Healthy Sevens know less is more, are aware of the energy they channel into manufacturing happiness, have embraced the good and bad of human emotions and can accept life as it is rather than how they want it to be. They can face the pain and disappointment of life rather than avoiding it. They are fun and adventurous but also grounded, practical, and resilient. Read the full analysis here.
Influences on MBTI Types:
Editor’s Note: 7 is most often found in extroverted types, so if you are an Introvert who also thinks they are a 7, consider a sp 4 (the most 7-like) or a sx 9 or 9 in general (who are optimistic and want things pleasant and fun).
ENTP: comes across as more of an ENFP, but uses Fe to entertain people and avoid their own dark feelings (see: Robin Williams); has a truly crazy ability to random connections and a natural flair for humor, often over-indulges and chases after dreams and ideas, at the cost of inferior Si’s desire to ‘anchor’ self to a stabilizing lifestyle. Often careless with other people’s feelings in abandoning them for greener, more exciting pastures.
ENFP: your typical stereotype of an ENFP: a ball of aggressive sunshine that refuses to face reality, who starts and abandons a ton of projects, and runs away from anything hard and/or painful because they don’t want to deal with it; the Manic Pixie Dream girl who inspires everyone she meets. IE, Pollyanna.
ESTP: will mistype as a Ne-dom due to their scattered thought process and constant barrage of ideas; prone to thinking more about the future than other ESTPs (with great excitement and impatience). Uses Se/Fe + 7 to be hilarious and entertain others, but detached from their own feelings; may really have a hard time separating brutal reality (what Se sees) from what 7 does not want to deal with, causing frequent Ni-grips.
ESFP: may mistype as a Ne-dom due to their scattered thought process and constant barrage of ideas; prone to thinking more about the future than other ESFPs (with great excitement and impatience); detachment from other people’s pain and problems, and insensitive in trying to ‘cheer them up’ rather than just listen; habitual abandoner or anything and everything that loses their interest, with an adventurous, wandering spirit. Frequent inferior Ni issues (idealism) and conflict with Se-dom reality.
ISTP: more of an entertainer than other ISTPs, more adventurous and idealistic, and more in touch with how to cheer others up with their inferior Fe but also out of touch with their feelings. Often a globe-trotter who does not stick with people or negative situations long. May mistype as a Ne-using type due to 7’s similarities with Ne descriptions. Prone to Ti/Ni loops.
ESFJ: adventurous, brave, and always optimistic, these ESFJs are a ball of sunshine in the lives of everyone and cope with painful situations through humor and relentless optimism. They have a ton of Ne and a wanderer’s spirit, but high Si can help them settle as they get older into a more contented life. Due to Fe-dom not always being aware of their true feelings unless they talk about it with others, and 7’s reluctance to talk about negative emotions, may not understand how upset or scared they actually are. (I know an ESFJ-7 and she’s the most wonderful, courageous and optimistic person I have ever met.)
ENFJ: adventurous, brave, and optimistic, these ENFJs have an idealistic bent and like to reframe reality into whatever they would rather imagine it as; they are more prone to distraction and changing their minds, and less likely to see a vision through to the long term than other ENFJs, they often self-indulge through tert-Se, and do not always analyze their behaviors or seek to understand their own motivations (inferior Ti problems). Due to Fe-dom not always being aware of their true feelings unless they talk about it with others, and 7’s reluctance to talk about negative emotions, may not understand how upset or scared they actually are.
ENTJ: good-humored and positive about the future, often focused on bringing about a personal vision that will make the world a better place; prone to over-indulgences via tert-Se, which paired with 7 might also make them restless and inclined to abandon projects or other people who have a more ‘dour’ view of reality; will find ways to re-frame reality to make them feel good about themselves, neglecting inferior Fi in the process. Good at innovating but prone to frustration if their vision doesn’t turn out as they planned.
ESTJ: will pair 7 with tert-Ne humor and be a hilarious employer, coworker, or fellow student, less concerned with being ‘right’ than in avoiding their own negative feelings; will find ways to re-frame reality to make them always feel good about themselves, neglecting inferior Fi development in the process. Prone to crashing, HARD, into inferior Fi if something terrible happens; may take things in life for granted, and dream of the future constantly, but also good at making their dreams come true (Te-dom).
Less Likely (But Possible):
ISFP: prone to more idealism than other ISFPs, opportunistic, restless, commitment prone, a wanderer with erratic thought patterns, hates conflict and/or disappointments of any kind, prone to looping into Ni and creating idealized visions to escape reality or work toward.
INFP: opportunistic, funny, and always on the move, may come across as an extrovert and mistype as a Ne-dom due to their insatiable need for newness and constant forward motion; different from other INFPs in that they are less ‘serious’ and able to focus on the ‘dark things in life’; may live in a fantasy world rather than face reality.
INTP: seems more extroverted, may want to have a better handle on lower Fe, but also able to push away from it and refuse to deal with their negative feelings; less prone to inferior outbursts that plague the other Fe-inferior types; may be more impulsive than some INTPs in chasing after new things and abandoning projects, with less of a connection to Si.
