    There is no such thing as a 7w5, only a 7 with a line to 5. You're either a 7w6 or 7w8.

    I have an idea. Tell me how I'm wrong, instead of just telling me that I'm wrong.

    7w5 is an interesting choice because 7s and 5s are very different. I don't know exactly what one would get with two parts 7 and one part 5. You're tellins use that we get someone like you.

    I say you seem a lot like an 8. I'm trying to figure out if some 7/5 mixture would logically appear to be like an 8. If it is similar, then the question is. is it similar enough to even bother calling a 7w5, or should we just call you 8 anyway?

    You don't really seem to feign positivity enough to be a 7. You're too openly cynical. You don't pretend to be friendly either.

    Default The problem with this system.

    If it weren't for having to have the numbers connected by lines to the nearest number on either side, I'd be a 4w2, but since there isn't such an option, I'm just a 4w5. It doesn't seem as accurate, and I think the entire system is overly limited. Why shouldn't 7w5 or 4w2 be options if they seem to apply to people better than the traditionally accepted options. Would changing the rules make it more complex to figure out some other aspect of behavior?

    Well, no. I recommend ignoring the conventional wing theory. I was just observing that of all the particular combinations, 7w5 combines two such different types that it's a little funky trying to imagine what the combination entails.

    I have little faith in the proposed inherent structures of any psychological typing system.

    We don't know enough.

    Jung and enneagram types themselves seem to be similar in that they don't do much other than describe a specific behavior, without expounding too greatly on specific manifestations, leaving the door open for every possibility.

    Traditional format dictates that my type is closer to the 5w6 banner.

    8 is closer to my normal behavior than 6. I share many more qualities with the archetypal 8 than I do with type 6.

    I don't see the point in misrepresenting myself for the sake of adherence to tradition - especially within a formula constructed to test something as oblique as the Enneagram.

    5w7 is how I see you.

    Agree.
    I still say I identify with those two more than 8, though CERTAINLY 8 is next on the list.
