  1. Boring and Standard Title That Yields Less and More Mediocre Responses

    Intro
    First the usual, hi I'm an INTJ, type five...bla bla bla... Next, I'm socially inept, even on the internet which is difficult to achieve. I avoid telling people about my interest in politics because they always assume it means I like to debate party policies and not that I enjoy the inner...

    Type 5 Forum - The Investigator
    Forgive me for starting a new thread as my first post, but I am desperate. I'm 23. I've grown apart from my high school friends.

  3. [Enneagram Type 5] 5 - isolation, nightmares, ect.

    Type 5 Forum - The Investigator
    Recently, I had to prematurely leave my University studies for the remainder of the semester. A month or so prior, I began to have disturbing nightmares (every single night). These dreams would go long and uninterrupted, uncharacteristic of my typical sleep pattern(s). They were not your...

    I suppose the integrating 5 would look healthier, but can anyone provide insight into their characteristics (with examples from life, preferably)?
  5. Help Sorting Out Enneagram Type

    What's my personality type?
    I am not sure I am interpreting the results correctly. The highest scale is 5, the second is 4 (which is close in elevation to the high 5), and third is six. I have only done the test that gives the primary scale results - haven't done a tri-type test yet. With the results I have I was thinking...
  6. [Enneagram Type 5] Who Loves Fives? Why?

    Type 5 Forum - The Investigator
    This is not intended as one of those mopey "who will ever love me threads", I am genuinely curious as to what types if any are most attracted to Fives. I arrived at this question during my research on Twos in which I found that they really didn't seem to have a strong opinion of Fives one way or...

    Type 5 Forum - The Investigator
    Some people see the world as dangerous, and some see it as safe. Some see it as just or unjust. Nevertheless, we all live in the same world. Elements of our personality color our views, and human perception is little more than an inkblot test. One purpose of the Enneagram of Personality is to...

    Head Triad - Types 5,6,7
    I can't believe that no one has made a thread like this before! Anyway, this thread is self-explanatory, just post things that remind you of your "fiveness". So I'll start. You know you're a type five when you would rather spend a Saturday night reading than going to a party or the mall.
  10. How We Stay Stuck

    Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    Once we establish our personality styles or paradigms to help us apprehend and navigate around the world, we can either keep them pliant, flexible, accommodating, and up to date; or we can rigidly maintain them, assimilating everything into them, and suffer what Joel Barker (1992) calls...
  11. The Three Vs of the Enneagram

    Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    Author: Jerry Wagner When I was first introduced to the Enneagram, we got only the bad stuff -- the distortions, fixations, compulsions, exaggerations, vices, bad breath, etc. When I, in turn, presented the Enneagram styles this way, people would ask: "Isn’t there anything good about any...

  17. Statements of Type 5

    Type 5 Forum - The Investigator
    1. I have the capacity to have deep insights into the world around me, and I almost always perceive things that others miss or ignore. 2. Foresight is one of my great capacities: I seem to be able to predict the way things will turn out before they take place. 3. I have always had the...

    The Dominant Affect Groups are important for transformational work because they reveal the unconscious emotional background we bring to all areas of our lives. In technical language, these have to do with 'object-relations' theory. Modern psychological theory has identified three fundamental...
  19. The Distinctions of Type 5

    Type 5 Forum - The Investigator
    Fives, Sixes and Sevens share a general undercurrent of fear and form another emotional trio.

Instead, they tend to unconsciously anticipate life's dangers and react from an emotional...
