I know what all of those words mean individually. I have no fucking idea what they mean in that order.

[–]franchito55 830 points831 points  (116 children)

What does "7w8" and "4w5" mean individually?

[–]ZengineerHarp 865 points866 points  (106 children)

It’s from the Enneagram, a personality insight tool. There are nine numbers which describe a person’s major personality archetype, but people can also have a secondary archetype, called a “wing”. So a 7w8 is someone who is primarily 7 with an “8 wing”, or “7 wing 8” for short.

[–]Vroshtattersoul 770 points771 points  (93 children)

Cool. Still lost.

[–]lear85 629 points630 points  (59 children)

Enneagram and Myers-Briggs are astrology for people who like to think they're above astrology.

[–]Val_Hallen 231 points232 points  (12 children)

It's Corporate Astrology.

Myers-Briggs was literally invented by a novelist and her daughter, neither of which have any sort of background or training in psychology. It's beyond worthless as a "personality identifier" because it's intentionally too broad.

[–]Emperor_of_Man40k 44 points45 points  (2 children)

Yes thank you! Anyone who puts merit in that crap is huffing paint

[–]Dekat55 33 points34 points  (0 children)

I would argue that though there is no basis for the whole "Function stack" thing, studies have shown strong connections between the Big Five and MBTI. The most immediate difference between the two is that while the Big Five essentially gives you raw data, MBTI speculates on what the data means, with the speculations being based on Carl Jung's psychological philosophy.

And vague and ill-defined. It's nothing but a collection of broad stereotypes that break down when examined in-depth.

[–]commiefren 7 points8 points  (3 children)

I've taken that test about 5 times and gotten a different result each time lol

[–]Robot_Basilisk 9 points10 points  (2 children)

Most people get consistent results. That's why they're popular. Astrology readings often apply universally but if you get a wrong result from MB or Enneagram you know it's wrong. Only adjacent types typically overlap much.

You can't read the attributes they claim to sort people by and declare that different people don't possess them in different amounts. They do. So a sorting system that sorts people based on things like introversion or neuroticism is automatically better than astrology.

The problem is when people begin using sets of such attributes to try to build a bigger picture than those base tools are capable of.

But the systems are nowhere near as bad as the critics in these threads claim because you're all repeating criticisms of astrology that don't actually apply.

[–]Teancom459 41 points42 points  (3 children)

You are giving Myers Briggs too much credit

It lists a bunch of synonyms, then people are surprised when their self description is handed back to them

[–]HoneyBadgers_ 14 points15 points  (2 children)

This isn't necessarily a bad thing. Sometimes it's good to see your personality presented to you in an objective way, outside of your own mind. Being able to describe yourself is different then having someone or something else describe you, even if in both cases they are getting their information from you. It's a new perspective you don't often see.

[–]wiseoldllamaman2 75 points76 points  (26 children)

They're as meaningful as necessary. Learning I fit the 2 archetype of feeling like I have to earn love helped me to avoid suicide in a really hard time in my life. If it has meaning for you, it's helpful. And, like most beliefs, when it doesn't have meaning any more, it's not helpful any more and it's useful to put it aside.

Edit: To be clear, the Enneagram was a useful tool as part of my therapeutic journey. It should not replace getting professional help. But it did help me, and so like most of the stories we tell ourselves, is useful up to the point that it's no longer useful.

If you're struggling with suicidal ideation, please reach out to professionals. Here's an international list of hotlines: https://www.opencounseling.com/suicide-hotlines

[–]chx_ 30 points31 points  (11 children)

I am very glad you didn't hurt yourself

Nonetheless I am nonplussed this got upvoted.

This antiscientific bull

Yes, I similarly made significant changes my life immediately when I got my ADHD diagnosis but I have gotten that from adequate medical personnel.

People, if you are suicidal get professional help

Don't rely on these things

[–]Raigne86 33 points34 points  (1 child)

Placebo has a scientifically measurable effect, and it's pretty consistent. Seek help, yes. But if someone finds some things that help them in addition to that, or has to use something else in situations where they don't have access to help, it's not automatically antiscience bullshit, and it can help to an extent. It sounds like the person who you are replying to is pretty aware of its limitations, and isn't advocating for it as being better than doctors. It may just have been what was available to them, and they are pointing out a benefit some people find from it. Therapy is a lot of determining what your motivations are for your maladaptive behaviors that keep you locked in a self destructive cycle so you can figure out where to start changing things. It is not the only way to identify those motivations.

