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

INTPs And The Enneagram

Enneagram Type Distribution

INTP Enneagram

Type 5 INTPs

An overwhelming majority of INTPs selected 5 as their Enneagram type. As this type is correlated with the INTP’s dominant function of introverted thinking, this is unsurprising.

Both the INTP personality type and the 5 Enneagram type share a desire to understand the world around them in as accurate and logical a fashion as possible. Both types are known for their inherent distrust of the physical world that surrounds them – believing that nothing can be confirmed to be true until it is first analyzed, tested and thoroughly understood.

Type 5 with a 4 wing: 55%

Type 5 INTPs with a 4 wing place a strong reliance on their extroverted intuition as well as their introverted thinking. They are motivated not just to determine how things are, but to also ceaselessly consider how things could be. They are often vividly imaginative and open to profoundly strange theories and thoughts. This type is excited by the seemingly endless onslaught of possibilities that reality presents its experiencer with, and wants to examine as many of them as possible. They may be particularly partial toward recreational drug use, compared to their 5w6 counterparts. This type may bear more of a resemblance to INFP than any other type.

Type 5 with a 6 wing: 45%

Type 5 INTPs with a 6 wing place a stronger reliance on their introverted thinking and introverted sensing than on their extroverted intuition. While they certainly use Ne to consider various possibilities, they prefer narrowing down what is accurate and true to endlessly exploring what could be. This type is more security-oriented than their 5 wing 4 counterparts and may be partial to more traditional and stable career paths. This type takes particular care to ensure that they are always accessing the most accurate and trustworthy information, from the most reliable sources. This type may bear more of a resemblance to the INTJ than any other type.

Ultimately, type 5 INTPs believe that their self-worth is dependent upon their competence. They are constantly moving away from ignorance and toward understanding.
