I have an aversion to the number 9. It makes me feel uncomfortable, as it feels unbalanced. What's wrong with me?
The number 9 on its own doesn't bother me too much, and it doesn't bother me at all if the 9 is at the front of the number. 9s in the middle of 3 digit numbers and over are mostly acceptable depending on the following them though they still cause some discomfort.
The problem is worst when the 9 is on the end of the number, particularly if it's 2 digits long. The worst number for this is 29, which I feel the need to look away from. My friend refers to the number as 28+1.
9 feels like it's sitting on the edge of a cliff, and I want it to either fall off or move forward. It feels fine if it's balanced, such as by being the first digit of the number (numbers feel as though they're supporting it when they're behind, though it still feels on the edge if it's at the back) though if it's supported by another 9 or a 6 it's fine, ie 69, 99, 699, etc.
