    Cool Type 9 is liberating

    For the longest time, I thought I was a type 5 (as INTP). Most INTPs are that enneagram type, so naturally I thought it was me. Despite the fact that Type 9 would often test equal to or above Type 5 for myself.

    In the past year, I've come to accept that I am Type 9.

    The 9 is often described as the Peacemaker, and that really applied to me. I didn't like drama or other people intruding on my little world. Don't rock the boat, don't make waves, don't do anything I have to deal with other than my own thoughts.

    Realizing this is my natural tendency has actually freed me from its constraints. I now care less what others think/feel, and realize that they can handle whatever I say/do far better than I previously expected. I no longer have to weigh each statement before I fire it out. It's more fun to throw it all up in the air and see where it lands. I'm overly sensitive to how things are interpreted, so if I see little problem with a statement, then if someone has a reaction to it they're the ones that are overly sensitive. It's their problem, not mine.

    This is not to say that I can't or won't attempt to find harmony with others. It's that I don't have to do it all the time, I can choose when I want it and when I don't.

    I wonder if any other Type 9 has discovered this as well.

    Not surprising at all. You seem to have a more personal approach as opposed to, well, unpersonal.

    Group hug!




    I was the same in terms of testing, always scored as 7 but was sure that I was 5, it fitted with my NTness. Enneagram tests seem to tell the truth more than other online tests.

    It's me, there's just a lot of aspects that I've suppressed for a long time so it's really cool understanding my enneagram so I can rediscover those parts of myself and un-suppress them. I love being naturally optimistic. I love chasing fun through this game called life. I hate how avoidant I am, but when I avoid bad stuff and replace them with fun stuff it's aiirite, cause it's fun

    In tri-type 9w8 would be my second type, I have strong 9 tendancies, I like that as well. Peacemaking makes me feel all Fe-warm&fuzzy.

    Sounds like enneagram discovery has helped you a bit too!

    Yes! Now I will crush my enemies, see them driven before me, and hear the lamentation of their women!

    I say congrats on the finding MacGuffin, apparently Intellectual 9's come off as type 5's so perhaps that was what you were going through?. Either way Congrats on the epiphany? or should i say realization.

    This is progress?
    Sounds like the sort of thing immature 5s say all the time.
