    I can't empathize type 8s wanting to get into conflict. Arguing with someone that has a extreme emotional bias to their conflict is a waste of time almost like religion debates. I think type 9s have the better outlook when dealing with conflict. Type 9 way of thinking usually has deals with conflict by retreating and sweeping things under the rug which in my opinion is the best route. It's less taxing on energy.

    Yeah I missed this comment. The growth for type 5 is to be type 8. I assume they turn into type 8 or something. When they do, they act on faults and inconsistency onto people or their arguments instead of retreating. I've done this before with people who were malicious. I usually prefer retreating most of the time.

    Not really. It's more about learning to take action in the world.

    I was waiting for the day you and I would meet.

    And it creates MORE problems. Sweeping things under the rug is no way to deal with anything, certainly not for a mature adult. Deal with problems, don't hide in a corner and bury your head in the sand.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

You always know what is on their minds and where they stand on any given issue. Also, you never wonder where you stand in relation to them. If there is something they don't like they tell you straight air it out and then seek resolution. Since 8's have a line to type 2, they are often generous with their time and energy and have a large circle of freinds (and sometimes have difficulty saying no, especially when it comes to their own children). They aren't known to hide and make petty swipes. They are very much "what you see is what you get". They also generally aren't known to attack or bully (that's the domain of CP6's). They also tend to engage in open dialogue and encourage open discussion because they value truth and honesty. Also, if they sense any kind of underlying issue which needs to be addressed they will bring it out into the open and confront head on. Also, They aren't petty, nit-picky, or critical people.

    Just wanted to share

    You just described me perfectly!
