Hello 1s,

I took a break from this place in order to take some time to figure things out. I was debating between types 6 and 1, and for me, there was a very fine line between the two.
Because I believed I was a 6 for so long, I posted a number of things in the type 6 forum. Here is the link, for those who are interested:

I think the reason it was such a struggle is that I am a perfectionist, and have been in serious denial as to how much perfectionism was impacting me. I know very well that I set ridiculously high standards for myself. Being a truth seeker, I am open to new perspectives, as they may help me to understand my own views better. The problem is, I am a type 1 under stress. I come across as an unhealthy manifestation of a type 4 (healthy 4s are awesome! Hey, my heart fix is 4).

So yes, I feel like I've finally figured things out. And I have a sense of peace that I didn't have when I believed I was a 6, so maybe that answers something as well.

LOLLLL OMG I love it!!!! "'1' of you!!!" this is so great! I love punny jokes! They're so funny, not in a ha-ha way but in an endearing corny way :p.

*fistbumps fellow gut type*

Since I discovered and read more about the enneagram I realized over time what a strong 1 wing I have (because like many stereotypical 9s, my self-awareness was so absurdly lacking), and I am trying to develop it even more.

Yeah, I have an "interesting" sense of humour. Which is good, because I like making others laugh. I actually enjoy making others laugh more than having a good laugh myself (not that the latter is bad- quite the opposite).

@LittleB81 - Gah! I have been discovered! O_O Well, I have been thinking. ^^' People have tried to type me as One. I could almost see myself as One. Almost. But... asdhjkrglk. @[email protected] I told myself I wouldn't over think! I am over thinking! -headdesk-

^ The internal war within.

I think I'm somebody who just happens to have a very unfortunately strong inner-critic. I way over analyze things. I think my motivations remain that of a Six.
