Which MBTI type is the thinker? (Enneagram 5)

Thinker: “Someone who exercises the mind.”

The thinker is an easy enneagram type to analyze. The thinker is often described as perceiving, logic thinkers who are individual deep thinkers. This one sentence summarizes the whole type. However, to make things easier this type will be simplified.

Thinkers are most likely to be introverts. This is due to their constant need to think inside their head, often about new theories. They often isolate themselves from others to think up new ideas, and they spend a lot of time by themselves on their topic of interest. They usually do not focus on subjects that don’t interest them and prefer to spend time on the subjects that they enjoy.

Thinkers are usually intuitive, and they are typically the bad characters seen in movies who want to rule and destroy the world. They spend most of the time using their intuition to think about their future and their dream which they want to one day achieve, as is their life goal.

Thinkers are usually the thinking type, which makes sense since the title says it all. Thinkers are less caring about human relationships and more about what will logically benefit them the most. They enjoy being isolated from others to work on their topic of interest.

Thinkers, as stated in the description, are perceivers who view the world and see how they can change it. They are analyzes who want to change the world to their vision and what seems right to them. This clearly proves that INTP’s are the most likely to be thinkers.

    Well, this is how someone may think. People can wind up in circles. When the eventual social systems of political favoritism knowingly lead nowhere, the interest fades and may deter further activity. Dead men tell no tales.

    Life is not a movie though. Not without thoughts.

    I personally do not like enneagram, as I think it lacks any kind of scientific credence. I find the categories are far too rigid. Yet again, I haven’t read the books on it.

    I’m a 5w6. I’m pretty sure that 6 is a common wing to have with 5. My mbti is INTJ if that helps at all. INTPs and INTJs aren’t that different from each other. 5 sounds like it could be the essential NT personalities (ENTP, ENTJ included).

      I agree that MBTI is better to use; I use enneagram as a second source, as MBTI can be used to determine personality and enneagram is good to confirm their type and determine the person’s motivations.

      I’ve done a bit of research and found that INTPs tend to be 5w4 and INTJs are 5w6,
      this makes since, INTJs are more scientific “troubleshooters”
      INTPs are deep thinking, philosophizing “idiosyncratic”

      ENTJs and ENTP are both 8s. they are very willful people and they probably have either 5 or 6 as their secondary trait.
