    Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    I'm a 4w3 5w4 9w1 Sx/Sp (INFP) And was wondering if any of you are similar and what you are up to? Or thinking about? there was an older thread like this years ago but I'm looking to see if we could set up a group call or just talk on here would be fine. I'm living at home with my parents...
  2. 3 mistyped as a 5 due to childhood wound?

    What's my Enneagram type?
    Growing up, I acted like a pretty stereotypical Five. I grew up in a pretty volatile home with constant loud, painful arguments and fights between my parents, and between my parents and sibling. It was too much for me to handle and I was overwhelmed, so I pretty much spent most of my time in my...

  5. Type 4 with Type 5 - Recipe for disaster?

    Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    Hi Everyone, This is my first post on here, and I've found many others to be very helpful. I would love some thoughts on this...I've read all that I can find online about relationships between Type 4's and Type 5's, and everything I've read doesn't quite seem to hit the nail on the head with...
  6. [Enneagram Type 5] Does any other Type 5 {or Type 1) have issues with Type 4s?

    Type 5 Forum - The Investigator
    Me and Type 4s in life can never get along and I know a lot of those who are Type 4s. They are very tiring and draining. I am not looking forward to meet obnoxious, gloomy, irritating people who try to affect others around them. There are people who try to make a reaction out of others with...
  7. [Enneagram Type 9] I'm a number 5w4 in love with a 9w8

    Type 9 Forum - The Peacemaker
    I am 5w4 (INTP), and I have been dating a 9w8 (ISTP) for almost 8 months. Oftentimes, I find that we are not the best at communicating how we feel about each other. I get scared to talk about my feelings. It makes me feel overly vulnerable, and I worry about not being able to handle bringing up...

  10. Am I a 5 or a 7?

    What's my Enneagram type?
    I'm hands down one of the two but I'm having difficulties figuring out which one. I relate to both of them too much. I thought, "well I must be the one in between, type 6", however I don't relate to the core fear of type 6, nor do any of the many different descriptions I've read ring "me". I...
  11. Is Enneagram affected by adverse childhood experiences?

    Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    Hello, I have been wondering lately the affects of adverse childhood experiences on the personality. If one is born with their enneagram type, does this affect their reaction to these experiences, or does the experience shape their personality or warp their perception of it? I have recently...
  12. ISFJ and Type 5: Is it possible?

    Head Triad - Types 5,6,7
    I'm an ISFJ and an Enneagram Type 5 (possibly 5w6) but apparently it's really rare and I can't seem to find anyone who also fits these two types. Is anyone else here an ISFJ and Type 5?
  13. Trying to figure out my 6-fix?

    What's my Enneagram type?
    Hi everyone! I hope you're all doing well :proud: I've been delving headfirst into enneagram a lot lately, and I'm getting a pretty clear view of my type. However, when it comes to my tritype (which is how I prefer to refer to myself, honestly) I'm a little lacking in knowledge of one regard-...
  14. [INFP] INFP 5w4 vs 5w6

    INFP Forum - The Idealists
    I have been trying to figure out my wing for weeks now...I know I'm a type 5 (detached to the max, baby!), but the specific sides of type 5 are a little foggy to me... I found this on Typology Central but I'm still somewhat confused: For the w4...I'm pretty creative, and love to sketch and...
  15. [Enneagram Type 5] 5w4 MISTYPES AS 9!!

    Type 5 Forum - The Investigator
    There seems to be an enneagram rule that this mistype can only occur in the opposite direction :wink-new: For a long while I was a 9w1 sp/sx, which I continued to believe even through every depth of research. I could identify with the unhealthy levels and because I'm an INFP, I identified with...
  16. [Enneagram Type 5] Enneagram 5 or 7? ~ Curious biologist

    Head Triad - Types 5,6,7
    Hey so. I'm an ISFP, and thinking I'm probably 8w7 for dominant type. I used to think I was 7w8 until I was speaking with my mentor lately and realized I do everything I do for fear of being controlled. I'm applying to veterinary school so I can open my own wildlife center and write my own...
  17. 7w6 sp/so dating a 4w3 (I think!): hot mess! insights???

    Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    Hey everyone I'm new to the forum, and new to the enneagram. I took the MB a long time ago and have always been either IE/NFP, and my extraversion has dominated as I've gotten older, fairly substantially. I grew up in a horrifically dysfunctional home, passed around to different family members &...
  18. High Usage of Ni, Am I ISTP? maybe ISFP or INTJ...

    What's my personality type?
    I've been studying this stuff for a while and it doesn't get any easier really to type yourself haha going deeper into the function axes would seem to simplify things, but depending on the position in the axis each function performs slightly differently, especially when you include the other...
  19. I might be a 9, am I? Please do type me, I'm curious.

    What's my Enneagram type?
    I'm a teenager. Introverted Head-in-The clouds person In between being pessimistic and optimistic. I had social problems. when I was a kid, I scored an INTJ. But now, I score INTP and INFP. Does that help? I kinda think I'm a 9 because of it's desire and fear. I have abandonment/attachment...
  20. I keep getting typed as a 4w5, but 5's and 9's feel right too??

    What's my Enneagram type?
    I've been doing a lot more reading recently about the Enneagram in general, and am starting to confuse myself somewhat. I've taken several tests, and I always turn up a 4w5, strongly. In many ways, this does feel like the right fit for me, and I resonate with a lot of it. Although there's...
