    IEI type 4 and SLE type 7 - Socionics vs. Enneagram - confused, does it work?

    I'm so confused. I'm just thinking, do these two - IEI type 4 and SLE type 7 - even work? Because the socionics says one thing - that the IEI and SLE are a duality - while the Enneagram says that a type 3 is better for a type 7, and a type 8 is better for a type 4.

    So would a type 3 person be better for my SLE type 7 friend, since I am a Type 4? But I'm an IEI in socionics, and apparently that's the best pair for an SLE...? But then... Ugh!

    Because my friend seems to have a lot more fun with a type 3 chick more than with me, to be honest. Seems a lot more interested and talks a lot more. Between me and the SLE, we have a lot of problems, but I feel almost a bit of a magnetic draw to her, and I think she may feel it towards me too, but we have a lot of problems - mainly that I'm way too emotional and I keep being complaining about my life around her [my type 4 coming out]. I know I need to stop, but... It's a problem because I feel like I can be completely natural around her.. [Socionics duality coming out?] But then, does my need to restrain myself, emotionally, conflict with being my 'real self' around her? But I admit that sometimes I'm way too sentimental around her and that makes her uncomfortable. So is this a duality, because we're an IEI-SLE, or is it not - but then the Enneagram says otherwise... ? Help!!!

    [Btw do subtypes play in? I reckon I'm an IEI-Fe and she's an SLE-Ti...]

    Enneagrams are probably closer to DCNH subtypes than to primary types.

    Don't use type theory for the basis of judging whether a relationship will work or not; just act as if you didn't know theory and let the relationship play its course.

    Where does enneagram say that?

    That's the correct combination. So now you know, you can dismiss all information, and just live :)

    From what you said it suggests that you're a little wound up, which is good.

    Activity partners tend to be more stimulating than dual.

    I'd never heard that about 4's and 8's... 8, as a type, is very intimidating to me. (I'm 4w3-6w7-9w1). I'm an IEI-Fe, I believe. But I'm knew to Socionics.

    But do not get involved with your conflictor or supervisor!
