    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?
    Uneasiness leads to annoyance. I still wouldn't categorize it as "fear" though. I'm not afraid of other people, I just don't want to deal with their issues.

    i relate so much to your confusion. i think it's possible you and i may just be very strong in both but likely lean a lil further to one than the other...i think for me it's most likely 7 but for you...hmm...i might say 9.

    I gotz bad news for ya: you seem to be a lot like me.
    I instantly related to your posting style when you first joined, you're softer round them edges than most ENTPs but in a way that still seemed unmistakably ENTP, from my perspective you pay more attention to not causing issues which is something most ENTPs don't use too much effort to do. The E9ness makes sense.

    I prefer collaboration to competition, with an exception when it's done in the name of fun. I agree that E9 and E8 are rather contradictory in most ways that when one is a wing of the other it can appear disjointed.

    I totally agree. Which is why it doesn't matter too much which one I am, if there's something relevant in one type that I can learn from then it serves a purpose.

    Hurry up and decide on your dumb type already. : )
    I think you're probably right. ENTP E7 is pretty standard so there are many examples of how it plays out, not relating to that is a strong sign that it's not me. Meanwhile I'm being decisively indecisive!

    Both are easily relatable for me, that's for sure. What caused you to pick 7 over 9?

    Likewise with yours! (but uh, I didn't wanna say anything, cuz I know you're scared of us sx-dom types )

    It's true, I do avoid "causing issues", since I can see exactly what might cause them from a mile away, and find that kind of drama super boring and annoying. I much prefer real discussion, which can include intense disagreement, but only when everyone involved is actually discussing the topic at hand respectfully (or if disrespectfully, at least in a mutually humorous all-in-good-fun way). Thanks for noticing.

    I noticed you're good at that, too.

    And of course, let's not forget our shared addiction to silly smilies....

    AMEN! That's exactly it! Debating is totally fun, but if someone considers it arguing their perspective bothers me and all the fun gets sucked out and I move on to being all worried about them getting upset on top of losing my excitement at having what I considered a rousing debate ended!

    My INFJ sis is the worst for it, me and my ESFJ mum hit a topic from two different views more often than not and get great enjoyment out of discussing our pov's to better understand a bigger picture, but after a while of listening my sis will pipe up with a "can you two please stop arguing already?!" which causes me and mum to break stride with a "huh? We're not arguing, whatchoo talking 'bout?". But it's all over at that point cause mum gets agro at my sister for misunderstanding our intent, and I get all bothered by the fact that she thinks we were arguing and is upset with it, plus bothered at my mum getting agro, so sit there all

    This is the reason I am very careful about who I debate with, even though it is such a natural and enjoyable thing for me to do.

    IMO, there are two aspects of being 9 that should expressly resonate for you if you are a 9.

    1.) The sense of feeling compelled to establish peace in your environment and

    2.) "numbing out" when that's not happening, even if you don't want to.

    Explain to me how you relate to these two qualities, pretty-please?

    In terms of inner peace: I somewhat struggle with figuring out what that means to me, as it has a strong association with E9 I don't know where confirmation bias starts and ends. It's not something I've thought about before so whatever the case it's not a conscious and named thought to seek it. This does not mean it's not important to me, I just can't figure out what importance I place on it.

    In terms of outer peace: If I am able to compel change and create peace I will, if I am not I will leave. I want everyone to get along but know that is not realistic, so if people choose to be disharmonious I do not want to be around it.

    With either: Give me an option to pick between "fun" and "peace" and I'll pick fun every time but if you give me the option of one and not the other such as "fun and chaotic/disharmony" or "peace and boring/static" I'll chose the latter. Boredom isn't something I have an issue with, I simply have a preference for fun, disharmony is something I have an issue with.

    Numbing out however is something I strongly relate to, I've always done that whenever something I don't want to deal with crops up, rather than facing it like a responsible grownd-up person would, or distracting myself with action like an E7 would, I numb myself, shut out the world and think irrelevant happy thoughts, kinda like the kid who covers his eyes and says "you can't see me cause I can't see you".

    This kind of avoidance of reality ultimately creates more problems which is why I'm very aware of my inclination for this behaviour. I want things to go away without me having to look at them. That's not the way life works.

    This has always been my reaction to unpleasantness. When I'm in a good space, and it doesn't seem overwhelming and/or I feel supported I can be very proactive in seeking the change I want, but if I'm stressed and feel overwhelmed prepare for me to disappear into a cocoon with a unaffected smile on my face. Even if facing reality is a simple thing and I know that understanding the worst case scenario will at the least relieve the stress of wondering what may happen, I'll still avoid and stick to being numb. And kick myself even as I'm continuing to do it.

    Social Nines seek a sense of well being through social connection and friendship. People of this variant may often not seem like Nines because they are usually more outgoing, active, and involved in their world. There is more warmth and affection expressed by Nines of this variant. They tend to be idealistic and are often supportive of causes, acting as the "social glue" in many organizations and groups. But even in the midst of social activity, Social Nines remain strangely unaware of and unaffected by the problems of others. They are drawn to situations in which they feel they can belong, but they also internally hold themselves apart—usually by emotionally distancing themselves from others while maintaining an outward friendliness.

    Since Social Nines tend to be affable and cheerful and enjoy having different experiences, they can resemble Sevens. They also tend to be more task-oriented: they enjoy working on projects and being involved in meaningful activities with others, so they can also resemble Threes. Unlike Threes, however, Social Nines have difficulty sustaining efforts on their own behalf. They do not easily pursue their own goals and tend to get sidetracked by social interactions and others' needs and agendas.
    Well now this is interesting. Interesting in a very whoa that sounds familiar kinda way.

    So I'm rather comfortable with wearing my 9w8 suit, it fits in ways that E7 never did, that always had a pretty superficial kind of fit to it while E9 resinates on a deeper level. But straight off I was unsure of my instincts again, one of the main reason I went with Sp/So for E7 was because it is the most withdrawn type for that Enneagram which for a type that is OUT THERE I needed to be in order to be comfortable trying it on.

    I pretty sure I'm not a Sx dom but anything else could, maybe, potentially be possible.

    On combination E-type and instinct tests I score as Sx/Sp/So, on ones that show instinct by type I will score as E7 Sp (sometimes So) or E9 Sx. On instinct tests I score as strongly Sp followed later by So/Sx.

    So now I'm all like *throws hands in the air*
