    I think my head type could be 5w4 though.
    like all that in your signature makes so much sense... lol.. doubt that adding fourtype would make a big difference. :yim_rolling_on_the_ haha JK

Maybe I really ought to give it a fresh new look, but to me I find it about as useful as knowing a person's favorite color - it's not telling you a whole lot.
    I've found the wings and the variants more helpful.
    Also, the directions of integration and disintegration are helpful.

    The problem to me is that Ennegram is just a collection of nine archetypes without any clear-cut reason of why those archetypes were chosen. There is no reason to think they are comprehensive or exclusive. So if you happen to fit squarely into one of those archetypes, great -- some of the theory might be personally helpful to you. But if you don't? Then there's not much to get out of it.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Sixes who are more counterphobic are much more likely to question, or even rebel against authorities. They are quicker to confront others and are more prone to suspiciousness than phobic Sixes. They are more determined to be independent and resist turning to others for support. In this respect, counterphobic Sixes can resemble Eights. They try to repress their anxiety through action, and in the average Levels, can react strongly and defensively if questioned. They want to know where others stand and may aggressively provoke a response from them to find out. Counterphobic Sixes are fearful that others will try to trick them or take advantage of them. When conflicts arise, they can be highly confrontational and even belligerent. Nevertheless, beneath their bluster, they are just as fearful and anxious as phobic Sixes, but their actions are a reaction to the anxiety rather than a direct expression of it.

    With enneagram I've found people generally either resinate with the traditional type and wing theory, or they resinate with the tri-type theory. Have you ever looked into tri-type?

    For example.. Fe-Ni correlate to Type 6.. so why are INFJs only listed as 4s?
    ENFJ as well ..
    I am positive ALL MBTI types can correlate to Type 6. INTJ can also be Type 6's not just type 5 five. etc etc
    I don't know.. come on Aleski.. It just feels very amateur and subjective.

    Which is why I am asking where he found it.

    I think those are just the top four correlations. And, I think almost all INFJs who identify as typed 4 are mistyped as INFJ -- most likely they are emotionally charged INTJs (especially considering how suspiciously absent the INTJ 4 correlation is from statistical analyses).

    I don't pay much attention to it. Most statistical type analyses are fucked-up in some way or another.
