During an interesting conversation with Promethea, the following point came up. What is the relationship between the unconscious and oneís tritype and wings?
We talked about it, and I agree that my tritype is 6w5 4w3 9w8. In my head, I am very conscious of my 6 and 5 tendencies and am becoming more aware of my ability to play the 7 if I have a sufficient reason. But when I get to my heart, things get weird. Consciously, I am aware of my 2 and 3 tendencies, but the 4 seems to be an unconscious motivation that I donít readily acknowledge. It just seems to creep in as almost a neurotic tendency. The same is true of my gut type. Consciously, I look for balance (9) and self-cultivation (1), but unconsciously, I love to get my own way.
What are your thoughts on the nature of the unconscious in the context of the Enneagram? Do you notice your tritype is shaped by unconscious impulses? Could I just say that my personality is shaped in such a way as to either avoid or indulge neuroses?
