Here Are The Most Common Enneagram Types For Each Myers-Briggs Personality Type

The Myers-Briggs Personality Inventory and the Enneagram of Personality make up two distinct yet highly complementary personality systems.

The Enneagram inventory explains the influences of one’s basic fears and motivations and details each of the nine personality types’ route to self-actualization.

The Myers-Briggs personality inventory explains the cognitive processes of each of its sixteen personality types and explains how to harness and build upon one’s natural mental strengths.

In a recent survey, over 3000 participants indicated their Myers-Briggs personality types and their Enneagram types (including wings and instinctual variants if known). The compiled responses are as follows:

Guardians: ISTJ / ISFJ / ESTJ / ESFJ
Artisans: ISFP / ESFP / ISTP / ESTP
Rationals: INTJ / ENTJ / INTP / ENTP
Idealists: INFJ / ENFJ / INFP / ENFP

Cognitive Functions And The Enneagram


It is important to indicate that the compiled data was entirely based on self-report. Participants were not required to obtain a professional assessment of their type or display an understanding of type theory, therefore a large margin of error must be taken into account when reviewing the results.Thought Catalog Logo Mark
