I'm not totally skeptical in the sense of a 6. I've noticed 6s are generally always skeptical and give off that vibe. I try to be like a 9 (peace seeking, love all around) at first, but then I realize all these things that people build on my shoulders and then I can judge let loose on a tirade and that's when I get skeptical/resentful (like a 6). But then again, it's angry with a reason but not skepticism like I've heard about most 6s. I'm generally optimistic and I hear a lot of people say I'm quiet but nice if anything.
I can be totally selfless with the need to help people like a 2 but I don't have that flashy "oh I'm helping look at me" thing, I try to beat down my impsulivity and concentrate on how I'm helping exactly (or if I am at all).
I can relate to trying to have competency to achieve, but not just achievement in itself, but things that actually make a difference. When I see knowledge that can actually be useful and applied, I try to keep it close to heart. I agree with knowledge being power, and when I feel stress, I've always imagined just having tons of issues pressing against me, with me not being able to deal with a single on of them. Then I break down, and do something stupid at that point of stress or say something stupid purely to hurt someone as emotionally as they have to me. I can have a fear of being deprived (7) in this state of stress too and that's when people's motives just glare at me and I get unbelievably cerebral/motive-seeking or whatever. Even then I wouldn't say this defines me, I've just noticed stress to be a good indicator of enneagram, so I'll make this as gloomy as possible
I can relate to the deep melancholic states of a 4 (had this my whole life), but when it comes to the world I try to lower my own expression to try and cope with what I see and with myself in the world. I've noticed I can be pretty emotionally clueless/overwhelmed when I don't have support, but this isn't something I'm not totally aware of until that support ceases (relating this to how I can be like a 6).
I've gotten 5w4 on tests a lot, (with 1w9 4w3 trifixes). I thought I could relate but I'm not fully sure at all really, since I've also gotten 6w5 and 4w5 core fixes as well.
So, what do you guys think?
