    Default The Personality Profile Project

    So I have an idea.

    We have a lot of very knowledgeable people here. What do you think about an effort to develop a set of personality profiles? We could start with MBTI then go to Enneagram or do them simultaneously. For the time being, we can post these in the current structure but I'd like to build out some other library/reference material type pages too.

    The way we could do it is to start with a volunteer who initiates a thread that "owns" the profile that they want to write. People comment and critique on what was written and contribute content.

    I was thinking that I could write up INTJ. Here is my thought for an overall outline.

    INTJ - Overall Description

    INTJ - In Love and Life

    INTJ - In Work

    INTJ - In Family

    How to recognize the INTJ

    INTJ Videos

    Common INTJ Enneagram types


    ANY VOLUNTEERS???

    I think this would only be useful if there wasn't already a ton of MBTI descriptions out there. It would be more useful if you did tritypes or instincts.

    I would suggest writing descriptions of each three-letter combination (Int or ITJ, for example). Each description could begin by describing things that the two types have in common, followed by a list of differences. There are several Enneagram sources that compare each type with every other type, but as far as I know, nothing similar for MBTI. I don't think we need to go quite that far, but under my system, There would be descriptions comparing INTJs with ENTJs, ISTJs, INFJs and INTPs. If someone's having trouble deciding between, for example, INTJ and INTP, that sort of description could help them decide. It could also act as a description of people whose preference on one of the dichotomies is right in the middle, I.E. it could act as an INTx type profile.

    I can offer my perspective on ENTPness.

    Since many of us understand other typology systems, it would be great if we could use our knowledge to separate stereotypes from the actual functioning of the processes themselves.

    Interesting idea to provide info where there is none today. The only issue with tritypes/instincts is that it isn't really that well established. There are a couple of Enneagram practitioners that invented tritypes and they have developed their own definitions that are published (if you purchase the materials). So, we would be trying to take what is a pretty proprietary system and come up with stuff on it.

    I think this is a really good idea in that people often have a hard time choosing type. If there was a way to provide guidance, that would be a very good thing.

    Here is where I think there is a huge gap. There are a lot of descriptions out there but they aren't necessarily function oriented and as you say, there are stereotypes. @SolitaryWalker has implied that there are a lot of bad "folk typology" profiles out there and I agree with him.

    I like this idea! So I guess it will be some sort of a TypeC 'semi-official' description of all the types? That will be helpful. Time to do away with the 'mystical INFJs' stereotype!

    I remember that in my Enneagram phase I liked the "How to get along with me" section in 9types.com a lot. Maybe we can have that as well?

    Time to revisit this. I think we need to get some decent and easy to find profiles on our site.

    We need to determine where we will put the profiles. I am sort of leaning towards a subforum under MBTI (tm) and Jungian Cognitive Functions, that includes a number of them. There are two sources I'm investigating adding up front:

    - One of our former members (SimulatedWorld) offered his permission for us to post profiles that he developed a couple years ago
    - I'm asking @SolitaryWalker if he would be so kind as to allow us to post profiles that he has written

    Thoughts? Feedback?
