    I test pretty consistently as a 9w1. It's pretty fitting of how I am....
    Nines are accepting, trusting, and stable. They are usually creative, optimistic, and supportive, but can also be too willing to go along with others to keep the peace. They want everything to go smoothly and be without conflict, but they can also tend to be complacent, simplifying problems and minimizing anything upsetting. They typically have problems with inertia and stubbornness. At their Best: indomitable and all-embracing, they are able to bring people together and heal conflicts.
    The majority of this statement describes me pretty well.... It's not a 100% fit, but it's pretty damn close.
    Key Motivations: Want to create harmony in their environment, to avoid conflicts and tension, to preserve things as they are, to resist whatever would upset or disturb them.
    This is definitely me. I get really stressed out when conflict is going on around me. If someone starts drama in my presence, I'm known for vanishing very quickly. Sister-in-law is a pro at making me disappear from a room.... She's a drama queen...

    I took the quoted info from this site if you want to read up on it.

    Well, if you are willing to go that far, might as well read the description of 9w8. I've had a similar experience with not knowing whether my type was 4, 5, 6 or 9. It's sort of like I said, I've felt like 4 and 5 were extreme cases to me even though both did apply to me. Often times, when you have more than one type that "seems" like you, chances are that you could just be 6 or 9 (and maybe 3.)

    Sort of wished the long list of Blackcat's reference were still here.
    i also feel as though seeming like a 9 or a 2 might fit along with the 4w5 dynamic. ...a preference for finding/est my identity and seeking knowledge may have been what led me towards the ideas of finding peace. and being an ISFP, desire for practicality and having a healthy Fi has led me to seem to fit the idea of a 2 as well. but i read somewhere, some unhealthy 9's may confuse their selves with type 4 or 5.

    i feel as though this sounds like me... however, i don't know that my key motivation in life is creating harmony.
    i've created some disharmony, as well. but if i have two friends whom are at odds with one another, i'll typically try to sit with each to try and help bring about some sort of truce or peace. but if someone has crossed me or someone i know, i can be quite harsh.
    the words, "too willing," doesn't really sound accurate to me. i'll go along so long as there isn't much of an impact one way or another. sometimes i stand down. but if something bothers me enough, i stand my ground. Fi is quite an interesting thing. you desire to seek consensus, but also the weighing of values can make one feel like joan of arc.

    i had always considered myself the optimistic depressant, which fits along with the 9. even in my darkest moments, i'd try to remind myself that this feeling would eventually pass. but i feel like this optimism was passed on to me from my dad. he always said, "suicide is never the answer. something better will eventually come along." and i took that to heart. i've contemplated suicide more than once, but would remember what he said, and also look back to other times i'd felt this same way, and always realized that these feelings are fleeting. just as happiness is. also, aristotle's teachings on happiness and the ups and downs to life really had an impact on me as well. so i'm conflicted here between 4 and 9.

    also, i consider myself to be pretty self involved (like a 4). but, if someone needs help, i don't hesitate. but i don't think it's quite to the degree of a 2, where i put others needs above my own. i'm quite aware of my own needs as well, and if i feel someone is intruding in on my space, i will lash out. but, say for example, a friend calls me in the middle of the night... be it for a ride or someone to talk to, i'll be there in a heartbeat. but i think this is just what good and unselfish people do. not to mention, my friends would typically return the favor.

    I'm the same way... The only major issue I have with 9 is that "too willing" statement... But like MBTI, it fits me the best... So I figure I've just learned not to succumb just to keep the harmony... That you can't always have harmony 100% of the time.

    Like I said , it's fairly common for a 9 to mistype themselves as a 4, 5, or 2 than it is the other way around.

    http://www.ocean-moonshine.net/e1428...position=36:36

    Nines and Twos can easily mistype. It is especially the case that female Nines who are identified with a nurturing role might mistake themselves for Twos. Both types tend to be generous and oriented towards feelings and relationships. Nines, however, are truly humble and generally self-effacing, whereas Twos tend to have a high opinion of themselves and tend to want to receive recognition for their good deeds. Twos are also far more aggressive when pushed than are Nines who characteristically withdraw under stress.

    Nines and Fours can both be sensitive, creative, withdrawn and introverted and for these reasons can cross-type, although it is generally the Nine who mistypes as a Four or who is mistyped as a Four by others on the basis of these similarities. Nines, in particular, sometimes recognize that they are far less happy than they let on, and many Nines feel inadequate when depressed; they therefore think they must be Fours. The internal landscape of Fours is much darker than that of Nines however, who tend to see the best in others and who characteristically detach from strong emotions, especially strong unpleasant emotions. Nines are also not in search of an authentic self or the proper presentation of that self; they are generally somewhat oblivious to these concerns. Finally, Nines tend to relate well to a greater variety of people than do Fours, who often feel like misfits.

    Nines and Fives are both withdrawn types and many Nines are systematic thinkers and intellectuals, therefore there are some commonalities which might generate a mistype. It is generally Nines who mistake themselves or are mistaken by others as Fives; Fives almost never mistype as Nines. One of the principle differences lies in their approach to thought. Nines tend to look for thought systems which offer some sense of harmony; Fives are attracted to what disturbs them and often embrace or struggle against nihilism. Nines relate well to a wide variety of people; Fives to only a few.

    I've actually created disharmony. Disharmony isn't always bad. In fact, it can be better than wanting harmony.

    Voicing opinions, etc, isn't as bad as it sounds. That's what a 9 generally needs to learn.

    One of the things that people in real life repeatedly tell me to be is to be more assertive. Say what I need to say, even if it means that others get mad.

    I'm a 9 who had mistaken herself for a 5, 4, and 6. Finally settle down to 9w8.

    7w6 ISFP is just an extrovert who took a test when they were depressed, and didn't bother to double check. You can't be both.
