    In wonder how MBTI and socionics correlates with enneagram types - I got a 5 on this enneagram test: (Enneagram Personality Type Indicator).

    It was one of the most accurate descriptions of my personality that I've ever read. My second highest score was for the type 8, which was not as descriptive of me as the type 5. I think I read somewhere that a 5 on the enneagram correlates with INTJ, but I'm not sure.

    Many INTPs are also 5s. I'm 5w4, for example.

    I know of some INFJs who are 4w5. I don't know how common it is.

    I looked really quickly online, and I can't figure out what the "w" stands for - I only see the 9 different types. So what's the "w" and the second number?

    It stands for wing, and it's your secondary type, I guess you could say. Has to be "next to" your main type.

    I don't know much about enneagram though!

    You're right. I should change it to plain INTP even though I don't understand why I have Ti *shrug*

    I'm definitely not an MBTI INTJ.

    Does Socionics or MBTI actually correlate with enneagram? I could never see how because enneagram has too many variables.

    MBTI types and Socionics types seem to be exactly the same, the only difference is the way they explain the functions. INxJs have Fi in Socionics, but it's not the same Fi as in MBTI, so it actually fits. When someone types differently in the two systems, I am tempted to think that they have mistyped in one of them, probably in MBTI. Or they are close to the 50 percent mark in whatever letter has changed.

    This profile is spot on for me Ethical-Intuitive Intratim - INFj (The Empath). And the other Introvert profiles fit the Introverts I know as well.

I think I'm right on the border with T/F - I do feel things to a great degree, but I always use logic when it comes to actually making decisions (because I don't want to do anything stupid).

    Jack Flak - what made you think so? Probably the signature?

    ETA: Well I don't ALWAYS use logic (who does?), but the most important decisions in my life have been made using logic.
    You ought to read Socionics profiles now, especially at wikisocion. That place is superb.

    Socionics descriptions are top quality in my opinion. Nothing MBTI has really come close. MBTI and Socionics types are quite similar, but Soncs has organization to it and explains relationships to all functions in depth, giving real logical analysis and accuracy to their assumptions. MBTI isn't less of a science because of this, given that Soncs derived from it. MBTI just clashes more by denying a lot of facts. I have respect for both yet one is quite more methodical.

    I agree. The eight function breakdown is cool and quite accurate. I also think subtypes are pretty grand. But MBTI is more popular

    I'm an ENTp (ILE) in Socionics.
