    Definitely much more with my enneagram type - I'm 7w8.

    Wow, tough choice.

    I would have to say MBTI because it feels more intuitive to me. This makes it easier to type others and to develop ideas/create discussion about it. Enneagram is difficult for me explore in my own head and it leaves me more reliant on descriptions out there (which are of varying quality). But perhaps I just haven't read enough about Enneagram structure.

    I've dreamt in my life dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas;
    they've gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the colour of my mind.

    @Southern Cross: I love Audrey Hepburn. Esp the movie Roman Holiday where I think she's most INFPish.

    I agree with those who have found the Enneagram more vague. I find it hard to place myself in that scheme.
    I did get some personal insights reading type 9 but the other wing aspects are difficult for me to interpret.
    I do like the healthy average and unhealthy descriptions as a way to better understand differences between people of the same type who may be struggling with aspects of their personalities because of dysfunctional family environments.
    I vote MBTI for best personality typing system for 2011.

    It took me a very long time to set aside my prejudices to enneagram, but thanks to a great trainer, I finally get to see how enneagram and MBTI can complement one another i.e. how my 6wing can bring insight into the INTP parts that don't really suit me.

    MBTI. I am a very spiritually balanced person and score high in 1, 4, 5, 7, 8 and 9. Generally, I think MBTI is easier to tell when one is emotionally healthy, while enneagram is easiest to tell in people with average emotional health. healthy enneagram types can seem like almost any type

    MBTI though my 9ness adds a bit of extra flavour to understanding myself.

    I agree. I have found that the nine description in "Wisdom of the Enneagram" fit me to a tee and lends a greater understanding of myself that I hadn't reached through the MBTI reading that I did.

    I'm split on 8w9 and 3w4 but I can say that it really fits me better some scientific ENTJ description out there. The profiles make us sound like some aggressive bullheaded scientist and I beg to differ.

    Can't relate to the enneagram health levels for my type at all, just the core fixation... and that's good enough for me in terms of self-discovery, though I more frequently test as 4.

    MBTI was useless for me. JCF was okay. As previously stated, enneagram is more inside looking out and thus resonates with my inner world more.
