    Can your type change?

    In childhood I was conflict avoidant... now I seemly seek conflicts for fun, and seemly that is a major factor in enneagram...

    I wonder if the types can chance...

    No you are born with your eneagram, but during your lifetime you will move around in the health levels.

    Obviously they can.
    People change.
    So types change too.


    It seems that you have no knowledge of the enneagram types whatsoever.

    So you just insulted a person who is new for asking a question that wasn't even dumb and then topped it off with something that wasn't even factually correct? Awesome job!

    Everyone emerges from childhood with one of the nine types dominating their personality, with inborn temperament and other pre-natal factors being the main determinants of our type. This is one area where most all of the major Enneagram authors agree—we are born with a dominant type. Subsequently, this inborn orientation largely determines the ways in which we learn to adapt to our early childhood environment. It also seems to lead to certain unconscious orientations toward our parental figures, but why this is so, we still do not know. In any case, by the time children are four or five years old, their consciousness has developed sufficiently to have a separate sense of self. Although their identity is still very fluid, at this age children begin to establish themselves and find ways of fitting into the world on their own.

    If you disagree with the statement written by one of the oldest Enneagram experts then by all means do so, but please do so in a constructive way.

    I encourage you to read over the whole link though as it will explain the bare bones of enneagram

    That's the same with me only in reverse. What do you think your enneagram type is?

    If it were possible it would take a traumatizing experience to realize your old ways of looking at the world are no longer of use, but what really matters is something completely different. This still seems unlikely because it seems you would still just become an unhealthy version of yourself, and that the perspective has just been tweaked. I believe even past that you are limited in possibilities due to genetic setup of an individual.

    A nature over nurture follower will tell you that you have no choice in the matter of what's important in this world, and that you're going to look at it a certain way regardless but I disagree. Science is pretty questionable on testing neurotransmitters and what they really mean.
