    My problem with it is that because it's so well ingrained into me now (because I've read for hours and hours from books + the absurd amount of time I've spent online reading + foruming) it creates more distance than I am comfortable with. It's not the knowledge that is the problem, it's how deeply it's seeped in and how hard it is to choose my words so as not to offend others--or to not have to give a disclaimer every time a MBTI thing slips out about how it's only a framework and people are multi-dimensional and every individual is an exception, blah blah blah.

    I like this approach. An infinite array. How many colors do we want to work with? Maybe we could have 6 billion types? But that would be pretty damn confusing. I have enough learning about 16.

    Honestly, as individual as each human being is, it would be more accurately portrayed on a sliding scale. Sexuality has Kinsey. Personality needs something as well.

    This is definitely true. I have advocated showing the percentage scores of ones results for a long time. It's more accurate that having a boolean display for each variable.

    This is aslo why I like the Instinctual stacking system and aim to apply the same reasoning to the other Enneagram traits.
