    INTP-Enneagram Correlation

    My theory is that different MBTI types correlate with different sets of Enneagram types. For example, my boyfriend is an ISFJ E6. On a hunch, I would guess that most ISFJs would be E2 or E9, but that E6 is still a fairly regular subtype.

    I am an INTP Enneagram 5, and I would assume that the majority of INTPs are also E5, but I could be wrong. I would be particularly interested to know if the Enneagram distribution is random or if a handful of Enneagram types are most common. If so, which Enneagram types do you see as being associated with which MBTI types?

    Disclaimers:
    To capture the full range of MBTI/Enneagram correlation would take way more than this poll, so here I'm just sticking with INTPs.

    There are already some articles discussing this topic out there. What do y'all think?

    I voted wrong, sorry. I meant to choose the last option on the poll.

    INFP, enneagram 4w5. The 4w5 description matches my personality more closely than the INFP descriptions I've read.

    cool graphic. It'll be interesting to see the poll when it gets more votes.
    "Better not to feel too much until the crisis ends—and if it never ends, at least we’ll have suffered a little less, developed a useful dullness...The constant—and very real—fear of being hurt, the fear of death, of intolerable loss, or even of “mere” humiliation, leads each of us, the citizens and prisoners of the conflict, to dampen our own vitality, our emotional and intellectual range, and to cloak ourselves in more and more protective layers until we suffocate." - Toni Morrison

    So what is it about type 6 that makes it so common

    Now that i look at what type 6 means:
    It's just people lying on their enneagram tests so that they get hired by whoever.
    Violence is never the right answer, unless used against heathens and monsters.

    I've always thought enneagram was silly, because these traits don't seem to neatly array themselves into a linear pattern. But if I had to assign myself a value, it would be 7w8, and that does line up pretty well with ENTP on the fancy graphic.

    I'm a 5w4 but given that I've never really looked closely at enneagram I don't totally know what that means.

    i'm definitely 4w5 enneagram, but not sure if INTP anymore.

    others have accused me of being IXXP, or INFP. i'd say i'm more INXP, and about as equally 4 as 5, and as equally 4w5 as 5w4, but 4 describes my core life motivations better.

    then again, maybe i'm not even an N. maybe i'm just some kind of smart S. my intuitions usually come "out of the blue" and i tend to miss patterns and occurrences as they develop and i don't think I typically function as an N in off-the-cuff interactions, but only during speculation. like Se + Ni but both kinda strong, or at least that's how i feel i've been in the past year.

    I find that both MBTI and Enneagram can provide insights in understanding people. For myself, discovering that I was INTP was extraordinarily revealing and useful, whereas Enneagram 5 doesn't really tell me anything about myself that I didn't already know.

    However, I've known people whose MBTI type I never tried to guess but whose Enneagram type was obvious. One women I knew was an E7. She was an excellent instigator - great in a group setting, energetic, someone who could be counted on to stir things up and inject energy into a project. But she could be very narcissistic, putting her own whims on par with others' needs. Enneagram was very helpful in understanding her mindset.

    I guess I've always seen MBTI and Enneagram as different, complimentary tools but I never thought to put them together until, in the constant struggle to understand my boyfriend, I realized that as an E6 ISFJ, he's significantly different from other E-types of ISFJs.

    E4/E9 INTPs, do you feel different from E5 INTPs? Do you feel like a minority? Do you sometimes relate to INFPs or is it something totally different?
