    I can totally relate to the person who asked that question. I tend to test as any of the four IN types, and I’m not sure what’s what; what is really me, and what is just trauma, or a response to external pressures. The fact that most of the type aware people I talk to have different typings (a couple INTJ, and a couple INTP, even though I personally don’t relate to Te or lead Ti) just confuses matters even more. :/

    At this point, I just want an answer for the sake of not having to worry about it anymore.

    Thanks for the question and feedback Anita. We would love to see an elegant correlation between the Enneagram and Myers-Briggs.

    Not sure we have found a direct correlation yet… but that doesn’t mean there isn’t one.

    Please help the whole Personality Hacker community by keeping your eyes open and letting us all know if you find something that truly resonates with you and seems to make sense.

    Thanks for mentioning it Jian. And thanks for continuing to read and tune in.

    It may take some time and work on your side to finally figure out your type. There is no hurry and we will keep publishing media and articles that should help you on this personal journey of discovery.

    Stay tuned…

    This was an interesting podcast for me. Last year when I stumbled onto Myers-Briggs my parents were in the middle of their divorce. While I wasn’t depressed, I would say I didn’t feel great about myself. I tested out as an INFJ, and it fit (mostly) for about a year.
    The beginning of this year, I started to feel inauthentic, like that personality type was missing it’s mark. For instance, I am very awkward in social interactions, I have (on occasion) offended someone unknowingly, and even though I can be aware of the emotions for people close to me, I wouldn’t say that I “absorb” them. So, I looked at other possible types, looking at both type descriptions and how the cognitive functions come into play (because, let’s face it, there are a few descriptions that can paint certain types in a negative light).
    After all of this research, it seems like the INTJ fits me the best. My “Aha” moment was actually when I read the INTJ article on this website and I read that INTJs can actually be very vulnerable and sensitive (that was the main reason why I thought I was an INFJ, was because of that sensitivity).
    This podcast really helped confirm this, honestly, I would hate to be wrong twice in a row. Thank you for making this podcast, I look forward to more in the future.

    Seven years – that’s terrible! Thanks for bringing awareness to the topic.
