Type Me Please: New Questionnaire Answered


New member
Nov 10, 2017
Heya guys, I found the suggested questionnaire and fell in love with it.
Hope anyone can help, of course if you have time, thanks a lot, I mean it!

1) Context:
a) What is your age range and general location (Country so that cultural values can be taken into account)? Do you have any impairments that may affect the way that you answer this questionnaire? Any religious or political beliefs (or anything else along those lines) that also might have an effect?

I'm 25 years old and I live in Florence, Italy. No impairments known. I'm a buddhist and liberal.

b) Which types are you currently considering? Why are you considering them and why haven’t you decided on one?

So I got typed recently as ESxP, but I'm not sure about it, I haven't settled on one because I have a hard time the type “right” for me :D

2) What do you deem as your purpose in life?

I would say simply, when I'll look back, I could say “yeah I've lived a pretty good and fulfilling life, found what was my “call” , and done something meaningful for me”.

3) Of the seven deadly sins, which one(s) do you relate to the most and the least and why?

Most: Sloth, I end up always second guessing myself and not throwing myself in situations because I fear I wouldn't like it, or fearing I haven't chosen the right path for me, making excuses to not do the things I must do, paralyzing myself in the process or procrastinating

Least: Lust, I would say I never valued too much sex in general, or, in another interpretation, sensory indulgence.

4) Analyzing your relationships with others, briefly describe:
a) The type of people you are drawn to

Profound and philosophical people, with a creative mind and never ending ideas (since they manage to stimulate my creative, buried side)

b) The type of people who are drawn to you

I would say “problematic” people, since I appear as having it together and help them overcome their tribulations with some advices or insights, I guess!

c) The type of people you are repulsed by

Manipulators, false people, who don't say things in your face and fake smiles while stabbing others in the back; Violent, self-righteous and aggressive people that feel like they can trample others “just because”

5)What are the traits in others that you admire but you cannot emulate yourself? Elaborate.

People with a strong discipline and sense of commitment, that can reach whatever they want to reach with hard work and self-sacrifice, because read point 3

6) Describe your relationship with the following:
a) Anger

I can get irritated pretty easily and explode in the face of others (especially the ones I care about) with just a slight provocation, but I don't hold grudges, and probably a second lave I'm loving and caring as usual. Working on it, btw xD

b) Shame

I have some memories I'm really ashamed of, and, sometimes, when my mind happens to randomly remember them, I feel ashamed as hell and deluded by my past self, but aside from that I don't fear shame too much.

c) Fear

My only fear is building a life that would not fulfill me and, when I'll be old, I would regret all the choices I made, aside from that I don't have particular fears.

d) Love/passion

It's complicated, I don't even know if I have known or will achieve an “ideal” romance, or have loved in the strict sense at all, but definitely is something I hope! But, generally, I can't say I'm a “passionate” person.

e) Conflict

I try my best to avoid it, but, when it happens, is kind of a blessing in disguise, because I think with a conflict you can destroy what doesn't work and build (or be “reborn”) anew!
The stronger the conflict, the best you can make out of it

7) What are some of the themes that have played a prominent role in your life (ie. A struggle you’ve been unable to conquer, ect)?

As I said before, self-doubting and “choice-paralysis”, I always end up thinking I'm making a wrong move that could have damaged my future.

8) Answer only one of the following:
a) [College aged and above] What is your area of work/study? Why did you choose this and would you change it? If so, what would be your ideal?

I jumped between so many different courses because I never found one really interesting for me, and an excessive theoretical approach is really crippling for me. The one I'm following now is a professional course in Web Marketing Specialist and I'm really enjoying it so far, so many different subjects, and really requested in the job market! I enjoy it because I like the idea of working in a more technical sense with people behind the scenes. I don't have an ideal work, but I'd love to work in a Video-game agency, or sustainable design/architecture at the end of the course!

9) When meeting a new person, what do you tend to focus on?

Mostly on his/her thoughts flow, how he/she says what he/she said, and why. I value a lot telling each other's experiences in life.

