    Default ISTP & type 8(enneagram)

    I just took the enneagram test and I scored very strongly as an 8. I don't know much about the enneagram. Just wondering if it is common for an ISTP to score as an 8.

    My closest friend/lover/perpetual ex is an ISTP 8w5 <--- I know that's "impossible" but he is.

    So, yeah, it's possible.

    You could just be a 5 that is very integrated?

    This just shows you don't know much about the enneagram... 5's integrate into type 8. So an integrated 5 would naturally relate well to the 8.

    After doing more research and taking every enneagram test I could find, I am definitely an 8 with a 7 wing. Once I scored 7w8 but other than that, the 8 is almost always very strong. I don't relate at all to the type 5 descriptions. Neither does the other ISTP I know for that matter. 8 sounds really accurate on the other hand. 8w7 was even called the "Maverick" on one site.

    I have an ENTJ friend who typed as an ISTP. Check out the ENTJ description. Also check out the ESTP and ISTJ descriptions.

    I score 7w8 (and 5 occasionally). I dislike the enneagram because I see a lot of myself in all of these. I guess that's integration? Who knows. I can relate to a lot of the 8 description so I don't think it's strange for an ISTP to be 8w7.

    To Ezra-

    Are you suggesting I mistyped. I have typed as an ESTP. ISTP description fits better because I am fairly reserved rather than expressive. It is possible though that I am ENTJ. My brother typed as ENTJ and we are pretty much two of a kind. I just thought ISTP's and ENTJ's could look a lot alike.

    Hello!

    Here's some examples of enneagram 8 ISTPs:

    Rocky Balboa, ISTP 8w9


    Josip Broz Tito, ISTP 8w7


    Jacques Mesrine, ISTP 8w9 (with growing 7 wing during the later life)


    Buttercup, ISTP 8w7


    Jango Fett, ISTP 8w9 (Boba Fett is an ISTP 5w6)
    EsTP 6w7 Sx/Sp

    Chaotic Neutral

    E=60% S=55% T=70% P=80%
