This is really a call to the State I Am In to come in here and straighten it out.
As you all know, I have a very definite borderline split between my extroverted primary function and my introverted secondary function. No matter where or how I test, my Ni and Fe are rated at nearly the same strength, with one passing the other, depending on which "mode" I'm in (thanks to Udog for pointing that out).
I know that Fe is my default mode and that I operate in it at any given moment, but I also notice that it takes absolutely nothing to bump me into Ni, or to have the two swap places a million times during the day in a rather schizophrenic dance.
As far as the enneagram goes, I test as a 2, which doesn't surprise me, as I'm constantly operating with a "help others" vibe running beneath the entire system. I think the "first do no evil" motto works well there (even though it seems to contrast starkly with my need to bring everything within my dominion - someone once told me that ENFJs are the benevolent dictators, and I had to laugh because I can't refute it). But the type 2 never felt comfortable to me.
So, I've tested as a 4 about as much as a 2. I *highly* relate to the description of fours. The artistic nature, the up-down energy.
Mashing the two together would be my entirety. If I were unaware of the enneagram (or MBTI et al), I would chose type 4 as me while asking myself where the caring is. This has made me insane.Type 4 – Fe manifests as a sense of how things should be both for the individual as well as their environment in a rather self oriented manner, insisting on aesthetics, conventions, and their unique tastes. These ENFJs can be very elitist and feel very passionately about these things. Type 4 ENFJs tend to have a notably strong Ni that can often confuse them with INFJs or INFPs.
There has been mention of an ENFJ Ni-subtype. Anyone familiar with that?
