    Default Description of 4w6

    I tested 4w6 on a Enneagram test and though I do know what 4 and 6 look like separately what is it like when there together, cause I dont understand how they fit together seeing as they almost seem to be polar opposites.

    I'm not sure how you actually tested as a 4w6, because wings necessarily as part of the theory are next to the main type.

    In your situation, you can be a 4w3 according to the test, or a 4w5. You cannot "test" as a 4w6. This is one reason why you've reached a result that seems contradictory to you.

    The contemporary model doesn't allow for not adjacent wings because . . . well there's no actual logical reason for why; just that it isn't part of the supposed theory.

    If you want a description for 4w6, then you'll need to create one for yourself.

    I'd imagine the person got 4 as the highest type within the test and 6 as the second highest and assumed wing means the second type for you. It can be a mistake for beginners in the theory.

    You imagine, or assume, but I want to know what test it is, and whether it gives a result such as 4w6, or if it's just a graph or a bunch of numbers.

    I am guessing what you are saying is correct, sorry for the misconception guys.
