    For the most part I like type 7's. The 7's I know are fun to be around, have a great sense of humor, and don't take life too seriously. On the downside, I don't like 7's when they are unhealthy and end up being unreliable, or overly impulsive and deny all problems.

    Twos aren't necessarily friendly, especially with the one wing. I like them all right, but am drained when I feel that one is up to something, as if concealing what's really going on inside is a strategy that will work forever.

    I detest the two inside me, however. Think the insidious connotations of the phrase, "I was just doing my job."

    I don't know if I agree fully with that statement. Perhaps I am wrong about my enneagram, but I'm well aware that my 'image' is a creation. I generally try to not create an image; especially one that fits in with a particular genre or trend.

    Btw. Nice to see you still frequent these parts, Marm. Miss the cat avatars.

    I think for the four the image is more of an idealized self- so there is this 'you' that's the perfect you- the you that you would be if you weren't so fucked up. The perfect you- what you would be if you actually lived to your potential- is the real you. Meanwhile, this person you are in the mundane existence of life is the false self. It's like... there's a bird in a cage. It looks out the window to see another bird, flying around, and the bird in the cage thinks, "That's me, not this thing... here."

    Fours envy because they think others live a life of ideal circumstances, that they were given all the things needed to thrive, while the four wasn't. By extension, if the four was given the things others got, she would be different, she would be the perfect her. So in a way reality is fake and fantasy is real.

    This makes much more sense to me and reaffirms my 4-ness.

    I like 7s as long as they respect me for who I am. The thing that's cool about them is that they can actually get me out of a funky mood and help me put things in the proper perspective.

    Actually, my problem might be that I find it very hard to leave 7 scattered-ness.

    I don't mind 9s, they are often some of the wisest people I've known.

    I have no love for it. Many things I do not like about myself lie there.

    As for twos: I don't think I know any. I think my mother may be one but if she is then she likes going to the eight a lot. I would suspect that they would be very good at giving me only what I don't actually need or want.

    No, however in the moment of disintegration it can feel like a greater truth than being in normal/healthy ranges. I can understand the fears, doubts and worries that a (phobic) 6 must live through as a normal state of mind, however when my 9 default is trust that others have no ill will without cause and have faith that everything will work out it is tiring to always be on edge, second guessing, seeing deceit under the surface, and as a core 9 my disintegration involves all the low sides of a 9, the narcotisation and numbing out of life and/or the over analysing with no action. Thing is, when doubt is your first reaction, it feels like some kind of truth, like you're not having the wool pulled over your eyes, that aspect on it's own without the 9 numbing out isn't something I intently dislike, it's just tiring because I push a lot of it back on myself and encourages me to disconnect.


    Do you feel tempted to slip into it just because you think it's more effective or easy or attractive than your integration point?
    No, however I do have a connection to 4 and the idea of picking at an emotional scab when I'm already down can appeal to me. Disintegrating isn't easier, attractive and it's certainly not effective, however pulling yourself back up takes effort so it may seem easier in the moment.


    Do you tend to like or dislike people who are the same enneagram as your disintegration point?
    I don't recall ever meeting a 6 I disliked, there is something about them I find inherently likable, especially those who are more phobic than counter-phobic.


    Bonus question for 9s: how do you feel about 6s?
    They aiirite.

    Sounds scary to be a six.
