The Super Mega Awesome Rapier and Smallsword Timeline!
What’s up, fellow nerds. Do you love long, stabby swords? Do you like swashbuckling adventure stories? Ever wondered what your favorite book and movie characters’ swords are actually supposed to look like? Do you do Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA) and have you ever self-consciously wondered if your practice weapon is really from the same time period as the style you’re studying (it is? Are you sure about that?)? Ever wanted to get a sword to train with that your favorite character plausibly could have wielded?
Well look no further! After way too many nights of copiously poring over descriptions in my favorite novels, Wikipedia pages, and the great AVB Norman’s The Rapier and the Smallsword, I have created a timeline of all 113 rapier and smallsword hilt types in Norman’s typology and plotted them on a timeline of the years 1470-1820. Also included are a timeline of the major Western wars in which these weapons would have been used on the battlefield, and a timeline of as many known historical fencing masters as I know of who taught the use of the rapier and smallsword, including their known years active if that information was available.
The centerpiece of this project, however, are the character timelines. Based on available evidence from their stories (either in the novels or movies themselves or gleaned from Wikipedia), I was able to create date ranges for the swords different characters would have used. By trimming copies of the Master Reference sheet, I could isolate the viable options for the swords of different characters, as well as contemporary historical sources that could be used as the basis for their fencing styles.
Characters analyzed include:
Inigo Montoya and Wesley from The Princess Bride
Athos, Porthos, Aramis and D’Artagnan from The Three Musketeers and Twenty Years After.
Cyrano de Bergerac
Señor Zorro from the original Zorro story, The Curse of Capistrano
Rapiers from the time of William Shakespeare
And so much more!
I also created pages for major HEMA disciplines, such as Italian rapier (Fabris, Giganti, Capoferro, and Alfieri), Destreza, and Bolognese sidesword, including individual authors for Destreza (my personal fencing style). Each hilt, if applicable, also has a list of modern HEMA training swords that conform to that type, so that you can see what your current training weapon is good for or find a training weapon to suit your discipline, aesthetic, or fantasy!
Feel free to peruse my work, or download your own copy to edit.
Pictures are not included, but can be found online with a quick google search. Or you can search “a.v.b. Norman rapier typology” in the tags and find reference images of most of these weapons that I’ve previously reblogged.
Also, @we-are-swashbuckler @historicalfightingguide @prideknights @malaguttifederico @we-are-knight I’m tagging y’all because I think y’all might enjoy this.

Misconceptions About Type 9
This ended up being relatively well received elsewhere, so I figured this would be the first post in my pseudo-blog revival.
The way 9 has been understood throughout the varying iterations of the enneagram has heavily developed as we’ve come into into the modern enneagram system (which I assure you is not just Riso Hudson or Enneagram institute). Naranjo made his assessments, enneagram institute made theirs, and while they each got part of the picture the whole is missing in both.  Here I’ll address common misunderstandings about type 9, why they are made, and what aspects of the theory are being misinterpreted.  As a warning I'm not shitting on 9 or Naranjo. Some of my examples are fairly negative because those are just what I happened to think of as an example and of course some of them kind of point out that the one of many enneagram books that Naranjo wrote that people focus on exclusively has a very limited description of type 9.
1) 9 is an exclusively oriented on the real and tangible and avoids the inner world: Many tend to misinterpret 9 as a thoughtless and exclusively sensory sort of type for some reason while failing to acknowledge the subjectivity that is someone's sense of comfort in addition to confusing what the inner world truly is and contains. Many would consider chronic daydreaming or story making, for example, a trait of someone who has a deep inner world because it is primarily inwardly focused. This, however, actually pairs very well with the 9 tendency towards narcotization. Living in a fantasy world certainly narcoticizes self in the same way that indulging in physical comforts might for those so inclined, as it separates a person from the more unpleasant or draining aspects of reality as well as the more unpleasant aspects of the inner/true reality such as the thoughts you might be left with if not actively abstracting or concocting story-lines or scenarios to capture attention instead. Habitual study and consuming the self with constant analytics, abstractions, or generating a mind numbing activity level with work or tasks is also a form of narcotization in this sense because it is used as an escape tactic (rather than as a distancing/control seeking strategy like in type 5, a structure seeking activity as seen in 6, etc).  
