What are some of the negative shared traits of Enneagram Types 3 and 9?

Some of the negative shared traits of Threes and Nines are that they depend too much on external approval. Therefore,  they pursue goals that hold no real interest or personal meaning, just for gaining acceptance by others. Also, due to their ruthlessness, they can have difficulty attending to their deepest feelings. As a result, they can be complacent, disengaged and dissociated.
