I'm a complete novice to this forum; I've never even participated in any forum before.
Being an INTJ, I know I don't fit into many categories, but the enneagram test is frustrating me.
When creating my profile on here, I wanted to fill in what my enneagram type is, but when I took the test... I ended up with the following:
Type 1: 7
Type 2: 0
Type 3: 6
Type 4: 4
Type 5: 7
Type 6: 2
Type 7: 3
Type 8: 4
Type 9: 3

I was equally divided between Type 1 and 5... After researching for a few minutes, I found Type 5's have a wing of either 4 or 6. If the Type 1 has a wing, it's a 2 or 9! Some of the types that I was placed into didn't even fit me too well...
How did I end up with a perfect division between Type 1 and 5? Has that happened to any other INTJs?
[I'm not as well oriented with the enneagram system as I am with the MBTI one, but I like to learn about personalities any time I can.]

You might have both 5 and 1 in your tritype?

So yeah, all types' wings will be the number preceding or succeeding that number.

Example: 1's wings will be 9 or 2. 2's wings will be 1 or 3. And so forth.

But you can have one type of each Triad (Heart: 2,3,4, Head: 5,6,7, Body: 8,9,1)

Your core type will be the one you resonate most with. So, for you, either 1 or 5. How much research have you done on both Types? Look at these:

Thanks, the descriptions helped me understand the different types a little better! The wings also make sense to me now.
I think perhaps I am a Type 5 after glancing at the various descriptions.

Do you have an opinion concerning the accuracy of MBTI or Enneagram? I have recently been entirely fascinated with all things MBTI.

I think there's definite accuracy in it, but the way some people choose to apply it really waters it's legitimacy down. MBTI is a good tool to understand people's reasons behind their motivations, and how they deal with people, situations etc.

Some people just dont fit perfectly on the enneagram, imo there aren't enough types, but thats why there are tritypes and wings.
Im a type 2, nice to meet you!