10) How do you feel about humanity as a whole? What do you feel are some of the biggest problems the human race faces and why?

Equity, things are never measured on a global and uniform scale, and laws are not applied to everyone in a generic way. It's terrifying that people with stronger status quo or rank in the hierarchy could go away with almost everything, while someone, IE, never killed anyone but just made a simple robbery, ends up being spited and despised, or is treated worse than an animal.
I think people with power are given many more rights than the people who never had power in the first place.

11) What are some of your hobbies and interests?

I love reading, watching TV series and movies and playing a lot of video-games. I also enjoy a lot hitting pubs with my close friends and drinking beer together while talking about everything. I enjoy spending a lot of time in nature too.

13) How do you usually “hang out” with your friend(s)? When answering, think about what activities you tend to choose, whether you hang out with one person at once or many, whether or not you initiate the interaction.

This is a hard one, since it really depends on the company. I think I generally love hanging out with my close friends (maximum a small group of 6-8 people) and going to quieter places like restaurants, open-air bars (or quiet pubs) to be able to talk freely to each other; I enjoy going in the outdoors or short vacations with them. I hate discos and crowded places (aside from live concerts, but I get tired pretty easily in them). I think the others are generally the ones initiating conversations, but I keep them going on and on, I love listening to them and exchanging my thoughts on their experience.

14) What is more important, actions or words? Why?

I would say actions, but in the long run. The actions in the long run are the ones that demonstrates the loyalty to our relationships, both for them and from me, by my side. I value words too, but less, since I can't say I'm a man of my word xD

15) Oh dear, you’ve been cursed by a witch! It’s ok though, you get a choice on which curse you will receive. Will you choose….
a) To never be able to experience the sensation of taste
b) To be immortal
This one, it's a curse indeed, especially in relationships, but down inside myself I'd love being there to see the end of it all, and watch how the world will change over the future decades and comparing it to the past I already lived, mostly for the sake of knowledge and curiosity!
c) To lose your memories
d) To be poor for the rest of your life
e) Or to never experience passion
Elaborate on why!

16) What do you hope to avoid being? If it helps, describe a person who embodies what you avoid/you as a villain, ect.

Hard to say, I avoid being useless, helpless, unfulfilled, traitorous in my affections, someone who others can't rely on. Someone like Nurse Ratched in the omonimous series and the original movie.

17) How do you relate to obsession? Do you tend to "merge" with others or your interests? How do you feel about the idea of doing this?

I won't say I'm an obsessive person, but I noticed sometimes I expend all my mental energies on an useless task just to “challenge myself” (like finishing a game and not doing anything else on my alone free time). I definitely merge with my interests, rather than others, I find myself sometime so hypnotized on the things I do and my hobbies that I lose the track of time. The idea doesn't bother me so much, anyway.

18) Organized or messy? Plans and blueprints or impulse and surprises? What are you preferences and tendencies?

I tend to be “mentally” organized in my interior world the thoughts and things to do, I follow a mental schedule improvised on the moment (IE:I'll play for 1 hour, then study 2 hours, take a break and it, around 40 minutes, then I play again for a while etc.) but I kinda suck in applying it to the outer world. I prefer a plan, btw, and I kinda dislike surprises (except on rare occasions like my birthday party or so on).

19) How do you subjectively view comfort and how do you create comfort in your life and surroundings?

Comfort for me is mostly bounded to the outer sensorial world, like watching a TV series with my girlfriend in my house, while drinking a cup of tea under the sheets, things like these, and I strive both to “be comforted” and “give comfort” to my special one and the people close to me. For me, comfort equals coziness!

6w7 so dom is my guess. Probably 693 so/sp. 9sp could be possible too.

Thanks a lot, I'd love to delve deeper in the enneagram! I was thinking, with just the little infos I have, that 5w6 could fit a bit too, not too sure about it :D

My guess: ISFP

You appear to be immensely concerned with what is right and wrong (a prominent sign of Fi dom). Besides, you seem to me to be well balanced in terms of knowing how to enjoy the here and now while not committing excesses (something that young ESXPs would not be remarkably great at doing in most cases)
