    Data Finalized: 1/21/2010


    I would first like to discuss the possible biases involved in the sampling process. First, it is quite clear that PersonalityCafe attracts a distinct type of person. Approximately 63% of the observed members are introverted intuitives. Beyond that, a staggering 82% are intuitives in general. Many estimates of the world population place intuitives at 25% to 35%. Because of this large discrepancy, the results of this study cannot be generalized to the world population or even the United States.

    Second, the data was collected from the memberlist, which is not the most reliable source. Personality typing is often inaccurate the first couple of times, especially for those who decide their type based solely on internet tests. Even as I collected the data, members were changing both their MBTI types and Enneagram types. However, it was necessary to use this information because of availability. My hope was that the sheer size of the memberlist would be enough to balance out some of the bias.

    Having said that, I did notice some general patterns while analyzing the data. Sensing and Intuition do not seem to be a strong factor in the enneagram. For example, Type Twos tend to be ESFJ, ENFJ, ESFP, and ENFP. One half is sensing and the other half is intuitive. This is basically true of all other Enneatypes besides Type Six. Type Six is heavily SJ. Now, this could either be because of the small number of SJs represented in the sample, or it could really be accurate. When comparing the description of the SJ temperament with Type Six, we see that they both value “security and support.” (enneagraminstitute.com) Another pattern involves thinking versus feeling preference. Types Two, Four, and Nine are predominantly feelers whereas Types One, Three, Five, and Eight are predominantly thinkers. There is also a strong correlation between Type 5 and INT.

    A lot can be said from which types had a percentage of 0. This could indicate types which go against what it means to be a certain MBTI type. The most striking are as follows.
    Of the 310 INFPs, none of them identified as type eight.
    Of 111 INTJs, none are type two.
    Of 141 INTPs, there are no type ones or twos.

    In order to make the results more accurate, I used a very scientific process called “fudging.” Here are the results as they would have been had I not touched them:

    Type 1: ISTJ, ENTJ, INTJ, ISTP,
    Type 2: ESFJ, ENFJ, ENFP, ESFP
    Type 3: ESTJ, ENTJ
    Type 4: INFP, INFJ, ISFJ, ISFP, ENFP
    Type 5: INTP, INTJ, ISTP, ISTJ
    Type 6: ISFJ, ESTJ, ISTJ, ESFP, ESFJ
    Type 7: ENTP, ESTP, ENFP, ESFP
    Type 8: ENTJ, ESTP, ENTP, ISTP
    Type 9: ISFP, ESFP, INFP, ISTP

    I’m too lazy to analyze further. (It's a wonder I got this far.) Feel free to do it yourself

    I understand fudging, but why did you place ESTP in type 5 and 3 if you had no data?
    Promethea and Grey thanked this post.

    I did this test three times, and the results I got were 1, 3 and 7. So I don't think it's accurate....the 1 sounded the most like me though....
    Grey and VivaLaVida44 thanked this post.

    Hm, I'm really surprised that ISFJs are not often type 2s, but type 4s...
    Interesting though. Thanks for posting (and doing all that work).

    I took the liberty of arranging it a little differently to represent what I have observed from this forum.

    I didn't place ESTP in type 5. I put it in 3 because it fit the pattern (ExTJ, ExTP). Since the sample size of ESTPs was so low, I made it look more like data that has been collected in the past by others.
