I'm a 925. Where's my medal? I was told there'd be medals.
I'm going to guess this guy's type is 9 "seducer" sx/sp. He seems so sweet. (but the topic is like isn't that mild autism?)
This is sooo accurate with many 9s.
I've noticed the 2nd one too, with certain 9s. Many 9s in enneagram groups and typology forums have been like that.Nine: Hyperactivity
The passion of Nines is sloth and the counterpassion is a caricature of the virtue of activity. Nines are then hyperactive, perpetually agitated and overloaded with tasks. Although they often produce quantities of work effectively, idleness is still present: these activities are practical but have the effect that the more Nines do, the more they forget themselves. This counterpassion is one of the first we observed, and we interpreted it at the time that these Nines use work and activities as a means of narcotisation (their principal defense mechanism).
An even more subtle form of Nine's counterpassion is a hyperactive pursuit personal development. Such Nines devour books, workshops, therapists, and gurus. They profess to thirst after self-knowledge; however, they end up spinning their wheels, changing nothing.

this girl is probably an EIE 9. it's like she's falling asleep in her videos
Hey guys, I'm a 9 soc/sx , a countertype
Reminds me of that time when I wanted to figure out with a 9w1 friend (SEI) what movie we should watch.
Me: "What movie would you like to see?"
Her: "Whatever you want."
Me: "Well, how about this one."
She pauses for a split second, I can tell she is not really into it by her facial expression, but she just goes with:
Her: "If you want..."
It was apparent she did not want to see any of the offers I was making, so I brushed it off and said:
Me: "We don't have to watch a movie. Let's do something else."
Being a fellow 9 fix, I understood where she was coming from, so I didn't want to make a decision that would push her into doing something she didn't want to do. Also, my 9 fix made me indecisive about the movie choice, too.
With my ex, she mainly liked going to the places to eat where she had been before and she ordered the same thing, but if you asked her what she wanted if, say, you were bringing something home, she'd be OK with anything. She didn't seem to have preferences, which seemed so strange to me.
I think she was primarily an e5, because she needed privacy and was a minimalist, while insisting on having whatever she needed for an independent mental life. She had great boundaries and sought clear agreements, and basically was completely, emotionally self-controlled, all of which I associate with e5's.
My understanding of e9's is that they are very flexible in what they want, and my ex was just the opposite of that for most of the things in her life.

Shpongle - Around The World In A Tea Daze
shpongle's music is definitely heavily 9-influenced (though I don't think it's simon or raja's base type), but overall it's always struck me as more syn-flow, so/sx if I had to choose a stacking (maybe sx subtype). contra-flow electronica tends to be a bit coarser in feel, i.e. infected always maintains a certain detachment even in their more emotional songs.
Björk has a similar song
And then there's Marvin Gaye, with an 8 wing. His are a little less "magical" and more straight to the point :
When 9 lets out their anger.
And I'm what you desire, like a siren in the night

Self-pres 9w1 atmosphere
"..E9, as resident of the Gut triad, has a significant underlying compulsion toward self-reliance/autonomy — the very opposite of all this adjusting and maneuvering to make things OK in their surroundings. So the Gut’s independence streak is continually contributing to some backlog of rebellion and resistance to the concurrent program of appeasing the environment. This is where stubbornness comes in as a strategy. Since direct expression of aggression is largely verboten in this type, a significant portion of 9’s repressed defiance and friction finds safe expression in becoming an immovable object — a thousand pound boulder that can’t be budged in relation to certain issues or beliefs or circumstances."
This is so good
