    There are things about four that are totally me, like the desire to understand myself and fully process my feelings. I am highly self absorbed. I often find myself yearning for something else vs being happy with what ive got. Conversely, I'm a pretty optimistic person who enjoys the simple pleasures of life, being one w nature, etc.

    Dunno. I've got to go to class...
    Are you calm? Or are you moody?

    9's enjoy being calm and centered. 4's are emotional and enjoy being so.

    4/5 makes a melodramatic person more less histrionic and more observant so it helps with creativity. 9/8 is a calm person who becomes assertive when their calm is attacked or challenged.

    I got both 4/5 and 9/8 in my tritype so I read the descriptions :P

    I enjoy the idea of being calm but I'm definitely moody. Sometimes I'm calm, and I think I can sometimes seem calm, but it's rarer than I like to think. I become assertive when... I don't know, when I perceive injustice, when I feel I or others are being tread upon. Unsure.

    I love emotions, especially feeling deep emotions through the arts or connecting intimately with others. When things get dull I start to get depressed. But I don't like too much drama, either, cause then it completely absorbs me.

    9 definitely seems to be my gut. 4 is no question my heart.

    Nines are calm, they don't just want to be calm. Nines are often tall and have rather deep voices. They are not always the giants of the Enneagram, but they often are. Fours have a more timid, fragile appearance. And the description of yourself above is hands down INFP.

    Works for me. So now... 4w3 or 4w5 and potentially this instinctual variant and tritype madness...

    Or... you can do what I do and 'pretend' it doesn't exist and that only your core type has any actual significance, lol. Madness indeed...

    Well, I did take the eclectic energies test and it said I had balanced wings, (and those wings were pretty low on my list of possible types), so I think I'm with you on this. Although 7 and 9 came- after a gap-in second and third, so the tritype thing might be fairly right on. Although I also think it's a bit superfluous, same with instinctual variant.
