Genotypes might have a typical or base Myers Briggs type.  If that is the case then people with different Genotype, but the same MBTI should have different emphasies among their functions.

I am an Explorer - INTP and my iNtuitive score is stonger than all the other scores.  My second score is my Percieving.  These functions are shared with the Explorer "Base" type of ENFP, if memory serves.

What about you?

What is your dominant Genotype, your MBTI type, and the highest scores of that MB test?

Well Paul, I am an A- Explorer....but I am an ESTJ...I has been YEARS ago when I took the test so I don't remember the scores  

So not sure about your theory of genotype and MBTI...but then again us Explorers are different to start with

I'm an INTJ.  The Introversion and iNtuition are strong.  I started doing personality tests in high school and have continued to do them every so often.  For me, Thinking used to be a very high score, but the older I get the closer and closer I keep scoring to Feeling rather than Thinking.  It's now practically borderline between the two.

I am an INFJ.  On the last test i scored 60% introverted, 95% intuitive, 63% feeling and judging.  Only the intuition "N" was picked up by swami as being consistant with a warrior genotype.

remember it well, Paul, all introverts do the opposits at their endings .... (book *gifts differings* ) and as being a 5 swifting to 8 is the integrative way for you... says the ennegram

I experienced lately that I swifted from 5 to 1 meant here is INTP/J to ENTP/J..... and this description sometimes fits better to explorer natures ...
but I think we do show a certain preference to deal with the outer world but also do have stronger traits of all types (of the enneagram and MBTI-types) it always depends of the situation.... of your life....and what kind you're going to affront........
and something else but very important... also the MBTI shows up certain %centages...so far we are both introverts and extraverts....depends of %age and also all about your private situation.....all about tendencies ...

I think the most unhealthy compliment we can get is whithin a meeting of not having seen colleagues during a certain time the outburst: oh you haven't change since...........

Swami-fied Explorer! INTP
Kyosha Nim

My inital point was that

                I am an       I     N     T    P  

              with higher          N           P    scores  (usually in the high 80's or 90's)

typical Explorers are    E    N     F    P

My MBTI type bridges to the typical Explorer type through my higher scores.

It may be that a Warrior who was an INTP might have higher N, T, and P scores since ENTP is the typical Warrior MBTI.  Now the "higher score" is definitely a weak concept, but I would like to see if anyone decidedly breaks the mold.

Genotype   Typical MBTI
Hunter       INTJ
Gatherer    ESTJ
Teacher     ISFJ
Explorer    INFP
Warrior      ENTP
Nomad      ESFP

When Jung wrote about the four functions in the two modes of expression, he was of the opinion that the whole framework might need to be abandoned and organised around different principles.

The MBTI might only be partially successful in this regard.

Some MB-style tests:

ENTJ  with Strong E and N, medium T  with ESTJ - GT ideal.

The strong N is counteridicative of my hypothesis, unless there is incomplete information for Dr. Nash to work with.

I seem to remember different typing for you, JeanB.  You certainly know your way around MBTI if my memory is not playing me false.

If the higher score threshold is somewhere abover 70% your scores might support my hypotheis.

Nomad and INTJ. The ITJ are relatively strong but the N is low enough that I can go S when I need to.

Hi Paul:

I use Myers Briggs everyday at work, I need a little more convincing of how MBTI works with Genotyping.  

When I saw Dr. Nash last summer she didn't fill out the personality section and I tested as a Gatherer based on my genetic medical history.  

I told her my type, ENTJ, and she entered it in the system and it switched me to an Explorer, but she did say, based on what she saw with my sudden weight gain and lots of Alzheimers in the family, that she would stand by the Gatherer geneotype.  I know she is right on with her typing of me.

Yes I don't think that the weighting of the MBTI alone should be changing the direction of medical analysis.  Just looking to see if the MBTI shows strenght in the general directions of the dominant preferences.

INTP looking for the big pattern.

Genotypes might have a typical or base Myers Briggs type.


When we touched on this years ago, it didn't hold up.
And, of course: There are 6 genotypes; there are 16 MBTI types.

Also: Bear in mind that personality typing polls on this Forum have shown a heavy skew in favor of Introverts, which is the opposite of society at large.

Paul ...+- ok I might agree... but remember please all is *virtual* and as mentioned in my first reply, we are both sides, depending up to our %centage of E or I.

and teachers often are similar described as isfp/j's or infp/j's
hunters can be all types -I observed but are merely prone for E/istp/j's and warriors are merely 8'ts in the enneagramm = ENFP/J's as well as some hunters might be...

I think explorers merely are seen as no 1 or 5 in the enneagram =E-INTP/J's

we can't fix that easily, once a while ago an O nonnie member wrote about that issue as well and said she scored normally infj (but surely she's a hunter) but then overlapped with intp which is next to infj as an edge in the enneagram...it really depends of your situation...
and the traits we show to the outer world are only our prefered-ones to deal with the world.... coz inside we are hoppeling around in the enneagram and use nearly all points from da finest ...

btw..integrated  no. 9 or so called isfp/j's seem to be(have )best chances to be confonded with nearly all types coz they show all goodies of everyone listened in the enneagram.....
and I remarked something else.... today for me the most valid system is your personal horoscope!!!
Why...coz it shows up the indicated comparisons...equal if you are living them or not... your full potential is shown....

Paul,

Swamied Teacher (with many explorer qualities)
MBTI test ...ISFJ
Strongest scores....S with F and J very close

The definition of an ISFJ fits me pretty well and I noticed ISFJ fits Teacher.

remember the 80/20% rule

ca. 80% of humans are SF or SJ people, only 20% even less I guess, are so called NT's and NF's...and both match best together coz of their resemblences and I saw also...we need eachother to get completed... NF's need T'sides and NT's need to develop their F-side....

Interesting topic, Paul.  I am a Hunter who is beginning to think I might be better typed as an Explorer.   I typed ENFP.  I don't remember what was strongest, since I did it some time ago.

NFP are all associated with Explorer.  Only the N is associated with Hunter.

I justamente compared the MBTI versus enneagram and must say, sorry we are really all depending of our %-centages both lines E and I..so far no 5 is nothing then the introvert formula of no 1, only the context sometimes might be a bit different...or better said themata or preferences... but indeed all types show up very harsh similarities... and I don't know if that matters that much ....to grasp a sort of
resemblences... might even be swiftings between 1/9 and 1/2 are normal but described as a no-go.... I'm no more thaaat convinced...sorry....... ok ok..another system....

btw... "Don Richard Riso & Ross Hudsons" explanation of *the wisdom of the enneagram* is one of the very best and accurate describing  books I've ever seen...
