Enneagram 7 is the least overthinking, if anything. And theoretically both ENxP's and INxJ's are less likely to overthink than INxP's, because they're respectively energised by action and goal-oriented/more decisive.enneagramm:5 ,6,7 because thinking type. Mbti:ENxP and INXJ because N domAny type can overthink to be honest.

MBTI type of Overthinking

.Even yet focusing on Introverted Sensation vs Extroverted intution. Jung's insights were: ################################# 3.

Find out about Overthinking personality type

. Sensation (mostly men): emphasis on perception through the senses (..Information about Myers Briggs Type Indicator of Overthinking..)b.Which of the 16 personality types is Overthinking?. Introverted: emphasis on the sensation. (1) They are sensitive and imaginative. (2) The introverted sensation types are sometimes difficult to understand; because they are overwhelmed by impressions—they see things that are not there, e.g., fiery dragons as faces in automobile grills. (3) E.g., engineer, artists, musicians. ################################## (4) Intuition: ( intuition via the unconscious) tells of future possibilities and gives information of the atmosphere which surrounds experience. The definition of this function: a perception of realities which are not known to consciousness and which go on via the unconscious. a. Extroverted (1) They dislike safe, familiar, or well-established things. (2) They often have the capacity to inspire in hopelessly blocked situations. (3) They use judgment or diagnosis without an objective basis. They are often effective in new situations where there is no established way to deal with those situations. (4) When mistaken, the extroverted intuitive type can lead many people to ruin. (5) E.g., traveler, temporary leader. ################################# Were indicative of that Extroverted Intuitives were still having that light attitude and Introverted Sensors had that worrying attitude that led them to overthinking traits.If we start from the proven theory about I/E temperaments, Jung said: ################################# 2. Introverted Attitude: characterized by an inward flowing of personal energy—a withdrawal concentrating on subjective factors. The introvert is usually ... happy alone with a rich imagination, and prefers reflection to activity. //Clear indicative of overthinking and self-reflection attitudes... In the other hand. ################################# 1. Extroverted attitude: a standpoint characterized by an outward flowing of personal energy (libido)—an interest in events, in people and things, a relationship with them, and a dependence on them. The extrovert is usually motivated by outside factors and greatly influenced by the environment, sociable and confident in unfamiliar surroundings, less cautious, less fearful, and likes organizations, parties, and tends to be optimistic and enthusiastic. //There's an obvious state of light personality that flows on the exterior, extroverts think, but they don't overthink normally, because they rely on the external world much further than on the internal world.Why do introverts overthink? Why should we explain a proven basic fact of the Jungian theory as introverts are self-reflective and inner thinkers? Well, because functions, again. You're mistakenly attributting thinking(not Objective over Subjective, but the basic meaning of thinking) attitudes to the role of a function, instead of focusing what does that function mean temperaments-wise.You literally didn't explain anything. All you did was make assertions@PikUp I'm explaining everything I assert. Just because you don't understand my reasoning doesn't mean I'm not explaining myself.@szero Nah I made the comment to mess with my brother, not the whole thread lmao@kl I remember you saying you made it just to mess with your brother or something, my mistake then.You haven't explained a thing my dudeI've never created a page on here. I'll check it out though. And yea thats why I was saying I use Ne more. I tend to focus more on Ti whereas the Ne just seemed to come naturally since basically forever. I come up more Ti on most tests because as I said I tend to focus it more.I use Te more than Ni according to that test but I'm still INTJ. I don't see this line of conversation going anywhere but there's also the fact that a lot of people don't realize how much they actually use their dominant function because it's so easy and almost automatic for them to do so. Anyway, I also left a comment for you about Enneagram in the ENTP vs. iNTJ page you made earlier, check it out if you want to.Because I use Ne more than Ti.I don't remember if you already answered this but why do you think you're an E, though?Can really make an argument for one over the other with those results though, my Fe and Si both suck.I've taken many a function test lol. I tend to come up ENTP or INTP.Hey @kl, take this test as give us the result (with a screenshot preferably): do I have a burden of proof? i explain my reasoning.What I'm not getting is why burden of proof is such a foreign concept to a supposed ENTPYou didn't argue anything though. You just contradict yourself, call people close-minded for disagreeing with you and don't back up your arguments with any sort of facts or reasoning. Just baseless assertionsI'm not saying you can't put me in a box I'm just giving you what I personally think and arguing it. You guys are getting so mad about nothing lolThis whole "you can't put me in a box" mentality and identifying as something even though it's not how you areNo you idiot, it's a contradiction. You can't be someone who is more extroverted than introverted while simultaneously be the most introspective you dolt >.