Hence, by some merits 9s can have a vivid inner world and often you can have very intellectual, intuitive, and thoughtful 9s.  Mental sloth specifically pertains to avoiding the mentally taxing or unpleasant aspects of reality or self. So yes, 9s can very much be "intuitive types" by mbti and jungian standards because narcotization can be an abstraction process. And yes, 9s can be Fi doms, especially when the emotional and ethical focus of Fi lands on focusing on the more palatable sides of self (be they flaws used to disconnect from more powerful and disturbing flaws of the self or positive self traits over shame bringing traits), a sense of morality that generates pleasure or more peace than or for others, etc etc. Yes, I am oversimplifying. Yes, this also applies to sp and so 9.
2) 9s are deeply connected to sensation and the body: Many authors quote 9, being the center of the enneagram, to have the propensity to be the most grounded and bodily of the gut types. In the same sense, many will quote them with one of the highest propensities for disconnection. Consider 6 and 3, who have similar problems with their triad. 3 is incredibly connected to shame and will often reconstruct self to be valuable to whatever goals they are pursuing, yet they will bolster their self image and seek affirmation for their greatness. 6 is deeply connected to thought and anxiety with a near constant level of mental chattering, yet they as a ping ponging type will push back and assert certainty and strong reactions in the counterphobic sense when they know that action is necessary. 9 is no different, at times being overly rooted in the body and sensations but even over connecting to spirituality or self numbing, 
 3) 9 is entirely conflict averse, anyone who shows violence or aggression is not a 9.  Anger is entirely repressed: 9 is discomfort averse, not conflict averse. The two often go hand in hand, however, because actually generating conflict is an energy draw/annoying and reveals that indeed a 9 can be bothered. But sometimes, reducing discomfort and avoiding problems like a 9 might is not traditionally conflictless. Having a hissy fit because someone is disrupting the tone of a group conversation and passive aggressively pushing them to stop that is conflicting. Getting even physically aggressive when someone challenges your way of life or the comfort that you and those dear to you have because changing that way of life would ruin your sense of comfort and the habitual patterns you've built and attached to in your life is incredibly aggressive and conflicting. Refusing to share opinions irl and seeming sweet and simple but actively being aggressively opinionated, contradictory, and vocal online is also a style of aggression that avoids taking responsibility. All of these, however, are also very aligned with the core traits of 9 which is sloth and comfort/simplicity seeking and are only small examples of 9 style aggression.  
In a similar light, 9s can be very very aware of their anger despite 9 at it’s core seeking to be and seem impermeable and unaffected by most things (this does not necessarily mean it is uncommon of 9s to not be aware of their anger however).  Expression and an outwards reveal of that anger or that they are, in fact bothered, is where the difficulty truly lies.  There are many 9s who feel internally filled with turmoil and wrath and may even think that this is something that they radiate, however the gut influence of 9 however often dulls this expression without them knowing this is the case.
4) 9, like the other positive outlook types, are entirely averse to morose and dark subject matter: Again, there is a lack of understanding on the subjectivity of comfort (and also a lack of understanding of what positive outlook means; as a hint, it is not optimism by necessity).  People who grew up in chaos will seek chaos because it’s comfortable, people who grew up in traditionally comforting environments will seek comfort because it is comfortable.  What is challenging or disturbing to some, in the same sense, is really not something that remotely moves others.  Dark and morose subject matter frankly does not make a lot of people uncomfortable.  Consider Junji Ito, a person near constantly quoted to be a 9 core and how “disturbing” people find his art to be as a mere example of this.  It is not uncommon for 9 to indulge very heavily into dark and upsetting subject matter even as a means to avoid or distract from their own turmoil or if it is something that they find to be engaging or has an engaging effect on them.

The characteristic Mental Activity of the Enneagram Types
I made this as a reply somewhere but then I realized it should prolly be its own post. This is partially based on what Chapters of "The Dynamic enneagram" Tom Cordon has made available as e books but I could sort of puzzle it together for the other types based on all other subjective experience reports I've witnessed.
Since outer traits are influenced by culture & circumstances & subject to the imprecisions of objective self assessment & the understanding & reliability of descriptions, I'd say the one way to know for sure is the inner mental activity; this you could know even if you were a brain in a vat, and everything else follows from this anyway.
1: Constantly comparing what they encounter with an inner image of what it should/ could be. often a static image
My observation is that mbti Si users tend to say they "always notice when something is out of place" whereas Ni users say they "immediately see how things could be improved"
Also have this thing of resisting "bad" impulses by turning them into their opposite
2: Hyper people-focussed. Experience it as 'sending' themselves over to the other person, thinking of them intensely etc. & thus picking up what that other person feels. Touchy feely, lots of eye contact.
