[align=justify]Daily thread #19


We mentioned this in the MBTI personality thread, but I figure it'll get buried, and I think this topic is worth its own thread. We think MBTI is overrated and you can easily get a different result each time, so it's not the best measure of personality. What we personally prefer are the Enneagram personalities. There are 9 types instead of 16, so there's a lot less room to get a different result each time, and the different results are more unique from each other, with some similar groupings. It also explains how each personality might behave if it's positive, neutral, or negative.


The nine personality types are



One - The Reformer: "Ones are conscientious and ethical, with a strong sense of right and wrong. They are teachers, crusaders, and advocates for change: always striving to improve things, but afraid of making a mistake. Well-organized, orderly, and fastidious, they try to maintain high standards, but can slip into being critical and perfectionistic. They typically have problems with resentment and impatience. At their Best: wise, discerning, realistic, and noble. Can be morally heroic."


Two - The Helper: "Twos are empathetic, sincere, and warm-hearted. They are friendly, generous, and self-sacrificing, but can also be sentimental, flattering, and people-pleasing. They are well-meaning and driven to be close to others, but can slip into doing things for others in order to be needed. They typically have problems with possessiveness and with acknowledging their own needs. At their Best: unselfish and altruistic, they have unconditional love for others."


Three - The Achiever: "Threes are self-assured, attractive, and charming. Ambitious, competent, and energetic, they can also be status-conscious and highly driven for advancement. They are diplomatic and poised, but can also be overly concerned with their image and what others think of them. They typically have problems with workaholism and competitiveness. At their Best: self-accepting, authentic, everything they seem to be—role models who inspire others."


Four - The Individualist: "Fours are self-aware, sensitive, and reserved. They are emotionally honest, creative, and personal, but can also be moody and self-conscious. Withholding themselves from others due to feeling vulnerable and defective, they can also feel disdainful and exempt from ordinary ways of living. They typically have problems with melancholy, self-indulgence, and self-pity. At their Best: inspired and highly creative, they are able to renew themselves and transform their experiences."


Five - The Investigator: "Fives are alert, insightful, and curious. They are able to concentrate and focus on developing complex ideas and skills. Independent, innovative, and inventive, they can also become preoccupied with their thoughts and imaginary constructs. They become detached, yet high-strung and intense. They typically have problems with eccentricity, nihilism, and isolation. At their Best: visionary pioneers, often ahead of their time, and able to see the world in an entirely new way."


Six - The Loyalist: "The committed, security-oriented type. Sixes are reliable, hard-working, responsible, and trustworthy. Excellent "troubleshooters," they foresee problems and foster cooperation, but can also become defensive, evasive, and anxious—running on stress while complaining about it. They can be cautious and indecisive, but also reactive, defiant and rebellious. They typically have problems with self-doubt and suspicion. At their Best: internally stable and self-reliant, courageously championing themselves and others."


Seven - The Enthusiast: "Sevens are extroverted, optimistic, versatile, and spontaneous. Playful, high-spirited, and practical, they can also misapply their many talents, becoming over-extended, scattered, and undisciplined. They constantly seek new and exciting experiences, but can become distracted and exhausted by staying on the go. They typically have problems with impatience and impulsiveness. At their Best: they focus their talents on worthwhile goals, becoming appreciative, joyous, and satisfied."


Eight - The Challenger: "Eights are self-confident, strong, and assertive. Protective, resourceful, straight-talking, and decisive, but can also be ego-centric and domineering. Eights feel they must control their environment, especially people, sometimes becoming confrontational and intimidating. Eights typically have problems with their tempers and with allowing themselves to be vulnerable. At their Best: self- mastering, they use their strength to improve others' lives, becoming heroic, magnanimous, and inspiring."