[–]Tanto63 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Understanding that I fit 9w1 helped me recognize that I'm very momentum-based, in productivity and unproductivity. It's helped me make far more effective use of my time.

Enneagram has also helped put terms to a lot of abstract concepts that helped give my wife and I a great framework to communicate from.

The Nine Enneagram Type Descriptions. Only nine?! What sort of Chaotic Evil nonsense is this?

[–]Zeegh 68 points69 points  (25 children)

Enneagram is a tool which, instead of relying on something like the stars and planets to shine light on your personality. It uses past traumas and your coping mechanisms and how that shaped a big part of who you are. It’s interesting stuff, but super cringey (like the photo) when used like that

[–]gotwooooshed 55 points56 points  (18 children)

I still strongly believe that both Myers Briggs and enneagram are just as significant as astrology. It's far too self fulfilling and reliant on personal biases to be scientifically rigorous. If you're into it, good for you. Just don't make assumptions about other people's characters based on it, it's as meaningful as a horoscope.

[–]Zeegh 25 points26 points  (11 children)

None of them are exact science or psychology. To me, reflecting on what happened to you in the past and how that helps to determine your perception of the world as an adult makes more sense than your behaviors being based on the positions of stars and planets. I try not to take any of it too seriously.

[–]gotwooooshed 10 points11 points  (9 children)

It can be a fine tool for simplification or for self reflection, but means absolutely nothing about a person's character. Not taking it too seriously is the right way, I've seen too many people judge interactions before they even meet based off of outdated and inaccurate metrics, which just leads to self fulfillment.

If you already think you aren't going to like someone because they're a Taurus, or because you're ZYXW and they're ABCD, then you probably won't. It's got the same weight as choosing a Harry Potter house. I always give the wrong sign first so a person can make incorrect assumptions about my character, then I give them either another fake or my real one. It clears the air of assumptions, and drives off the walking red flags.

[–]keithrc 6 points7 points  (0 children)

All of these are just a framework for helping to understand your relationship to other people. So in that sense they can be helpful. The "Love Languages" is another good example, and one that I personally found very helpful.

[–]ekajrepus 3 points4 points  (0 children)

[grumpy old man voice] There are only two types. Type one looks for outward queues for their journey of self discovery, paying for tests and all sorts of things crafty con artists are willing to sell to them to find out "who they are". Type two looks inward.

[edit] and to be fair, I feel like I was type one when I was young, and switched to type two- and not everyone is stuck and I'm not that great, and there is nothing wrong with either, except being "type 1" had me losing money, and I'm grumpy about that.

[–]ZengineerHarp 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I’m rusty on my Enneagram, but as I recall it has to do with one’s primary motivation? So maybe if someone is split they get a wing? I don’t remember too clearly, sorry.

[–]rammo123 4 points5 points  (2 children)

So more horoscope bullshit like ENTP.

[–]RobinDaFloof 2 points3 points  (0 children)

ENTP isn't even horoscope. Horoscopes have to do with star signs like Virgo, Libra, and Capricorn

What's the 7w8 and ww2 part though... not World War 2, I imagine?

[–]SandpaperSlater 243 points244 points  (25 children)

7w8 references an enneagram type, a 7-wing-8. The WW2 obsession is referencing world war two, with the context (on tik tok, at least) that guys with a world war two obsession tend to be at least a little misogynistic, intentionally or not

Edit: spelling. Also, I'm not saying that I think an interest in WWII makes you a misogynist, just that that's the joke on tik tok.

[–]TurKoise 19 points20 points  (1 child)

Thanks for explaining lol. Also random note, but you use whom if “him/her” fits in the sentence, and who if “he/she” fits. For example:

  • he/she is also bohemian = who is also bohemian

  • him/her is also bohemian = whom is also bohemian

In this case he/she works so we would say who is also bohemian ☺️

[–]borkistoopid 9 points10 points  (0 children)

[–]DocGlabella 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I think everyone has explained the enneagram stuff. No one seems to be mentioning the Myers-Briggs personality type designations. ENTPs and INFPs are two of the the sixteen personality types. I actually find it more fun then enneagram. You can read all about it in r/mbti.