> if functions have no limitations than there's no mbti, no functions, no types. You're trying to have your cake and eat it too. Grudge against extroverts because why? Because I said that they're not more introspective than introverts? Are you serious rn? I'd also say an introverted type can't be the most charismatic or socially skilled@kl HEY I JUST TOLD YOU FUCKHEADAlso please tell me how you know I use Fi, I'd love to hear it.You would be heavily implying it based on the fact that in a sense you say "x type must act a certain way based on a function", and then telling me I don't understand the functions very well. And yes, the functions in fact do not have limitations, because they're used differently in different people. You also seem to have a grudge against extraverts for some reason, in these threads it seems you tend towards the opinion that introverts can do or be whatever and extraverts are more limited.And who said they were? I didn't. If you need to straw man what I say to win the argument than maybe you should consider shutting up. You don't seem to understand the functions well. You just define Ne however you want, it has no limitations to you. And that's especially evident when you say things like an extroverted type is most prone to overthinking. You seem to not even understand extroversion or introversion. I never said Ik your type. Just that you're mistyped. But you clearly have Fi. I don't need to be an Ne dom to understand Ne.What ego are you talking about? I'm just pointing out the obvious that everyone in the world isn't just a clone of the same 16 people. I said I don't get how you would know more about my dominant function than I do because that makes no sense, obviously the person who actually uses the function would know more about it. I determined my type because I looked to what the functions actually meant and fit myself into one of the broad categorizations. You can fit into a vague generality (which is what the MBTI is) without having to be the exact same as everyone else in that category, sometimes not even close. Also you mentioned I was most likely mistyped? Well then good sir, why don't you type me then and tell me what type (you think) I am.5w6 or 6w5 would be ennea types most prone to it maybeattributing functions to "overthinking" is counterproductive because you're not gonna find much of a correlation with any of those and looping thoughts around in your head because you're stressed. it is, however, in your head and generally caused by stress/anxiety/something that's bothering you, so ixxx-t would probably be more prone to it than any other set of types, and probably an intuitive type overall being slightly more likely than a sensing type because they'd be more likely to be disconnected from the immediate situation and mulling it over, but i wouldn't call that as strong as introversion and turbulenceFor the record to all, Ni Ne Si Se are not consider as rational function, because they don't judge/make a decision, they just process the information. Ti Te Fi Fe on the other hand are consider the rational function. They are the decision maker. E vs I, again it E focus on what we interpret/perceive in our world. I focus on what we interpret/perceive in our inner word. Therefore I functions are consider subjective; E are consider objective. Objective doesn't have anything to deal with real/fake, but more pertains of preference of range/capability to reason and understand. Some people reason based on how the world actually works. Other based on how ideally/should the world works. As for ENxP either Ti overload or Si stressing is causing overthinking. INTJ may appear to overthink or they claim to be, but that is more of because they are giving a vague image of what they think is going on, and run with it in their mind, and they try to reason in the most logical and tangent. That doesn't make them necessarily an over-thinker or they are correct etc.And I love how you get on your high horse telling people to be more open-minded while at the same time dismissing shit that you disagree with. You don't even give any reasoning. Just this lame preachy bullshit "people are different, can't put them in a box" if anything goes then there's no system, you realize this, right? How did you determine your type if categorizing is "close-minded"?"I'm an Ne dom, you're not, therefore I'm right" is not a valid argument. Especially considering your faggot ass is most likely mistypedNo, you call me close-minded because I don't feed your fucking ego and tell you what you want to hear. I said Ne is not deep, I never said Ne doms are not deep. You're a narcissistic moron who doesn't understand the system. Extroverts overthink things more than introverts? You're a fucking moronIn other words PikUp, If you look around you, there's more than just clones of the same 16 people.There ya go, some extra things to factor in besides just the base function order which doesn't necessarily tell anything about a person, how they act, or how much they think.i would attribute overthinking to introversion and intuition but most of all turbulence/neuroticism depending on context@PikUp There's billions of different possibilities and combinations that make up a person (MBTI, Enneagram, Subtype, ect.), you can't just say "Ne isn't deep" or "ENTPs don't over think" and shut the door on that, many Ne doms are deep, some are not. SOme over think, some do not. This is why I say you're closed minded, you take a broad category and basically say "everyone in this category is exactly x and cannot possibly ever be y", when in fact there are infinite possibilities of how a person can work.