    Often you are directly rude and underestimating.

    ***

    You seem to have too much energy , charisma , values ...... etc to pass as a type 5. (even with w6). Maybe you are surrounded all your life with more open and happy people then yourself so you dont see the full spectrum and you dont realize that there is still fair amount of spectrum between you and real detachment.

    I think what you’re seeing here might well be the influence of his sx/so stacking, though…

    sx/so
    This is the type that exudes the most raw charisma and sexual energy. They may identify so strongly with whatever they're involved with that they often become the symbol of its core essence, and sometimes its lead agent for change. Hardly content with the status quo, this subvariant seeks to alter the fundamental structure of something while at once embodying it's purest or most extreme form. Possibly attracted to radical views on politics, philosophy, spirituality or creativity that reflect their penchant for testing boundaries. They enjoy pushing other's buttons, especially those resistant to their modes of expression. It's not uncommon for them to have a pet social, political or spiritual cause which they're able to support with heartfelt conviction. May exploit and seek to redefine sexuality to reflect their own colorful and uncertain understanding of it. While prone to exhibitionism, they are strongly attracted to grounding influences which can anchor them and provide stability. Failure to satisfy an especially intense desire for connection may cause this subvariant to spite others at the risk of jeopardizing the need for an equal, stabilizing force. Can feel pulled between wanting a life of maximum intensity and reassuring episodes of peaceful convention.
    Motivation: to impact others, question assumptions, challenge convention.
    Familiar roles: provocateur, activist, exhibitionish

    I know, but I am here just to offer a perspective. There is a reason why I said that I dont know the guy that well.


    Plus there is one more problem/factor - the odds that you are a Sx/So and a 5 are pretty low. (but it is possible)

    I would say 6w5 although my initial, less informed impression was 8. Do you need a protracted explanation?

    This thread has one of the oddest posting histories I've seen...

    Honestly, I thought to myself a month or two ago, "I haven't seen Antisocial one post in forever. I wonder if he still comes by..."

    I think you bring up a lot of worthwhile points, but I think mia_infp's observation kinda negates most of it.

    See, when I read this, it just feels exactly like me:

    I feel so obviously sx/so (and I did thoroughly go over sx/sp as well, just to make sure) that there's pretty much no point questioning it.

    So, if that's the case, how do you combine the above with the typical withdrawnness of a 5 that you were pointing to?

    I mean, if we just look at the image for my instinctual variant result from my first post:



    Sx = assertive
    So = compliant
    Sp = withdrawn

    Everything you were pointing to seems to speak to the fact that you are withdrawn and I am not.

    And, well, we know that I am sp last, and, well, my impression of you has always been that you are sp first.

    So... pointing to my lack of withdrawnness, as mia pointed out, wouldn't necessarily seem to get us the answer.

    I appreciate your input, though, and I think it's still valuable to factor into the mix.

    One further 5w6 vs 6w5 issue we can see from your post is that to be an sx/so 5 would seem to be somewhat contradictory.

    5s are supposed to be withdrawn, while sx/so's, with assertiveness first, and withdrawnness last, would seem to fly in the face of that.

    To further compound the confusion, 6s are supposed to be full of contradictions, which, based on my reading recent 6 profiles, is what fits me more than just about anything else about a 6 (having an underlying anxiety/jitteryness does too, but, once again, I would be expected to have that as a 5w6 anyway, so, once again, that doesn't offer up anything conclusive).

    Umm...

    Well, she's so obviously a 4 -- like, there's no questioning whether she's a 4w5 or a 5w4 -- that I don't think her 5ness is that good of a guide, if you get what I mean. Like, if I'm a 5, then my 5ness is stronger than hers, and, if I'm a 6, I'd still say my 5 wing is stronger (I think I'm able to objectively separate my emotions from a situation to objectively analyze it better than she can [which makes sense either way -- 5w6 or 6w5 -- as both are head/thinking types]).

    Post back what your tritype is.
    I might just do this.

    Although, tbh, considering the confusion that already exists, I don't know if I really want to bring tritype into the mix.

    I was planning on taking the $10 RHETI test at the Enneagram Institute website tonight.

    So doesn't this just make it a more intriguing question?

    Perhaps you just don't think I'm a 5 because 5w6 sx/so's aren't common, and look different than the more common sp 5s.

    No, but your input would be welcome.

    You know I respect your opinion more than most, and I'd be interested to hear what made you switch.

    Was it increased knowledge of 8s vs 6w5s, increased knowledge about me, or both (and, if both, what degree to each)?

    I'd also be interested on your thoughts between 5w6 and 6w5, cuz that's been the real question for a much longer time.

    I thought 8w9 when I knew next to nothing about the enneagram, but haven't really thought that for a while now.

    Do the tritype link I sent you first if you do both. It might answer more of your questions, and has the virtue of differing from the other tests. Post your tritype and I will type in the info I have about it.

    most INTJs strike me as 5w6 with sp/sx when younger, but slowly developing into an 8w9 as they grow older then take a shallow exploration into type 2w3.

    Howevers, INTJs like Z and my beloved father figure INTJ feel like they made the journey towards 8w9 faster than other intjs or started there in the first place just being much more 8like or Te like. My little 4 yo INTJ also feels very much like a baby Z and his whole attitude and communication is much more forceful, even dominating than other INTJs, to the point he can almost seem ENTJ at times. Even wehn he says nothing, he is still Te-ish around the eyes.

    However as @PeaceBaby points out, I tend to find much more value as of late in the tritype as it does capture a much clearer snapshot than trying to muddle through and pick one enneatype. Perhaps your tritype is 8-5-2? dominating-analytical-caring. (I'd say ummy is 9-5-2 or 9-5-3).

    Just my thoughts though

    Based on the conversation in vent about what to do if solar flares destroyed technology I'd say a type 1.
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    Absolutely. I know I'm a 9, but the descriptions for 9w1 and 9w8 are disappointing, even though if I had to pick I'd probably say 9w1. The tritype is where it's at. Reading the description of one's tritype is infinitely more precise, holistic, and accurate. 954 is me in a way that 9w1 will never be. (And the instinctual stacking revolutionized my understanding.)

    You might really benefit from taking the tritype test and having that piece of information in the mix.

    My tritype according to a test in a book I took called "discovering your personality type" is 5w4, 3w4, and 7w8, definitely combining to create someone extremely crazy abd random!
    For the Oldham test I guess that would correlate with Idiosyncratic, Solitary (it's 5w6, very close to 5w4), Inventive, and Adventurous.

    Sounds like an awful test, since you have no instinctive type in that tritype, so it's incomplete. X_x
    () 9w8-3w4-7w6 tritype.
