    Default What's my Enneagram thingy?

    Help. What do you think? You can ask me questions if you need to.

    either 3w4 or 7w6.

    3w4 if you care more about appearing successful/motivated/accomplished in the eyes of others.

    7w6 if you care more about seeking novel experiences.

    I guess 6w7 is also possible, if you place the most emphasis on security and loyalty. 6s are most concerned with making sure they have a network of people to rely on and that their needs will always be met, etc.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    None of those resonate with me. I care about making sense of things and doing things correctly, which means understanding myself and my experience, which always makes me feel urgent compassion--like I need to go do something for the world. I like write and inspire people and set them straight, even if I don't always know where I'm going myself.

    Oh, well that sounds more like type 5, then.

    Do you identify with the idea of retreating into yourself to build competence in your areas of interest, above all?

    5s are most focused on building knowledge systems purely for their own sake...most 5s are IxTx types.

    9s are usually identified as peacemakers. They make good mediators because they're typically very calm and collected and it's important to them to help people get along with each other. You do seem to have some desire to help people, but it's more in terms of sharing knowledge and helping others build competence in knowledge systems than in mediating people's emotional differences.

    I don't think 9 fits you. Most 9s are IxFx types.

    Based on what you've said in this thread I'm gonna hazard a guess that you might be 5w4.

    Well, I play therapist to all my friends and my job right now is in mediation. I'll tell you what I do and you can decide on my Enneagram and that'll settle it.

    I call a party, they bitch to me, I say things like "yeah, I understand" partly because it's a spontaneous emotional reaction, but also partly because I'm buttering them up so they can be flexible later. I make a relationship with them. I ask them to make an offer. Then I call the other side and do the same thing and relay the offer. Usually no one agrees, but I'll dig down to motivations, make some validations, trim the dispute down as much as possible, propose a few solutions, and then sell the shit out of it. I'm a good salesperson, even though I have a major problem being dishonest with people, even slightly, and I consider convincing people to buy a product to be a form of brainwashing. Sorry, I was hoping that would be more revealing but I guess it's hard to explain what I do. It's strategic. I'm always assessing people's positions and openness and choose my words accordingly, in order to prevent them from digging deeper into their positions. I'm good at reframing what people say.

    So, gimme your best shot. (I can still answer questions if they're really important.)

    He's not a 5w4.
    Maybe 1w9?
    Take the damned test!
