    Default 7w8, 9w8, 9w1, 3w4...What's Elfboy's type?

    just when I was starting to think I knew I am more confused than ever now. I'm decided on ENFP and sp/sx, but not enneagram


    for 7w8
    - this description is SO me http://www.enneagramcentral.com/Enne...eservation.htm
    - I think my main motivation is pleasure, albeit in a more complicated, deep sort of way
    - assertive, go after what they want
    - prone to fantasies of grand and glamorous dillusion
    - like to look glamorous and pimped out
    - ideal lifestyle is usually quite expensive
    - self preservation 7w8s are described quite differently from typical 7s

    against 7w8
    - 7s are said to base their identity in what they see around them. this is not me at all
    - low energy level
    - highly introspective despite being E
    - generally positive like a 7, but I have a melancholy side (although it's not a depressed kind of melancholy
    - similarly, I would not describe myself at all as sanguine
    - content doing barely anything

    for 9
    - I don't feel like an 8 or a 1, but I feel strong connection to both
    - I share the positive sides of type 3, but I don't see any of the negatives of them in my (suggestive of growth perhaps?)
    - strong need for internal harmony (but not external harmony)
    - I could sit and relax without doing anything for days and be content

    against 9
    - naturally assertive
    - don't mind conflict
    - not approval seeking
    - willing to disagree at the expense of offending someone/causing conflict
    - pretty much zero connection to 6
    - connection to 3 is mostly external and likely more of a 7 connection

    PS: I don't believe I am a 3, 4 or an 8, but a few others seem to, so I left those options open for consideration

    What is your deepest desire and what is your biggest fear? Answer these questions without thinking about the enneagram at all.

    that's what makes it so hard. I share the basic fears of 4, 7 and 8 and the basic desires of 7, 8 and 9.

    That's why I said don't think about the enneagram at all. Just say the thing that scares you the most and what you desire the most.

    Well, it can be to 1, 9, 8, and 7, with 8 and 9 being the strongest fits. So between that, you seem to be much more of an 8 with your assertivness and energetic attitiude than a 9 would be, so I think 8w9 would fit you the best, with 8w7 as the runner yp because of a string wing 7.

    It's hard to tell in what way he is assertive. It's not like all assertive people are 8s. 7s can be kind of capricious and fun/humorous about it, counterphobe 6s can be reactive and anxious/pissed, 4s can be individualistic, 1s idealistic.. Sky's the limit really!

    I agree with Kdude, what's very obvious to me that he is not a 7,
    i'd bet on 8, ...but i didnt completely exclude 4 or 3 (equal chances).

    80% that you are an 8.

    how do you feel about sliding to 5 ?
