    Hmmm...ok

    ( sorry... I still need to get used to the abundance of emotes... )

    The following link was actually the last one I got to read. For some reason it made things a tiny bit clearer. Maybe you already know it. It's actually just short things from different authors put together. If you change the type number near the end of the url you will also be able to read the descriptions of the other types.

    Ugh...dunno if this helped at all... but I don't have more right now. Maybe later.

    Thanks. I like this one, too: (all of the stuff about six)http://www.9types.com/descr/6/

    All right... six is definitely seeming like a possibility, sexual variant, primarily counterphobic, although I definitely oscillate between the two. (Can see sx/sp, so/sx, sp/sx (although not one-like) in the ocean moonshine descriptions, otherwise sexual variant.)

    From

    Sixes and Fours can mistype, although generally it is the Six who mistypes, or is mistyped by others, as a Four. This is especially true if the Six is creative and prone to depression. Both types can be emotionally complex and suffer from ambivalence. But Sixes, unlike Fours, are not essentially self-absorbed; they automatically consider the positions and feelings of others. Sixes, moreover, are not concerned primarily with being authentic because they are far less image oriented than are Fours.
    Definitely the bold.
    Sixes with the Five wing generally tend more towards introversion than do those with a Seven wing. They characteristically withdraw under stress and typically have a few trusted friends to whom they can turn in times of trouble. They are often drawn to systems of thought, whether religious, political or philosophical which help them explain their experiences and which provide them with a framework which confers on them some semblance of control and prediction. Sixes with a Seven wing tend to be somewhat more amiable and adventurous, generally more optimistic overall. They tend to look outside themselves for the means of assuaging their anxiety and thus often have a more extroverted nature than do those with a Five wing. They tend to have multiple hobbies and interests, but they are somewhat less capable of focus than are Sixes with a Five wing, but only as a very general rule.
    more 6w5 than 6w7, I think.

    The more I contemplate 6, the less it seems a possibility. I answered this test as honestly as possible, it seems like a good one: http://www.9types.com/cgi-bin/ennea/tal/test.cgi

    And I got- 4, balanced wings, followed by 7wbarely 6, and then 9 (no wings)

    I'm never going to understand this.

    hm...

    well...I also always end up a 4 in (almost) all tests. But the way you're questioning the whole thing doesn't seem very 4-ish, afaik. It reminds me a bit of myself and what I have been told to be 6-ish behaviour. Maybe you have got a 4 in your tritype. it IS possible - also from the vibe I'm getting from you, actually...kinda...maybe...

    Here's some incomplete list of some tritype descriptions:

    Maybe you'll find something in it.

    I get what you're saying. I'm pretty confident my tritype is 4-7w6-9 in some order. My main, most problematic issues are seven-related, but I'm always told introverts can't be sevens... But I'm incredibly impulsive, always chasing the next possibility as being the real right thing that I can stick to and finally accomplish something... I don't know. It even happens here... Yes! This is my type! I finally found it! Wait... Dammit... No... I suck.... No.... Wait! This is it! Yes!

    In this way elfboy and I are very similar.

    Totally relate to this:

    Self-pres/Sexual Seven
    This subtype is similar to the self-pres/social, but their plans and pursuits are more passionate in nature. There is often more of an artistic flair. They can be moodier then the other subtype. Their focus is more on relationships, although commitment can also be a problem for this subtype. This subtype can even be known to use introspection as an escape. They can go inward with a seeming depth, but they will usually avoid the most troublesome areas, the areas and characteristics most painful to them. This subtype of Seven is overall more focused than the self-pres/social. Their focus is on their intimates although certainly not solely on them as they usually have many other fires burning also. They generally have a great sense of humor, sharp quick minds and many interests. These qualities might be common to all subtypes of the Seven, but in the self-pres/sexual subtype, the infusion of enthusiasm comes through when they are engaged in their plans and fulfilling them.

    How about 6w7? Have you read that description on the page I have linked you to? And compared the 6w7 and 7w6 description? It was actually the only 6w7 description I could relate to kinda...

    I read it... You know, I don't know what to say. I gave it an honest try. There are 6w7s in my life and their fears and need to have the answer, always asking my opinion kind of drives me bonkers. I know I've been doing that a bit on here, but in real life, I state my opinion, I don't ask for advice. Psychiatrists get annoyed by me because I never ask for advice, I already figured it out on my own and I need the medication, so...

    Six wing, maybe. Having it be my dominant type seems a stretch. I'm just not that cautious or distrustful. I am not a team player. I have never had an us vs them mentality, I don't root for the home team, etc.

    I'd say my qualities lean toward quick grasp of ideas, artistic sensibility, trusting of those I love, empathy, and I'm inventive, non-conformist. My faults are lack of follow-through, wandering eye, slave to feelings, laziness, and stubbornly independent. Unsure what enneatype that makes me, but I know my number one thing in my life I need to improve is picking one artistic pursuit and following it through until it's finished, even if I get bored with it.

    Have you seen this before? This link here leads to a thread in which attempts to create a formula for finding your enneagram type: http://www.typologycentral.com/forum...hp/t-8520.html

    According to this, type 6 is anticipating/turbulent, which means they neither approach nor avoid situations, and they make no attempt to suppress or control their emotions. Type 7 is pursuing/controlling, and type 4 is avoiding/turbulent.

    Based on this system, which type fits you best? Although I'm not sure I'd rely on this alone. There are also the motivations, fears, and levels to consider for determining your type. It seems the enneagram is prettier in theory than in practice; when it actually comes down to typing people, it gets messy because not everything is necessarily going to fit perfectly.

    Thanks for that link, Revlis. According to that, my preliminary type is without question 4 (it will take a minute to digest the nuances and reflect in order to figure out the rest. Not only that, having been on mood stabilizers for the last five years makes it all the more complicated- ' what's me? What's medication?')

    Also, for sure sx/sp/so.

    Thanks again.
