    PS: accommodating types get on my nerves, but I don't know if I'd call all of them wimpy.

    in such regards, 9s are probably the most spineful for standing their peace no matter what.

    i do nothing if someone hits me, but thats cause i dont see a point in doing anything, 9 does same to conserve peace, and if stron 1 wing, might even choose to remove the person from this realm as to prevent it from happening to others. (usually i choose so for the other persons life is anyways not worth a single attention, and probably the reason they attack me.. since proceeding into an action wouldnt change anything, the damage is done.).
    I think 9s generally have a higher threshold for what they will deem worthy of opening up a can over. That being said, when unhealthy I do think 9s can be extreeeemely wimpy and pathetic.

    9s can be so avoidant and passive I want to shake them,

    I think there is often some real misunderstanding of the motivations of some of their behavior, especially when healthy. When unhealthy 9s behavior is coming from a place of avoidance. When healthy a 9s behavior is coming from a place of self-control and internal-archoring and awareness of the greater good, sense of whole, and governing dynamics. In both circumstances it might be a behavior, action, or mentality that is foreign to other types, and they may interpret it as wimpy. But it is actually being propelled by an enormous amount of energy, strength, and concentration to carry it out. Whereas to a healthy 9, sometimes the "non-wimpy" behavior of the other types seems wimpy, because the 9 is thinking "get a grip."

    It’s almost like there is no middle ground because they are built to function at the ends. When unhealthy, they are the wimpiest. When healthy, they are among the strongest, if not the strongest.

    while i have millions of values in but not ready to do much of anything else than friendly influence to better the world with them.
    As mentioned, one’s MBTI will influence it, but regardless, in some of the descriptions I’ve read of 9, it is often pointed out that 9s can handle things that would make the other enneatypes fall apart. I often feel I have an inordinate amount of inner strength, anchoring, and self-control from which to draw on … not sure how to describe it. I’m sure being Fi dom influences it, but I really don’t think being an Fi dom explains all of it. Like my response is based off of something bigger than me, and it isn’t going to be shaken by situational circumstances, and I attribute some of that to the healthier level 9 sensitivity and orientation to the whole and deeper layers of the universe.

I noticed I seem to have an "Oh, it's fine, I don't mind" attitude, which can sometimes look like submissiveness on the outside I suppose.
    This has been an issue my whole life and is actually a rare source of anger for me. That people often mistake kindness for weakness, or desire to harmonize and assist as an invitation to take advantage or take for granted. It pisses me off – really upsets me - that most of the time I can’t just display my natural nature and desire and let my guard down in terms of being gentle, accommodating, loving and flexible without being worried it will be mistaken for weakness and an invitation to exploit.

    certainly not always, but if it gets in the way of you being assertive (as it does for most 9s), yes, kindness definitely becomes a weakness

    My husband would tell you I have no problem being assertive.... Probably comes from being an only child....and kinda bratty (yes, I can admit it).

    Ah, but then you completely fail to notice the strength of the best of 9's! Where we can get what we want, without needing to assert ourselves.

    Now that is a beautiful thing.
