    All different types, Autistic people have their own personalities just like you do and there's the same variety. Disliking change is one feature of the condition but your setbacks do not determine your actual personality. They may get distressed by change but it doesn't mean keeping things simple is something they hold dear to them, often it's just something they can't help, so an Autistic person (high-functioning) is not more likely to be a Si user than anyone else. Loads of Aspie males tend to go all Ti-crazy in their teen years though, so I can't comment on that

    5w6 here. My INFP mom asked me if I was autistic one time. It was random as hell. I told her no. Based on what I'm reading on here, I would still say no. Yet, I might have something that is 'somewhat' close to it. Who knows.

    lets just type autism as INFP. After all the stereotype is that autism is only females right?

    Also INTPs are quite misunderstood it seems, their surpressed Fe make them unaware of their emotions, and they have an abstract thinking which autistic people lack, they see things black and white, only what's put in front of them. Instead of being innovative like INTPs they copy other people and quote them instead of being original, they also don't understand sarcasm, ISTJs and INTPs are known for being the most sarcastic personalities, and for the people that voted for INTJ, there are people out there without a normal functioning brain that could do much better, you obviously have no clue of how these personalities work.

      Pretty sure the INTP comment was meant as a joke, but in general I agree autistic people are generally not Intuitives.

    Autism is lacking of cognitive functions, although the closest one to being autistic or having autism are ISTPs (not all of course). ISTJs may act like they are autistic when they're young but once they mature so does their Fi, they'll have more developed functions.

      I never said (young) ISTJs act autistic, I said autistic people are in my opinion most likely to be ISTJ.

    My guess would be ISTJ. People who are autistic are obviously introverted and lack social skills, therefore I. They are quite practical, and find it hard to imagine unreal things or occurrences, therefore S. They are logically minded, find It hard to relate to others, and have a lack of understanding of others emotions, therefore T. Finally, they are obsessed with their routine, strongly dislike change, and have a fixation on random memorization and the past, therefore J. The last bit can also be interpreted as Si if we are to bring functions into account, further backing the argument.

    Low functioning Autism behavior (temper tantrums, flapping, stacking cans etc.): enneagram 9w1 (definitely a body type)

    obsess over one subject: enneagram 6w5

    Lack of Te or overuse of Te? Tough question.

    Te auxillary or Ne auxillary? What would help an autistic person?

    Low functioning autism:
    Honestly stacking cans, memorizing phone books and license plate numbers, is just poor Te not poor Ne. Te would help in organizing the information in a complicated world.

    Perhaps using superstitions, bible verses, known phobias, etc would help the autistic diverge the repressed anxieties and bring it to life.

    Since autism is a surivial based mentality kinda like what you see in homeless people, etc.

    So is it Te-dominant, Te aux, Te teritary, Te repressed, Te opposing personality, Te critical parent, Te trickster, or Te devil?

    I think Te opposing personality. INTP for autism.

    When I'm at home all the time I act like an INTP (autism) which is just lack of Fe and using Ti in the wrong places and lack of knowledge about people, lack of urban dictionary vocabulary, and not paying attention to body language (lack of Fe)

    But if I'm safe or successful I act like an ENTJ

    I think 9w1, because they are withdrawn and they aren't really in control as the 9w8. I don't think 5 because they certainly are not

    "They are usually self-sufficient and have minimal needs."
    http://enneagramtexas.com/typefive.htm

    They are not six because
    "They say they do everything to avoid dependency in a world that cannot be trusted."
    Yet autism is the most extreme form of dependent personality disorder

    "When discomfort is present, SIXES automatically use the defense mechanism of projection in which they put their worst fears onto others."
    I doubt it, autistic people can be sixes but I don't think autistic people have the verbal intelligence to try to do this.
    http://enneagramtexas.com/typesix.htm

    They're more of a narcotic

    "When discomfort occurs or conflict is possible, NINES automatically call on the mechanism of narcotization, numbing out through secondary comforts such as food, drink or repetitive, comforting activities or thoughts. Ironically, seeking comfort and harmony by neglecting oneself leads, ultimately, to more discomfort and disharmony."

    Autism is just a disorder whom the kid has a hard time "lying" with not enough proper "vocabulary" particularly now from urban dictionary

      Yes, that is how they diagnose autism. They ask you to define ten random terms from urbandictionary.com and if you don't get all of them right you're an autistic fuck.

    ISTJ father, ESFJ mother
    ISTJ Si-Fi loop, problematic because Te doesn't help organize the information that could help the autistic child
    ESFJ Fe-Ne loop problematic because Si doesn't organize things enough in life

    Autistic child if INTP, Ti-Si loop could be fixed by Ne or by improving Fe. Lack of Fe really hurts in social interactions
    Autistic child if INTJ, Ni-Fi loop could be fixed by Te or by improving Se, lack of Se is problematic since child is "spacing out" too often in school or not noticing things other kids notice. Lack of Te could mean lack of assertiveness which is needed to reduce being bullied

      josephty1

       
      Tip for ISTJ father: start organizing things in life, categorizing everything, even if it may be "racist" "sexist" or whatever
      Tip for ESFJ mother, start taking notes, reading books, being more organized with the Si-function, and yes being in charge of cooking, managing behavior is HARD. Or you can take a history class in a local college. Kinda ironic, but European History is a really nice gem in study of human behavior. Plus you can learn nutritional tips lol.

