Discussion Starter #1 (Edited)
Lately I have been trying to get people around PerC to explore the Enneagram forums. I started a few threads (i.e. Please Help) throughout all of the different MBTI forums. Among one of the comments that were left, someone left a list of statistics that was gathered from PerC via the community information (for more detail, click here.). I was greatly intrigued by the stats and took it upon myself to make a complete list.

MBTI and Enneagram, Unknowns Included:




MBTI and Enneagram, Unknown Personality: (click images to open original sizes)




MBTI and Enneagram, All Known: (click images to open original sizes)




Enneagram Types Common For Each MBTI Type: (click image to open original size)


This information was gathered on 19 January 2012 and is based off of the information that was provided from PerC users in their profiles. Please take into consideration of mistypes and the over representation of introverted users (who are more likely to be seen on these type of sites). I know there was already a chart with this information, but it was from 2010 (I believe). I thought an updated one would be nice.

in the final image, you have Type 5 listed twice for ISTPs.

From what I have seen, INFPs seem to be the most interested in MBTI-related topics. That is why we are so over-represented here. In real life, we are pretty hard to find.

INFPs tend not to be Ones, which could explain why I have trouble fitting in, even among my own kind. Interesting.

Type 3 is in eight position for INFP...not surprising at all. I expected INFP 1s to be more common, though. Fi's orientation to the individual makes many INFPs concerned about human rights & personal justice. Also, the way Fi-doms spend their lives creating& striving to live up to ideals that not many can(or, unfortunately, care to) reach seems to align itself with type 1 idealism. IMO, Fi could be correlated with 1 just as much as it is with 4.

I would have thought so too. It is possible that we are more common than we seem, but that we tend to test as fours because most Enneagram tests seem to associate One-ness with SJ-like questions that alienate us.

It took me a long time to realize I was a One. The tests kept misidentifying me based on my negative answers to some of the questions that might as well have asked "Do you act like a crazy, neat-freakish, list-making, 'take your fucking shoes off so they won't stain my spotless white carpet that I vacuumed twelve times today!' unhealthy SJ-type with extreme unmanaged OCD?" :p

edit: Maybe I do. I've already edited this post about nine times in an attempt to make sure it doesn't accidentally offend anyone.

Only 2 types have > 50% of their population within 1 Enneagram type:

1. INTP (type 5): ~69% of INTP's.
2. INTJ (type 5): ~50% of INTJ's.

These two types have relatively large populations too...even the types with smaller populations don't have more than 50% in one E-type. The other types are much more spread out amongst the E-types. E5...must be an INT thang.

@slightlycrazed Usually when I see that a PerC member is trying to do a poll of their own, the final product is rarely posted or the results/conclusions leave something to be desired. This was very well done! Nice work. I hope this gets more people more interested in the Enneagram...the 9 forum is my favorite forum on this site and it is more often dead than not. :)

Actually, I'm constantly typed between En. 1 and 8 on many enneagram test (online). At one point, I stop relying on those tests because I don't relate with the descriptions, as much as I relate with En. 3 descriptions.

Interestingly, the majority of ESTJs (based on that survey) are 3s.


After doing a deeper research and introspection, I decided that my tritype enneagram is 3w4 - 5w6 - 8w9.
I would suggest anyone to drop the tests. :p

So do I. There aren't many INFPs where I live. I've only met maybe three or four in my whole life.
