Thread: ISFP and enneagram type

    Default ISFP and enneagram type

    Hey- I'm just trying to see how enneagram type colors things. For example, I'm a 4w5 and I know a lot of ISFPs are 9w8. Sure, aspects of these types are similar, but overall, no. My main motivation is to express myself, to be unique, while a 9 is to maintain the peace, blend in, correct? I've had real-life interactions with a 9, and this was a major point of contention for the two of us. I can get very dramatic and 'look at me' when highly stressed, like this: cate blanchett(bob dylan) while he completely submerges, like this: christian bale at 1:40 (He'll say he'll call back, but it's just to get away from the drama.)

    Would you say either type is more or less ISFP, as far as profile descriptions go? Have any of you guys had interactions with ISFPs who seemed so different than you, basically because of what you suspect to be an enneagram difference?

    The type 4 ISFPs are really different I've noticed. I'm a 9w8.

    I relate most to 9w8. I think 4 sounds more like MBTI INFP as far as the descriptions go. 9w8 is kind of leaning on ISTP. I do both of those things, but more often I will look for space.

    I'm 9w8, but I should re-test. I would agree that 9w8 might be more ISTP like though.

    So what you're saying here is 9w8 is more on the ISFP/ISTP divide while the 4 would be more on the ISFP/INFP.... yet there are 9 INFPs... (Although I think it's more typical to be 9w1).

    Yeah, there seems to be a lot of type 9 INFPs..

    I'm sure blackcat or wolfy could talk about ISFP 9w8 more. I haven't taken a lot of time to look into the enneagram, so I'm not a good judge on it.

    I'm a 4w3 kind of ISFP. I would say that tends to make me lean towards the whole INFP sector only because a lot of INFPs are 4's. I can't say anything else, the wise old men up there already spoke the truth

    I'm a type seven. Not sure about the wing, but it's probably six.
    I'm a little teapot, short and stout. Here is my handle and here is my spout. Every time I steam up, I give a shout. Just tip me over and pour me out.

    And as a type seven (or maybe three?) ISFP, I sometimes can be mistaken for an ESFP.