      What tips for the autist... I'll try to guess
      Tip for INTP autist: Be more creative, in the realm of time and space. Robotics class could be very helpful.
      Tip for INTJ autist: Same with the ISTJ, start organizing things in life, categorizing everything. Improving Se by watching the news, reading magazines, etc.

    If Autism is really a mind-type (5-6-7), shouldn't mind types be very socially adept? Most 5s actually aren't the social loner stereotypes people think they are

    6s fear propels them to socialize more.

      josephty1

       
      Poeple with Aspeger's / high functioning autism may be more likely to be a mind type (5-6-7). Though to distinguish Aspergers as "gifted or obessed in 1 or 2 skills" and high functioning autism as the abscene of that gift/obsession of 1 to 2 skills, Aspergers is 5w6/6w5 and high (or low) functioning autism is probably more likely to be a body type (8-9-1)

      Not all people with autism are loners either, or even have social anxiety, i've met a few who are really talkative and expressive.

      Exactly, the extraverted autistics probably just believed their parents beliefs and because they belived themselves as autistic well they "acted" autisitic, like self fulfilling prophecy

    • Posted on: 2017-10-27 07:38:46

      josephty1

       
      Extraverted means living life externally in my opinion, others interpret it as "energized by social interaction". Not wrong but anyone is energized if with the right people, out of the 6 billion people, there are the right people somewhere. Others just label people who are social as extraverts and shy people as introverts which is incorrect

    Enneagram 9w8 fits autism pretty well. Desiring inner peace (which autists get through repetition) and then lashing out without it (8 wing). Not sure if it fits better than 5w6 or 6w5 though.

    • Posted on: 2017-10-10 09:48:23

      testingmbtibase

       
      Low functioning autism = 9w8 ISTP/ISTJ. High functioning autism/Asperger's = 5w6 ISTP/INTP. Both share ISTP in common.

    • Posted on: 2017-10-11 07:26:16

      josephty1

       
      INTJs probably just as likely. ISTJ? Probably high functioning autism but not low-functioning, since ISTJs would blend in while the low-functioning autistic sticks out like a sore thumb, and also since ISTJs and ESTJs are the most common male types.

      But since many people are diagnosed early in life (2-3 years, if not earlier) and perhaps the autism-like symptoms may have arrived after a period of intense stress, the diagnosis window, extremely short period of time, happened.

      Plus the vast majority of the Internet, if you look up Autism MBTI or Autism INTJ, says INTJs are most likely to be autistic compared to other types.

      testingmbtibase

       
      Low agreeableness, low openness, low conscientiousness, low extraversion - the rigidity is more in the low agreeableness and openness which is what you'd expect from STJ, but low conscientiousness is P. So it's IST with some J and some P things.

      Depends. High functioning autists tend to be intuitives.

      testingmbtibase

       
      Not really, just a small subset that is omnipresent on the Internet. There was some Japanese study of those diagnosed with Asperger's and they were not low or high openness, just insignificantly in the middle. And openness is the best proxy for N. Meanwhile regular autism was low openness.

    Interesting, What are autistic people afraid of? Being without support/guidance?

    • Posted on: 2017-10-02 09:52:40

      Mr Maul

       
      I think 5 & 6 fit autism perfectly. They're afraid of being incompetent or having no support due to thinking differently than most people. Autism would also lead to fears due to not connecting with people as well.

    • Posted on: 2017-10-10 08:25:48

      josephty1

       
      There may be two or more subsets of Autism. One subset may be closer to 5, another subset may be closer to a 6, and another may be different types.

      Theres like several different types of schizophrenia, for example, but the only subsets of autism is Asperger, High Functioning, and Low Functioning. Asperger may be closer to a 5 in my opinion. I think Low Functioning Autism is closer to a 6. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    • Posted on: 2017-10-10 09:40:43

      testingmbtibase

       
      I've come to the conclusion that 6 is too social (mainly due to being reliant on social structures) to be a great fit for autism, because that is at its core. So it's between 5w6 and 9w8.

      Low Functioning Autism would be way closer to 9w8 and perhaps Asperger's/HFA to 5w6. But usually autism is used to refer to the non-Asperger's variety so 9w8 is better.

    • Posted on: 2017-10-10 18:42:00

      josephty1

       
      9w8 does kinda make sense, after all, autistic people do have some "power" in the family, evident by the temper tantrums, the ability to get disability accommodations, etc. Autism is more common among nuclear families than single family households, as Riso and Hudson says 9's are connected to both parental figures (not absolute, since 9's can come from single family households).

      What people don't understand is that autistic people want to avoid verbal conflict, think about it. 9's want to avoid conflict, so this makes sense. I suppose because the 3-6-9 enneagram triangle that autism could be misidentified as 6, but severely autistic people are neither warm nor cowardly, in my experience. Lazy, yes.
