    Default Everyone thinks they're w8.

    Please, stop assuming you've got an 8 wing just because you have an independent streak.

    I'm not too hot on this whole "my wing can be anywhere and not just next to me" idea, but when I see everyone claiming to be a w8 it really peeves me.

    8s are statistically the type that suffers the most mistypes, please take a minute to think about it.

    Could anyone link me to somewhere that this new "any wing" ideology is coming from?

    Heh I haven't studied much about ennegrams, but I know I have balanced wings (6 & 8). Surely there are a lot of people out there with wing 8.

    I'm a 9w1.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    I've thought to be 7w8, and it's because of no fad, no fashion or anything such. I don't give much credit to the enneagram theory, but it's been consistent enough lately for me to decide myself as 7w8 anyway. More consistent than say, MBTI - where I've tried to decide myself on the both ENxP. Anyways, yes I'd say my 7w8 is genuine and no result of a "fashion", movement or anything like that.

    That means, as genuine as it gets. It's still subject to misinterpretation, something I find plentiful in the domain of enneagram.

    Just out of interest what make you think most people "assume" they are w8 ?


    ---------------------

    Falcarius does not know his Ennegram type as it comes back different each time: 7w6, 5w4, and 9w1 maybe. But no Falcarius is not an w8, that would be totally asinine.

    Hmm. The reason why I was considering w8 because it's crazy how many people complain about my aggressiveness/mood swings in real life.

    Can I just be a 5w9 and leave it at that?

    There. No 8s involved. Though I'd be up for a game of crazy eights, if you'd like...

    Well, you can take my opinion to vouche for the legitimacy of the wing from anywhere theory. I picked the Enneagarm to pieces and concluded that the ordering of the types was totally arbitrary, and as such, there was no practical basis for the wings always being adjacent.
