    The problem with type theories in general (and Enneagram in particular) is that they are rooted in mysticism and tend to be rather strongly unscientific. Which is fine, so long as they have explanatory power (indeed as OrangeAppled mentioned earlier in the Enneagram wings thread, their mystical quality might be a bonus), but portions of them that place arbitrary limits on personality development (such as inability to change type, lower functions developing after a certain age only, etc.) are wholly discardable. There's no proof that a person's type cannot change.
