I was wondering what you all think about the possibility of being two enneagram types. I’ve taken a few tests and I’m either a 9 or a 5. As I read up on the type profiles, I find that I fit both of them quite well. But, if I try to subscribe to just one of them, I feel part of my personality, something that is essential, is omitted. I can see how the MBTI can address this as straddling of two types, but I just don’t understand its implications with the enneagram types. Is this common? Is it acceptable to identify with two types? I’m curious as to what you think of this and to what insight you can lend.
I should note that as a child, I wanted to be either a priest or an astronaut. Then, when I got to college I double majored in physics and religion. Seems like picking one aspect of my being and going with it has never been something that I have been comfortable with. Or according to my suspicions, not something that I'm capable of.
I ordered a few books on the enneagram types, so I’ll have a better understanding of them come February. If I figure anything out, I’ll be sure to run it by this section of the forum. Thanks for your help.
