    Lol no. I don't think you understand what intuition is.

    This whole thread is crap. This is not what typology is.

    First of all, you are going to need to unlearn everything you've "learned" about types. Strip it back to bare bones and start over. Don't ask people on a forum what your type is. Humans always think they know more than they know. And while it's true that it can be beneficial to have external input on how others perceive you, that is not the same thing as having others type you. It's good to get external input to help you see your ego in action, but outside of blind spots, it's not really helpful most of the time (because how extraordinarily intelligent is the average person?).

    Do a Google search of the founders/leaders in Enneagram, go to Amazon, and buy their books. Get at least three; one by Naranjo, one by Riso/Hudson, and one other that speaks to you. Read, think, read some more, observe, think, read again, rinse and repeat.

    Sorry... I'm just so sick of the garbage people teach and wish I would have been balanced enough to see it when I started with this stuff because it was a waste of my time and efforts.

    Good luck, sincerely.

    This is a good suggestion and That what exactly what I have been doing even before joining this forum only with different authors in Jungian psychology.

    Neither do you.

    Btw, if you want to discuss more about intuition, we should not discuss in this thread, which would be off topic. This thread is about attempting to type.

    Thanks for your feedback! I have looked into the Ennegram, and frankly, it doesn't really match up with what I believe in truth. It's just a re-hashing of different theories. I think all of these personality tests have some truth in them, but they are just rough guides. No one is 100% anything. Frankly, the Meyers Briggs is the tried and true and that's why it has been around for over 70 years. It is more accurate to me because it also aligns with the 4 basic temperaments- which derive from the ancient Greeks. When I do that one, I am a Melancholy-Choleric- and that fits well with INFP. I see a lot of Biblical principles in this as well. Thanks, though.

    I respect your right to hold different beliefs and preferences than I, but I must correct you in that the Enneagram is not a "rehashing of different theories". Furthermore, it's roots predate the MBTI by... well... a shit ton. The Enneagram is a very complex yet somehow beautifully simplistic mathematical mapping of ego structures which is not only connected to observable patterns in association with sacred geometry, but also fairly well backed up by patterns of diagnosable neuroses.

    Popular definitions of Jungian types (and functions for that matter, to some extent) will forever be flawed as long as the MBTI remains the benchmark for assessing type, because self-typing will always be prey to the whims of the ego whose job is to convince you that you are who you think you are.

    The Enneagram explains the why of who we are, not the what of how we are (MB types). I find the former infinitely more interesting and useful.

    Also, it should go without saying that no one is 100% anything. Relying upon a system to define in entirety a One of 8 billion is perceptively primitive, at best.
