  1. Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    Hi everyone, first time posting on this forum after a lot of lurking on the Chestnut subtype threads, my roommates pushed me to join after they got sick of me going on and on about my stress arrow theory. I've never seen anybody put it this way before so I'm doing it now. Apologies if it...
  2. What's my Enneagram type?
    Hey guys, i've been typed as 1 since 2016, and it's astonishing that the main type hasn't changed since. But recently, some people here and on discord have suggested ideas such as this one that have caused me to doubt my classification. @Arrogantly Grateful (please offer any insights)...
  3. Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    Hi all, Check out this link about how to integrate (or grow) for each enneagram type/wing/instinctual stacking combination: enneagramintegration.com
  4. Type 9 Forum - The Peacemaker
    As someone who is new to this self discovery, I resonate with everything in the type 9 descriptions- right down to thinking there was nothing I could do to make a difference (at my unhealthy stages) Now that I want to take every step to become more conscious and healthy in my type, I want to...
  5. Type 5 Forum - The Investigator
    Hi fellows, I was wondering if you could share some advice on something I cannot find a solution for. :smile: I am a type 5 personality, with wings both in 4 and 6, INTP. My path in life has been less than clear. The thing is, I cannot immerse myself too much in 5 activities. If I do, I will...
  6. Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    Hello, everyone. I've always been incredibly skeptical about the directions of integration and disintegration on the Enneagram, since I haven't seen anything that really backs it up other than idealized suppositions and eye-catching flow charts. As a 4, I have actually observed myself acting...
  7. Type 8 Forum - The Challenger
      Could there be a connection between an Eight's "Big Lie" of maintaining a sense of internal control/power, and an insecure link to 2-growth and 5-disintegration?      The example from my life that brought this to light:       Thoughts?

    Why can't I let myself socially integrate? I usually end up just feeling like this, as if my intensity were a whole separate dimension added onto me, acting as a force field to keep people away. I really need people, and I love being around them... it's just that I believe I have deep mistrust...
  9. Member Polls
    For example, if you are a type 9, your integration point would be at type 3 and your disintegration point would be at type 6. If you are/have dated a 3, you would be/have dated your integration point..you get the picture. :P Here is what I want to know: -Have you dated along your line of...
  10. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    Hi folks... My nickname is a little tough, so you can call me David. First of all, I want to apologize for the grammar mistakes that I'll certainly make. Like all INTPs I'm a grammar Nazi, but I'm Italian and I'm still learning that wonderful language that is English. Let's start. I've been...
  11. Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    This description of type four has some really good and informative points, especially in regards to health and growth.
  12. Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    I suppose the integrating 5 would look healthier, but can anyone provide insight into their characteristics (with examples from life, preferably)?
  13. Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    I'm a four who has begun an endeavor to reach healthy levels. I've read that fours, at healthier levels, naturally want to improve themselves. I was curious about what other feelings healthier fours begin to feel. Side affects of healthiness, if you will, haha. Thanks in advance!!

    - - - -----I think the dominant-inferior function relationship is the most complicated. First, I am not saying those functions are mutually exclusive. Rather, they are two opposite ends of the same stick. Think of our minds as having 100 points to spend on that stick--apportioned to Ni and Se...
  15. Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    Anyone else part of the triad of the primary numbers, 3, 6, 9 or has anything to say about this type set up. I hear of a lot of conflicting information about being part of this group, some of which states these numbers actually work in harmony with each other but the confusion I find lies within...
  16. Type 5 Forum - The Investigator
    I am sure there are similar threads somewhere with the associated links, but I am more interested in anecdotal accounts in this instance. What are your experiences with both a type 5's disintegration toward 7 and our integration toward type 8? Please describe.

    Not many are familiar with the term Rolfing let alone the complexity of each of the 10 sessions. So in an effort to share with you how great it has been...I'm blogging about it! At 37 I was really starting to feel more like I was 87. Fractures in my back, poor posture and sitting at a desk...
  18. INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    In your experience, does being typed as an INTJ changed your self-concept? To what extent? I ask this because it seems that people tend to identify themselves with their superior functions (e.g. "I am a Thinker") and don't seem to explore other, less integrated shadow functions -the so called...
