    I'm definitely aware of it, and yes, it's slumbering deep down. It makes me so conflicted inside lol. I feel like Anakin Skywalker. : P

    I know when to use it and when not too. I know how use it for constructive purposes as opposed to destructive ones.

    lol so many assumptions being made in this thread.

    I had a reiki energy reading and he told me that I'm scared to death of my own power and sabotage myself so that I don't succeed at anything. I'm wondering if other 8's have ever encountered similar issues. As this is unconscious behavior I don't fully agree with the assessment because I haven't experienced enough to know if I do it or not, but the concept is intriguing to me because I have pondered the debate between power and isolation vs friends and togetherness.

    It could be the fact that I was raised by a group of people who bring sour grapes to the next level.

    Or you know, you could not be an 8 core. There's also that.

    Yes but that's not related to what I'm asking.

    A man such as myself who is bombastic and outspoken without meaning to be causes a lot of trouble pretty much everywhere he goes and thus developes a fear of being himself. People get offended, people cry, people get scared, people make verbal attacks etc. It makes agorophobia the preferred method. It feels like the faster I want to move the more people want to prevent me from moving. Like I'm trying to slog through a shallow pool full of mines while an audience is throwing rocks at me. Check out the responses in this thread if you want an example. Pretty much my life 24/7.

    So what you're really asking is, "do you contain yourself for fear of being judged or held back?". There's a world of difference between that and the question in the OP. The reason you got some negative responses is because you didn't provide any context for the question/phrased it poorly, which made you look like you were playing the same old self-aggrandizing tune, "I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds".

    Now that you clarified it, you might get the answers you want.
