Alright when I have time, I'll create one.
I'm an ENFJ and a 2w3.
The way I see it, MBTI and Enneagram indicate two different things. I see MBTI as how a person operates, and Enneagram as why.
@The World at Large: As for myself, 9 describes a part of me that nothing in INFP describes. It describes a desire for peace, and a major aversion to conflict. Yes, it provides feelings that are then used by my Fi to make decisions. However, so can other Enneagram types. Also, type 9 thinkers use their logic to satisfy the desires brought on by 9.
My INFP actually clashes at times with my type 9. It is pretty common for me to be in situations where I feel guilty for not saying anything (famed INFP values), but also afraid to say anything and start a conflict (type 9 conflict avoidance).
I think that there are some MBTI types that are more common with certain Enneagram types, but I personally don't think that means MBTI type ABCD = Enneagram type E anymore than race X = economic status Y.
I don't know for sure, but I would like to think that there can be people, albeit rare, of any combination of MBTI and Enneagram type.
I think the chart is fine, like those types are most likely to have that enneagram type. But there are exceptions, such as I'm not a 4, I'm a 6, but there's nothing wrong with that :) There's exceptionseven in MBTI, but that doesn't make it less valid.
Those of you who disagree with the chart, feel free to concoct one of your own. This was made by an anonymous member who is familiar with both the Myers Briggs and Enneagram theories.
Yay, I fit! *dances*
I tweak the original a little based on my own observations of members in general. My added correlations might be wrong and people might mistype themselves etc etc but nevertheless this is how I've perceived it. I just add correlations to the original; not restrict them to these types only.
ISTP+INTP as 9's. INFJ+INFP as 5's. ENFP as 4's and 3's. INFJ as 6's and 2's. INTJ as 8's and 1's. ISTJ as 6's. ISFP+ISTP as 7's (unsure about these though).
