    And OP, ENFP's are talked about ALL the time. ENFP's and INT's i think are the three most talked about on this forum, and S types are rightly ignored altogether.

    To add to the thread in a more constructive way, I am told sometimes that someone is checking his own behavior, as they believe that I am dissecting them. In truth, I am dissecting them. I have studied psychology for some time, and while I can't help but notice constant patterns of behavior emerging, so are these categorized into possible meanings according to psychological theory and patterns that I have noticed myself. But, contrary to what they believe, (evident by the fact that they are apprehensive before me), I am not judging them by any means. Only recognizing and categorizing behavior.
    Last night at dinner a new acquaintance said, "I feel like you are studying or reading me, do you study psychology? [paraphrased:] and so I am apprehensive about my own words and actions." I was a bit taken back, and perhaps I should have reassured him that I am not psychoanalyzing...just eating pasta. But my curiosity got the best of me, and I replied:

    "Are you hiding something"?

    "No"

    "Then why the apprehension?"

    Yeah, I can relate to this 100%.

    Fortunately, it seems like most people I know sense that I'm not judging them.

    I am a 7w6. Enneagram is tricky with the wings and it took me forever to figure it out. I tested strongly as 2 before Lady Jaye - and frankly it made me mad. I was going through some super emotional things at the time and feeling taken advantage of, so I think that had something to do with it. I also have tested as 4 and disliked the 'emo' label. I tested originally as 7 but it seemed so cliche and I thought it was more a coming of age thing - most 'youngins' have a "seven like" period in their lives and I wanted to be grown.

    Sooooo, basically after a lot of re-testing and reading on type, I think 7 is a safe bet.

    I wish I were more 7 w 8 and that is bossy, in your face, and more classic ENFJ (haha) like but I am 7 w 6 and the description fits me well, especially the "a lot of comedians are 7 w 6" as we soften and redirect the harsher and scarier aspects of life through humor and reframing and underplay a sentinel like vigilance to life.
    Well now I feel like the weirdo ENFP. LOL. You may be on to something about the stress aspect, but I tested so strongly as a Two, I'm kind of surprised.

    That makes me feel a little better. lol Seven wasn't even in my top three! I had eight and four in a dead tie. Is there something odd about it not even showing up?!

    My wing is 8 too, however I have found that during epsiodes of depression etc I often type as a four, and I read somewhere that type 7s often do mistype as fours, courtesy of the shared sense of melancholy both can feel. I can be pretty assertive so I understand why my wing would be 8 but often I do feel as emotionally intense and as curiously unrelatable and different/isolated as a "typical" type four may feel.

    I'm confused, the wing is supposed to be how much you relate to the types on either side, or so I was led to believe. Being a type 7 I can be either 7 wing 6 or 7 wing 8, I am baffled as to how you could be a type 2 with a wing four or a wing 8, both are too far away. what website was this?

    i noticed that enfp's have a way of interpreting circumstances, that can manipulate the thoughts of the person they choose as long as that person was involved in those circumstances.

    It was something Jeffster threw at me. I have no idea which one, but I can ask. The way it was stated on the site, your highest score was your primary type, and your next highest score was your wing.

    It's the way they choose to interpret it. Like for instance I would be with an ENFP and say well what do you want to do? They would say I don't know or care. Then I'd suggest somewhere and we'd go. If they did not have a good time then they'd blame me for dragging them out when in fact they weren't forced to come. They can victimize themselves in quite the convincing fashion and say that they are not the one's at fault. Kind of like Heidegger's (sp) inauthentic person, stating that they are just victims of life and they have little or no control. BUT I know an ENFP who I respect a lot and he is truly a champion.
