I can't say that I have done anything implusively. I do things from time to time that might seem impulsive but I always think things out first. I say I'm the most like a 5 because I do think everything out but how I then choose to act is often not even close to how a 5 typically acts. But how I act does seem to fit well into the MBTI-types. . .you make it sound like the enneagram it is the bible(All the books and stuff tends to do that to pplz).
