    Default Opinions/thoughts on enneagram brethren with the other wing

    So what are your opinions/thoughts on people who share your primary enneagram but have the other wing.

    I will start.
    I am an enneagram 5w4 so I will comment on 5w6.
    They strike me as having an easier time fitting in and "playing the game" that is so important in society.
    On the negative side, they seem to be harder to get know deeply.

    Anyways post your thoughts.

    As a 9w1 I tend to view my w8 brethren as being more assertive and outspoken in getting the peace and also less fettered and shame ridden but they can also be in many ways cause more conflict than they intend too by lashing out with that w8.

    Interesting. I thought that 5w6 might be more considerate and easier to get along with/get to know in general, what with sixes generally being more aware of the impacts of their behaviour on others and being a more people-oriented five than the 5w4.

    Well, the 5w6 are more "normal". And the 5w4 probably are more self-absorbed.

    Feels like 5w6 have more jobs suited for them than the 5w4 also.

    4w3 seems less of a self-contained cripple.

    6w7s tend to be phobic, which, if combined with other specific traits, can give me a visceral negative reaction that makes me want to avoid them. On the other hand, I can also end up feeling protective and motherly. It depends on the person.

    I think 6w7s fit the general type six description more than 6w5s. 6w5s gather information to feel secure, while 6w7s focus on other means of distraction. 6w5s tend to have a more focused energy while for 6w7s, it tends to be more scattered.

    Sixes are either super by the book or super against the book. By the book w7 and w5s are quite different than against the book w7 and w5s, so it's sort of hard to generalize.

    4w3s:
    more outwardly expressive and dramatic
    more functional in society
    more volatile
    more performatively unique


    i relate a bit more to 5w4s than 4w3s.

    4w5 seems to have a bad rep. Overall it seems one "should" not occupy the bottom of the enneagram like the 4w5 and 5w4 does. Although I have a feeling that the 4w5 gets more flak than the 5w4 for some reason. I wonder why that is.

    As a 9w1.... I've never met 9w8's in person, but they strike me as more balanced than 9w1's. As a 9w1 I tend to be more of a pushover, and will be extremely hesitant to state assertions & opinions, but 9w8's seem to have a fire that unleashes when they can't hold in their inner conflicts anymore. They seem more likely to voice what they're feeling/thinking, while I have a much harder time even getting it out there in the first place. I'm not often even aware of my own anger & conflicts until it's brought to my attention, but 9w8's seem to have a better awareness. Correct me if I'm wrong, though.

    Have not gotten that impression at all.
