People are afraid of differences, so whenever they see someone who is different from them, they start assuming that there is something wrong with that person.
Just ignore them and do your own thing. If you enjoy spending your time at home, then just spend your time at home. There is nothing wrong with wanting alone time.

I think my Enneagram Nine is just a coping mechanism for what I would think is Avoidant Personality Disorder along with its implied Social Anxiety and anxiety unrelated to social situations. To counteract this tension I tend to resort to Ignoring and Suppressing information. I let my mind and body just flow with everything else subduing any thinking that requires effort because 99% of the time it would just make me feel confused and unstable, wrecking havoc on my autonomous nervous system... which makes me prone to lazy thinking and inactivity, halting any intellectual growth that could have been accumulated otherwise (is this Pi behaviour?) and also completely removing the possibility for emotional bonding. In School, this means I don't talk to anyone outside required collaborative work, and also that I bullshit all the work I do in class and don't pay attention to lectures.
When my anxiety has subsided through use of (Opiates, Kratom, SSRI's typically) I tend to be more argumentative and openly critical. Of course maybe this change of personality could be just a side-effect of all the drugs have once used to suppress my anxiety rather than being my natural self minus the anxiety. But even if this were the case, I suppose it wouldn't make my Enneagram type any less official since it is based of why I act the way I do, and my mental issues just contribute to the "why".

I know for me that irritability/rage is just suppressed s**t that is buried. I am trying to let out those repressed or hurt feelings in healthier ways at times when I am not feeling stressed by people or life, or with mindfulness, versus reactivity.
For you suppression might manifest as anxiety. For another, fear. Avoidance and dissociation are great tools to use to avoid feeling, or being triggered. But not so good when you want to interact with others, or be in relationship.Ni/Ti/Fe/Si

The more one loves God, the more it is that having nothing in the world means everything, and the less one loves God, the more it is that having everything in the world means nothing.
Do not resist an evil person, but to him who strikes you on the one cheek, offer also the other. ~Matthew 5:39
