    Default An interesting way of thinking about enneagram types

    Whilst searching for sp/sx and sp/so descriptions I stumbled upon this article which framed enneagram in a way I have not seen before.

    Thinking Triad

    5 – Expresses Thinking too much

    Instinctive Triad

    8 – Expresses Instinct too much
    9 – Out of touch with Instinct
    1 – Expresses Instinct too little

    This might help:

    Each of the 3 Triads are associated with a "Centre" or function of human intelligence:

    - Instinctive Triad, or gut centre (Enneagram numbers 8/9/1)
    - Feeling Triad, or heart centre (Enneagram numbers 2/3/4)
    - Thinking Triad, or head centre (Enneagram numbers 5/6/7)
