    Default Susan Cain

    Is Susan Cain an ENFJ...? She defines herself as an introvert though?

    She reminds me of Lisa Kudrow... in pictures/videos. It seems that she knows herself well... I'd go with INFP. I also see her nervous attempts at Fe appearing unnatural. Sweet, likable lady, though.

    She self identifies as INFP:
    I actually have shared my MBTI — I’m an INFP. (though very close to the J side. I’m a ridiculously high scorer on the N and F though.)
    Which sounds about right to me.

If there aren't any, then there must be something wrong in the wording of either of the tests that mislead enneagram 4s... One thing that comes to my mind is that IxFP's mirror image functionwise is ExFJ... Perhaps that's what causing the overlap?
    She radiates something out...not isolated like an Fi-dom... Perhaps she yearns to be an INFP...

    Well, first, are you now of the opinion that I am ENFJ?

    Second, I don't see her as an extrovert. At least, I don't get any signs of it. I think I saw her in a ted talk years back. Considering she wrote a book on introversion, and self identifies with it, I really strongly suspect she is correct in her self assesment. With that said, introversion/extroversion in the classical sense is not directly linked with MBTI. Even considering that though I don't see her as an Xe lead. Doesn't make sense.
    MBTI: ExxJ tetramer
    Functions: Fe > Te > Ni > Se > Si > Ti > Fi > Ne
    Enneagram: 1w2 - 3w4 - 6w5 (The Taskmaster) | sp/so
    Socionics: β-E dimer | -
    Big 5: slOaI
    Temperament: Choleric/Melancholic
    Alignment: Lawful Neutral
    External Perception: Nohari and Johari

    Very obvious INFP to me. Her 1st and 2nd cognitive functions are clearly visible : Fi & Ne. @yeghor : what she radiates is Ne (very notable around 1:15 when she talks about the book intended as an empowerment for the people reading it).
    Reminds me of Lisa Kudrow as well.

    Strongly agree with her statement that we need to plan more solitude in our weekends (even extraverts as she said).

    Don't know... Fi users have more piercing gaze... Her eyes are all droopy, mesmerizing... they are "caring" eyes... Her way of talking is also hypnotizing...
    @meowington would you be interested to take this test... I am wondering about the mbti types of enneagram 2s and 3s...

    She's really hot actually You described her well.
    Isn't droopy, mesmerizing and caring eyes almost a trademark of all NFs ?
    I often get from others that I have a piercing gaze as well, or that I have "talking" eyes according to the Chinese. But when I'm thinking, or more likely intuiting, I often have a droopy, stonerlook in my eyes. I think it changes a bit based on what I'm doing.

    I'm really fond of people who have a hypnotizing way of talking.

    Did the test again (same result) : EII-1Ne (INFj)
    Does this fit with other 2s ?

    I turned out to be an EII-0... I think INFJ type must be concentrated somewhere around enneagram 1 and 2... like 1w2 or 2w1... Cause ennea 1 supplies the superego complex whereas 2 supplies the caring complex...

    The problem is there aren't so many 2s around appearently...
