    Default How do N types live in highly traditionalist, insulated communities?

    I.e., suppose an xNxx lives in an Amish, Mennonite, or Fundamentalist Mormon community? How do they survive, cope, etc? Are they more likely than S types (specifically SJ types) to leave these communities?

    Oooohh, this is a good question. I actually think that Ns could be equally as drawn to such communities because of an attractive vision. Although, I see them "thriving" more in the culty environments than the blatantly restrictive ones.

    IJs and some EJs in general like order, so they may buck less against conservative communities than their P counterparts.

    I think it's likely many of them retreat inside themselves, into their own heads, thoughts, feelings, imaginations.

    Yeah, for that reason, I almost wanted to ask how specifically NPs do in these communities, or even SPs, who don't always do as well in highly structured, traditional environments.


    I also want to clarify that I don't think all S types and SJs in particular are going to automatically thrive and do better than Ns in these sort of communities, but it's probably at least the case that they will do a bit better, on average.

    Would you mind elaborating?

    My family is neither of those but are still traditionalists in many ways.

    My core family (parents & siblings) is completely N by a bizarre stroke of luck (I say lucky for me) but the rest are somehow magically a congregation of ESTJ entrepreneurs and 1 ENTJ with an esteemed position, except for one quiet, reserved ISTJ and an ESFP 'oddball'... Both of whom still are business owners.

    The ENTJ sticks out in my family like a sore thumb, too. She is the 'weird, different, but effective' one.
    The family disagrees with her (in terms of how to run things), but respects her and let her do her own thing because 'results don't lie'.

    How do N types live in highly traditionalist, insulated communities?
    I don't. My parents don't, either. I, at least, escape as many family meetings as socially possible.
    The aforementioned ENTJ also realizes that she doesn't 'click' with the family, but says people just work differently and she just follows her own vision of what is right.

    I can see this, actually. The only reason my ENTJ mom does not get along with the family is because while they are generally very decisive, business owners, professional, etc, and each agree that the other is very good at their own thing, they do not share the same visions / core values.
    I can see them having many disagreements and not working as optimally as usually would, say if they were in the same company and equal positions.

    Enneagram would likely explain this better, each type's core fears and desires, and their subsequent coping strategies.

    How “insulated” are we talking? I’m thinking an outcome as seen in M. Night Shyamalan’s “The Village” would play out. Not literally, duh, but that sort of break through or awakening.
