    Default Anger and Enneagram

    Just had a thought, do you think that each Enneagram type displays a unique type of anger, and if so, could you type somebody based solely on his or her type of anger? Here's what I'm thinking. If I'm completely wrong let me know.

    I think 1s would experience exasperated and somewhat explosive anger, it would seem that they would be completely tired of dealing with the problem and would react explosively and sporadically to contradict their predictability and structured nature.

    I think 2s would experience a self-destructive and implosive anger, they would feel emotionally betrayed and fragile and would become guarded to contradict their giving and open nature.

    I think 3s would experience an ambiverted anger, on the extroverted surface it would appear that they reject any hostility aimed towards them as completely barbaric and undeserved, but below the surface would be complete and utter depression with a side of bitter self-doubt to counteract their high image (Narcissistic even) nature.

    I think 4s would experience a self-destructive and implosive anger, but much more vividly than a 2. They would feel as if the whole world had turned against them because they were defective and would either take the path of condemning one's self (the contradiction of their nature) or attempting to dispel others away from themselves so that they can't be emotionally harmed.

    I think 5s would experience an endothermic anger, i.e. the cold and calculating anger, they would deem the world as full of antagonists and would seem to shut down emotionally, imploring how to enact their sweet vengeance upon those who had harmed them, instead of quiet and reserved, they would contradict their nature and take every opportunity to deliver a stab of bitter sarcasm, harsh truth, and malice.

    I honestly have no idea what 6 anger would be like, if you have an idea I'd love to hear it. (surprising since this is considered a common type)

    I think 7s would also experience an endothermic anger, but unlike the five, they would attempt a passive-aggressive stance along the lines of "You killed my mood, I'm going to make your life hell for the next 48 hours." Their attack would seem to be to make an aggressor as depressed and remorseful as possible. (Need more help on this too, probably got this one completely wrong)

    I think 8s would be an explosive anger, but infinitely more intense than a 1. An eight would contradict their nature of guarding themselves emotionally by opening up and letting their built-up of anger fly out of them, this is the type that would break a table in half in front of a crowd of people because someone said something that deeply hurt them.

    I have no idea what 9 anger is like, if you know, do tell. (Do 9s even get angry?)

    My nine friend says that when she gets angry, it's usually at her circumstances and she uses that to get things done (like hw or other things).

    My sister is a nine and she seems like she gets more passively annoyed than angry. Her normal demeanor (around family) is that she acts like she wants to get things done/be efficient/not waste time (it seems as if she has scheduled her life in a productive fashion ...unlike my 9 friend), so if you are slowing her down or something she'll say "hurry up" but in a relatively semi-annoyed tone ...so it's not super effective.


    Edit: Oh, and my roommate (type 6) is constantly angry. Of course, it's not like she will yell at every person who makes her angry (on the outside, she will just get her business done and then leave), but she will come home and complain about it intensely to me. If her underwear rubs her the wrong way (literally) she will complain about it to me. But it's horrible if she is truly angry at someone because ...she will make up anything about you and use that as fuel to be like "I hate this girl she has a squeaky voice ...what a fake!"

    ....I could be wrong about everything her, but to me, a six angry can look like those stereotypical old people who are like "GET OFF MY LAWN!!!!!" And they are bitter about everything.

    gladly.
    for the most part, 7s are a lot more direct than we're made out to be (though we can certainly be more tactical and trickster-y if pushed). anyone can be passive aggression, but overall it's more the realm 6, 9, image types and, to a lesser extent, 5 (oh, and Fe)

    Thanks for the input, that actually makes much more sense. ENTPs are often Type 7 and tend to be exceptionally direct, straightforward, and piercing. I never really notice Type 9's passive-aggressiveness, maybe I just don't know that many of them.

    Oh, for personal typing purposes (and the fact that you are a 7), do you think it is contradictory to be an INTP and a type 7, and do you think that they would mistype as 5s?

    Why does anger seem so foreign to type 9s? I can see the annoyance aspect in place of anger, maybe they conceal their anger so they don't have to deal with escalations.

    I guess the type 6's anger could stem from paranoia. From what I've heard they are the socially nice people who reveal their true emotions/fears/anger to their friends that they can trust.

    Of course they do. They just actively and continually suppress it. It comes out as passive aggressiveness though you won't likely ever get them to admit that.

    This is a 6 that is really angry. They killed his one son and captured a second one (Heath Ledger) just prior to this.

    Lesson learned: Angry 6s are scary, Angry 6s with tomahawks, doubly so.

    I don't want to sound like I know what I am talking about, but I think for 9's, ...I guess so. Some of them don't want to see problems escalate... Still, maybe there are some who do acknowledge their anger.

    Eh, well I think I am a six. I tend to not truly express the anger to the person I am angry with. I don't do it by actively pretending I am NOT experiencing some kind of negative emotion towards the person and actively hiding it to fool the person; I know I am experiencing negative emotions and I am seriously not TRYING to hide it (but with all this head energy ....everything happens inside of my head instead of in the real world). For some reason my brain doesn't think "you should express it and let others know how you truly feel". What I do is more like a paranoia thing: I'll keep on collecting information that fuels my feelings.

    yeah I'll vent to some other person ...but the funny thing is that I don't necessarily mean or want to vent. It just explodes out of me ...but only if it gets to be THAT much (builds up for a quite a while).

    Edit:: ....Actually, I don't know if my experiences are really connected to anger (of course anger is there ...somewhat). This happens more when I start to loathe myself and I find any information in my environment that confirms how much of a shit person I am and then anger/jealousy manifest from that and then I'll be all "...you think I am worthless piece of shit ...don't you?" xD
    You are so arbitrary.

    This sounds a lot like me. I'm all about making people pay for the damage they've caused me. One time when my 4 friend killed my mood on the last day I was visiting I refused to talk to him for 3 months even though he kept apologizing and saying he didn't mean to (which was bs). Other times if he would kill my mood while I was playing a game with him and his family I would antagonize him for the rest of the day. Basically I can be a huge bitch when provoked. Although if I'm like releasing anger that's been built up with someone for ages then I will let loose on them and tell them everything they've done wrong for however long it was I've known them, even if the anger was technically drawn out by something not as big.
