    Thanks. I did add a bit more to my previous post.

    Actually, I was just on PersN and saw this ... still skimming it. If you haven't seen it, maybe it'll be useful:

    God that was horrible to read.

    I liked the first response to it though:

    It is about an Enneagram, but not based on the actual Enneagram. It is a sucker punch at anyone who actually wants to learn the basics of why certain fundamental personality behaviors become evident in some people, and it is a sucker punch because Naranjo didn't care to actually understand the Enneagram as he read it in the first place, he skimmed right through it, and then wrote down his own warped observations, and wrong observations at that. Naranjo focused on the black and white and labeled a maximum of 9x3 total human personalities, saying E1 think they are holy, E2 are housewives of the year, E3 are narcissists, E4 are crybabies, E5 are not social, E6 are paranoid, E7 are hyper, E8 are psychopaths, and E9 are fat (I'm not fat, so I can't be E9-- lol), inane stereotypes, which still has residues in pretty much all of the current known descriptions online. The only thing Naranjo is famous for is self-effing his own name into wikipedia.

    So we're discussing whether someone we don't know knows more about variants than someone else we don't know. Yay!

    I think a better Achievement would be not to go there at all. I left a response on that thread, not that it has anything to do with the Instinctuals. I really have no comment on what HackN has to say about those.

    Ick, they don't even know detachment from compartmentalization over there, much less how to relate them back to enneatypes.

    I have become less energetic, more hesitant than I was due to mood stabilizers and not wanting to destroy my life, I keep forgetting that. I used to have lots of energy... for a withdrawn type, anyway.
    hmm... i relate to this much more than calm and consistent.

But I just don't know if it's at the intensity of SX first or second. I care a lot about my needs and wants, but not at the sake of hurting others. At least, knowingly.

    Thinking and rereading that... I decided not to scratch out what I just wrote, but to instead try and put it in perspective. It's not always necessarily selfish, I suppose. I can think of an instance, and I'm sure several more, where I went after what I wanted at the sake of my reputation. Fueled by pure sexual energy I didn't care what my friends were telling me to try and derail me. I knew what I wanted.

    But... others times, I go into the opposite mode where I feel... shame. Perhaps when things don't work out in the long run, I think, why continue so recklessly and I begin to let my insecurities override that energy.
    The underlined phrase is what I was getting at. You explained it much better than I could. In the next step, sx/sp could become selfish. I know I've wanted a connection because of how it made me feel. Even though it wasn't a good situation, I still sought it out. Yet, when I found a connection like that, I could become very giving and unselfish in my quest to get that connection again and again. But the root of that seeking out that energy is how it made ME feel.