(they do this by copying the other person's body language, talking speed etc., though they might not consciously notice this - but this presumably does help to run a “simulation” of the other person’s state)
3: Typical activity is either a) paying close attention to what people seem to want, expect , how theyre reacting to you etc., always sensing this & being able to match it if desired b) focussing on an image and the acting that way. Being like your favorite celebrity, someone you admire or just some ideal you think is worthwhile.
4: Intuitive association chains - one thought sparks another, which might spark a memory, a feeling, a symbol etc. can dwell a lot on the past, inner fantasies or be impacted by things in the environment, all of which tends to build up emotional charge. ‘Synesthetic’/ ‘kaleodoscopic’, cross-context quality. Tend to immediately notice the differences between themselves and others when entering a new situation.
5: Intellectualized/ abstract view of everything. Constant mental sorting of things into categories, contrasting distinctions, looking for underlying principles, building mental models of stuff... in any case, forming conclusions/observations about what is happening as it happens.
Very little intuitive "people sense" or ability to learn it by copying.
6: A lot of replayed mental worst case scenarios. Can be visual (in that case the threat is often big & towering) but in any case it's intense kind of like it's already true/ already happening: This will go wrong, that will go wrong and then because of it that will happen... etc.
Some are just very cautious ppl, others can have a tendency to throw themselves into high-pressure situations because the worried thoughts stop to a degree if you snap into crisis mode.
Are also good at picking up allegiances, hidden intentions, inconsistencies etc.
7: Mental activity filled with a) anticipation (picturing good scenarios that might happen, fun things you might do, exciting possibilities etc.) - opposite of 6 kind of, the racing thoughts are good stuff, though it can get frantic/manic, and 7w6 and 6w7 would have a mix. b) reframing - when something bad happens, you'd reflexibly try to see/ find the good in it or at least be ok with it
8: Sort of feel their own existence by feeling their limits - always looking to make an impact, cause a reaction, have a tangible effect. Sort of always feels they need to amp up the vitality/energy/ actively make things happen. Does not expect to get things easily from others, (or at least wants to make sure to get them) so they'd be looking to have a 'strategy' or 'leverage' so they do not get screwed over.
9: No such dominant pattern, rather completely open to/ taken in by outside impressions, absorbed in what your conversation partner is saying, what youre currently experiencing or even what you're imagining etc. hence poor shielding towards & high sensitivity to negativity & conflict . Since one's own responses aren't being tracked they take a moment to access. - thinking is a lot more kinesthetic & fuzzy than precise and verbal. Strongly feel physical comfort or lack thereof, might have a big imagination as well.
You'll know you hit the right one when you think "wait, other people don't do this?"

Visual Typing - MBTI Head Shapes
After collecting more evidence over the past two years here is an updated chart of the different head/face shapes for the MBTI types.
Tumblr media
the general markers:
1. Introverts have thin faces, extroverts have wide faces (the only exception being xSTJs, more on that later), scientific studies about this:
- https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-020-65358-6
- https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0191886916309096
2. xxTPs have very rectangular faces with pronounced square chins. ExTPs in particular are prone to bulldog-like underbites, giving a stereotypically masculine appearance
3. xxFJs have smaller underveloped jaws with small chins, giving a triangular/ heart-shape, feminine appearance
just a hypothesis but 2. and 3. are probably related to testosterone-influence during embryonic development hence the correlation for both appearance and gendered character traits (feeling vs thinking, emotion vs ratio)
4. *for some reason if someone has this specific long jaw misalignment it -has- to be a male ISFJs (photo example before and after lefort 1 jaw surgery). (like, not -all- male ISFJs have it, but if someone has it you can bet it’s an ISFJ). haven’t seen this in INFJs or in female ISFJs yet
Tumblr media
5. Te/Fi-users have average jaw sizes and therefore go more into the circle/oval direction. xSTJs in particular often have “egg-shape” heads. xNTJs look somehow more triangular than their Si/Ne-counterparts but still more egg-ish than xxFJs.
behold, an xSTJ:
Tumblr media
6. for why ISTJ and ESTJ are “switched” in head width and they are the only MBTI pair that is an exception from the I/E-width-rule I only have this half-baked explanation that it’s not about introversion/extroversion in a social sense but more in a “openness to sensations” sense that ESTJs with their inf Fi are more stubborn and actually more withdrawn than ISTJs(??)
