  1. [Enneagram Type 8] Tyoe 8 Superpower

    Type 8 Forum - The Challenger
    I seem to be a barometer for hidden things. Looking into your face, if you’re offering me 63% of yourself I will feel every one of the 37 percentage points you’re holding back. I won’t know why a third of you isn’t showing up. I won’t know whether it’s something I’ve done or whether you are...

    Be it short encounters or long relationships; I'd be thankful if you could share your experiences with 8s here. Thoughts of the general description of the type are welcome too. Links to older threads with this topic would help aswell. I cannot find any.

  4. Nitpicky 8 VS Aggressive 1 differences?

    Body Triad - Types 8,9,1
    I understand at the base what the difference between 1's and 8's are. I get the basic stuff, but the one thing that throws me off is every so often I meet people. Usually male, who I can't tell which one they are. Sometimes I think they are 8's (or possibly CP-6) with a tendency to nitpick at...
  5. [Enneagram Type 8] Enneagram 8s- Describe your innocence

    Type 8 Forum - The Challenger
    How are 8s said to be innocent on the inside but at the same time have a cunning and deceitful side? When they said "the 8 protects his innocence" do they mean he's just emotionally innocent? like they're emotionally "childlike" and don't want their feelings hurt? I think I might be an so 8w9, I...
  6. Could I Be An Enneagram 8? Discrepancies in type descriptions...

    What's my Enneagram type?
    Maybe I can get clarity here- I do think I share many 8 characteristics but so many descriptions Ive come across are completely opposite to my character- And so I go through phases where I'm positive I'm a 7w8 and other times a 8w9. I am definitely IEE/ enfp though. - I can say that people...
  7. Jim in Boston getting rocked by the Enneagram

    The last few years my wife and I have gotten into the enneagram. It has transformed our personal journeys as well as our marriage. Super thankful to have people to process with. I'm a musician, composer, and studio geek on the north end of Boston just trying to use what I have to make the world...
  8. Would You Be Willing to Help Me Find My Gut Type? Pretty Please?

    Body Triad - Types 8,9,1
    Hey, I'm posting this to the 8, 9, and 1 threads in hope of some insight. I'm stuck in between these three types as my gut type, and thought it would be best to ask the gut types themselves for more info in this. I'm currently stuck between these three as my gut type: 9w8, 8w9, and 1w9. So my...

  11. [Enneagram Type 8] Are you sexually dominant or submissive?

    Type 8 Forum - The Challenger
    8s are naturally dominant in the way they navigate the world. But, as an 8, are you still dominant during sex, or do you like to feel submissive for once? If you chose submissive, do you still feel like it is a powerful act to be submissive, or does it turn you on to lose control?
  12. Enneagram Childhood Wounds

    Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    Taken from the EnneaApp by Lori Ohlson. I'm unsure if this has been posted on PerC before, but I wanted to share in case it isn't. Type 1 These children felt heavily criticized, punished, or not good enough. Household rules may have felt inconsistent. As such, they became obsessed with being...
  13. 1 vs 8 vs 9?

    Body Triad - Types 8,9,1
    I've been trying to figure out my friends gut type with his corresponding wing, but to no avail. He is a perfectionist and cares a great deal about self improvement. However, he doesn't do it for moral reasons and doesn't consider himself immoral if he doesn't do the right thing. My friend...
  14. [Enneagram Type 8] Newcomer Dunkirk actor : Fionn Whitehead

    Type 8 Forum - The Challenger
    Hi guys! Fionn Whitehead stars in Nolan´s "Dunkirk" as the lead. He´s a newcomer and not too well media trained, so his reactions seem pretty genuine and I think I got his type just from watching the interviews. I was intrigued by how out of place he seemed around his SP costars, he just...
  15. [Enneagram Type 8] When do you garner your own respect?

    Type 8 Forum - The Challenger
    Dear Eights, A very common thing I tend to hear (and see) when it comes to eights is that what they do, achieve, say, etc, often enough can make people proud of this eight, or it makes others intimidated, annoyed, etc, though the 'strength' with which an eight can push things forward can in my...
  16. Help Needed: 387 vs 837

    Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    Hi. I self type as an 8w7 3w2 7w8 sx/so. However, I'm unsure as to whether I am a core type 3w2 or 8w7. What I need help with is highlighting the differences between the two types while keeping in mind that I do have both in my tritype. Ways I would describe myself: - I am argumentative and...
  17. Working with the 468 Tritype

    Working with the 468 468s can have trouble identifying what is a true emergency and what just feels like an emergency. If their internal alarm bells go off, the 468s are in fight or flight. Once their emotions are triggered their adrenaline is running in hyper-drive and needs to be discharged...
  18. Enneagram 469 or 468? Help?

    What's my Enneagram type?
    Hi there! So, for the longest time, I have been wondering if actually instead of 469, I'm 468 tritype. I read the Enneagram 8's description here. Namely how they fear being controlled by others, how they hate weakness, etc. All of this is... me. I also checked out the definition of the 468...
