    About that gap: we are all staring into the abyss (of one kind or another); but 5s and 4s are closest to it and are thus most aware of it. The 9 is farthest away from the gap and is least aware of it. 5s and 4s are therefore most awake to the existential fact of there being a gap; 9s are least aware of it and the least awakened type.

    I feel like there is a pattern in how the values of the numbers relate to the personality traits they're associated with, but I'm not sure how to describe it. The first two are the most obvious to me (1 seeks the one true solution, 2 seeks a relationship with two people: themselves and another), but after that it gets more vaguely-defined.

    As for why 9 is at the top, I feel like that makes sense because it's the last number. The other most obvious alternative would be to put 1 at the top, which would put 5 and 6 on either end of the "gap." This would also drastically change the lines of integration/disintegration.

    As far as how they're laid out, one take is that it represents a spectrum of neuroses. That's how Naranjo presents it anyhow:

    Starting at pg 14 here, with the diagram on 15: http://www.claudionaranjo.net/pdf_fi...ro_english.pdf

    I'm sure that neurosis descriptions could be bent to fit any ordering or even other shapes (Pentagram of Personality..?), but with this particular spectrum, there's kinda-sorta maybe a factor analysis involved if you squint hard enough.
