    Default n00b no more.

    Hello,

    I'm Jake. I'm fairly new to MBTI.

    Initially my concern was that 16 types wouldn't adequately define the range of human personalities, but the more I interact with other people interested in MBTI, the more it becomes clear that an individuals type, based on the 4 dichotomies, has everything to do with measurable response to social and intellectual behavior. Now, I'm not seeing people loosely fit into these 16 different types here or there, I'm having epiphanies and unlocking a greater understanding of how to be a better friend to these very different types of minds in my life. I'm looking forward to learning more about myself and those around me and I'm confident that MBTI is the key.

    Hey JJ, welcome bro!

    You seem fairly wise indeed about the relevancy and healthy usage of mbti as a tool for greater personal and social growth. I notice the majority of new posters take quite a while for these kinds of things to really sink in (some members spend quite a long time on our ventrilo server for instance asking some of the older members what their type is). Perhaps you'd like to join us there sometime (p.s. friday is kareoke night, i know you love to sing) Always room for an enneagram 3 :P

    ESTP corresponds Enneagram 7w8.
    It is interesting you are an ESTP with the shadow Enneagram 3w2.

    It's the Third most common Enneagram for ESTP apparently. QED

    More accurately, I think MBTI is the tool with which you can craft the key. It requires a certain degree of craftmanship to make it a good fit, but it is in no means as simple as 'voila, all is revealed'.
