    5 ? ?

    Don't care what the unknowns are, why would you need to know that much detail. The enneagrams main purpose is self improvement and understanding of others, there is loads of information available if you consider the one main type that you exhibit. That is already more than enough detail to work with, maybe even too much. Do you know everything about your main type? Do you know everything about the other main types of people around you? I'm not even sure that I'm typing half of the people I know right, let alone looking deep inside people to work out the exact details of what their head is made of. /foolish rant

    Great descriptions though, I really like them.

    i like these descriptions too. they're something fairly easy to gauge about yourself.

    going off this, i'm 6-9-4. a "seeker." i like that. or a 693, maybe.

    Allright...so let's try applying it to a real life example James Toney

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2jlvHddNxDg&feature=fvst

    Gut fix [8]: weighty, unapologetic...attacking style...8 fixers go through life in a more direct manner than 9 or 1 fixers.
    wing (9): sloth in verbalization and language...seems to 'fade out' a bit

    Image fix (3): "i'm the best"...presentation as a consistent winner, better than...
    wing (4): more self-referential/regal...calling out others' 'fakeness'...

    Head fix (6): increased toughness...assessing opponents
    wing (5): he seems too "turfy" "immobile" for a 7 wing.

    Instinct (sp/sx): is provocative, but mainly getting those sx-intensity needs met through his sp material drive.

    By the time everyone is done ennegram typing, they have become partly each number. Wth?

    some five fix v. seven fix distinctions....five fixers can’t sustain an on the go pattern like a seven fixer can....They may wonder about things to the point of inaction. 7 fixers are more prone to just put their foot in the water without wondering whether what they want to do will actually work. Intellectual 7 fixers are also more monkey minded....They are easily distracted by other subjects and like to switch back and forth unlike the more focused and concentrated 5 fixer...

    I agree with this. I can probably explain everything about me using my type 5.

    I wonder to beyond the point of inaction, but I am notoriously monkey minded (with the exception of my all-consuming enneagram obsession). So what does that mean?

    But I don't relate to what you said about 6 in the op at all. And I relate very much to what you say about delighting in concepts.

    Edit- I should add that when I was younger I didn't do the wondering to inaction thing, I was very much the seven way, but after being severely burned by that behavior, I keep myself for the most part in serious check.
