    Question Do you identify more with your MBTI type or your Enneagram type?

    Yes.. and yes..

    I think eNFj and 6w5 in conjunction, paint an exceptionally accurate portrayal of who I am both on the surface and deep inside.

    Equally, because I only make sense in both dimensions.

    I am not sure yet about what my enneagramm type is, although some have tried to help me here on this forum to pin it down (apparently I am supposed to be a type 9). Reason is why I don't feel safe with it yet is that I did not get that feel of "THAT'S ME!" with enneagramm type descriptions yet, and I tend to score on tests also on different types often.

    With MBTI it was different. I test consistently as INFP and I can very well identify with most things of descriptions.

    My enneatype. I think it identify more meaningfull characteristics than MBTI do. MBTI is not enough stable and assumes that we always behave in the same way, wich is wrong for a stong part of peoples.

    You sound just like me, just flip the INFP for INTJ.

    Enneagram makes so much more sense to me, it shows different levels of growth and personal responsibility meaning you don't need to fit with everything to be able to see where you slot within the Enneagram. I had a tough time recognising myself within the Enneagram initially, as much as I tested consistently as 7 I thought I identified more as 5 because of behavioural things, it took recognising my internal preferences even if I don't use them. Enneagram gives me a lot more understanding of how to grow for the better. In ways I have more in commone with any ExxP E7w8 than an ENTP non-E7.

    Enneagram without question.

    Enneagram and MBTI in concert together describe me the best.
