    I could make a huge post here, but I have had too much gin and lemonade.

    MacGuffy, be a 9. I feel that energy from you, so who cares what Morgan says. (Although I enjoy Morgan's provocative statements in an effort to challenge the topic at hand.)

    It's a distinct warmth with distance, I want to connect with that warmth yet it is elusive. You remain uncommitted and indistinct. You play at the edges yet refrain from really jumping in and engaging a topic. This is what INTP 9's feel like to me.

    wolfy and blackcat, as ISFPs, feel warmer yet they are even more elusive in other ways. They don't play a cat and mouse kind of game, pretending to engage then backing away. They remain observers, preferring to keep an aloof distance. INTP's (to me) feel more of a push and pull effect, wanting to engage but then pulling back.

    OK, that's enough for now. Be a 9. Heck we're not avoidant, we just strive to achieve harmony, align with peace, want to facilitate communication. Yet we engage when it's important to engage. In an INTP, this comes across in a more constrained dynamic than an INFP, because I have Fi for fuel, but it's still there.

    You didn't read very carefully, or else your gin is too strong: I knew MacGuffin was a 9 before he did.

    He's also not an INTP, but I'll let that one go.

    I would tell you what I feel in that regard, but I don't want to influence that answer ...

    ^ I want to hear Morgan's answer ... I think she's been playing devil's advocate and I am genuinely interested to know what she would say.

    MacGuffin is not a 9!

    You see, type 5's holy idea is omniscience. This is distinguished from type 8's holy idea as Truth because omniscience is knowing the truth about everything where as the simple truth may be particular. When the 5 is unhealthy, or even relatively healthy, it retreats into its own world because it thinks that it lacks the wealth of information it would otherwise have, and how it is intertwined with the rest of the known universe. Once the 5 becomes healthy, it is able to call the shots and be more assertive about the particular truth in the moment as an 8 would.

    On the other hand, the unhealthy 9 is a total wuss bag who just goes along to get along. Any notion of truth lacks significance when the 9 becomes passively merged with others, inheriting the opinions of others for the mere sake of harmony. Agreeability becomes the keepsake of the 9, as most 9s who are self-preservationists feel as though the identity of others is their own. So disagreeing with someone would, in effect, be disagreeing with oneself. Once the 9 becomes healthy and more intact, it learns to distinguish itself by reflecting off of others, thereby becoming more assertive about its own ideals.
