    That's interesting. I've never really considered myself the person to strive for absolute perfection, just perfection in regards to self-awareness. This warrants further exploration.

    I don't know that the type 1 strives for absolute perfection, its motive is to be objective. Your 9-wing strives for symbolism.

    I don't know that the type 1 strives for absolute perfection, its motive is to be objective ("to know how to explain myself in terms that are relatively objective (as in not deriving from internal, idiosyncratic self-awareness)"). Your 9-wing strives for symbolism.

    Edit - here's a bit more from the Enneagram Institute: "When Ones are healthy, however, their objective orientation to life allows them to remain firmly in touch with human realities, including their own."

    Intriguing. Does this mean I have to put up with the 1 stereotypes of being rigid, perfectionistic, and punctual? For that is something that definitely does not manifest itself in me.

    Here's my edit from my previous post: here's a bit more from the Enneagram Institute: "When Ones are healthy, however, their objective orientation to life allows them to remain firmly in touch with human realities, including their own."

    As for stereotypes, ignore them, it's not as if you're a stereotype.

    Alright. Any ideas for instinctual variant? Or is sx/sp fine.

    Also, for purposes regarding my signature, ideas for trifix?

    In considering the trifix, it is necessary to avoid being misled by the appearances presented by "RESONANCE." Since the 1w9 type resonates with 5w4 (because a type resonates with the type at the opposite side of the enneagram), it might be tempting to see the 5w4 as part of your type's trifix. In this, I'm not saying that the 5w4 IS NOT part of your trifix, but that the similarities between resonant types can lead to misidentification of one's trifix - or even of one's primary type.

    Because of the multiple attempts at typing yourself that have revealed types from different triads, I'll say 1w9 - 8w7 - 3w4 based on how you've typed yourself before. I don't know about the order of the last two, it literally depends on whichever one you fall back on when 1w9 fails you in some way.
