Hello, I am introducing myself as suggested.
I'm an INTP, Enneagram 6w5 so. Most of the time I think I'm the only one in the world like me. I'm having a really shitty day (are we allowed to swear?) related heavily to anxiety and hating myself, and I did some searches and read some of the posts here and I'm feeling a little better, so thx.
I'm married to an INTJ 5w4 who is my stability and is wonderful and patient.
I have been heavily into MBTI, but in my frantic absorbtion I am at somewhat of a dead-end as far as what it's doing for me, so I think I am more officially moving on to an Enneagram obsession. I briefly read The Wisdom of the Enneagram and have read a little about it online, but I'm mostly new to it as a system. I have an INFP 9w8 friend who is pretty well versed in it, tho, and she has been giving me some pointers and insights.
One thing that has struck me about the Enneagram is how clearly I am a 6. It is undeniable. I find it some amount of solace that my psychotic brain is actually a "thing", and I'm not just some sort of isolated malfunction, as is my tendency to believe.
Looking forward to trying this site out! I have joined INTPforum.com, but INTPs can be kind of a weird self-absorbed and relationally disfunctional group. It's a little weird and seems kind of unfruitful to try for much variety in discussion there. It can be fun, but doesn't seem to offer much as far as growth potential that I'm trying with all my sixness to "soak up", if you will.
So, anyway... Again, hello. If any one has more questions or suggestions on things I should introduce about myself, feel free to share.
