    So you're not deflecting, Mr Ronin Attorney?

    Ok. I'll stop, you can have your thread back.

    Can I do it? Yes, but it is difficult, the people are many, and time is short.

    I was deeply conflicted as to whether I was a 5 or a 9 for about an hour there. But then I remembered my obsession with H.P. Lovecraft and his occult mythologies. Definitely a 5.

    Why is that?

    Type 9 here.

    I know I'm type 9 but that hasn't helped me. I don't trust other peoples' ability to handle themselves, so I'm always tiptoeing.

    If I didn't do this, I feel like I'd probably have a nervous breakdown. One of the things that always frazzles me the most is looking back to something I said and wondering if it was too offensive.

Lovecraft true) than nines are, who prefer more "harmonious" systems and theories.

    Indeed, now that I think about it, I am always drawn to the dark, and the tragic, and the horrific, dissonance over harmony, dark over light, and sad over happy. So, in that way, I am more a five than a nine.

    I read a lot of horror/mystery novels (including a Lovecraft phase in college) and prefer a tragedy to a happy ending, but I don't think that makes me a 5.

    I wasn't suggesting that that's the only reason why I am a five, but as I was reading through profiles of the two types in order to find which one I related to more, that comparison was suggested as a quick tiebreaker. It had the effect of silencing my cognitive dissonance and self-doubt for a while, and so I was satisfied.

    This is the one jarring thing. You're kinda dark for a 9.