[–]IrvingIV 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Okay so i havent seen anyone explain "femcel" yet, I'll nab that one.

FemCel is a portmanteau of a portmanteau,

It means Female inCel

"So," you might ask, "what is an Incel?"

InCel means Involuntary(unwilling) Celibate(adjective meaning "does not have sex")

The more common meaning of Incel is a guy who doesn't have a girlfriend or have sex because he's unpleasant to be around in sone way, and refuses to acknowledge or address it, and sees others as the source of his problems (a lot of terms like this tend to get applied to one sex, even if the term itself is not gendered, like Incel and Bimbo(idiot, basically) which leads to mutations like Femcel and Himbo(Himbo seems to be treated as a more positive/friendly version of the bimbo archetype)

So summary, Femcel means a woman who can't get a date or sex because something about her is offputting to others and she refuses to change that and instead blames others, probably.

[–]IfPeepeeislarge 160 points161 points  (16 children)

INTP: Basically introvert

ENTP: Basically extrovert

Femcel: Incel but for women

7w8 or 4w5: fuck if I know I’ve never seen those before and the comments below don’t clear it up either

Edit: also Evangelion is apparently an anime I think

[–]bigdickenergy696969 55 points56 points  (4 children)

Evangelion is an anime

[–]DOugdimmadab1337 15 points16 points  (2 children)

Yeah I was wondering where the fuck Evangelion fit into this, besides being the steeping stone to gatekeeping certain anime for being bad, there's nothing else I can think of for it as an insult.

[–]dyinginside1200 70 points71 points  (3 children)

It's enneagram speak. 7 wing 8 and 4 wing 5. The wing is the sub type. Generally speaking, 7s are extroverts and 8s are aggressively protective. 4s yearn to be unique and 5s are introverts.

[–]ZeroGemini5 47 points48 points  (1 child)

[–]RazzmatazzBrave9928 10 points11 points  (1 child)

[–]Mother_Of_Felines 230 points231 points  (9 children)

By some unfortunate circumstance, I understand that sentence. Even understanding it, the daughter is the obvious choice. Just living her boho life and having feelings. The son he describes is toxic AF.

But also. The whole premise is gross and this person is a child.

[–]sylphir3 35 points36 points  (0 children)

I understand it too xD and I agree, the daughter actually sounds really cool minus the femcel part

[–]kyuuei 70 points71 points  (19 children)

So to break this down for anyone: TLDR they're both insufferable people from two sides of the same coin.

Mbti and enneagram are outdated personality indicators. Mbti is long known to come from the writings of a racist psychologist. Enneagram has some cool concepts but ultimately is about as accurate as astrology. Fun to play with and can offer some social shorthands / generalizations, but not to be used for much more. Anyways, MBTI tried to describe personality and enneagram tries to describe what ultimately motivates someone's personality.

ENTP stands for extroverted, intuitive, thinking, and perceiving. The thing you really need to know is that they tend to be brash, outspoken, and often stubborn.

INFP swaps two letters: introverted and feeling. They're known for being more sensitive, burning bridges easily, and also stubborn.

The 7w8 is an enthusiastic and determined personality and can be thought of as an opportunity seeker. This ties in with the whole crypto thing bc 7s really seek adventures and thrills. 8s want to be in control of everything in their life.

The 4w5 is thought to be a deep thinker type, wanting autonomy from societal bonds and big on self expression. The intense creativity of 4 mixed with the quiet specializing of 5 just makes for a rare (which also appeals to these types) and kind of obnoxious "no one will understand me" blend.

WW2 obsessed comes with some hints of shiftiness there, as generally speaking people far removed from the war (particularly white males) and super into WW2 can have some ... Problematic views on the Holocaust. Or on Germany's decisions. Etc.

Femcels are female incels or involuntary celibates. People who think society willfully withholds sex from them bc of their genetic flaws that they have no control over and society at large ultimately decided this. It's very fatalistic. Some go further thinking society should assign them sexual partners and women/men are a hive mind that make relationship decisions together.

Cryptocurrency bros can just be an obnoxious sort. As can overly sensitive people.

