    The so/sx description makes me feel all robotic.. only ever going through the motions. Gah.

    Can stackings work like that?
    I'm pretty sure that there is supposed to be an order, but it's definitely supposed to be more clear cut for some than others. Some people may be overly dependent or lacking on one stacking, and some people may be more balanced.

    Also, remember that descriptions are just descriptions. It gives a good idea of where to start. (:

    Uh oh, maybe I have traded in my 7w6 for a 9!!! D'oh, I don't want to the "the nice guy"!!! :p

    You mention "going through the motions" and I specifically mention that I fear that I am doing that in my video at ~2:10!!! Nooo, since you said it and I said it it *must* mean that I'm not that edgy cool hip trend setter 7w6 that I thought I was!!! What shall I do?! Perhaps I should emulate the one that I know IRL! ;p

    So how does one get past that feeling of "an essential nothingness at the core of existence, even of their own 'identity'"??? Or is it okay for me to just accept that as a valid way to feel even if other people don't feel similarly? I don't expect I'd get many dates on OkC if I post, "i don't really care one way or the other too much because in the end it doesn't really matter now does it so let's just go share some cookies and milk"...

    *sigh*

    Ayyy nothing wrong with that! But you seem more like an especially chill 7, anyway. :P

    And hah, I think it's a pretty common fear, at least for anyone in this enneagram group. Emulating the the edgy cool hip dude should be a perfect solution, though! XD Can't see anything wrong with that. Side note: your video was great and full of funny rambling. I especially related to 1:20 - 1:44. Slash the whole thing.

    As for the "essential nothingness blah blah blah", my are you fancy with your wording - I've decided to just accept and mostly ignore that for now. It makes life easier on the whole, although I'd be lying if I didn't admit it bothers me a lot for very brief moments. But, that's how I cycle. Until the being fine/avoidant-prone 99% of the time and having private whineyfests the other 1% of the time stops working, I'm rolling with it. What works for you (or me in a few years, even) may be something entirely different.

    And pfft, girls love existential cookie and milk dates. That's how I'm rollin' in 'em.

    Tests don't always yield an accurate type. If the particular test you took gave you a list of the types from the type you scored highest on to lowest, I'd use that as a rubric - start by reading various pieces on type 9, and then the next few types in the list and so on. Acquaint yourself with each type and it will become easier to tell which ones you relate to and which you don't... narrowing down the list. You can simply google ennagram types or look around on the forums here for links. Point being that studying each type is the best way to determine the right type, don't take a test's word for it.

    You might also try posting a thread in this forum. If you answer some questionnaires, some of the people on the forum might be able to help you with determining your correct type.


    ...Since everyone has a sexual, social and self-preserving instinct, we all have each "instinctual variant" in our type, It's the order that matters. So yes, it's normal for everyone to have all three. When a person says "I'm sp", what they really mean is that sp is the first in their stacking of the three, not that they are only sp and not sx or so at all.

    Most "stacking" descriptions involve the first two variants - see here for more info. So for you, sp is first, then sx - thus your type is most likely sp/sx (though again, taking a test's word for it isn't as good as deciding for yourself after some study). I hope that makes sense/is helpful. Good luck!

    PS - Nice av. I myself enjoy Joy Division.

    I like this description of sx/sp better. This one seems to really describe someone who has not yet come to understand their battles in life. It's nice to think of sx/sps as the lonely cowboys of the enneagram. :)
    Type Stackings - the enneagram ...info from the underground

    The page for 9 specific stackings also has some nice advice. I found the tips for sp/sx 9s extremely helpful to me personally, but as with all descriptions of type, things are spotty and what works for one... you know. :P

    As the 9w1 sx/sp description claims, sloth, of all things, can be my biggest hurdle. I am indeed my own worst enemy. This alluring sloth seems to the most gripping when I’ve had a pause or break in momentum. For example, after a holiday break or 3-day weekend it seems to take enormous energy and willpower to take those first steps (difficult or not) toward jumping back into the ratrace, or the To-Do list, or the paperwork... With momentum, I can autopilot my way through with a smile on my face. Without it, the same tasks are grueling.


    I also find it rather inconvenient that when my motivation does decide to kick in, it urges me toward impractical things such as sporadic cross-country relocations and spiky haircuts and the hunt for the perfect, perfect birthday gift. If only I cared about functional things like laundry, income, and bearing children...

    I also fall under 9w1 sp/sx.. and I too had the same bewilderment upon hearing those scientific words "Introverted Sensation".. it's confusing to say the least. What isn't so confusing are the descriptions further down:

    They are the eyes and fingers of the universe examining itself.
    view the world as a playground where they can move beyond the biases of their own ego by learning about the world around them.
    engagement isn't exactly necessary but rather they have an extrasensory decoder for the subconscious...
    They aren't burdened by social obligations, so their inner aesthetic is a daily source of nourishment. Their internal repose slows things down so they can get a better look and feel for the world around them....they see the textures that others miss and can articulate the texture in a way that taps into the electrical charge of reality.
    they believe that words and language are imperfect and childish tools to communicate these truths and epiphanies. They feel truth can only be hinted at through aesthetics such as art or film or music. They are drawn to and fascinated by the language of the unspoken and believe this is where all the intentions of life spring.... attune themselves to the subconscious realm (under the spoken word) where it is impossible for people to hide their inner being....
    They are more interested in the elemental forces that move events rather than the event itself.
    I'm curious, if you were out walking in a park, surrounded by all the incredible beauty ~ do you see, i mean feel things differently than others? Do you pick up on things beyond "things"? Are you motivated, or rather inspired by unity, rather than duality? Perhaps that's what describes my mood best, finding unity within the illusory world of duality.

    I don't know... everyone experiences everything differently. When it comes to social events though, I do feel like I have insight/awareness of the things going on, if simply because I can step outside of the action and quietly, detachedly observe. I do usually pick up on things beyond the visible, tangible, here-and-now things. There are two different things I pay attention to, one is the flow of events, the timing of things, and noticing when parts of conversations start, stop, change direction, get missed, get misunderstood. The other is an awareness of the inner state of the people involved, like anxiousness, or excitement, or being relaxed, or what they are trying to achieve, ect.

    I'm not actually focused on unity vs duality, which is more of an INFP focus, but I do sometimes see how people are trying to interact and either come closer to, or move away from, other people.

    Most of the time these thoughts are pretty concious to me, but most people are uncomfortable with a meta-awareness of their social interactions, so I don't talk about it. I also don't usually use my awareness to know when to act or have an influence on the group, but I am more comfortable with using my insight in one-on-one interactions.

    After about 6 months of... 'investigation' I have settled with sx/sp...
    I was sure at first I was sp/so. Then so/sx... then went back to sp/so. For some reason I don't feel like a sexual type- but I guess I just was not able to comprehend what it really means, same with social.
    I analyzed myself and my actions and my past. I do try and fit in with groups in the off chance that I am in a group setting, but that's natural for a 9. I have never really tried to nourish my connections with people, either I am indifferent to their interests or I think I'll be a burden.
    Anyway, I read this article: the16types.info/vbulletin/content.php/133-Instinctual-Stackings

    Really helped me understand better. Sx/sp is the perfect description that sums up everything and ties up all of those loose ends. Trying to be independent to an impossible extent, never asking for help and being indifferent and distant from my friends and family, often giving them the impression that I don't want anything to do with them... Bleh.
    Also the whole thing about self preservation needs being neglected sometimes when there is adventure in the air, lol.

    The description of SO in the blind spot is highly accurate.
    And so is the whole staccato approach described in this thread haha. I don't mean to, I just tend to disconnect.
