That is some interesting input..all this ego-talk, though, reminds me of Ayn Rand :P

People who are enticed in their type..in other words people who *want* to be solely that type, acting the way their type dictates would have a narrow perspective on life because they are trying to conform to one set personality, what TV producers often do to simplify the show. However, when you said that I was actually thinking something else - people who are entralled not necessarily with trying to be who Enneagram tells them they are, but, rather, that they have a fixation with discovering who they are i.e. not necessarily conforming but discovering. I think I may have somewhat fallen into that trap - trying to discover too much about myself by stupid tests. Ultimately, these are too defined & categorized. It's basically just creating archetypes, like Joseph Campbell attempted. There's probably some truth in them (I, after all, like a 5 am sometimes withdrawn and shy) and I'm also creative or 'inventive' but that's only one aspect of my personality.

Anyways I gotta go but thanks again for everyone's response,
Liv
