I'll let @Paradigm go more in depth on this here, as she's generally pretty involved and knowledgeable when it comes to 5 typings. If she's willing of course.
    I'd rather not, every time I try to suggest another type with rationale is met with stupidly stubborn resistance. Especially those who see themselves as 45Xs. People have too much investment in the type(s) and/or how much it conforms with their self-image, even if they say otherwise.

    I genuinely don't know if this is going to be the case here, but the odds are it will be.

    Thank you for the compliment, though :)

    How can people help, without information?
    Perhaps OP is a Type 5, and understands this.
    Also the relative anonymity on the internet makes it easier for some people to 'open up' in this fashion, as there's no 'real' person judging them for it, etc.
    This right here. None of you know me and wouldn't be able to find out who I am, and yes, I'm giving personal information (which is uncomfortable, especially telling people I have a learning disability and was sent to special-ed because of it, even my husband doesn't know that information) so that others can help me find my type since some of you have been studying MBTI, Enneagrams and Tritypes for years.

    Have you considered 5w6?
    I'll read more about the 6 today. My husband is a 5w6, he's way more rule-orientated than I am (I don't care about rules), but I'll check it out.

    This right here hits home, this is the kind of thing (not this specifically, but I'm sure you understand what I mean) my wife doesn't know.
    There's like infinite amounts of this - I believe this is attributed to Type 5 - we keep all of this information to ourselves, for one reason or another - we essentially are knowledge gluttons and don't like sharing it.
    This includes personal information, as far as I'm aware.

    I am way less adept at Enneagram as others here, though, I don't want to lead you down the wrong path.

    While many Sixes (especially the 1 fixed) have a preoccupation with regulation and rules, I wouldn't make it such a core feature of the type. I'm an ENTP, I troll, ignore and break rules all the time. I do like to know the rules so I can be prepared to work around them and not get caught off guard, to gain a sense of certainty. But I certainly don't sweat over them like some good ISTJ kid. Some celebrities often typed at Six: Tupac, Eminem, George Carlin, Mark Wahlberg, Mike Tyson, Amy Lee, etc. All fairly spontaneous individuals that don't give off a prussian bureaucratic vibe.

    If you're gonna read about Six, I suggest these:

    THE NINE STYLES: Sixes – Tom Condon | Nine Points Magazine

    Especially Naranjo, who, while abstract and literary in style, is the biggest source of authority around concerning the Enneagram.

    Awww pretty please ?

    You don't have to bother further if it's fruitless, but a quick opinion would be helpful.

    There's not enough here to type, unless you like typing behaviors.

    Behaviorally it's all very 468, based on all the Reactivity described. Though, most of what she thinks is 4/5 is probably 2/3. I'd probably go with 368 of some variation, though 268 wouldn't be weird to me either.

    Okay so I'm not the only one seeing some 6 and attachment triad things here, good. I actually think 3w4 is probably more likely than 4 as the heart fix, but as you say, not enough info for solid conclusions.

    The whole sensitivity and ruminating over criticism from some nobody reminds me of a 6 friend of mine, who is generally very reactive and self conscious around competency matters. Hmmm.

    I don't mean to imply that @Gaiten is a core 2, but there's a lot here that indicates a 2-8 connection, and not necessarily a healthy connection. In no way is that, in itself, a good typing strategy, so nothing should really come from it, but it does show a bit more than one might think. I do think that 90% of the stuff she puts as 4 is not inherently 4, though. (Same goes for 5 - people forget 1 and 3 are also Competency types capable of being individualistic.) (Also, it should be noted that 2 has an integration to 4.)

    There's a lot of Power dynamics described, which makes me wonder if 268 might be the "best fit" tritype regardless of "Competency" feelings. I suppose 258 is possible - as I said, there's not a good base for typing here - but unless she's core 8 (such as 825) then it would be really hard to justify the huge amount of Reactivity. 825 isn't impossible, though: the core type always "overrides" the tritype in terms of coping mechanisms, so to speak.

    I'm not sure I see a lot of "attachment triad," but it feels like that's one everyone sees/defines differently so maybe I'm wrong. I'm basing my x68 guess largely off of the Reactivity triad and knowing that 6 isn't inherently "sheeple," which most people don't.
