    Default I tested as a 5w4 sp/so/sx. Free cookies for a your opinion...

    I have very little knowledge of the enneagram types and enneagram testing, so I would like to understand more. I've noticed that people seem to be strongly attached to their enneagram type, even more so than MBTI. Obviously, that is just my opinion, but I am wondering if people have a more visceral connection to the description of the type or possibly the famous people that are associated with it.

    I've never asked for a second opinion, should I describe about myself? I don't even know where to start. Maybe someone could ask a question, if they are interested. I am here to answer questions and listen. *waiting excitedly, curious to see what you will say*

    LOL my typos...

    Are you a collector? The 5 sp is described as a collector, like a friend of mine who has an enormous collection of sci-fi and fantasy books, and trades them on Ebay. But he collected books since he was a teenager, long before the internet. I recall that his bedroom was filled with shelves of these books.

    I am disappointed in that he hasn't read them all, he only collects them and reads a few here and there. As a 5 Sx/Sp, I have collected books but only the ones that I read and enjoyed. Over the years I have gotten rid of gobs of books because they are too heavy to haul from place to place. But I still have some books from 20 years ago that I don't care about anymore, I just keep them on the shelf as dust-collectors.

    I'm not saying this is like hoarding, however.

    Nope, I don't care as much about physical things, but I do try to collect as much knowledge as I can about the things I want to learn. No offense to people who collect, but I've always thought it was pointless.

    Although, I do have a lot of shoes. xD Hahah, that might be a hoarding problem though...

    might be 5w6... not sure though. tell us about yourself.

    something to start off with, explain how much you relate to these (type 5 TAS)

    1: I like to go in depth and pore over details until i've figured something out as completely as possible

    2: I am an extremely private person who doesn't let many people into my world

    3: I don't feel very big or powerful, more like small and invisible

    4: Other people would think i'm crazy if they could see what I think about most of the time

    5: Only by getting accurate information can people make a rational decision, but people aren't very rational

    6: My family thinks i'm somewhat eccentric, they tell me I need to get out more

    7: I can talk a lot when I want to, but I like to just watch thing happen around me most of the time

    8: If you need a problem solved, let me work on it by myself and i'll come up with an answer

    9: When you think about it, normal behavior is pretty strange

    10: I usually take a while fine-tuning whatever i'm working on

    11: Most people are so ignorant it's amazing that anything works at all

    12: I know a lot about a lot of things, and I consider myself an expert in a few things

    13: I'm curious and I enjoy investigating why things are the way they are

    14: My mind is so active that sometimes it feels like it's on fire

    15: I lose track of time a lot because I get so focused on what i'm doing

    (I just copied this from a book and typed it up quick, if you want I can type up the 4 or 6 TAS, but 1 at a time though lol)

    Not always.

    2: I am an extremely private person who doesn't let many people into my world

    YES.

    3: I don't feel very big or powerful, more like small and invisible

    Not really.

    4: Other people would think i'm crazy if they could see what I think about most of the time

    YES YES YES.

    5: Only by getting accurate information can people make a rational decision, but people aren't very rational

    I don't relate.

    6: My family thinks i'm somewhat eccentric, they tell me I need to get out more

    They think I'm weird and yes. I wouldn't say eccentric?

    7: I can talk a lot when I want to, but I like to just watch thing happen around me most of the time

    Yes yes.

    8: If you need a problem solved, let me work on it by myself and i'll come up with an answer

    Please yes.

    I really hate the word 'normal'. Ok. Really people now really.

    10: I usually take a while fine-tuning whatever i'm working on

    omg yes.

    11: Most people are so ignorant it's amazing that anything works at all

    I can be pompous like that sometimes.

    12: I know a lot about a lot of things, and I consider myself an expert in a few things

    Nope, I hone my expertise in one or two areas with a main focus in one. I may be good at a lot...oh! I see.. yes.

    13: I'm curious and I enjoy investigating why things are the way they are

    Always have been.

    14: My mind is so active that sometimes it feels like it's on fire

    Burning migraine fire too much thinking.

    15: I lose track of time a lot because I get so focused on what i'm doing

    YEs.

    Thanks for copying this. I can see how I could be a 5 that makes sense.

    I don't completely relate to everything, I don't like to think that I make decisions completely from logic and that I look down on others. I feel like those are negative aspects of my personality. I've tried to work on being nicer to people. When I was younger, I came across as intimidating.

    Hello, I notice you're new. Welcome.

    If you are not sure of type 5, then perhaps you should take a look at e3. It is part of the competency group (1-3-5) as well. There's not much to go by, but there are some subtleties that point away from e5.
