    What MBTI types are most common for each of the Enneagram types?

    I've started to look a little more thoroughly into Enneagram in the past few months, and it's not entirely clear to me which MBTI types would fit into which Enneagram types from reading about the fears/desires. I do have some ideas, but somethings seem less clear. I'd imagine specific cognitive functions have some correlation, too.

    There is some correlation. For instance.. Ne and Se definitely go well with Type Seven.

    Shameless self-promotion:
    Types with wings, MBTI correlation as based on PerC user profiles

    (the last post contains data comparing my sample and the previous two ones)

    the INFP's just did a vote and we came out overwhelmingly as enneagram type 4s (generally agree w5). It would be interesting if we could have a vote for each type, to find out what the overall results turned out to be. This may not work so well on some types, of course, as some types may be less self aware than others. I would also be interested to know what the highest percentage type that shows up here is and also the lowest.

    I'm ISFP. My tritype is below... it's a mixture of ISFP and ESFP according to @aconite 's post

    Meh, I think the connection is mostly superficial and based on people who aren't familiar enough with the system to actually type themselves properly. I highly doubt INFPs are de facto more common to be 4s, and I suspect the overwhelming score towards 4 (and why 4w5?) is because people take a test and think enneagram can be worked out the same way MBTI does as they go off type descriptions, not actually looking into motivations. This isn't true. Enneagram requires far more introspection in a way than the MBTI does.

    The only way for me to ever consider there to be some kind of genuine official statistic would be to take a sample of those who are actually properly typed (or most likely to be) in either system and make a cross-comparison.

    I agree that the enneagram requires a lot more introspection. I don't think you can just answer a few questions and then come up with an answer. I've let friends borrow my enneagram book and some of them still haven't been able to identify themselves even though I may have an idea of what they may be. Perhaps that was because they weren't actually really that interested though and just pretended to read it!

    I'm an INFP and think I'm either a 1w2 or 2w1... although I can see 4 tendencies.

    I think it's hard to correlate because MBTI is about cognitive functions, i.e. the mechanics of how your brain works, and Enneagram is about motives/fears.
