    Tritype Mistypes

    So, I hope I'm getting it right for once...

    I'm probably 459 but I thought for the longest time that I was a 479, 471, 451 and 469 to only name a few.
    I think my mistakes are linked to my instinctual stacking (so/sx), which is somewhat in contraction with the typical 459 description.

    Have y'all ever been mistyping your tritype like I did?

    Yeah, I can relate. I am probably 469 but I don't relate to its descriptions. In MBTI, I'm definitely an SP but 469 generally correlates with NF types. However, I do strongly relate to 4, 6, and 9.

    I've had quite a few tritype mistypes as well... 136, 146, 368, 468, 359, 459, and 137.
    Back then, I used to type based on tritype descriptions rather than finding my individual heart, head, and gut types. This lead to a lot of confusion, especially since tritype descriptions generally aren't the greatest and finding core type is much more important.

    I am starting to feel that MBTI types might play a huge role in differenciating enneatypes and tritypes.
    I know two people who are the exact same tritype (same order even) but do not share the same MBTI type and they are quite different. It's eery how one tiny detail changes the whole demeanor sometimes.

    I've noticed the same thing. Enneagram doesn't say everything about a person, nor does MBTI. So it's interesting seeing how those two typologies interact in different ways. You can do the same thing the other way around, comparing people with the same MBTI type but different enneagram cores or even tritypes.

    Type 6w7

    Yes indeed! It took me quite a while to figure out my core type, much less tritype.

    I initially identified with 7w6, then 3w4. I also considered 4w3 and 9w8. I did not quickly recognize myself in 6 profiles, which seem to be more SJ or ST and sp-high oriented. 7w6 was easier to quickly relate to, being more rosy-tinted and more scattered as INFPs are wont to be. Especially as a self-pres-last, my outward 6ishness is sort of "muted" in a way. I do also totally agree with @JVal that 469 generally correlates with NF and I related to type 4 because I am very NF - very aesthetically-oriented and idealistic - though upon deeper inspection I found that I don't possess much of the core 4 drive at all. I still relate a fair amount to the 469 tritype, as it is close to my 269, and the IxxP temperament is simply more like the outward appearance of 4 than the outward appearance of 2. But, ultimately, I am easily more of a 269 Good Samaritan than a 469 Seeker. For better or worse, I will quickly drop the deep, existential exploration to offer assistance with a practical problem. It is more rewarding for me to have my hands in the interpersonal, pragmatic muck, scoring a tangible short-term bounty (a creation, solution, smile, thanks, etc.), and I have to be careful because it's easy for me to get drawn away from the deeper cause.

    My resonance with type 3 is a bit harder to understand, though again I think it's easily clear in my deep drives that I'm a 269 over 369. I think it is in part that I have two other connections to 3 (6 and 9), and that I have a strong dose of 2w3. I understood from the get-go that I do not relate at all to the "successful polish" of 3 - I am more halfway between "parent-pleasing kid" and "wild earth child", though I certainly still relate to wanting to be admired. I also continue to possess a strength of forward/future drive akin to 3's or 1's that is not really well-explained by anything in my INFP 6w7-2w3-9w8 so/sx type. The closest I have ever come to having that illustrated has been an "aura color" test that identified me as a "violet", meaning that I have an intense, pressing desire to make (and a relentless vision of making) deep-rooted, benevolent change in the world and that I will feel deeply restless and unfulfilled until I am actively engaged in that role.

    Type 5w6

    I don’t know my tritype or core type, I can be type 5 a both wings or type 1w9 maybe. I mistyped myself as 514 and 154, 513 recently I think I can be 584. I don’t know maybe madness play a role in it and I haven’t tritype or it changing in cycles. I’m interested how to be insane affect MBTI type and also enneagram, but there aren’t many studies or threads here about this topic. Maybe users just don’t want everyone know they are mad.

    I've been all over the map, but currently after fucking around with quite a few fixes and cores, I've finally landed on 125. At most I might look into a 3 fix over the 2 (because 2 influence could be the wing of the 1 or fix or both), but 125 or 135 are the closest two types for myself.

    FTR, my worst mistype was 548.

    Just out of interest, and to get your personal opinion: what do you think led to you being able to mistype at 548 since the 458 and 125 tritypes are archetypally so different?

    Was it a less nuanced understanding of each type or something else?
    I'm asking because I'm trying to probe how my own misunderstandings/biases could mean I'm currently mistyping.

    ^^This. I was skim reading and seeing things that weren't there.

    1 and 5 are both competency triad which is why a lot of 1 and 5 mistypes happen. (as did mine). 1's are driven to commit out of a sense of idealism. Whether it's large scale or small scale.

    1 disintegrates to 4, so on the surface it can appear to have some 4 traits, but they're largely negative 4ish traits. Like even when I relate to envy, it's not because I wish I was like or able to be a certain way, but rather it's immoral for someone else to have what I don't have because they broke the law to get it or were doing something wrong in my eyes. (as an example)

    And 1 and 8 are both assertive, physical and intuitive which is where a lot of 8 and 1 mistypes happen.

    8's are more likely and easily able to side-step morality, 1's are guided by it and will stop short of breaking major rules and laws.

    They might if they've justified that a certain law just shouldn't exist but you'll notice that a 1 will be justifying their action and claiming that even an immoral act is moral in their perspective (more exaggerated for Sx 1's (which according to Beatrice is the counter-type for 1's). 1's and morality are intrinsically linked and while I've broken a few laws here and there and thought that made me amoral for a while, but when I closely observed my life with a bird's eye view instead of just cherry picking bits, I realized that for me being a moral person as per my own ideals has always been my primary driving force. I broke the law because I didn't agree with the law's existence in the first place and decided that it was justifiable to break it.

    I didn't really realize I was a core 1 until I started observing myself in most of my most innate behaviors like desire to be right, over-critical of myself and others .. how hard I am on myself and other people because I want things to be a certain way etc.

    I also related to 7 for a while, but for Sx 1's in particular the 7 inner child is as playful on the surface as a core 7 therefore the motto "work hard, play hard" applies to the point of Sx 1's appearing "hedonistic", but that only comes out once the hair is let down, after the requirements and obligations, and commitments are met.

    I'm asking because I'm trying to probe how my own misunderstandings/biases could mean I'm currently mistyping.
    Good luck.

    Type 7w6

    I've been wondering if knowing what all the type options are (for Enneagram, MBTI, Socionics) influences when you re-take assessments.

    The ways we see ourselves, or wish we were to be, can alter from who we are, how we act on a daily basis (sometimes, we have exceptional moments that differ from the norm).

    Whenever I take a Socionics assessment, I find that because I've studied all 64 permutations, I know what each answer will lead towards, which undoubtedly alters something.
    On a note, my first time coming to ENFP, it was due to friends who knew about it more than I introducing it to me and telling me that they believe that is my type.

    You've spoke about all these different types you've gone through. How did you assess each time? If it was through tests, how do you feel your increased knowledge of the typology affect the results? Did other people help you decide?
