    @Cerridwen

    Did I find correlations in Jane Austenís characters? Yes, I did. Or, as an android would say, ďAffirmative!Ē Iíve attempted to type all the main characters in her six novels, but for today, Iíll give you my rundown of her six protagonists:

    Catherine Morland is a type 4 individualist. Her story goal is to discover her identity as a heroine.

    Elinor Dashwood is a type 1 reformer. She desires to do what is right all the time.


    Elizabeth Bennet is a type 8 challenger. She doesnít appreciate losing control of any situation, least of all to Mr. Darcy.


    Emma Woodhouse is a type 3 achiever. She needs others to look up to her in order to feel worthwhile.


    Anne Elliot is a type 4 individualist. She attempts to be herself, despite her meddlesome family and friends.


    Fanny Price is a type 5 investigator because she feels capable through study. Doesnít she? Itís been a while since Iíve read Mansfield Park.

    Context - 8 is famous for projecting anger outwards when they are mad. 1's are famous for projecting anger inward, to make themselves better.

    9 sits between 8 and 1. They have every bit as much anger issues, but they bottle it up, and suppress it, and deny it. They HATE the anger inside, and deny it is there. This drives them to seek peace.

    A 9 does not withdraw when they are happy - they go out and become competent in their life.

    A 9 withdraws when they are upset. INFP 9's have been known to LITERALLY hide under their bed in their bedroom when they are REALLY upset. They really do NOT like conflict.

    A 6 doesn't prefer conflict, but if it shows up in their house, they fucking DEAL with it. Attack a 6 in their home, and they'll riip your throat out.

    Attack a 9 in their house, and they will try to deflect, and downplay the tension, and defuse the conflict almost to the point of being passive. Eventually they will explode, but when they do explode, they are not very effective.
    I can really really relate to that bold section. I've actually hidden in a cupboard in my bedroom once...

    The 9 description sounds too...like the the 9 is really good at hiding and suppressing emotions and just going about being all happy. When I'm under stress I have a really hard time suppressing my emotions...they tend to express themselves in negative ways, I react negatively to what people saying, reading meaning into their words that isn't there, thinking that I'm being attacked. I also get very tearful and have a really hard time controlling that!! Especially when I have to be professional at work!

    Aweeee, you do know me. lol. But it doesn't have to be in my home. Any injustice, a person I don't hate, an animal etc. I'm less likely to protect myself than I am someone else, but yes, coming at me in my home would be unwise since it's a safe spot. Come at me for no reason though and yes, I will defend. I will do anything I can to fuck you up and make sure I win/make you suffer. I will enjoy making you pay. If I have to retreat because you were stronger, I will be extra pissed, I will make sure I am more than prepared and come back for you, and then I will make you suffer in all the ways I can for far to long. Something about retribution.

    It's not easy to get that response out of me, but if you manage to convince me this is the right path, I'll not look back until it's done. I'll probably be okay with it.

    This reading meaning that isn't there (often assuming malign intent, even) when under stress thing is very INFP - I'm not sure it's necessary to take it as evidence of any enneagram.

    That's ok, and a point worth making is not everyone does that. I EXPLODE outwards when someone attacks me. I'm overly reactive. and for me, that is ok.

    What percentage of time do you think you are really that stressed? 10 percent? 3 percent? My point is normally you are pretty happy, and cheerful, and it takes little work. when you get a bit stressed, you deflect and deny your anger. When you get REALLY stressed, then you start to act like a wounded, cornered 6.

    6 sometimes gets confused with 8. one difference to tell them apart IMO is the 6 is more likely to "Defend" home, whatever "home" might be.
    An 8 is more likely to ATTACK someone who is causing an injustice without much regard to "where."

    A 9 would much prefer everyone just get along, and they do what they can to defuse everyone.

    I tend to do this a lot...

    If two individuals have had an argument / aren't talking to each other for some reason / or have misunderstood each other, I try to speak to each individual and then try to be the go between as a way of encouraging communication between the two people.

    Can type 9s be passive aggressive? Is this a characteristic of 9s?

    most types can be passive aggressive, depending..........

    I'd say in a 9 it "shows up" more than some just because a 9 is so rarely overtly aggressive.......