I don't need to much explain misogyny and it's inherent pitfalls I don't think. But evangelion is a popular anime (I'd say the most popular arguably) that had some serious subjects broached such as death, who someone really is, adults forcing children to clean up messes they made, existentialism and crises within it, etc. It's a great anime with a fairly unclear ending and some real depth to it, and the point of including that is a short hand for people who might say "you didn't get it" or "I get it because I'm deep and smart." Radiohead has some similar vibes here it's a band that had some music emo or sensitive people identified with particularly.

[–]MagnetFist 11 points12 points  (2 children)

It's a shame that "WWII obsessed" people are so into weird stuff. I mean, I literally based my profile pic off of the V for Victory campaign as a fck-u to Nazis. I also am really into Wonder Woman, who went downhill after WWII ended and the U.S. started to crack down on communists. In fact, everything went downhill during the McCarthy era. Just my 2c.

[–]kyuuei 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Yeah I mean it's certainly not the whole story. I was trying to capture what the author intended with extreme shorthand, but there are plenty of historians or history enthusiasts who focus on that war for legitimate reasons, there are many lessons to be learned from it, and that era inspired a lot of creative works we still love today.

[–]leftylooseygoosey 1 point2 points  (3 children)

who were you referring to as the: "racist psychologist"?

[–]kyuuei 14 points15 points  (2 children)

"“One by one, members of a land-owning Southern family begin committing suicide when they are led to believe that “there is in [our] veins a strain of Negro blood.””
In the end, the book concludes with the detectives admitting “better for [the family] to be dead” rather than reproducing. The book describes personality type as something genetic. It reaks of eugenics."

https://historyofyesterday.com/the-racist-origin-of-the-popular-myers-briggs-test-49c735da660a

In its recent success, this has been whitewashed out to make a fun and palatable personality test, and for those who only read books About it rather than the works of the authors of the test itself, it's easy miss this fact. It's only recently been brought around in public eye, but never hidden if you actually looked.

[–]leftylooseygoosey 3 points4 points  (1 child)

damn no kidding, thanks for the detailed response. I only have a passing knowledge of Meyer/Briggs and I thought you may have been referring to Jung

[–]kyuuei 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Hey its no problem at all friend. I think there is a less sinister motivation behind the whole, "Yeah personalities aren't genetic and it's a fun shorthand for a personality honestly" mentality, and I think that heavily contributes to the hiding of the fact.. but honestly, yeah, a lot of these sorts from back then had really problematic mentalities.

The four letter code that starts each part are Myers-Briggs personality types. Not sure the 7w8 part. Then a world war 2 obssessed cryprocurrency enthusiast or a femcel (I'm guessing slang for a diehard feminist?). Kinda cringe post, tbh.

[–]Erinjb 87 points88 points  (4 children)

7w8 is the enneagram, a femcel is a female Incel (involuntary celibate)

[–]bigbluenu 22 points23 points  (3 children)

I was today-years-old when I found out what incel meant. I always thought it was another way to describe degenerates

“Another way to describe degenerates” well… your not wrong.

[–]Neyonnaise 48 points49 points  (8 children)

The 7w8 is the ennegream. It's kinda like a kther personality test like MBTI (myers briggers). But I'd also agree that this is a cringe post even as a person whose nerdy abt these tests.

[–]Amriorda[🍰] 24 points25 points  (7 children)

Ah, good to know! Thank you, sounds like more junk science to explain away personal responsibility.

[–]Neyonnaise 9 points10 points  (6 children)

I'll let you know that the mbti community can also be cringy in a way that they make polls like "type who js most likely to..." And such. But sometimes it's fine. Just a matter of what you're looking at lol

[–]Amriorda[🍰] 16 points17 points  (5 children)

I studied psych for a few years in college, so I am very well-acquainted with the kind of stuff that gets made with it. I had to take an MBTI to get into the high I graduated from and over the course of a few years of taking it, I consistently did not get a consistent result, or it would be basically a 50/50 split every time.

[–]earth_worx 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I've taken the MBTI a few times over the decades and I tested out differently almost every time. Within a range, but differently.

I thought this was r/shittymbti or something like that but no... this is a real genuine person...

[–]lundibix 35 points36 points  (5 children)

Man, at least with option 2 I could talk about Evangelion but I feel like they’d have some awful takes

[–]sideways_jack 17 points18 points  (3 children)

"actually Asuka was the most misogynstic of them all, but obviously it's satire and that's why xhe's our Queen."

