    Default Catch phrases you use=your enneatype?

    I was thinking about this today, part of this actually observing yourself vs just 'having a feeling' as to what type you are.

    So I've been paying attention to the phrases I tend to repeat the most during the day.

    What I've come up with:

    "Whatever."
    "It doesn't really matter."
    "It's fine."
    "I'm fine."
    "Up to you."
    "I don't care."
    "Cool."
    "Awesome."
    "Totally."
    "Sounds good."
    "Love you."
    "Sorry."


    What phrases do you find yourself saying repeatedly? What are your go-tos?

    EDIT: Thought of some more:

    "Yeah, that's not my thing."
    "I'm not into that, but, whatever."

    I say polite words like "excuse me, sorry, thank you" a lot IRL (to the shock and surprise of the entire forum) and say

    "like" as a filler word and "hey what's up?"

    "kitties!" or "kiki"

    "that's cool"

    "right on"

    "How's it going?"

    "do you need anything?" or "can you help me with..." or "do you know anything about..."

    I also tend to speak in directive statements because I'm often concerned with acheiving whatever ends, and I use "I don't know, I don't know" as a deflective statement a lot to get people to leave me alone.

    I tend to mirror what other people say a bunch, too. I pick up other people's "catch phrases" very easily.

    while chatting I tend to say "ohai" "that sucks" and "NO U" and "orly" a whole bunch

    I also use copious amounts of "<3" and other kinds of emoticons or silly affectionate words

    Haha ha ha ! I am familiar with 9's passive aggressive style! both in my 9, and in me when i from 3 go to 9.


    What I overuse :

    i can do it!
    I could do it if i wanted to!

    I plan to...(insert plan )
    Other person: that unrealistic
    Me: i can do it


    What if I do that, that and that will I then be awesome?

    I am actually ashamed to use real examples ; but they include things as graduating early, looking the best, being impressive, being more smart than my bf's ex-gf (rofl)...


    I am constantly calculating how i can do something better and faster

    Here are some phrases I use:

    "Anyway,"

    "Does that make sense?"

    "I think..."

    "I feel..."

    "Personally..."

    "What?"

    "I don't think X is necessary for Y, because..."

    "Why?"

    "I would rather..."

    "But what if..."

    "I would never..."

    "I prefer to..."

    "I don't think that's accurate at all."

    "Honestly..."

    "What do you think?"

    "I can't accept that."

    "How can..."

    "Don't you see the implications of..."

    "You should..."

    "I wouldn't, but..."

    "Can it be..."

    "What would..."

    "I'm sorry if this doesn't come across well, but..."

    "I don't know."

    "Maybe."

    "I don't feel like it."

    "What do you want?"

    "How am I supposed to do that? I can't..."

    "I'm not satisfied with..."

    "I don't want..."

    "I need..."

    "I just don't have the energy to..."

    "That's not good enough."

    "I didn't mean it that way, I'm sorry."

    "I can't deal with this."

    "Shut up!"

    "No, it isn't. It's not what you think it is." (In response to someone saying, "it is what it is.")

    hmm

    "hm"
    "heyy"
    "what's up with you"
    "i don't feel like it"
    "no i'll do it"
    "love you"
    "shit i am going to be late" (makes it within 1 minute)

    i tend to mirror others' communication styles too... i should try keeping track of this today and see if i repeat anything else noteworthy.

    As a type 6:

    Don't get mad at me!

    I know I am worthless piece of shit, but...

    I don't believe you, that is too positive.

    That person hates me...I know it.

    AHA! I SUSPECTED IT ALL ALONG!

    *Incoherent stammering, flustered ramblings*



    And the most common phrase:

    I feel betrayed.

    My husband, who I think is a 6w7, says stuff like this all the time. It drives me nuts! I have a hard time believing he really thinks that, it's like he's saying it so that people will think he's a regular, humble guy. I don't know. Maybe he really does think it...?

    Do you?
