I thought I could have been a Social Nine because I can be friendly, personable and engaging. I am a 9w1.
(I am confirming that 9w1 is really my type as stated in my profile.)
I have been told that I am a "Nester". I have always enjoyed a lot of alone time. I have been that way for most of my life. I like the peacefulness of being alone and the freedom to allow my creative imagination to flow through me to where I will sing, dance, write, draw, watch videos, nap, read and do whatever I feel like doing in the peacefulness of my own space. I get more energy when I am alone and enjoying the freedom to express my creativity in peace.
They don't describe SPs to be friendly, personable and engaging people, which is how they describe Social Nines. I personally think Social types care too much about what people think. I think we just need to be true to our own authenticity and individuality. We can keep the peace by being who we are as Nines without sacrificing our own sense of peace and happiness. Is Self Preservationist the only type that likes to be alone a lot? Or needs to be alone a lot?
