    I think you're 729.
    And so long as you haven’t experienced this: to die and so to grow,
    you are only a troubled guest on the dark earth

    I think there'll be quite a few people that will disagree with me here but I'm going with 8 for you. I (personally, imo) think it's a mistake to try and rule a point like 8... either in or out on the basis of how reactive an individual is...or 9 by how seemingly peace-loving a person appears to be. <-If we're trying to ascertain an individual's core type...Yes. But here were talking about a fix... and while we may speculate as to what that may "look like" ...no one really knows. I mean, there are so many problems with the core descriptions already ha.

    All I want to know is "when the shit comes down" what is Chanaynay going to do? What is your trigger? Yes, you want peace and social niceties...but when you are pushed too far I believe you will stand your ground and fight.

    I think so too @Starry.

    I also think anyone with the nickname "the King of Extroversion" needs something other than a 9 to explain that haha.

    Heh.

    Also, I guess the stuff I posted on the first page would really only be helpful for figuring out your core, if anything, huh.

    I feel kinda weird right now...I'm working on a small screen and I didn't read through the responses. I would have surely phrased my post differently if I had. The truth of it...is there are a variety of ways to go about these things. The other day...I had commented on another members type...and that individual responded by saying something along the lines of..."I don't think someone that doesn't know me very well could know my type..." And yet in my experience...for what we are examining/discussing here...I see more accurate typings out of individuals that don't know each other well precisely because we are dealing with sorta these "superficial outlines." ime sometimes the more we know of a person...the most confusing things become...the more of our own personal expectations and crap we've dumped onto another person the closer to them we become. <-My point is merely to say there's no right or wrong way to do this. Everyone has their own methods...and there's much we can learn from one another. My comments were to Chanaynay since I saw nothing of the core issues in his op haha. Edit: you can consider behavior...but Chanaynay himself needs to decide on the core issues...if that makes more sense.

    Not to focus so much on anger...

    The main things I exhibit that make me confident in my 8ness.. despite others disagreeing at times:

    - My anger is a measurable and very real part of my daily life. It motivates me, or de-motivates me, depending.. but it is not something I can avoid. I'm an angry person. This isn't to be confused for being unhealthy.. I clearly don't go around yelling at people all the time, or losing my temper at any one thing. But controlling my anger was something I had to learn at a young age, and I struggled with it growing up. Usually I'll pick up trash not because "Oh, yay, I'm helping the environment! and I wouldn't want to see litter around... " but more "What an ass, throwing this cup on the ground. Fuck him or her." Part of the reason I feel so much better about exercise is because its a healthy way to vent my stress and anger--and I do have it. I'm a very happy, optimistic, and chipper person.. almost to an annoying extent sometimes. But my anger is a major motivator for me to actually move.

    - The only thing more motivating than my anger is my feeling of needing to be in control. I dislike the court systems and judge them based on the fact that it's almost always out of your [read: my] control and you're at the whim of others who don't recognize common sense. I liked my career in the army because I actually had some say in how jobs went, and who was working under me and how I ran things. I'm going to school now even though I HATE school so much because I want to be in control of my life and my current career choice is allowing me to do that. I get scared to start relationships, even though I know I want one to last in my life, because it really is out of my control.. I can only do so much--I have to rely on the other person entirely.. and their minds change a lot quicker than mine tends to. I love budgets because they're visible "I love me and the control I have in my life" documents. Everything is about this sense of independence and control.

    - When I do participate in things out of my control, and that I'm not allowed to be angry at, I am very, very hesitant to let them go. I have a best friend currently that sucks as a best friend, and I'm about to tell her to take someone else to a musical I spent money on for her and I to go. But I'm really scared to just say that even though I want to.. because I've spent a lot of time with her being my friend. I really don't have any female friends after she's going to be gone.. and there's no way for me to change that entirely on my own. I have to have females wanting to be close friends to me--not a common thing to find at my age.. usually you make them young.

    - Challenges come in all forms. I am very competitive--with myself.. not so much with others. I like the occasional games, I like watching sports and my teams winning, etc. But the major way I challenge myself is in my own life. I wanted to control my anger because it was challenging for me--and I wanted control of my life. It all fit together perfectly. I'm challenging myself to work within a budget. To build a house despite having never built a structure on my own before. I don't really challenge others, and I think social conditioning is a lot to blame for that (i.e. I never win wrestling matches with dudes back when I did that a lot.. not because I couldn't.. but sometimes because I just knew it wouldn't benefit either of us. I'd get pissed that they'd claim they went soft when I know they didn't, and if I lost then.. meh.. all's normal..), but it works out in the end because I'm pretty good at challenging ideas and concepts without being truly upset about them. Not perfect.. and I think I do frequently come across as really bitchy or angry when I really feel I'm not and have no intentions to be. No, not perfect at all. But it's something in the right direction.

    - I have resting bitchy face. That's apparently a thing, and I definitely have it. (Note: this has nothing to do with anything.)

    I don't feel like I'm unhealthy, and there are many things I've learned in my life to just live-and-let-live.. and I'm still learning how to do that. But the big difference I see between myself and others is--I'm LEARNING it.. It doesn't come naturally to me. I'm completely cool with people being hippies about their health despite not agreeing with them entirely, but I had to learn to be cool with that for my own sake. It's a work in progress, and one I'm getting better at with time and age.

    Just my two cents. Sorry it's long.

    Interesting starry. Would 9w8 be like a good middle ground? I see what you mean, Chan about your extra extroversion. It's more of a direct drive you have than me, which seems to be a good argument for something 8-ish in there. I've seen you take hard stances and react when something comes up, but not being able to recall the last time you really got angry makes me think 9w8 might be more likely. I read 9w8 called 'the mountain' before. So maybe that isn't 'forward' enough gut energy...8w9?
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    Contrary to the laid-back reputation of the peaceful 9...both the 9w8 & the 9w1 (but moreso the 9w8) can react aggressively/assertively when tested. I personally believe this goes for cores as well as fixes but especially for fixes I think everything needs to be stripped away so that all the individual is considering are the core fears of the...what the hell are they called haha I can't remember...whatever...the group. Chanaynay has already ruled out 1 so in my mind that leaves but two questions he needs to ask himself... "when the shit comes down" ...is he more likely to fight or 'flight.'

    What do you fear more Chanaynay...being controlled or being separated?

    ^^I guess I should add that...if Chanaynay was a 729 and a social dom...I would expect him to never react to much really. I can't explain what I have seen of him with merely an 8 wing of a fix. He's still quite young and he's pretty dominant/forceful...and I actually would expect him to become moreso as he ages... but that's just my take on things.
