I'm trying (unsuccessfully) to type some one and the things I'm sure about are: extroverted, sensor, merry and declaring. This leaves ESE or SLE.
Both types seem to not quite fit though.
He seems too nice and cuddly and such to be SLE. (Bad stereotype, perhaps?)
He seems generally to have beta > alpha values, and is unlike the ESEs I know. (Point two is not really a very good point, I know.)
I had him take an enneagram test and he tied between E2 & E7.
E2 points more to ESE.
E7 points more toward, well, either.
Personally, he seems more like a 6 to me.
Any advice on how to distinguish this gentleman's sociotype? Deciding factors between ESE & SLE?
