    Default Types and mistypes

    Which MB, Enneagram, and Socionics types have you ever considered for yourself? What types have been suggested by others?

    I shall start, then.

    MBTI
    Originally tested as: INFP
    Additionally tested as: ENFP, ISFP, ESFP
    Personally considered: INFP, ENFP, ISFP
    Suggested by family and friends: ENFP, INFP
    Suggested by forum members: Every F type. Really.

    Enneagram
    Originally tested as: 4w3
    Additionally tested as: 9w1, 9w8, 4w5, 2w1, 2w3
    Personally considered: 9w1, 9w8, 4w3, 6w7, 7w6
    Suggested by family and friends: N/A
    Suggested by forum members: 9w1, 4w3, 6w7, 6w5, 2w3

    Instinctual Variant
    Originally tested as: sx/so
    Additionally tested as: so/sx, sp/sx
    Personally considered: so/sx, sx/so, so/sp
    Suggested by family and friends: N/A
    Suggested by forum members: so/sx, so/sp, sp/so

    Socionics

    Suggested by forum members: EII, IEI, SEI


    Current typing: INFP, EII Ne, 9wx/4w3/6w7 in some order, so/sx


    How much influence do other people have on what types you consider for yourself? Do your friends and family see you differently than forum members (for instance, family and friends seeing INFP and ENFP, forum members seeing INFP and ISFJ)?

    Discuss.

    discuss. discuss. discussing. Sure.

    I've (seriously) considered every type set except SFJs and NFPs (which my phone auto corrects to BROs for some reason). The most common suggestions I've received are INTP, INTJ, ISTJ, and ISTP. The people of this forum are the only ones to suggest ENTP consistently and the only one to entertain ENFP as a serious possibility. Wonder why...

    I have (seriously) considered every enneagram type except 2.
    The most common suggestions I've received are 5w6, 7w8, and 9w8.

    How much influence do other people have on what types you consider for yourself?
    Starting points, sounding boards, and costume ideas. I lost my faith somewhere on the trail between then and now.

    I've never mistyped.

    Any type I've been is just where I'm at with that moment.

    Never been mistyped. Except..
    .


    Nope cant recal. Everyone pretty much agrees with my typing. I feel like a poster child really.

    At the beginning when I had still N/S essentially meaning depth/lack of depth ingrained in my mind, I was averse to a few ESFP typings I got. Actually my first experience on Vent was being interrogated by a bunch of forum members asking why I identified as ENFP...and a few people said I didn't want to type as ESFP because of that bias. But I had already overcome that bias by then lol. It's weird though because at first I was offered so/sx as a suggestion a lot, but after these past 3 years I don't get it as much.

    Then I went through this phase of just going with whatever shiny new idea was presented to me...I feel like all the Type Me threads I made were really 7 sx in the sense that I was hopping from one idea to the next without allowing any of them to stabilize. If someone wrote out an interesting rationale that caught my eye, I'd go like "oooh you've convinced me!" and change to that...and then change to something else after like a week. Things like that are what made me consider sp/so for myself.

    Eventually though I settled in ENFP 7w6 sx/so 728 tritype. I dunno how I just decided I was good with that, I think it was just always in the back of my mind as I explored my understanding of myself. Although I genuinely did think I was 7 so for a while...but in the end the 7 sx archetype fit me more than 7 so, and sx/so fits me more overall I think. I feel like I have @Starry to thank for that since she just watched over me the whole time with my type in the back of her mind and let me arrive here myself...with maybe a little push here or there.

    So yeah...true to type I think I've been highly suggestible. It's really hard for me to be averse to new suggestions.

    I think I still wish I could be some kind of ENFJ 2w3 sx/so seductress though.

    Mm, I think you're ENTP but not exactly like a poster child. At least on here, you give off more of an ESTP persona.

    MBTI:

    ESTP, ENTP, ENTJ, ENFP, ISTJ

    Enneagram:

    1, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8.

    I quit the enneagram after four years of that.

    Instincts:

    Never mistyped. Instinctual stacking is very obvious.



    All N type suggestions came from people who thought I was too intelligent to be a sensor. ESTP is what tests default to for me unless I purposely manipulate my answers. ENFP was based on a video I made very early on when I started getting into MBTI.

    ISTJ came from someone at random, with no justification.

    Personally considered: 5w4, 1w9, 4w5, 4w3
    Suggested by others: none really, other than someone thinking I was so/sp a while back, and my now agreeing

    Socionics
    Personally considered: meh
    Suggested by others: IEI

    An INTP thought I was an INTP, my nfj friends think I'm nfj, or they think I 'used to be' and now am not, and my family is completely uninterested in mbti, and the only thing my mom can say of me when I was young is I was 'sensitive' and when really young, friendly and unafraid of strangers. So... eh.

    I take the input of other people, though filter out any bias they may have. I also often think mbti is more useful for those who want to use it to make sense of me or others, so if they want to think of me as type xxxx, I can't really stop them from doing so, but they also may then be totally wrong if they interpret everything I do based on what they think I am. I consider myself what I've finally landed on, though....I think holistically it makes a lot of sense.
