    Hmm... so you're perspective is that my logic, when manifest, is a weaker form of xxTP Ti rather than xxTJ Te logic? Another person saw this as well. That would lend credibility to Beebe's model for Introverts, I/E/I/E. Some MBTI theorists believe in I/E/E/E. I was leaning towards Beebe's model myself, but the only thing creating confusion for is that I'm not sure that the difference between Ti/Te has been defined accurately enough, as some INTP's seem to have Te qualities, and some xxTJ's manifest Ti qualities. Perhaps I'm just trying too hard to find consistency in something that's necessarily vague? Oh well.
    Of course, your 4w6 sp/so/sx reading is completely fubar.
    (You can't have a wing that isn't next to your main, and what is the point of putting sp/so/sx down? If all your variants are the same strength, then there is no way to distinguish a variant.)

    Note: I would probably guess straight Four with an sp/so variant... but that is only a hunch on my part, I could not tell you with more certainty without spending time with you.
    4w6? That's impossible, Kiddo. Here's something I posted earlier on this matter:

    I think this site explains it best: How the Enneagram Personality System Works

    But here's my understanding:

    Okay, the Enneagram is a complex 9 archetype system. You have one core type which is the basis of your personality. Each type also has "wings," which add another dimension to your personality. Your wing must be one of the numbers adjacent to your core type. A 4 can have either a 3 or a 5 wing. A 2 can have either a 1 or a 3 wing.

    Another part of the theory is integration/disintegration. Under stress, a type can "disintegerate" and behave like another type. The direction of disintegration is:

    1-4-2-8-5-7-1

    9-6-3-9

    This means that a 1 under stress acts like a 4, a 4 under stress acts like a 2, and so on. Note that 9,6, and 3 have their own continuum on this scale that operates the same way. A 9 under stress acts like a 6, a 6 under stress acts like a 3, and so on.

    The direction of integration is the direction in which a type grows toward healthier behaviors. It's the opposite of the direction of disintegration.

    1-7-5-8-2-4-1

    9-3-6-9

    This means that a healthy 1 will begin to act more like a 7, a healthy 7 will begin to act more like a 5, and so on.

    About instinctual stacks:

    You have Social (SO), Sexual (SX), and Self-Preservation (SP) Instincts. They can be stacked in the six following ways:

    SO/SP

    SP/SO

    SO/SX

    SP/SX

    SX/SO

    SX/SP

    Note that normally only the first two stronger instincts are noted, because it is assumed that that the instinct not shown is automatically the weakest instinct of the three. However, if all three are listed, the last instinct is weakest. A better explanation/description can be found here.

    No, sir. I've been with Master Luke for the past four seasons. He is selling me as I am no longer needed.

    In fact the only illness that most people have is that they exist.

    That reminds me of something...

    "Two planets meet in space, one is looking very sick and worn out. So the other one asks: Hey, what's up with you? Says the sick one: I've got Homo Sapiens Answer: Oh that ... Don't worry, I've had it, that problem solves itself rather quickly"

    Heh, just kidding. I dunno... will keep an eye out. But by this thread, I'd suspect Exxx
