- MBTI Type
- Instinctual Variant
I feel like I'm impossible! I'm literally the stereotypical INFP but I CANNOT relate to type 4 at all! Every time I do the enneagram test the results are always either 9w1, 2w1, 6w7, or 7w6. 4w5 is nothing like me!
I guess enneagram sort of correlates with cognitive functions more than MBTI? Cos despite being INFP I do not nave a pronounced Fi. My dominant functions are actually Ne and Fe.
I also have an INTJ friend whose enneagram is actually 1w2. According to the chart up there there are no type two INTJs?
As an SFP 6, I think it definitely explains the counter phobic pull I felt, like I actually remember feeling the division of earnestly wishing I could just blindly obey...and just not being able to, and feeling it was a sadness or a tragedy than a liberation in many ways. I wonder how common this is among SP 6s...like wow I'm sorry I'm not an SJ, I'm really missing out on a consistency and peace of mind I could have had. I wonder if N 6s feel differently. ..like if they feel like they missed out on anything at all. The only thing I can compare it to is a gay person wishing they could have been straight. ..welp, here I am, I wanted to fit in, but my brain just doesn't, so fuck you.
I laughed. This is very CP and very 6.
6's are somewhat J'ish in characteristics and it comes out in testing a lot if you equate conscientious, reliability, foresight with an MBTI function. Which is incorrect. Surface, yes but motivations are different. Those buzz words work more for Enneagram typing that MBTI, IMO. Because when you break down MBTI types, that would mean that P's are never organized, a mess, etc. but that isn't P verses J. P and J are more about how you prefer to make decisions.
I don't think I am explaining this well. *shrugs*
You're doing fine!
MBTI is how you think, Enneagram is how you react.
I really love this statement. Really boils them both down to their essences.
Finding Enneagram made MBTI make more sense. I should say, it gave it more dimension and I have more confidence in them working together to form a better whole.
I like it. I'm a fan of empirical stuff. "The data says a thing."
Statistics can be such boolshit.
Statistics are only bullshit when you don't know how to interpret or use them correctly. Sure they don't tell the whole story, but nothing ever does.
However, the part of my post you quoted doesn't deal with statistics, it deals with probablity, based on statistics.
