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

Cognitive Functions And The Enneagram

Extroverted Intuition (Ne)

Enneagram Type:
NeEnneagram

When the scores for the two intuitive-dominant types (ENFP and ENTP) were combined, both showed a strong inclination toward the 7 type. The 7 type is characterized by a high need for stimulation, a heavy focus on exciting future possibilities and a strong dislike of being constrained or held back, all of which are traits that fall neatly in line with the cognitive function extroverted intuition.

Though the 4 and 2 types also showed a slight correlation with extroverted intuition, these were mostly results from ENFP respondents and the correlation was likely due to the influence of introverted feeling on the ENFP, rather than extroverted intuition alone.

Instinctual Variants:
NeIv

Ne-dominant types displayed a preference for the sexual and social instinctual variants. Both the sexual variant and extroverted intuition are characterized by a thirst for intense experiences and the desire to feel deeply engaged with life. Both the social instinct and extroverted intuition are characterized by the desire to understand others on a deep level, and to find one’s individual place within society or a given group of people.

Introverted Intuition (Ni)

Enneagram Type:
NiEnneagram

INFJs and INTJs display an inclination toward the 5 type. Both the 5 type and the introverted intuition cognitive function are characterized by the desire to understand a situation from every possible angle and they both value competence above all else. A moderate preference for the 1 type was also selected by both Ni-dominant types, and though the 4 type ranked highly in the above chart, the 4 type was selected almost solely by INFJs respondents, indicating that it may only be correlated with Ni if combined with the extroverted feeling/introverted thinking axis.

Instinctual Variants:
NiIv

Though results were dispersed somewhat evenly in terms of instinctual variant preferences for Ni-dominant types, a slight preference for the self-preservation instinct was shown across the board. Both introverted intuition and the self-preservation instinct are characterized by the desire to provide for oneself and obtain an understanding of one’s environment and how to best navigate it.

Extroverted Sensing (Se)

Enneagram Type:
SeEnneagram

Both ESFPs and ESTPs displayed a strong inclination toward the 7 type. Both extroverted sensing and the 7 type are characterized by an intense desire for stimulation and a heavy engagement with one’s external environment. Types 2 and 8 are also displayed as strong correlates in the chart above, however the 2 type was selected almost entirely by ESFPs whereas the 8 type was selected almost entirely by ESTPs – indicating that these types may have more to do with the combination of Se+Fi and Se+Ti respectively, rather than Se alone.

Instinctual Variants:
SeIV

ESFPs and ESTPs displayed a strong preference for the sexual and social instincts. Both extroverted sensing and the sexual instinct are characterized by the need to be deeply and intimately engaged with one’s external environment, whereas both extroverted sensing and the social instinct are characterized by the need to be in tune with what is going on around the user at all times and to be actively engaged in their social environment.

Introverted Sensing (Si)

Enneagram Type:
SiEnneagram

ISFJs and ISTJs indicated a strong preference for the 6 Enneagram type. Both introverted sensing and the 6 type are characterized by the desire to retain the most reliable information that exists in their external environment as a means of maintaining personal security. Type 1 was a common choice for ISTJ respondents and types 2 and 9 were common choices for ISFJs, however these likely had to do with the combination of Si with one’s auxiliary and tertiary function than Si alone.

Instinctual Variants:
SiIV

Introverted sensing dominant types indicated a strong preference for the self preserving and social variants. Both introverted sensing and the self preservation instinct are characterized by the tendency to be highly in tune with one’s physical environment and to understand how to best navigate it in order to remain secure. Both introverted sensing and the social instinct are characterized by the desire to understand one’s natural place within society and to follow the social rules that are already at play.

Extroverted Thinking (Te)

Enneagram Type:
TeEnneagram

ESTJs and ENTJs displayed a strong preference for the 8 and 3 Enneagram types. Both extroverted thinking and the 8 type are characterized by the strong desire to control one’s external environment in a fashion that is directly beneficial to the user. Both extroverted thinking and the 3 type are characterized by the tendency to be highly ambitious and achievement-oriented.

Instinctual Variants:
TeIV

Extroverted thinking did not display any particularly notable correlations with the instinctual variants. However, both ESTJs and ENTJs did show a slight preference for having the sexual instinct in their top two variant stacking. Extroverted thinking and the sexual variant are both characterized by the presence of a personal intensity that drives much of the user’s behaviour as it relates to their external environment.

Introverted Thinking (Ti)

Enneagram Type:
TiEnneagram

INTPs and ISTPs displayed an overwhelming preference for the 5 type. Both introverted thinking and the 5 type are characterized by the desire to understand their external environment in a comprehensive fashion. Both types also displayed a slight preference for the 9 type. While introverted thinking itself does not mimic many traits of the 9 type, the ISTP and INTP’s inferior function, extroverted feeling, often manifests as a desire for peace and connection, which is a key trait of the 9 type.

Instinctual Variants:
TiIv

ISTPs and INTPs displayed a moderate preference for both the self-preservation instinct and the sexual instinct. Both introverted thinking and the self-preservation instinct are characterized by the desire to remain competent and capable in relation to one’s external environment. Both introverted thinking and the sexual variant are characterized by an intense captivation with any topic or situation that catches the user’s interest.

Extroverted Feeling (Fe)

Enneagram Type:
FeEnneagram

ESFJs and ENFJs displayed an overwhelming identification with the 2 type. Both extroverted feeling and the 2 type are characterized by the desire to help and nurture others as a means of achieving social and emotional security.

Instinctual Variants:
FeIv

ESFJs and ENFJs displayed strong preferences for the sexual and social variants. Both extroverted feeling and the sexual variant are characterized by an intense desire for emotional intimacy and closeness. Both extroverted feeling and the social variant are characterized by the desire to find one’s place within social systems and remain connected and in tune with the people in one’s environment.

Introverted Feeling (Fi)

Enneagram Type:
FiEnneagram

ISFPs and INFPs displayed strong preferences for the 4 and 9 Enneagram types. Both introverted feeling and the 4 type are characterized by an emotional intensity that is highly personal and individualistic. Both introverted feeling and the 9 type are characterized by the desire for internal and interpersonal peace and harmony.

Instinctual Variants:
FiIv

Interestingly, the introverted feeling function displayed almost no correlation to any particular instinctual variants. TC mark

Cognitive Functions And The Enneagram

This is me letting you go

If there’s one thing we all need to stop doing, it’s waiting around for someone else to show up and change our lives. Just be the person you’ve been waiting for.

At the end of the day, you have two choices in love – one is to accept someone just as they are and the other is to walk away.

We owe it to ourselves to live the greatest life that we’re capable of living, even if that means that we have to be alone for a very long time.

“Everyone could use a book like this at some point in their life.” – Heather

Let go now