Nine - The Peacemaker: "Nines are accepting, trusting, and stable. They are usually creative, optimistic, and supportive, but can also be too willing to go along with others to keep the peace. They want everything to go smoothly and be without conflict, but they can also tend to be complacent, simplifying problems and minimizing anything upsetting. They typically have problems with inertia and stubbornness. At their Best: indomitable and all-embracing, they are able to bring people together and heal conflicts."




In-depth descriptions of each of these types can be found here. If you'd like, read them and report which type you think each of your systemmates are and why. Maybe it'll give some insight on your system, or at least be fun and neat to think about!


Also, each type will have a slant to either adjacent type, so for example a dominant type One might have type Two as their secondary type, making them a 1w2, and having a type 9 as their secondary type would be a 1w9. Also something to look into aside from just the 9 categories if interested.


(All daily threads can be found here.)


Our system's types are:

Apollo: 1w2 (Reformer, Advocate)

Piano: 5w6 (Investigator, Problem Solver)

Luxio: 9w8 (Peacemaker, Referee) (He used to be a type Eight before his long stasis)

Me: 7w6 (Enthusiast, Entertainer)

Radio: 4w5 (Individualist, Bohemian)

Reading the information given I think our Enneagram Personalities are:


Me: 6w4 (Loyalist, Individualist)

Scotch: 7w9 (Enthusiast, Peacemaker)

Luna: 5w7 (Investigator, Enthusiast)

Osiris: 8w1 (Challenger, Reformer)

Not too active and the others don't talk very much to strangers.

[align=justify]I'm afraid you did the wings wrong. The wings can only be one of the two adjacent personalities. A Six can only be a 6w5 or a 6w7, not a 6w4. So, just the ones directly beside the dominant type.


I made a little chart[/align]



This stuff can be a little confusing but it's easy to get the hang of once you know it :]

Wha.. what is that chart? . . . Oh, you included their dumb arrow system, that's totally unnecessary here.. also took me a bit to find where you got those names for the in betweens


Me: Just Enthusiast, I guess? the adjacent-only system is totally arbitrary, I'd also call myself a Helper secondarily

Tewi: Loyalist, secondarily I'd say she's a Challenger or Investigator

Reisen: Helper! And even if it's not technically her "personality type" here, she's definitely a Peacemaker

Lumi: Either Peacemaker or/and Individualist, it depends on if he's interacting with other people or not

Flandre: Well, I almost didn't choose one for her at all, these all seem too... outgoing? Individualist if I had to say, which I did



the personality descriptions are nice but the big system they created feels limiting at best and arbitrary at worst, but it's alright if you can break the rules

Hi, I'm one of Lumi's tulpas! I like rain and dancing and dancing in the rain and if there's frogs there too that's bonus points.

I think being happy and having fun makes life worth living, so spreading happiness is my number one goal!

The "wing" system is more about slants/variations within the dominant type, whether they lean towards one side or lean towards another, and the leaning can affect how the dominant personality is expressed. One can have aspects of other personality types without it being their dominant or wing type, of course. I posted the whole shape just to map out all the wings better.

Yeah I get the slant thing and it would be great and make sense... if the adjacent personalities didn't feel so random, I feel like the slant system only gives you two possible options out of eight and a "secondary" system would've worked way better

I saw some people on forums having a system where they had three types (the core, secondary, and tertiary), and every type still has the slanting wing thing. You have one type in each of the three Centers. The personalities were organized based on the Centers, and the wing (I think) is supposed to make sense based on the Center. A "Thinking" personality that's closer to Feeling than the other two Thinking personalities will either slant towards the Feeling personality that's close to Thinking (a 5w4), or slant further into the Thinking Center (a 5w6).


Each Center is called the Head (Thinking 5 6 7) Center, the Heart (Feeling 2 3 4) Center, and the Body (Instinct 8 9 1) Center.


Based on this, with my core type being 1w2 (Body), I think that my mixed-in types are 7w8 (Head) and 4w5 (Heart).

Piano is 5w6 with 4w5 and 9w1.

Luxio is 9w8 with 2w1 and 7w8.

