I haven't posted in this forum in a long time (and I probably won't for just as long), but I felt compelled to come and greet my fellow 9s and tell them to get off their butts and do something! Anything.
I've tested as 8 and 7 in terms of enneagram, and ENTP and INFP in MBTI, but I finally made some sense of these apparent contradictions by finnding out I'm truly an ENFP 9w8.
9s tend to be lazy whether they admit it or not. I've spent a good deal of my life dealing with 6 traits (direction of disintegration) and with lack of direction. I've tested as a 7 because I felt as an ENFP that (adventuring) was my answer to my apparent lack of grand personal agenda in life. I've tested as an 8 more than a w8 (even though my 8 wing is still strong) because the sense of aggressiveness often was the only thing that made me feel I had energy for anything at all most of the time :P
Being a 9 can be tough. Narcotics and chillin' can only take one so far. Get off your arse! I'd also advise meditation to any 9 that is confused about a constant sense of apathy. It's worked wonders on me. It's seemingly paradoxical, but sitting on your arse in a certain way can be just what you need. Sports might also be a necessity.
The 9s distaste for conflict (and if you are w8 you're even more conflicted about this) requires, in my opinion, one to delve deeper into what it means to live in harmony and peace in this world AND MORE IMPORTANTLY to discipline yourself in some way that gets you in contact with your body. I'll wager there are a lot of 9s who are as clumsy as me. Off course some ISFPs probably don't know what I'm talking about, but as a Ne-dominant, Se is kind of out of reach.
This post might sound ridiculous. But I'm very glad I found out I'm a 9 since as an ENFP it has stirred much internal conflict between a fixation with sloth and Ne grandiose goals. Motivation is a very important thing in life, and I think MBTI is really poor because it only tells you what tools you use...not what makes you WANT to use those tools.
Anyways fair thee well my slothful friends. Lay down the "peace pipe" (and I doesn't have to be the narcotics as others 9s probably know) and go forth into the world!
