Tritype 952 - Knowledge or Nobody

The song is originally from Oz, yet I found this cover and realized the words struck a chord with me.

I could while away the hours
Conferrin' with the flowers
Consultin' with the rain
And my head I'd be scratchin'
While my thoughts were busy hatchin'
If I only had a brain
I'd unravel any riddle
For any individd-el
In trouble or in pain
With the thoughts I'd be thinkin'
I could be another Lincoln
If I only had a brain
Oh, I could tell you why
The ocean's near the shore
I could think of things I never thunk before
And then I'd sit and think some more
I would not be just a nothin'
My head all full of stuffin'
My heart all full of pain
Perhaps I'd deserve you
And be even worthy of you
If I only
If I only had a brain

Type 9 seems to be seen as this compliant, self-suppressed, blend into the background type. With Type 2 and Type 5, there's so much rejection and resignation of personal identity and feelings. For me, I've only found an attachment to language and the symbolic world as it relates to people and the patterns of life. Yet, simultaneously I find a strong frustration with the limitations of it. This all seems to culminate into some form of existential rage on a deeper level. Katherine Fauvre typed C.G. Jung as a 952 and I see through his work a similar attachment to language and symbolism, never anything about who he is. Reading a book you can often find at least small glances or a reflection of who a person is through their writing. But, in a lot of ways it seems like this inner world of impersonal thoughts and ideas becomes all there is to you. I'm curious if 'Problem Solvers' or others identify with this or have thoughts on it. Maybe I'm missing the mark here, let me know.
