I've done a lot of thinking, I've mulled over the ideas behind it, I've wondered about for a while, and I've come to a conclusion.
The enneagram is a complete and utter pile of shit.
It is a non-sensical system built in an overconvulted way, with logical holes in it's framework, baffeling in it's design, quite frankly I think it needs a lot of re-adjusting.
Alright for one, the current order of the types makes no sense, considering that certain types can "wing" into others, yet cannot "wing" into any not ajacent to it. For example 2 and 9 can both wing into 1, yet 2 and 9, despite sharing utter similarities (I have seen people who could easily express aspects of thier personality that was both super chill and super helpful) cannot be paired with one another. This makes no damn sense, who the hell said that a person couldn't be primarily five, yet wing into one? I've known plenty of people who were analytical yet somewhat perfectionist, but in no way security or emotionall oriented. Thus types should be able to wing into each other one.
The tri-type could theoretically fix the problem stated above, but it to does not make sense. I mean it's based off head, heart, and gut triads. The hell are those suppose to mean? I mean I can see four as being part of the heart (as it is the most emotional types) but why the hell is 7, a type concerned with having fun, placed in the head group? What about it is thinking or logically oreinted? 1 is much more rationalistic and decisive, it should be in the head group. Hell 8 should be there too, and 6 and 2 should be in the gut group with 9. I fanything it should look like this:
Head: 1, 5, 6,
Heart: 3, 4, 7,
Gut: 2, 6, 9,
And where is the evidence that stressed people of one type can look like another? 1's looklike 5's when stressed, but 6's look like 2's, I'm sorry, who the hell came up with those idiotic assertions? Where's the evidence that people of type x act like people of type y when stressed in such a way? Until the systems are built better and tested then these personality theories are never going to be taken seriously in the scientific community.
