I notice that some repeat, as in the 153 tritype for the core 3 (315/351) is the same description as the tritype for a core 5 (513/531).

Thanks for pointing me that :) After a while copy-pasting, It's very easy for me to mangle some of the decriptions.

I wouldn't rely on Kfauvre's understanding of the archetypes; notoriously, she is even herself mistyped.

She is? What has she mistyped herself to? Is it MBTI or Enneagram or both?

I think she self-types NeTi? she may be that; idk. I'm currently undergoing a rennaissance in my understanding of jungian cogtype after over a decade in MemeBTI, so idfk anything now.

she is a 3w4 self-typing as I think an 8w7?

I know that she's been hovering between ENFP and ENTP from a long time. From what I've seen in her recent videos, she self-types as ENTP.
As for her Enneatype, she says she's an 8w7 874 (8w7 7w8 4w5) sx/sp. I'm curious to know where do you see that 3w4 :)

As a disclaimer I dislike tritype as it seems all about identity and has zero to do with growth, but I accept the concept exists, that though, eww. I have a visceral reaction to so many of those words. May as well be a horoscope.

to be honest, I find the whole of enneagram a bit limiting and confusing. I don't think it stands well on its own save for maybe easy workforce identification and better suited to being supplemental to other systems...I would be more comfortable if the literature focused on the types in motion and in active functionality ... to which we could move towards tritypes or something a rubik's cube (perhaps more a bit of a magic square.).

now, tritypes in practice is a bit wonky but it's possible to make the concept multidimensional. . . such as an illustration of the many different masks or hats we wear or modes we operate in different aspects of our daily lives.

People adjust to the various roles required of us.. sometimes this is integrated with self but far more often these take the forms of distinctive personalities in and of their environments and its people.

we can address these different aspects, that are both more than and less than ourselves, by assigning them a number. goals can be set for each mode, with the recognition of its strengths and weaknesses. though, the more responsibilities one has in life, the generally more fragmented they become in all aspects of their lives... where we would likely focus on consolidation, if not integration of a greater sum of their parts more immediately.

maybe drawing inspiration from or working within parts therapy or the internal family systems model.
