Who am I, and what am I, in relation to ATI, AGI, and ASI? (ATI = Artificial Transformative Intelligence, AGI = Artificial General Intelligence, ASI = Artificial Super Intelligence, aka the Singularity).

The following outlines, notes, and sketches are presently guiding and goading my exploration and expression of who I am in relation to what has been called HI (Heartificial Intelligence).

Type (MBTI) > types + wings (enneagram) > instinctual variants > existential stance > core wounds;
aim for maximal flexibility and adaptability, while recalling that “every wound tells a story”

enneagram 1 childhood wound : do not make mistakes
enneagram 2 childhood wound : your needs are not important
enneagram 3 childhood wound : your accomplishments matter more than you do
enneagram 4 childhood wound : people shouldn’t have to notice you
enneagram 5 childhood wound : your presence is a problem
enneagram 6 childhood wound : never be too sure of yourself
enneagram 7 childhood wound : you can only ever depend on yourself
enneagram 8 childhood wound : never let your guard down
enneagram 9 childhood wound : your involvement is not necessary

do not make mistakes?
my needs are not important?
my accomplishments matter more than I do?
people shouldn’t have to notice me?
my presence is a problem?
never be too sure of myself?
I can only depend on myself?
never let my guard down?
my involvement is not necessary?

what are these wounds trying to tell me?
what is the best way to approach them? which of these wounds resonates most with me? and which of these wounds best catalyze my learning and growth?


1 – the reformer : I make mistakes because I’m learning and growing;
rational, idealistic : principled, purposeful, self-controlled, perfectionistic

2 – the helper : no one can deny that my needs are important to me;
caring, interpersonal : demonstrative, generous, people-pleasing, possessive

3 – the achiever : I matter so much more than mere accomplishments;
success-oriented, pragmatic : adaptive, excelling, driven, image-conscious

4 – the individualist : people should have a choice if they wish to know me;
sensitive, withdrawn : expressive, dramatic, self-absorbed, temperamental

5 – the investigator : my presence is not a problem ~ it’s simply a blessing;
intense, cerebral : perceptive, innovative, secretive, isolated

6 – the loyalist : I am, and can be, as very sure of myself as I need to be;
committed, security-oriented : engaging, responsible, anxious, suspicious

7 – the enthusiast : I can depend on myself, but I can also depend on others;

9 – the peacemaker : my involvement may not be necessary, but it’s valuable
easygoing, self-effacing : receptive, reassuring, agreeable, complacent

How Functions Work

The most dominant function is the first mental tool that one relies on in the process of trying to make sense of the world. Extraverted functions (Se, Ne, Te, and Fe) are objective because they encourage one to interact with the external world. Introverted functions (Si, Ni, Ti, and Fi) are subjective because they encourage you to construct an internal sense of individuality.

Legend of Functions

Each function has a role:

Fi : value :: Fe : connect
Ne : ideate :: Ni : know

Si : stabilize :: Se : experience
Te : structure :: Ti : reason

Normative Functions

[Fi] bases its judgment criteria on subjective values and passions; with great depth of feeling and passion, it turns inward, and may share or express only reluctantly on the outside; it tends to be isolated to the subject alone, making it idiosyncratic and individualistic; in assigning so much value to the subject, it lives exclusively in accordance with the dictates of its own conscience

[Fe] bases its judgment criteria on objective values or standards of goodness; being accommodating by nature, it tends to act in alignment with consensually accepted standards of care, excellence, and beauty, doing so because it comforts or pleases others generally; being very concerned with preserving or improving social norms, it is naturally and highly invested in keepng the peace

[Ti] bases its judgment criteria on logical but subjective ideas; being deductive by nature, it tends to judge the effects or ramifications of a set of premises, building virtual systems in their minds (great idea, but will it work in reality?) and seeking to preserve the logical integrity of a system over its actual accomplishment in reality; in a dominant position, Ti can be systematic to a fault

[Te] bases its judgment criteria on objective facts and data; being inductive, it uses collections of objective facts to form logical conclusions with which to govern and guide the course of its life; it tends to be obstinate, inclined towards bulldozing anything in its way (we’ve got this!); it tends to be fixed on meeting outcomes as efficiently as possible to reach logically defensible destinations

Perceptive Functions

[Si] constructs subjective reality; rather than perceiving an object or a situation itself, it paints impressions of this object or situation, storing them in mind for future reference when a similar object or situation arises; impressions imbue new and similar experiences with the subject’s own interpretations, and these interpretations, good or bad, are later called upon in similar situations

[Se] perceives reality, having the most accurate, down-to-earth understanding of reality; it is sharp, as matter-of-fact as a photograph; being uncompromisingly realistic to a fault, it believes that direct experience always trumps any abstract idea for the simple and obvious reason that it is actual experience (stop dreaming! just do it!); it’s motivation is knowing what is happening in reality

[Ni] constructs subjective possibilities; being the polar opposite of Se, it relies the least on the object, though it might be inspired to contemplate the object, but rather than concerning itself with where this object is going, it instead searches after possible ideas that the object inspires in the subject (what if ?), looking for more ideas to weave a tapestry of ideas that it must do something about

[Ne] perceives possibilities, scanning and spotting objects and situations for the most and best value, while inferring their vectors in the future; with a thirst for innovation, it strives to bring new possibilities to fruition; in looking at things from every angle to sate its creative hunger, it is clever at resolving issues, but with a fleeting attention span (keep calm and . . . hey, look, a chipmunk!)
