    Well, cutting it down to just that... I am definitely a four then.

    That was easier than I thought .

    Doesn't work for me...I relate to the basic desires of both 9 and 4, I think, but neither of the basic fears.

    I too, relate to more than one basic desire in types. In my case, 6 and 7.

    You can figure out which type you are by asking yourself, "If I had to, which desire would I give up?" For me, I would have given up the 7 desire if push came to shove, leaving my enneagram type as 6.

    Hmm...maybe. But I'm having a bit of trouble figuring out what exactly "peace of mind" is, since it means something different to different people. For now I'm interpreting it as being free from emotional pain. If that interpretation works, I think I would choose 9's desire over 4's.

    Hmm, interesting. Do you identify with 7 at all, since their desire is to avoid/escape pain?

    7's are like my complete opposite. I'm very introverted and not particularly cheerful or adventurous. I do think the motivation fits though, I just don't act on it in the same way that 7's do. I avoid pain by withdrawing.

    That makes sense. From what you have said before and this, you do seem like a nine.

    I find it fascinating how a lot of enneagram types have similar motivations, but they act on it in totally different ways.

    Then you're 9.

    The type who doesn't know who they are

    To compensate for being out of touch with their instinctual energies, Nines also retreat into their minds and their emotional fantasies. (This is why Nines can sometimes misidentify themselves as Fives and Sevens, “head types,” or as Twos and Fours, “feeling types.”) ...

    We have sometimes called the Nine the crown of the Enneagram because it is at the top of the symbol and because it seems to include the whole of it. Nines can have the strength of Eights, the sense of fun and adventure of Sevens, the dutifulness of Sixes, the intellectualism of Fives, the creativity of Fours, the attractiveness of Threes, the generosity of Twos, and the idealism of Ones. However, what they generally do not have is a sense of really inhabiting themselves—a strong sense of their own identity.
