    Default Do I Have a 7-Fix?

    For a while I've settled on 5 as my head fix, given my high tolerance for solitude and penchant for "dark" subjects. But I'm wondering if I actually have a 7 fix.

    - I dabble in a lot of things -- ideas, books, places, even religions -- but I don't often focus that deeply in any of them. If I sense that it's no longer bringing me closer to "The Truth", I'll move to something else. For example, I've lost count of the number of books I've started and never finished or the number of times I've started some self-improvement project, only to drop it a month later. Lord knows if I was able to actually settle and commit to something, I'd be about 50 lbs. lighter, 100x more literate, a vegan, and an HTML genius, among other things. Self-discipline, I'm embarrassed to admit, is not my strong suit.

    - I identify slightly more with frustration than competence (even though i very much value intelligence). 1 and 4 are almost always in the top 3 types on every test I take.

    - There have been times when i do get deeply into something and it occupies every minute of my time. I have spent hours upon hours playing video games or surfing porn and doing nothing else.

    - Unfortunately, the "dabbling" also applies to people. If a friend or acquaintance is no longer bringing me to some "higher place" or to some place of depth, then I don't keep in contact with them. Which sucks, because if I felt differently, I'd probably be an awesome networker, which would help my job prospects. But I'm a junky for authenticity with people.

    So what do you all think?

    @Cloud of Thunder
    you're not conceited enough to have a 7 fix. the 7 fix brings a sense of hedonism, egocentrism, flamboyance (not necessarily in a gay or even sexual way, but we have a penchant for that which is bold, colorful and somewhat outrageous) and excitability, none of which I see in you.

    - I identify slightly more with frustration than competence (even though i very much value intelligence). 1 and 4 are almost always in the top 3 types on every test I take.
    you are a 1 (though I could see 9w1 as well). 1s are a frustration type

    - secondary Sx
    - Ni (Ni is often a very obsessive function)
    - most people do this

    PS: imo 1w9 Sp/Sx works much better for you (much better than Sexual 3/4 did. you're mellow, down to earth and the furthest thing from a drama queen)

    Yeah I said in a similar thread on PC if some of this behavior can be attributed to Sx/Sp. I'm still unsure.

    you don't seem to have the internal conflict of a Sexual 1. Sexual 1s are highly nitpicky of their partners, almost to the point of being controlling. Sx doms of all types are more obsessive and conflicted than I see in you (particularly Sx/Sp). you're much more low maintenance, mind your own business and display a sense of internal calm.

    this character is a good example

    This all sounds like sexual instinct stuff to me. I think the sexual instinct can mimic seven. I often test really high on seven on enneagram tests for that reason (and the fact that I'm a fellow frustration type). I relate to everything you say as an introverted sx/sp (except the potential of being an awesome networker. No matter what I did this would never happen. Is that your Fe talking?)

    What @Elfboy says here sounds more like 9w1. A mellow sp/sx 1 INFJ?

    Regarding the networking, whatever social ease I've gained came from a great deal of conscious effort. In truth, I really couldn't be bothered with it.

    Yeah, I agree with Elf Boy kinda. I don't really know you, but 7 seems a little more flamboyant than what you described. It's this like constant overflow of cool stuff that you're just so excited about. Very experimental and enthusiastic.
    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.

    wtf?
    Weren't you an e4 when I first joined 2010? I forget which e-type you were trying to fit to whatever image you were trying to portray at the time. I'm growing tired of seeing it done to e7 though. (I'm just now remembering your e8 'I'm just like Anakin Skywalker' phase.)


    @Cloud of Thunder I would imagine you have a 5 or 6 fix.

    like 90% of NFPs who are Enneagram noobs, yes.

    I forget which e-type you were trying to fit to whatever image you were trying to portray at the time. I'm growing tired of seeing it done to e7 though.
    narcissism is at the core of type 7. I bring this up frequently because of the rampant stereotypes about them. 7s are not the bright, bubbly socialites less credible descriptions make them out to be. yes, many of us are externally nice, but underneath it's all about acquisition of pleasure. Self Preservation 7s are ruthless hedonists and businessmen while Sexual 7s are darker and more 4-ish. it's only the Social 7, which Naranjo refers to as the counter gluttony 7 which most descriptions portray accurately.

    (I'm just now remembering your e8 'I'm just like Anakin Skywalker' phase.)
    irrelevant (and I don't think Anakin is an 8. I think he's an unhealthy 2).

    naturally, you're welcome to question my type, but given you typed me both as a 9w8 and Sp last, forgive me for being skeptical

    at the end of the day, the way to find your type is to ask "what the fuck is wrong with me?". the description that captures this is your type
