    I've seen a book by Naranjo called 27 Personajes en Busca del Ser (27 Characters in Search of Self), but it's in Spanish & I can't find it in English. It supposedly features 27 people of each type talking about their integration processes or something like that. Might be interesting to get a flavor of each subtype (this would not include wings of course).
    Interesting.Thanks I'll look into it.

    I think Everything Enneagram has an online presence at NetPlaces:

    http://www.netplaces.com/enneagram/

    I found Chestnut's work...somewhat odd. It was as though she cut and pasted from Naranjo (including some of the things translated from the book you mention) while citing from Maitri and a few other authors. While this makes for an excellent summarized reference guide, esp for a newbie, I honestly felt like I could have written most of it myself. She includes an analysis of The Odyssey and Dante's Inferno under each chapter (?), and, happily, seems keen on breaking down stereotypes. The most useful aspect of the book was probably the self-psychoanalysis section for each type, as well the extended perspectives from individuals belonging from each of the 27 archetypes.

    I'm waiting on Naranjo's most recent work myself. It's not yet been translated, but again, Chestnut claims to borrow heavily from it. Definitely a good, if odd, reference guide.

    She's not sx/sp, but perhaps @AngelLight2012 could chime in.

    Oh, yes.
    I once mistyped myself as a 6 on here, though - looking back at that, I realize that it was simply my disintegration point. I had been going through some pretty rough times back then, with trying to get myself back on track academically and all.

    As an sx 9,would you consider yourself 4-ish?
    Hmm... I'm not sure. My sweetheart is a 4 though, and we both seem similar in some ways (for example, we both have the tendency to daydream and are quite romantic with each other).

    Would you consider yourself more passive or aggressive?
    Depends on the situation. If something needs to be done urgently, I will step up to the plate and do whatever it takes. Otherwise, I have no problem taking a more passive approach.

    Are you straightforward or do you beat around the bush?
    Ah, good question. You will know if I'm being straightforward or if I'm beating around the bush, and I will beat around the bush if I'm afraid of hurting others. With my loved ones though, I tend to be more straightforward.

    Are you emotionally volatile?
    I can be, though I try to avoid that by meditating on the people/things that make me feel happy and calm.

    Are you reactive whatsoever?
    Not sure if this is what you mean, but: whoever mentions anything against a cause I'm passionate about had better watch out. I will defend that cause to the death.

They might even wind up living through others' personalities rather than assert their own individuality. The stereotype of the sx-firsts being "aggressive" doesn't necessarily make them so, though Riso and Hudson also note that sx 9s can have a "sassy" streak.
    With emotions, she does sort of have an "out of sight, out of mind" mentality. She sees herself as "weak", yet she's one of the strongest, most stubborn and forceful people I've ever met when she makes up her mind what to do (or not do). Think of a zoo elephant, and that about captures her.
    Those bolded phrases describe two of my most dominant traits in a nutshell.

    No problem! Glad we could at least help you determine this!
