There are nine different Enneagram types in the Enneagram personality system, but statistics suggest they aren’t evenly distributed amongst the population. Considering these differences, the Enneagram has some types that are more rare and some that are more common. So what is the rarest Enneagram type? Among Truity readers, the rarest Enneagram type is Type 7, “The Enthusiast,” with Type 5 “The Investigator” following close behind.
When my sister first told me that she had also tested as an ENFP, my immediate thought was that she was dead wrong.
Clearly, I am the one and only true ENFP! (Sounds just like an ENFP thing to say, yeah?)
I went through all of the deep ENFP knowledge I’ve learned in my years studying personality theory. I took each letter one by one, dug into the cognitive functions, and even compared both of us against characters of the TV show Friends to make my case.
Enneagram Type Sevens are fun, enthusiastic and romantic partners. They enjoy planning creative dates and keeping the spark alive in their relationships. However, they can struggle with having difficult conversations or paying attention to the details.
So, which Enneagram types are the most compatible with the Type Seven? There isn’t one answer. Sevens can be compatible with any of the types as long as effective communication and mutual love and respect are in place.
Having a true partner in crime can be an absolute delight—whether that’s a friend who is always up for an adventure or a partner who says ‘yes’ more often than ‘no’ to your wild suggestions. For Type Sevens, the best things in life are often made better by sharing them. A good bottle of wine, a sunset, an arthouse film or Sunday’s bottomless brunch, are all more enjoyable when shared with someone.
