    Default Which adjacent quadra do you socialise with more?

    Apart from your own quadra, which of your adjacent quadras do you prefer to hang out with?

    I find that I enjoy the company of Alphas more than Gammas. I'm IEI.

    I think it corresponds to the creative function actually, like a lot of things. Irrational Betas typically like Alphas more, rational Betas typically like Gammas more. I'm generally the same way.

    Works for me, I tend to socialize with and prefer deltas more than betas.

    Yeah, that's my theory - you hang out with the quadra that values your creative function/HA and hates your PoLR, and you like your semi-dual but hate their friends.

    Is that why you changed your type? Because you realised you hate Gammas?

    Hate is a strong word

    I like my semi-dual and apparently I like my comparative.

    I agree, I usually have more Alpha acquaintance, I make friends with them easier, but gamma tends to make me feel more comfortable and at ease.

    The evidence seems to support it so far -- I hang out mostly with Deltas.

    No kidding at all, I am more comfortable long term with Gamma in general than with Alpha, LIE my look-a-like, some unhealthy one can be such an ass but if the healthy one when I get close with them, I don't feel as if I have to watch what I say compare to ESE. No question asked how comfortable I would be if I compare ILI with SEI for me as I don't think I would want to be supervised and take the constant . ISFj although the relationship are straining as time goes, I feel more calm with them and I can relax easily with them, with LII, its a HIGH and then a low....(arguing can arise), With ENTp and ESFp it will depend on the person.

    Gamma irrationals, but slightly skewed because my brother is SEE. I'm IEI.

    EDIT: I'm pretty sure I'm sexual subtype on Enneagram, and wikisocion says Betas and Gammas get along better one-on-one while Betas and Alphas get along better in groups (social). Perhaps that has something to do with it?

    Deltas. I have at least three highly important Delta friendships: my sister (EII), friend/college roommate #1 (IEE), and friend/college roommate #2 (EII). I still have a number of Beta friends and relations, but I think that my closer ones tend to be Delta.

    Could this also be related to sub-type?

    I am EII-Fi, I socialize more with Gammas and have my whole life, with a couple of Alphas in the mix.

    I think it is, to some extent - my friend is also IEI, but quite far down the Ni end, and he seems to tolerate ILIs' social gaffes far better than I do (but I think a lot of my frustration with ILIs has more to do with my personal experiences than intertype relations alone). He also gets less annoyed at SEEs, but Alphas find him too odd to deal with for long periods.

    I find that conversations with Gammas always turn to what they're passionate about - their work, or their political beliefs - which is tiring for me to deal with in large doses, although I admire their focus.

    I agree with this completely. A few times when I've socialised with Gammas it ended with a heated debate I had no intention of starting.

    I find their jokes utterly hilarious sometimes, in a bitter, cynical way.

    IEI, and I probably have more Alpha friends than Gammas, although my Gamma friends are closer than the Alphas.
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    I mix between Alphas and Deltas, though I work with a whole bunch of Gamma, and every once in a while hang out with them.

    Alpha. I do have individual friendships w/ INTps (several) and ESFps. But for the most part I feel somewhat uncomfortable w/ ISFjs and ENTjs. Where as the whole Alpha quadra is more laid back somewhow (despite me not getting along well w/ ENTps in close distance, they're fun at a party). And of course I <3 ISFps And the rest.

    Probably Alphas>Betas>Deltas. While most of my friends are gamma, one of my best friends is ILE, maybe LII.

    it really depends. i like delta more if i'm getting drunk or high and being an asshole, which is pretty fun, but usually our sense of humor is limited to laughing at somethings expense (ISTps) and discussions get somewhat boring after a while. ENFp/ISTp is easier to talk to in that case. For beta, it's ESTp/INFp. Beta has more interesting discussions, can enjoy more petty fucked up things like wrecking the neighbors snowman or watching jerry springer, and can laugh at absurdity.. which can be entertaining

    both? i have 1 close EIE friend, 1 SLE. 2 IEE, 1 SLI.

    Though I'm definitely closest to the 2 IEEs and the EIE.

    EIE-Ni can be very interesting to chat with.
    And with IEEs, it's very relaxing yet fun. And I relate more to IEEs, we seem to understand each other more and i feel more comfortable being myself around them. With the EIE, it's more of debating about various topics, which is also interesting, though i know some EIEs that tire me.

    As a whole definitely Gamma. Especially on an often basis. I also get along really well with some Alpha NTs. Most Alpha SFs are too infectiously dramatic for me to deal with often and leave me wishing I knew more about the details of certain subjects as botany, which I could then use to bore them to death with (and not get charged with murder).
