    Default w1 and rage

    What types (besides 8 of course) do you associate with rage?

    This is a good topic.

    I haven't talked about enneagram in ages so my knowledge is kinda rusty. Forgive me for that, but posting and talking about it will helpfully get me back into the swing of things once again <3. 1 is a part of the anger/gut triad along with 8 and 9. Where 8 is expressive of anger, and 9 is unaware of anger to the point where they reach indolence, 1 is always trying to repress their anger and move it outwards to create structure. IMO the unhealthier 1s and w1s can actually be more internally "angrier" than 8s, and this tends to seep out in unhealthy ways where they become hypercritical and even abusive/violent towards others. This is really only in extreme cases though.

    There can certainly be a lot of rage kept within 1s and w1s and I'm not sure why people associate "rage" with purely 8 or w8. Both are pretty control oriented but the reasons for wanting control are completely different. The 1s need to reorient anger that they feel they can't express to create order and structure where it needs to be established VS. how 8s freely express passion to satiate appetites and maintain their autonomy and independence over themselves and destinies.

    Other types besides 8 and 1 that I personally see as being prone to rage, are 6, 4 (particularly the sp variant iirc), and 2s. Though I think essentially any types can be prone to rage if their environment is prodding them enough. I've seen it happen in different types, sadly.

    ^^^what Pyre said

    Also, what I've observed about 1s is that the moment a sort of proper/acceptable excuse to be angry (for the 1) comes up, any previously pent up anger will come out at once and to someone who doesn't understand, it may seem very disproportionate to the actual situation and unexpected.
    1s are always trying to justify their anger. They need to feel like whatever they do is right. so any emotion that seems to be "wrong" will be stifled.

    As a 1 fix I was especially out of touch with my anger when I was younger, but i have noticed that I let myself be angry more with no need to judge the feeling, and it feels freeing. Once I finally express it, it tends to disappear quickly and I just go back to being my mellow self. It's like how crying is good for when you're sad. (this observation maybe has a 4 bent to it)
