I do have relationships with people on a level of sheer love of smartarsery. They might not be sexual but it's something you know when you know. Drunk Parrot called it out....we love to make fun of each other to see what we can get away with....so many times I've gone to fuck him up and thought it would not be right because of the power I have as admin...not fair. I just want to keep trolling the hell out of him though. He knows it too.
OK so I have read a little about the tritype variations of 592.
592 doesn't fit the core of who I am. It seems more kind of passive and inner wordly. I roll my eyes at anyone talking spiritual matters and talking about the creation of Earth in as much as I really don't care but if you do, well that's fine but don't drag me in and especially don't try to indoctrinate my kid (I have lost my shit over that type of thing). I could live with 593 because of the idea that I might get stuff done and I can see the two in parts of my parenting but I'm far more aggressive IRL standing up to people than having time to think online. My neighbour comes to the door and asks me for coffee....I say no and close the door. My last neighbour before her, I got her kicked out because my place was robbed (probably by her).
I don't consider myself a passive person. I am restrained, tempered and a reformed bad girl who used to beat up people. I don't do that now because it's silly. I have found better ways to navigate my way around.
Taken from page 1.People in the past (when I have flourished) have described me as indomitable, a firebrand, emotionally stable, empathetic, kind, inscrutable, an enigma, an intimidating person. I have met people who have later said I thought you were scary when I first met you but now I see you as very kind. My daughter uses meeting me as a litmus test for her friends. If they aren't scared of me then they are worth keeping and if they are scared of me they have something to hide. It's actually proven accurate for her.
I'm not really that protective of myself. I have layers that have been learned from past folly. Don't be vulnerable to people is more where I'm coming from. I have bent over backwards for people and I've self neglected (that part of 9 fits well) but it's more of a by product of untenable situations rather than some willing act of sacrifice.
I don't "believe in" tri type. Your core is your core. Your disintegration is your disintegration. Your integration direction is NOT the easiest one from the last triad.
I'm 8. 5 is obvious. 3 is next most obvious. I'm GOOD at all the 3 shit. When I'm on a roll, folks RESPECT me.
2 is harder. But 2 is my direction of growth.
I gave her coffee the first time as she just moved in. She knocks and knocks and knocks for the first few times after that calling out Beverly Beverly Beverly..... I ended up swinging the door open and saying my name is Beth but if you want to make it longer my name is Elizabeth then I told her not to knock on the door so much because if I am going to answer it I will and if I don't I don't. Her knocking was driving me absolutely crazy before that. I'd just go and sit out the back until she gave up.
My other neighbour who is awesome had polio, had something like 150 or so operations and we crack jokes at each other about his wonky walk. He has a dog called Dick who I babysit on occasion. I always say when he is leaving, don't worry I'll look after your Dick for you. He's nicer to the neighbour I grunt at, he's probably a 5. He thinks it's hilarious how she'll ask me how I'm going and I walk straight past her without saying a thing.
