    I'll check those out when I have time and mull it over. I can't say I don't identify with aspects of the 6 but I can't say I identify with aspects of the 8 less than aspects of the 6, particularly the sexual variant orientations. I'm working on realizing where and how each type manifests itself in who I am.

    Something I find interesting about what @Mal+ said was he didn't find any traces of 3 in my questionnaire answers, whereas much of my personality is heavily influenced by 3ish motivations. This means I'm not being fully open / expressive with the essence of who I am -- but that's not something which is possible over the internet on a thread filled with people who are asked to type a remote description of someone they've never met before cold turkey.

    I think the purpose of threads like these, particularly of the enneagram branch (MBTI can be determined based on behavioral traits, enneagram can not), is to bring rise to meaningful questions and share various perspectives. In the end, only the typee can realize what they are, nobody can do it for them.
    I only have the descriptions you present here to work with. But if there are some 3 motivations in those, in between the lines or whatever, they are heavily outweighed by 8 traits.

    It's the most thorough source on enneagram that I've read.

    Since reading it, I've changed my type (with my mom's help).

    I haven't read it, but I'll give it a look see.

    From an Amazon review: "I have OVER 40 names of my friends (in my back cover to remember) who have taken this test, with number 6 Loyal Guardian being the least and 5 Masterful Hermit being the most. They all said it was 90%+ accurate."

    Six is probably the most common enneatype, followed by Nine. Where are all these Masterful Hermits coming from?

    @UsurpersGonnaUsurp
    one of the main reasons I'm having trouble typing you is because I think you are going through a period of tremendous change in your life (which, at 18, makes a lot of sense).
    there is definitely some sort of
    - 6w5 influence
    - 8 influence
    - 7 influence
    - 3 influence
    and
    - Sx influence

    but as to how they all fit together within you, I would need to observe you longer to figure that out.

    Edit: one thing I can be sure of though, your male archetype is the Warrior (as opposed to the King, the Lover or the Magician)

    Yes.

    I just made a post about exactly this in the other thread, I'm noticing how each of these play roles in my life, but the next step is to start realizing which one plays a heavier role. The way I view it, we have a core enneatype, and our other two fixes are - at the roots - present to serve and nourish that core type, so they're all linked via the core. I can identify with each of those, but, as n2 put it, I have to realize which one is "driving the train".

    The reason I'm settled on 8 and have been for months is because before this state, I've always been an 8 - particularly with 9. I've gone through a lot of painful realizations about myself just thinking about this - my childhood in particular - . When I first looked into ennea, I identified with many of the personality traits of the 8, chuckled about how well it fit, and then smirked it aside.

    Then when I truly started delving into it, I learned what it truly meant to be an 8 - and other types - and 8, 3, 6, jumped out at me.

    Yeah warrior sounds about right, though some words would need revisions to fit me - I don't view myself as 'self-sacrificial', 'willing to help' is more like it. Etc.
