    I think it would benefit a lot of the ENFPs here to learn their enneagarm type

    When I took my first MBTI type in the summer of 2011 it really opened my eyes.

    But a lot of the problems and questions posted on this forum really don't resonate with me. In fact, while I may be very social I don't make friends very easily and have always felt an odd alienation from most people.

    While this could be explained by being surrounded by sensors, I didn't like this explanation.

    And then I learned all about the Enneagram.

    A lot of the stereotypes thrown around in this forum can be easily explained more effectively by learning the enneagram.

    It really helped narrow down my motivations as an individual. I finally settled down on my core type and tritype which helped explain a lot of my own issues. It's not a perfect system but a typographical map of my mind is better than nothing.

    It definitely seems complicated at first, but start by reading every type and understanding how the wings work. Pick 3 types that you relate to the most in each triad (head, heart, and gut). Then, dive in to the instinctual variants.

    I agree, being ENFP is one thing, finding out I'm a two was another thing entirely. Ahhhh! So THAT's why I do what I do!
    :) Good call, my friend.

    I have to agree because I don't always identify with all the ENFP's here either. 7w8 is usually what I get when I test and what I identify with for the most part. I definitely identify with the 7 but the wing I am not totally sure about.

    I identify with the 4, but I just did the test and came up 7.

    while you're at it figure out your astrological sign and get a star chart.

    Finding out what your enneagram is requires more than just taking one test. It took me several months to discover my tri-fix.

    But see, the difference between astrology/horoscopes and enneagram is that enneagram actually makes sense. :P

    I'm apparently a 4w3, which I identify with pretty accurately.
    Even so, I don't really take enneagram quite as seriously as MBTI because it's not founded on scientific data.

    I'm curious though, could someone explain tri-types to me? I don't really understand that aspect of enneagram.

    I'm having a heck of a time figuring out my Enneagram Type. Is there any test you think is particularly accurate or incisive? When I first took the MBTI tests, I got a few different responses but when I read the ENFP description, a few specifics jumped out at me and resonated with me, absolutely. I haven't had that experience reading any Enneagram descriptions. What would you suggest I do at this juncture, pls?

    There's only a couple aspects in enneagram descriptions that are really important in figuring out your type...I'm assuming you've read all the descriptions. Did any of the core motivations and fears resonate with you?
