> Riso seems to focus on lack of energy and feeling that ' reality is to heavy to bear so that you become a coach potato before the tv' - archetype which depressive people often have to describe Serious Style with E9 types?
Riso equates E 9 with the Jungian ISXJ ( X=F,T )I t works very well with the depressive part of 9W1. ISTJ & ISFJ are seen as the MBTI matchups ( Naranjo picks ISTJ & ESFJ.... )
The problem being that Riso's 1W9 profile captures OTHER aspects of the Serious Style- the cultured, scholarily recluse. Plus my mother, and I have a brother who are the sunny, happy 9W1 ( Serious-Self Sacrificing-Conscientious )
So I would say, from personal experience, that the depressive 9W1 is only 1 subtype. You can find a happy variant, and find a much different Conscientious-Serious-?, 9W1.... Personally, 9W1 seems a better match for the Serious style, but with the Conscientious Style, as the strongest of the 3 main styles, look at the difference. Cory equates Serious=1w9.... Rich Rich
