    Heart
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    enneatypess!!

    instinctual subtype modifies too. like so types are more c5 and orally fixated. sp is a little more c1 rooted and earthy and connected to a sense of time that is unchanging bc it is made up of deeper cycles and seasons.

    i think the chakras are one of the most useful psychological ideas out there. such a great embodied road map for the spectrum of consciousness.

    the cognitive functions, by contrast, to me seem to be the way our consciousness is routed through a specific, unfolding pathway and its methods of elaborating itself as it grows in orders of complexity/adult executiveness. i think it has more to do with how the leading brain function interfaces with the prefrontal cortex (which develops a kind of preference for providing the spotlight of attention) and how that then connects and moves through levels of embodied consciousness (the chakras).

    when trying to equate the chakras with cognitive functions, i think something is lost, but i don't know how to articulate what that is. but i can say some things, like Se (and maybe Pe?) more directly connects through chakra 2, the kind of reptilian territorailness, environmental connection through sensuality and presence, and ambphibous water/fluid body thing. third eye expresses the process of intuition, where we triangulate outer and inner reality, thru light/visual intelligence, by way of an an inner order of contextualization thru multimodal, sorta synesthesia-y analogy that allows our imagination to teach us thru cycles of dreaming (where day and night, known and unknown, conscious and unconscious) meet. throat chakra is in between thought and feeling (kind of F-ish), where voice and identification can become ideology but also can become self-expression/music. chakra 1 is basic spatial boundaries, S-ish, proprioception anchroing/centering/remembering, the root of the vessel, etc. chakra 3 is focus and power and the discipline of the body that you see in the embodiment and practice of T rooted in cycles of action and not just information. chakra 4 is obviously feeling, and it gets centered in a silent, listening, needs based place (whereas Fe can be so intentional, outwardly directed, chakra 4 requires a working backward to get to the underneatheness, and how seeing this allows one to truly surrender to oneself and allow the balancing actions (of mind and body, self and other, now and later) to happen, more like a the perfection of an interface than an actor in its own right, to empty oneself so the deeper truth can fill the space).

    to me it's helpful typologically, as a personality theory, for example, if you were to compare like a 7w6 enp vs 7w8 enp, with the latter so embodied and rocklike and the former made of water and sound and more fountainy. the basic elemental theories in yoga kind of use a similar process of grounding the hierarchy/spectrum of conscious, of the principles of organizing life, that are universalizable both internally and externally, that set up the right kind of metaphysic to be self-aware as both the part and the whole at the same time.

    i tend to think of crown less as spiritual (especially in terms of needing to have spiritual beliefs, because c7 to me is about letting go of the need for beliefs) and more as open-ended. someone who begins there, arrives eariler, is more likely to be a why not person than a why person. a different burden of proof and openness to possibility and experience. kind of inherently liberal as fuck, depending on how that is expressed (thru sx, so, sp).

    i think the realization at the core of the crown chakra is an ability to let go of all ideas of thought so that seeing and hearing are recognized for what they are, as directly as possible (rather than treated as fundamentalist knowledge), that dreaming is aware that it is but a poetic expression of something else, that the interpretation (the process of it) can lead us to the heart (the center of the self) but doesn't replace it. that we are aware of our limitations so that we can shed our skin and evolve when we need to, and that our minds are open and pliable enough to be ready to do so.

    In that case, I suppose the test was right on the money.

    And I am liberal as fuck. Politically, yes, although I have a strong libertarian streak in some matters. Personally, too. I can be quite generous to people until they fuck me over or take advantage of my generosity.

    I don't think in actual chakra theory you are supposed to be "guided by" one chakra over the others. The goal is to have them balanced and not use any way more than the others.
