    Your Ennegram type is your WHY, your motivation and primal instincts. Your MBTI type is your HOW, your personality, how you act and respond to your environment. You won’t be able to find your personality type before finding out why you are like that.

    So the first thing you need to do is determinate your Enneagram, if you don’t do this before going into MBTI it’ll be too confusing and hard to differ what is one thing and what is another.

    SimilarMinds is quite bogus for most people, though it worked just fine for me. I’d recommend:

    http://www.eclecticenergies.com/enneagram/test.php
    http://www.handprint.com/HM/ENN/egram.html

    A lighter and faster one:

    It also gave me the same answer.

    You should read the Ennegram types descriptions by the user "Timeless" at Personalitycafe.com, he's amazing.

    STAY AWAY from this one:

    It’s the worst I’ve encountered, everyone I know including myself got mistyped.

    YES. People in this forum have tried to convince me I’m an ESFP and in another forum, that I’m an ISFP. They came up with a whole lot of bullshit but failed to back it up, some even disappeared after I debunked they theories, and have never answered my questions .

    no, but if there was any seed of truth to his words, then id expect he thought my mindless melodrama is something an esfj would do.
    i would expect my melodrmma is just 5w4 disintegrating to 7, (creates mindlessness) combined with 4w3 fix and having an Fe function.

    i think im most likely infj, although i totally hate the stereotype. one thing is for example, that J doms seem to be defined by concepts, such as where you live, what you support, and other things i would never identify with. its like they lived in a synthetic constructed reality. (when an enfj once asked me, with anger evident in his posture, that am i capitalist, because i told my mother was ((just LOLS at his logic)) and i did my best to translate my undefined stance into a concept he could understand, by saying "no! im a humanitarian" which i expect is along to the lines to what i am.

    and then that intp i mentioned, he preached me how i should use ne, to not define everything so precisely, and he doorslammed me just cause of that. now that i talked with an enfj, i could see those tips mightve helped him very much, since his typing method seemed to be too theoretical and not in touch with reality. whereas i am in touch with reality when it comes to typing, but the theory escapes my attention as im mostly unable to make sense of it. (and that intp took everything i said in his way, like every word i used about others was some kind of defined label, and made horrible conclusions from them.)

    i also red one forum post that mentioned an intp rejecting someone for being virgin. who does THAT? i dont think i could ever have a relationship with someone so close minded. also another j dom trait i dont relate at all is the sensitivity to emotions. i guess, having the observation functions in middle means they are always balanced, therefor un-ignorable, meaning, if you feel bad, you cant escape it. when i feel crap, i have three options: change my judgment(the best one) passively experience the pain(middle one) detach from them(the worst one)

    my approximate estimation is, that every second person is mistyped in some area. (based on reading old threads, and correlating what they thought they were back then to what its now)
    healthiness is all about appreciating other peoples inferior function. its like the sore spot no one ever notices, but we desperately wish they did, and if you focus on doing that, youll have many friends. and also learn to appreciate your own inferior function, others wont find it stupid if you show them how cool it is.

    @Dancing_Queen! that handprint test is so bad! did you actually get the right type with that one?

    It’s the worst I’ve encountered, everyone I know including myself got mistyped.
    i did the 9types one:
    Type 1 Type 2 Type 3 Type 4 Type 5 Type 6 Type 7 Type 8 Type 9
    -3,,,,,,,,,-4,,,,,,,,,,0,,,,,,,,,,,8,,,,,,,,,,,7,,,,,,,,,-6,,,,,,,,,-12,,,,,,,,,-1,,,,,,,,,11

    it was veeerrrryyyy frustrating, because many of the questions seemed so alien to me.
    and many of the questions seemed to correlate directly with Fi + Te vs Ti + Fe difference, doesnt make it seem consistent.

    type nine is the ennea i consider the lamest ever, i guess i might have some nine tendencies cause finland is a 9w1 country. they pretty much forced me to behave like a nine. as a child, my usual trouble dealing method was to hit their face, (no one told me its wrong -.-) they just took me out of home for that, and scrutinized me heavily for it.(without even explaining why i couldnt do it.) i became so, SO afraid of acting myself due that, so i succumbed into being super withdrawn, and i always had htis boiling hidden calm anger to me since then, which looks like im a volcano about to erupt if you saw pictures of my childhood. ive pretty much bottled all of my feelings thorought my life due it.

    and then recently ive started to let it out, so they took me to mental hospital for being too intense. -.-

    also being an Fe user might have something to do with "going according to others will" or accommodating or whatever, which is apparently a nine thing? on top of that, 5w4 is the calmest of all enneagrams. three people have complimented me for my calmness. 5w4 seems sound.. need to analyze more though.

    Stop trying to tie everything to type. You don’t even know yours to begin with, and this tendency will make it even harder for you to find out.