@PikUp Still questioning how you (apparently) know more about my dominant function than I do.@Drifter Well then by your way of looking at it, I'm an INTP. Congrats on being an idiot.@kl Ne is not deep, it's broad. That's the difference between extraverted and introverted functions. If Ne was broad and deep then there'd be no reason for Ni to even existHe's INTP who mistyped as ENTP and yet you agree with him. Extrovert live in external worldHe's INTP who mistyped as ENTP and yet you agree with him. Extrovert live in external worldI dont. Introverts are stereotypically more anxious, extend issues and reasonate just by themselves. ENPs ramble with ideas and have a more live the present attitudeI agree with 5tar, I think ENxP overthinks the most.Te gathers as much info as possible and Ne is similar in that it looks at all ideas from different angles. Then mix that with Ti or Ni and the individual digs deeply into a wealth of knowledge. So INTx, probably INTP a bit more so. ISTPs and INFJs may have TiNi but one is tertiary. Also our auxillary functions are much more externally focused. It creates much more of an imbalance within the individual I think.I'm surprised ENTPs or ENFPS aren't even an option. Ne-doms are always seeing all possibilities which may cause them to overthink and get paranoid especially when under stressful situations. I'm an ENTP and this happens to me all of the time.INFJ I know is an overthinker to the point it makes him go totally insane, so he uses music to escape; he could be listening to music 10 hours daily (headphones).I - thinks more then E (thinks more before acts) N - thinks more then S (imagining possibilities, planing the future, etc - S usually acts more in the concrete world) T - thinks more then F (thinking x feeling) P - thinks more then J (P likes to start new things, when J likes to complete and finish things) Ti-Ne-Si functions seems to be very overthinking to me. INTP@scotty: Either you don't understand how Ni-Ti works or you put too much focus on the MBTI dichotomies, rather than the Jungian functions.@Martian. Generally you're correct in that point however INTP do tend to be the most thorough thinkers. Ni doms only think around their preferred area, even overthink but INTP would go through everything is a detailed manner. It sounds more like overthinking I think. The Ti-Ne-Si combination makes INTPs the best thinking type when it comes to completeness and thoroughness.I was reading Jung where he described Ni doms going to there accumulated insights over and over again and taking their time to make a synthetic idea. It sounds like overthinking. So looks like it can't just be one type.If Ne is likely to think through everything why not ENTP?INTP far more likely than Ni-doms, it's the Ne that makes ones mind go in all kinds of ''what if's''. Meanwhile Ni-doms ''what if's'', are more concentrated alongside a narrower path, but Ne goes in all directions at all times and yeah... People who aren't NPs should feel likely.Also, Ni-doms aren't as concerned with getting it exactly right as the Ti-dom, they're main cognitive process is more organic than the step-by-step/analyze this and that of INTPs.Anyways who is creating these entries and then expecting a reasonable discussion? Whats next?Thinking over something over extended period of time. Any introvert or introspective type would do that. There is no one way of thinking and that is why this entry is full of bullcrap. An INFP would overthink her ideals. An INTJ would overthink his plans. An INFJ overthink her visions. Or literally anything. Arguing that one type thinks more than the other is ridiculous. If it was overthinking linear logic than I'd say 100% of the time INTP would trump any other but its generic and therefore any vote for any introverted type is equally valid.If the act of thinking has nothing to do with type, why are you even arguing for a type? You know very well what people mean by overthinking.Yeah. Non linear logical thinking. Nothing stops them from holistic, non linear thinking. The act of thinking has nothing to do with type.MBTI F is the non-preference of Jungian logic.INTJ and INFJ are very likely to be overthinkers. The definition of Ni is viewing the same insight from all possible angles and uniting it into one synthesis. However Ti is most prone to overthinking especially INTPs. Thinking as thought of ordinarily is done by ALL individuals of all types. You're confusing the act of thinking with Jungian thinking. Jungian thinking is preference of logic, not ability to actually think.Yeah i think "overthinking" in both those types manifest themselves in different ways but your interpretation makes sense. An INTJ is more likely to rigidly plan everything through thinking, and also create blind spots as a result of constructing an intricate and long train of thoughts that can be derailed. An INTP is more likely to think about a bunch of stuff that has no practical value and doesn't really matter for anything other than satisfying the INTP. INTJs over-"think ahead of themselves". INTPs over-think tangential stuff.I'm more on INTP because they're much more likely to think and get sudden thinking states to self-realizate meanwhile INTJs trend to do for realization of goals instead, also, this could sound pretty stupid, but I'm more on a T-dom to overthink that on a T-aux.The only two types that make sense are INTP and INTJ.Lol that INFJ vote just shows how far people will go with their function magic. What do overthinkers do? They over- what?

