Not that I'm submissive (I would NEVER describe myself that way at this point in my life haha) but I think I'm more eager to compromise than to debate. I detest more than anything else having something with so much potential to be fun and lively ruined by people's bad vibes - minus some good Grey's Anatomy-esque drama here and there.

    People sometimes think I'm 729 over 728 sometimes because of this but this side of me is very tied to 7/6ish reasons, while my baby 8 fix manifests at very different times.
    Indifference is not the absence of peer pressure, its ignoring it when it suits you. All humans feel peer pressure, were social creatures, what you describe is having limits so as not to be an ass hole. The interesting thing about e7s is the way you seem to naturally twist it. For instance I seem to recall that your sig featured a users attempt to humiliate and silence you...... you turned it into an amusing quip, while simultaneously showing a complete indifference to the opinion. What you do naturally others often struggle with.

I got busy this past Christmas and it took me a while to catch up.


    But Dr. Mobius I iooked for you...and I don't do that. Not because I don't care but rather I'm not good at it haha. But I looked for you.
    What a coincidence I've been looking for me as well . What can I say I'm like the Spanish Inquisition.

    And let me say there's not much I find more appealing than a bloody faced avatar.
    It is exquisite isn't it? The moment I saw it, I had to have it.

    I will eventually return. And Chanaynay <3


    Okay...I'm not editing and wrote this in record speed. Please know that haha.
    I'll be waiting; this place isn't nearly as interesting without you to stir things up.
    At the time they cut me free. I was brimming with defiance. Doctors looking down on me. Breaking every law of science.
    How'd I ever end up here? A latent strain of color blindness. Then it seemed to dawn on me. Haemoglobin is the key

    Why should I tell myself I tasted as many as I could? If I want an apple, I can get one myself.
    Also, they won't waste their sweetness because I'm gonna make apple juice, apple sauce, apple pie, and sell them all and become rich. Nothing shall be wasted. Absolutely nothing. It's inefficient and stupid. It's like getting money and not investing it. Fucking stupid.
    And no, I'm not on earth to love. I'm on earth to accomplish something. To become wealthy and have an impact on other people's lives.
    And also no, I won't be swallowed up. I will escape fate and become greater than anyone could even imagine one could become.
    Life will never break me! I'm an exception. I'm not meant to be broken, or I'd be dead as we speak. I could have died so many times in my life if I could.
    And no, I don't have to feel. I have to think, like nobody has before. I have to exceed the normal humans that seriosuly believe you have to feel.

    I can't relate to this at all. I don't get it.

    Hey RandomINTP, I appreciate your feedback on that quote...and relate to what you have to say here to some extent. One of the things I have discussed in this thread...a phenomenon that can be found in nearly every enneagram description of 7 that goes past the mere fundamentals of this type...is how the specific features and fears of 7...some of which you seem to touch on above...can eventually cause "life to break" for the entranced 7 (many and I mean...a shit-load-kind-of-many e7s report waking-up one day to find their life has spontaneously combusted.) <-hence the quote...which having experienced this break myself...I find quite profound.

    Perhaps you do not relate because you haven't had this common shared experience. Or perhaps you aren't a 7 in the first place. Having encountered a number of your posts...I suspect it is the latter.

    The latter? Look at it this way.
    Everything I do is for the sake of fun.
    I want to become an attorney just for the sake of arguing and debating with people and fucking with them (metaphorically, but also literally).

    Your post sounds like 7w6 if 7 at all.
    Also might be cause I'm a cold optimist.
    When someone dies, and everyone is crying, I'm the person that says "Hell, at least he died in his sleep, and he was a jerk anyway."
    In fact, when I was a kid and my brother died, I missed him the first minute, but the next minute, I forgot about him and played soccer with my friends like nothing happened.

    What happens when you disintegrate into e1?

    I want to know what happens to e7s in general.

    ^^oh whoops @riva I've been neglecting my thread. Have you finally figured out you're truly a 7?


    @chubber

    I know I most likely seem 6w5 on the forum but I'm a 7w6 with a cp wing.
