Relationship between type 5 and type 9

The observer and the peacemaker

Sherlock Holmes (Sherlock)
Jane Bennet (Pride and Prejudice)


5 is attracted to 9’s tolerance, generosity, acceptance, modesty, humility, sensuality and goodness.
9 is attracted to 5’s softness, calm, wisdom, insight, ingenuity and reliability.
Both are open-minded, thoughtful, patient, rather tolerant and know how to appreciate the simple things in life.
9’s touching ability to merge with softness helps 5, who feels empty inside.
They both value stability and can form a comforting and harmonious relationship.

Points where to be careful

They both like autonomy and tranquility and are able to give the other their own space. This can cause problems based on the fact that neither of them is very good at taking initiative in the relationship.
9 tends to idealise his partner, wanting to emotionally merge together, while 5 can struggle with too much emotional closeness, which can make 5 run away, annoy 9 and change the relationship.
