    How susceptible is Enneagram to mood?

    I test reliably as an INTP, the I and P are the more flexible scores. I am definitely an NT.

    With respect to the Enneagram, the stacking is accurate but the Typing is highly inconsistent.

    I assume I am a 5w4, I also test as 9w1... and frequently a 6...and a 2... there are certainly times I am a 7... I have all of these qualities, (positive and negative) except 8.

    Questions five or ten years ago, I had a definitive answer to, are today in direct opposition of what I would have said for the first 35 years of my life....and frequently have the issue that none of the options suit me or are "more true."

    (Answering the diagnostic as I am now and as I was then... just yield opposite personalities. Yes I have even spent time as a 3.)

    SO, do you find the Enneagram is predicated on mood? On health? Maybe its just one of those boxes I don't fit in? Why need one of these traits be stronger than another?

    Thanks for any feedback!

    For the record, I believe this belongs in the Enneagram subforum.

    Throughout our lives, we develop various coping mechanisms to deal with adversity. I have typed as 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, and 9, with the remaining types potentially taking spots in my tritype; however, when I view my life as a whole, I see 6's "core fear" underlying everything. The other types flit in and out of vision depending on circumstance—for example, I have been sharing a house with five other people for over a year, and in order to maintain stability in this situation, I've learned to behave like a 9. I have even developed some 9-like values. However, my motives are based on 6's fear of not having a safety net.

    In short: I believe one's answers to an Enneagram test might change depending on their circumstances or mood, but their type will not change. One's fears and motivations follow a common thread throughout their life.

    So if I understand that correctly, you've chosen a type to be inspired by and one to insulate against your weakness?

    Perhaps I just don't understand much about how the Enneagram works.

    Ah, I've had a series of encounters that expanded fear completely destroyed motivation.
