    Default Simplifying the Enneagram

    So why not just use three types that describe you best, from the most to the least out of the three you choose? SP SO and SX are still in play as well.

    So for me I would be a 5>9>8 sx/sp/so. Simple as that.

    Why must it be so complicated? It's great as is for subtyping, and I don't see a problem with using it like this.

    More complicated = more better.

    Didn't you get the memo?

    Didn't Magic Poriferan and Evan propose this some time ago? I can't be sure as I don't have any real interest in Enneagram.

    Their system was way complicated and just basically totally redid it, all I'm concerned about is the types and describing yourself. No restrictions should be put in when describing yourself.

    our system really isn't that complicated.

    Lol I had to have someone explain how to get my type out of your system. I didn't really see anything to indicate the order with the numbers themselves... At least not past the main type. That was my issue.

    But whatever. Just a thought, look forward to more thoughts.

    Also it's cool to see someone else of this type.

    You know, I just did the enneagram thing and I really find it kind of confusing. The wing thing is especially odd and it sort of strikes me that if it could be that you're anyone of the three top results, there's some serious slipperiness going on. I also don't really get the SP, SO, SX business.

    Read and learn young padawan:

    Instincts should be fairly easy to figure out. At least for me it was.
