    Default What MBTI and/or Enneagram do I sound like?

    I've had some confusion about my type on either MBTI or the Enneagram. I've taken several tests, read many descriptions, and have the book "Personality Types". I've been told I was 3 different types for MBTI and 2 different ones for Enneagram. I figured I'd just tell about a typical day and how my reactions to things and my interactions with people are. Ask any and all questions you might have.

    So, my normal day contains work, so I have to get up early. Early=before 9:30. I don't get up until the very last minute because I'm not getting paid for the time my job is taking away from my morning for me to get ready for it, nor the time it takes away from my night by making me go to bed before I'd like, so I go to bed as late as I can without being too tired and minimize the time between getting up and going to work.

    I wake up at 7:40 when my alarm goes off. It is set to the local rock station because rock is the closest to the music I like. I shut it off within a couple seconds after it going off and never hit snooze. I don't want it annoyingly going off again. It's bad enough that it had to go off once. I set it at 7:40 so I can lay in bed awake a while before getting up. I'm supposed to be at work at 8, but I usually end up getting up at 8 because I've been going in 15-45 minutes late every day for the last couple years and have never heard a thing about it. I still email my morning clock-in time as 8, though, because my job consists of answering technical support calls and I often get calls before and at 8 on my cell phone that, as far as HR and my boss knows, I answered, and therefore need to get paid for.

    I get up, grab a pair of pants and shirt from the closet, get my socks on, then go out to the kitchen and pour some coffee. It has a scheduled brew so it starts brewing at 7:30 every morning. It's nice. I then get my wallet (says Bad Mother Fucker on it), 32 GB flash drive, name tag, company cell phone, $160 sunglasses, dinky 2 GB MP3 player that I got for Christmas with my $300 ear phones (Etymotic ER-4P), turn it on listening to usually Progressive Metal, Symphonic Metal, or Power Metal, and walk to work. It takes 12 minutes to walk from my front door to the time clock near my office.

    My job consists of answering the phone for technical support and apparently being a psychiatrist to the people who have emotional responses to their technical issues. This is what my co-worker says, anyway. We usually have disagreements about it. He's more of a people-pleasing "good customer service" type person. I just want to fix their computer's problem and they should be mature enough to not need me to make them feel better about it. It's work for Pete's sake. Leave your personal issues at home. In fact, I'd rather they don't call me at all and just fix their own computer problems. Just pay me to sit here and surf the web. Or better yet, to stay home. I'm typing all this at work. And I hate it when people I'm talking to don't listen to what I say. I said to click on Start, not some other thing that you think will fix it. You called me to fix it, so let me do it and follow what I say. I also manage the servers and user accounts and email. High School is my highest level of education.

    I find humor in things like Somethingawful.com and Weird Al and thereifixedit.com. I like things that make fun of things. I also like things that offend others because it offends them.

    My desk is usually messy with papers laying around that I haven't touched in a while. As long as they aren't in the way and I haven't decided that I don't need them anymore, they stay there. I'd rather eat fast food than cook. I wouldn't mind watching a movie every night. I like playing RPGs (not online, I like the turn-based one-player ones) and watching anime (Japanese how it was intended with subtitles, not English).

    When driving, I used to always go as close to the exact speed limit as possible and use the cruise control whenever I'm going for more than a mile at the same speed. I now always go 5 over the speed limit because I can always get away with it. I always use my blinker and always obey every rule of the road except music volume, which I turn down when I pass a cop. I have to let the people I drive by hear what real music is. I get very annoyed at every person who fails to use a turn-signal, accelerates too slow after a stop, slows down too much to turn, turns too slow, pulls out way too close in front of me and then fails to match my speed, FAILS TO YIELD AT A FREAKIN' YIELD SIGN, rides my tail when I'm already going 5 over the speed limit, tries to bully their way in front of me when it's my turn to go (even though I ignore them and make them slam on their breaks when they see I'm not being intimidated out of the way, and I've never been in an accident in my 8 years of driving), among other things. I usually wish I had supernatural powers during those times and I honestly would use them to blow up their car off the road if I could.

    I live with my fiancée and her daughter and we have a son. My fiancée is an ISFJ and we believe a 6w7. Our usual arguments are over how much time I spend on the computer versus with her, me "grilling" her about things when I'm just asking questions to understand her, "defending" other people who she perceived as rude to her when it seems like there was just a misunderstanding and they probably weren't intending to be rude. She also seems to hate talking about things in very much depth and wants to end any disagreement as soon as it starts, which is very frustrating to me since I want to resolve it to both of our satisfaction. I usually look at the negative when trying to decide if we should do or get something, and look at the positive once we've done it or gotten it.

