[QUOTE=SearchingforPeace;2551930]Seeker just means seeker. Mundane and or profound. Sure, unhealthy Seekers get lost and confused in ugly and pitiful ways. I hate being in full doubt mode. I much prefer the peaceful and content, but looking for higher knowledge mode when I am healthier.
But the unhealthy mode helps us to question things we never questioned before and see better. It helps us break out of bad patterns and dynamics.
Searching for Peace, I figured you were probably a Nine from your name and what little I just read from you here. And now I see that you're not only a 9 but a 9w8. And since the MAIN 'deadly' of the 9 is narcosis, and synergiizing with the 8 wing there is a peculiar grounded unmovable stubborness around it, I have little doubt (no pun intended) that seeing yourself as a 'Seeker' is helpful to you, because it helps you to MOVE out of the entrenched inertia of that type/wing configuration.
But it doesn't do that for most triple doubters because they're ALREADY moving. They're moving the way water moves in ripples when a stone is thrown into it. That is, in concentric circles going nowhere because of CONSTANT disruptions. Fluid, unsubstantial, HOPELESS movement to NOWHERE.
My ex-husband is 9w1-4w3-6w7 sx/soc. Three close friends are 4w3-6w7-9w1 soc/sx, 9w1-6w7-4w5 sp/sx, and 9w8-6w7-4w5 sx/sp. With the last one, the EXTREME Fourishness due to the wing type of the 4 fix and the sx/sp stacking (and also the placement of the 4 fix as SOCIAL 4 if we want to ascribe tritype fix-stacking correlations by order of the fixes, which though it sounds implausible, in reality it actually seems to work) creates a VERY Fourish, a very WATERY, elusive 9w8.
These people will 'seek' their way into a black hole FOREVER if they think of themselves primarily as Seekers, because it CONNOTES seekers after Truth...and they are flailing about like a fish on a hook over the SIMPLEST everyday occurrences. There is no QUEST. They're just lost in doubt.
Again: ALL the Fauvre titles, that is the one-word labels for the tritypes, are insufficient. There are BETTER ways of characterizing these tritype combinations. And the proof of the pudding is that whatever Gurdjieff was, he was VERY far from 4-6-9, but he was a QUINTESSENTIAL seeker. And MANY more can be named who were quintessential seekers who were far from 4-6-9.
Ergo, it is not the best label for the 4-6-9 tritype. Unless I'm mistaken and Gurdjieff was ALSO a triple doubter and triple sensitive. And aldo the Buddha. But they were probably an 8 and a 5, possibly both 3-fixed, and Gurdjieff definitely not 9-fixed.
Please pay ATTENTION. I've tried to say that when people say they're the Seeker, they're thinking of Seeker After TRUTH. And in far more cases than not, it prevents them from seeing the severity of the problem. The connotations of the title Seeker, inherently GLORIFY a big PROBLEM.
Again: you're a 9w8. Blessed be the non-conflict avoidant. You HAVE 8. Not to mention a very forceful, assertive stacking. Most triple doubters DON'T. Seeking answers to EVERYTHING doesn't HELP them because everything doesn't NEED to be questioned and to question everything is DANGEROUS for them.
This is getting convoluted. I've stated the case clearly. If you think questioning EVERYTHING is really so fabulous, why don't you try questioning whether Seeker is really such a fabulous label to get stuck in the heads of people who are routinely PARALYZED by CRIPPLING doubt and whether there are in reality more people like that in the 4-6-9 tribe than people like you.
