    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    I haven't read through this whole thread so not sure if this was already commented on, but it seems like 90% of the Type-C members who are interested in the enneagram consider themselves to be sx-dom. I do find this slightly suspicious. It's like "yes, I'm just so intense and passionate, I have to be sx-dom!" Hmmm.

    Not sure what I am, by the way, but almost certainly not sx-dom. It might be my secondary.

    Just FWIW, I think most of us typology freaks stumble on enneagram at some point--how could we not? It's pretty prevalent.

    I never really liked the 9 types of enneagram myself, finding it to feel sort of like astrology, and working by the forer effect. However, as Cascadedo pointed out, the stacking seems to really contribute something important and insightful into personality theory. Learning that I am SX/SO has been really helpful in explaining my consistent lifelong frustration with being driven to connect and interact deeply with others. SP, and I assume SO, doms aren't driven to such an extent, so when I look around at people close to me and see SP or SO doms, I can wonder why I'm so different, and be very frustrated in that. To know I just AM different, and be able to label that, helps me to figure out how to go about fixing it. And helps my mate understand me better as well, and vice versa.

    haha I just thought I'd throw that out there. It was based more on some other observations that I've made, rather than on this thread specifically.

    I've also noticed that very few people seem to classify themselves as 6 - although apparently this is a very common e-type - and there seem to be tons of 4s and 5s - this also makes me suspicious but it's true that certain types are more drawn to these kinds of forums than others...

    I'm an sx, but I'm hardly intense and passionate in the sense you're thinking. TBH I think my intensity and "sx-ness" is detrimental to actual relationships.

    Yeah. My understanding is that the second one is balanced. The first is so strong it often causes trouble.

    It does seem that way, and enneagram literature itself comments on the phenomenon; it seems "sexier" to be an sx dom, as opposed to the other two. So perhaps some of that effect is in place here, or perhaps the forum simply attracts more sx dom people.

    It is a fascinating ponderation ... the most interesting thing here to me in weeks!

    Plus, I'm curious how many people took the test vs self-identify etc.

    @bold: how can you find enneagram to be "sort of like astrology" but not MBTI?

    The enneagram focusses on something more tangible to me - emotional coping strategies and the kinds of experiences and upbringing that contribute to them as opposed to a theoretical model that has yet to be "proven". Not that enneagram is "proven" either I don't think, but it resonates more to the kinds of behaviours I see in the world.

    But really, I like them both together - it's like nature + nurture, typology being nature, how we are born, and enneagram nurture - how our emotional experiences in childhood shape the expression of that.
