    Default Wing? And "I must be [x] to be happy"?

    In another thread Halla posted this link as a decent enneagram test, and, as a way to relax after work, I just took it

    Perhaps someone(s) could help me with two questions about the results.

    Here are my results.

    Type 1 Perfectionism |||||||||||||| 54%
    Type 2 Helpfulness |||||||||||||||||||| 82%
    Type 3 Image Focus |||||||||| 34%
    Type 4 Hypersensitivity || 10%
    Type 5 Detachment |||||||||||| 46%
    Type 6 Anxiety |||||||||| 38%
    Type 7 Adventurousness |||||||||||||||| 66%
    Type 8 Aggressiveness |||||||||||| 46%
    Type 9 Calmness |||||||||||||||||||| 90%

    type score type behavior motivation
    9 22 I must maintain a peaceful and easygoing environment to be happy.
    2 20 I must be helpful and caring to be happy.
    7 16 I must be high and entertained to be happy.
    1 13 I must be perfect and good to be happy.
    5 11 I must be knowledgeable and independent to be happy.
    8 11 I must be strong and in control to be happy.
    6 9 I must be secure and safe to be happy.
    3 8 I must be impressive and attractive to be happy.
    4 2 I must be true to my emotions to be happy.

    Your main type is Type 9

    Your variant is social
    (so, then sx, and lowest on sp)


    Question 1: Is there a strong enough wing here to be able to say which one it is?

    Question 2: Why do the results all say "I must be [x]to be happy" except 9?

    Yeah, that's what I mean. All the other eight say that "I must be something" and nine says "I must do something."

    I moved the types around for convenience.

    Type 9 Calmness |||||||||||||||||||| 90%
    Type 2 Helpfulness |||||||||||||||||||| 82%
    Type 7 Adventurousness |||||||||||||||| 66%
    Type 1 Perfectionism |||||||||||||| 54%
    Type 8 Aggressiveness |||||||||||| 46%=Type 5 Detachment |||||||||||| 46%
    Type 6 Anxiety |||||||||| 38%
    Type 3 Image Focus |||||||||| 34%
    Type 4 Hypersensitivity || 10%

    Question 1: Lets look at your top three types. This would be 9, 2 and 7.

    Your type and your wings are generally around the top 3 types + the higher of the two wings that go with it (but it could possibly be lower.)

    It might generally say something like this you are most likely (on a sliding scale) have a type that is:
    9w1
    9w8
    2w1
    7w8
    etc.

    Question 2: Don't need to worry why that is, though you might want to read the description of 9.

    I suppose that is part of the theory that nines merge with their environment. So, you become a part of it and don't see a split. Maybe...

    It's just an inconsistent phrasing, and it could easily say something like "I must be in a peaceful and happy environment to be happy."


    I mean, "maintain" is an action, too.

    Yes, perhaps.

    Or perhaps what Wolfy said, merging with environment. It seems to me that "calmness" could come from something other than a need/drive to be something. It could come from generally being okay with 'whatever'.

    Thanks for all of the above.

    I saw a long description in a post by Black Cat. Will go read.

    I give up. 9w8? Who knows.

    I'll just leave it at: 9w27.
