    Welcome to you, sir. I confess I don't understand all the details of the Enneagram yet, but as a 5w4, I have to imagine we have some similarities. I too have regretted my type in the past, so I can perhaps empathize, but why do you specifically?

    As for advice on being productive given your type, specifics depend on where you want to go, and whether you trust me enough to know what I'm talking about. If you want general advice, though, I can tell you to love yourself. As a 5w4, I have found the biggest obstacle in my path to ascension is my belief that the world, particularly its people, will react in a certain way, trusting my sense of reality to not be horribly warped. Focusing on the worst outcome of a could-be can kill that could-be before it even gets running, so try not to focus on it.

    Such is my attempt at advice, based on the information I have gleaned from your post. I don't know if any of it was very helpful, but I know what it's like to be in a funk, so I hope some of it was, or that I can offer more specific advice that will help later on. What are your interests, exactly? What is "productive" to you? What are you doing now that isn't "productive"?
