Enneagram is interesting like that. Anyway, I'd say that if you had such a reaction to type 6 it's worth pursuing - it could be a strong fix, your core, your disintegration point, or your integration point. I'm looking forward to your type-me video! Are you going to do a written thread too?
I think if you idealize type 9 as you have explained, and you had this reaction to 6, then core 6 is a good possibility. 9 is the integration point of 6. The testing as 8 is also very common for 6's because they are both reactive types and can have similar "bold" behavior.Since, I've done further analysis - can this be interpreted as me being a healthy-minded six? Is it reflective of my interest in Buddhist philosophy and how I intend to grow as a person, but "me" being something else altogether? I'm really not sure, to be honest. I casually mull the possibilities, but I'm fairly set on thinking myself a 9w8. As you've stated, I think the eight wing (which is indicative even in my early testing, in college) really 'grounds' me out, gives me a strong sense of self, however you'd like to put it.
Sweet =)Don't mind being presumptuous, it's to only way to properly critique a situation
I like the attitude & open-mindedness.
Interesting - I'd love to hear more about this? I have some thoughts about 5 & 8 myself, but I don't know how "objective" they really are because 8 is my core and 5 is my disintegration point as well as my head-fix. Where does 9 come in?Fives, eights and nines are my three biggest conceptual favorites of the Enneagram. I see them all as quite intertwined conceptually (though I haven't done much investigation into that, just a hunch).
Excited =)I planned on going into detail about myself, how I am, but I will make a 'type me' video soon, I think. If I do, I'll tag you, it'd be cool if you could give me your thoughts!