All thinking enneagramm type (5,6,7) overthinking often ,4w5 is a stupid vote. over thinking is more often with N dom so any ENP or INJ can fit to this description

Not one 5w6 vote?

7w8 (basically ExxP types) overthink more than 4w5 (mostly NF'S + ISFP + more INTx's)? Very interesting theory

Anyway 5w4 do this the most in general as a habit, because they are more detached and inside their minds, though 5w6 could become more obssesive in some cases i guess, but yeah 5w4 take this

7,6,5 overthink in different way (6 in paranoid way ) (5 in over rationalize thing around them in putting signification they may not have) (7 overthink they have thousand idea in one second and want to share it) 4 are just over feeling.

Fg use functions :P

It's an enneagram post, why i will use function on enneagramm?

I know, i know. Just wanted to rile you up a little. "over thinking is more often with N dom so any ENP or INJ can fit to this description". I think Ti-dom is more fitting, especially Intps.

Ne + Ti the possibilities are endless.

Ne + Te would eventually organize things and stop "overthinking" once certain ideas/ways of thinking (isms) / algorithms are thought by the Te-user to be more important than the other

This can really be any N to be honest

Josephty1 we all know this is your alt

I actually have no idea who tha is

it changed my vote from 6w5 to 5w4..

Serious question which is better? Over-Thinking or Thinking-Over.  

as a 4w5 I have to disagree with you, we can also overthink a lot, it's just mostly for emotional reasons. I might think for days about a comment that someone made that hurt my feelings because I felt criticized. I might constantly imagine similar situations and what I could have said, what I could say to get back at him etc. my thoughts are more imaginative than analytic and they're mostly driven and triggered by emotions, but 4w5 are capable of overthinking a lot. It's just not that detached over-analyzing that 5s do, but self-absorbed moody brooding. but it's still overthinking. I'd agree that 5w6s and 6w5s overthink more (overthinking is basically their nature) but I don't think that 4w5 is a stupid vote altogether.

fg probably needs a girlfriend repeat after me: I lovingly welcome love into my life.

fg stands for French girl, never mind. I think he stated that he was hetereosexual am I correct?

I knew 5 would win this poll because of the lack of understanding of enneagram that there is going on. 6w5s take the biscuit for overthinking.
