    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.
    I'm sure intentions are good, but I can't help but think tritype is founded on a basic misunderstanding. It manages to undermine a lot by trying to explain too much. The types end up diluted, becoming a list of generalised characteristics rather than the all-pervading, distinctive world-views that they are.

    What do you mean by an all-pervading, distinctive world-view?

    I mean just that! The enneagram types aren't like dresses that you take on and off - they're describing base, unconscious assumptions that influence everything we think, do, say, feel, etc - assumptions that don't just magically go away because you're suddenly aware of them and you're going to "act like an eight" today.

    What the enneagram helps us do is to manage these assumptions in ways that are constructive and healthy.

    Oh, so you mean assumptions about the world in general. Well, if there can be a wing-type, then why not a tritype?

    Yes, I read some info. Not much I can get, but I think I'm 541.

    I don't think much of the wings either.

    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?
    5w6 and 1w9 are my actual enneagram, except for 4w5 and 3w4. I'm more to 3w4 than 4w5 because I don't have tendencies to kill myself, I'm not interested in politic, I'm not materialistic and I've been successful to finish my study, buy a land for my family and live far away from my parents. I always wanted to go out from home actually, I visited them once a year.

    That is simple explanation about my enneagram.

    I'm no expert, but tritype makes sense to me. The enneatypes are grouped into head, heart, and gut groupings. Whichever grouping our primary type falls under, we still use the other two aspects. A 5 like myself still engages the heart and the gut, for instance. It seems reasonable, then, to consider the various ways we might do this.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    I agree, everyone uses their heart, gut and mind in equal measure (or at least, the well-adjusted do).

    My problem is that the types really only reveal themselves when people are out of balance with their other centres, which I think is what really defines them. So to say that you're a 5, but also a 3, but also a 9, seems to dramatically miss the point in my opinion, since they're all extremely different forms of egotism and lay on completely different spectrums.

    I don't give the three tritype numbers equal weight. I see it more as: I'm a 5, so I rely on my head more, with a 5 perspective. To the extent that I engage my gut, it is more like a 1 than an 8 or 9; heart involvement is like 4 rather than 2 or 3. The analogy is imperfect, but it is a bit like saying: while I am not much of an athlete, I favor solitary, noncompetitive sports like jogging, hiking and cycling. Specifying how I engage in this area does not put it on a par with my stronger and more comfortable areas of life.