7. ENTJs have the most pronounced foreheads you’ve ever seen
8. fat can disguise the head shape, but not always. e.g. see those two examples of ExFJs before and after weightloss. the chin is still sharp and triangular even when overweight:
Tumblr media Tumblr media
meanwhile the rectangle shape of this ISTP only becomes visible with lower body fat:
Tumblr media
9. overdeveloped masseter muscles can distract from the chin shape. e.g. take this picture of young INFP Brad Pitt. one could easily fall into the trap thinking he has an IxTP head shape when in reality his chin has a normal Te-user size and it’s just his masseter muscles distracting from the shape. the curved indentations between chin and muscle are a good clue. (compare it to pictures of him being older with less pronounced masseter muscles, then his real chin shape is more obvious)
Tumblr media
comparing with ISTP Sigourney Weaver, her rectangle head shape is visible during all ages regardless of muscle mass
Tumblr media
as a novice those differences can be hard to track. train your eye by observing photos of people during different age stages, try to imagine the face without any soft tissue and bone only.

Enneagram + The Big Five Traits
The Big Five traits are Extraversion, Neuroticism, Conscientiousness, Agreeableness, and Openness.
Type 1
Extraversion: Varies. Higher if 1w2, lower if 1w9.
Neuroticism: Moderate to high. Self-control may lead to them not appearing outwardly "neurotic". May score high on the Anger facet.
Conscientiousness: Highest of the enneagram types.
Agreeableness: Varies. May want to do the right thing, but may seem disagreeable when their idea of "right" clashes with that of others.
Openness: Low.
Type 2
Extraversion: High.
Neuroticism: Varies.
Conscientiousness: Varies, but typically moderate.
Agreeableness: High.
Openness: Low.
Type 3
Extraversion: Typically high but can be low based on the individual.
Neuroticism: Varies. May not appear outwardly "neurotic" if that is not the image they want to present.
Conscientiousness: Typically moderate to high.
Agreeableness: Higher if 3w2, lower if 3w4.
Openness: Low.
Type 4
Extraversion: Low.
Neuroticism: High.
Conscientiousness: Typically low. May not want to comply with the demands of others, but may follow self-imposed rules.
Agreeableness: Low to moderate.
Openness: High.
Type 5
Extraversion: Low.
Neuroticism: Low.
Conscientiousness: Typically low. May not want to comply with the demands of others, but may follow self-imposed rules.
Agreeableness: Low.
Openness: High particularly in the Intellect facet, but can be low as Openness focuses on having a variety of interests, while 5s focus intensely on a select few things over a variety.
Type 6
Extraversion: Varies, but typically introverted.
Neuroticism: High.
Conscientiousness: High.
Agreeableness: Varies. Lower if counterphobic.
Openness: Typically low.
Type 7
Extraversion: Highest of the enneagram types.
Neuroticism: Low, or if high, at least may try to avoid those negative emotions.
Conscientiousness: Lowest of the enneagram types.
Agreeableness: Varies.
Openness: High.
Type 8
Extraversion: High. Higher if 8w7, lower if 8w9.
Neuroticism: Low. May place high on the Anger facet, but low on other more "vulnerable" feelings such as Anxiety, Self-Consciousness, or Vulnerability.
Conscientiousness: Varies.
Agreeableness: Low.
Openness: Typically low, particularly on Imagination, Artistic Interests, and Emotionality. Intellect may be moderate to high. May be high on Adventurousness and Liberalism.
Type 9
Extraversion: Low.
Neuroticism: Low, or if high, may not appear outwardly as such.
Conscientiousness: Low.
Agreeableness: High. May be lower if 9w8 or SO blind.
Openness: Varies.
Remember that this is an estimation based off the observations I've made of type descriptions, which describe average health. An individual may score differently from what I've written here, and one's trifix may have an influence on it. For example, someone who is a core 1, which typically has very high conscientiousness, may get a lower score than average on conscientiousness if they have a 7 fix.
- Reminder that this is not based off how people of each type self-report (misinformation, lack of self-awareness, and changing oneself to fit type descriptions in the typology community is rampant, therefore self-report means not a lot). This is based off average descriptions from various sources of each type.

