I'm curious to hear from someone who has a nine with an eight wing how they see their eight effecting their nine dominance. I ask because, to me, 8 and 9 seem like two very contrasting ways of dealing with the world. When I took the written enneagram test, 9 was my highest score and 8 was my lowest, and my 1 scored in the middle between my highest and lowest scores. On the one hand, there's a peacemaker who wants everyone to get along but on the other hand there's a challenger who willfully confronts other people. How does that work? I hope it doesn't suggest to anyone that 9s are incapable of confrontation and such, but as a type which thesis is largely against there being any conflict, let alone dealing with it, I'm just at a loss of thought how a 9w8 deals with the world and in what ways a 9 sees a wing one as less prevalent in their personality over an eight.
