enneagram 5

  1. Myers Briggs Forum
    I'd like to have more INxx and enneagram 5 friends but those people tend to be quite introverted, where should I go to socialise with them? I try to have those INTJ intellectual conversations with my SJ friends but they are either uninterested or very one-sided, e.g. I do most of the talking...
  2. Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    As a sp 853 INTJ I'm very secretive, I value privacy highly, I hate disclosing personal information to people whom I don't trust. Therefore I generally dislike talking about my family with unfamiliar people. However, many people think asking nosy questions about someone's family is the best...
  3. ENFP Forum - The Inspirers
    Hi, newbie enfp 5w6 here. I mainly made this post to see what other Enfps' experiences, relationships, and whatnot are with this enneagram type (or just people who've met with this type). I'm pretty private myself, so I get that there may not be a lot posting (as a silent lurker of mbti forums...
  4. Type 5 Forum - The Investigator
    According to the enneagram theory I am a type 5. Even after quite a number of years of being "into" the Enneagram, and knowing about counterphobic and phobic 6s, I've only recently learned that there is something called a "counterpassion" type. Back-story. I have a friend who for a long time I...
  5. Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    I've been able to find a lot of resources on how to *show* love to the different types, but not so much on how different types express love to others. My partner of several years now is a 5w4 (I am a 4w5). Our relationship has been so good and I'm really grateful for who they are and the...
  6. Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    Hi friends! My brother is a type 5, and I am a type 3. For as long as I can remember, my brother and I have not had the best relationship. He is older than I am and is smarter and more successful, but he doesn't work as hard. I think this is one place that causes tension in our relationship. I...
  7. Head Triad - Types 5,6,7
    I am core 9 looking for my head fix. Some head-y things about me.. -I am pessimistic and optimistic at the same time. Like, I'm a person that says, "What the hey" a lot and sees the best in situations and in people, but I have the worst case scenario in the back of my head a lot -I like some...
  8. Type 5 Forum - The Investigator
    Hi, I'm a type 5 - INFJ - tri 259. Started getting into enneagram a year ago. Still in early stages of learning the system I made a discord server for 5's to pool self development resources and advice : https://discord.gg/AgXBQ8
  9. Type 5 Forum - The Investigator
    Hello, I was just wondering how other Fives process their emotions. Do you use music? Poetry? Books? Do you think yourself into a feeling on your own? Does anyone who is a Type Five (or knows a Five) observe these patterns where when a Five is upset they listen to the song they're feeling and...
  10. What's my Enneagram type?
    Hello personality people, I've tried to figure out my Enneagram type a few times over the years but I haven't really ever been able to pin it down. Nothing seems quite right somehow... I have tested as a 5 and a 9, and I have read a bit about both. The thing is, they both sound a lot like me...
  11. What's my personality type?
    Hi! I'm an INTJ and I'm desperately trying to figure out my enneagram type. I've taken multiple quizzes and come up with 5 or 1 every time, but I can't seem to figure which is the best fit. *disclaimer, I just heard about the enneagram types last week, and I am not as familiar with all the...
  12. Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    He's a classic 4, emotionally expressive, revealing, believing he was inherently inferior, but also believing he was above others, making things a tragedy for himself was easy. He's even stated this, he always made things sadder than they actually were. Can someone explain to me why he's typed...
  13. Type 5 Forum - The Investigator
    Hello Guys, My partner is an INTJ 5w6 SP/SX. He is the typical intellectual, skeptical and reserved 5. He has a tendency to experience high anxiety (that he tries to hide) when he is confronted to situations he can not control and will be very fatalistic in some cases. As he is Self...
  14. Type 5 Forum - The Investigator
    I recently figured out that gut fix was 1w9. Furthermore, I was wondering how a 1 fix affects other enneagram 5 types?
  15. Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    Taken from the EnneaApp by Lori Ohlson. I'm unsure if this has been posted on PerC before, but I wanted to share in case it isn't. Type 1 These children felt heavily criticized, punished, or not good enough. Household rules may have felt inconsistent. As such, they became obsessed with being...

  18. What's my Enneagram type?
    I've taken a few different enneagram test before and my top possibilities were always 9w1, 4w5, or 5w4... I tend to have traits of different things, making it rather difficult to tell. These are some quick random things about myself, and how I think and feel: A lot of the time I feel either...
  19. Intro
    Hi everyone. INFP and 99% sure of it. In my teens I suspected I was INTJ, then a mild autism diagnosis arrived and although I don't know what to do about it, and I don't think it affects my life, it explains a lot. Enneagram 5 sx/so (prob 548 tritype). I'm not a pollyanna - more like a living...
  20. Type 5 Forum - The Investigator
    I met this guy on facebook, he's a type 5. We talked everyday, throughout the day for a year. He was so easy to talk to and I felt like we really got each other. When I told him I really liked him, he said he didn't feel the same and just saw me as a friend. I was confused because I was really...
