Incompatibility of Myers Briggs Types

Besides Myers Briggs compatibility models, there are also several theories on the incompatibility of the types that emerged at the same time and have been long studied by psychologists and couple therapists in order to decide their viability. I will present three of them which appear to be the most popular. How reliable they actually are, is something you’ll have to decide for yourself.

Interaction Styles Incompatibility

This theory is based on the Interaction Styles model, which proposes four main categories in which the 16 types are grouped. It is based on four preferred ways of social interacting and it’s usually very helpful in explaining and improving team work dynamics. For more clarity I will summarize each of these categories and tell you where each type fits:

Chart-the-Course: INFJ, ISTJ, INTJ, ISTP
These types are usually talented at planning and determining a feasible couse of action for attaining a certain goal. They’re usually analytical and conceptualizing and shine at for…

Duniho Enneagram Test

Today I've been quite busy - I've went through the Internet archives at WayBackMachine and managed to find the original Duniho Enneagram test (which has been offline for quite some time now).

Enneagram Tritype Descriptions: Type One

This is a list of descriptions for all the Enneagram Tritypes of type One: it explores the flavours that each tritype configuration can bring to this type. Therefore they are by no means complete depictions of type One and must be viewed as additions and orientations of the main characteristics of the leading type (which will remain fundamental).

If you are a type One and have decided on your tritype as well, feel free to leave a comment on how you experience it and how well the specific description fits you. There is always room for improvement.

1-2-5 : these Ones are kind, helpful and altruistic, but also a bit more introverted and reserved. They usually give to others without asking very much in return, mainly because they dislike receiving something from other people. They can have a vague push-pull dynamic to them: they can be very generous and involved with people, but they will as well demand time alone to rebuild their energy and sort out their thoughts. They often have a wise…
