    "Wake up calls" and "red flags" by type.

    The Wake-Up Call is that point between healthy and average levels of development in which there is a glimpse of deteriorization. It is helpful to be aware of the behavior that surfaces when your preferred strategy is being challenged. In the average levels the more stereotypical traits of our personality type are evident as the ego makes a bid for its job security. For the nine types, they are as follows:

    Type 1 – Feeling a sense of personal obligation to fix everything themselves

    Type 2 – Believing that they must go out to others to win them over

    Type 3 – Beginning to drive themselves for status and attention

    Type 4 – Holding on to and intensifying feelings through the imagination

    Type 5 – Withdrawing from reality into concepts and mental worlds

    Type 6 – Becoming dependent on something outside the self for guidance

    Type 7 – Feeling that something better is available somewhere else

    Type 8 – Feeling that they must push and struggle to make things happen

    Type 9 – Outwardly accommodating themselves to others



    With the Red Flag the stakes have been ramped up to more serious proportions. Remember that at each shock point another one of the centers (head, heart or belly) becomes jeopardized. A person is very much in need of professional support at this point because a deteriorization to the unhealthy levels affects all three of the centers. Called the Red Flag Fears, they are as follows:

    Type 1 – That their ideals are actually wrong and counterproductive

    Type 2 – That they are driving friends and loved ones away

    Type 3 – That they are failing, that their claims are empty and fraudulent

    Type 4 – That they are ruining their lives and wasting their opportunities

    Type 5 – That they are never going to find a place in the world or with people

    Type 6 – That their own actions have harmed their security

    Type 7 – That their activities are bringing them pain and unhappiness

    Type 8 – That others are turning against them and will retaliate

    Type 9 – That they will be forced by reality to deal with their problems

    (not particularly indepth, a little ambiguous, and perhaps leaning towards certain subtypes more than core types, but interesting none the less)

    By what you're saying, I'm Type 4, not Type 5. Have I mistyped myself, again?
    I have to relate this to my up's and down's somehow, like when I am social or
    trying to be social, and when I am alone.

    And for some weird reason I can see myself as a Type 1, hardcore Type 1 too.
    Why?

    I don't know much about the Enneagram, and I'm not sure if I'm trying to learn
    more about it or trying to adapt my own theories into it but this is what I got:

    Edited: Actually, you can remove "Up's" and "Down's" and just let it
    say "Social" and "Alone" instead, because that's what I literally meant.

    Yeah, I was gonna say that it is pretty ambiguous. But it's still interesting.

    @ MikeAngell: This may be more helpful if you've determined your type rather than as a typing tool.
    For the 'wake-up calls', I can relate to 5, 7, and 8. For the 'red flag fears', I can relate best to 3 and 4.
