Why are some people so difficult to type?

I think there are number of possibilities that people disagree on someone's type.
  • You may not understand the types well enough to make a clear distinction.
  • You may not know the person being typed very well.
  • You may actually have different interpretations about what the types represent.
  • You may be noticing and emphasizing different things about the person being typed.
  • You may only be looking at personality instead of Enneagram type itself.
  • No one is really just one type.
I made a blog post about my thoughts on this.

What do you think?
