I think an 8w7 and I would probably have crazy sex and then kill each other. But yeah... 8w9. It actually kinda sounds better to me than 9w8. I think I need a strong woman, and an 8 would provide that. But I don't need a mindless warrior like an 8w7. The 9-wing would soften the edges of an 8 in just the way I need, cuz, while I need that strong woman, cuz I can be a blunt, insensitive asshole who needs someone who can take a straight dose of truth to the dome, I also need someone who can take the edge off, cuz the truth is, I'm not actually an insensitive asshole, I just communicate a bit like one. She could take care of the kids, I wouldn't have to worry about her being able to handle herself. She'd be able to tell me when to shut the fuck up and that I'm being an asshole or an idiot. I'd be able to argue back and not worry about breaking her by being honest. I dunno. There's something to that.

    2) If you had to be an enneagram type other than your own, which would it be? (You must choose a core other than your own, but you can pick the wing if you'd like.)
    I voted 7w8. My first thought was 8, but there is enough 8 in me and in others around me that I fully understand the ups and downs of the type. I have some 8-ish flaws of my own.

    I wouldn't want to be a 1, 2, 3 (for the same reason as 8), 4, or 6 (because of my wing). So, the next two options were 7w8 or 9w8. I used to type at 9w8 and I didn't like it at the time, but it kind of grew on me. But there's too many 9 flaws that are too similar to the ones I already have.

    So 7w8 it is. I have a strong connection to 7, and I have 7 coping mechanisms, whether healthy or not, and I could see myself being one, under different life circumstances.

    3) If you could imagine an ideal SO, what enneagram type would he or she be?
    Probably an Id-type, maybe a super-ego type but that's a stretch. I wouldn't want someone too similar to myself. How boring would that be.

    4) If you had to have one child, and you could choose his/her enneagram type, what would it be?
    1, 3 or 7, I think. I wouldn't wish 5 on my worst enemy, let alone my child.

    1) What is your enneagram core type and tritype?
    4w5

    I don't put stock into tritype, but: 4w5, 5w4, 1w9

    2) If you had to be an enneagram type other than your own, which would it be? (You must choose a core other than your own, but you can pick the wing if you'd like.)

    9w1

    They are easy to like & seem content, two things I feel I lack. Of course, I've seen some of the inside of unhealthy 9s, and it's not pretty. Can't confuse complacency with contentment or obsequiousness with truly being likable.

    Any type in the 3-6-9 triad might make for an easier time in life, well at least when it comes to connecting with people, which goes a long way.

    3) If you could imagine an ideal SO, what enneagram type would he or she be?

    This is hard... I'd say 3w4, but it didn't work out with one so well. The self-deception & image focus can get ridiculous.
    2w3 might be good, as long as they don't need too much or invalidate my experiences by always needing to be the best/the most (one uppers!).
    8s sound like a passionate pairing, but also like we might kill each other.
    I like 5s, but they can also be difficult. Funny how high maintenance they can seem.
    6s & I can make each other sooo insecure, but there's an ease of communicating & a kind of mutual understanding in being "reactive".
    I feel like I could really respect a 1, but they might be too rigid also.
    I enjoy 7s, but hate when I have to be the responsible one.
    9s are great for friends, but I want to shake them sometimes & they want me to stop shaking stuff up.

    I'm really open to them all.

    4) If you had to have one child, and you could choose his/her enneagram type, what would it be?
    Not a 7! I've seen that go down with my sister.... if the kid is unhealthy, prepare for a lot of drama, demands, and stress.
    Maybe a 1w2 - obedient & pleasant.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    The reason I chose 7 (either wing) is that it's also a mind triad core. I've already got a decently strong connection to it, and the kind of thinking that a 7 does, while a bit scattered, is also very useful - and the core would lead me to seek an interesting life.

    Everyone's got faults. That isn't a significant deterrent.
    Thinking must serve the thinker.
