    @Elfboy Are 5w4s ego types? I'm not as familiar with enneagram terminology as I should be. If so, I don't see it. I think I have a backbone, and I've found most of my fellow rationals (the main group of type 5s) to be the same way. INTPs can appear outwardly wimpy, but attack one of their logical constructs, and you're dead. INTJs are the same way with their perspectives. I've never heard anybody say INTJs seemed wimpy at all before; more often, they're seen as unflinching stoics, which is hardly associated with "emoness," lack of backbone or "wimpiness."
    You lose.

    We're strong internally, where it counts. We just don't feel the need to show off.

    I haven't noticed this. whether one feels the need to show it off or not, it's easy to tell someone who is strong

    @Elfboy, guess it depends on how you define strong. Maybe our terms are different.

    it's possible. I define strength as resilience, backbone and an ability to persevere in the face of adversity.

    I would say I'm extremely resilient and I definitely have a backbone. Persevering in the face of adversity can be difficult, I admit. I think withdrawn types have incubation periods (I do anyway). We retract into ourselves and I suppose to more assertive types it looks like we're not doing anything which could be interpreted as retreating. But there is a whole lot of internal activity. There's a reason the phrase 'still waters run deep' applies to withdrawn types. People see so little of what's going on that there is much misinterpretation.
