This topic has been partly covered in Emotional Repressions-Developments, though will be addressed mainly here:

There are seven main Emotional Directions (ED), where people channel their energy unimpeded by Emotional Repressions. Besides this, there is a primary Emotional Direction and a secondary Emotional Direction, while the rest is about equally accessed, particularly if the user is in the Unified Consciousness.

The primary Emotional Direction is one where the person channels without thinking, or any conscious effort, while the second one is the one the person naturally looks for in life. The seven main Emotional Directions can be pictured as a person: the Mind-ED is on the top of the head, the Others-ED is in front of the heart, the Doing-ED is behind the shoulder-blades, the Self-ED is at the heart center. The Body-ED is at the stomach area. The Responsibility-ED is at the right hand, while the Indispensability-ED is at the lefthand.

The Emotional Direction Temperaments can be seen in objects, like cars, and even plants. This also extends to people.

The following diagram shows how Emotional Direction Temperaments can be found in Super Cars:

For Energy-beings, their Emotional Direction is usually either Self-ED Secondary, or have one of the other six as secondary (Mind, Body, Others, Doing). This extends to people with the Service Love Language (Responsibility primary) or Gifting Love Language (Indispensability-primary).

Here is Emotional Direction Temperament, shown in anime characters, from the manga, Brynhildr Darkness by Lynn Okamoto

Those primary EDs sound a lot like enneagram types
I can sort of get what you mean, though I find certain aspects linking more with other MBTI+ temperament systems. Ones in quote are from the website EnneagramInstitute.com:

Doing-oriented ED Temperament

3 THE ACHIEVER

The Success-Oriented, Pragmatic Type: Adaptive, Excelling, Driven, and Image-Conscious
Reptilian being, 8PM and 9PM Role Temperament

4 THE INDIVIDUALIST

The Sensitive, Withdrawn Type: Expressive, Dramatic, Self-Absorbed, and Temperamental
Body-oriented ED Temperament

5 THE INVESTIGATOR

The Intense, Cerebral Type: Perceptive, Innovative, Secretive, and Isolated
Mind-oriented ED Temperament

6 THE LOYALIST

The Committed, Security-Oriented Type: Engaging, Responsible, Anxious, and Suspicious
Indispensability-oriented ED Temperament

7 THE ENTHUSIAST

Clairaudient-primary Psychic Modality, Clairalient-primary Intuitive Modality

8 THE CHALLENGER

You don't even have to go as far as typing every enneatype, 3 main categories, known as triads already hugely represent your ideas.

Head - Mind ED
Heart - Others ED/Self ED
Body - Body ED/Doing ED

Conveniently there are instinctual variants:
https://www.eclecticenergies.com/enneagram/variants

Self-preservation - Self ED
Sexual - Others ED/Doing ED
Social - Other ED/Mind ED

They are really very similar, almost feels like remade enneagram.

Where did you get the information about the triads?

The variants feel somewhat similar to the Frequency Temperaments: https://www.personalitycafe.com/mye...nternal-feelings-emotions-based-people-2.html

Interestingly, if not surprising, the Directional Temperament can also be observed in the MBTI+ type. Here are examples of Directional Temperaments in the INFJ, physical intimacy love language, hands-on learner, SoCom, Energy beings:

I would like to think as myself as combination of mind and body, but I FEEL that body resonates with me more as by emotions, my body has a directive role on this. Yet however, I lead with a mind and never deviate much from it. Is it valid to be a combination in your system?

Yes, of course, certain people like homosexuals, Reptilians and Ascended Reptilian beings are not well defined in the Directional Temperament. This appears to pertain mainly to heterosexual Energy beings. You can read about the different beings in the Frequency Temperament here: https://www.personalitycafe.com/mye...nternal-feelings-emotions-based-people-2.html I still have to update the information on that thread, though.

Another way to tell is to keep a diary, in which you can read and see if you are really speaking to your mind, body, or another Directional Temperament.

This is to update the Directional Temperament diagram. Specifically, I have replaced the Doing-Directed with the ESTP Shadow Self (Shadow Self means cognitive functions in reverse order). I don't have a photo of the "original" ESTP shadow self, though someone similar in personality will do. The previous Doing-Directed (who is the INFJ-Shadow Self-"descendant" of the "original" Shadow Self ESTP) is moved to the Self-primary Doing-secondary.

These are not the “original” Sensor Shadow Self, though will be used as examples. The Mind-oriented ESTP appears to be homosocial (which implies that the original Mind-oriented ESTP was raped). The Other-oriented Directional Temperament ESTP appears to be heterosexual, 11PM Role Temperament, which means that she has had sex with the Other-oriented INFJ Shadow Self (also implying that the full Emotional Repertoire of the 12PM Energy being has been “uploaded” for 9-11PM Energy beings, in Other-oriented Directional Temperament, INFJ, hands-on learner, Energy being, Project-oriented Career Temperament)

Interestingly, INFJ and ENTP, hands-on, affirmation love language appear to be absent of Directional Temperament (they are also free of the Career Temperaments).

The absence of Directional and Career Temperaments possibly mean that they are "more ancient or coming first into being" on the "genealogical time scale".

I have reexamined the Experience Temperament, and find that it's related to the Directional Temperament, namely:

Truth oriented people are Body-oriented in the Directional Temperament
Wisdom oriented people are Mind-oriented in the Directional Temperament
Experience oriented people are Others-oriented in the Directional Temperament

Can't believe how I've missed these threads of yours.
And I still don't understand half of what you're saying, haha

Thank you for your interest.

I have been making new threads in the Other Personality Theories subforum, even though they are also MBTI+. If you are interested, you can view them here:
