leap or slide

EnneaThought® for the Day

Type Five EnneaThought® for December 21st

Today, do the opposite of your ordinary personality pattern. As a Five, leap unprepared into something and see what happens. (Personality Types, 173)

Does it count if, instead, I slide sideways through my mostly unstructured day, playing Matchington Mansion over multiple sets of five lives?

The personality types corresponding to Karen Horney’s Withdrawn strategy are the Four, Five, and Nine. […Being present] goes against the grain for these three types who would generally prefer to distance themselves physically and/or mentally and emotionally.

When they say leap, they mean it!
