    I definitely don't think that's Elfboy's issue.
    "Identity crisis" is an issue for the Emotional (Feeling) center. Borrowing from the energies of other centers explains why 9s can appear like 5s, 7s, 4s, or 2s, depending on the person.

    o.O

    If I borrow from another center, that's not really me is it?

    The other centre isn't you but the tendency to borrow to fill your vacuum is.

    Or not, don't pay attention to me, I'm talking with great authority on subjects I know very little about.

    Me too. I don't know what "really me" is. I guess if your type borrows the energies of another center, then that's "really you." I introvert the energies of my Center, and that's "really me." The 7s extravert the energies of their Intellectual center. The 6s repress the energies of the Intellectual center, so they borrow from the Emotional or Physical centers.

    The 9s (one of the shell types) sometimes looks inside for themselves when they should by looking outside for their center. In this case, the answer to yourself, as a 9, is not in the enneagram or any other typology. The most the 9 can get out of this is to find that the answer isn't here. Or they can get some idea of how to be productive in their lives, e.g., aptitude testing. Otherwise, the 9 can waste years trying to find out who they are because they're looking in the wrong place, the wrong direction.

    A good saying that the type 9 should always keep in mind - "When you stare into the void, the void stares back at you."

    lol those were my thoughts. I have the strength and defiance of an 8, but certain things just seem out of place "Elfboy", "Chronicles of the Prince of Light", avatars of elf looking anime guys, hair styled to look more feminine and graceful, main interests are music and fantasy? my personality is obviously much more feminine than an 8

    "The idea that 8s are masculine is a stereotype."

    Come on trolls, where are you on this one!

    Nine's repress the energy of their center and borrow from the energies of other centers. In your case that would be the centers of emotion and intellect. My reading indicates that you will have a preference for one or the other, but not both. If you are effiminate then your preference is toward the emotional center. The intellectual center is still active, but it is secondary (or auxillary as the Jungians say).
