    Amazing how people try to split atoms with criticality aimed at 2.4 year old posts made in jest.

    on an even deeper level than that, those fears are caused by a faulty perspective of reality that clouds one's view of reality.

    I know.

    So here's the part I'm wondering if you've been pondering on.

    Whose perspective of reality is the "gold standard" of "reality" in order to be considered correct and qualified enough to judge others' perspectives of reality as FAULTY?

    Is the "Enneagram Institute" the definitive authority on what "reality" is supposed to be for all people?

    This is the part where I get suspicious of theories and happily embrace my own thoughts and ways and rock the fuck on forward.

    that's why they're called deadly sins. we all struggle with them, and they mess all of us up.

    hey, aren't those e3 & e4's sins? haven't i said before i think you're 4/3 or 3/4?

    personally i struggle most with fear, gluttony, and deceit:
    my enneatype, wing, and disintegration point. go figure.

    I ran into an interesting thread the other day on Personality Cafe. Seems pretty accurate to me based on people I know.

    One way to type those around you is to examine their Enneagram talk style. Each type has a unique approach to speaking and writing, which can be picked up on in a matter of minutes. The following is a list of each type and their general mode of communication:

    TYPE 1: SERMONS/PREACH & TEACH
    Teaching, preaching, finding fault, admonishing, correcting, reminding of obligations
    Self-talk: ‘That’s not right’

    TYPE 2: SYMPATHIES/HELP & ADVICE/PRAISE & COMPLIMENTS
    Befriending, supporting, comforting, offering friendly advice, pitching in, meeting needs, getting personal
    Self-talk: ‘You need me’

    TYPE 3: SALES PITCHES/PROPAGANDA/SELF-PROMOTION
    Promoting, advertising, performing, exclaiming, motivational speeches, success stories
    Self-talk: ‘Watch me shine’

    TYPE 4: LAMENTS/SAD STORIES
    Longing, lamenting, extolling, yearning, regretful sighs, poetic turns of phrase, self-expression
    Self-talk: ‘I’m feeling …’

    TYPE 5: LECTURES/THESES/TREATISES
    Detailed explanations, informative displays of knowledge, definitions, facts, precise instructions, logical, rational arguments
    Self-talk: ‘I’m thinking …’

    TYPE 6: CAUTIONS/CAVEATS/SETTING LIMITS
    Questions, warnings, second-guessing, trouble-shooting, worst-case scenarios, defending / testing
    Self-talk: ‘But what if …’

    TYPE 7: ANECDOTES/BRAINSTORMING/STORYTELLING
    Joking, laughing, story-telling, entertaining, shifting gears, changing venues, sampling, imagining, checking out, moving on
    Self-talk: ‘On a lighter note’

    TYPE 8: COMMANDS/DIATRIBES/LAYING TRIPS
    Arguing, debating, opposing, taking aim, scoring points, parting shots, military metaphors
    Self-talk: ‘Do this my way’

    TYPE 9: CHRONICLES/SAGAS/EPICS
    Recounting sagas, epics, generalizing, day-dreaming aloud, voicing vague notions, wondering, meandering
    Self-talk: ‘Nice ’n easy’