Indigo is 7w6 with 4w3 and 8w7(?)

Radio is 4w5 with 7w6 and 1w9.

(These will probs change as we learn more about the types)

I don't feel like really any of the adjacent personalities fit us... so I guess only the dominant wings are to be accounted for.

We seem complimentary enough. Jaina shores up my weak areas while I generally do the human thing. She's confident and supportive, I'm thoughtful and introspective. And though we're slightly different our principles, morals and goals are aligned.


Darron: 9w1

Jaina: 2w1

Darron: Host 💍 

Jaina: Tulpa 💍 

Aggrok: Tulpa Void Dragon

Viktor: 🐺

      [align=justify]JD’s Guide to Personality Forcing
      Personality forcing can be considered an optional step in the process of creating a tulpa, and it’s entirely okay for you to not force a personality at all. Your tulpa can and will develop its own traits and quirks naturally through life experiences. However, it may aid your tulpa’s development to at least partially define her personality as a groundwork for your tulpa to grow or deviate from. The act of personality forcing itself also puts a lot of focus on your tulpa being a separate sentient entity from you, giving you a nice head start on her becoming an autonomous being. There are many ways to influence or define your tulpa’s personality, and what will work best for you may not work as well for someone else. So I’m going to cover several forms of personality forcing that you can experiment with and employ on your tulpa: list-based trait forcing, symbolic trait forcing, parrot forcing, and music forcing. Each of these are varied enough from each other that at least one of them should cover your needs sufficiently.
      List Based Trait Forcing
      This method of personality forcing is covered in the earliest guides of modern tulpa creation. It’s very straightforward, and consists of defining your tulpa’s personality with an outline of many broad traits. In FAQ Man’s Personality Guide, Dane suggests listing about 30-35 traits, and speaking directly to your tulpa about how those traits are manifested in her. You should talk to your tulpa about, “how the trait helps them rationalize, how the trait works within their logic system, how the trait plays a role in morality, their perception, their likes, dislikes, social endeavors, faith, personality, quirks, emotions, how the trait makes them interpret their own emotions, how the trait plays a role in their hobbies, and many other things not listed here.” The advantage to this method is that you will become very intimate with how your tulpa’s personality works, as the whole process is quite straightforward. The disadvantage is that this method is generally slower and less exciting than other methods.
      Symbolic Trait Forcing
      This method of personality forcing is also covered in earlier guides, but is aimed at people who may not be content with the rinse-repeat trait lecture method. It essentially consists of creating a more abstract way of attributing personality traits to your tulpa that resonates well with you. Common symbolisms include letting the tulpa absorb trait-orbs, drinking trait-potions, etc. This method gives much room for your own creativity. For all anyone cares, your tulpa could be eating broad trait cupcakes with more intricately defined trait sprinkles on top. That advantage to this method is that whatever symbolism you come up with, there’s really no way it can fail. The disadvantages are that is can also be somewhat slower than other methods, and has a little more room for some unpredictably.
      Parrot Forcing
      Parrot forcing is a less commonly used method, since the acts of parroting and puppeting tulpa is still somewhat controversial. I personally find this to be the most efficient method for myself, although it does have its cons compared to other methods. Our personalities today are largely defined by our experiences and memories as a person. We aren’t just born with personality traits -- genetic predisposition aside. The goal of parrot forcing is to allow our tulpa to experience life so it can develop a personality in a similar way we do. Where other methods of personality forcing involve telling your tulpa how to act, parrot forcing involves letting them experience how to act through parroting/puppeting. What do you do while you puppet your tulpa? Whatever you want. Make her walk, make her talk. Take her places in your wonderland, force food and games for her. Act through her the way you think she would act. Is she lovable and sweet? Have her hug you whenever you visit her in your wonderland. Is she totally tsundere? Make her act like she wants nothing to do with you (but really she does). You’re basically kind of roleplaying her using her body, while you’re with her in your body. When you start to feel like you’re really getting used to this exercise, possibly in a few days, stop puppeting cold turkey and let your tulpa take the reigns. The advantage of this method is that with it you can tackle personality, speech patterns, gait, and many other behavioral things all at once. The disadvantage of this method is that you may feel like you missed out on watching your tulpa grow from scratch through it’s own will and intentions.
      Music Forcing
      Forcing personality through music is something I’ve been experimenting with on my youngest tulpa. It involves creating a playlist of songs with themes, moods, or lyrics that reflect the personality you want your tulpa to have, and listening to it with your tulpa while refocusing the meaning of the songs to their personality. It’s like attributing a theme song to them. For example, I wanted my tulpa to be a really energetic party animal, so I played a lot of energetic J-Pop songs towards her. The advantage of this method is that you can tackle both personality and voice at once, if the songs you are playing contain the reference voice you want to use for your tulpa -- not to mention that it’s really fun in general. The disadvantage is that it can be the most unclear method of defining your tulpa’s personality, and you may get tired of listening to the same songs over and over.
      Creating Your Own Method
      There’s a possibility that none of these methods really suit you, or sound appealing. Fortunately, tulpaforcing can be a very creative process, as the rules and laws of it are easily bent by your own will. You may want to go down the path of concocting your own personality forcing method. The focus point of your method is how well it can communicate the host’s intentions to the tulpa, which may actually vary depending on your personality and the desired personality of your tulpa. Perhaps if you wanted a very artistic tulpa, you could create a forcing method involving abstract painting with your tulpa, collaborating with her to create paintings that convey her personality. Or maybe you’d like a tulpa who enjoys traveling around with you; you could take your tulpa to places that instill emotions and memories you’d like to correlate with your tulpa’s personality. There are many possibilities, but the most important bit is that your method can clearly convey your intentions to your tulpa to properly influence her personality. Other than that, you're at your own creative freedom.[/align]

