It's not like MBTI and the enneagram are opposites, they go hand in hand.I've been a fan of all forms of typology for many years now. While I have scored as an ENTP after several MBTI tests, I personally prerer the enneagram (I'm a 7) for any instropection, peace of mind and for leisurely reading. That being said I do strongly agree with how I behave based on the ENTP summary, I just see myself as a 7 more than anything else.
As for your post, I was initially going to skim through it as it's very long (lack of attention spans heavily found amongst ENTP), but realized you made some interesting points and gave it the whole read.
Thank you for typing this out as it's not something I have ever really come across, at least not in the way you presented it. I have been in a heavily extended period of being stagnant, lackadaisical, and distracted.
Taking hours to do something simple, laying in bed for 5 hours before I can even fall asleep, waking up dejected and unable to get out or bed even if I'm technically awake. This has led me to pondering the past few weeks how to best live with the organized chaos I seem to naturally prefer but you have laid out a great blueprint.
An ENTP with enneagram 7 is the most common ENTP out there.
Fun fact: While MBTI (Jung) is all about your personality type and cognitive functions, which remain the same your whole life, the enneagram is mostly about your behaviour, attitude and mentality, which of course can and will change over time.
