    It was a joke about the house thingy. :P

    Also, I've no real knowledge about enneagrams, but I've always believed myself to be 7 from the descriptions and such, but later, with some help, I found out I'm as 5 as one can possibly get, the thing about being a healthy confident 5, is that you can show behaviour that may seem to be 7. Either way, enneagram typing is alien to me. It's just weird.

    Do you mean I have to keep debating? And here I was fairly sure I'm INTP by now (again) mumblegrumble. :P

    Uh, actually it's the other way around - healthy sevens exhibit fiveish traits while unhealthy fives go to seven. You sure you're not a seven who thought they were five?

    It's not as much as five going seven, it's five exhibiting five behaviour on five based principles that just seem like typical seven traits.

    For example, "They constantly seek new and exciting experiences, but can become distracted and exhausted by staying on the go." is typically seven. But a five can also crave new and exciting experiences and become distracted/exhausted on the go, although fives would do this for the sake of data input instead of an innate compelling emotional desire that should be present in a seven. I'm a five that is a information junkie. I have always felt very related to many of the good traits of a seven, I read them and I'm like, hey, this all fits, so when I was new to typology, I thought I was a 7! But on closer inspection, the reasons why a seven shows seven traits are not the same reasons I show those traits, and looking at a seven's unhealthy levels, I don't relate to any of the bad. And although I rarily have bad moments in like the last 6 years now. Before that I have had very stressful times in which I couldn't quite deal with things the way I should have, and even then, it wasn't the seven bad traits I showed, but rather the five unhealthy levels.

    So I came to the conclusion that my enneagram type must be five. Because all round that one seems to fit the bill. And all the seven traits I exhibit, are really just a means for me to indulge my five. And has nothing to do with actually being a seven at all. I'm all five, 100%! :>

    Anyway, enough about me, this thread is about you!

    And anyways enneagram typing seems to be quite a bit flawed, or rather, the tone in which the types are described is too strong. The way enneagram types present the various types, don't stroke well with me. It seems too black and white to be practical.

    MBTI typing allows for more diversity within the types and also has a much more effecient and reliable means of testing. Seriously, most enneagram tests I took, they're so shaky! :P

    O i c. I tried looking more at the bad traits in the two types to get away from he Forer effect, and I see myself in just the good traits of five but both the good and the bad traits of seven. And I got an unanimous "Seven!" yelled at me in that other thread, so I think I can be rather safe in assuming I am one... But yeah, Enneagram typing is weird. My biggest probablem with it is the lack of an underlying system, though. The types seem rather arbitrary to me, while the types of MBTI are inherent in the system.
