    Looking at this present info, and your assertion of being w8, I have to go with 9w8. It doesn't completely fit. And when you say "I can [emphasis on CAN] be quite competitive," it's really not relevant to how you are ALL or MOST of the time, which is what matters in determining the main e-type.

    I'm beginning to see that there are about 4 of these 9w8 types on this forum, and they have key characteristics in common. The main characteristic has to do with the fact that the 9w8 is the most conflicted type on the Enneagram. As a result, I see more fluctuations in their responses to the forum, not only in their posts but in the e-type or mbti type they report as. I'm not saying this personality type itself is in flux (maybe it is?), but the individual's self-awareness is dependent upon circumstances. And the various responses I get back are slippery as hell.

    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.
    All you need is to watch yourself more, learn to understand what you have control of, and reactions within yourself that arise subconciously. Eventually things will start to fall into place. I really think the best thing about the enneagram is that it provokes you to think about how your mind works and to work out what drives you. Understanding yourself can take a long time, don't expect it to happen overnight... oh, and it never ends either, you're always going to react differently to new situations. Life is full of surprises.

    Have you decided on your type yet?

    I think you are probably 9w8. Let me explain how I came to this... you are entp, that is pretty much for certain, so let's use it as a base. If you were 7 and entp you'd expect a more frenetic sort of personality but you aren't. You are more laid back, therefore 9.

    There is more to it but this is the crux of it. I am drunk and it is late so that is all I can be bothered typing right now.

    Hurry up and decide on your dumb type already. : )

    Ohh, on that note, do you think tense-ness could be a sign of withholding anger (or other emotions).
    It's tough... yet when you figure out one of those subconscious blocks it's such an amazing feeling. Things that never made any sense click into place, and there's a lot of power that comes from self-awareness.

    And yes, tenseness is a sign that something is going on. I usually relate it to fear and nervousness, but I suspect fear and anger are closely linked in the E9.

    Oh there's definitely no logical reason that supports my avoidance, and sound logical reasons to deal with things. I know this, and I consider myself smart enough not to constantly fall back into avoiding things that will make life harder... but I do. Again and again. And so I get angry at myself for it, but then I think happy thoughts and go back to avoiding both the initial issue, and now also the stupidity of avoidance.
    Hehe, I could have easily wrote that.

    Not for me, they are quite separate.

    I feel tense when I am angry and fearful... more like despairing, really. I usually am only angry when I am feeling desperate, anyways.
    I don't see any invisible treasure chests.

    • MBTI? ISTJ
    • Enneagram? 6 with a strong 7 wing
    • Brony? Yes
    • Stereotypes?

    Do you know what level you identify with?

    (I'm wondering if my suspicion applies more to certain levels.)

    Yeah, perceived powerlessness tends to bring out both emotions within me, which usually shows up as tenseness followed by avoidance.

    Going by this: http://www.enneagraminstitute.com/typenine.asp I identify with basically everything between level 2 and 7. Though I do see the word "fear" in level 4, I don't think of that emotion as fear but annoyance/uneasiness.

    Well, I'm a pretty solid Level 4 (with bits of 3), so that might explain it. My suspicion may only apply to level 4 or thereabouts.

    Still, annoyance seems like a dulled version of anger, and uneasiness a dulled version of fear. Do you find annoyance / uneasiness to be quite separate? Not as in similar, but rather, does experiencing one tend to be connected to experiencing the other?
