# Thread: I keep getting different Enneagram answers..

1. Based on your answers to my question, you share the basic fears of Type 3 and Type 5 with the basic desires of Type 5 and Type 4.
Type 5 appears to be the common denominator for this method.

2. Okay, so I wrote out a monstrously long description of my personality, but I think it's too much, especially since I'm finding that I agree with the consensus that I'm a 5. I'm thinking 5w4, 9w1, 4w5 is probably the accurate order, although does the order matter much for the tritype? Also, if someone shares two bordering types, for instance, a 5 and a 4, are they ever a 5w6, 4w3 (I'm not claiming this for myself)? Because I've seen a lot of pairs like my 5w4 and 4w5 in people's tritype, which makes sense, but I don't know if anyone can identify as having a different wing than their adjacent tritype number.

3. It's entirely possible to be a 5w4 - 9w1 - 4w5, it's just much less common than other tritypes.
Now I'm not saying you aren't one, but you probably want to go look at the type description for "the Contemplative" (I think that's 459's name)
By the way 594 is a triple withdrawn type, meaning you would be heavily introverted, anywhere from lonely to complete hermit.

Also, look up the stackings for 5w4 to see which ones you identify with the most.
(A stacking is the so/sx, sp/so, so/sx, and all of the different combinations)

Oh, yes each tritype has like sub-tritypes in a way. So if you are more 5 than you are 9 and 4, 5 goes first in the first slot, and if you are more 9 than you are 4, then 9 goes in the second slot.
So that would be 594.

4. I believe I was reading the 5w4 stacking descriptions when so/sx seemed definitely right, so that's good news!

I am heavily introverted, although I've made great strides in the last several years in opening up and letting people see the "real me," as it were. Because the real me is a silly and goofy kid who always wants to play, but the me you meet is a quiet and serious person who doesn't speak up unless he has something important to contribute.

I think my 9 and 4 are pretty close to each other. I will go find those 594 descriptions again; I perused them the other day.

Thank you, all of you!! If you feel like reading an essay, I can post what I wrote out earlier and see if a better ordering appears to you. But for now, I'll just go read.
