    Default What is your enneagram type?

    Answer the poll (public) and, if you like, post a couple sentences about what most draws you to identify as that type.

    5: When it comes down to it, I can strongly relate to the negatives of the type the most. Also, I am highly introverted extrovert (people are usually split on this). Of course, the flavor is going to differ from the INTX variety.

    There were quite a few tendencies in e5 descriptions that resonated, some of which I'd actually noticed about myself (prior to finding out about enneagram) and had wondered why I had them. A few that come to mind are the compulsive urge to withdraw and mentally prepare for things; to keep preparing, and to feel like the 'preparing' is never really enough, it always feel like I need to study something 'a little bit more' before acting on it; and not feeling affect while participating in social events- it hits me later when no one is around, but I feel very stoic while participating. Finding e5 descriptions just clicked for me and made sense of a great many of my instincts.

    It's a close call between 4 and 1, but I think I'm a bit more 4-like than 1-like.

    I'm a type 6, probably 6w5.

    I'm anxious, worrying, loyal, imaginative, cautiously friendly, and although I'm an introvert, I'm kind of an "ambivert" - not heavily heavily introverted, and I can certainly appear extroverted. (People often don't believe me if I say I'm an introvert.)

    All of these are 6 characteristics and fit me well - more so than the main characteristics of any other e-type.

    I personally identify with type nine, though it may not be correct of my true self.

    If I had to identify with anything other, I would say type five.

    Perhaps I am 9w5, or 9w1, or 9w8, maybe 5w9.

    9w5 sounds nice

    We have called personality type Nine The Peacemaker because no type is more devoted to the quest for internal and external peace for themselves and others. They are typically “spiritual seekers” who have a great yearning for connection with the cosmos, as well as with other people.

    I have been on a personal spiritual journey for some time; I yearn to know the grand unifying theory behind all existence, and I have accepted it may not lie in one single answer, but through constant practice of existential philosophies.

    We have sometimes called the Nine the crown of the Enneagram because it is at the top of the symbol and because it seems to include the whole of it. Nines can have the strength of Eights, the sense of fun and adventure of Sevens, the dutifulness of Sixes, the intellectualism of Fives, the creativity of Fours, the attractiveness of Threes, the generosity of Twos, and the idealism of Ones. However, what they generally do not have is a sense of really inhabiting themselves—a strong sense of their own identity.

    In line with my quest of dissolving all ego.

    Ironically, therefore, the only type the Nine is not like is the Nine itself. Being a separate self, an individual who must assert herself against others, is terrifying to Nines. They would rather melt into someone else or quietly follow their idyllic daydreams.

    I've oft been puzzled when people state they could not not work for a living. My favorite hobby is being. If I could make 30k a year for the rest of my life doing nothing, I would gladly accept.

    Nines demonstrate the universal temptation to ignore the disturbing aspects of life and to seek some degree of peace and comfort by “numbing out.” They respond to pain and suffering by attempting to live in a state of premature peacefulness, whether it is in a state of false spiritual attainment, or in more gross denial.

    "Blissfully ignorant" is a term I've vocalized about myself on multiple occasions. I don't find the need of focusing on, for example, what's wrong with society, unless there is something to be done directly about it. It's like complaining about the color red, or how 2+2=4.

    To emphasize the pleasant in life is not a bad thing, of course—it is simply a limited and limiting approach to life. If Nines see the silver lining in every cloud as a way of protecting themselves from the cold and rain, other types have their distorting viewpoints, too. For example, Fours focus on their own woundedness and victimization, Ones on what is wrong with how things are, and so forth. By contrast, Nines tend to focus on the “bright side of life” so that their peace of mind will not be shaken. But rather than deny the dark side of life, what Nines must understand is that all of the perspectives presented by the other types are true, too. Nines must resist the urge to escape into “premature Buddhahood” or the “white light” of the Divine and away from the mundane world. They must remember that “the only way out is through.”

    I find it particularly interesting that I identify strongly with Buddhist beliefs, and identified strong with the nine type during reading prior to them linking Buddhism and the nine type together. It was as if everything I had stood for in my life were jot down on paper, and I was overcome with emotion.

    I could likely copy paste most lines from most descriptions and find a way to relate to it. Reading any other type description simply doesn't do it the same as type nine does, though.

    6w7. I don't know that I am even this type. It just seemed right last time I looked into it. (Goes back to look again.)

    pretty sure i'm a 6. there's a link on this site that i think gives one of the best 6 descriptions i've ever read; it says that the root fear of being a 6 is a lack of meaning/purpose, and (i'm adding something in here), that what we take to be our fears (how we consciously perceive them) is really just the core anxiety latching onto fragments of our environment in an attempt to misdirect our own awareness away from the real problem--like anyone with a problem.
