    Default Yo homies...do you know any INFP's that seem E7-ish? Or is that cra?

    According to the books...INFP 7's are supposedly very uncommon.

    However I sometimes find that they portray E7 characteristics.

    Could this be because 4's (most common among INFP's) and 7's share a connection to E1?

    Or do you think it's all in the tritype?

    You know I've always thought IFP + E7 was a totally believeable combination since their extroverted cousins are most commonly E7. I don't like to COMPLETELY rule out any special exceptions of type combinations because I'm sure some are out there, but for INFP when it comes to positive outlook I'd say consider E9 first. I have a 9w1 fix but the possibility of being core 9 has certainly crossed my mind a few times. I've actually met two INFP 2w1s as well so I might even say to even consider 2 before 7 (specifically 2w1 because 2w3 seems to be more extroverted). But it's totally not cray.

    After talking to @AntiheroComplex I think I believe in the possibility of any Enneagram-MBTI combination.

    It's not cray-cray, but I'm pretty sure INFP E7 would be rarer. Might I offer a few other possibilities?

    ENFP E7 is fairly frequent, so a borderline xNFP might get confused with an INFP.

    INFP E5 isn't common, but it's not unheard of, and they'll disintegrate to 7.

    INFP E9s are common(ish), and they are all over the place on what characteristics they'll display (when they decide to actually display characteristics).

    @Chanaynay makes a good point about an INFP E2 possibly being confused for an INFP E7 at first brush.

    I don't see them as particularly contradictory. Sexual 7w6 in particular can be very INFP-ish (dreamy, fantastical, more withdrawn and 4-ish than other 7s). similar to 7, Fi is a fairly narcissistic function ("how do I vibe with this?" "how does this relate to me?" "how does this fit with my values?" etc) and Ne is scattered, enthusiastic about new ideas and escapist (NPs are very sensory avoidant and run at the first sign or routine or physical labor).

    imo, 3 is probably the most contradictory type with dominant Fi.

    I think my friend MIGHT be. I am ...just about sure she is a seven, but I am having a hard time telling if she is INFP or ENFP. She can sound more sure of herself and is willing to do things that she'll have fun with or provide her with meaningful experiences, has a stronger vibe than I do (or at least I think so), just about everyone loves her. She is a very open person and such...

    I feel like people would consider her an extrovert in the traditional sense, but for some reason ...I can't shake off the idea that she could be an introvert.

    @Chanaynay and @Udog you bring up a good point about 9's.

    Although, I would think that 9's don't take AS much initiative as 7's do

    ...what do you think?

    Yeah, they're called "ENFPs".
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)