    I can't think of anything else right now. Please read and ask questions and give your opinions. Looking back, this whole things sounds rather negative. Maybe I'm just in a negative mood. We just got back from camping and I don't want to be back at work. Plus my son and fiancée are sick and she wants me to take a half day to come home and help her out after I just took 2 vacation days for camping and it's busy here. I really do love her and my family and I think most people think I'm nice and get along with me. I guess the negative just stands out to me.

    My impression is ISTJ.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    As of now I see IxTP. S and N is tricky. Lemme get back to you on that 'x'. Or I suppose a probing question should be asked.

    Which one sounds more like you. When you are looking at something do you see what is, meaning the literal object, or do you see what could be i.e. what the object represents? I'll also add that this is an immediate reaction. Do you automatically do the first, or second? Of course I could be wrong. So not corresponding with either of those descriptions very well is a welcome answer, too.

    Ha ha.

    I don't know what your type is, but I relate to almost everythingEDIT: lots of the things you said.

    Especially THIS:

    ISTP

    P - because not concerned with being to work on time; drives over the speed limit, messy desk
    SP - really not into work, much rather be doing ANYTHING else, just wants to watch movies every night, desire to escape, experience pleasure
    I - not interested in interacting with people on the phone (probably not best job for you)
    T - not interested in talking to others about feelings - not overly sympathetic (or interested) in their problems. Get to the problem at hand and fix it.
    S - literal - "I told you what the problem is" Get it? Computer techs are often Ss. Deal with concrete problems and clearly defined solutions. Not theoretical.

    Just what I picked up from post. Oh yeah. If I didn't mention it - sounds SP because of rebellious streak and a possible unhappiness at not being able to play more? Of course, this is all speculative.

    ISTP corresponds with type 5 and 6 - both head types.
    Yeah. Your description sounded Fiveish. You're not interested in emotions. more cerebral. Detached. Just want to be left alone without intrusions of others (customers). But you also seem Sixish with your rebellious streak. Pushing the limits if only slightly.

    I'd guess 5 with 6 or 6 with 5 wing.

    Best to read descriptions from Russo Hudson to know for sure.

    I'm not sure if you're referring to me ---it's a painting of Joan of Arc. I like it.

    The interesting thing is if he's actually ISTP (as Applied Orange suggested), he would also most likely be a 5 or 6.

    S? Well, that's a surprise. No one's ever suggested that before.

    @ReflecttcelfeR

    So, when I look at something... Let's see... I guess I see both. I look at this empty cup here and this is what goes through my mind:

    One of my favorite cups.
    Holds a good amount, but not as much as some others.
    Good for filling with water and taking to bed, but not for when you are really thirsty. That takes one of the bigger cups.
    Good for any kind of liquid, actually. Some, like the small glasses, are milk or orange juice cups.
    One of Nichole's.
    Plastic.
    See-through.
    Goes together with Nichole's blue plastic cups of the same shape and size.
    This one has flip-flops on it (I used this cup for months before realizing this).

    If I look at something else... (something I didn't think of while writing this):

    Black.
    Built it with Nichole and accidentally put the bottom panel on backwards so it isn't black.
    Bookshelf.
    Has the kids' books on the shelves.
    Has the aquarium on it.
    About hip-high.
    Justin always grabs the books on it and rips them, so we took our books off and left only the kids' ones on because we were tired of getting him in trouble over it.
    Wooden.

    However, I might think of the back story of these objects first because I'm so used to them that I don't notice the physical properties of them right away. Just like I'm typing right now by thinking of the letters and pressing them, not thinking of where the letters are. It might work better if it is an object that I haven't seen before. What do you think?

    @Onceajoan Applied Orange suggested ISTJ. Also

    S - literal - "I told you what the problem is" Get it? Computer techs are often Ss. Deal with concrete problems and clearly defined solutions. Not theoretical.
    This is usually because I want to get the call over with as quickly as possible and get back to what I was doing. Don't know if that makes a difference.

    My gut feeling is that you're ENTP or ENFP EDIT: some kind of ExxP, and probably an Enneagram 7.

    I don't have a lot of confidence in that feeling yet, I don't have the energy or the patience to explain it point by point right now.

    I'll probably have to ask more questions.

    Maybe I'll get back to it later.

    I see the beginning as very sensual, which links towards Se which would lead to the SP, more so than the NP. However you mentioning the back story leans itself more to Si, which in turn leans you towards the SJ's. I'd say it's a toss up between SJ and SP. Most definitly T and I. I see more Se than I do Si and so in my opinion I say ISTP.
