Let's see if this works this time. :ninja:
RULES:


a) Only offer your insights when solicited by a member.

b) If you have any kind of pre existing conflict with a member, don't use the thread as a platform to get things off your chest. Maintain respectful distance.

c) If the member is new to the forum or you're unfamiliar with them, DO encourage them to make use of one our Enneagram questionnaires to type themselves because you can't get a full on type assessment on this thread ONLY pointers.

d) Don't coerce anyone into accepting your type suggestion. They are free to leave the discussion as they choose. Respect that.

e) If you feel pushed, please let people know so they can back away. This forum is actually a lot healthier than most I've seen or know of. Besides, a non-abusive person taking time out to help you would not want to be accused of harassment without even knowing they have accidentally made you feel hurt/shamed or whatever. It is your responsibility to communicate how you're feeling. It's the other person's responsibility to treat you with respect and compassion, as it is a sensitive process even on an informal thread.

f)
If you have any issues or concerns, the administration, especially Promethea who feels strongly about preventing typing harassment would be more than glad to help. I have had extended discussions on the subject, with her, and anyone here should feel comfortable approaching her on this issue.

Interesting thread idea... I think I'll also throw myself in here on the off-chance anyone sees a mistype on my part.

I'll volunteer. I've been considering a core of six over my current type three.

I don't know if I'm a core 1 or 6 (or maybe even a 2). I appreciate insight from anyone who's willing to give some :)

If anyone's been wanting to call me out on a mistype, I dare you now. Otherwise:

@Donovan - my impression of your type is of definitely being part of the Head triad, and not 5 or 7. What made you consider 9 and 2?

@KINGoftheAMAZONS - 1 and 6 can be tricky. Are you finding it difficult to tell whether you're using your gut or your head more? (This would be the breaker)

@Marlowe: I don't see any anxiety in you. possibly a 6 fix, but you come across a lot more calm and less pessimistic than a 6
@Cosmic Orgasm: I don't know how you see 3 as even a possibility. you don't have a drop of deceit or image manipulation in you. I'm not even sure you have it as a fix.
@The Scorched Earth: I still can't see you as anything but 9w1 or 1w9 (probably the former). your energy is much more mellow than any of the 4s I've met and you seem to have a subtle undercurrent of unexpressed anger. your primary neurosis seems to be acedia/an ability to assert your own needs/desires. additionally, I have a lot of trouble seeing a 4w5 mistype at 3 for as long as you did. INFJ 9w1>4w5>5w6 Sp/Sx sounds about right. I haven't ruled out 1w9 cuz the 9 wing and 4 and 5 fixes would make you seem pretty damn ego, but you lack a certain sternness and preachiness present in all the 1s I've met. compare your posting style to, say, @snail. there is a pretty big difference
@Paradigm: correctly typed
@sharktooth: correctly typed, though I could see an 8w9 or 9w8 fix (maybe that's just the Californian in you lol)
Edit: @Figure: 7w6 or 6w5. you're too strategic to be 7w8 (who are not nearly as strategic as you make them out to be), subtly conflict avoidant and not present enough in your body. I'm sure you're fairly assertive like a 7, but there is a sort of animalistic quality (either subtle or not so subtle) in 7w8 that I don't see in you.

@Swordsman of Mana 2w1? XD Put down the crack pipe, babe. :laughing: :D


@KINGoftheAMAZONS Principles over security for you, any day. Sure, you do a military grade lock down of your house every night and worry yourself sick over the well-being of people you love. It doesn't, however, make you a 6. ;) Come back, and we'll talk more.

@Marlowe I have seen some posts where what you said was fairly 6ish. It may also be SP first in places. So, I could see a 6w5 fix for you perhaps. Core 6 is not impossible. I just don't currently see it. Do you want to talk about the arguments you have in mind for core 6? I still have the conversation where we talked about the possibility for 3. If you like, I could fwd it to you. It might give you some perspective.

@Figure I think you might be a core superego, possibly a 6w5. I don't see the 7w8. I could probably quote specific posts to show what I am talking about. You have emphasized your pessimism in quite a few posts, and I know SP 7s are hardcore realists but dwelling on the negative or being pessimistic goes against the core of what 7 is all about. Unhealthy 7s can be critical, frustrated, demanding and so on, but they're not basically pessimistic. The optimism bias is one of the 7's basic defense mechanisms and trait structure components. You definitely have a 1 fix, going by tritype theory. Quite a few of your posts on 7 actually describe 6 concerns.

The pessimism isn't the only reason I don't see core 7 for you at all. There's more, but I'd have to quote posts for you. My memory allows me to do this with ease, but I'll proceed only if you want to discuss this further.

You put tritype theory aside, and core ID makes less sense for you. I also think your heart fix might be 3w4. I don't see 4w3, if that's what you're going for. That and we'll have to strip away the fixes, because it seems to me that it's hindering you more than helping zone in on the core. You've typed at a few different types, so it may help to focus more on the core.

SOM, id say 3w4 for your heart fix. ;) SX dom suits you very well!
I thought so too for awhile, but my image lacks the fluidity of a 3 fixer. I look 3-ish because I'm ambitious, like to dress well and am somewhat classist, but, most of this is done for 4-ish reasons (for example, I wear suits to college where everyone is dressed like a bum or to a rock concert lol). 3s adapt their image to suit their environment and have no problem pulling the wool over people's eyes a bit, but dressing well for me is an expression of taste and "class". there is more of a neurosis of "is this really me?" and I'm always afraid of blending into the woodwork.
@Cosmic Orgasm, yeah, I edited that out. it was a dumb shot in the dark :laughing:
