MOTM January 2013
Go on, type meh 7w8/8w7/3w4 SX/SX/SX You know ya wanna! :blushed:
Yeah, I remember you mentioning this some time back as did Kalei. Don't think im perhaps as disconnected as SP/SO, just selective about which connections to develop. Soc seems so relate-able though, I considered it as a dom instinct but the only other that conflicts with that is SP. *bah and seriously ponders SP/SX as stack* Mmm...you've always struck me as Sp/Sx for some reason
I agree with 4w3 fix.*consent given*
You seem very, very SP to me - is that correct? Also I would posit Sp/So. I have no idea how you type instinct wise.I'll volunteer. I've been considering a core of six over my current type three.
7w8-3w4-8wX. I understand the cases for 1, and your line to 1 is there but.. I have to say, considering I've only met one other person in my life who I think makes a good candidate for triple-id, and that's my father, and you remind me of him in very beautiful ways <3 <3 my heart says 8.
I can't explain why, but you definitely strike me as a 6. I don't know you well enough to make any more comments, but I will let you know if I notice anythingI wanna join the fun!
5w6 or 6w5 are the only types I could see for your core.I'll give my consent.
You strike me as a 1w1. A shining and dazzling 1w1 at that.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
You seem very, very, very 6ish to me, but that might be the Fe/Ti cognition?? I have a hard time even reconsidering your core type O.Oi'm in. :wink:
edit: originally typed at 8--thinking i could be a 3--or maybe a very unhealthy/in-a-state-of-growth 9... would even consider 2.
"I dare you now." What a CP-6If anyone's been wanting to call me out on a mistype, I dare you now.
I haven't stopped puzzling over your type and I really don't know. I do see 6, but I don't know if that's because it's stuck in my head from always seeing you typed as 6. What is your MBTI/JCF/Socionics? I will still let you know when/if I come up with any observations. 6 feels right though, or my brain is stuck on it. One or the other.And alternative suggestions welcome! :kitteh:
You are difficult. But the best I can come up with is that 6w7 doesn't feel *wrong.* As you know I am still mulling this one over, but I don't know >.>And I wouldn't mind anyone commenting on my type. >_>
*crosses arms*it's a bit embarrassing that you noticed, cuz I fucking hate that side of me (I'm sure the 6 wing doesn't make it any better.
The only types I could see for you are 8w9, 8w7, 7w8, or 3wX. You are definitely an Id type. I haven't seen real strong reason to reconsider 8w9 though.Bring it!
Thank you for the feedback. Means a lot coming from you. Even though you settled for 4 you still know 8s inside out!The only types I could see for you are 8w9, 8w7, 7w8, or 3wX. You are definitely an Id type. I haven't seen real strong reason to reconsider 8w9 though.
Sometimes a 3 comes off very strong like an 8 but then when you dig down it's a 3. I think it's unlikely though. I was just saying that by process of elimination, I would not eliminate it with certainty. I could eliminate any other type outside the ones I mentioned, with relative certainty.Thank you for the feedback. Means a lot coming from you. Even though you settled for 4 you still know 8s inside out!
The first three types are the only ones i have ever considered. I am surprised to see you suggest 3 as a core though. Care to elaborate why?
Still think you're a 2.And if you're wondering, if you think I'm mistyped just tell me.
Nah, I think 3w4 is a better fit than 6.I'll volunteer. I've been considering a core of six over my current type three.
Agreed with the 6w5 observations :\If anyone's been wanting to call me out on a mistype, I dare you now.
I still see you as core id, not core 4. I'd say 3 or 7 over 8, though.People can call me out too if they want,
Oh. Um... 9w1-2w1-5w6, so/sp.
What else does it explain? :blushed:Oh. Um... 9w1-2w1-5w6, so/sp.
Fine. I actually am coming around to you being 7w8, as it would explain a lot (line to 1, for example). But you definitely have that 3 fix. So... 7w8-3w4-8w9, sp/sx... Which I'm pretty sure you knew, anyway :tongue:
All I can say is that if you met me in real life, you would never accuse me of being a 9. It's true that I have mellowed over the years, but that was mostly despite myself. I still have a great deal of frustration/longing, but I don't express it much because I'm not convinced that most people around me (including family) will really "get it." Also because when I have expressed it, it almost always results in hurt feelings (usually on my end), which I don't have time for anymore.@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.
