This post will compare the multiple differences between 126, 136 and 146 tritypes.

The 3 tritypes concerned with having ONE and SIX fixes (126, 136 and 146) display those behavioral and psychological patterns :

• Anger and Fear merge into a rule-abiding, security-seeking personality. Those three archetypes are naturally geared toward seeking certainty and noticing inconsistencies in their environment and setting metrics according to moral standards. This make them very methodical and procedural;

• Double Compliant stance ; the need to adhere to external and internalized rules, social conducts and do what's expected of them is amplified;

• Responsible, security-oriented energy;

• Neutral energy, maybe slightly masculine;

• The internal standard-seeking, rule-defining ONE is at odds with the external standard-seeking, rule-abiding SIX;

• There is real conflict between the ONE's need for independence and create leadership and the SIX's search for external certainty and security following;

• Most likely combination to be seen as responsible, trustworthy and hardwoking;

Differences Between Archetypes :

Leadership Style

• 126s are more likely to be democratic and let other people take the lead at times. They also prefer to take the role of the adviser than the actual chief of operations;

• 136s are comfortable in the shoes of a leader and can be very good at implementing changes for the sake of results. They can be more bossy and less empathetic;

• 146s prefer a more behind-the-scene type of leadership and like to take the role of an adviser over the one of a commander;

Anxiety Management

• 126s ease their anxiety by comparing and adjusting to the current standards of their teammates and managers; they may also create relationships in order to reduce their fear of being unwanted and not enough;

• 136s reduce they anxiety levels by focusing on their goals and increasing their efforts too achieve what they want;

• 146s reduce their anxiety by questioning the underlying reasons that cause them to be anxious in the first place. They are thus able to better predict and anticipate future anxiety episodes by doing this;


• 126s are sensitive to the relationships that they create and bond with because they serve a strong underlying need to be present for others and to be needed;

• 136s are sensitive to the overall work that they produce and how it is percieved by a select group of authories. They want to preserve they integrity and successful image at all costs;

• 146s are sensitive to the impact that they have on others and the significance behind it all. They are also very sensitive to their own doubts and making the right choice;

Potential Problems

• 126s forget their own needs and overfocus on other's. They can appear nosy, controlling and nagging because of their overwhelming presence they can give to people when trying to help and educate others. They can also feel self-righteous and militant about their values and causes which can irk some people. This archetype can also become too anxious and self-conscious about its own impact on their environment, constantly ajusting itself in order to meet internal and external standards, which can become exhausting for them;

• 136s is the tritype that is the most at risk of losing themselves into their work and thus can become workaholics. They may be uncomfortable about not doing a task correctly and can be anxious if they feel that their work is not good enough. Since they are so adamant about making a difference in their workplace, they can become downright tyrannical if they are in a position of leadership and don't keep their perfectionnisitic tendencies at bay. Addtionally, they can become suspicious of people who don't want to cooperate and show an air of rebelliousness and can make them pay their way of seeing things;

• 146s often have the tendency to challenge and put in question every tidbit of information that seems off or too superficial according to them. While they might refrain from saying what they've go in mind in fear of appearing impolite or annoying, this can make them very critical and judging of other's opinions and make other people turn their back against their numerous advices. This is problematic because they only wish to prevent them from making erroneous judgments and putting themselves into hot waters. This triype may reconsider their communication style and reduce the amount of advices and opinions that they give out in light of all this;

Patterns & Structure

• 126s are triple compliant and hesitant. This means that this archetype has all the three enneatypes in each center of intelligence that try to adjust itself to the moral viewpoint and expectations of its environment in order to feel included, safe and appreciated. This tritype is very helpful and need to meet (and often surpass) the authority's expectations for the sake of being satisfied with its own inner standards. Self-preservation subtypes of this archetype are anxious indiviuals who almost always veer into the secure side of things if something doesn't feel right or is off. They are very perfectionistic in all they do and can be overly cautious in doing so. The sexual variant is less focused of safety in the material sense and more concerned about faithfulness in their intimate relationships. They don't fit the stereotypical compliant stance of this archetype because they can spring into action when needed and are more in touch with their instinctual nature. However they are quite rigid about everything going their way and can manifest their anger in a surprising intensity. Social subtypes are the most rigid and rule-abiding of the three variants. They embody the teacher or role-model to turn to and follow and can be quite prideful in doing so. This is also a very militant subtype;

• 136s are triple doing and industrious. This means that this archetype has all the three enneatypes in each center of intelligence that need to provide excellence in their work and typically won't stop perfecting their game until they are meeting or surpassing expectations. This tritype often want to meet societal standards and be seen as an example or a role-model in their community (especially if social dominant). Self-preservation subtypes are humble and very practical. They are often anxious about performing their best in order to secure what they've earned and are generally quite disciplined and frugal in life. They often can be stuck in a rut and beome overly rigid in their routine and lifestyle. Sexual subtypes are a little more charismatic and able to act faster than self-preservation subtypes. They can be surprisingly emotional about what they consider dear to them but can also be controlling and testy with the people they don't trust. Social subtypes are the ones who seek recognition and fame the most and can work really hard to attain it. They like to show off what they are made off and like to be seen as exemplary or a moral icon;

• 146s are triple critical and judging. This means that this archetype has all the three enneatypes in each center of intelligence that want to submit external information to their inner critic in order to form an opinion about it and subsequently approve or dismissit it. While they are often seen as negative and pessimistic in their attempt to analyze the world, they actually possess tremendous wisdom and want to use it in such a way that would prevent people from experiencing pain, distress and/or being careless with their talents. Self-preservation subtype is very much concerned with tangible and financial security above all. The FOUR component is a little less outwardly seen here, as the ONE/SIX combination naturally enhances the security and anxiety aspect. This is the most prudent and reasonable 146 archetype. The sexual variant is more concerned about how to anticipate and prevent emotional ruin to consume people and therefore make excellent therapists and life coaches. They are usally very sensitive to emotional bonds they create and maintain and can get very controlling at times if they feel that this link is in danger of being severed. Social subtypes of this tritype are usually involved in social groups or organisations that cathers to the need of some type of individuals, often folks that are marginalized, hurt or can't help themselves;

Possible Mistypes

• Self-preservation FOURS with a 146 tritype can look like a 136 because of them being the countertype of their enneatype;

• Social TWOS with a 126 tritype may be tempted to identify with the 136 archetype, especially if possessing a strong THREE wing;

• Sexual THREES with a 136 tritype may look like a 126 or a 146 because of the access to emotions, that which the other two subtypes have a harder time accessing to;

• Sexual ONES with a SIX fix can look like being a core EIGHT because of the anger manifestation being easier for this subtype;


• 126s' most common MBTI types are : ESFJ (216), ISFJ (621), ENFJ (216), INFJ (621) and sometimes ESTJ (126). As you can see, this archetype is very feeling and judging oriented and it's uncommon to see thinking types with this tritype;

• 136s' most common tritypes are : ESTJ (136), ISTJ (163) and maybe ESFJ (361). This archetype is the most recognizable when paired with STJ and are almost never seen as an SP, NF or NT;

• 146s' most common MBTI types are : INFJ (461), ISTJ (614), INTJ (614) and sometimes ENFJ (164). They is mostly introverted judging and intuitive types here. It's very rare to see an SP type with this archertype;

Miscellaneous Differences

• 146s have more access to their inner life and overall sensitivities than 126s and 136s, who in turn are more outward-oriented;

• 126s usually have a more soft-spoken and diplomatic communication style than 136s who are more abrupt and bossy;

• 136s will work until they are exhausted if they feel that's the way they should act while 126s will consider talking to someone if they have a problem achieving something;

• 136s are the most prideful and decisive-looking of the three archetypes, while 146s is the most doubtful and questioning;

• 126s are more likely to readily give out advices in order to create a bond between someone; 146s will probably hesitate and filter their intuition through their judgment before doing the same thing;

• 136s are the most active out of the three archetypes while 146s are the most passive;

• 146s can really doubt their own capacity to be competent and fair as they are constantly questioning everything. 136s try to avoid doubt by overfocusing on actions;

• 126s are often giving too much of their time in order to be appreciated and loved; 146s are more removed from the social scene and can therefore be more independent;

• 146s are more introverted than 126s and 136s;

• 136s and 126s can avoir looking at their needs so much so that they can crash and be more prone to sudden burnouts and depression. For 146s, the pain is more readily felt;