I've never made this kind of collages before, I get dizzy just by thinking about the possibilities, but this time I thought that maybe I could try limiting the scope to make it a little easier in that sense. So the idea ended up being a set of 9 pictures for each type that only used images that I already had in favorites, so it became less of an exhausting indefinite search and more of a game. The available collection included several thousands of pictures, but the collecting hadn't been made with typology in mind. So the result is, of course, quite peculiar (and probably a bit too personal). The boards are mostly about depicting a certain specific "vibe", perhaps a few traits but not many variants, and in general they follow the names of the types (from MBTI List 09). I could go on making alternative versions that would perhaps be more varied, but at this point I'm just too tired, so, yeah, this is it. I hope you like them :)
(I'm not going to include credits because there are 144 different images here. In case anyone wants to know the origin of a particular one, most of them come from my Flickr favorites, so you can take a look there first).

Basic Cognitive Functions Guide
note: hi folks - i'm dee, and i'm an mbti enthusiast (addict?? :))). i usually make little guides and notes on mbti because it helps me visualize and process information + allows me to share my insights with others. i thought it'd be good to finally post my thoughts online too, so here we go! my first guide :D
Two Attitudes
Extroverted (E): Functions oriented towards the real world—views things as is without personal alignment and filtering. "Breadth."
Introverted (I): Functions oriented towards the subject's world—views things through personal alignment and filtering. "Depth."
Two Function Categories
Judging Function (Jx): Reason—a cause, explanation, or justification for an action or event—used to judge and decide.
Extraverted Judging (Je): Reasoning based on external effects. Looks at what should be.
Introverted Judging (Ji): Reasoning based on internal alignment. Looks at personalized principles.
Perceiving Function (Px): Processes used in gathering or filtering information.
Extraverted Perceiving (Pe): Perceiving based on external exploration. Unfiltered gathering of information.
Introverted Perceiving (Pi): Perceiving based on internal narrowing down. Filtering information. 
Four Function Aspects
*Inter/personal ("emotional"): Human-based matters. *Impersonal ("logical"): Nonhuman-based matters.
Feeling Functions (Fx): Judgment metrics oriented towards people and inter/personal matters. Emotional reasoning.
Thinking Functions (Tx): Judgment metrics oriented towards things and impersonal matters. Logical reasoning.
Intuition Functions (Nx): Perceiving processes oriented towards intangible information. Abstract perception.
Sensing Functions (Sx): Perceiving processes oriented towards tangible information. Concrete perception.
Eight Cognitive Functions
*Judging Functions:
Extraverted Feeling (Fe): Reasoning based on external inter/personal effects—emotional consequences. "What should be valued."
Extraverted Thinking (Te): Reasoning based on external impersonal effects—logical consequences. "What should work."
Introverted Feeling (Fi): Reasoning based on internal inter/personal alignment—emotional particularities. "What feels right to me."
Introverted Thinking (Ti): Reasoning based on internal impersonal alignment—logical particularities. "What makes sense to me."
*Perceiving Functions
Extraverted Sensing (Se): Perceiving based on external concrete exploration—unfiltered gathering of tangible information. "What is."
Extraverted Intuition (Ne): Perceiving based on external abstract exploration—unfiltered gathering of intangible information. "What if."
Introverted Sensing (Si): Perceiving based on internal concrete narrowing down—filtering tangible information. "What has been."
Introverted Intuition (Ni): Perceiving based on internal abstract narrowing down—filtering intangible information. "What will be."
based on my understanding of Psychological Types by Carl Jung

I was wondering if you've seen mental health or mental disorders cause people to mistype their personalities?
Yes, often. The most common ones:
Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) -> High Ne (xNxP)
Paranoid Personality Disorder (PPD) -> High Ni (xNxJ)
Depression (the apathetic to consequences and unfiltered anger version of depression, not the whiny sadness version) -> High Te (xxTJ)
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) -> High Ti (xxTP)
Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) -> High Se (xSxP)
Anxiety -> High Si (xSxJ)
Bipolar Disorder -> High Fe (xxFJ)
Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) -> High Fi (xxFP)
If your 'personality traits' impair your ability to function as a human being, then they're no longer traits-- they're disorders. Seek professional help.

Misconceptions About Type 1
Type 1 is likely one of the more uncommon types within the enneagram system.  We often joke of the overtypings of 5s and 4s and proceed to forget that type 1 is also strongly overtyped.  The fact is that few if any enneagram authors were of the type 1 personality type, therefore much of what is written about the type is lacking this first person experience associated with the type.  This becomes very obvious in descriptions of 1 which almost entirely ignore 1s connection to the body triad and, at times, portray the type as if it were of the head triad.  When learning the enneagram, it becomes especially important to understand this difficulty and begin to reconceptualize our understanding of type 1 in particular.
