    Default Your basic motivation

    I thought about Enneagrams the other day, about what their core motivations were and what the wing implies, in a nutshell. Most of it I'm not sure of, but this is what I came up with.

    1w9: I want to do the right thing, and I want my relationships to be right.
    1w2: I want to do the right thing, so I'll try to help people the right way.
    2w1: I want to help people because it's just the right thing to do.
    2w3: I want to help people and be admired for it.
    3w2: I want to help people through my good success.
    3w4: I want to be successful for who I am.
    4w3: I want to know who I am and improve who I am.
    4w5: I want to learn as much as possible about who I am.
    5w4: The more I learn, the more my life seems insignificant.
    5w6: The more I learn, the more I see a conspiracy.
    6w5: I need to learn as much as possible in order to protect myself.
    6w7: I need security above all, but I secretly long for adventure.
    7w6: I'm anxious for a good adventure! Anxious.
    7w8: Let's have one huge badass party!
    8w7: I'm a badass and I don't care who knows it!
    8w9: Obey me and everything will be fine.
    9w8: Let's keep everything peaceful, but don't piss me off.
    9w1: I will do everything within my principles to keep my relationships peaceful.

    Feel free to edit whatever's wrong. Sorry if it offends anyone. Just trying to broaden my understanding.

    The 5w4 does seem quite accurate... Hmm

    Well I don't really know what wing I am. I oscillate between 4 and 6. If I had to pick a phrase, I'd pick "The more I learn, the more I am fulfilled? The more I am at ease?"

    I'd relate to 5w4 if it said "significant" instead of "insignificant."

    I'm pretty new with Enneagram, so I pretty much pulled the stuff about 1s, 2s, 3s and 6s out of my-
