    I can relate to 9s up to a certain point, and I can try to be easy going like a 9, but the threat of rejection seems to win out and shake me up whenever I get too comfortable. I imagine 5s have a similar reaction where they must gain some new mastery or something.

    9s feel fine in their comfort zones, like they don't feel that threat as strongly.

    Sooo, well, a summary so far


    The types I relate to as possible core: 7 and 8

    The types I relate to as possible fixes or whatever: 4, 5, 7, 8

    Can I be a 4-5-7-8?! No? Why not? :cries:


    Does anyone have questions or some way to figure out the tritype?


    Instinctual variants are less of a problem, Sx/Sp I think but open to suggestions about Sp/Sx and Sx/So as well

    5s have an incredible fear of not being prepared for life, an event, or something important and try to simulate it and plan it out in their mind beforehand through the acquisition of knowledge about the event so that they can be prepared.

    7s are more likely to plan things out but have multiple plans that aren't as deep as the 5's so that they have breathing room to do what they want. Think of it like a Plan A-Z, where the 5 is usually going to have Plans A, B, and C. The 7 will have several, several unfinished but somewhat developed plans that they want to act on.

    5: This is exactly how I want this situation to play out
    7: This is a guideline to how I want the situation to play out, subject to change.

    I'm sure that would be true for a core 5. How about 5-fixed types (where core isn't the 5)?


    7s are more likely to plan things out but have multiple plans that aren't as deep as the 5's so that they have breathing room to do what they want. Think of it like a Plan A-Z, where the 5 is usually going to have Plans A, B, and C. The 7 will have several, several unfinished but somewhat developed plans that they want to act on.
    Umm if there's a need for it then I like good concrete and deep plans. It gives me a direction, knowing concretely how to get at something. This is true for more complex things. Often I just start without knowing shit though and it does result in a bit of feeling uncomfortable but once I started action, it doesn't stop me of course. It's just... a slight pain in the ass

    Unfinished plans actually annoy me. It just makes me want to act on stuff even more even when I can't start yet (say for whatever reason you are forced to wait before acting). A solution to decrease impatience is fleshing out a more concrete plan until I can actually start on it

    Does that make any sense?

    I didn't understand the part about needing breathing room. I know that's related to the 7's core fear but just doesn't make a lot of sense to me at this point. I prefer having a specific direction I can go in.

    You and your tendency to edit posts after posting them (Sometimes happens to me too)

    So, I can't choose here, I know I said I like having a concrete plan when something's complex, because it does soothe my mind to have one, but I'm adaptive in the process, that is, when in the midst of things, I will have no problem changing stuff depending on circumstances
