    I think we deserve another autism point for this one - "Submerged anger that manifests as stubbornness"

    If this is what the Enneagram wing scale really is, then it would seem I've developed in fact several direct correlates to it in supersocion theory. w1 = radical, w2 = saint

    Obama's a w9, McCain a w8. Bill Clinton is a w3.

    Just type (majoritarian) = 9
    puritanical type = 8
    field moralist = 3

    All of which correspond directly to aspect relation patterns under model B.

    also, I think E9s do that push-pull relationship thing. that's not limited to E4s.

    I thought 2s came across as having bad social manners, unless healthy.
