    Default So I asked an old friend of mine to describe me, the way he has experienced me.

    From that description, what would you say my type (Ennea or MBTI, both appreciated) might have been then?

    First thing that comes to mind is the ease that you were radiating, e.g. when dealing with people, which seemed to come really natural to you. There have been always people around you, everybody "knew" you and vice versa. The "opposite of distanced" describes it quite well I guess.

    Then the ability to bring enthusiasm to everything, which brought some instability with it as the other half of the coin. With that maybe a grain of naivity and credulity, but I'm not sure if this was stronger in you than in others of your age.

    The above mentioned ease went hand in hand with carelessness, few thoughts about the future, better do something right now. And about do something right now, this has to be mentioned as well. You always had to be doing something. Not in the sense of hyperactivity but just not get bored. On the other hand there was self control, you never have been the guy for excesses of any sort. (at least that I know of )

    You've been the ever happy and ever nice guy.

    At last one thing that I'm aware of myself is, that there is a certain disability or desinterest to understand others deeper than just scratching the surface.
    Soooo, what do you guys think?

    "understand others deeper than just scratching the surface."
    ahem.. enfps are known as the VERY opposite of this.
    or so they claim to be, at least.
    sounds very esfp to me, they never dwell beyond the physical surface.

    just tell me, if you had to choose one to give up: your left eye or your imagination, which?

    as to your ennea, most likely 7 as you seem the live life to enjoy it kind, yes?

    EDIT:
    red your started threads, fanfiction? that answers my question i assume, unless your mature esfp with developed Ni.
    Ne can connect other peoples behavior and by using fi read their emotions, thus creating a deep view on other people which is not quite at all what esfp's do.

    if you use Ne: you enjoy creating imaginated things in your mind which you poses enormous need to share.

    The only thing you can tell from that description is that you're Get Things Going. That means you're either ESFJ, ESFP, ENFP, or ENTP. Can't tell anything more from that brief description, though.

    I guess I do. I ask my collegue at least twice a day things like "If you were a tree, which one would that be?" and more random stuff.
    Just today in another forum we had a discussion about energie resources.
    I've read earlier, that there have been plans to use very large kites and put them into the jetstream to generate electricity from that.

    And from that came combined with a different concept that has been proposed, the idea, to build a powerplant on a satellite, which has those kites hanging from it, directly into the jetstream.

    Ah well, stuff like that all the day, and sharing it mostly on the internet, as I only have one guy to talk to directly and he's an SJ...

    From what I've found out so far about me is, that I'm definitive E, definite N, borderline T/F, and definite P.
    I was hoping that the description from my friend would point toward T or F at some point.

    Edit:
    However, after reading more on the different functions, I think, that I use a lot more Fi than Ti, so if I had to say one or the other then I'd say ENFP and directly after that maybe.

    In the tests 7 always comes up equal strong as 9. Both far ahead of the rest. So either 7w8 or 9w8.
    Same indifference as in T/F.

    Ranked as follows: 7=9>>8=5>4>3>6=2>>1

    I'm going to agree with this. Here's the link for that- http://www.bestfittype.com/interactionstyles.html

    Have you ever actually looked into anything enneagram wise? Just from this I'd say you haven't... 7 and 9 are two really different types and any amount of research I'm sure would distinguish the two pretty quickly. The enneagram institute is a pretty legit source, one of the most legit internet sources I'd say. You'll always get the best information from books though IMO.

    What about Fi do you relate to? Why would you say you use that over Ti?

    I did. Quite a lot actually. I've read two books and talked a lot to my wife about it, who has been working with the enneagramm for 15+ years now.

    I was just stating, what the usual test results are.
    My wife thinks I'm a 7. I tend to agree, but there are so many 9ish things in me, that are really hard to ignore, so I'm just wondering that I might be a 9 who thinks that he's a seven, as this seems to be a 9ish trait as well.

    In Fi, i relate to the moral code. I have one, but now that I think of it, that might have been just some rules that I've rationalized at a point.

    Ah well fuck this.
    I'm ENTP 7w8.
    Deal with it!