Why reactive and why 3 fixed?
Already read it. If I went by Naranjo, the only type I could be is 5.Read Naranjo's 2.
Why would you call a typing suggestion an 'accusation'? :laughing:All I can say is that if you met me in real life, you would never accuse me of being a 9.

Rest assured, I am not one of these people. I know plenty of people who've changed type multiple times that I haven't suggested 6 to.Why reactive and why 3 fixed?
I think a lot of people see me as a 6 mainly because I'm uncertain of my type and keep changing it. But honestly, I have never been particularly prone to doubt and uncertainty before I got into the enneagram.
- that wasn't just about the EnneagramI'm frequently anxious and uncertain, and I look for facts and information to resolve my uncertainty. If I can't resolve my uncertainty, I'll usually choose a safer alternative.
I get stressed out and frustrated easily, and when this happens I often feel the need to vent. But I usually keep my feelings to myself instead because I'm afraid venting will just make me look bad and people will think I'm overreacting. Which I know I am.
I also struggle with doubt and uncertainty about whether I should voice my thoughts because I know they can change quickly. Sometimes it seems like as soon as I say what I think, I don't think that anymore, and this can cause great inner turmoil and the feeling that I'm contradicting myself. I'm also very risk-averse in general
- you don't get more 6 than that -- knowing the peace won't last contradicts core positive outlook outright-and I'm afraid of something going wrong or getting in trouble because I did something I wasn't supposed to do. I have a hard time relaxing and enjoying the present when I know the peace won't last.
You might benefit from reading @Julia Bell's last questionnaire. She, in fact, she was very "trusting". And, she's a 6w7. A lot of 6w7s have the positive influence from 7, so they overestimate how trusting they really are when in fact they're very observant and watchful. Reactivity is about keying in to what's beyond the facade, the surface, as a habit. That's where 6 mistrust comes from, knowing there's more than what meets the eye.I don't seem to have any issues with trust, suspicion, or paranoia. I don't fear being alone or abandoned.
The danger shit is HUGELY exaggerated in 6 descriptions. Throw that out to the birds. You said you were risk-averse, and you have to be aware of shit going wrong or have a natural tendency to look to the possibility of things going wrong to be risk-averse.I see risks and decisions that could potentially lead to regret (like "I wish I hadn't posted that" kind of regret), but I rarely see "danger". I'm also not at all prone to projection.
Naranjo talks about this propensity for forlornness in 6s. A lot of people associate that with 4 and 9. That insult to my face and hatred thing could also be superego as it was in Julia Bell's case. You may not consider it OK to hate people back. There are 9s who hate some people, so it's not like 9 is the all-accepting in all cases type of the Enneagram.You could insult me and say you hate me to my face and I would probably be a bit sad, but I wouldn't be able to hate you back. I don't seem to be capable of hating people. I'm also very indecisive about a lot of things. And I can be very caring and empathetic, but I can also be very uncaring and apathetic.
What's your reasoning for core 2?Already read it. If I went by Naranjo, the only type I could be is 5.
Yeah, if anything does come up, plz do share :kitteh:, id be interested in your side of things. I try not to get too attached to specific types unless im really convinced but yeah, id be interesting to hear your perspective. I did a socionics questionnaire some time back and another one before that which is buried too far, haha! The first was an IEI(INFp) response and another was EII(INFj) so it's probably one of those. I type INFP aswell. Thanks again!I haven't stopped puzzling over your type and I really don't know. I do see 6, but I don't know if that's because it's stuck in my head from always seeing you typed as 6. What is your MBTI/JCF/Socionics? I will still let you know when/if I come up with any observations. 6 feels right though, or my brain is stuck on it. One or the other.
- Your patronization when bothered has much more of a "narcissistic" tone than a "competency" tone.What else does it explain? :blushed:
