    Default Balanced wings?

    Do they exist?

    Is it possible to fail to really have a wing at all; to relate to a type but neither of its neighbours?

    If you think you relate equally strongly to both adjacent types - or if the degree to which you relate to the types depends on the particular description you're reading - what does this mean?

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    BlackCat and I once had an interesting discussion on that. We concluded that, most likely, balanced wings are wings that each don't greatly influence type. If you were a 5 that, for example, felt very few pulls from the 6 or 4 sides, it's probable you could be balanced wings because neither outshines the other. So having balanced wings isn't exactly a "highly developed" enneagram type, but rather an indecisive one.

    In fact, I'm a 5 who feels quite a strong pull to both 4 and 6.

    Still indecisive, though. :confused:

    Now you've got the gears in my mind going. I want to look this up and come back to you, haha.

    Also, what do people make of the 'classical test' here? - Eclectic Energies Enneagram Tests (free)

    Is it mostly accurate?
