    Edit: Just for fun I decided to highlight things I personally identify extra strongly with (/struggle with/suffer from ). I included the boldface from the original so the symptoms that really struck a nerve with me are in red.



    I've highlighted the latter part of trend 10 although I have it on good authority that my perfectionism comes nowhere near the heights reached by Withdrawn individuals.
    These are the ones I struggled with the most in my first 30 years.

    1. The neurotic need for affection and approval, the indiscriminate need to please others and be liked by them.
    10. The neurotic need for perfection and unassailability. To become better and better at life and our special interests is hardly neurotic, but
    some people are driven to be perfect and scared of being flawed. They can't be caught making a mistake and need to be in control at all times.

    I voted compliant/withdrawn.

    I wonder how well this correlates with enneagram types:

    Compliant -> 6,1,2
    Withdrawn -> 4,5,9
    Aggressive -> 8,3,7

    The reason why I haven't voted already is because I am not sure where I am in that poll and I am already thinking about this for sometime.
    The thing is that I am extremly unspontaneous and I calculate a lot so I can't just say "This is me!".
    It all depends on my goals in some situation.

    Because of extreme introversion I think I am withdrawn/withdrawn and people in that line are some of the most similar people to me on this forum.

    But that question is about coping style not lifestyle. Since I calculate a lot I can say that I favor any option, it all depends upon situation. But some options are more likely to be used then others.

    The thing is that most of the time I am alone, most of my life I am alone. So this relation toward people could be hard to tell.


    Here is one example: I can be compliant just to make sure that I will hidde my "guns" and I will attack in most unpleasant moment. Just to make sure that they start to avoid me since I am more trouble then I am worth and I am most likely not to be interested in them.

    I actually did this kinds of things to other people.


    Any opinions?

    Withdrawn/aggressive. I was close to choosing withdrawn/withdrawn, but I'm leaning slightly more towards aggressive, though I hate to admit it.

    Aggressive would be nice, I think. At least from the perspective of a withdrawn/compliant.

    Assertiveness is necessary.
