    Default How does your particular typing (MBTI, E Type/Instinct) potentially conflict?

    Based off personal experience, and what sorts of things tend to run through your mind often enough to be noticed, do you personally think your particular typing arrangement (MBTI, Enneagram, Instinctual Variant) leave you at odds, internally conflicted at times? Or, do you feel it’s somewhere in the opposite direction, where your typing seems to run through you and express itself rather fluidly?

    For example, I feel at times, being an ENFP, Type 7, and So dominant leaves me frustrated and conflicted inside. I will share my experience and how I personally feel the typings intermingle once I get the chance tonight.

    ISTJs and so/sp are infamously impersonal, so a struggle for me is addressing people in a non-business manner.

    Well I'm an ENFP 6w7 sp/so.

    I have a bit of a contradictory view on independence and structure. I want to be a free spirit, free to drift between places, activities, and ideas. Yet , I am very much duty driven and I look for support from those around me. Like a 6, I tend to seek stability. However, my ENFPness seems to contribute to my anxiety manifesting as a distrust of systems and leadership and ideologies while I desire a lot of the structure and security that those things bring because it helps ease my anxious uncertainty about myself and the world around me.

    Being sx last is also apparently odd for an ENFP. But I don't really see contradictions there.

    Hmmm ive never really related much to ESFJ profiles that seem to be describing a 2w3 So/Sx ESFJ and Im a 9w8 Sx/So ESFJ so compared to the typical ESFJ I am more reserved and passive than the typical ESFJ as I don't seek to actively influence with Fe but more keep things peaceful and light so to speak. Plus being Sx first I consider people more important than community and that combo of being 9 and Sx first can make me seem quasi INFP at times.

    I'm a clusterfuck, even if I am mistyped somewhere. I can just feel it.

    I've entertained the notion of being numerous other types, yet my current typing feels the most consistently correct.

    My normal typing is ENTJ 8w7 sx/sp (albeit I'm willing to entertain sp/sx). It all seamlessly fits and resonates.

    But today, I'm trying on INFJ 4w3 so/sx because of a graveyard thread. After all, why not? It feels like a lovely fashion statement where MBTI type, core type and instinctual variants fit each other. As far as it fitting me, I'm willing to entertain the possibility, even though it's making me itchy in hard to scratch places.
