    How are wings even that descriptively useful?

    I personally find it much more descriptive to include the number 5 in my enneagram than 8 or 1 (I'm a 9). I just think of the wings as a way to sneak in a 2nd-best type. If you have only a finite number (two) slots to include information, why not include as much as possible?

    Also, the lines of integration make no sense.

    How AREN'T they useful?

    And integration makes perfect sense dude. I don't understand why it doesn't make sense to you. It just seems like you and Magic P purposefully try not to understand how the system works.

    I mean really. It all makes complete sense to me, and pretty much everyone that pursues enneagram. Your "system" doesn't help people grow at all like the original enneagram.

    Okay. It does make sense, it just has no justification.

    How does "the original enneagram" "help people grow?"

    You can take on the traits of the type you integrate into consciously. And integration is what helps you grow/makes you a more balanced person.

    My top 3 scores are 8,1,5.
    If someone wants to know me, they would know more by thinking 8,1,5 than 8w9 or 8w7.
