For the longest time I thought I was a 1 but after looking deeper I don't think it's me. I consider myself a principled person but not obsessively critical of myself in fact I tend to accept my flaws and give myself constructive criticism. Just a little backstory...Right now I'm struggling with 3 or 9 or maybe still 1 even. +3I can be obsessed with completing a goal, sometimes I'll challenge myself to do stupid things that waste time like open a candy wrapper using one hand. I always have some goal in mind even when I'm not working on that goal. I was much more active as a kid and the drive to do something someone thought I couldn't do has been a life constant.-3I'm truthful to a fault. It's not something new It's always been that way. I don't show off or like show offs, in fact I've been called modest. I can have extreme bouts of laziness where I'm just tossed to the wayside though I do get angry at myself for being distracted. That's become a more adult problem. I guess the main problem with the 3 typing is the popular notion of being desperate for attention and doing anything to get it. I don't even remotely relate to that idea. I refuse to sacrifice my sense of identity to appease people. Typically if I don't belong some place I just withdraw. I'm extremely reclusive in fact, not because I want to be but rather I don't really connect with people easily.+9It's easy for me to relax! I over sleep, can daydream (though it's usually about completing a goal), and it's much easier for me to take a break doing something that to start. If I had to symbolize myself one symbol one definitely be a cloud. No worries, super relaxed, everything will be great. I'm usually the one to calm someone down or deflate a situation. I wasn't always this way, probably peaked my early 20s. It's kind of been a detriment to my productivity really-9I'm not agreeable. I can definitely try to smooth over my opinions but I always give my real opinion on things.. I’m kind of a wet blanket to be honest. As a child this was even worse I pretty much had no filter! I remember as a kid telling a story about a cockroach being on my toothbrush. I thought it was hilarious. My teacher gave me a toothbrush and my mom was embarrassed I even told anyone, it wasn't til' I was older until I picked up how that might have made them feel, oops!Other…I entertained the idea of 4 for a while but I don't struggle with my emotions. I do try to understand what it is I'm trying to tell myself but I don't dive into my emotions for the experience.I sometimes test as a 5 and I probably come off pretty 5-ish. But I only tend to learn things if they're useful to me or stimulating to hear about. I don't relate to the quest for knowledge for the sake of knowing even a little,I haven't completely ruled out 1. I can be pretty critical especially when I’m busy and I'm really good at sticking to my principles but I don't really identify myself with valuing myself primarily on virtues. My principles are more in the line of... that's not the person I want to be and to betray that is to betray myself, which sounds more image triad-ish.I'd say I went through 3 periods in my life.In my childhood I was carefree, family oriented, and much more assertiveIn my teen years I became the opposite, reclusive, disciplined, work oriented, and focusedAs an adult I've been more soft, laid back, tolerant, and understandingBut I've always been truthful, goal oriented, stubborn, and a tad eccentric.Any takes? Also been wondering my tritype.317 937 yadda yadda, I get the feeling 7 is in there but I know I'm not a 7 which makes it hard to account for that heavily withdrawn part of me..

Eh quick note. The website is broken or something, can't do paragraphs even using html. Sorry for the wall of text.
