As for your first question, I avoid failure, weakness and conflict the most.
At my worst, where I feel most self-hate maybe or hopeless is when I haven't stood up for myself or when I am very stressed with work I don't enjoy and get stuck in a rut.
Andddd just realised I already replied to it lol, fortunately with the same answers. At least I'm consistent huh? But progress, I think I'm 7w6!
I hope you have found your Etype so you can start with your Work ;)
Your answers to what you avoid are respectively 3 8 and 9. Check out these types as well, especially 9
Some people I know I can type easily while there are others who I can never decide their type. I've read a Maitri book and will be reading Palmer next.
I still don't know what the hell my heart fix is and it can change in my signature tomorrow.
What would you attribute this to? - Enneagram wise that is.
I'm new to your posts and am not an expert. I can look through and then see if I have an idea.
What makes you go with 7w6 for starters? The reasoning might give me an opinion.
E: based off of your answers earlier in here, have you looked up 8 and its wings? While I wouldn't be confident of it, you touch base of it on the fear and self hate answers.
Doge 's question requires an answer ;)
I also don't have the best temper and usually keep it in until it boils over and I'll say something uncalled for or hit something (not someone). I work much better when I'm angry though, angry about being constrained by deadlines, feeling weak or overpowered. I'm more tenacious and feel protected from usual anxieties, fears, etc.
