    As for being depressing, yeah Enneagram kind of sucks that way, once you start understanding it correctly. No, being a 3 doesn't make you a narcissist, but it means that if things start happening such that you cope badly, your tendencies will be kind of narcissistic. Each of the types is a coping mechanism, and the only real problems occur when you just blindly cope with whatever using that same typological strategy even when it doesn't make sense. And a lot of the emphasis is on "blindly": until it gets pointed out, you're probably not going to see it in yourself, and sometimes not even then!
    I agree with everything here.

    Now you just solidified the 5-ness in my tritype. This is awesome. I totally have had ocd, knowledge-hoarding tendencies towards several subjects in the past but I got bored: Nazis/WWII, serial killers, evolution, The Civil War, health psychology, baseball, cellphones, makeup, typology. Now, my current one is probably business psychology and dynamics and finances.

    I even used to read the dictionary and thesaurus for fun as a little kid.

    That's good. yeah blindness is a disease this world has. We are all ignorant on how someone thinks lives feels and breathes in this land. Yeah while I may have some narcissistic coping tendencies, I don't relate to full blown narcissism there are some days I wake up and look at myself in the mirror and say man I'm ugly! Lol. Humbles me to know that looks aren't everything.

It is very possible that those to whom you would ascribe the phrase "ignorant asshole" are following a part of morality of which you are ignorant, and just because they aren't doing that small subset of things that you describe as moral, you believe that they are essentially immoral.

    Your perspective would appear to derive from Kant's, so it has a strong pedigree, but Kant's approach is inherently flawed, as he reasons in terms of having an overall abstract monolithic morality, as opposed to how humans actually live and express their morality. Morality doesn't derive from reason; the reverse would in fact appear to be closer to the truth.
    Wow. I have had this exact thought but would not have known how to word it. You expressed this so well.

    :P 5's can somewhat be like autistic kids I've helped out. One was obsessed with turtles. Hated though when I touched his turtles when I wanted to play with him.

    I don't know. Listening to the sounds already brought me to my daily spying limit. Maybe I'll find out some other time.

    Maybe they are learning about woodworking.

    It sounded like they were banging on metal but not in an aesthetically pleasing way.

    The song was some kind of children's choir, a man doing spoken word, some 70s-ish progressive rock, then back to the choir. I hope they're having fun over there.
