    But does it really matter? anyone will be badass at some point in their lives.

      Does typology really matter?

    • Posted on: 2017-12-19 00:00:25



      True but there is a huge difference between someone who is badass once in a full moon, and someone who can walk down the isle in a supermarket with a broken squeaky shopping cart and still pull off the bear fighting badass aura.

      Well I don't know about you but I'd fight a bear for the last bottle of chocolate milk, squeaky cart or not (probably not, I usually just grab a hand-basket).

      Ok, you have life experience, I respect you.

    ISTP > ESTP > ExTJ > INTJ=ESFP, all those are badass in that order.

    • Posted on: 2017-12-11 18:00:03



      This is the correct answer.

  • Posted on: 2017-11-08 12:25:28


    How is 5w4 badass ?

    You guys got bullied, you have no right to call yourselves badass.
    I'm type 5 and I know I'm not a badass, yet I probably have more testosterone than you.

    Badass stereotype is *STP, usually the gloomy, mysterious ISTP.

    What people think is more badass about 8w9 than any other type is their "Hidden strength", 8w7 is louder and more predictable, which seems less "badass"

    • Posted on: 2017-11-05 13:45:23


      8w9s are just like 8w7s that are more timid and don't do as much stuff to have fun. 9 is the least stereotypically "badass" enneagram number of all.

    • Posted on: 2017-11-05 14:00:53


      I know, scotty, this is obvious stuff, I was just making an argument for 8w9

  • Posted on: 2017-11-05 01:51:26


    5W4 can be badass beacause of schizoid behaviour, especially Sx/Sp.

    • Posted on: 2017-11-05 13:35:11


      For example: critical speaking of 5w4 + literal INTJ = Badass.

    • Posted on: 2017-11-05 13:40:41



    • Posted on: 2017-11-05 14:12:46


      Not sure if you even know what schizoid PD entails?

    • Posted on: 2017-11-08 12:23:58


      Kys my boi

    • Posted on: 2017-12-29 02:37:39



      "No"? "Serious"? I saw that going differently in my schizoid mind.

  • Posted on: 2017-11-05 01:25:55


    Enfp, because having to inspire all you dour asses does take its toll.

  • Posted on: 2017-10-14 15:04:10


    "badass" is a term that should be interpreted subjectively and you guys are acting like there was one accurate definition for it. This is not a scientific topic.

  • Posted on: 2017-10-14 15:02:00


    No votes for 3w4? 8w7s in general are more badass 8w9 are more passive by their w9 but the truth is... 5w6 are the most badass type specially ISTXs and some INTJs.

    • Posted on: 2017-10-14 15:04:59


      I don't consider 1w9s for the same reason of 8w9s.

    • Posted on: 2017-11-05 01:01:58


      ExTJs and ESTPs can be very badass too.

  • Posted on: 2017-10-14 09:13:29


    I hate entries like this but it got bumped up again so why no 1 votes? A certain part of many "badass" archetypes is being unflinching in a way and not losing one's cool in a way that 1's are especially known for, compared to the more reactive 8's.

    And I'm not really sure what 5w4 is doing with votes at all - sure there are some iconoclastic 5w4's who won't back down from challenging ideas intellectually, which I guess can be "badass" in an abstract sense, but externally they are the "geekier" people of culture in a way that goes against the base impression most people associate with badassery. And even so, some of these "badass 5w4s" that are committed to their cause can actually be Ones.

    Now ignoring the 5w4 votes which I really just consider to be one big mistake, we have 8w9 with a lot of votes and 7w8 with some votes. Why does 9 have no votes? Probably because of what 9 represents. As described by the Enneagram Institute (leading authority on Enneagram):

    Key Motivations: Want to create harmony in their environment, to avoid conflicts and tension, to preserve things as they are, to resist whatever would upset or disturb them.

    These can all be good things, however.. they are not badass in the least sense. They are actually anti-badass.

    And there are many qualities of Seven that can be seen as quite badass, and that is probably why 7w8 has 6 votes.

