    I really would like to be an 8, but I think it's just my ENTJ 8w7 best friend rubbing off on me (he's too 8 to function though lol. he's literally been attacked by a pack of wolves and killed all of them with his bare hands. perhaps this is just the combination of being abused, ENTJ and 8 though) as a kid I was more 9-ish, but I I do feel I lack the energy of the 9 and the connection to 6 and 3. since 8 seems a popular opinion

    for 8
    - I'm an entrepreneur in training (probably the most 8-ish thing I can think of)
    - I HATE being told what to do
    - I have to work really hard not to have problems with authority
    - I don't really try to be the leader, but I'm terrible at following people
    - extremely confident and assertive naturally
    - I am kinda 5-ish under stress (but more 1-ish)
    - I'm not as crazy as my ENTJ friend, but, for a gay ENFP, I'm PRETTY choleric

    against 8
    - I'm more merciful on those who are weaker than me
    - I'm not aggressive
    - if I were in a fight, I'd run (well, unless I was REALLY mad lol)
    - I was picked on when I was younger and didn't really fight back until later
    - I was not 8-ish as a kid at all, my 8-ishness kicked in about 8th grade
    - I'm more of a chaotic good type of guy than a bad boy
    - I'm not very intense. in fact, I rather dislike things that are highly intense
    - I'm not competitive at all. I don't like sports or other competitive activities
    - I don't feel any sort of connection to 2
    - I'm not brave enough to be an 8
    - I don't consider myself very masculine (but some other people do)

    Honestly, most of the cons concerning 8 don't really seem to detract from the idea, I mean not all 8's are super assertive tyrants who reign power over everyone, they can be nice and peaceful. Also, some of the other cons that you mentioned could be explained if your 8w9, having that sort of chill personality mixed in with assetivness.

    the main thing I see against me being an 8 is that I could not under any circumstances see myself being a bully (although I could see myself mercilessly beating the shit out of one and have done so a few times lol). similarly, I'm pretty feminine and people used to say I was a wimp until around 10th grade.

    But being a bully is an essential quality of bring an 8, unless of course you're talking about an unhealthy 8. And from what I can tell you seem like a fairly psychologically healthy person

    Also, try not to focus too much on who you once were, but what you are now. Even if you didn't feel like an 8 as a kid, do you feel like an 8 as an adult (assuming that your somewhere in your twenties)?

    When I go to my 8 wing it's very much about defending the little guy. If someone steps on an insect in my presence, you had better watch out. I'm pretty sure that's an 8 thing, defender of the weak and helpless-

    looking back on things, I've had a ton of 8-ish moments all throughout school and I've said some crazy stuff to authority figures that no one else would really get away with.

    for example, an overzealous choir director senior year of high school tried to tear me down in front of about 40 guys (it was a men's choir), so I told her "we need to talk after class" and after class was like "look, Ms. _______ , I'm gonna be blunt. You don't have any real authority over me. I'm set for college and I could never come back to this class again and be perfectly fine. I only listen to you because 1) disturbing the harmony of the class is usually not worth it and 2) I respect you (which I really did or I wouldn't have said it) and you have information that I don't. that being said, I'd rather keep things win-win than have to resort to unpleasantries". from there, things went surprisingly well and we talked out all our differences and had a great rest of the year. a few other guys who overheard were shocked (most of the school choir is terrified of this woman) and they were like "how did you do that?". I replied "she's really a nice woman, you just need to be assertive and direct and communicate honestly with her"

    Sounds like an 8 if I ever saw one.

    So 8 it is then?

    Cool

    Hmmm.... just wondering, have you also thought about making a type video and seeing what results you might get from that?
