I am not comfortable experimenting. And that's pretty much all psychiatry/mental health is. After a particularly enlightening argument about a medical rx i take, and my pdoc's entire opinion changed based on a change in fda approval (the medicine was the same, i was the same, this is entirely illogical) i realized the whole situation was not for me.
I've been better ever since!
lol I'm glad that you're doing better without psychiatry. It often doesn't make much sense and is mostly guesswork, but most pdocs have ego issues that make them deny this. I only get on with my pdoc because he agrees that it's mostly guesswork and he can take me questioning or challenging him. But other pdocs have really hated this, and it got tied into my BPD misdiagnosis - apparently, my medical knowledge was how I had been able to 'fake depression' for so many years! And my disagreeing with a treatment plan because it went against NICE guidelines and all current research findings was, like with you, grandiose, argumentative, being difficult etc, rather than the fact that the woman was clearly incompetent!! :roll eyes:

Also, I wanted to clarify that this isn't a thread specifically about MBTI or any other personality models. And I don't want it to be some esoteric thing that people feel that they aren't able to contribute to. I'm interested in hearing personal experiences people have had in terms of their difficulties and/or dealings with MH professionals that they think might be related to their personality. So please feel free to join in everyone

Im an INFP. Ive studied personality theory pretty... thoroughly.

If anyone wants to take THIS test

https://enneagramtest.net

Enneagram is imo even more interesting than MBTI (though again, both are interests of mine) because enneagram is about core fears- what deep down motivates you.

Id be interested in what people get

This isnt a really surprising result. 4s core fear pretty much is feeling... diffferent and misunderstood. They feel cut off from the rest of humanity in a way, like they will not be accepted for who they truly are. In order to fight this fear of not being accepted they tend to try to differentiate themselves from othersz more in a ‘if they are not going to accept me- then I will best them to the punch’

Its one of probably the most creative and intellectual of the types. Also, easily also tends to be one of the most self aware- if not THE MOST self aware. Tend to really understand who they are.

And lol getting into tri-types.

469 is the seeker. Which also, is far from a surprising result. (And also my tritype as well- though I am a 9 core (aka the type that runs away from their problems and denies they exist until- oh crap! Things are REALLY bad!))

Anyways. The seeker type.

“Enneagram Tritype 469 - The Seeker
469 Seeker Archetype

If you are 469, you are intuitive, inquisitive and accepting. You want to be original, certain and peaceful. You are a very sensitive and can experience intense feelings of self-doubt and uncertainty. As a result you need multiple sources of confirmation. You want to be individualistic but can fear being separate from others.

Your life mission is to raise the questions pertaining to the mysteries of life and share your findings with others. A true seeker, you are happiest when you feel you can answer the question of who you are.

You can be so focused on your feelings, insecurities and doubts that you can feel paralyzed by the fear of making the wrong decision and of being misled or duped.

The 469 is a seeker with a lot of self doubt. There is always more to learn when you are this tritype but the desire is to develop a philosophy. the 6 and 4 have the most self doubt along with the 9. The 4 doubts their feelings, the 6 their thoughts. 6s want reassurance, 4s want praise to offset their natural tendency to be shame sensitive. The 4 leading is more concerned with the Who am I question and hopes to ‘someday’ have that answered through constant introspection and referencing their own feelings. I can only speak from my own lens and say that the 6 leading is less identity focused. Who Am I doesn’t enter the picture like the 4, and less reliance on needing to set themselves apart to resolve the philosophical dilemma.”

4s mbti type most frequently as INFJs and INFPs. Followed closely by ISFPs and then probably ENFPs. Though any mbti type can *theoretically* be attached to any enneagram type.

MBTI tends to be... something that you are born with. Its hard to explain, but enneagram tends to be believed to be connected to inner woundedness (aka, everyones parents/environment mess them up in SOME way- and so the ego well... reacts to it)

Im a 9. Titled the “peacemaker” and a positive outlook type. 7 is also a positive outlook type. (And 2 as well... but not talking about 2)

Anyways. Positive outlook types- its not as glamorous as it sounds. It means basically- out of a desperation for the world around you to remain positive- you force it to be in some ways. (Thats more 2- direct force is- 9 and 7 tend to be less direct)

9 runs from their problems. Oh that guy is being nasty to me- “not a big deal, its all fine”. Oh that guy is threatening to hurt me “well Im sure hes just kidding.” Oh that guy is lighting my house on fire... huh... maybe I should have done something about that.

9s number one fear is conflict. So in order to avoid it- they “pretend” everything is fine and escape into a place of “manufactured calm”.

7. 7 escapes elsewhere. 7 is more.

Oh that guy is being nasty to me. “Hey, hey, buddy- do you want to go do something fun with me? Want to do this this this or this thing! Lets leave this place of misery and escape somewhere better! There HAS to be somewhere better!”

7s- which can be wrong and is just a stereotype- are generally known as the “fun guy” of the enneagram. Their core fear is of... missing out. Of really- just being in pain. That there are so many things out there that they cant do it all. ThT there is always something better around the corner- and that if they dont look for it, then they risk being trapped and stuck in their own pain.

Anyways. Hah. This type also tends to be extroverted and most commonly found around people who mbti type as ESTP, ESFP, ENTP, and ENFP.

Though can be found around EXXJ types and IXFJ types.

Intersting....I don’t think of myself as extroverted but I’m getting closer to that....the people in my life take priority over other activities like reading. The bf says I’m not introverted and that he would have gone running if I were that quiet.i wonder if my social anxiety is all that keeps me from being truly extroverted......

I'm an ENTJ and my Enneagram type is type 8, which will surprise literally none of the folks who have been here for awhile and remember me when I was active here.

My personality does influence things, I think it's why I'm so hostile when my psychosis goes in a paranoid direction. I have more thoughts but I can't really catch them right now and I want to read more of this thread too.
