    Default Instinctual Variants

    Are there any enneagram experts here?

    I'm having the hardest time figuring out my instinctual variant.

    Hello!

    What exactly do you want to know?

    Can somebody help me figure out my enneagram type, as long as we're here?

    A lot of work has already been put into that, I'm afraid. How much more can be done, I don't know...

    I once tried to post something that might have been helpful for you, but my message kept getting cut off for some god damn reason! :steam:

    For some reason, I think it's easier not to fit into enneagram type than not to fit into MBTI type.

    I don't know. I've always had an easier time typing people via the Enneagram. It's easier for me to figure out what people think than how they think. The Enneagram is more related to the first while the MBTI is more related to the second.

    I suppose it's possible that, in perhaps trying to define people by belief and motive, the Enneagram types are narrower? It's just never been that way for me.

    Perhaps. What might explain my difficulty with enneagram is that I know nothing about myself but I know the how about myself quite well.

    That could actually be very useful...
    If you don't know yourself, what do you usually let guide you in situations where most people would let their indentities guide them?