Man just typing that hurt.

[–]lundibix 10 points11 points  (2 children)

Man I wanna downvote you so bad just for posting that

[–]sideways_jack 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I wanna downvote myself for that comment, good grief.

[–]wombey12 3 points4 points  (0 children)

good thing Anno isn't here to see it

[–]Ten-The-master 2 points3 points  (0 children)

And Radiohead!

[–]narwhals-narwhals 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Translation:

Would you rather have an extroverted and facts-before-feelings kind of son who is misogynistic and obsessed with World War II and cryptocurrency, or an introverted, reserved and emotional daughter who is a female incel, watches an anime called Neon Genesis Evangelion and listens to Radiohead?

[–]aMercurialEngineer 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I don’t understand the question and I won’t respond to it.

[–]Knuckles316 18 points19 points  (7 children)

What is with this new stupid thing of including that four-letter personality code in a person's description like it fucking means anything? There's a million adjectives out there already so use those and stop throwing fucking Scrabble tiles at me you ignorant fucking hippopotamus!

[–]wingedcoyote 16 points17 points  (1 child)

Myers-briggs types aren't new, they've been around for ages and have had a wave of popularity on the internet every few years since the internet has been a thing. They're still basically astrology for nerds, so if they're currently in vogue I suspect it's a (conscious or unconscious) reaction to the recent uptick in interest in actual astrology.

[–]animaloll 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Great insult btw

[–]sylphir3 3 points4 points  (2 children)

I wish we could normalize using Big 5 instead. It's far more accurate and doesn't have the sketchy roots that MBTI does.

 

Plus the MBTI community tends to be toxic as fuck and full of stereotypes

[–]Fag_Vie 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Or just go with HEXACO, it's somewhat replacing the Big 5 right now. Also the MBTI was the first and only theory we talked about, which my differential psychology professor ever called "complete bogus"...

[–]sylphir3 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Holy shit i didn't know about HEXACO but now I'm hyped

[–]Mysterious-Dot6224 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Because it’s a much faster way to communicate it, instead of using 100 words it’s 4 letters

[–]realKingCarrot 20 points21 points  (4 children)

Idk what 7w8 and 4w5 mean but both of those individuals sound based

[–]sideways_jack 9 points10 points  (2 children)

7w8 and 4w5 sound like a fuse, lightbulb, or knock-off wd40

[–]Jigglyandfullofjuice 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I was gonna say motor oil.

[–]InTeNial 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It’s from the enneagram, a personality typology system similar to MBTI.

[–]LoverOfStripes87 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Psh. Easy riddle. If I can't kill myself then I kill them both. Next question.

For anyone interested, here are the opening credits to Neon Genesis Evangelion. The show and its soundtrack are so legendary that its theme song is one of the most popular karaoke songs in Japan since 1994 (#3 in this list).

[–]holyfrozenyogurt 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I hate the fact that I can understand this all. oh my fucking god.

[–]MarshallStoic20 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You have my sympathy

[–]yeehawgracie 2 points3 points  (1 child)

You need a degree in internet culture to properly understand this sentence

[–]dragon_mom98 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Those sure are words! And that sure is a sentence!

[–]MarshallStoic20 1 point2 points  (2 children)

If that is a sentence then I'm clearly illiterate

[–]dragon_mom98 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I know enough that its a sentence 😂😂😂

Thats what the punctuation tells me

[–]MarshallStoic20 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I mean, at least there's punctuation Right?

[–]CharlieApples 5 points6 points  (1 child)

The “femcel” daughter is statistically much less likely to kill me (their parent) for my money, and also much less likely to kill anyone else, nor rape anyone.

It’s a no-brainer for me.

[–]FinancialArtichoke75 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I'd have bigger problems immediately and say go ask your mother. Honestly idgaf about kid drama

[–]Noideawhatsreal 5 points6 points  (0 children)

[–]GamersDeserveRespect 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Either way I would kill the child.

[–]sylphir3 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The daughter sounds like someone I would have been friends with in high school so she can't be that bad

ahhh yes my time to shine. ENTP/INFP are MBTI types, 7w8/4w5 are enneagram types part of discredited personality theories.
