enneagram 8

  1. Body Triad - Types 8,9,1
    I thought I'd share my thoughts and experiences as an E2 with E8s.
  2. What's my Enneagram type?
    Hi! I was questionning my tritype (874 : messenger) recently. I supposedly share it with people like Lord Byron and Russel Brand. I can relate neither to them, not to the life mission of that type : finding some deep thruth and communicating it to others. Could you help me figure out where I...
  3. What's my Enneagram type?
    I saw her songs listed in the enneagram 7 music section and I wondered about her tritype. She seems to write quite 7ish songs, but her facial expressions in interviews and some themes (very war-like) made me wonder if anyone else types her as 8? This song sounds like an 8 disintegreated into 5...
  4. Type 6 Forum - The Loyalist
    I'm an 8w7 and wanted a 6s perspective on my relationship issues with that type. I want to know what my behaviour looks like to you and what I do wrong in your eyes. I was raised by a couple of 6s who behaved like unhealthy 9 at times and would minimize my issues and failed to stand up for me...

    I have a goal, I move towards it. I'm in the driving seat of my own life. I make choices. People get hurt, that's life. I have a goal, I move and keep on moving. There is only one speed. I know what I want and I'm not making excuses for it. People love my driving spirit. I fight if I have to...
  6. Type 8 Forum - The Challenger
    I either really hurt him or annoyed him, not sure which... Does it make a diff? Either way, he almost totally shut down, says hostile things, and even denies that our relationship was ever different, which is clearly not so...he used to text me all the time, invite me out, get shy/smiley when I...

    Well this probably isn't right but meh.
  8. Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    Basically, this thread is one that requires experiences and solutions. Not answers, I just need enough data to see what I'm doing wrong. Data from the past or anything around the spectrum of time, experiences. To get things started, this thread will be open to anyone, as long as it contains...
  9. Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    I have a few questions, as a 469 I'm interested in the differences between the 468 tritype and my own. Does having 6 and 8 cause you to be more confident? Does the eight make your more apt to pursue someone in a romantic way than other fours normally would? I read that 468 are counter...

    I'm having trouble identifying a character's Enneagram type. In short, I'm a writer, and this character has given me a lot of grief over his type. He just likes to be complicated, I'm sure of it. Initially I thought he might be an 8, then I moved to thinking he was a CP 6w5, and recently I went...

  12. Type 8 Forum - The Challenger
    I have such a hard time working for "the man." Lol. I know it sounds cliché but seriously. I'm told to "tone it down" so I do, then I am told that I am too cold and to warm up, so I do, and then suddenly I am too loud and unprofessional. What the hell do these people want?! I keep finding myself...

  16. Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    Hi! I enjoy writing in my free time, and I'm curious about the relationships between the different enneagram types. It would be awesome if everybody wrote down which enneagram type you are and the enneagram types of the people whom you carry on close relationship, could be friends, your couple...

    I'm curious as to if there's a trend here or not. I have my theories, but we'll see.
  18. What's my Enneagram type?
    I've been pondering about the Enneagram lately, I'm pretty sure about my core type, much less so about my wings. I welcome any kind of advice, constructive criticism and suggestion about my core type and/or tri-type. @Animal, @Oak , @Flatliner , I'll ask for your suggestions too, due to your...
  19. Type 8 Forum - The Challenger
    I'd like to know what, if any, authorities (people, groups, ideas, the law) the rest of you 8's have been ok with submitting to. And in what capacity? (fully, partially, temporarily, blindly) I'm curious. Oh, and I'm responding to my own post next, but I wanted the question to be on its own...
