    Default Could these statements be related to Enneagram type?

    There is a therapist I've been going to, that brings unconscious fears and negative beliefs to the surface and gets rid of them, to enrich mental health. It just came to me that these might be related to Enneagram type/instinctual variant, and it might reveal what that is for me. So if they could be related at all, to which type might it be? If it is unrelated, fair enough.

    "Fear of not being good enough." - This one keeps coming up very frequently, it is probably very deep-set in my psyche (perhaps since I was young).
    "Feel unappreciated."
    "Fear of needing to be with others."
    "Feel unworthy of nurturance."

    Sounds kinda 2-ish to me. Just a thought though.
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    I think they could apply to any type, but recurrent feelings of worthlessness are usually associated with the image triad.

    I've never met any INTJ 2s, 3s, or 4s. Maybe you're a 5 disintegrating to 2 or a 6 disintegrating to 3. But, again, I'd think that those are pretty common fears.
