    8s and 4s are the two most emotionally charged types.

    There's probably even more similarities than this, it's easy to understand why a 4 would think they have an 8 wing when actually they're just healthy 4s.

    I have an 8 wing... I also have a 1 wing... I'm special
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    Murkrow, I think what Captain Chick is saying is that most people are aware that the wing has to be adjacent to the basic type in enneagram. Granted like you, I have seen others purport their being some wing that is not adjacent to the basic type, i.e., 5w8, 3w5, etc. Those people are oblivious to the basic principles of the enneagram. I think your lead-in post was misleading to readers that a large numbr of people were claiming to be wing 8s which is not the case. I see most people on the forum claiming wings 4,5,6 which coincides with the majority of types on this forum.

    Uhhh...I just took the enneagram test last night. I scored highest on 1 then second on 8 then I believe third on 5. I assumed that meant 1w8 but I guess not.

    Don't really care though because enneagram is more of a mood not a way of life. I am incredibly idiosyncratic in the results of that test.

    This is my point exactly. People like MBTI dichotomies (not Jung's cognitive functions) because it provides simplicity and no real need to dig deeper. It is rare that your test results will show high on either wing. As an E9 sp/so, w8 and w1 are some of my lowest scores. I think that wings are redundant anyhow since they only repeat your variant stacking. Similar to those who put emphasis on the non-essentials of dichotomies such as J/P in MBTI, determining wings in enneagram is no more worth while.

    Type 4: The Artist. The intuitive, reserved type. (No.)
    Type 5: The Thinker. The perceptive, cerebral type. (What other way is there to solve problems?)
    Type 6: The Skeptic. The committed, security-oriented type. (Not really.)
    Type 7: The Generalist. The enthusiastic, productive type. (Thought I'd score higher here)
    Type 8: The Leader. The powerful, aggressive type. (Definitely)
    Type 9: The Peacemaker. The easygoing, accommodating type. (NO. Screw that. I am not to be pushed around.)
