    Yup, this sounds right to me.

Possible conflict with inferior Te, trying to control their outside world with efficient and impersonal systems to feel secure and feel allowed to let their emotions move out. Is it the scenario?
    This sounds about right to me, too. When I withdraw I am dealing with my emotions, but it's not to repress it. Withdrawing allows me to focus and isolate the feelings I'm dealing with so that no additional outside factors can either distract us or add any more emotions into the mix that might confuse things.

    I think you may find INFPs who are type 5s may tend to be heavy on the introverted side. This is certainly the case with me.

    No, that's not possible. Sorry. Wings are adjacent to type.

    Though given that you're heavy on the introvert side and emotional, I'd say your best fit is 5w4. It's actually exceedingly rare for IFP 5s to be 5w6 (the other option).

    INFP and 6 is also not uncommon at all, and they appear less N, more like IxFP or InFP because facts, groundness give them feeling of safety.

    I looked up trifixes for enneagrams and I am pretty sure I'm a 5-9-1 tritype. I may appear a bit emotional on the forums (mostly because I'm more outgoing once I get comfortable), but if you get to know me in real life, you'll find something else. I have certain values about relationships and treating others, but I'm definitely not romantic - so no go on a 5w4.

    Well, wing-Four isn't really about romanticism -- it's about a desire to be unique and independent. Six by comparison is about a desire for safety, security and acceptance.

    I read the type 4 description again, and though some of it rings true, other don't. I'll nix the romanticism label I put on type four in favor of independence as that is definitely a big part of who I am. Ultimately, Imma go with four mostly on the basis that I'm NOT a 6.

    Yeah... you don't need to identify with the whole Four type, after all you're a wing 4, not a 4 outright.

    Fair enough. I could also just not have my entire identity ride on one little number and give it the burden of defining my entire essence.

    But if I did that, then I wouldn't be on this site anymore.

    Nah don't worry, I don't let my type define me... I'm here for entertainment purposes.

    Yeah, just because a 4 wing means "emotional" doesn't mean the 6 wing is "unemotional", it's just that their emotions don't define them. A 6 could feel just as deeply. But I'd honestly find the idea of an INFP 6 quite weird...I mean, the Loyalist? It just sounds so...Fe. But I'm sure it's possible.

    An INFP 8 though? I don't know about that. It pretty much contradicts every aspect of our personality...
