    This is the first I'm hearing of tri-types, but I'd definitely call myself a 5-4-9 or a 5-9-4. I've just recently been tossing myself up between 5w4 and 5w9. It shifts from day to day.
    MBTI: INTP (PNIT if you wanna put it in order of strength.)
    Socionics: INTp
    Enneagram: 5w4
    Alignment: Neutral Good
    Political Stance: (usually) Very Liberal
    Religious Stance: (roughly) Secular Humanist
    Class: Wizard
    Stereotype: Geek/Hippie

    Also, credit for my new avatar goes to this person. I found it on the google.

    ^ thankfully, 5s are commonplace on the net, so the tritypes for E5 are easy to find.
    That's not really how I think of it.

    The problem with the enneagram is that people think, because it purports to describe your "personality", they expect a full breakdown of who they are. The enneagram isn't built for it. I can explain myself better later, but it's like driving a car on a rail track.

    Agree.

    The real enneagram is:

    Heart: passion of the type
    Head: the mental fixation of the type
    Gut: subtypes

    Not trifix. It's bullshit.

    I haven't discuss about my actual enneagram, I hope others can give some insight.

    I'll give a short explanation about my enneagram tritype:

    5w6= As a 5, I like to observes things and learning, if I have a trouble, 6 takes over (doubt). Type 6 = Keep an eyes to both of your friends and enemies. (I'm sure type 6 know this very well, and as an INTJ, I didn't get fools twice)
    4w5= Identity seeker and knowledge seeker, I'm logical thinker.
    1w9= I tend to see a flaw and try to fix things, I take a bath twice a day, I like to take care of my health. As a nine, I dislike conflict.

    Any insight?

    Looks like there is no positive response for 5-4-1. I think I'll just close this thread.

    I wouldn't recommend using wings in your tritype, better to keep it simple. I also think you will find this easier with more information.

    5-3-9s are kind of a big deal. Thoughtful, pragmatic, flexible, and still pretty bearable.
    I don't have much to add, I think the description is great.
    5-3-9: these Fives might strike others as rather pleasant and cooperative persons, but they are usually more ambitious and purposeful than they let on. They are goal-oriented individualists who dream of achieving an impressive and long-lasting success in their field – they secretly desire becoming famous and leaving their mark on the world. These Fives are also more dependent on outer validation than others – they care more about their image and the way others perceive and react to them, therefore they might seem a little more conventional and mainstream in their behavior.
    typical subtypes: social, self-preserving, balanced wings
    similar tritypes: 5-9-3, 9-5-3
    flavours: cunning, congenial, goal-oriented and flexible
    Also, I agree with @Asterion; wings overcomplicate the Tri Types.

    That's not the best analogy for explaining personality, but it is the enneagram way.

    Tritypes has opened up a new dimension of personality exploration. I'm generally wary of new theories, but after a few months of seeing tritypes on this forum I've finally come around to the new way of thinking about personality.
