    Default Your Tritype

    Only got into enneagram lately and now I hear you can have a tritype?! Confusing, but exciting too.

    http://www.enneagram.net/tritype.html

    I think I'm a 479. The 4 and the 7 is solid, dunno about the last. Are there any tests for tritypes? Anyone with more experience in this thing care to share?

    edit: Scratch that, make it a 471. I think what resembles 9ness for me (being nice, loyal, etc.) is just a branch off 1. I definitely can't just stay calm and walk away like so many 9's can.

    You're talking about those lines on the grid, the types that I supposedly relate to right? I don't think it works that way with tritypes. It's there in the first video in the link. Or are you talking about something else?

    edit: Oh I get it now, naaa that's something different. The idea of a tritype is that you have a dominant type in each triad (head, heart and gut). So I think as a 7, feel as a 4 and my gut gives me 1 vibes for example. Apparently, your order within each of these do make a difference but you still have obvious similarities with other people who share these types in a different order. A 471 can get along with a 174 for example. I quite like this theory.

    It's kind of hard to completely understand tritypes. Some people go by their highest types when they take the enneagram of each of the three triads. Some go by their gut feelings and what type the person seems to be depending on situations. Based on the two I'll either be a

    9-4-5 (based on the highest scores) (9w1-4w3-5w4)

    or

    9-7-4 (based on my gut) (9w1-7w6-4w3)

    As for adding wings, it gets really confusing. Like my highest scores case. If I decide to choose 4w5... would 5w4 be an option for my tritypes?

    I'm undecided. Options:

    First type- 3w4, 4w3, 3w2
    Second type- 7w6, 6w7
    Third type- 9w8, 8w9, 8w7

    For now, I'm going with 3w4-7w6-8w9.

    Head (567), Heart (234) and Gut (891)

    4-5-1 ... I think.

    Going by http://pstypes.blogspot.com/2009/11/...ions-type.html,

    I'm either 5-4-8 or 5-3-9.

    5-4-8 because that white-hot visceral, temperamental side does lie very close to the surface, but almost always have complete awareness/control over it.

    5-3-9 because that intensely image-conscious side is there.

    Assuming that blogger's observations are remotely accurate, 5-3-9 makes sense in that primary 5 energy could be perceived as tertiary 8 energy because both seem so outwardly similar.
    Likewise, 5-4-8 could make sense because 5s and 9s both desire calm, though on different levels.
    Right now, I'm leaning towards 5-3-9 in that I tend not to indulge in 4 romantic daydreams so much as formulating hypotheses regarding what fulfills the deepest desires of the human collective. Brief spurts of planned, periodic, spastic, but electric interaction followed by lots of isolated contemplation/speculation. Whatever comes out of my mouth usually seems appropriate, but is fine-tuned within conversation/mid-sentence to instigate the other(s) either by freezing, fishing out then isolating their unconscious motivations outright to suggest something outrageous, i.e. highlight the notion that they may have made a claim without my straying from use of expected/typical responses (that part of the def. resonates with me), or if I'm feeling particularly conciliatory, I'll at least give the impression of attempting to merge those observations with how I'd respond. Otherwise, I may physically vacate the interaction without losing/misplacing any focus, which, in fact, tends to rise, much like how a microscope operates. So while I'm capable of fine-tuned, fully expressive engagement, once that energy is (quite rapidly) depleted, it's as if an invisible cane begins pulling me off the stage, complete w/ arms flailing, etc. because it isn't an entirely voluntary act, as data's always a scarcity, and... plumping the depths of human consciousness gets kinda boring when you are your own subject most of the time.

    with types like 3,6,9 i doesnt really matter how you define tritype bc in both definitions you you can be 3-6-9
    but with types such as 5/7 and 2/4 it does because their (dis)integration points arent in all 3 parts(head,gut,heart) but I read in some book, probab Riso since it was on books.google that "7(and5) is most far away from image triad, so image problems in sense of triad definition,ex.shame, are least expressed in 7/5"
    same can prob apply to 2/4.
    which would mean that I dont see a reason why someone would have to relate to a type in each division. Its similar like wings. You can score as 4,1,2,6,7,8,9,5,3. and then test gives u "4w5" answer and you score almost lowest on 5 - so since when its likely that w5 says anything about you if you score so low?
    the same with tritype : as much as idea od having type in each triad is charming, in psych i doesnt work that way. You can relate to descriptions of some types but Enneagram is not about descriptions and I doubt that any other types, besides 4 itself, describe a 4's motivations&fixations better than 1&2. I guess tritype is only invented to popularize enneagram for people who can relate to many types so in order to sell enneagram to them they had to give them liberty to pick types without sense. When you look how your psyche really functions you just see what you see from enneagram simbol.