    So why then, is the 8 with a NINE wing more badass than 8 with a SEVEN wing? I know that in a lot of Enneagram theory, the whole is different than the sum of the parts, but I still can't imagine the whole of 8w9 beating out the whole of 8w7, when you compare people of both types and see who is more stereotypically "badass"

    In fact 8w7 has 1/32 votes as I type this, while 8w9 has 14/32. What gives?

    • Posted on: 2017-10-14 13:53:16


      For the bump it's me, I used this page as a bookmark for access to this site.

    • Posted on: 2017-10-14 14:57:27


      Yes 8w7 are more badass than 8w9 and 3w4 are badass too.

    • Posted on: 2017-10-14 14:58:23



    • Posted on: 2017-11-05 14:11:30


      My theory about the 8w9 is that it was chosen because it's more compatible with ISTP/INTJ than 8w7.

  • Posted on: 2017-09-22 02:55:23


    STs in general are more often stereotypically "badass"

  • Posted on: 2017-09-21 22:17:18


    I'm surprised there are no ISTJ votes. They're often cool, calm, level-headed and committed to their causes. And like Johncena said, they make up more of the army than any other type, and aside from spies/other obscure jobs, the only real badasses in the modern world are soldiers. I don't know if I would consider them the most badass (I can definitely see the point for ISTPs) but I think they deserve to be up there by INTJs.

    • Posted on: 2017-09-22 02:41:27


      ISTJ also make majority in US marines.

  • Posted on: 2017-09-21 21:17:05


    People give ISTP way more credit than they should in reality. Anything ISTP can do so can INTP. In fact INTP outnumber ISTP in the military So the silent 'bad ass' can be INTP more than ISTP. This is the only study done on the subject. A lot of MMA/boxers mma fighters are not even XSTP also. We do not know their real personalities in fact Frank mir (MMA fighter), Chris Eubank admitted they need to act a 'character' and its not there real personalities. A lot of them are not even XSTP. Here is Chris Eubank who acted like ESTP but in real life he is ENFJ or INFJ.

    • Posted on: 2017-09-21 21:34:57


      Sorry take out the dot at the end.

    • Posted on: 2017-09-21 21:39:42


      Its cuz if someone acts really aggressive they usually get ESTP vote for some reason. Fighters often have to act this way and XSTP votes are flooded eventhough we dont many of there real personalities. Chris eubank would have a flood of ESTP votes just from his acting in press conference etc.

    • Posted on: 2017-09-21 22:00:19


      Its page 62 @PikUpYourPantsPatrol My mistake INTP and ISTP have the same amount but still both have high numbers compared to a lot of types and there is a lot less INTP than ISTP. This is a study done to marines as well. Marines are seen as 'bad ass'. ISTJ has the highest.

    • Posted on: 2017-12-11 17:59:11



      Anything ISTPs can do INTPs can also do.  Cool hypothesis, we might even find out if its true or not if an INTP ever attempts to do anything at all.

      Also you're not really John Cena.

  • Posted on: 2017-09-21 00:55:51


    Severe case of ISTP syndrome here. The stereotypes of ISTP are like action hero James bond types. Almost like the INXJ 'psychic powers" stereotype. Official definition of 'bad ass' "a tough, uncompromising, or intimidating person." See any type can be like that what about ENTJ? INTP? ISTJ? ESTJ? Not cool enough to be a SP? or special to be INXJ?

    • Posted on: 2017-09-21 01:14:49


      Its all guessing,thinking and experience. The definition of 'badass' also varies and there is no official studies. Not a accurate thread.

      You could say that about literally any entry here lol

    Hey aren't ESTPs the ones with the little daredevils on their 16p pages? Must be ESTP then.

    I love the cool and quiet istp 8 archetype its rlly cute

  • Posted on: 2017-09-12 11:24:04


    It's not about the type it's the person, even an ISFJ might be able to be badass in some sort of strange context or situation where lots of information is withheld from the impressed onlookers.

    • Posted on: 2017-09-12 11:33:22


      Yeah you're right. Any type can be badass. But most people probably voted it for fun and just based it on theoretical functions.

    • Posted on: 2017-09-12 11:46:49


      I was trying to be funny, but yeah, you know, of course I'm right.
