    More with enneagram.

    I identify most with ISFP of all the MBTI types , but I really do identify with all the xxFPs to some extent at least. As for enneagram, I also identify with several of the other types, but there's a lot of stuff in the type 9 description that is really so right on target with me. Sometimes eerily so.

    I identify with them equally, but I personally find the enneagram more useful.

    enneagram, i like the different levels.

    I guess I'm in the minority but I'm going with MBTI. Although that is probably just because I've known about it longer and actually learned the basics in a class. Whereas I've just recently learned about enneagram. And that is just on my own and help from one friend. But from what I have learned me being 9w1 is pretty accurate

    Most certainly with my enneagram (7w8) much more than my MBTI (ENTJ).

    I used to think MBTI was useless and the enneagram is the true system, but now I am kind of mucked up. I think it's just hard for me to reconcile my INFJness with the sensate 6 descriptions. My wings are easy enough to connect with MBTI (my five wing was like my Ni-Ti and my seven wing was Fe-Se), and the six description makes a lot of sense, it relates to how my environment changed me, and seems to help me more with personal growth. I just am so skeptical of it (But apparently that is very sixish of me). It also seems to account to why I find I have a different attitude to a lot of INFJ 4's. Maybe I imagine that though.

    Enneagram fo sho.

    I still can't decide on my MBTI type, and I don't think I ever will. I think it's also a slightly outdated system, but it's still onto something.

    Both but with enneagram, more to do with the instinctual stackings. Not partial to the 8 description and find the way they determine the healthier levels leans to Fe and extroversion. With MBTI, more cognitive processes than dichotomies. Dichotomies are like an entry point into MBTI.

    So, this means I don't fully embrace either, taking away what works with me and leaving behind what sounds airy-fairy.
