> I'm pretty certain that I'm a 5 with both wings. But, I read the description of a 9w1 (doesn't like conflict, and can sleep their life away) and I saw similarities. I don't like conflict, but I do get angry, mainly because I feel that others are impenetrable and unreachable during argument. Also, when I'm bored, I usually just sleep the boredom off if I can't find anything else to do. Are there a lot of 5's out there who feel that they could be 9's also? Is this a common thing? someone let me know
You can't have both wings; everyone leans more toward one or the other adjacent number. You can't lean equally toward both, unless I guess you were exactly centered in your type, which might be possible but would certainly be difficult to verify! Everyone does possess qualities from both wings, but one wing is stronger.
I have met 9's (and other types) who thought they were 5's. I haven't known many 5's, but I think if any 5 read any enneagram book all the way through they'd have no doubt that they were a 5.
