    what are 8w9 characters like?

    I feel like i'm getting good at typing characters of all the other enneagram types except for this one. Could they resemble a 7 or 9 sometimes due to their more laid-back style of being an 8?

    They seem like confident, self assured but quiet 9s that would knock you the fuck out tho if they really felt justified. Some are less lone-wolfey and some more. Its usually seen the clearest when they get angry. They'll have same fierce look in their eyes like every 8, but with the 8w7 it always comes with some kind of inner nervousness, headyness, hidden anxiety. When 8w9s get angry they dont seem scared, they really are just angry (but seem at the same time funnily enough more chill).

    So you'd say that a lot of them tend to be introverts rather than extroverts?

    Well, yup, but they'll never appear shy. Its just that they literally only speak when they want to and other people tend to respect their more quiet nature more readily than other kinds of intro's. But they can of course also be talkative, like if they'd be an E-type like ESTP for example.

    What BS. 8's are ExTJs and the occasional ESTP. Having a 9 wing just makes them less in your face not introverted.

    To the OP, i'd say they're probably be the brand of 8 that most would prefer to have around.

    Ambiverted'd be the right word. They can def be withdraw-ish.

    Black bear. Slow to anger but once they get going, better stay out of their way.

    ESTP 8w9 here... i was camping/crabbing with a buddy and his friends. I'm not sure all their types but the primary guy has been a friend of my for 30 years. Hes ESTx (leaning toward ESTJ) 8w7 or 7w8.

    If this is a conversation about how talkative/ethusiastic an 8w9 can be - around 'normal' people that i know moderately energetic and talkative, but around my buddy - he's an animal. His speech pattern is very directional (Te i think) and dominating in nature. Not on purpose, but very much 'this is my trip, my ideas are the best, i need this done, you do this' etc..
    He's got tons of energy, and he's 6'7" 240lb. Around him I get more quiet because I know that if i slip up i'll be a target, so i play defense til i better understand the group dynamics.

    in that crowd, not knowing everybody, and the huge energy of the 7 gets me to withdraw a bit. its too much energy/attention to compete with. i strike when its in my favor only... flawless defence vs the ultimate offence.

    one night we played poker, after 3 people were out , they went to sleep leaving just my buddy teh 7 and another guy who is maaaaaybe ESFJ/6 and a big shit talker, and i'd been on another trip with him in the past, so i knew him more... i felt more comfortable here and once the flow started going i was destroying them in both wit and poker.
