    Default Temp States (Enneagram)

    Here's some ideas I saw on Stackemup.net. What do you think?

High temps swing between the levels of health for their type more rapidly than other temperaments and have an easier time than the other temperaments getting themselves out of a depressive period. Tendency towards explosion when angry. Fastest rate of type specific physical tells per minute which can even make a sp-first look like a sp-last. A high temp modifies the fixations’ outer energy in a way that sometimes creates superficial similarities to an assertive or counterphobic type.

    Medium Temperament (medium temp): Medium temps have more compliant-like energy, live moderately and tend to be repetitive, though with an underlying split, that can show itself in a Jekyll and hyde energy. Often represent a balance between the high and low temperaments. They have a normative perception of time and the most politically correct filters when it comes to the expression of their fixation. They have the most moderate swings up and down the levels of health for their type and rarely experience the highest or lowest levels. Medium temps are the most common temperament.

    Low temperament (Low temp): Low temps have more withdrawn-like energy, are reserved, contemplating, unreactive, “wintery”. They perceive time to move at a slower rate than the normative perception of time and have the most sophisticated filters when it comes to the expression of their fixation. They have the least rapid swings up and down the levels of health for their type but when a low temp goes down in health, they tend to get dug in for a longer duration of time. They have a harder time than the other temperaments getting themselves out of a depressive period. Insular, often a glacial calm, tendency towards implosion when angry. Slowest rate of type specific physical tells per minute which can even make a sp-last look like a sp-first. A low temp modifies the fixations’ energy in a way that sometimes creates superficial similarities to a withdrawn or phobic type.

    Neat. Does this overlay enneagram types or is this another re-grouping of the triads?

    I relate to medium temperament. High temp moods seem to swerve between extremes. I've met such people before and they are either up and moving ahead at twice the pace of everyone else or they are in a very low down.
