    Well I made a typing thread about her a while ago and I think most people came to a consensus that she's a 1w2 (or 2w1)... but you can judge for yourself if you want.

    That really all sounded like you? I didn't know 4s acted like that. Are you just really integrated into 1?

    I definitely identify as the crusader. I view my abusive childhood and violent family history as the catalyst for my homegrown courage and ferocity. I roll in and out of political activism as the causes may move me. I also plan on teaching at the college level if I can't hack it as a writer. I did not think this was exceptional among Type 4s.

    I can relate to the 1, but I identify more with the 4.

    Infj ones are always concerned on doing the right thing. They are more detached and pragmatic compared to infj fours who are more caught up in emotional intensity. That's what I think though I'm not quite sure because I haven't observed an infj four in real life. I'm an infj 1w9 and my concern is more of doing the right thing in a harmonious way. One accounts for the perfectionism and nine for the harmony and I think my nine wing provides a good balance. Doing other things stops me from being a super criticial one. Though my critical attitude does comes out every now and then when I can't control it. Sometimes, my results come out as four in the enneagram. Then I have this artistic and mysterious side with deep emotions overflowing. Maybe, it was during the times that I am being unhealthy that I typed as four or probably its because the infj personality has a lot of sides and faces that I can't really pigeonhole myself on a specific description for a long time.

    @EJCC, you got me thinking that perhaps there is something to the Enneagram Tritype business. I consistently type as a 4, but feel myself identifying with its shortcomings and strengths less and less. I thought this meant I was just occupying the healthy range more because I was learning how to channel my feelings into something productive rather than a cesspool of internalized rainbow muck. But having reread the Type 1, I see some heavy overlap, although I can't identify with all of it. I also can identify with the Type 5 description, which I chalked up to a heavy wing. Perhaps I am a 4-1-5. It's not hard to imagine an INFJ seeking to redirect their volatility into something meaningful, might walk this path. Perhaps your mother is the same?

    It's hard to know if it's tritype or not, since healthy Fours go to One and unhealthy Ones go to Four. I think the way my mom expressed Four-like traits when she was a kid was not particularly healthy, so it's more likely than not that she was Disintegrating, not Integrating.

    It sounds like in your case it could be tritype, and also being a healthy enough 4 that you show a lot of 1 traits.

    I'm an INFJ and most times I took the Enneagram I got type 5, but a friend who is very well-versed in the Enneagram told me I seemed like a definite 4. I read the description of the 4, and related to that extremely, more-so than 5, so I identify with being a 4.

    This is all pretty interesting because it shows just one of the many ways people with the same personality type can be different.
    A hero is someone who does the right thing without expectation of reward, just because it's the right thing to do.

How can you not be, if you walk around noticing everything that's out of place, wherever you go? (And before you say I'm biased, I'm a 1w2 also and I know from experience!
    The bold is my general feeling.

    There is probably some bits of a difference between 1w9 and 1w2. I am not as likely to tell the world off, but sometimes that underlying need to tell someone off is there. I think the 2 wing makes the 1's more likely to voice their opinions while the 9 wings makes it a little less likely.

    Probably more likely to relax a bit.

    @Cloud of Thunder

    They are probably similar because both focus on a type of "ideal." Type 1 seeks a type of "perfection" while Type 4 seeks a type of "idealized image."

    Type 1
    If, finally, the focus is upon the discrepancy between the idealized image and the actual self, then all he is aware of and all we can observe are his incessant attempts to bridge the gap and whip himself into perfection. In this event he keeps reiterating the word "should" with amazing frequency. He keeps telling us what he should have felt, thought, done. He is at bottom as convinced of his inherent perfection as the naively "narcissistic" person, and betrays it by the belief that he actually could be perfect if only he were more strict with himself, more controlled, more alert, more circumspect.
    Type 4
    If the focus is on the realistic self which by comparison with the idealized image is highly despicable, self-derogatory criticism is in the foreground. Since the picture of the self that results from such disparagement is just as far removed from reality as is the idealized image, it could appropriately be called the despised image.

    For sure. I'll bet you're right.

    This is interesting. I pretty much 100% relate to it. But it's misleading in the word choice of "narcissistic", because to be fair, if Ones are "convinced of (their) inherent perfection", they're convinced of the inherent perfection of literally everything else in the world too.

    Yeah, I think the author of the statements was trying to make a point using less than ideal examples.

    Well, the author does talk about the similarities of 1, 4, and 7 and how they are different from one another.
