As promised... Here is my RWBY Enneagram chat !
Here are close-ups for the text (can be hard to read on tumblr)
If you're not an avid typologist you might ask... What IS Enneagram ?
And it is my duty to at least quickly introduce you to the concept & not just dump this chart on you :D
For an extensive reading of each type, you can check out this link
And for a quick overview :
Enneagram is a typology system (like MBTI or Socionics).
It can be a pretty helpful tool, because its focus lies on WHY you act the way you do : discussing the coping mechanism that built themselves out of your childhood struggles/traumas (big & small).
Enneagram is about your core fears, motivations, and how you relate to 3 main emotions (fear, anger & shame). There are 9 types, divided in 3 groups for each emotion & distinguishing 3 main ways to react to them.
Head types deal with Fear
Heart types deal with Shame
Gut types deal with Anger
And the three main ways Enneagram describes to deal with these emotions are : Embrace, Dissociate and Deny.
If I use the Gut types as an example :
Type 1 DISSOCIATE and detach themselves from their anger. They're aware that they're frustrated & angry, but resist this emotion because they want to rationalize it, and only share anger when they feel it is deserved. Their frustration eventually leaks out, and 1s become overly critical. By keeping their emotions and expressions on such a tight leash, 1s grow frustrated and appear as controlled & rigid individuals.
Type 9 DENY and avoid their anger. They numb it until they can barely recognize that they're angry at all. They dumb down or run away from pain & confrontation, in search for simple and painless solutions. Anger has never done anything for them, so they don't feel as though it is worth losing so much energy over. Since they tend to avoid conflict, 9s appear complacent and agreeable.
Type 8 EMBRACE and control their anger. They accept it as part of who they are, and don't care to tone it down for the sake of others. Infused with their anger, they become tough & assertive, chasing away vulnerability and those who would try to control them. Anger protects them, and they use it as a tool. Because they refuse to show weakness and see no reason to bend for others, 8s appear agressive and confrontational.
The same gymnastic happens for the Head or Heart types, but with their respective emotions. Technically, as the 3 groups each deal with different emotions; anyone trying to use enneagram to analyze their own behaviour should also be able to find 3 types (one in each group) they're able to relate to ! Together they make up your tritype :)
There is of course a lot more to enneagram that I woud love to delve into (such as the triads, which are another way to look at the types repartition and what aspects they have in common) but this is the gist of it ! If you're interested or have any questions, you can check out more links at the end (and the Amino community I'm in) oooor just ask me questions !! I'll always be happy to help or answer
Tests do exist like for any personnality theory BUT I happen to know & think they suck; because no one knows & understands you as well as yourself. You can check out answer in an online test, but you can't tell him WHY you chose that answer, and the why is what matters most in Enneagram. So... If that's your kind of thing, just slowly gets to know the theory and yourself. There is NEVER any rush.
Good evening to you all ! *bows*

What to do when things go wrong (Tm)
Hello everyone, I'm back on my bullshit
Let's all be grateful that Weiss & Jaune aren't too busy panicking or blaming themselves to make a plan.
Although for Jaune, V9 might prove me wrong real quick
Oscar, Clover and Marrow are the sweet trinity of "we don't have to fight"
Emerald, Mercury and Ozpin left all emotions behind years ago :)
1/4 of the cast will apologize for their existence if you so much as spill your orange juice apparently
Some bitches love to laugh & joke (or rag someone) in the face of danger; Yang & Watts are bitches
