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

ENTPs And The Enneagram

Enneagram Type Distribution

ENTP Enneagram

Type 7 ENTPs

Type 7 with a 6 wing: 27%
Type 7 with an 8 wing: 73%

An overwhelming number of ENTPs identified 7 as their Enneagram type. As this type is heavily correlated with the ENTP’s dominant function of extroverted intuition, this pairing certainly fits.

Type 7 ENTPs tend to be energetic, explorative and wildly imaginative – placing a heavy emphasis on their extroverted intuition and preferring the pursuit of new ideas to their corresponding follow-through. This type of ENTP is likely to jump from experience to experience throughout the course of their lives – harnessing their natural entrepreneurial skills to cultivate unique opportunities for themselves that deviate from the societal norm. They are highly independent and dislike being constrained, but they have less of a desire to control the world around them than their type 8 counterparts. Rather, they enjoy manipulating their environments for fun, and as a means of avoiding stagnancy.

At their core, type 7 ENTPs are driven by the fear of becoming trapped, stuck or stagnant in their lives. They are constantly moving away from deprivation and toward variety and abundance. These ENTPs are most similar to their sensory-oriented cousin, the ESTP.

Type 8 ENTPs

Type 8 with a 7 wing: 90%
Type 8 with a 9 wing: 10%

A moderate number of ENTPs identified 8 as their Enneagram type. Though this type is most strongly correlated with the extroverted thinking function, the combination of extroverted intuition and introverted thinking can mimic the expression of extroverted thinking in many ways – for this reason, it is unsurprising that many ENTPs identify 8 as their type.

Type 8 ENTPs are often highly entrepreneurial and industrious – harnessing the ingenuity of their extroverted intuition and the focus of their introverted thinking to dominate over competitors in the work force. These ENTPs come across as more assertive than their type 7 counterpoints, simply because they tend to be more focused on what they want. They are quick to establish dominance in social situations and prefer for the power dynamic to always be in their favor. Though both types dislike being constrained, the type 8 ENTP actually has an intense fear of being constrained, whereas the type 7 ENTP simply finds it highly unpleasant.

At their core, type 8 ENTPs are driven by the fear of being controlled or manipulated by others. They strive for power as a means of maintaining complete autonomy and are behaviourally most similar to the ENTJ personality.
