What are the most common ENTP enneagrams?
What is your enneagram? How does it affect the expression of your personality?
Personal question: How common is 8w7 for an ENTP? Keep in mind that I have a perpetually angry S father.
I thought so at first... however, the more I saw from you the less 8 seems likely. You're most certainly one of the larger ego/aggressive types. I'm thinking maybe counter-shame 3, or 7w8.Im a 8w7roud:roud:roud:roud:
8 is common for ENTP, 6 would be too (mostly counter-phobic 6w5, the more aggressive/assertive type of 6 - often confused with, and mistyped as 8s). 3, 7s, possibly even a few 2s here and there. I don't think type 1 is out of the question.

Personally I don't care what type you pick for yourself, and I'm really not interested in getting into it. I've seen some things from you that are not 8. Take it for what it's worth, and press on.
Thank you, i will look into this and hopefully gain some more insight on myself.
Enneagram Type 3 - The AchieverYou can rule out 6. They typically fly off the handle or set about trying to prove how 8 they are when challenged. My post above was written in preemptive 6w5 style ("you're going to argue with me and I don't want to hear it") , I wanted to see what you'd do with it.
If you have questions I don't mind answering them. I'd start by looking at 3. You seemed to take some pride in the idea that you were an 8, your response seemed more image conscious/self-indulgent. Just keep in mind as you read over the 3 profile, being counter-shame is going to change a lot of it for how it presents with you.
The tests are just bad. The theory is no less stable or harder to understand than any other. There are some things a person knowledgeable about how the enneagram works can glean from the test results. For instance... your results show me that you have a large ego. So we can rule out some of the types.Interesting. I have tried a few online versions of the test, and have got variably 7w8, 8w7, 3w4 and 3w2. The most detailed one I did gave me 7w8. But I don't really know what the wing adds.
I agree that the MBTI is easier to understand and appears to be more stable. Certainly I have gained some insights from the MBTI results, things I didn't know about myself before, but none of the main enneagram types rings a clear bell, many seem possible. All of these typology tests, however, are guides for reflection rather than labels we have to wear, aren't they?
