP, I took the other test
    and it said I was 5w4. The 5 and the 4 were one point apart, next was 9 (peacemaker)
    I AM GOING TO TAKE THIS TEST AGAIN. Is it true that INFP is by far the most rare ?
    and that 5 is very rare among them ? the first guy in this thread said he felt " different "...alien
    to other humans. I have felt this way...and my test scores (types) seem to justify these feelings.

    I understand that 9 and 5-4 are said to be "opposites" ? is that true ?
    I love science and science fiction. I write science fiction. serious writing. I have one long novel that is
    a combination of science fiction and Harry Potter type magic stuff. My writing may 'suck' but I am serious about it.
    I do it mostly because I 'need' to, like scratching an itch .

    I am also very much into art and beauty , but ALL I like is Morbid and Grotesque.
    traditional beauty is of no interest to me.

    please maybe someone could post a link to a chart that shows the 'rarity' of different
    combo's ....like INFp and 5w4.

    above is my first post ever. please be patient .

    I get the sense that a lot of type five INFPs are writers or aspiring writers. Am I alone in this?

    I thought the INFP was the " writer " ...type 5 or other wise.
    but...if 5w4 is also known to be 'writers' then ..yeah I got a double wammy !

    INFP 4-5-9's a pretty good match I would say.

    9's are the most interesting of the Enneagram and are often referred to as the "crown".
    They can be morally just like a 1, caring like a 2, self-confident like a 3, creative like a 4, analytic like a 5, loyal like a 6, energetic like a 7, stubborn and strong like an 8, but the type least like the 9 is actually the 9 itself, and that is where it falters.

    Plus your hope to be a special snowflake suggests you have a strong 4 fix.

    @Tiny, I'm also an INFP, and I had very similar test results to you. I got 5, 4, and 9 from different test. I think I'm a 5, but honestly they all describe me well. I've seen a few other INFP 459s around here, as well. So it doesn't seem uncommon, at least among INFPs.

    I have done some more reading and I am convinced of \
    the 5-4-9 thingy to go with my INFP.
    iV READ THAT SOME PEOPLE mis-Dx'd themselves for years
    on end/ so ...Im good right now with saying that
    im INFP,5w4 !

    some feel like they were born into the wrong families...
