    Haven't changed anything but I'd say if there's anything that can switch it would be my T/F function. In my INFP results, my F is the weakest one! The other three are STRONG!

    I wonder how all these "votes" shake out if you factor in for the comments about "when I was a kid/younger"? I assume that many on this forum are not over 25. (Do we have stats on this??)

    I am of the opinion that early life (heredity, family of origin, circumstance, etc.) sets us off on a few most likely paths. Without some large trauma or other life changing events, we will end up much like we started, reinforcing early tendencies until they become relatively fixed as a young adult. So in this sense, we may experiment with different personalities or shift in response to events when we are younger. By our early 20's I believe it gets much harder to change at a fundamental level.

    That said, I think Enneagram doesn't change after early 20's. I do think one can learn skills and patterns of behavior that would have someone test a different MBTI. Now, did their underlying functions change, or did they just learn to rely on other ones more than their natural tendencies? I will say the latter, but it could still mean that they act, seem and test differently.

    I have had rather strong tendencies since a young age, and little to shift them. And so I think I've been the same for quite a long time.

    1. Do you think that you were ever (genuinely) another MBTI type?

    There was a point in my teens when I was (badly) coping with things by completely repressing every single one of my emotions, and I tested as INTJ. But before and after I've tested as INFP, so I don't think I was ever really any other type. Sometimes I wonder about the different types I could've been if I were the same person with a different life. Or if I met alternate universe me. I think would've made a good ESFP.

    2. Do you ever think that you were ever another enneagram type?

    Hmm. I don't know. I never took any enneagram tests until very recently and I'm not sure I have enough objective knowledge about myself to categorize past me in this way. But it all changes as a person changes. Or at least, it doesn't have to stay the same.

    I am 45. I don't believe my type has changed, just my perception of myself is clearer as I do inner work and remove ego constructs.

    It is clear to me that I have always been a ENFJ. It fits how I have lived even if not how I conceived myself.

    I took the official MBTI several times in my early 20s and tested as a ISTP, which makes since I tried to reject feelings as a coping mechanism from childhood. I was never a ISTP, just in the grip of Ti.

    As for enneagram, I really am not sure still. 9w8 is in my stack. 2w3 (or 3w2) is there as well. But I still have more work to do on this midlife transformation....

    I need to keep seeing myself better.....

    1. My natural P/J distinction is so minuscule that I've tested ENFJ before. However, I've observed that my general preference is slightly P and that I resort to extreme J when I'm stressed, which I frequently am. I've also wondered before if I was INFP because of the amount of alone time I require, but I attribute this to the typical ENFP need to be alone to recenter. (My N and my F are off-the-charts high.) All the other evidence points ENFP -- my way of speaking, my cognitive functions, and pretty much all of the absent-minded/flighty/head-in-the-clouds/can't-start-a-project-for-her-life ENFP stereotypes that exist!

    2. I used to be certain I was a 7, but now I don't know what I am. I'm definitely either a 2w3 or a 3w2, but I'm not sure. I fit descriptions of both 2 and 3 to a T.

    When I was younger, I was very 4-ish. Though I'm still not 100% positive on my enneagram, I believe I'm a 6w5. I've tested as 5w4, 9w1, and 1w9. Most recently, and seemingly most accurately, however, 6w5.
    As for my MBTI, I was much too detached as an adolescent to even know, to be quite honest. I hated people as a whole, but loved each individual I met. Even though I disliked most of them... I've always been sort of a walking contradiction, so who knows!

    When i first did the test(like 8 months before joining the forum) i got an intj and it seemed to fit reasonably well according to the tests description, so i thought i was an intj. But after looking at type theory bit in more depth i quickly realized i was an intp instead.

    I used to think I was an INTP. The researching part of the descriptions match, but INTP does not fit me at all.

    I'm still not sure on the S/N divide, but I don't randomly "get" things the way high Ni users do.

    I think I got ESTJ and INTJ the first few times i took it. On the surface, my demeanor and the way I communicate can come off TJ-ish but when I reveal my actual thought process and motivations, it's a more calculated, less warm Fe approach.
