    Default I'm good at following instructions.. guess which type I am? :P

    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.

    I can so relate to this with my "twoness" as well as with 6 being my head fix. That moment of "Wait, other people think like this too?!" was certainly an interesting one.

    Oh, and welcome to the forum!

    Thanks! I tend to kind of cycle between being really certain and thinking of a million questions that I don't know the answers to. :P It will be nice to be able to get some feedback!

    Oh, and welcome to the forum!
    Thx! It is nice. I felt that when I found out about INTP type, but I seem to also be really different from a lot of them, which makes me feel, again, like I'm some sort of anomaly. :/ But, in reality, everyone probably is.

    So... this is something I still don't know about the Enneagram.. Are you saying you have a different type for head, heart, and body?

    I was reading about the instinctual variants and I feel like I have a particular one with my 5wing that isn't the same as the one for my main 6. I think I'm a social instinct, but the five self-preservation seemed very true for me. There are so many different combinations- so many more than MBTI. It's a little daunting and really exciting at the same time. I love having so much ahead to learn, but I also want to already know everything. lol

    Kind of. You have your core type, that fits you better than all the others. And then if you want to get into trityping, you find out which type of the other two you relate with most. So, my tritype is 268. I'm a core 2w1, but I also really relate to 6w7 and 8w9. There should be some resources for tritype if you scan the Enneagram area.

    If you're gonna to tell us to guess your type, you can't immediately tell us what it is. I would welcome you but I want to leave you in suspense if I will do so in the next day or so. That's how you do it. Not guess what!? then tell us what.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so
