    Default Type Nine: Are you drawn to other Type Nines?

    Romantically or for friends? I think I am. I like when we are on the same wavelength. I like when things are relaxed and everyone is getting along, and I like people who appreciate that too.

    Although I think there's value in other types of relationships. I just think that is what naturally attracts me.

    Hmm . . . I don't think so! I have only one friend who I think is a type 9. We're close, but I don't really gravitate toward 9s in general.

    Romantically I haven't been, can't say if I would be, however in terms of friendships, hella yeah. It's just so easy, neither person wants conflict, both people are paying attention to the other's needs, judgement doesn't enter the equation, it can be very chill and a place where I can feel my defences slipping away as I do not need to be on the look out for potential conflict.

    A romantic relationship with a 9 would be difficult imo due to the common strengths/weaknesses, I can see it being a giant bubble of un-reality and as self improvement is such a priority for me it wouldn't provide "push" or motivation which I think I would want/need.

    Friendship, for sure. A lot of the people I made friends with on here turned out to be nines. Romantically, I haven't given much thought. I haven't given much thought to the previous friendship statement either, but there you have it...

    What other people said.

    This is just a rough estimate, but based on my attractions, I think I'm attracted to enneagram 6's most of the times. Ironically, it is one of the few types I can easily keep under my thumbs(ie. play the more dominant role/being the descision maker). I wonder if there is an underlying presence of insecurities, or if it just stems from my perceiver dominance. Easy and effecient!

    But then again, some 8 females are seriously hot as well, as long as they have the intellect to back it up. Which is pretty much the opposite from 6, in contrast to 9. So I really don't know.

    I'm pretty sure no one I've been attracted to was 9 though.

    I have a couple of close 9 friends and I once pined after a fellow INFP 9. That went nowhere fast. Generally, I'm attracted to more polarizing types though: usually 1s, counterphobic 6s, and sometimes 8s, who have a mobilizing effect on me.

    I don't really know, I've always been very attracted to fours though.

    I've been told that I have a grounding effect on others, which is really useful on people who are "out there."

    Friendship with another 9, yes, that would work.

    I don't know how a romantic one will work though. It'll probably be a bit too boring for me.
