    As one becomes more mature and self-aware, he begins to recognize his own motivations--which can be represented by any lil' spot on the Enneagram's continuum of (and between) types. It's not a far leap to say that the process of digging that rabbit hole eventually pinpoints a wing, for those who are actually more flavored by one. The shovel of introspection takes some time to get there. Sure, recognition in the 20s could be about right.

    I've always been motivated by value. Found that the best way to acquire it is to stand out from the crowd--to embrace idiosyncracy and uniqueness--rather than compete in the same games that they do. Blammo; that's pretty clearly 3w4.

    @prplchknz I believe it's a very legit question. Can you see either of the following in yourself (even if just a bit)?:

    A) Obsessive tendency to study or delve into subjects that interest you and tune out the world in order to do so. Looking at things analytically, beating a dead horse and otherwise over-thinking. Comfort in one's own mind and struggle with avarice.

    B) Desiring a large variety of experiences and having large amount of energy to pursue them. A tendency to distract one's self from introspection or inner work by staying busy with exciting and stimulating activities. Comfort in the world and struggle with gluttony.

    There you are then, 6w5 (which I agree with from what I've seen you post).

    Was far more into avarice than flattery even as a young one.

    This theory would lead me to believe I was actually a 5 if I weren't so skeptical.

    I feel like w7 has always been a part of me and my type, very integrated. Part of my security as a 6 includes 7ish needs/desires like variety, novelty, ability to escape, and positivity.

    Because I'm counter - gluttony, I relate more to the 5 description here. So that's why it took so long to even acknowledge my 7 wing.

    I learned that my form of distraction/ escape is actually tuning out the world by delving into intrests. Typology being a prime example lol.

    Forgive me for being aghast at this but I do not understand. By definition 5 and 7 have opposite anxiety points (5 of the outside world, and 7 of their inner thoughts/feelings) so how does the above make sense? It sounds to me like a fancy way of saying you have a 5 wing but calling it something else entirely. I do not mean to be abrasive (truly, I'm learning like anyone else) but would you mind providing a link or book source on which you are basing the theory of "counter gluttony". As far as I have read, six is the only type with a "counter" aspect (and counter phobia does not result in 6 looking like another type).

    Start it at about 6:50!!

    I'm the person he's describing. I sacrifice gluttony. I sacrifice the short term (tert. Se) for the long term (aux Ni, ruthless Te) ... it also translates to this "Anti Pig" that he talks about. It is me.

    It sounds like a 1, looks like a 5, but is a counter 7.

    And I'm not 100% 7. I am 100% 6...and about 98% counter gluttony 7.

    So I'm 6w7.

    And no offense was taken
