This is another thing that angers 8's that I do. I often ask 8's to repeat themselves for clarity. It seems that 8's absolutely hate to repeat themselves. Why is that?If you have an agenda, are trying to pump me for information about myself or other people, or generally being a repetitive pain, we're done.
This raises another point. Being ENTP and a core head center type, I really am not that action oriented. I will eventually take action, but I want to just sit and talk about how something is going to be done and understand all of the mechanics behind how the task will be performed before I actually perform it. This drives 8's nuts, because it seems that they want to give someone a very brief preview over how something will be done, and then they just expect that person to jump into action. This is not how I function at all, and it makes most type 8's livid.I would wonder why you aren't actually doing it. I don't have an issue with wanting clarification on something but you can't stand still and just ask questions. My thought would be that you don't want to and/or don't plan to do anything.
2) My problem is that I have an 8w9 co-worker and he wants you to get things lightning fast with very little clarification. Plus, he does a shitty job of explaining things in the first place. When I ask for clarification he gets furious and laughs at me like I'm some type of dumbass for not just getting it, right off the bat. This makes me want to punch him in the face. Anyway, so it's a tough situation because my co-worker is the only other person that works with me at night because I work the night shift and it's dead. So all I have is him to rely on. I guess what I will have to (like you said) annoy the hell out of my co-worker and bombard him with questions.
