Perfection: “The state of being without a flaw or defect.”
Before we begin evaluating, let’s think about this enneagram type. Perfectionists achieve high using their logic and organization skills to get them to great places. They do what they do for themselves, not others.
Firstly, perfectionists are introverted. This is due to the fact that they do not achieve high for others, like the achievers. They achieve high because they want to accomplish goals for themselves. This clearly proves that introverts are more likely to be perfectionists.
Perfectionists are more likely to be sensors, due to the fact that they will rely on their senses and repetitive habits to achieve high, something sensors are very good at. For example, if a perfectionist wanted to become a professional soccer player, they would rely on using their senses to constantly practise their shooting. Another example would be if they decided to become an archer. They would be a sensor as they spend the majority of their time improving what they have, not looking for new ideas. Perfectionists also often become obsessed with details, often forgetting the overall goal they are trying to achieve.
Due to the fact that they aim at achieving high in our society for themselves, they often do not consider others as much as feelers do. They focus more on getting their goals achieved before helping others. However, feelers will help others before achieving their goals. This proves perfectionists are strong thinkers.
Most clearly, perfectionists are judgers. This part is pretty obvious. They will not give up on schedules or timetables until they complete a goal. They always try to be more efficient to help achieve perfection in the area they are focusing on.
This clearly proves that perfectionists are ISTJ’s.
