    Nah, you're a 3.
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    3's and 5's imo have similar drives. But when I get too much attention I go away, positive or negative.

    I won't say I don't have 3ness since I would pick that as a tritype but I've always kept my self in isolation and liked people who were ok with that.

    Don't worry, you're just humble.

    Interesting. Me too.

    Imo E type is somewhat confusing and not as definite.

    The tri-type of 3-5-8 is pretty good description of me.

    If I am a 3 then sp/sx would be better instinct.
    If I am a 5 then sx/sp would be better instinct.

    I'm pretty sure I'm a 8 last of 358 combinations, so it would be 538 or 358.

    I don't think I'm really sp primary, because many of the things sp embody or is described is simply not me. I do like sp/sx women tho.

    What about sp doesn't fit?

    I prefer to all my best thinking outside, or in a bar, or in conversation with someone(generally just one person). I really hate being at home and such because I'm just playing a video game or reading something and it's a huge waste of time.

    I'm not someone that would be happy working from home, I prefer the office environment even if I don't really talk to anyone in the office. Being at home is just stagnant and something I enjoy but I don't like being cooped up inside. I do like my home to be pleasant and attractive, but I spend minimal time doing this.

    I'm not soc I don't think but I generally go out at least 3-4 nights a week, I used to do this 5-6 nights a week and was never home. My soc/sx friend goes out 7 nights a week and it's impossible for me to maintain that level of social life.

They live according to a strictly personal outlook and are not particularly concerned with the approval of others outside of their immediate concern. They seem to be searching for something, the missing piece. If they find a soulmate they will unite without fanfare, forming a secret bond, dealing with formalities as an afterthought. Powerful sexual impulses facing inner resistance may manifest symbolically in the psyche, giving way to soulful interpretations of the unconscious. Under periods of stress severe sexual tensions may manifest as erratic, impulsively destructive behavior. Can seem restless, torn between the comforts of a stable home life and the urge to wander. May be prone to self-medicating.


    This is a very good way to describe me vs sp/sx descriptions.

    Hk it never occurred to me that you're a 5. It doesn't really make sense. 3 seems like a much better typing, and I don't even know what enneagram you are (you might not be a 3, but definitely not a 5, IMHO).

    That's interesting, since I think 5 is how I see myself. I've spent most of my life developing my skills in various things, like computers, etc, in order to be able to do things as good as possible. I think 5/3 are very similar and one of the things where I think I most differ from a 3 is this.

    I don't know if it's natural or just my fear of intimacy/abandonment, but I tend to rub people the wrong way with my social interactions and the way I promote my ideas. I generally rely on people coming back to me because they need my expertise.
