8w9. Though I'm definitely a 7 where it matters (core fear/neuroses), I relate more to the 8w9 type description in being patient and wanting peace, but setting up boundaries for myself or others, and guarding them. I recognized the bunker mentality, especially with people I don't trust or get a bad feeling from. Same deal with the intensity - I caught myself taking action to swat away pain, and love the body sensation of getting down into something, including conflict. I knew exactly what the type felt like physically when I read about it.
What cracked it was that I don't do all this right away, it always comes after thinking about it first. I do sometimes resort to these strategies, but they're off and on throughout the day. I am always, however, thinking. When things get bad, I tend to make bizarre assumptions and fail to act from scattered thinking than make poor decisions from acting without thinking at all, at least as a first strategy. When things are good, you're more likely to remember my ideas than my exertion on its own. When it comes down to it, I'm a realistic idealist.
A lot of it too is that the Self Pres 7 is not as high energy as the other two variants. When you take away the energy outward, the type becomes much different than most type descriptions depict. You don't really get a "free spirit" or "partier" 7, more of a practical, earthy one.
