Enneagram (Main) Type & MBTI Correlations

Kopie von Visual Content You Need to Use

This MBTI/Enneagram overview is based on my typings of celebrities and other people in real life, as well as my understanding of the Enneagram and Jungian types’ traits, and how they interact.

Note: Fictional characters may have main types which cannot be found amongst “real” people “in real life”, and hence are not part of this overview.

Read this for more info about the 9 Enneagram types specifically.

Read this for differentiating common MBTI mistypes.

List of Enneagram Types

1w9: INTJ, ISTJ, (ENTJ-Ni)

3w4: ENFP-Fi, ESFP-Fi, ENTJ-Ni, ESTJ-Si

4w3: ISFP

4w5: INFP, INFJ, ISFP-Fi

5w4: INTJ, INTP

5w6: INTP, INTJ

6w5: ISTP, INTJ, ISTJ, ISFJ-Si, ENFJ-Ni, ESTP-Ti, ESTJ-Si, ENTJ-Ni, (INFJ-Ni, INFP-Ne, ISFP, ESFJ-Si)

6w7: ISTP-Se, ISFP-Se, ESTP, ESFP, ENTJ-Te, ESTJ-Te, ISTJ-Te, ISFJ-Fe, (ESFJ, ENFJ, INFJ-Fe, INFP-Ne, INTJ-Te)

9w8: ISFP, ISTJ


Notes:

• For example, ENFJ-Ni means an ENFJ with stronger, more favoured Ni than in the case of an average ENFJ. ENFJ-Ni, ENTJ-Ni, ISTJ-Te, INTJ-Te, etc. usually feel as if they were “ambiverted”.

• Type combinations in brackets are more rare or rather unlikely to exist.

      • Hey, so I’m an INTJ 8w7. I’m pretty sure I’m an INTJ and I’m pretty sure I’m an 8w7. How did you come up with this theory? I understand that there may be some correlation between mbti and the enneagram but sometimes things aren’t as cut and dry. I also have a friend who is an INTJ 3w2. What are your thoughts on this?

      • I used to be quite open to the idea that certain introverted types might be Core 8s, but in the course of my typings and observations and delving more deeply into the theory, it emerged to me that 8s are quintessentially extroverts that impose themselves on their environment, which usually requires both strong Te and to some extent Se. (A similar dynamic exists for 3, another “extrovert” type through and through, for their first view is externalized, outside of themselves, which is a classic trait of Jungian extroversion. https://typevolution.com/2018/07/26/jungian-extroversion-introversion/) An INTJ, who has weak Se and whose first function is introverted, does not seem to fit that trait.

        However, I might be convinced of an alternative in a typing session. If someone emerged to score high as both Ni-Te ego, as well as 8 (or 3), I might be convinced. But I won’t change my view based on anecdotal evidence. Also, our definitions or understanding of the “INTJ” personality (or enneagram 8 and 3) could be significantly different. For example, you might think being afraid of vulnerability is the main marker of 8, whereas it could just be a sign of an avoidant attachment style. So in your model, INTJ 8 is possible. But for me, the “Strategist” is most likely not able to be an 8. I’d recommend you to check out my Entrepreneur and System Builder descriptions, there is a high chance you might actually fit one of those better. Once again, this is ultimately my interpretation of the Jungian types. You can reread the Strategist description and ask yourself, does this suit the archetype of 8 well? Or does it rather fit different types. https://typevolution.com/2019/03/10/overview-enneagram-types/

  1. I’ve taken Enneagram and MBTI online tests. The results were interesting, to say the least:

    Enneagram – 4w5 98% (taken once)

    MBTI – ISTP, INFP, INTP with ISTP dominant

    How does this fit together?

    • If the Enneagram result and one of the MBTI results is correct, then from those three types, you’d have to be INFP (with stronger Ti than average).

  2. Hi I’m an infp 549 and I very strongly relate to type 5. But I’ve heard a lot of people saying that’s not possible, are there any other infp 5w4s here?

  3. I’m an ISTJ and a 5. I once took a test to rank my cognitive functions and got Si Fi Ti Te Ni Ne Fe Se (Fe and Se were basically nonexistent).

    I believe I’m a 5w4 rather than a 5w6. Does this seem likely based on your expertise?
