Just to realize I was right all along
    I'm not as conflicted as I sound. Not about enneagram anyway. Whatever type I am, I am. It doesn't matter if I label myself correctly or not - I'm still the same person/ same type. The frustration comes from trying to describe myself, I suppose. I feel like people are more likely to understand me and who I am (with or without the number) when they talk to me on threads about other things, or talk to me out of context, but once I start making a case for why I am considering a type, people start seeing things in me that I don't think are there. It shows me that I suck at describing myself, which frustrates me. I am trying to get over this but after years I still only show slight improvement apparently. :P

    I have to say I’m really impressed in how much effort you put into explaining yourself. You wrote so much I had to edit your posts in order to quote them, and the post still ended up huge. Respect, I could never.

    I mean you reinterated the same thing like three times, you've got patience. Detailed explanations too, I would have seen that as justification and not bothered.
    Yeah, I don't really care if it's "justification" or not. It's more important to me that if I'm going to do it, do it thoroughly, and examine all angles. I have nothing to prove in that sense. I will type the way I think is accurate regardless whether others agree, but there are people who know enneagram well and can offer insight, so I might as well show them more of who I am so they have more to work with. Logic? hehe.

    It'd be hard if you ever made it big. Imagine all those people waiting on you when you got backstage
    Hahha. yeah. I used to see it as a worthwhile sacrifice to be able to make a living doing what I love (thus being able to do it all day and not have some shit job eating my life.)

    Show business is hard work. My father was a rockstar - I know the ins and outs of the bullshit that goes on. It's not attractive. I only wanted to do it because I love music - singing, writing, playing, and stage . Being famous is a 'necessary evil' to do what I love and get rich so I can contribute money to causes I believe in, and live comfortably.


    I understand the purpose of explanation, what caught my eye was the lenghts you'd go for it. That and the particular points you stressed.
    Interesting. I don't really see it as lengths. I don't like doing anything halfway - there is no point. Either be thorough or don't bother, is the way I see it.

    Explaining myself is something I really can't do. I find it aggravating.
    It is definitely aggravating, but I try to see it as a challenge. = )

    I didn’t mean you were confused about your type. You sounded confused in your explanation.

    When I said “lengths” I meant literally. Huge walls of text.

    True. Well you'll encounter many other walls of china from me. Haha, get me ranting about type 6 sometime.. I LOVE EM hhehee. I tend to annoy people the most on typing threads because of how uncomfortable it makes me to apply adjectives to myself. It would be easier if I weren't trying to stay anonymous because Im much better at expressing who I am and how I feel through music, art, fiction, clothing, body language etc.

    x2. I use other people works so I don't have to share mine.

    Type 6...don't know any real example.

    I love to ramble about theory too. Ideas.. politics. Many things. But my rambles tend to be fueled by passion. It's hard for me to talk about anything at all if I don't "care" in the moment. Usually things just flow from the heart (even issues where I'm objective but passionately examining premises) but when I'm talking about myself I start thinking too much which mucks it up.

    As a Fi dom I feel so lost in this thread...

    Anyway, I agree with @Look Alive_Sunshine's assessment a couple of pages back.
