I strongly agree with Victor Gulenko that Dostoevsky was an EIE (like Robespierre). interesting that nobody voted for this type in the poll.
Dual type (as per tcaudilllg)
Enneagram 2w1sw(1w9) helps others to live up to their own standards of what a good person is and is very behind the scenes in the process.
Tritype 1-2-6 stacking sp/sx
I'm constantly looking to align the real with the ideal.I've been more oriented toward being overly idealistic by expecting the real to match the ideal. My thinking side is dominent. The result is that sometimes I can be overly impersonal or self-centered in my approach, not being understanding of others in the process and simply thinking "you should do this" or "everyone should follor this rule"..."regardless of how they feel or where they're coming from"which just isn't a good attitude to have. It is a way, though, to give oneself an artificial sense of self-justification. LSE
Best description of functions:
Crime and Punishment confirmed all my preceding observations and more. What qualifies it is the 4w5 sp/sx'ness, most EIIs are 1s or 9s, and not contra-flow. Anyway the point to me was that he was always reaching for a standalone feeling which no character could ever fully embody. Why else would Crime and Punishment have ended the way it did...
yeah and the Idiot himself, the heavy delineation of the ties between the characters, their motives, the way in which his characters go beyond what is considered socially acceptable.. he's been described as the first psychologist for a reason.
I haven't read Crime and Punishment, nor the Fall, but Camus on the other end seems to me to play more with Ni + Fe. I used to love Camus for what I've read... some of his images have been stuck in my head for a long time.
Yeah, Camus is my all time favorite, though I haven't read The Plague, but The Fall is brilliant. But I agree about the types, some here type Camus EII because they misread his ethos, which is about a humanism that isn't "quite human," i.e. The Stranger. Whereas Dostoevsky is more naturally ensconced in whatever condition.
I think Camus was an EIE too.
People seem to have an odd tendency to try to type Dostoevsky only from having read his fiction, without knowing much about his life and the context within which he wrote. At that, the closest writers I can think of when it comes to writing style are Shakespeare and Faulkner, neither of whom were Delta.
IxFx type have some of the widest spread of enneagram types btw and most EIIs are half syn-flow and half-contra.

I also pretty much agree with Gulenko on all of his EIE typings.
regarding Dostoevsky: I've read almost all of his novels and short stories. I guess I'm very sure of his type. (but like always, it's just my opinion). as a Ti dominant type I'm prone to often being too sure on something I guess...
