I know this has been discussed, but are there any fool-proof ways to figure out one's enneagram wing? Any precise ways to distinguish them?
    well nothing's foolproof but you should just read about type 4 and type 6 and see which one you relate to more.

    I took the provided instinctual variant test and got 1w9, but I'm kind of drunk so I don't know if that's right.

    Ones are often intelligent and independent and can easily mistake themselves for Fives, but unlike Fives, Ones are primarily people of action, not thought. Ones tend to worry and are prone to anxiety and can sometimes mistype as Sixes, but they are far less affiliative than Sixes and their standards are not reached by seeking consensus with a group. Finally, the relentless pursuit of perfection can take its toll and lead to depression. At such times, a One can mistype as a Four. But Fours have a tendency towards self-indulgence whereas Ones are self-denying. Fours are emotionally expressive; Ones are emotionally constrained.
    this sounds like it could be...

    Ones have a fine eye for detail. They are always aware of the flaws in themselves, others and the situations in which they find themselves. This triggers their need to improve, which can be beneficial for all concerned, but which can also prove to be burdensome to both the One and those who are on the receiving end of the One's reform efforts.

    The One's inability to achieve the perfection they desire feeds their feelings of guilt for having fallen short, and fuels their incipient anger against an imperfect world. Ones, however, tend to feel guilty about their anger. Anger is a "bad" emotion, and Ones strive sincerely and wholeheartedly to be "good." Anger is therefore vigorously repressed from consciousness, bursting forth in occasional fits of temper, but usually manifesting in one of its many less obvious permutations - impatience, frustration, annoyance and judgmental criticality. For this reason, Ones can be difficult to live with, but, on the high side, they tend to be loyal, responsible and capable partners and friends.
    this too, I'm really self-critical

    Fat chance for a One, between biographical admissions and your own behavior on the two forums. Described, sometimes personally, as aloof and casual, you correspond much more with a Five; though perhaps, now that I think about it, even a taciturn Four.

    A few months ago I browsed through an Enneagram book in the bookstore and *really* related to type 4. It spoke to me like mbti rarely has.

    If I have to pick a wing, I suppose it would be 4w5, since earlier in my life I was much more into analysis/theory stuff. I'm just not drawn to it anymore so doubt 4w5 is the best fit these days.

    I seem to most closely resemble a 4. 9 comes up a good amount too, but lately I'm thinking 4.

    If the 4 has a wing it's a very, very slight 4w3. But the numbers are usually even to either side (and often a dramtic drop-off from the 4 score) so I'm inclined to think I present as more a wingless 4.

    If my enneagram is in fact 9 it would be a fairly strong 9w1 based on the results when I test this way.

    Waaaah! I can't vote because it says I am a 4 with balanced wings!

    These results are even more lop-sided than the MBTI ones.
    Eighteen types and more than a third of the posters are only one of them...

    I feel pretty lonely again.

    If it makes you feel any better, there was another poll that showed the majority of people who come here were INxx types.
