    I was joking. Yeah, anybody who would type you as a one needs to get their vision checked.

    Tense-ness is a sign that you are not connected to your body, you don't realize that you are tense when you're up in your head, this is common for all headtypes. You are not a 9, you're 100% a head type!!!!

    When you say you're future orientated, is it more about what you're going to do today, tomorrow, on the weekend, in a month, a year? Or do you just enjoy thinking about the future and dreaming up possiblities with "what if" questions, prepare for some of them, and never really doing anything? Or are you working out what's going to happen so that you know what's coming at you, and then doing things to prevent anything bad from happening?

    Seems my body has no neck connection!

    How can you be so sure? Your conviction is throwing my need to keep things open! I'm trying to think back to what it was that gave me certainty with my MB type cause I was very unconvinced initially, time and trying it on I guess. Problem is I've done that with 7, and I cannot see myself as 5 or 6 =/

    Good question, my immediate reaction is iunno

    I don't dwell on what I'm going to do, the longer in advance an event is known the less likely I'll want to go, if I want it I want it now, if I can't have it now I lose interest and forget about it. It's more about "what ifs", to be honest though I mostly think about things that have no basis in reality so there's no need to do anything with them, t'would be fair to call me a dreamer.

    It's either/or, they're two different symbols that mean the same thing, so yup, just one. The past is just so... what's the fun in looking at it? There's no potential unknown answer at the end of it.

    This is one that I do have:


    It's called Sesa Wo Saban which is a symbol of life transformation. It combines two separate adinkra symbols, the "Morning Star" which can mean a new start to the day, placed inside the wheel, representing rotation or independent movement. It loosely translates to "I change or transform my life". Now that message is one I need tattooed on me!

    I DON'T CARE IF YOU DON'T LIKE THE INDECISIVENESS, JAYS!

    An ENTP E9 wouldn't look like an average E9 in the first place as it's such an IFP dominated type, and my issue with E7 is there a bunch of things other ENTPs do easily/naturally that I shy away from, such as trollololing and being super blunt without seeming to care about the impact. I've always put that down to Fe, but it feels like something more than that as there are other ENTPs about with a high dosing of Fe.

    The motto isn't bendy, but it applies to anything that could be ethical/moralistic making the stance I hold in any given situation rather bendy.

    I also have 7 and 9 in my tritype, which makes it difficult to figure out primary E type. 7 and 9 together make a pretty weird combination that doesn't fit either primary description very well, and 9 is especially weird for ENTP. Aside from how weird it seems in trying to fit it in with E descriptions, I also happen to think it's a super awesome combination to have.

    I only became pretty certain of my 9w8 E type after reading this description that you quoted earlier:

    http://mindheart.org/junction/oldcj/ep/types/9/98.html

    Both the healthy and unhealthy state descriptions fit me very well; they describe me at my best and my worst. The appearance description fits except that I'm not big (but I have been told I have a "powerful walk" lol) and I don't mind being a bit flashy around the right people when I'm in the mood, more so when I was younger in party mode (influence of the 7 in my tritype).

    This is a list of the E9/E7 stuff that I feel does and does not fit, whaddya recon?


    My issues with 7/Support of 9:

    - I don't fear boredom, maybe in part because my mind can always entertain me but also partly because I don't need to be doing anything I'm happy to sit there and ponder things.
    - I am not high-energy, I'm actually decidedly low energy.
    - Anger is the one thing in other people that I withdraw from faster than anything as I seriously cannot handle it, if you show me anger I will never trust you again.
    - I consider myself more ballsy than assertive, although I can be when I need to be.
    - I am highly introspective and have always lived in my head.
    - I do not have a strong sense of self as separate from others.
    - I tend to go with the flow rather than create my own path against resistance.
    - I don't really have goals, and can't generally be fussed with setting any, every once in a while I'll try to set some but it is short-lived.
    - I avoid confrontation. I hate confrontation. It's the reason I stopped modding elsewhere and I cringe if there are disagreements here.
    - I am usually quiet, I listen more than I talk, but I do have my excited moments.
    - I am used to being on my own, and am comfortable there.
    - I have faith that all things will work out.
    - I don't like to draw attention - but I can handle it fine.
    - I do not use force to assert myself.
    - The statement "a lot of my excitement goes on in my imagination" is very much true.
    - I don't feel as though anxiety is an issue for me.
    - I seek to remain neutral in conflict. I'm very active in this pursuit much of the time!
    - I can idealise others.
    - Burying ones head in the sand is a past time for me.
    - While people can see my ENTP need to debate as argumentative I will never raise my voice and take a conversation personal, which is my definition of an argument. I have never argued with a romantic partner, ever.
    - I think I'm softer 'round the edges than the average ENTP. As much as I enjoy devils advocating I could never be a troll.


    My issues with 9/Support of 7:

    - I enjoy high emotions and elation.
    - I see myself more as a head type than gut type - but then 9s are often out of harmony with their gutness.
    - I am highly impulsive.
    - I play fun and work hard, generally in that order.
    - When I am motivated by something I will get it hell or high water (unless I'm distracted by something shinier).
    - Short attention span; I has them.
    - I am comfortable taking the lead when I feel competent and no one else is. I sought out a management position.
    - I can be quite competitive.
    - I do not believe I am seen as too accommodating, even if I am.
    - I love stimulation, adventure, excitement and variety.
    - I can be assertive - but then I am a w8.
    - I resist commitment and stability, in favour of keeping options open and wanting change.
    - I'm all for instant gratification.
    - I do not deny myself what I want. Get an idea in my head: need it instantly.
    - I'm a quick thinker.
    - I'm aware of, and comfortable owning my strengths, and I can also downplay my weaknesses, although I will still own them.
    - I do not equate self-assertion with aggression, I see the former as very positive.
    - Sp/So E9s can be seen as the least assertive of all the enneagram types, I'm not.

    I had to read that a few times to get it to sink in but it does feel somewhat true for me, I don't have a strong sense of self, who I am depends on who I'm with, not because I change but because who they see me as changes my view of myself. I'm fiercely independent, but I'm also unsure of who I am unless someone else tells me.

    Actually that's something I've always struggled to comprehend until now: I constantly seek reassurance, not because I have low self esteem, I don't believe I do, but because I have poor perception on who I am and need to be told again and again to understand.

    I love excitement, and activity, I just don't create it. For one I often can't be bothered with the effort, and for two I often don't know how it would go across with others and that stops me.

    When stressed I relate to excessive, materialistic, passive and unresponsive =/ I seek avoidance, the easiest way is to do it in isolation however if the opportunity to be stimulated came up I would take it as I know that when around people or activity I will recharge and leave in a better mind frame then I started with. I want an emotional high from activities, good feelings chase off the bad ones, at least for a while.

    I like euphoria. I seek highs.

    Yeah, I don't think I'm unfocused, nor indirect when talking, actually I can be too direct at times. And the withdrawal thing is something both types can share in different ways, that's the reason I saw 7 fitting so well; my avoidance when something I don't like comes along rather than dealing with it asap to minimise it's impact, I stick my head in the sand and hum "lalalaa". But then it seems both types are pretty good at that tack.

    Looking at something linked in elsewhere

    That is me, in a really bad way. I can go for months without opening mail, and for years friends would pay me out about the stupidity of me owning a phone cause I never answered it. That was me in deep depression. I survived as much as I could by living in a dream state when I could.
    I relate strongly to 99% of what you wrote there.

    I gotz bad news for ya: you seem to be a lot like me.
