Since some people type based on the iris of the eye I decided to check further into it. I enlisted the help of an IEI family member and a magnifying glass in order to determine the pattern of my iris since it does not show clearly in any of the pictures I took. My eye is a primary jewel but secondary shaker which gives me a shaker-jewel pattern. It was actually kind of fun to do but ultimately on the same level with blood type personalities as far as being accurate. I would say at least half of the traits of shaker and jewel could apply to me. Maybe a little more. I will ask my eye doctor when I go in for a follow up. I just happen to have an allergy so it is perfect timing as far as getting a professional opinion on my iris pattern. I could also relate to parts of the stream-flower which I thought was my pattern just based on pics. It was helpful to have someone else to look since I took my contacts out to avoid distortion. Plus it is really hard to look into my own eyes in a mirror without contacts
So yeah it is pretty interesting idea but does it correlate with enneagram and socionics? You be the judge of your own eyes.
UPDATE: My eyes are stream-jewel
