Alright, I'm an ISFP and not very familiar with Enneagram theory. I think I'm a type 4.

"Expressive, Dramatic, Self-Absorbed, and Temperamental"

I don't agree with temperamental, but everything else, sure.

"Basic Fear: That they have no identity or personal significance
Basic Desire: To find themselves and their significance (to create an
identity)
Enneagram Four with a Three-Wing: "The Aristocrat"
Enneagram Four with a Five-Wing: "The Bohemian""

I think this is generally accurate.

Type 5 sounds nothing like me...so I assumed I might be a Type 4 with a 3 Wing. But Type 3 doesn't sound all that much like me, either.

"Adaptable, Excelling, Driven, and Image-Conscious"

Yes, no, no, kind of. (Image-conscious in terms of physical appearance, yes, but otherwise, no).

"Basic Fear: Of being worthless
Basic Desire: To feel valuable and worthwhile
Enneagram Three with a Two-Wing: "The Charmer"
Enneagram Three with a Four-Wing: "The Professional""

The basic fear and basic desire sound like me. However, the achiever thing is not me.

Thoughts?

I took a test, which I hadn't done before, and got 7w6. Here were my scores:

Type 7 - 10
Type 9 - 9.4
Type 4 - 9
Type 6 - 5.7
Type 8 - 3.4
Type 1 - 2

Wing 7w6 - 12.9
Wing 7w8 - 11.7
Wing 9w8 - 11.1
Wing 6w7 - 10.7
Wing 4w5 - 10.5
Wing 9w1 - 10.4
Wing 4w3 - 9.7
Wing 8w7 - 8.4
Wing 8w9 - 8.1
Wing 6w5 - 7.2
Wing 1w9 - 6.7
Wing 1w2 - 4.2

ETA: Type 7 sounds nothing like me. Type 6, a bit, but not at all Type 7.

try not to think about your MBTI too much when figuring out your Enneagram type. It doesn't make it any easier to discern beyond just being able to say what types are most likely or least likely; any MBTI-Enneatype is possible because the typologies have such different approaches to understanding people, so you should leave all possibilities open. :) An ISFP type 4 is definitely possible; one example might be Michael Jackson.
