Just like in the Riso-Hudson book "The Wisdom of the Enneagram", once we start moving down the average levels of health, we inevitably cause conflict's because we have others and our environment feed our ego's agenda (needless to say, there's 9 distinct ego agendas). It's about (in their school of Enneagram thought) becoming more free by being less attached to our ego, and it's by cultivating awareness and becoming more present, that we accomplish or strive for this.
Thanks for sharing.
How to be compliant and harmonious. Perfect thread for a 9.

It's better to try to understand them, Nicomendes.
Here are mine from a type 4 perspective:
- I appreciate thoughtful and sincere compliments
- Sometimes, I'll offer my own experiences to better relate to you. This isn't to make the conversation about myself (or at least this isn't my intention)
- I enjoy time by myself! This doesn't mean that I'm sad or lonely
- And being sad or lonely isn't necessarily a "bad" thing. I can learn a lot about myself in times like these
- I also enjoy time with others but skew toward a handful of close friends over a large group of less close friends
- Sometimes, I am overreacting
I strongly relate to the 9 description and a bit to the type 2's as well, but not to the 6's. This is annoying.
Getting along with more people is as simple as saying to yourself, "Not everyone is going to think like me. And that's okay."
