    It seems unlikely to me, although I may be wrong, that you really have a tie for first on both variables. Suppressive and turbulent are quite different, as are anticipating and pursuing. Could you maybe give a little more information as to why you think you're tied on these traits?

    The reason I'm not responding to you feeling like a 1 or an 8 is that in this system, the numbers literally don't mean anything more than the intersection of the two variables. If you are 8-like, it means you are pursuing/turbulent-like. If you are 1-like, it means you are anticipating/suppressive-like. But if you really were tied in both variables, you would be just as 3-like and just as 6-like as 1-like and 8-like.
    When using the numbers 1 and 8, I used them as shorthand for my limited understanding of the archetypal descriptions. The "tie", if there is one, between variables is probably not that I am between the two, but that I spent enough time with one or the other, that I don't see one as a stronger preference.

    In MBTI, I have distinct preferences for I over E, N over S, slight preferences for T over F, and J over P. And I feel those preferences pretty distinctly. In function I definitely prefer Ni to the rest.

    I don't have a strong enough feel for the exact application of these terms to feel so distinct with this enneagram model.

    Interestingly, I took two tests on Magic's link with the following added ambiguity:

    typescore type behavior motivation
    1 45 I must be perfect and good to be happy.
    5 40 I must be knowledgable and independent to be happy.
    8 38 I must be strong and in control to be happy.
    9 35 I must be peaceful and easy to get along with to be happy.
    2 32 I must be helpful and caring to be happy.
    7 30 I must be high and entertained to be happy.
    6 29 I must be secure and safe to be happy.
    3 27 I must be impressive and attractive to be happy.
    4 19 I must avoid painful feelings to be happy.

    this 're-do' of the enneagram shows you lack an understanding of the symbol itself.

    The standard "Enneagram of personality" typing system uses the enneagram symbol as a tool.. this version doesn't. The name "Enneagram" is kept as shorthand to represent the personality system, but it has nothing to do with the symbol like the original does.

    The symbol is superfluous and non-functional, and all aspects that adhered to it were illogical. But then, greed summed it up pretty well anyhow.

    I do admit that the change makes using the name "enneagram" a little strange, but right now it's a carry over reference. If we changed the name right off the bat, than no one would even realize we were talking about a change based on the Enneagram.

    I guess we can stick to the name "poriferancegram". Gram means line or lines, so what number is poriferance exactly?

    I love the way you Ti dominants can create your own systems of theory. Most of the attempts I have seen on here have been pretty impressive. Brilliant work fellas.

    I love the new system Poriferan. I read it all... but to be honest I couldn't pay attention the whole time try as I might, because my brain is not thereotical-y enough.

    I do think the old Enneagram system was quite illogical.

    Can you help me figure out what I am, PLEASE, PLEASE, brilliant NT?

    To start with I'm a 6. What do I do to figure out what else?!

    Agree 100%. I enjoy reading theories from INTP and learning about them as well. They are quite the eye opener.
