    -Self-pres/Sexual


    This subtype, like the self-pres/social, is more typical of the depictions of type Five. The self-preservational instinct accentuates the self-contained, withdrawing tendencies of the Five. Fives of this subtype love their time alone with a passion, and pursue it more actively even than the other subtype of self-pres Five, although with the sexual instinct second, they often want to find time for intimates as well. On the down side, they have more disdain for people and little use for the social aspects of life. They want to be left alone or they want to share their inner world with their intimates. The intensity of the sexual instinct is reserved for their intimates and even there it is sporadic. The self-pres energy gives this subtype a solid foundation and some degree of practicality.

    These Fives are conflicted when it comes to experiencing and expressing emotions. They usually default to emotional repression and to detached intellectual analysis. This is a dynamic common to all Fives, but with the self-pres/sexual instinctual stacking, the balance of these forces is pretty precarious and it seems as though the scales are being constantly adjusted one way or another. As the social instinct is the least developed, the social arena gets the drier more intellectual approach almost by default.-
    Mmm, yeah, I relate to that description, but also to the sx/sp one just as much. It seems like the main difference between them is the intensity of the individual and the level of importance placed on intimate relationships.

    I got my tears from the rain.
    I learned to dance when I saw a tiger prance,
    And a peacock taught me to be vain.
    A little owl in a tree so high,
    He taught me how to wink my eye.
    I learned to bill and coo from a turtledove,
    And a grizzly bear taught me how to hug.
    But the guy that lived two caves from me,
    He taught me how to love.

    ISTP correlates better with 5 than with 7 or 9.

    The dominance of an instinct is not a permanent feature of personality. When a new relationship arises (or even when in the process of wooing a new romantic interest) the Sx instinct can come to the foreground.

    I thought as much. Well, everything is still new. I may yet calm down. We'll see.

    I just read the 5 description and it sounds fairly familiar... so maybe i am a five after all. it was my second highest score on the test.... but on the other hand i am massively laid back and love to avoid conflict.

    Can't really decide. I don't feel like either describe me as well as ISTP

    This chart I just found looks accurate, except for the type 1 ISTP which is questionable to me. INFJ as a type 9 also looks out of place.

    ^I'm glad that chart flagged up INFJ as a likely type for 6. I think some people find it a really weird choice.

    I doubt that as many INFJs are 4s as claim to be - there also seem to be a fair few INFJ 5s and I wonder about that a bit too. Not that I am doubting anyone's type in particular on this forum, just I am fairly sure there are more INFJ 6s out there than are identifying themselves as such.

    I seriously thought I was a 9 for some time and still wonder sometimes. It's supposed to be the 6 point of integration and I certainly relate more to 9 than to any other e-type than 6. Even more than 4, which at first I assumed I was supposed to be but soon realised I wasn't.

    Externally I probably come across more as a 9 a lot of the time - very calm (which belies an often churning interior, or at least a lot of back chatter in my head.)

    I know at least one INFJ 9 and I am pretty sure she's typed herself correctly with both. Not sure how common it is though.

    Don't worry, I'll still be a nympho sp.

    As far as e 9 goes, that's my second highest result, close behind 5. I think it's really easy to relate to 9, especially for IPs. I am also very laid back and will generally avoid conflict. It's like 9 fills the small spaces that 5 doesn't. That's why I like the concept of the tritype.

    I'm a walking contradiction as an ENTP enneagram 9, sx/so/sp.

    If you can call them wings, they are 7 and 2.
