    Default Enneagram Phases?

    Is it possible to go through different phases within your tritype as you get older?

    I'm not sure I understand what you mean. Can you explain what you mean by 'phases within your tritype'?

    Well, I have always typed as a 4 since I took the test back in college. For me it feels like type 4 is who I am at the end of the day when I am alone with myself and thinking about things, and how I approach things. When I have to be around people (work, family, friends) I am more apt to fall into an entertaining kind of a role... which has had lots of people asking me on the forum if I am a type 7 ENFP.

    I was just curious if there was a way to explain my weirdness.

    definitely. I can feel my 7w8, 8w9 and 4w3 pretty succinctly

    7w8: polarizing, choleric, enthusiastic, attention seeking

    8w9: protective, low key, dark yet gentle,

    4w3: self absorbed, histrionic, DRAMATIC, superiority complex, constantly fighting the urge to talk about myself and what I think about things.

    I can relate to this as well. I'm a 9 around others, a 4 when I'm alone, and a 6 when I'm problem-solving. Hmm...maybe that's why I keep changing types. :P

    I believe you are right. I don't think the Tri Type order is always permanent. I watch 3s and 9s and I can see myself behaving just like them, but for the most part I resist it.

    Your level of self awareness is admirable.

    I think so. In my day-to-day life, I probably alternate between 5 and 4. But I definitely have my 1/9 moments (I can't decide between 1 and 9 but one would be a wing of the other if I were to give my tritype wings.) as well.

    Edit:

    I was looking at the growth and stress "paths" and they make me wonder now.

    Everything you list here can be explained by your 7w8 Sp/Sx Type only. Wich indicates to me that "trifix" is based on Barnum effect and nothing more.

    Does your base fear, desire and motivation change? My own experience is they don't, I relate rather strongly to two different E-types myself, but the base fear, desire and motivation for me is consistently E7. While we may express ourselves differently depending on where we are, underneath is still the same.

    4 Basic Fear: That they have no identity or personal significance
    Basic Desire: To find themselves and their significance (to create an identity)
    Key Motivations: Want to express themselves and their individuality, to create and surround themselves with beauty, to maintain certain moods and feelings, to withdraw to protect their self-image, to take care of emotional needs before attending to anything else, to attract a "rescuer".

    7 Basic Fear: Of being deprived and in pain
    Basic Desire: To be satisfied and content—to have their needs fulfilled
    Key Motivations: Want to maintain their freedom and happiness, to avoid missing out on worthwhile experiences, to keep themselves excited and occupied, to avoid and discharge pain.
    Where do you sit with that?

    Saying that you're INFP isn't enough?
