    No, I'm not a 3. I just thought I was because that is what I would always get as a result on tests. But learning more about Enneagram, it's becoming clear to me that was incorrect.

    It seems like each time I take an Enneagram test I get a different answer. First 9w1, then 4w5, now 6w5. I can relate to all three almost equally. The descriptions of 4s do resonate with me more than the others, but after discussing Enneagram with a couple people I'm wondering if that's just because some sources model 4 descriptions after INFJ and INFP profiles (since 4 is supposedly the most common Enneagram type for INFJs and INFPs).

    I have struggled with minor anxiety issues (such as insomnia) throughout my life, so maybe I am a 6. But I'm not convinced, and it is frustrating to get a different answer each time I take the test. This definitely isn't as clear-cut as Myers-Briggs typing (in which I score INFJ consistently every time).

    I checked out a thick book on Enneagram type from the library hoping to get a definitive answer; I read checklists of 20 questions for each type, and the book said that which ever one I respond yes to 15 or more questions is my type. Well, I responded "yes" to 11-12 questions for 4, 5, 6, and 9. So now I'm more confused than ever. Sighhh.

    What do you mean? You tend to type other INFJs as 4w5? Or you tend to type most people as 4w5 regardless of MBTI type? Either way... interesting.

    how can you spot 5ness in others?
    You're really just setting yourself up for a smart-ass answer. Must... fight... the... urge...

    I've tested as 3w4 in the past but I'd really have to look into it more to be sure.

    Using online Enneagram quizzes and reading through a few Enneagram books, I identify as 2w1 with a rather decent health level. I do not really see myself integrating into a 4 much, because I am too timid to stand up for myself and to place myself at a higher priority.

    At the same time, my partner is starting to wonder if I might be a 4 who has degraded into a 2 due to overbearing upbringing.

    I find it interesting that quite a number of INFJs tested as 4s.

    Wow, that sounds very similar to my experience. I rate high in 4 but also quite high in 1 and 2 (though my highest are usually 4, 9, and 6). Having read a little about Enneagram, I think your partner's theory may be correct because 4 and 2 seem to be linked (4s often act like 2s and vice versa). I had somewhat of an overbearing upbringing as well and similarly have trouble standing up for myself, and I tend to feel uncomfortable putting myself before others. So although aspects of 4 Enneagram fit me very well, other parts of it (the Fi parts) just don't sound quite right. So like you mentioned, I am beginning to think that I may be a 4 that goes to 2 regularly. 4s are also connected with 1, supposedly when we are at our best we have the positive qualities of a 1, which also resonates with my experience. Just some food for thought

    I had a hard time deciding what my motivation in life was. I can relate to 3, 4, and 5 equally. But I'll go with 4w3, even if sounds a little over-dramatic/angsty.

    that makes a lot of sense. one of my best friends is a 4w3. they have that deep need for recognition and self-expression, but they're generally better at playing the game than types with a 5 wing. it comes more easily, they operate within and participate in externalities more easily. need alone time yes, but less constant need for withdrawal. more comfortable with self-assertion and the occasional improv. 5 types need time to prepare, get our shit together, and achieve total mastery before we are ready to put anything forth.

    The way to determine 2 or 4 is to see what you do when under stress. One should be more pronounced than the others. Sometimes the behaviors mix according to path of disintegration.

    Type 2 under stress - fear of being unloved thus resent and manipulate others
    Type 4 under stress - fear of being defective thus indulge in fantasy

    Which one are you under deep stress?


    I'll post the rest of it for anyone unsure about other types under stress

    Type 1 - fear of being condemned thus correct others
    Type 2 - fear of being unloved thus resent and manipulate others
    Type 3 - fear of being rejected thus compete
    Type 4 - fear of being defective thus indulge in fantasy
    Type 5 - fear of being overwhelmed by the world thus detached from others/world
    Type 6 - fear of being abandoned thus distrust others
    Type 7 - fear of being deprived thus numbly seek sensations
    Type 8 - fear of submitting to others thus controlling
    Type 9 - fear of separation thus accommodating.
