This is because the 7w6 enneagram is someone who loves to explore the world and learn new things and they are also open and curious – these traits reflect those of the MBTI types!
In this article, we will first introduce the 7w6 enneagram type as well as the ENTP and ENFP personalities after which we will proceed to comment on the traits that arise from their unique combinations!
The Personalities – 7w6, ENTP & ENFP
We will now take a look at the following personality types in detail:
- 7w6 Enneagrams – The Pathfinder
- ENTP Personality – The Debater
- ENFP Personality – The Campaigner
The Pathfinder – The 7w6 Enneagram
Extremely enthusiastic individuals with a lot of energy, the type 7w6 enneagram is made up of traits mostly from the type 7 enneagram but also shares some with the type 6 enneagram. These individuals love looking forward to interesting and exciting experiences with a lot of excitement and of course enthusiasm – they never want to miss out on the fun!
Having such a personality also necessitates that they be adventurous. These individuals love to venture into new experiences or opportunities and explore. They will try out new things just for the sake of it and possibly take a lot of risk too if required. The type 7w6 enneagram thus has an explorative trait that allows them to look for and grasp opportunities that they can experience or try out because one of the things that motivates these individuals the most is being a part of experiences.
Regardless of all the fun and exploring, the type 7w6 enneagram is very responsible and they like getting things done on time. They prefer to follow their own schedules but meet deadlines, complete tasks or fulfill commitments as agreed beforehand with another party – in their own way. This is one trait that allows them to successfully pursue relations with others. Being someone who fulfills their word puts them at a great edge in relationships – especially work or intimate ones.
This personality type has 4 dominant functions namely extroversion, intuition, feeling and perceiving. When it comes to extroversion, these individuals are outgoing and love to interact with others!
ENFPs realize the power and beauty of imagination and dreams and this allows them to be creative and more interesting not to themselves only but to each other. How they think can become a good source of conversation for them compared to a person who senses and reacts or processes information. They would be more based on facts and not understand the fun in being so creative.
Although it is usually emotions that blur what is truly going on in relationships, they can also help solve problems that may be difficult to rationalize or understand. Yes it is not always possible to make sense of a situation and hence love and mercy are the only weapons two people have to keep themselves bound to each other. This is important for ENFPs to understand so that they don’t take advantage of their traits.
However, if not balanced well with wisdom, any extreme can create distance between the two persons.
What Is An ENTP Personality Type?
Also known as the ‘Debater’, the ENTP is one of the personality types of the Myer Briggs Type Indicator that is extroverted, intuitive, a thinker and perceiver! They are very charismatic and bold, not to mention creative, mentally agile and persistent.
These individuals like to re-energize themselves by meeting friends and family, socializing at their favorite eatery, taking a walk in the park with their friends or simply hanging out with people they love. What matters is that they have someone to give them company, share their feelings and thoughts with and converse maniacally with any topic that comes to mind. It’s refreshing to connect with others.
ENTPs are intuitive which means they don’t always focus on the facts or what is in front of them. Yes they very much appreciate logic and the relationships they can see however, this does not stop them from thinking out of the box. People who are intuitive are known for making many discoveries in world history and this does not happen by just ordinary thinking; they must go beyond the scope they are given! They give value to their vision, dreams and even imagination and combine that with what they already have in their hands.

In this section, we will describe how the combinations between the 7w6 enneagram and the ENTP and ENFP personality types look like by discussing their major traits!
The 7w6 ENFP Personality Type: The Major Traits
In this section, we will take a look at some of the traits the 7w6 ENFP personality type possesses.
Find it Difficult to Commit
It is difficult for this personality type to commit to someone or something. Whether it’s a new job or a significant other, they will find it difficult to stay committed in the long term. This is possibly because they want to ensure they do not miss out on other opportunities especially if they seem more fit to them!
Yes these individuals are very insecure. They seem to feel unsafe in most situations even if things seem alright. No matter how much you assure them they will still feel hesitant, distrustful, unsafe or panicky. This is not a good trait that they have because it makes it difficult for them to trust others.
Look For Happiness
These personality types are always looking for opportunities or experiences where they can have fun and live in the moment. This is why they are so adamant on not missing out because this is what they thrive on!
Because of how insecure they are, these individuals are very suspicious. They cannot fully trust others and are always staying alert just to make sure they do not miss a red flag.
Look Towards The Future
One good and bad trait this personality type has is that they are focused on the future – a bit too much! Although it is good to think about and plan for the future, focusing on it too much can instill a sense of fear and instability in the 7w6 ENFP personality type.
The 7w6 ENTP Personality: The Major Traits
In this section we will cover the main traits of the 7w6 ENTP personality.
This personality type is quite playful and it is possible because of the influence the ENTP personality type has, especially because of the extraversion function! They love taking part in new experiences and interacting with people just for the fun of it or to learn more about other people and their life. Furthermore, this personality type does not miss out on any opportunities they come across whether it’s a party, a new movie everyone is watching or a course that just came and is relevant to them.
Careless – Relationships
Yes, these personality types may become careless when it comes to relationships! It is not that they do not give their partner their all but they sometimes get careless especially because of their fun loving part of their personality. Also, at the back of their head, they may not be fully committed in the long term to their partner because they might not be sure if this is the right one.
This is particularly because of the 7w6 enneagram because they take a huge amount of stress and anxiety! They are worried about what will happen in the future and tend to ignore the stability their present offers them. Hence, the 7w6 ENTP has issues with anxiety and will remain tense even over small matters or when things seem fine.
Require Support Systems
Although they do not want too much confinement, this unique personality type does want some sort of support system in their lives – this could be family, their work partners or even their close friends. They want to know that they have someone to go to or spend the evenings with.
Yes the 7w6 ENTP does have the habit of overthinking and this adds to their anxiety and fears. They may become over involved with the thoughts in their head that may be about missing out on things, not being happy with what they currently have or uncertainty about the future. Hence, at times this personality type may seem distant or aloof at times.