1) Type one is "insert head type description here": Many descriptions portray 1 almost as though it were a head type rather than a gut type, which leads to a lot of 6s and probably even 5s mistyping as such. While 1s can be cautious, worrisome, cerebral and even theoretical/thoughtful, the core of the gut center revolves around instinct and body orientation.  Anger and frustration for the 1 is often felt intensely and in the body sense.  One of the best self descriptions I’ve heard from a 1 about this experience was the comparison of the self to a tuning fork, with “wrong” being identified as a dissonance between the self and reality.  While 1s sense of ideality as well as their sense of right/correct or wrong/incorrect can be intensely logical, have solid reasoning, and be thought through in great detail, the 1s sense of ideality does not stem from the mind, but from the body and that either intuitive or sensational sense of ideality and non-ideality.  This type is most often incredibly decisive and trusting of it's sense of directionality unlike the head types who will bolster their sense of judgement through impulse, intense research, external affirmation, or other means because the core of type 1 is not a distrust of internal guidance. The type literally only has possibility for positive outlook wings as well as a strong line to 7, a positive outlook type.  This manifests as this incredible sense of self trust in their own ideas and ability to assert judgement and provides a driving force for action and movement since, despite cynisism or pessimism, there is often assumption that ideality is something that can be reached for or even obtained.  This is the strongest distinguishing factor between 1 and other types consistently mistyped as 1. 
It should be clarified further that “body sense” does not imply that all 1s need to be “sensing” types in the mbti sense or are remotely connected to their body in the physical or traditional sense.  Ideality can be abstracted in the intuitive sense, body sensations can be entirely filtered through an abstract lens in the sense that a 1 may not be able to describe it as it exists physically, etc.  The distinction must be made that the gut triad in general comes with this arrogant “I just know” sort of mentality that distinguishes it from the heart and head triads.
2) Type one represses anger and is often inclined to come across as composed: It is not uncommon for 1s style of anger to be misinterpreted as repressed, especially considering how uncommon this type actually is.  Textually, it can be difficult to find a word that is distinctly fitting for their style of anger. While 1 often prioritizes objective and clear thought, this types vice is still wrath. Perhaps this anger and rage may be internally justified as something that the 1 does not consider rage (ie. nitpicking, organizing, criticism, an explanation etc) or the 1 may even truly believe they are as cool headed and emotionally detached as many suspect themselves to be, however the 1's wrath is externally oriented and palpable. Wrath exclusively directed at the self, but not caught by others or a type that only manifests as being internally frustrated or critical of others alongside little to no external expression is a 9 thing. Repressing anger to maintain a clearheaded, objective stance is also more of a 9, 6, or even 3 trait rather than a trait that is primarily 1. 1 type anger is controlled, directional, and centered (rather than diffused and internally brewed as in the 9 or ranged, comfortably expressed, and impact focused as in the 8). This even applies to 1w9, who's sense of wrath may be oriented towards reducing discomfort or takes on the justification as being peace/balance seeking but is not as quiet or remotely hidden as some often expect it to be.
 3) Type 1 is rigid and Rule Abiding: They are, but to their own sense of structure, not necessarily external structures. 1 has a strong vision of how the world should be and what is lacking. The archetype of the perfect student who enforces the rules or the person dedicated to a strong moral system or "the goody two shoes" is 90% of the time a 3 or 6 at their core because both of these stances are strongly tied to pre-established systems and appeal to the attachment orientation. 1 at it's core is frustration and dissatisfaction. 1 isn't necessarily breaking rules and can have moral stances that connect to culture and common standards, but there is a strong connection to the body and impulse sense of anger and frustration rather than the more traditional focus on established systems and rules.  1 is far more often the generator of rules and standards rather than the follower of them.
4) The Core Fear of 1 is Being a Bad Person: While this is not necessarily incorrect, the way this is framed does not provide the necessary context that, once again, this is not really expectation based and that “bad” is not necessarily relating to morality.  You can have traditionally “evil” 1s who embrace the concept of being absolutely awful or, more commonly, are unaware of the effects of their behavior on others or hypocrisy because, once again, all of this self directed and critical behavior is a felt sense.  1 moves in the direction of it’s compass, that compass does not have to be remotely moral in the traditional sense.
