> 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

>>>>>>5/4s have a problem with boredom and with being lazy and sometimes using sleep as an escape.

>>>>>>>I am a 4 but had problems distinguishing whether I was a 4 or a 9 for awhile. So I tried 9 on and came online as a 9/1! What I found was that I am not like a 9 in that I am very definite and specific in my tastes, my plans, my feelings. So I was the "bohemian" or "aristocrat", not the "dreamer" as I was experimenting with.

I think that if you are a 5 you will find that you are pretty certain in your thoughts or at least in the methodology of your thoughts, and may find that 9s are more like, "yeah, whatever, to each his own," which would make a 5 angry (irritated at least) because a 5 would want to point out an analysis of the facts and work hard to get to the truth -- 9s may be searching for their own "truth" (path in life) but they don't seem to care about analyzing others and then actually debating it out. 5s LOVE to debate point-by-point, with logic and analysis. Well that's one difference I see between 5s and 9s -- hope it helps.
