  1. Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    Hey guys I'm deciding whether I'm an 8w9 or 9w8. I know your thinking "how could you confuse these?" but that's just how it is. I don't fear confrontation, but I do fear getting hurt physically (ganged up on/plotted against mostly in public) sometimes and i'm always aware of possible threats in...
  2. Type 8 Forum - The Challenger
    Tritype: 8w9 > 6w7 > 3w4 Options that I have to avoid for personal reasons: CEO/Businessman, Entrepreneur, Military Options that is currently available to me: Civil Service (City Manager), Foreign Service (Ambassador/Diplomat) , Police Chief/Sheriff I'll be greatful if you can fill me up with...
  3. Type 8 Forum - The Challenger
    Would love to hear thoughts / opinions from 8s or those that love them… I’m trying to get a read on the context of a “friendship” with a guy who is an 8w7. I haven’t had a lot of 8 friends (I’m a 1w9 who used to spend a lot of time in their unhealthy 4 zone and 8s used to scare the living...
  4. ENTJ Forum - The Executives
    Ok so for the longest time I've seen myself as an ENTJ 8 and I have neither the attention span or time to actually read up on enneagram in heavy detail so apologies if this thread is stupid, but I'm a little bit confused hence some people I know say that ENTJ 8s can't exist and/or that I could...
  5. Type 8 Forum - The Challenger
    It seems like the fixes of the type 8 are how they get the power and control they want. Like one with a 5 fix uses their mind to control situations, have power, and protect themselves. While a 5 would try to understand the situation so they can conserve energy an 8 tries to understand a...
  6. Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    My idea is that 639, 631, 379 and 371 are the majority of Western societies. They tend to follow the group and society's rules without thinking much about it. They love sharing positive feelings and seeking attention from social peers. Focused on positive image, these people usually avoid...

    I don’t know if this exists already. I looked but did not see it. All 8s who want to vent, complain, reflect, and otherwise just express yourselves, goooooooo
  8. Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    In the past, I fighted physically with people stronger than me. To this day, I am almost the same, except I am do these verbally, not physically already and that I like to face those above me in social rank or age, unless a person younger than me bullies me. I like to argue with people who are...
  9. Myers Briggs Forum
    INTJ is 2% of total population, type 8 is 3% of total INTJ, let's assume sp is 33% of total type 8 population. This makes my type 8 sp INTJ only 0.02% of total population, 1 in 5000. Indeed I have felt very hard to relate to people e.g. I often wonder why and how their mind operates in such...
  10. Type 6 Forum - The Loyalist
    Hello everyone, long story here so brace yourself. Since day one of hearing about the enneagram I have identified with the 8 and yet my husband has tried to bring the sexual 6 to my attention (although I believe this is because this makes HIM more comfortable with ROLES). I grew up in a...

  12. Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    I'm thinking between 684 and 873, 873 is almost certainly 8w7 which is the more aggressive variant of 8. Plus the ruthless 3, 873 certainly doesn't mind aggression to get what they want. 684 is more likely to snap into rage mode in reaction to some trivial provocation, because 684 is triple...
  13. Type 8 Forum - The Challenger
    Does any other 8 get frustrated to shit when it comes to being heard about your feelings? When other people get their feelings hurt it's always poor them and how can we help. When it's my turn to express myself because I'm hurt it always flips on me. Or if someone pushes me to the limit and I...
  14. Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    As a sp 853 INTJ I'm very secretive, I value privacy highly, I hate disclosing personal information to people whom I don't trust. Therefore I generally dislike talking about my family with unfamiliar people. However, many people think asking nosy questions about someone's family is the best...
  15. 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...
  16. Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    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.
  17. 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...
  18. 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...
  19. 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...