      Hi, so I'm a pretty active day-dreamer and have preexisting "characters". I'm wondering if I can use one of those and just give it a personality, and if that is the case I have a question about parroting. With parroting do you make the tulpa say " I have trait X and Y" or do you make the tulpa act the way you want? So as an example is do I make my tulpa say "I like hot dogs" or do I have a wonderland and have it eat a hot dog?
    • By A Mystic Mess
      I'm very new to tulpamancy, and I've only just started to make my first tulpa, but she seems very angry and violent already. I often receive waves of anger and irritation from her when I try and talk to her. since she is still new, and can't exactly respond, I can't really ask her what's wrong..

      Hi, I have a problem. It turns out that a day and a half ago I began to anguish the idea of ​​having a tulpa (my tulpa is called Kya and it has been a week since I started doing it, which makes her very young) and I was interacting. With her all week. Kya progressed a lot in a short time with vocality. She is very cheerful, always wants to play, is very curious and sees the positive side of everything, basically behaved like a little girl. But when I started to anguish myself at night, I asked him if he could leave me alone for a while until he called her, he happily accepted and said nothing. The next day, I felt he wanted to tell me something but he was holding back. I didn't want to listen to her until I felt better, but after a few hours I stopped feeling her. A day and a half passed and I called her, but she said nothing to me, I was afraid she would feel bad or worse, that she would disappear (since I read that it was possible that the tulpas would not last long) I tried to call her again and she answered.
      At first I doubted if it really was because I didn't feel the same, I felt depressed and sharp. At first he told me he was fine, but after a while he confessed that life was not as he had imagined. Kya believed that everything would be games and fun, but while resting in my head he began to think and realized that life was difficult.
      Now he barely speaks and seems sad. I do not know what to do, I told him that at some point we will play (that always makes him happy) but now he only responded very strongly and discouraged. She also told me that trees bore her (she loved trees!) And she didn't scold me when I heard sad music.
      Help, I don't know what to do.
