    I'm an ESFJ E368. As far as I know the only one here. (Which means you should find me intensely interesting.)

    Questions I have:
    Heart-fix: 3w2 or 3w4?
    Gut-fix: 8w7 or 8w9?

    I'm always interested in 3s

    Give us some background information. Describe yourself in terms of being a 3 - which aspects of the wings do you identify with?

    3--fear of Insignificance

    6--fear of being Unguided

    8--fear of Pain and Destruction


    You lead by making yourself known. Maybe you're a help to others.
    In times of trouble, you avoid lack of guidance and integrate into the trust of your friends. These 2 types will make you very social, especially in this order.
    Fear of destruction will rise as a last resort and prevent others from exploiting you should you be separated from their support.

    Hmm, I'm not sure of the wings. Perhaps you could help me out?

    1. Do you see yourself as a person desiring the attention of everyone around you and work hard to achieve this ideal, or do you see yourself as a more strategic, introspective, reserved power-seeker seizing opportunities at the right moment and with diligent work?

    2. Is your extroversion and need for attention tempered by a more melancholic, sensitive side?


    Oh, and @Nihilogen,

    3s fear failure and worthlessness

    4s fear insignificance and being average (which has many different interpretations, a common one being the fear of losing one's identity to the sea of the norm)

    You got 6s sort of right, 6s are more afraid of their environment and of betrayal, so they are always on the lookout for threats.

    8s fear being controlled and manipulated, used as a pawn. (Fear of pain is closer to type 7)

    That just makes you all the more fearful.
    @Alea_iacta_est I read that 4, 1 and 5 were introverted enneagrams. How could an introverted type be fundamentally guided by a fear of insignificance?

    4, 5, and 9 are the usual introverted Enneatypes (1 is in the ambivert-ish complying triad). 4s fear internal insignificance, that they aren't unique among the crowd, that they don't possess a gift or a mysterious quirk that sets them apart from others. It's very elitist-oriented.

    In a way I guess, a Type 3 fears external insignificance, as if they were worth nothing to anybody.
