    Maybe my passion and strengths only reveal themselves in certain kinds of help. I don't want to help people just to help them. I want to help people so they can help themselves and others. And if I'm not doing something I'm passionate about might as well go work construction.

    makes sense.
    There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.

    I once heard a fellow complain about having gone to bed with an 8 and woken up with a 2... I suspect alcohol was involved.

    You can't change types, you can only become healthier. And to do that you have to go against everything you believe in, ironically this seems harder for 8's, there is advice on enneagram sites. Do not be manipulate ever, ever thay are cunts

    well.
    1s - ruthless crusaders
    2s - manipulative people-pleasers
    3s - vindictive elitists
    4s - self-obsessed emos
    5s - reclusive know-it-alls
    6s - skeptical sheep
    7s - materialistic gluttons
    8s - controlling psychopaths
    9s - complacent potheads

    better?

    Anyways, I'm probably a chimera though. ENFPs aren't supposed to be 8s. And 8s aren't supposed to be ENFPs. I seem to neither have the qualities of an ENFP nor the ones of an 8, which is crap!
    it's ok sy, i'm a weirdo too i'm a 3. ENFP's aren't supposed to be 3s and vice versa either.

    that said i think it's actually fairly easy to see how 8 could become 2 by asking what would happen if you placated 8s' basic fear (to protect themselves). once you don't have to protect yourself anymore, and watch out for your own back all the time, you are left with a gift for controlling your environment but not a driving need to do it for yourself. so, in seeing others around you whose lives are difficult, you may then be inspired to use your gift to help them. it's loving and altruistic, like the good side of 2.
