Maybe he is ENFP and his Fi looks sort of Fe-ish at times through how extemely outgoing he is. I still think he is mainly a type 6 with some strong 7 tendencies towards "fun" but he is rather close.

    Oh, and I would like to add that Gary is an obvious INTP
    His Fi could look sorta Fe-ish. Actually, I think Fi works well, because the problem with Fe is that Fe dom knows how to accomosate to socially expected norms and recognize social cues, but in the movie for example, Spongebob's biggest obstical was the fact that he acted like a child and refused to grow up to adult standards.

    And agree, Gary is totally INTP

    Spongebob - ENFP 7 sx
    Squidward - ISTJ 6 sp
    Patrick - noidea 9 sx
    Sandy - ESTP 8 so
    Mr. Krabs - ESTJ 8 sp
    Plankton - INTJ 1 sx

    Squidward can't be a 3, that's the most extraverted enneagram type and he has no enthusiasm, no ambition. The only thing 3 like is his narcissistic paintings.

    Agree, for the most part, although type 4's are more likely to create narcissistic paintings.

    Squidward isn't a type 1w9 then? I noticed it's hard to get reasons for these calls. I wanted to know why 3w4 and not 4w3, and nobody responded. Why not 4 because of his artistic nature? Why not type 1 because of the contrast it forms with his neighbors' types, especially Spongey? Note the great potential for neighborly conflict between an orderly type 1 and a playful type 7 (or 6w7 if you want). Whereas there is less potential conflict between a Spongebob type 7 and a Sandy type 3, who are both extraverted types.

    If Squidward is a 1w9, then there will be further potential conflict with the leisurely - and far less ambitious - nature of the type's 9-wing.

    The aesthetic nature of Squidward's household environment shows not a 4-wing but an average 1's deterioration to 4 - a longing for a life free from the stress of perfectionism, of over-responsibility, by pursuing a more Bohemian lifestyle, which leads to an internal conflict with his 1 nature.

    Hmmm... I kind of assumed Squidward was a 6w5, but I could see him as a disgruntled 3w4 stuck in a dead-end job. The episode where he proposes to make a spectacle at the restaurant seems to suggest that...

    Not quite; in the episode where Spongebob (in etheral dream form) travels into his friend's dreams, Gary's dream reveals that Gary is a highly intelligent intellectual who is well read; thus typical INTP stereotype.

    He's obsessed with a distorted and warped image of himself; he fancies himself an 'artist' of which no one can match despite being a lousy artist and pretentious narcissist. I mean just look at how he react in the presence of Squillium, an individual who Squidward knows is better than him (as opposed to everyone else in Bikini Bottom, whom Squidward can easily look down upon because most of them aren't nearly as perfect as Squillium). If Suidward aint 3w4 then 4w3 would probably fit better for him, but there is certainly an image focus around him.

    If he made a spectacle at the Krusty Krab, then he had moved to his stress point. The average 9 (which is Squidward's wing) stresses to 6 and takes on a "siege mentality," reacting aggressively toward those things which disrupt his leisurely lifestyle.

    It looks as if I'll have to quote directly from Riso's Personality Types in order to clarify my statements as to Squidward's E-type.

    When Ones go to Four, they begin to fantasize about being someone else, being free of the burdens of their obligations. They seek out things of beauty and try to surround themselves with an aesthetically pleasing environment as a refuge from the pressures of their work. A certain "aesthetic elitism" develops. Average Ones see themselves as people of taste, and defend this sense of themselves all the more when they are under pressure...By Level 5, Ones begin to tire of the constant pressure to meet their ideals, and become moody and temperamental in their move to Four. They often experience periods of melancholy, feeling that no one understands how hard they are trying and how important their contributions have been...

    Been thinking about this on and off, 6 doesn't really fit at all, I figure that since his MBTI is so obvious, his enneagram must be something common to ISTJs.

    4 seems to fit squidward reasonably well, he seems to have an idealized self, he's attracted to classy things. And the whole musical instrument deal:

    Fours typically have problems with a negative self-image and chronically low self-esteem. They attempt to compensate for this by cultivating a Fantasy Self—an idealized self-image which is built up primarily in their imaginations. A Four we know shared with us that he spent most of his spare time listening to classical music while fantasizing about being a great concert pianist—à la Vladimir Horowitz. Unfortunately, his commitment to practicing fell far short of his fantasized self-image, and he was often embarrassed when people asked him to play for them. His actual abilities, while not poor, became sources of shame.
    That sounds right, no?

    Also, I suspect that Patrick is an ENFP just like spongebob.

    The rejection of Squidward as a 4 comes partially through his MBTI. If we assume he is ISTJ, then it becomes difficult to type him as a 4, even with a 3-wing present.

    If we consider the dynamics of the Enneagram, then typing becomes easier. The MBTI is completely lacking in dynamics. Even Jungian typology has its dynamic component (repressed functions). The MBTI offers nothing more than a static archetypal description.

    It also helps to take Riso's descriptions of disintegration seriously. This is the dynamic component. Assuming that Squidward is a relatively "unhealthy" variant of his type (let's say, level 4 or 5), then consider how the E-4 looks when moving to 2. Take the 4 at level 5 for example when it moves to 2:

    "They dwell on their feelings and fantasies and have trouble maintaining interest in others except inasmuch as they may want to talk about their issues and desires. This causes others to avoid Fours, which inevitably produces stress and fears of abandonment. Fours respond by hovering around and intruding themselves into others' lives like average Twos. They become clinging and possessive of those people whom they still feel comfortable with and who are willing to support the Four's fantasies. They being to find ways to 'be needed' and do not like to let the people they care about out of their sight for long."

    That doesn't sound like Squidward. The 1 deteriorating to 4, described in my previous comment, sounds exactly like Squidward. My comments about his 9-wing above also sound like Squidward, especially when considering his conflicts with his neighbors' personalities.

    Edit - treat personality dynamically, not as a static archetype. The Enneagram works very well for producing dynamic descriptions of type.
