Enneagram type 9, conflict and personal relations
SO. type 9 on the enneagram *mostly* likes/accepts everyone? how does this affect intertype relations?
do they force themselves to accept everyone, or do they just naturally accept everyone?
and what is this talk about repressed anger? i used to think that im never angry because, well, im just slow to anger, that's all.
Just because they avoid conflict doesn't mean they like/accept everyone.
9s are naturally detached from internal rage. 1s are more inclined to actual repression of anger. 1s tend to use their anger constructively though. 9s aren't as aware of their anger, but may consciously repress it most often in 9w1. 9w8s are more like simmering volcanoes who will burst if pushed too hard, but is very hard to work up. 9w8s are least aware of their anger, and will tend toward believing they never get angry even though they occasionally have outbursts. 9w1 brings a more idealistic outlook and have more of a focus on actual avoidance of conflict. 9w8s have a more down to earth outlook and brush off conflict.
another question: how is it possible to be type 9 (conflict avoidant) and be IEI ( dual seeking)?
Se isn't about conflict. Se is about being impulsive, decisive, and centered in immediate action. There is really no interference between 9 and Se-DS.
