    I frequently test as a 5w8, Hap.

    Although the pairing is antithetical to the traditional Enneagram format, I find the combination works better for me than my secondary and tertiary scores of 5w6; 5w4.

    How comfortable are you with leadership? Could you arbitrarily take command over a group of people without feeling insecure? You're in high school - if you had to, could you seize the attention of an entire lunchroom of people?

    Sorry, if anyone noticed the cut-off posts that I deleted...

    Let's not start classifying Enneagram types based on aspects of Instinctual Variants here. Those are seperate.

    In general, you seem much more like a Five to me. Perhaps you aren't comfortable with the typical passiveness of the Five archetype, but between the passive and emotionally subdued model, and the aggressive and emotionally turbulent model, you definitely seem more like the former.

    I usually do end up seizing leadership when it comes to high school projects. The reason is that most people just can't choose a damn direction. It's very annoying when your time is limited.

    The worst part about leadership is that it's impossible to know if the person you tell to do something will actually do what they're told to do. I mean, if you press too hard, they'll go against you, if you don't press hard enough, they'll decide they don't have to, and there are a lot of people out there that won't do anything at all no matter how much you pressure them. So, you know, if you want to get something done right, you have to do it yourself.

    Considering my lunch periods have about 834 people in them each, I suppose I'd be able to catch all of their attention -- however, the means I'd use to do it would probably get me suspended.

    Ti primary
    Fe secondary
    Te tertiary

    I find this communication scheme is often the most efficient means to provide positive leadership.

    I'll keep that in mind.

    This still doesn't answer my question, though.

    I wasn't talking about instinctual variants when I mentioned head-types versus gut-types (and heart-types). I was referring to enneagram's three centers of intelligence. [567=thinking, 891=body, 234=heart]. Clearly this is different from being a self-preserving, sexual, or social personality variant.

    Introverted (I) 60% Extroverted (E) 40%
    Sensing (S) 56.25% Intuitive (N) 43.75%
    Thinking (T) 61.29% Feeling (F) 38.71%
    Judging (J) 71.88% Perceiving (P) 28.13%

    I wasn't talking about that.
    I was refering to the implications that Eights are inately more social and Fives. I don't believe you were part of it.

    Hmm...

    What are the implications of treating objectives and people differently? I don't like mixing people with my objectives, usually...

    Well, most of the other posters have covered the basic perspectives. I can only add that based on taking into account your stacking SX/SP, your hobbies, and the types you've tested as, you are most likely either a 5w4, or an 8w9. This would theoretically depend on whether you were integrating, or disintegrating at present.

    Your emphasis seems less on analysis and comprehenision vs. getting things accomplished, for what it's worth. I wouldn't have thought you seemed ruthless/power-seeking enough to be an 8, but the 9 wing could explain why.

    There is something a little off of this, since you don't really seem as much like an SX type 8 according to some descriptions, but again the 9 wing might balance that out.

    So, I'd say that 8w9 is my current guess, with 5w4 as a reserve guess.

    Very interesting.

    The thing that's causing the most problems here would be is the deciding factor comprehension versus control, or something else?

    If it's comprehension versus control, I'm definitely an 8. However, I'm very low-energy and intensely private (which both seem to be correlated with 5, but then again, that could be introversion.), somewhat artistically inclined (4?), and my controlling nature doesn't extend too much to people.