    INTPs are like that. All of them. They drive me nuts, I can’t stand them in general. I had one dropping by my “please type thread” just to point out I was mistyped and just what type of MBTI and Ennegram I was.

    When I ask him if he thought he knew better than a professional team of MBTI specialist he disappeared.

    Close minded is their middle name. Hypocrites, too.

    Yes, I did. Except from that one I told him to stay away from, I got the same type in all of them.

    I guess I'm an 8w7 through and through .

    Again, your’re tying to relate Ennegram to cognitive functions, when it has no connection to it whatsoever!!!

    You’re doing it wrong. Basically you think a type is “lame”, when such a thing doesn’t exist. You may not identify yourself with it, but the way you talk it seems you’re not gonna aceppt being a type you don’t like. Which is probable.

    You’re set on correlation MBTI to Ennegram, when I’ve told you several types it’s a futile attempt. It doesn’t work, and if you insist in doing this, I don’t think I’ll ever be able to help you, or anyone who really understands it either.

    You took only one test and found it “inconsistent”. But how can you judge that before actually understanding the Ennegram system itself?

    Being an Fe user does not make one a type 9.

    I’m sorry, but you sound far from calm. Again your Ennegram is about your inner instincts, wants, needs and nature (your motivation), not how you act and respond or in other words, your personality. That’s your MBTI type.

    Just because you seem calm to others doesn’t mean you’re actually are like that on the inside. Neither does it make you a type 5w4.

    You’re oversimplifying everything.

    a picture i took of myself when i was totally lost, in my 4w3 fix mania. the presence of mania fits 5w4 disintegration, and look at my eyes, they scream confusion, which is exactly what i, and 5w4's hate. im again having one of these introspective moments when i break out of my mania (usually lasts around a week), but i usually always slip back because i get confused again, and it just freaks the hell out of me.

    and theres that tint of 4w3 love of novelty, meaning me making the confusion actually kind of pleasurous, despite how much i hate it.
    + not to mention the distinct 4w3 artsy style of taking pictures. (of course, thats all fake, since im not a real 4w3, but i acted like one in that period)

    on the functions thing: infp's world is totally alien to me, so cant be that. and in general i have trouble connecting with Fi's, its as if they just wont let me connect to them with my empathy, idk why! =S (i suppose, its as in socionics says the merry vs serious difference, that fi's are too serious, thus afraid of conencting to people.)

    you could look at the statistics i posted earlier, its clear as glass they are false. if it was anything like they indicated, we'd live in a conmpletely different world. i mean, 26% are fives, seriously? how many of all people you met were fives? more like a minority, not every fourth person. certain traits associated with enneas are clearly traits which are exhibited by certain functions. compare an esfp 1w9 and any other 1. youll see they are completely different, as the stereotypes wont apply. theres easily enough evidence to say that the statistics are clearly false. why are they false? cause the tests dont work.

    well, being alone drives me nuts. i lose my sense of reality, other people help me ground. thats why, in other peoples presence, i become calm. alone, im very neurotic. which is evident from majority of my posts, since im alone when i post them..

    "I’m sorry, but you sound far from calm. Again your Ennegram is about your inner instincts, wants, needs and nature (your motivation), not how you act and respond or in other words, your personality. That’s your MBTI type."

    well, the test seemed to be entirely trait based, and majority of those traits were also charasteristics of different mbti types.

    trusting external things like iq tests and others of equally irrelevant qualities, is a Te thing. those tests only work if you allow your identity to be dictate by someone else, whom you just hope to be correct?
    healthiness is all about appreciating other peoples inferior function. its like the sore spot no one ever notices, but we desperately wish they did, and if you focus on doing that, youll have many friends. and also learn to appreciate your own inferior function, others wont find it stupid if you show them how cool it is.

    Where is this picture you speak of? You didn't post it.

    If you're not 4w3 why do you describe your behavior as such? It makes no sense. Even when we're stressed or depressed we do not act like a different Ennegram type. You'd still act like a 5w4 if you really were one, no matter what circunstances, the descriptions do cover that too.

    It's on MBTI that we have a "Shadow Type", which is the opposite of our normal cognitive functions. There's no such a thing in Enneagram.

    Who said you were INFP? I didn't.

    I don't base my knowledge on statistics. I base it on personal experience.

    You hate being alone and still you think you're a 5w4???Do you realize that's the exact opposite of what this type is like? A 5w4 would love to be alone! They are introverted and prefer solitude and introspection.


    You're trying to rationalize the test instead of letting the results speak for themselves. You're biased and that clearly influences the results.

    You have no idea of what Te is about. If you understood, you wouldn't say that. I advise to stop trying to use functions to back your arguments up, at last until you dominate the subject.

    Everything you posted about MBTI has been based on stuff written by others you read somewhere. You trust what non professionals say about MBTI but not tests based on professional ones?

    Where's your logic ?
