    uh... "possessive when I like someone" would indicate possessive of the liked person.

    I suppose I should respond to this, as representative of the type 5.

    Nope, not me! Perhaps the difference has something to do with my 4-wing.

    Emotionally? As if there are "mommy" issues? Sometimes you really have to see beyond type. A borderline personality disorder is not type distinctive.

    You have not quite answered my question. Are fives generally possessive. According to Helen Palmer there can become very possessive of their partner. What is your opinion. I have notices that your threads respectively commetns to other themes are quite interesting and worth thinking about.

    Isn't this the hoarding nature of 5's?

    Fives describe an inner experience of scarcity or lack, especially in terms of time and energy. They typically feel a strong need to hoard these resources and may become resentful when others threaten to impose on them, especially emotionally.

    I'm ass-uming that this can be translated to loss of a human resource, as well.

    5s need help, constantly. I've known a few 5s that are aalllways asking me or their friends for favors. Pretty soon I'm doing 15 different things for them before I stop and ask myself wtf is going on.

    I wouldn't think so. The MBTI types that tend to be most common within the enneagram type 5 would be the INTJ,INTP,ISTJ and INFP types and with such I'd suppose it is more unlikely, regarding the archetypal traits of the given types that they would constantly be dependant upon others for things. I myself am a 5 who tends to dislike the whole idea of asking for help when I have the ability to do such myself.
