    Default Addiction and Enneatype

    In case someone hasn't seen it yet, here's an Enneagram Institute page linking the 9 types with various types of addictions.
    http://www.enneagraminstitute.com/ad...ersonality.asp

    I'm not sure it's exactly complete but then it depends on what one would consider an addiction. Is the internet an addiction? Or how about porn addiction?

    Consider this:
    "Type 5 The Investigator
    Poor eating and sleeping habits due to minimizing needs. Neglecting hygiene and nutrition. Lack of physical activity. Psychotropic drugs for mental stimulation and escape, narcotics for anxiety."

    The first sentence isn't an addiction per se. And how about video game addiction and type 5s?

    The 8 and 9 addiction descriptions sounded pretty accurate for me.

    I can identify with under-eating out of self-control/repressed anger and alcohol to relieve tension mentioned for types 1 and 9, but the descriptions are pretty general overall.

    I would consider myself in the healthy range and I can identify with these.

    Type 4 The Individualist
    Over-indulgence in rich foods, sweets, alcohol to alter mood, to socialize, and for emotional consolation. Lack of physical activity. Bulimia. Depressants. Tobacco, prescription drugs, or heroin for social anxiety. Cosmetic surgery to erase rejected features.

    9 fits pretty well too, and 5

    That's because 9 has some of the same categories as 4, such as "lack of physical activity."

    "Type 5 The Investigator

    THC tends to make everything pretty crimson & clover just like the Tommy James song.
