    Default Winging it.

    Okay I'm not sure how to proceed with this but I'm interested now.

    I'm wondering if anyone would take a crack at sorting out my enneagram type. If I take the test I get 9 highest but then I think 6 then 5 come next, 1 is about fourth or fifth and I think that 8 is in last place (now that doesn't measure up with my temper for a start).


    So can anyone assist? Is it like the MBTI where you can ask key questions and based on the responses type someone?

    A bit in the dark here, could use some assistance.

    This sounds like a job for Magic. He's great with this stuff.

    Questions can be used.

    But since you probably are a Nine, what exactly are you trying to clear-up? Your wing?

    Also, do you want to stick the the conventional wing system? Or do you just want to say to hell with it?
    The latter would be much harder.

    Well first off thanks guys.

    Magiccy P,
    The whole wing thing would be nice to resolve as either a 1 or an 8 wing could potentially help me identify areas to work on in my personality.

    Also I'm quite concerned that I'm mistyping myself as a 9. Reason being is that although the 9 is highest it's not much higher than the 5 or the 6 and in fact I do work quite like those two types at points.

    I guess I'm just not as comfortable with the whole enneagram system as I am with the MBTI, probably due to only knowing people who say "the ennea what now?" except for one but that's complicating matters.

    As for a direct answer to what I'm trying to clear up, the most direct would be "well a little of everything". I know the picture given to me, I've seen it. It just doesn't hang right. I don't understand the picture or why it was given to me.

    See I have this annoying block so that what doesn't make sense isn't used and is left in storage. Only what I understand (correctly or not mind you) is actually employed and I'd like to be able to employ this enneagram stuff but kinda stop short.

    Oh yeah and I'm not too sure if I should rule out 5w6 with a heavy 9 influence. Would that not also describe me well? (oh and no I don't expect an objective answer to that last question for obvious reasons of "need input").

    Anyhow any help would be much appreciated oh great Cthulhu

    OK.
    No take. Give and take.

    1. Handwriting on the board.

    2. MBTI test.

    3. Function order test.

    4. E test.

    What goes around comes around.

    I have the same problem Xander. While they're at it, maybe people could tell me whether I'm 5 or 8, if they're not gonna let me totally subvert the whole system and be 5w8 or 8w5!

    I don't understand the system or you well enough to say about you Xander, but FWIW I'd hazard you at a pretty healthy 5.

    Be gentle.
    All my results thus far are here.
    Sorry for the link and that but I thought it'd be more expedient to just link it than post it all here. Let me know if you, or anyone else for that matter, wants the results in the thread.

    Edit :-
    I just re-read that... do you really want handwriting? I guess I could do that though you'd probably have to wait till lunch. Some people are still working under the assumption that I work here Fools!!

    I wanted to be a 9w5 but they said I couldn't. I didn't speak to them for a while but now I think we should come to an agreement.

    Now that is interesting, why a 5? I know I've got the whole INTP virus but aside from that I didn't think I was very 5ish.

    Actually now I look at it, no I don't think you're any kind of 5. You're not like the healthy descriptions but you're certainly not like the unhealthy ones either.

    Whatever type you are, you're a healthy one, anyway, at least from what I see of you here.

    Yeah, I'd go 9w5 if it were possible. I don't see why it shouldn't be!

    I just did a test that gave me 7w8, which I suppose is possible, though I can't find a proper description of it to say whether it's me or not.
