    ENTJs who have done the enneagram

    If you've done the Enneagram Personality test, what type have you gotten? Do you think is it true? Does it apply to you?

    I scored type 8

    I score as an 8w9, and think it's very accurate. Although.. I also identify pretty strongly with 8w7.

    I'm an 8w7, though I am not sure of the description. That's the only one I've ever tested and the description only gave me a type 8 description. Not sure how the wings come into place, though.

    I typically get 8 with a strong 9 wing, in second place is 6, third is 3 and 1 (although I dont relate to 1 perfectionism very well).

    I relate extremely well to 8w9, and also relate to 6w7 a lot too.

    They say that ENTJs "should be" enneagram types 8, 6,3, or 1. I dont believe that enneagram is associated with MBTI type (technically it shouldn't be, enneagram is motivations, MBTI is how you think) but it'd be kind of weird to see an ENTJ type 2 enneagram or ENTJ type 9.
    *shrug* I suppose it exists somewhere.

    3w2. The 3 fits very much, but the 2 wing.. never thought of myself as 'charming', but I guess I'm too social to be a wing 4.

    I view MBTI as indication of 'performance' or the way one 'function', but enneagram as the underlying motives and the way the machinery ticks. That's how it works in my case, anyway: by practical purposes I'm an ENTJ, but why I do those things, and the little things I just do regardless of (ENTJ-oriented) purposes, they usually fall to 3w2 tendencies.

    I usually get a type 7, the adventurer. I dont hold much stock in the enneagram.

    3w4. Agreed that the enneagram is fluffy.

    Type 8. What is the wing thing? It gives me one type when I take the tests.

    Your wing is sort of like, the "added" part.
    For example, if youre an enneagram 8, you could be 8w9 or 8w7.
    The number can only be one below or above the initial, like if you were a 7, then you can only be 7w6 or 7w8 (not 7w1 or 7w9).

    The wings add a different element to the typical description.
    So while a 8w7 will be extremely agressive, assertive, etc, an 8w9 is completely different. They are more soft/subdued than their 8w7 counterparts.
    I believe PersC has some articles on enneagram and the wings.

    A note on type 8s:
    Also, counterphobic 6's are also considered to mirror 8s, so sometimes you see someone you think is an 8, but theyre actually a 6. It does the same for other numbers, it gets kind of complicated, and then it segregates to whether you're a "healthy" 8, 7 or 2 (what have you) to an unhealthy description.

    Enneagram can be fluffy and is really even less factual than MBTI or Jungian functions.
    I like it because its fun, and it does explain some things that functions cannot but do I hold loads of stock into it? Not all the time. Enneagram is about motivations.

    8w7 with instinctual stackings of sx/sp. Intensely dislike enneagram since the optimum enneagram health level we can reach is the benevolent physically powerful village idiot who's had smoke and sunshine blown up his arse so he believes by being do-gooders, he too can be heroic in nature. Ew to a system that optimises using a Fe-based control mechanism to mould individuals into someone else's perception of a functional society.

    The instinctual stackings I can relate to and embrace.
