    Exactly.

    So, to bring us directly back on topic:

    - 3s are 3EE
    - 7s are 7SE
    - 8s are 8IE

    Each is its center's manifestation in the extrinsic/external world.

    But 3s are from the Extrinsic/Heart center, while 7s are from the Systemic/Head center.

    The specific differences this causes I leave for the mortals to flesh out.

    ^ Interesting.

    I think the biggest difference seems to me that 7s are far more rough around the edges than 3s, who are compulsively polished. 7 will always prioritize enjoyment while 3 will always prioritize success. If they turn up looking like they just got off a rollercoaster, they're a 7.

    I think the triads are also very revealing:

    3s are in the heart triad and very much focused on the image they present to others while 7s are in the head triad and focused on their monkey mind activity which they are as too much fond of as 3s are of their own image.

    E7 seek out how to best create their own emergent games. "i am awesome because i am doing (what i want to do)" explore experiences - to figure out who the fuck they are. get bored by success but experience insight in failure. surprise them. tease them positively
    I agree with this. I would also like to add that 7's often are in their head a lot more than 3's.

    I don't know about other 3s, but I spend a lot of time in my head comparing myself to others -- asking myself if the person I'm trying to please would like me better if I'm that other person OR asking myself what is it about me that I have that the other person doesn't, such that it puts me in a better light for the person I'm trying to please.

    That's not what I mean by "always in their head". This should clear up what I mean. Read this article...

    Molina, a close student of Naranjo's, combines the enneagram with the Hartman Value Inventory.

    The Hartman Value Inventory was developed by Robert S. Hartman, a holocaust survivor, logician, and philosopher.

    It attempts to provide an objective explanation of values, and posits that there are three realms of value: the Intrinsic, the Extrinsic, and the Systemic.

    Each of these realms of value correlates to one of the Enneagram's centers: Instrinsic-Gut, Extrinsic-Heart/Image, Systemic-Head.

    So, all types within each center get their first letter from their center:

    - 2s, 3s, and 4s are 2Ex, 3Ex, and 4Ex
    - 5s, 6s, and 7s are 5Sx, 6Sx, and 7Sx
    - 8s, 9s, and 1s are 8Ix, 9Ix, and 1Ix

    Then, within each center, each of three three types manifests that particular center's version of one of the three value centers.

    And that's where each type gets its second letter from. As such:

    - 2s, 3s, and 4s are 2ES, 3EE, and 4EI
    - 5s, 6s, and 7s are 5SI, 6SS, and 7SE
    - 8s, 9s, and 1s are 8IE, 9II, and 1IS

    Not exactly English, but the system is actually not that difficult to understand.

    I continue proselytizing about it on here because Naranjo highly approved of the way in which it further clarifies and fleshes out the Enneagram system, I wholeheartedly agree with him, and, unfortunately, not many people are aware of it.
    Why are the members of the Attachment Group the only ones that are connected to their respective triads twice, when they're supposed to be the most detached from their triads?

    For example, 9 is at the center of the gut triad, which has been labelled Intrinsic. If 9 is double-intrinsic, why are they said to be the most out of touch their gut?

    This is one question I've had myself, and one question for which I've never felt I had quite a sufficient answer.

    I don't have a strong enough understanding of why whomever (Riso & Hudson? Others?) has posited that types at the center of their instinctual triad are the least connected with their center say this is supposedly so.

    Personally, as a 6, I don't feel particularly disconnected with my thoughts.*

    *I just feel like I've got tons of thoughts, and that, frankly, my thinking is more pure than, say, the thinking of a 5, which, imo, is improperly connected with their gut (i.e., my thinking is more purely systemic, and thus objective, whereas their thinking gets mixed up with their gut [i.e., the Intrinsic], and thus often becomes tainted with a lack of objectivity).

    Do 9s actually feel that disconnected from their gut?

    Do 3s feel that disconnected from their heart/image?

    Naranjo said of Riso & Hudson that they added stuff to the theory that he didn't particularly agree with.

    I don't know if this is one of those things, or what.

    Also (and this is my last thought on the matter [and perhaps the answer is as simple as this]): being in the center of one's triad is like being in the eye of the hurricane -- while you might be right in the middle of it, you're, at the same time, oddly, in a certain way, not experiencing it.

    in other words
    - 3s: heart>head=gut
    - 7s: head>heart>gut
    - 8s: gut>heart>head

    I disagree with this. most 7s are head>gut>heart and most 8s are gut>head>heart (7 and 8 are the furthest distance from the heart center and the most out of touch with it)

    E7s cope with anxiety by starting new projects, generating ideas, and temporarily embracing the present moment. If they perceive something negative happening, they'll, at most, apply a band-aid sort of fix to it without really diving too deep into an analysis of the problem. This is a bit less prevalent in the 7w8, but only in the sense that they'll steamroll in order to start a new project.

    E3s cope with negativity by making a current project seem like a positive thing, embellishing what's already there instead of actively avoiding it. 3w4s are more expressive about the negativity they perceive, as though they expect others to patch things up for them a bit in contrast with the 3w2 who will nearly go out of their way to mend a problem.

    Both types tend to be extraverted and both types can almost seem oblivious of the cynical side of life, but the difference is that 7s tend to emphasize "things" and possibilities while 3s emphasize themselves and others. Most of the 7s I've known don't want to hassle with people because they'll eventually recognize that people are messy and unpredictable; perhaps they'll optimistically rationalize that people are "simple", as though human beings are so common place that they're easily understood. On the other hand, an E3 will stick with you until they feel like you've acknowledged that their efforts have merit.
