    Default Think I figured this out (with the help of a relative)

    I figured it'd be good to ask someone in real life for some help with my mbti/enneagram type, so I asked a relative to read through some definitions, & I took down some notes. Here's what they thought.


    MBTI-
    Functions (in no certain order):
    Ni
    Fe
    Se (by a little)
    Ti


    Enneagram-
    Most like me:
    4, 7, 8

    Sounds like me:
    2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8

    Doesn't sound like me:
    1, 9

    Instinctual Variants:
    So/Sp/Sx

    The relative is an ENFP type 9 (if that matters at all). lol

    Listen, can you fill out a questionnaire and post it here?
    I'm not taking your relative's word for it.

    Sure, what one you suggest? I never feel objective enough to come across like my complete self on them, though.

    I'm not confident on any certain type, really.

    2) What do you yearn for in life? Why?
    Creativity, freedom, nice things, good positive people to be around, generosity, being able to travel, nice car & house, to find myself & express myself, to help people, to learn to be independent. That's all I can think of for now, but I'm sure there's a lot more. I guess I just want to be myself, experience a lot, & enjoy myself.

    3) Think about a time where you felt like you were at your finest. Tell us what made you feel that way.
    I have no idea. Is that bad? lol I feel good telling rude people off.

    4) What makes you feel inferior?
    Being talked down to, people having power over me, being embarrassed.

    5) What tends to weigh on your decisions? (Do you think about people, pro-cons, how you feel about it, etc.)
    How it will effect myself & other people, long term effects, & the feeling it gives me.

    6) When working on a project what is normally your emphasis? Do you like to have control of the outcome?
    Making it look/sound good & putting my own spin on it. I mean, I want it to go smoothly & turn out good. It'd like it to turn out how I envision it.

    7) Describe a time where you had a lot of fun. How is your memory of it?
    I have a lot of fun any time I'm spending down time with friends hanging out & not having to worry about class work or anything else. There's lots of things that are fun. Dances at school are fun, going to cedar point around Halloween with the haunted houses, & just having really good conversations.

    8) When you want to learn something new, what feels more natural for you?
    Depends what it is. I research a lot of psychology stuff, so for that it's reading on my own time. For sports or musical instruments, it would be hands-on learning. Studying for tests would just be to read my notes over & over to myself (I can't study for tests out loud with other people). I'm an auditory learner in class, though (definitely over book learning or worksheets).

    9) How organized do you think of yourself as?
    My stuff's usually neat & clean. I'm not always great at writing things down, so I usually just remember things off the top of my head.

    10) How do you judge new ideas? You try to understand the principles behind it to see if they make sense or do you look for information that supports it?
    The principles behind it, I guess. That & how they'll be for people. Also, how interesting they are.

    11) You find harmony by making sure everyone is doing fine and belonging to a given group or by making sure that you follow what you believe and being yourself?
    Making sure they're happy, getting along, having no unnecessary drama, & that I'm having a good time, relaxed, & being myself.

    12) Are you the kind that thinks before speaking or do you speak before thinking? Do you prefer one-on-one communication or group discussions?
    I'd say speak before thinking. I've put my foot in my mouth quite a bit. One-on-one because it's more personal/meaningful or groups of 5 people or less.

    13) Do you jump into action right away or do you like to know where are you jumping before leaping? Does action speaks more than words?
    I'll jump in right away, if needed, but I'd like a little knowledge on what I'm doing. Action backs up words.

    14) It's Saturday. You're at home, and your favorite show is about to start. Your friends call you for a night out. What will you do?
    Go out. I might be a little disappointed about my show at first, but I'd catch up on it another time. It'd probably be more fun to go out.

    15) How do you act when you're stressed out?
    Temperamental, sleeping a lot, late to places, fall behind on work, over indulge on things, do other things to keep my mind off it, over think & analyze, turn to bad thoughts.

    16) What makes you dislike the personalities of some people?
    If they're bossy, control freaks, don't have a sense of humor, take things too seriously.

    17) Is there anything you really like talking about with other people?
    No, it depends on the person. I'm constantly talking about so many different things with people.

    18) What kind of things do you pay the least attention to in your life?
    No clue. Does that show my lack of attention to it? lol

    19) How do your friends perceive you? What is wrong about their perception? What would your friends never say about your personality?
    Kind, caring, insightful, fun, funny, giving, understanding, original (at least I'm hoping they'd say these things). Don't know. People don't always know how feisty, competitive, & serious I can be.

    20) You got a whole day to do whatever you like. What kind of activities do you feel like doing?
    Playing basketball, soccer, shopping, going out to eat, going to an outdoor concert, all while on vacation in a new place.

    Wouldn't be surprised if you're enneagram 4.

    Definitely SP...

    Meaning Se dom or aux.

    I am leaning towards ISTP or ESTP.

    Take a look at these videos to see if you resonate:





    To me, I cannot differentiate your preference for Fi vs. Fe & Ti vs. Te.
    However, if you use Fi more than Fe, Te more than Ti, consider ESFP or ISFP.

    I will state that it is highly unlikely that you are ENFP, INFP, ISTJ, ESTJ, ENTP, INTP, ESFJ, or ISFJ-- due to preference for Se.

    Questionnaires are literally just asking for your favorite flavor of ice cream, or sharing "what you value in a puppy dog." It's all just touching yourself, regurgitating the same incomprehensible self-help jargon that has no logical meaning.





    Here's an example of a question that indicates Cognitive Functions:

    An emo chick walks in front of you, whining very loudly about how her dog died.

    If you slap her in the face, you're probably a strong Ti-valuer.
    If you listen to her crying and sympathize with it, you're probably a strong Fi-valuer.

    Post 5 that you do not think describe you
