    I dont quite get the Enneagram.

    If there was some kind of 5w7 or 7w5 I would fit perfectly in to it.

    5 and 7 are right next to each other on the integration/disintegration line, which means 5s under stress will start to behave like unhealthy 7s and 7s when relaxed and in control will start to behave like healthy 5s. (Of course, this doesn't mean 5 is a better type. At their best they will start to become more like healthy 8s, etc.)

    Yeah, that's the neatest thing about the Enneagram, how it models the whole universe of human personality as an interconnected cycle, whereas the MBTI can create these categorical divisions that get people fighting & frustrated about things that aren't even tangibly real (like T as something diametrically opposed to F, etc).

It deconstructs how patterns of behavior actually form instead of saying 'you're a this-&-that so you do this-&-this'.

    But partly I dislike the Enneagram because it categorizes me as a 5 sometimes & I think that's a shitty category.
    Hey don't be dissing all the 5's around here. 5 makes everyone else feel like a pansy. (except maybe 3's)

    I think both together are necessary, but I was most grateful to find enneagram. Enneagram answered so many questions in my head that mbti failed to answer. I think enneagram describes me better.

    Well, Fives aren't the only intellectuals in the E-Gram. Richard Feynman was an ENTP 7w8.

    1) 7 grows to 5
    2) 5 disentegrates to 7
    3) you relate to 7 because you're EP
    4) you relate to 5 because you're NT

    What I hate most about it is that it's called "the Investigator"... you just get a picture of yourself walking around with a magnifying glass checking to make sure everything's still there & nothing vanished in your absence from the area .

    yeah it's a weird name I in-vision the investigator type being more SJ. The name doesn't match the description of type 5's.
