    I managed to get through most of tritypes, and I am amused at how a lot of these descriptions are just a compilations of stereotypes of three types jammed together. I was reading through my tritype ("The Ambassador"...haha) and it was obvious that what the description amounted to was a simple formula of success-oriented 3 + free-spirited energetic 7 + peace-loving 9 = triple-positive, free-spirited, peace-loving hippy *dances barefoot around the spring maypole*. I've never really been impressed by a lot of tritype descriptions, and the ones I have come from individuals who have direct knowledge of how their fixes affect them personally so you get a detailed picture of how each fix manifests in an individual, rather than some cute but trite copy-and-paste description.

    I definitely agree. It is a trend I noticed while compiling all this stuff. This is why I refuse to buy the Fauvres' book, which is what they told me to do after I asked them about my tri-type. "Q: What is the 3-7-1 like? A: This is a type that likes to be efficient in a fun and principled way." That tells me nothing. It gets to be very frustrating, and I have come to the conclusion that to understand tri-types, one must understand each of the 9 types. Once you really understand the types individually, then you can understand how they would interact.

    I'd really like others to post how their fixes affect them personally, as you said, to give balance to the descriptions I posted here.

    Oh man, the Favure's IMO have the most cheesiest tritype descriptions out there. I recognized which ones were theirs while reading the thread by noting their cute packaged tone. I think it would be hard to get people to post accurate tritype/trifix (whatever floats your boat) descriptions because there is a high tendency to mistype when finding your non-core fixes. Identifying your other two fixes is a bit trickier because their core fixations aren't going to be as apparent as your main one so their manifesting behaviours and patterns are a bit trickier to catch. For instance, ever since I stumbled upon the enneagram I thought for sure I had a 4-fix based on just reading a few descriptions of the type, until I actually started contemplating my issues related to the image triad and realized I mistyped my image fix.

    I agree with @Harley and @madhatter

    I am a 5-4-1. People who know me well in real life would attest to this. The 5 and 4 traits are almost tied so it has been difficult for me to discern which is my core.

    This tritype in myself looks something like this: A longing loner who is DEEPLY passionate yet externally looks like an ice queen. There is a battle between the 5 and 4 that creates great difficulty for my pysche. The 5 in me yearns for independence, to be totally self-sufficient and to be left alone so I can enjoy my thoughts. The 5 in me is greedy and wants life on my terms...my space, my rules, my time, my money, my stuff...get out and let me be. The 4 in me craves union with another who can appreciate the beauty in the art of life that surrounds us. I don't especially have a desire to feel unique, I know I am unique but in a very lonely way.

    People with the 4/5 dominance probably struggle with the mind/heart dichotomy. Rather than being able to blend the two, they become two separate entities i.e. "This moment I need to use my heart, now I need to use my mind and never the twain shall meet". It has a feeling of the mind and heart being enemies that have agreed to keep the peace as long as each leaves the other alone. I have been at both healthy levels and unhealthy levels. At unhealthy levels I believe suicide is quite inevitable. The dissonance is just too profound...the mind and heart rally and end up destroying one another and as a result, take the body down.

    The 1 is quite apparent in this tritype, I think. When you have the mind and heart battling it out, inevitably they will exhaust and the gut instinct takes charge. There is nothing like the superego of a type 1 to grab the wheel in chaos. What is "right" and what is "ethical" must be upheld with a passion and clarity unmatched. *Hopefully it will be for the good because I can see someone of this type with evil motives commanding an army "for the cause"*

    Overall, the tritype descriptions are lame. I agree, they take one personality trait from each fix and throw them together in whichever order the tri happens to be and voila here you are. Reminds me of horoscopes in a way and I certainly don't like having the wool pulled over my eyes.

    My version of 5-4-1: march to their own drummer, loner, cerebral, sensitive, unique view of the world, honest, deep thinker

    Yeah, it took me a long time to realize I was a core 9 due to overly neat and contrived descriptions. Apparently 9 sx can be quite different than 9 sp (which is the "typical" 9 described)... plus, I have a strong 4 fix that skews a lot of the 9 traits.

    Maybe we should all try to write our own tritype descriptions (for our own tritypes) and compile them into a thread.

    Sounds more sp/sx or something, I can relate to that and I am a 6, not a 5

    I really hate 6 stereotypes and 3-6-9 sterotypes...

    She said this is the type most likely to be able to be the chameleon and will be able to adjust themselves according to whomever they are around. Having the 3 relating types and the 3 primary types they can have the most difficulty pinpointing not only their tritype but their dominant strategy. She said they will almost always think they are 3s, because they will value success and will be inclined to adjust to fit a given situation. She said they need to stay engaged and have harmony to feel happy which is what causes the constant adjustment.
    I don't feel able to adjust myself well, I don't even feel I really fit in, I don't even feel completely comfortable. I usually hide away from those things that make me uncomfortable and try to find things I can align myself with rather than align myself to things. I do, however, place value on getting through life, but it's much deeper than what is here. I place value on knowing what life is and what things 'really are'. I think the three in me makes me strive for doing something innovative with what I am interested in, but it's not the most important thing for me.

    They are most likely to fit into the cultural millieu of what is expected of them but that their life mission is to bring harmony and she calls this the true mediator archetype. She said they can be so focused on fitting in and belonging that they lose themeselves and forget to speak their personal truths for fear of not relating to others.
    I do not care at all for harmony. I don't feel I fit what is expected of me culturally more than anyone else and in fact, I'm actually very individualistic and individualized. And instead of bringing harmony, I usually go for chaos. The way I might be able to fit that is with my social anxiety, but I don't really consider that 'myself'.

    Your emotional energy goes towards seeking attachments with ideas and others. You want to be bonded to people. You also want to create balance and are uncomfortable with extremes. You tend to see relationships as a part of yourself. Overall, you are positively identified with others and may have amnesia for the more difficult or negative aspects of your relationships.
    I'm a huge loner, more reserved than most people who call themselves loners and I have no friends except for my girlfriend. I would like to find people who I can relate to and have deep friendships with them, but that's extremely hard. Otherwise, I can live without these. 'Uncomfortable with extremes' is completely laughable for me...I am an extreme person, pretty much only know extremes. And that's how I like it. I do want internal balance in some aspects, though. I am negatively identified with most people, pretty much. I do have a lot of passion for my interests and for beauty, perhaps that could go for the first line.

    3-6-9 - The Citizen

    This tritype would be most characterized by being influenced by their society. They usually embody everything that their society is. They need to adapt in order to relieve tension and stress.
    Least favorite...'the citizen'...
    I think where my 6 comes in is that I avoid being influence by society, I am very rebellious in this way. It makes me anxious to think of how i might be being influenced mentally. I need to defy in order to relieve tension and stress in contrast with that.

    these tri types can be confusing to say the least. plus, there is a lot of overlap, too.
