    We have sometimes called the Nine the crown of the Enneagram because it is at the top of the symbol and because it seems to include the whole of it. Nines can have the strength of Eights, the sense of fun and adventure of Sevens, the dutifulness of Sixes, the intellectualism of Fives, the creativity of Fours, the attractiveness of Threes, the generosity of Twos, and the idealism of Ones. However, what they generally do not have is a sense of really inhabiting themselves—a strong sense of their own identity.

    Ironically, therefore, the only type the Nine is not like is the Nine itself. Being a separate self, an individual who must assert herself against others, is terrifying to Nines. They would rather melt into someone else or quietly follow their idyllic daydreams.

    Red, a nationally known business consultant, comments on this tendency:

    “I am aware of focusing on other people, wondering what they are like, how and where they live, etc. In a relationship with others, I often give up my own agenda in favor of the other person’s. I have to be on guard about giving in to other’s demands and discounting my own legitimate needs.”
    I relate to all that.
    Act your age not your enneagram number.

    I was looking at the interwebs last night, and came across Renee Zelwegger and Sandra Bullock as type 9s. Apparently, Bill Clinton is one too (though it seems to me that this may be a new thing for Billy-Bob, I'm not certain). Still, I've always liked them all (especially Renee with a few pounds on her, but even without, just wow). So humble.
    Love is the point.

    I think I'm a 9. But I go back and forth between 9 and 6. It's weird - it's like I'm a 6 in theory, but I have all the Type 9 fixations. My general response to problems or "noise" in my life is something akin to "la la la la la." But when I'm considering ideas or problems that fall outside the realm of actual things in my life that I have to deal with, I become a 6. I guess I'm a 9 in action and a 6 in thought.

    I don't know about nine. It kind of fits but I have zero fear of loss and separation. Which is supposed to be the core fear of a nine. I'll have to rake my brains for evidence.
