    Default ENFPs (or NFs) and Enneagrams

    I'll be honest, I think I know a lot of about MBTI.... but I just don't understand Enneagrams. Can anyone help me along this process?

    I've taken an online test and I don't agree with result. I read some of the possible results, but then found out there are wings? >.<

    So confusing.

    What enneagrams are ENFPs mostly?

    How does it relate to MBTI?

    ENFPs tend to be 7s and 4s mostly (from what I've seen). I'm an 8w7.

    The simplest way I have to see it is.....MBTI describes cognition, and Enneagram behavior. It basically illustrates the divide between what you think and what you do, how you approach reality.

    what do you think you are? what did the test tell you?

    i'm 7w6...we seem to be the lighter version of enfp...or something...if that makes sense.

    I got seven, if Im correct.

    Don't get me wrong, I agree with a lot of it, however I lean think I may be more three than seven. And this is without getting into any of the advanced parts of it.

    I really wish there was some half-7 half-3 thing.

    And to be completely honest that doesn't make sense. I have not been look at enneagram stuff that long though, so maybe I just need to research it more.

    Think of what you social motivators, if you will are. As a 7 I try to run away from pain, but more than being concerned with pain I'm concerned of seeming like I'm in pain to others, because I'm an 8 (8s need to feel strong).

    Or maybe that's just my half-arsed incorrect analysis of it.

    hmm...well...it seems 4 enfps are a bit more intense...while 7's are all jokey and light hearted most of the time...not that the intensity isn't there...it's just that it's less comfortable for us to go there with the majority of people....we like to be up...everythings fine n good...if it's not...it's okay because it will be...while 4s will embrace every emotion fully...not running from pain...just sit with it and feel.

    My motivation is my passion. Its what keeps me going. I like how 7s see beauty in the world and are awed by the simple things in life, so am I.

    The part where I differ completely with 7s is the scatterbrainedness. I actually connect more with 3s here. I'm extremely ambitious and shoot for what I want and I dont stop. I'm very organized and normally have multiple backup plans. I refuse to be "average" or even "above-average." I want to be the top.

    hmm...maybe you are 3...i'd go by what descriptions fit rather than what you got on the test.

    I have seen a lot of 7w8 ENFP that are not scatterbrained at all...very focused & driven. Powerhouses really.
