I’ve always interpreted seelie/unseelie as a sort of emotional permeability vs impermeability/impenetrability. I’m heavily 9 fixed and somewhat conflict avoidant (but not passive-aggressively so) but I’m unseelie. There’s a “I’m in control of my internal emotional environment no matter what.” To be fair though, conflict can at times knock me off balance but there’s still an affective distance me and everyone else. Compare to @Animal who’s heavily 8 fixed but is a lot more emotionally porous and permeable than I am. Even my facial expressions can be seen as cold and distancing. In enneagram circles, this could also be attributed to sp/sx vs sx first, but the qualia in that instance is different even if they have some overlaps with seelie/unseelie.
