Is this combination possible? I've been doing a bit of research, there are those of the opinion that ENTP's are incapable of being anything apart from 5 or 7 primary.
I've always had trouble with Enneagram, I could never find one that "fit". I once typed as 6 primary on a test, though I never felt appeal to the description, I could not relate any more than I could relate to five, or three, or seven, or two. After renewed interest about two weeks ago, I am consistently typing as a 9 on various Enneagram testing sites, and only today had I actually read the description for 9 types. The 9 type never appealed to me because of the title, the word "Calm", threw me off... I do not view myself as calm. But now that's I've read and understood, nine just fits me so well.... I relate so well.
My theory is that having fairly sensitive Fe as a tertiary function, it has developed me to some point where I feel it is my duty to be neutral force to the outside world. Over the years, my Ne and lack of filter have ground myself down to nothing, repeatedly committing offense after offense of objective opinion... I have no honor nor shame, no ego or lack thereof, I simply try to exist in as peaceful a manner as possible... I guess.
-Just two nights ago, a fight broke out outside of a bar. Despite it raining, I went out into the street to regulate the fight and ensure no major damage was being done. A couple weeks prior, two gentlemen were exchanging words outside another bar. I stood between them a tad off to the side (despite being a stranger) just to ensure fair play was being conducted. I'm not completely against fighting, I just don't want anyone who is 'playing' to have an unfair advantage... it really puts me off.
-One of my biggest irks is insulting people directly. I cannot stand when someone, during an argument, resorts to unfair words that undermine the other person's ability to retort. To provide a fact is something, to provide an opinion of fact is another, but to present something so uncounterably objective as an insult to intelligence or something similar irks me, it irks me hard. I told U once if he messaged a girl with a skin disease making fun of her I would eternally hate/troll him. I also remember feeling distaste for the ones who agreed he should do it... you know who you are.
-I am quick to shrug off arguments. I am incredibly inclined to agree to disagree (I'm a big fan of the saying 'to each his own') than pursue arguments over subjective opinions and unknowable topics.
-Characters I have always related with have been loner types that carry guns. I like the gun, is it symbolic of the power that must be exercised from time to time in order to prevent further conflict. The six shooter is particularly attractive, it symbolizes the restraint and precision that must be used when choosing to fire. A list of my favorite characters would go Roland Deschain, Vash the Stampede, The Man With No Name, Squall Leonhart... do you notice a theme?
-The police force/military has always had great appeal to me. I enjoy the concept of bringing justice to people who deserve it, I very much enjoy the concept of bettering the world for our next generations. I have a romanticized view of war and law.
-I've dreamt of being a Monk in the Tibetan mountains. Buddhist dogma, I feel, I have always related with. I would find it particularly interesting that Buddhist dogma has not 'taught' me much, most of the tenants I had arisen to naturally, only to find out someone had beat me to the definitions... I wonder how receptive they are to gringos?
-When I was being fired, my direct supervisor's right hand man was talking with me. He told me, "I know you like her (a coworker), but she's the one that screwed you over." I answered, "It's not that I like her, it's that I like everyone."
It truly is difficult for me to not like someone, even when I know you have committed some of the already stated irksome actions. I understand you. I cannot say no to you. I'm a door mat. I will put myself in an incredibly disadvantageous position just to satisfy the will of another. It gets me in trouble frequently, and I know when I'm doing it I am screwing myself over... yet I simply cannot say no.
-When people feel emotional reaction from my sharp words, it lingers for a good period of time. I feel guilty, so guilty.... I still feel guilty for something I said to Victor my first few days at the forums, as innocent as it was... My best friend once told me when I was young that I was the most shameful person he's met. I took great offense, but I now see what he means... I'm just naturally disposed to not like myself and things I say. It flares my Fe so hard.
I really don't know what I should do for y'all to help me. I feel like by typing all this I am exemplifying a fond line from a Coheed song, "When the answer that you want is in the question that you state, come what may". I do like the nine, I find nobility in it. Shoot with any questions you have, I'd be more than glad to answer them, and you'd be helping me out a bit as well.
Also, tl;dr'ers, my bad.
I even feel egotistical for posting this much =/ What is that a trait of?
