    Default Hey guys :) New INFJ here

    Hey guys

    So I came across a few interesting threads from this website decided to join the club. I'm familiar with MBTI. I've known about it for about 5 years now so I'm surprised I didn't run into this website when my MBTI obsession first started 5 years ago. But what's enneagram and socionics? I was asked what my enneagram and socionics types were when I made my accounts but I didn't know what they were. I tried googling enneagram and found some quiz but I don't really think any of the types really fit me very well. Hmm...idk. Oh well. In my opinion, the myers briggs test is what's been the absolute most accurate personality test, at least that I've taken so far.

    Anyways. Looking forward to meeting you all!!

    Enneagram is about your motivation mainly and socionics is pretty much just MBTI with a few tricky changes in it.

    Welcome!

    Welcome to the forums!

    I can't speak to socionics, but I've heard it said that the Enneagram deals with...basically what Planetary Walker said. Each type is centered around a primary motivator for the one typed. Fours, for instance, have a pervading desire to be unique, and so tend to make for creative people.

    Hi and welcome! People here talk a lot about both socionics and enneagram and I am sure you'll get some basic info in the subforms. In a shortcut enneagram is a personality theory, that devides people to 9 types based on their basic natural fear and their motivation how to avoid experiencing this fear. Based on this you can get 9 different psychological profiles, it's pretty interesting mostly when it comes to development of your personality.
    Socionics is a lot like MBTI. MBTI was created based on Jung's pervious work of cognitive functions so was socionics. The only difference is MBTI's E/I and P/J dichtonomies were added by Myers and Briggs so socionics doesn't work with them in the MBTI sense, but comes back to Jung's perception of functions and types more. For example you as MBTI INFJ would be most likely be socionics INFp.

    Enneagram is awesome. I'm not a Socionics fan yet. Welcome to the forum!

    First and foremost, thank you all for all of the wonderful welcomes.

    Fears and motivations. Hmm, that's interesting. That definitely gives some more insight into the descriptions I was reading through. And MBTI with a twist? Okay, cool, definitely looking into it. Thanks everyone for the explanations! Looking forward to looking through the subforums SophiaDeep mentioned!
