    I take back what I said about 4's being wimpy. I think in some contexts, they can be very strong (any emotionally stressing situation, for example).

    @Chaotic Harmony
    then you are an integrated 9. integrated 9s are not wimpy

    @Fluffywolf
    we're not talking about the best of 9s or the "best" of any type. we're talking about types in the average range (which most people are in) and average to lower range 9s tend to be wimpy

    As for poll, I voted none since wimpyness is not defined by Enneagram type, but I will agree that 9's, thinking back specifically about my younger years, can really walk into invisible walls all the time. :P

    I think wimpiness is related to enneagram type. a phobic 6 for instance, is going to struggle with this; a 3 is not. they are a naturally assertive, productive type. every enneagram type has problems, don't get me wrong, but some are related to wimpiness and some are not (that 3 probably struggles with vanity, running himself ragged on the treadmill of over achievement and failing to experience the emotional depth of other types)

    agreed, I might be wimpy in my mind but I'm good at staying strong in difficult situations where a lot of other people would be freaking out. plus the 4 tendency to put myself down makes me very resistant against others criticizing or insulting me.

    Now that is a beautiful thing.
    Hehe, yeah.

    Just keep in mind that no one is just their core. The adjacent wings always have a role to play.

    eg. For those who think 9's are wimpy are forgetting that 1's and 8's aren't --- and 9 being in the centre means that they have motivations from both wings. Same with 4's [who get some flavour of 3], as with 6's who get added strength from 7 and so on.

    So ... until and unless someone believes they are a wimp, they probably aren't. They just haven't been made to believe that they aren't

    I disagree with this on principle. See the quote in my signature. If someone does not have a fear that they're confronting, how is that brave? Is it brave to do something if you don't think there's a real possibility of something going wrong? I'm stealing this analogy from the movie 'Angus,' but if Superman goes up against a line of bullets, is he brave? No, because he knows he can't get hurt. But if a regular person would do something because of a greater ideal in which they believe they have a good chance of being shot, that would be really brave. Bravery can only exist if the person believes there is a danger but does it anyway.

    Do you mean OCD or OCPD? There is a difference.
