    The reason I did not pick 7w8 is that I've spent too much time weeding out behaviors and traits that I inherited from him. I could not see myself being anything other than an id type without losing a big portion of what I value in myself, so I picked 3w4. Nevertheless I would not claim my father's narcissism inhibited his success or his ability to inspire And be generous to others.

    1) What is your enneagram core type and tritype?
    4w5, most likely 478, I don't know how much you can rely on the whole tritype thing but it might explain in my case why people seem to think I'm an E7 or an E8 sometimes.
    2) If you had to be an enneagram type other than your own, which would it be? (You must choose a core other than your own, but you can pick the wing if you'd like.)
    If you asked me a while back I would probably answered 7w8 or 8w7, but now if I really got the chance to choose I would chose none other than my own type.
    Reasons?... Here:
    4s at their best:
    Profoundly creative, expressing the personal and the universal, possibly in a work of art. Inspired, self-renewing and regenerating: able to transform all their experiences into something valuable: self-creative.
    5s at their best:
    Become visionaries, broadly comprehending the world while penetrating it profoundly. Open-minded, take things in whole, in their true context. Make pioneering discoveries and find entirely new ways of doing and perceiving things.
    Combine those two and you have the best of both worlds.
    3) If you could imagine an ideal SO, what enneagram type would he or she be?
    hmm... I depends on the person, I like 4s, 5s, 7s and 8s, sometimes 6s.
    Other 4s: when I feel the need to overdose on drama lol
    5s: I find them mentally stimulating which is something that I crave to find in people I'm interested in
    6s: they can be fascinating people
    7s: dat charm lol!
    8s: ...
    4) If you had to have one child, and you could choose his/her enneagram type, what would it be?
    I don't have to do anything.

    Wouldn't you say it's quite appropriate that right now, on the bar graph, 7w8 sticks out like a giant phallus :P

    1) What is your enneagram core type and tritype?


    Core is 8w9 sx/sp. Tritype is 872.

    2) If you had to be an enneagram type other than your own, which would it be? (You must choose a core other than your own, but you can pick the wing if you'd like.)

    I'm actually pretty happy with what I'm working with. My inner ISFP is pretty 4ish, and that's a part of myself I really revel in. I could do 4w5 for a minute.


    3) If you could imagine an ideal SO, what enneagram type would he or she be?

    The guys I tend to whom I'm most attracted tend to be charismatic and as idealistic as they are pragmatic. Maybe a touch on the tempestuous side as well. I seek out men who have an elemental quality to them. Visionaries and young masters of the universe. That kind of thing. I've been involve with various kinds who have those qualities, but most of them do seem to have some sort of connect to 3. Either as 3s themselves, as a wing, or as a disintegration/integration point.

    4) If you had to have one child, and you could choose his/her enneagram type, what would it be?


    This question is funny because implicit in it is the question, "Which failing would you prefer as a parent?" As much as I'd love a kid who was a 7, I would never want to think that at some point my baby felt that he or she wouldn't have everything they wanted or needed. Or some little 9 who felt that they were punished for exerting themselves in their environment. Maybe a 1 as I can't remember what their pathology is right now, and it'd be nice to feel that I'd raised a child with those kinds of principles.
    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

    That's funny you'd see it that way because that's not how I interpreted it at all. Rather, I saw it as the ability to give myself what I never got as a child.

    It's just the way that the system works. You can't get the gift without the wound.
