Yesterday, I watched a podcast of Personalityhacker on Youtube talking about their recent workshop/retreat (The Way of the Symbols) with Uranio Paes and Beatrice Chestnut on the spiritual uses of the Enneagram: .
In this lenghty video, one tiny quote caught my attention (I'm paraphrasing) ...
I'm going off a new tangent here and want to ask people on why they think they are this type/instinct/tritype etc.
So, this thread is all about you SP doms! Regardless of your core enneatype/MBTI/Tritype/etc., why do you think you're an SP dom?
Not SP so I'm gonna skip my two cents...
So mulling around as always about the trials and tribulations of being SX first, SO last.
I was thinking rather than calling is Sexual, Emotional Connection seems more apt. Or Emotional Intimacy. I think that more aptly captures the need.
I had a bad "thing" with some friends the...
Do the instinctual variant (stand-alone) descriptions you relate to, match up with your Enneagram Type's (instinctual variant) subtype description?
I always score incredibly high (almost a tie) on both the Sexual & Self-Preservation instincts (when reading and interpreting their stand-alone...
What core type and wing(s) are you? Which of these conversations can you relate to most? What are your stacking? I wonder what variant(s) that enjoys discussions about religion, politics and sex without getting emotional about it?
Topics SP (Self-Preservation) types might bring up in...
When I first read about the three enneagram instincts, the first thing that came to my mind was Plato and his tripartite theory of soul.
So, basically, the So Variant would be the Spirited, Sx = Appetitive, and finally, Sp = Logical soul.
Or maybe they correlate with the three Centers...
These excerpts make us look so needy! lol. But, even though I rarely express it in real life, this description is accurate. Maybe it is unhealthy, and maybe just a manifistation on my bad childhood... probably both, but this is a big part of who I am.
I've never been in a real relationship...
I think the Self Preservation instinct could show up in terms of creating a warm, nesting relationship. Having the bond melt with their (both internal and external) 'castle'.
Like spending a lot of resources in quality products - which again, strengthens the feeling of having a safe-having - to...
Yeah. Here is another one. Let me annoy you with the usual. (And please ignore the mistakes which I'm going to make most certainly. English isn't my native language. But this site is just the best and... *sigh*)
Why i might be so:
- subjective opinions of other people often are very...
This is based on the three instinctual variants: Soc, Sx, SP.
Picture you are in the following scenario: The world has experienced a worst-case zombie apocalypse with the far majority of the population of earth now being zombies. There are still pockets of humanity around the place, and...
We do not have nicknames on subtypes/winged subtypes and many of us do not like the existing names. Since we are members of the largest typing community, let it be our right to name all the 81 winged subtype.
What we have got so far:
I do not know how I put this.
If extreme side of a subtype is considered unhealthy isn’t it a direct indicator for a person to take action and fix it? For a SP if strategy is extreme aggressiveness or the person is too defensive isn’t that person considered unhealthy? Same applies to social...
Few Enneagram schools think that addressing and giving conscious attention to our last instinct or our blind spot is key to our personal growth. A SP last can develop certain inwardness and A SO or SOC last can develop himself by giving deliberate attention to others such as groups, teams...
I figured it was time to figure out my tritype and check my own typing of myself
What age range are you in?
I'm 17. Just graduated high-school a month ago
Any disorders or conditions we should know about?
Not that I'm aware of :)
1. What do you think your life...
ENFP TYPE 7 - INSTINCTIVE "Body language, Eye Contact" with others MAKES YOU FEEL
I am a ENFP type 7
At times I feel like I have a special gift, the gift being " super strong instincts"
To the point that eye contact with others makes me uncomfortable and akward
And I can pick up...
