    I was actually thinking of starting a thread like this but you've saved me the trouble, so thanks.

    As I said to you last night, I don't really like the idea of 3s. The prospect of integrating to 3 also seems quite distasteful to me because they're so frequently portrayed as shallow, disingenuous, and narcissistic. However, cultivating better self-worth and a genuine interest in achievement is probably very good advice for most 9s. I've enjoyed being integrated whenever I've been integrated. It's quite liberating.

    I can't think of any 3s I'm personally close to. The closest I can think of is a college friend with a strong 3 fix but I'm not convinced its her primary type. I didn't find her presence empowering or anything. Mostly, I just felt sorry for her because she was struggling with so many expectations and wanted so many things without being sure if she wanted them. I don't know, getting to a place where you've accomplished and acquired all this stuff and still maybe feeling kinda hollow inside and like there's still something missing sounds awful. I feel a lot of sympathy for people in that place even though I dislike what they pursue.

    I think I'd have a hard time getting myself to like a 3 at first but once I'd managed to do it, things would be smoother. In contrast, I find it easier to like 6s but the longterm relationship is much more bumpy because their anxiety rubs off on me and I find myself thinking the same way. I have actual experience with 6s though, and none with 3s.

    If you're unsure of your integration point, here's a chart for reference.



    The arrows indicate the dynamics of integration and disintegration.
    This chart shows disintegration points.

    And, no, I don't like 2s.

    I guess 3 is more powerful and less wishy-washy, so sure, why not?

    The green arrows begin at a normal type and point towards a respective integration point. The purple arrows begin at a normal point and point towards a respective disintegration point. Sorry for the confusion.

    Healthy 1 is like my highest ideal, so yes, I suppose I do.

    Im actually more partial to my disintegration point, but I can see the merits of a healthy 1 for sure. The average and especially unhealthy ones though...I find it hard to shut out their judging voices so I tend to keep quiet and avoid them
