(btw i've posted this also in MBTI, Ennegram sub-forum. but since the amount of replies is still very little, i've thought perhaps by posting here it would generate more interests & replies from people here. well you can answer in either sub-forum, though, just wherever you are in. i hope the Mods here is okay with this)
