    This question confuses me a bit. My gut reaction was LIE--so disciplined, so good at planning and accomplishing things, so ambitious--but then my dual would be ESI, and as I am actually an EII, I don't super get along with ESIs. But I guess the point is that I would, as an LIE. I like my instinctual stacking just fine, but might change my enneagram.

    So LIE 2w3 so/sx for me.

    Enneagram 2 is supposed to be the "helper". I find it hard to see an LIE as a primarily helpful person. LIE's are typically e8 or e3, FWIW, and my guess is that if you were LIE, you might not have much choice in that area.

    I actually do help some people, and it often appears that I'm doing it selflessly with no obvious benefit (and sometimes some apparent loss) to myself, but really, I'm driven by a need for efficiency. Seeing someone struggle with something awakens the urge in us to make things more efficient and streamlined by helping them do better, because efficiency makes the world go 'round for LIE's. And our apparent "giving" usually comes back to us in one form or another.

    And yes, you would also like ESI's. They can be hard to take at first, but the more I'm around them, the better I like them.

    When considering your choice of LIE as an alternate sociotype, you might want to consider the aberrations you might have to possess to want an ESI as your constant companion.
    I was just reviewing some notes I made while working with an ESI on some contractual artworks, and she was late with the deliverables, communicated minimally (but did communicate), went her own way constantly, was fairly eccentric, and she more than doubled her quoted price on the final work (I made the mistake of explaining to her how she needed to price her work for profit, and she did ), and I'd do it all over in a heartbeat just to work with her again.
    To me, working with an ESI is like opening the door to a shack and finding a palace inside.
    Duality, experienced in person, over time, is really something else.

    A smart SLE-Ti, not the faux Kill4Me bullshit, but a Hannibal kind of personality...but maybe with a little more compassion.

    just extroversion. I see very little benefit in being introverted.

    My second favorite would be my dual, the 6w5 sp/sx version. Would be nice to notice my surroundings more & be able to actually feel my body (I always forget I have one), better organization skills would also rock.

    I would like to be either a 7w8 or an 8w7 for enneagram type. More outwardly fun, self-confident, less stuck in my head and my thoughts.

    this is a tough question
    I prefer a perfect type but since it doesn't exist I will go with Ti-dom (LSI or LII)

    For a more permanent change, I'd be an IEI-Ni or an EII-Fi, which are my two favourite types. That, and having a 7w8 head fix instead of 5w6 would be interesting too.

    And please guys stop saying sx is "intense experiences". That's too general and can apply to many who aren't sx firsts. Sx is sexual, sexual and sexual.

    I'm sorry, but you literally just contradicted yourself by saying "Sx is only literally sex" followed by a bunch of stuff explaining how it isn't, including how it's actually death. We all know Sx is the feisting of life and the dance of death across the stage of the world, or else no one under the age of consent would (should) be Sx. Also, just getting laid is waaay too easy to be a good life's goal

    IEE, SLI or ILE. LII would be cool too. EIE sounds pretty cool too. ESI as well. Would probably try a number if I could (though my functions would change every time, so I'm not sure if I would retain that wish). IEI and ILI too. Hmm

    Also, I want to be an LSE for just one day. To get everything done and eat properly.

    Also, extensive thought experiment: How would it be to live as a healthy version of my type?

    What would I want to change afterwards (since I want to become healthier)? How great would the disparity between me and the healthy version be? What types of sacrifices would I have to make to become this person? What specific benefits would manifest, for me and others? What if I am already at my healthiest point? What if my healthy version is already manifested and there's nothing wrong with me? Or what if a healthy version is not achievable or realistic? What if wanting to be this healthy me means to work against myself? Vice versa: What if becoming healthy is surprisingly very easy?

    Well if you´re extroverted you can´t decide if you should be influenced by some external factors or not. They are just there and you automatically feel forced to act on them regardless of wether it may or may not be beneficial for your own sanity or integrity over the long term.

    Good point, there's quite a downside to it as well. It's about choosing the lesser evil in this thread
