    Default Do you idolize...

    your second type in your tritype?

    I've seen some people say that they admire 4w5's when they're 9w1's and had 4w5 as their secondary in the tritype-thingy. I'm the opposite, I admire 9's immensely, and it's my secondary. While I love being a 4, I'm too often reminded of its not so glamorous sides. Perhaps this is coz you actually...live and breathe that type? Kinda like 'the grass is greener' syndrome?

    And *if* this is true, it makes me wonder why the 3d type isn't subject to this and how it fits in

    In simple terms, you take the enneagram and break it up into these 3 sections: 8 9 1 - 2 3 4 - 5 6 7, then choosing one number and wing from each of the three sections, you line them up in terms of how prominant they are in your personality.

    For example, I'm 9w8 'dominant', 5w6 'auxillary' and 4w5 'inferior', so my tritype is 9w8>5w6>4w5
    It can kind of be looked at in the same light as MBTI functions.

    I have in the past, idolized 5w4 and 4w5. I think it was their creativity I wanted. Still think some of them are adorable (esp infp). I think 4w5 is in my tri-type, and I have the 5 wing so.... 5w4 works in that way.

    yes, but.

    i idolize 3, but i also idealize 3. i don't think i would actually rather have 3's concerns and feelings on a day-to-day basis.

    i just want to look perfectly put-together like one

    Vala, as an 835, I value my 5, far, far more than the 3. The 3 is annoying as hell and usually gets kicked around the block by the other two!
