    If I could be any other tritype, I'd be a 458. I really wish I had an eight gut fix. I think that's the thing that sucks about the one gut- I totally feel my anger, and there's so much energy there that I could use for something real, to help achieve the things I want to do-to hell with my super ego- but instead I just repress that energy and turn it against myself.

    I think I might be 6-8-4, The Truth Teller.
    I wonder if tritypes can change. I'm sure at one time I was probably 9 instead of 8, and I can still revert to 9 at times, when I don't think the situation deems worthy. Sometimes it's just not worth it to go through the trouble of being a truth teller lol.

    It's very true of me, including the "persnickety know it all" bit

    I think the most interesting bit about my tritype is it explains that slight hard edge that a 1 gives. It also explains the perfectionism, conviction, idealism and my inclination to express my opinions quite forcibly, and I have a lot of them.
    Yeah....I do the bolded so much it's almost hilarious to read it. The demeanor is just, er, stiffer than the other IFPs possibly appear. But being a 4 primary, there is still something little more kooky going on than the 145 description suggests. People tend to be surprised I'm not a goody-good or totally dry when they get to know me. The self-indulgence can go beyond info gathering also, but that's sort of a given for any 4.

    145

    If you are a 145, you are diligent, intuitive, and knowledgeable. You want to be ethical, original and wise. Highly intellectual, you are focused on what you perceive is correct and above reproach. Research oriented, you seek and quote the opinions of experts to avoid being seen as ignorant.

    Your life mission is to study and learn as much as you can and then teach the wisdom of what you have learned to others. A true researcher, you are happiest using your investigative skills.

    You can be so identified with the information that you have gathered and the correct way of doing things that you feel exhausted and can appear to be a persnickety know it all.

    7w6 3w4 9w8 , but I took this one http://www.enneagramquiz.com/quiz.html instead of the card one. It fits though... my 7 and 3 are really close. The 9 is just there to give chill pills to the other two

    This test gave me the exact same result, except that the 7 had an 8 wing. (Twilight zone music.)

    (buttttt it doesn't fit.)

    That test gave me 4w5/5w4/1w2. I would think I'd be more likely to be 1w9- But I've really had to tap into the two lately so maybe it's picking up on that.

    Hmm, I took the sample test and I got both top and second ranked enneacard "Enneagram Type 5".

    On the test posted by LunaLuminosity I got 5w6, 3w2, 1w9.

    So you mean to say that, "I was watching this interesting TED talk online the other day..." or "I recently read this article about a new study on..." aren't good conversation starters at parties?

    This explains some things...



    Yeah....I do the bolded so much it's almost hilarious to read it. The demeanor is just, er, stiffer than the other IFPs possibly appear.

    Well as the link Rasofy suggested, apparently, "451 is the most 5ish 4. Rational and scientific" - which would explain the things you mentioned. And I guess the 5 and 1 would seem to create a sense of dryness and rigidity - although it's strange that to others this would appear to overshadow the expressive, quirky and romantic nature of the 4. I suspect others think I'm dry and a bit of a goody good too. Not that they tell me - it's more of an impression of their impression.

    Did you see the video Elfboy posted a while back? In it they compare a 451 and a 479 and you can see how much variation there can within the 4 (and probably equally within INFPs). It would be interesting to see what are the most common tritypes for the INFP 4s around here.

    If you haven't seen it, here's the video (just skip to 46:13 to get to the 4 comparison)

    I've dreamt in my life dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas;
    they've gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the colour of my mind.

    Well, that's sort of what I meant; I don't think it entirely overshadows the 4 nature. It's hard to know what impression you give people, and context & preconceptions affect it a lot. Some do find me starry-eyed & quirky, but then they fail to note my bookish side.

    Yeah, their comments are interesting. It's hilarious that the 451 has a similar job to me also.

    I'm still not entirely convinced of tri-type because I continue to wonder if it's just a different way of explaining the same traits/motivations that some other aspect of enneagram explains also. Maybe I think this because my wing & integration point (5 & 1) are also in my tri-type.... What if it's the same thing with different names?

    And what if the 479 is so 9ish appearing because they are actually a 9 mistyped as a 4 (maybe because they are disintegrating reactive, anxious 6 traits or integrating 3 image motivations)?

    I notice those who focus on tritype don't put as much stock into wings & integration/disintegration, discussing them far less & even sometimes dismissing their effects, and I wonder if that is why.... the theories possibly conflict a little, or both are not necessary because they overlap too much.

    Yes, you have a point but I am aware that my 1-like qualities are not always healthy and therefore can't be associated with integration and growth - being a persnickety know it all, for instance.

    I suppose that the interrelated nature of the 3 types in a 451 would emphasize and ingrain the pre-existing links to a greater degree - it could create a heightened 4w5.
