Enneagram 8w9: The Diplomat
This enneagram type is confident and patient but at the same time protective and will strike if required. However, compared to type 8 enneagrams, they are more gentle and easy going. They prefer to remain calm and stress free when it comes to tasks that are due or responsibilities that they have – it is better to remain calm rather than fret about what one needs to do!
At the same time, these enneagrams enjoy the independence they have and dislike taking orders from other people, especially authority figures. They want to do things their own way in a manner that is easy and comfortable for them. It’s my way or the highway for them! Whether its work, school or any program they are enrolled in, they want to be able to have the liberty of engaging in self paced courses that allow them a great deal of flexibility; they appreciate programs or systems where they are given the end goal and given the freedom to pursue it in a manner that is acceptable to them.
However, this type of enneagram also has issues related to their emotions – especially the regulation of emotions. They do not feel very comfortable expressing their emotions to others possibly because of the fear they have – they do not want to be controlled or manipulated by others. Hence, the 8w9 enneagram will not always express how they feel about someone or something and keep this to themself.

ENTJs – The Commanders
Yes they are bold and strong and make great leaders as they are decisive and value accomplishment! These individuals often bring together people for a united cause by using their charisma and confidence that projects a certain authority people admire!
When it comes to the strengths of these personality types, ENTJs are self confident and energetic. They not only believe in themself but do so with much determination and commitment. They are efficient and strong willed which gives them an extra boost to achieve that they set out to gain and hence impress their followers.
These individuals possess the ability to charm whomsoever they meet and inspire them with their motivation, commitment and desire to accomplish their goals.

Yes they are smart when it comes to planning; they are able to scrutinize the plans they are willing to uptake and improvise whenever required! They are good handlers of crisis situations and can navigate their way out of things.
It would not be immature to say that all these strengths are indeed accompanied by some weaknesses. To achieve much, commanders can sometimes become stubborn and impatient. They are so strong willed that they often refuse to listen to others who might think they need to give up something or wait a bit longer for the right time!
They have a firm belief in what they want to achieve to the extent they consider it pure of any imperfections hence people may consider them arrogant.

The Dominant Functions Of An INTJ.
The INTJ types prefer solitude over social gatherings, are more focused and reflective in their thoughts and can develop deeper understandings which lead to better ideas, solutions and creativity.
Furthermore, introverts can be defined as ‘measured’ people. They think very carefully before they speak and when they speak it is limited. They are better able to process information by thinking over it in their head instead of participating in a brainstorming session. Also, their behaviours reflect their inner world; when they think they automatically become quiet, more focused and reflective while doing so hence their thinking and behaviour is in sync. Hence, don’t get overwhelmed when they don’t reply as fast as you want them to or go quiet. They just need time to think over what you said or what it is they want!
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.
INTJs give weightage to their thoughts and what seems structured or logical rather than the emotions they feel for others. Sometimes this can be detrimental and they find difficulty in understanding the emotional complaints or requests their loved ones have. People with this personality type focus on values like truth and justice and prefer to see the logic or aim of things. They can be described as task oriented rather than people oriented.
INTJs have the judging function hence they are very particular about having schedules; they want to know what needs to be done when and prefer not to have too many surprises in their routines because it affects their work and tasks they need to get done. They will appreciate a person who has much of the things organized and already done.

INTPs – Who Are They?
As introverts, INTPs are more focused on their inner world rather than the outer one. They will expend more time and effort to understand it through thinking, reflecting, imagining and other mental processes . They hence engage in behaviours that allow them to focus on their inner world of thoughts; they are seen as quiet, focused and in the state of ‘reflecting’.
INTPs prefer solitude because this helps them focus on what they love doing. Also, for most introverts, it is just too much of the effort to intermingle and interact with others. Sometimes it is awkward for them or causes them too much anxiety. At other times, it may be because they have to make much effort to focus on what to say or when to say as they take in too much information and find it difficult on how to filter it out. Nonetheless, they prefer spending more time alone rather than with people.
INTPs 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.
Such people give weightage to their thoughts and what seems structured or logical rather than the emotions they feel for others. Sometimes this can be insensitive and they find difficulty in understanding the emotional complaints or requests their loved ones have.
INTPs are perceivers and this may explain why they are able to achieve so much in terms of their discoveries and contributions to the world. Such people are spontaneous; they prefer things that come and go rather than a structured boring plan.
