I wrote a new blog about Personality Typology and Hosting -- how your personality type effects your work as an Airbnb host, and your relationship to guests and their needs. So far I only covered the Enneagram. Eventually want to write about Myers Briggs system too.
Thank you for this. Your article makes it very easy to understand the different aspects of the categories, which normally I can have a tough time with. Maybe partly because i like your writing and find that I don't struggle with attentiveness with it. I am familiar with meyers briggs and inneagram systems but have recently been reading about what an author calls The Four Tendencies, which may be loosely based on both, and even if falling into the category of new-agey or pop psych, has also been insightful and helpful if looked at with a broad view for specific purposes. I will be reading more of your article gradually, to take in the most that I can. Thanks!

Thanks Grace, it's nice to get some positive feedback! I spent a lot of time writing that and had a lot of fun with it and really hope others will enjoy it too and be inspired maybe to look into these things and see if it interests them, and draw some of their own conclusions.
I posted this same blog in another group and, oddly, someone came to the post to troll on it. I dont' know why, when all I'm offering is information, that someone could take or leave as they see fit, someone would have to get negative. He posted one of those dorky "Adam Ruins Everything" videos, suggesting he thinks Myers-Briggs is all bunk, as is Jungian Psychology. Yes, folks, Adam Ruins Everything knows more than Freud, Jung, Socrates, Plato...really anyone. Adam has something snarky to say about them...so...he must be right! I worry about people's elementary critical thinking skills. Or their susceptibility to even the dumbest of fake news.
I have not heard of the Four Tendencies before -- I just looked it up online. It's interesting -- I'll have to ponder it and see if it might relate to these other personality typology systems.

Is the Four Tendencies you're interested in the one by Rubin? I looked at that and the test for it, and I don't find it too useful or applicable to myself. Maybe it doesn't fit me too well. I went through her questions on the test, and for all of the mutliple choice questions, I would not be able to answer them satisfactorily, because none of the 4 choices given, were appropriate to me for my best answer. I was able to indicate that I agreed or disagreed with the statements at the end. I didn't feel too excited about those though. I didn't like that she asked for our age, whether we have children, and our income, in order to provide our "type." Those questions feel too intrusive and I'd not be willing to give my age or income, or whether I have children.
I thought there was another personality type system that had four of something in it...maybe it wasn't a personality type system but a spiritual system that I am thinking of...
