    I think that an MBTI type is more inclined to be a certain Enneagram type than another, but only in theory. I would say there is some correlation but it doesn't rule out that, in reality, anything is possible. I could see an INTP 4w5 definitely whose Ti adds some needed objectivity to the 4's (sometimes excessively) romanticized ways. ISTP would be a bit harder to picture as would 4w3 for either INTP or ISTP, but I'm not going to rule anything out completely since I feel like any MBTI and Enneagram combination could work. So I agree with what you're saying, minus the "zero correlation" part.

    Can you explain your view more in depth? I'm curious on this point especially because I think we may have this in common - I get along fine with 4s on an ordinary basis, but the idea of the type and the actual neurosis of it is repellant, when we get personal I can end up in a neverending argument with them because I'm all about controlling with mind and figuring things out, fixing problems, stuff you have to do to maintain a mindset to find truth, and the 4 seems like the utter opposite. I think the 4 is actually fixated on being truth, which makes an interesting counterpoint to 5.

    I actually made a thread about wings/core relation (Relation of wings to core) to explore the issue, but hadn't gone as much into depth as I could've.
    Thinking must serve the thinker.

    Just to contrast @Flatlander's post, I don't have that problem at all. 6s repel me more, actually.
