The INTP Personality is all about developing understanding. The INTP wants to make sense of the world around them and will form an internal map to better understand the world. This can allow them to navigate the world more effectively. The INTP is an experimental type, and functions best when they get out of their head and try new things. This can lead them to expressing themselves better as well as coming up with a completely new perspective they might have missed. The INTP can get in a rut of being in their mind and also sticking to what they know. This can cause them to become too uptight as they aren’t interacting as much with the world around them. An INTP that thinks they have it all figured out can become too rigid and stubborn to enjoy and play with the world around them. This can cause the INTP to become stagnant. The INTP needs to embrace their fun and playful side that allows them to interact with others and develop deeper insight. The INTP works best when they can share their unique skills with the world in a useful and inspiring way. The INTP can be very charming and charismatic once they learn how to express themselves fully.
Enneagram Type 1 (1w9 1w2)
The Enneagram Type 1 is all about being an advocate. The Enneagram Type One wants to deal with what is right and what is wrong. When they are at their best, the 1 has high standards that they hold themselves to. This becomes problematic if they find themselves being too much of a perfectionist and nothing ever gets done. They believe in keeping things in order, and they are also advocates for what they believe is right. This can cause them to fight the good fight. When they are stressed, they can become rather moody. However, when they are feeling their best, they are able to let go a bit more and just enjoy the moment. The Enneagram 1 works best when they are striving to achieve their goals and believe everything is moving in the right direction. They ideally would like to be doing everything right so that they are not criticized. The 1 needs to realize that others may not see their way initially, and that change takes time. However, they need to realize that they may still be implementing change by their well spoken words and ideas, it just might take a bit of time for that to sink in.
