I actually think I'm Sx/Soc over Soc/Sx now.... Unsure if I should answer anyways.Ok so I'm really frustrated because I'm trying to find the Beatrice Chestnut social 9 description on the internet, so I could post it here and see if you guys related to it, but I can't.....
Well, if anyone has that book and has read the description, how well do you relate to it?? Maybe later I will just sum it up here based on the book.
Also, how well do you guys relate to the average type nine description? What about the average INFJ description? Do you have any major differences from them?

I relate to a lot of what's said about type 9's and also not at all to other things commonly attributed to us, so I'm not sure? I'll just go through what I relate to and don't off the top of my head.....how well do you guys relate to the average type nine description?
I dunno, it's been a while since I've looked at MBTI descriptions. I more just do functions now but from what I remember, I think I generally related to the average description pretty well? The major things I would say I don't relate to much are that I don't have typical Judger traits like being orderly or having high expectations or anything like that at all. Dichotomy-wise, I'm probably more of an INFP but I have waaaaaay too much Fe for that, haha. Um, and I think INFJs are usually described as having more clearly defined values and being more sure of who they are and just generally self aware and I don't relate to that as much.....What about the average INFJ description? Do you have any major differences from them?
Hahaaa yeah, I came across this a lot in enneagram trainings- they call it the "inner sanctum, where everything is happy and fun" and one guy who was a Nine was like "When I'm stressed out, I imagine myself down by the lake."- I remember it being said a lot in 9 descriptions that our internal landscapes are like warm summer days with birds chirping and stuff and um, let's just say I reeeeeeeally wish I related to that.....
Goodness I would NEVER say that! I would be quite a hypocrite if I did.Um, so that's all that comes to mind. Might have missed some things but I think that covers it preeeeeetty well. And before you go "OMG no 9 would spend that long on a post!", it's really just so I can avoid doing other, actually important things. Sue me. >_>
Haha! Mine is more like the Walking Dead where I'm simultaneously the zombies and the person fighting them. It's..... interesting, haha.Hahaaa yeah, I came across this a lot in enneagram trainings- they call it the "inner sanctum, where everything is happy and fun" and one guy who was a Nine was like "When I'm stressed out, I imagine myself down by the lake."
So yeah like... I have an "inner sanctum" too, except it usually involves something like me performing heroic acts during the apocalypse and/or alien abduction, dying to save my loved ones, being involved in some hugely melo-dramatic tale of heartbreak and subsequent romantic proposals (essentially a jane austen novel), etc... Really the whole "inner sanctum" thing sounds incredibly boring to me! My Inner Disaster Movie is much more entertaining
Okay mom. :tongue::crying:But... stop procrastinating!
This perfectly describes my passion in life and what feels meaningful to me. I have said these words before, almost exact, for what I want to get out of life. I also want to teach/counsel people to help them reach their potential, but I haven't figured out my specific path yet. I just had to respond to this though, because it felt like I was reading my own thoughts.I love teaching (it's my job as an Olistic Counselor Trainer, and Enneagram is one of the disciplines I actually teach. Fourth Way and MBTI as well) and helping other people finding their own personal qualities, talents and so on. Personal development is what I mostly love, and I feel "filled" when I can do this with a small-medium sized group of people (from 5 to 10). It's exactly what makes me feel alive, it really gives me a sense of a life worth living.
I recognize myself in many things that have been said, so I'll try to think of further points of agreement or disagreement.Also, how well do you guys relate to the average type nine description? What about the average INFJ description? Do you have any major differences from them?
