ENFP 1w9 (The Complete Guide)

ENFP 1w9

Charismatic, fun-filled, and infectious optimism. These are some of the words often used to describe the ENFP. ENFP 1w9 is similar but with some variations.

This article discusses the ENFP 1w9 and what you can expect from them.

Who is the ENFP 1w9?

ENFP 1w9 are perfectionists with a laid-back approach. Sounds ironic right? But they exist. This personality type has high standards and tries to always do the right thing. While this is true, their wing reduces the excessiveness of type 1.

Thus, healthy ENFP 1w9s are strong-willed, but not overbearing. They know what they want and go for it. The weaknesses of type 9 are present but are usually overshadowed by type 1. You probably won’t notice them when you first meet an ENFP 1w9.

Type 1 is not the most common enneagram type for ENFPs. That title goes to type 7. However, it’s not impossible to be an ENFP type 1. Their introverted feeling (Fi) compliments type 1 perfectly. The point of conflict might be the perceiving function which is spontaneous and ill-disciplined. That’s why wing 9 comes in to balance the equation.

ENFP 1w9s are slightly more likely to be assertive than turbulent.

What is the Core Desire of the ENFP 1w9?

The core desire of the ENFP 1w9 is to be good and be seen as good. To achieve this, the ENFP 1w9 will strive to be good. If that fails, they’ll focus on maintaining their good image at the very least.

What is the Core Fear of the ENFP 1w9?

The core fear of the ENFP 1w9 is to be evil or seen as evil. “Evil” here means ethically or morally corrupt. This fear could escalate or reduce due to external factors such as their background.

How the 1w9 Changes Some of the Natural Tendencies of the ENFP

1.   Stronger Values/Convictions

ENFP’s auxiliary function is Fi. This serves as an internal guide throughout their lives. Thus, their values or convictions are usually strong. ENFP 1w9s take this to another level.

Type 1 is assertive and ridiculously principled. So, this personality type strictly adheres to their values. This has several implications.

First, it means they have clear boundaries. So, people-pleasing is significantly reduced. It also means that they can be quite stubborn when faced with opposition.

However, because of the presence of their wing, they aren’t overbearing about their values. They might voice it, but won’t force it down people’s throats.

2.   More Disciplined

Discipline is not an ENFP’s strong suit. Yet, it shines brightly in the ENFP 1w9. They have a degree of reliability or consistency about them.

While this is true, the presence of their perceiving function and their wing ensures that they never hit the heights of a true type 1.

3.   Higher Standards

Type 1s are perfectionists. This naturally translates to higher standards for ENFP 1w9s. They want to do things perfectly. They also hold this standard for others.

So, it might be difficult to please this personality type.

4.   More Charismatic

ENFPs, just like ENTPs, ooze charisma. This increases for the ENFP 1w9. They are firm and decisive when making decisions. Their aura makes them admirable and their need to maintain a high ethical standard earns them respect.

Double win.

5.   Work-Life Balance

Type 1s are workaholics. So, expect ENFP 1w9s to work hard at things they enjoy. While this is true, type 9 is not a workaholic. In fact, this type avoids anything that disrupts their inner peace including work.

In the end, it works out perfectly for the ENFP 1w9. They exert themselves rigorously but will have time to rest. The biggest winner is their health.

New Weaknesses of the ENFP 1w9

1.   High Standards Ruined By Complacency

Type 9 doesn’t stop at work-life balance. It also has some negative effects. The high standards sought by ENFP 1w9 will never be achieved consistently because of their wing.

Some ENFP 1w9s might easily experience burnout and will need to take regular breaks to recharge. Their perceiving function and their wing also make it impossible to achieve any level of perfection.

This can take a toll on their self-confidence.

2.   Anger Issues

Types 9 and 1 are both in the anger triad. Thus, anger comes to them easily. ENFP 1w9 is in the same boat. For example, this personality type will internalize their anger when they fail to hit their high standards.

When faced with opposition, they might also choose to suppress their anger. This can be unleashed when they have had enough.

An unhealthy ENFP 1w9 can be very volatile.

3.   Tendency to Judge

As previously stated, ENFP 1w9s have strong convictions. Despite not being overbearing, ENFP 1w9 will internally judge others.

They’ll strongly believe their way is right and silently criticize those who don’t agree with them.

4.   Self-Critical

When ENFP 1w9s don’t meet up to their standards, they can begin to criticize themselves. This has some drawbacks. They might lose their self-confidence. They can also easily become unhealthy and toxic.

They need to realize that perfection is impossible for imperfect humans.

ENFP 1w9 in the Workplace

Creativity is at the forefront of everything the ENFP does. This is also true of their career paths. They want a job that is adventurous and innovative.

This is also true of ENFP 1w9s. Humanitarian jobs might also appeal to this type because of type 1’s love for justice.

Ensure their role demands creativity to get the best out of the ENFP 1w9.
