I agree with this assessment.

I am a 5W4 who sometimes test as 9W1 because I tend to back away from conflict. I think though that the 9 backs away from conflict because he is afraid of conflict, but the 5 backs away from conflict only if he thinks it is the logical thing to do - like if he does not know enough about the situation, or he has calculated it to be a futile exercise, or if the conflict involves emotions as it often does. Indeed I remember being too stubborn or too argumentative in times of conflict when I thought I was correct which is a 5ish trait - at least as long as there is no emotions involved otherwise I'd just clam up and withdraw because I don't like to show what I am feeling.
