    I've got 8w7 results most often, though I haven't checked out if I'd actually be 3.

    What are some of the words people that know you would use to describe you?
    Entertaining, dependable, intelligent (I get less of this anymore), funny, straightforward, driven, achievement-seeking, confident, assertive, decisive, indecisive, crazy (I get less of this), enthusiastic, supporting.
    Edit: something I get from sources further from me, after a bit of study, I'm also thought of as dull, wild, serious, drinker, lazy, workaholic, failure.

    What are your goals in life?
    Now that my health is back, I need money, and it's gonna be a long but not ultimate goal. Rich fulfilling life - not in terms of money, but in experience and appreciation of world. Having power over my destiny, fun, learning to master myself, developing powers of the mind, exercising intelligence, having a sense of adventure and freedom, developing wisdom and responsibility while maintaining fun and sense of wonder.

    What makes you happy?
    Exchanging ideas, feelings with my loved one. Meeting friends. Playing. Winning, performing well. Enjoying sunlight, warm weather, eating, drinking. Knowing to understand a concept well and using it to gain leverage. Understanding something special, gaining an intellectual insight of something worthwhile.

    What would you say is your worse characteristic?
    Aggression, attempts to overcontrol when losing control, sometimes I'm distrustful, having grudge, demanding a lot, carefree only with selected ones, sugar topping over steel frame, with little bunnies and hearts inside.

    An Enneagram site calls 8w7s Mavericks

    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    The latest test I took at Eclectic Energies Enneagram Tests (free) gave a balanced wing 3, with 8w7 just near the top of possibilities. So, perhaps my answers weren't those of an 8w7, or perhaps they were, I haven't verified the results yet. Must give time. I don't know enough of enneagram to really tell about it, apart from tests and reading descriptions.

    But, I think it's a good description for type number 3 to say that success means different things to people. 7w8 and 8w7 came next after my 3w2 and 3w4 results.

    8w7 profile from "The Wisdom of the Enneagram" By Don Richard Riso and Russ Hudson-

    The Eight with a Seven wing- The Independent.

    Healthy- Having a quick mind combined with a vision for practical possibilities, people of this subtype are often charismatic and able to attract the support of others to join them in their vision. They are action-oriented, and want to have an impact on their world. They are also good at challenging others to stretch their abilities and to surpass their own expectations so that their lives can be better in some practical way. This is the most independent subtype, often entrepreneurial, and interested in creating projects that will ensure their independence.

    Average- People of this subtype are adventurous risk-takers; they tend to have "big plans" and, in order to enlist the cooperation of others, to make big promises and exaggerate the potential of their ventures. They are also one of the most sociable types, talkative and outgoing, with great self-confidence. They are pragmatic, practical, and competitive and are not overly concerned with pleasing others or with putting up with what they perceive as weakness or inefficiency. They can become impatient, impulsive, and more likely to be led by their feelings than the other subtype. They are more openly aggressive and confrontational and less likely to back down from a fight.
    8w7 from this random website that's awesome- Descriptions of the Enneagram Wings

    Eight With a 7 Wing
    Awakened Eights with a 7 wing are often expansive, and powerful. Gregarious and generous, they may display a cheerful bravado. Can be forceful but with a light touch, funny. Often have a sense of humor about themselves. Generally more extroverted, ambitious and materialistic. May talk loud and be sociable partygoers. Sometimes driven to bring the new into being. Can be visionary, idealistic, enterprising. Willing to take risks. May think more clearly than Eights with a 9 wing; 7 wing brings an intellectual capacity. When more entranced, aggression combines with gluttony to form an almost virulent tendency to addiction. Many entranced Eights with a 7 wing have had drug and alcohol problems or tensions around addiction. Prone to temperamental ups and downs - can be moody, egocentric, quick to anger. Tendency to court chaos, inflate themselves narcissistically. Some are ruthlessly materialistic. Can use people up, suck them dry. Maybe be explosive or violent, prone to distorted overreaction.

    Real-Life Eights With a 7 Wing: Leslie Abramson, F. Lee Bailey, Lucille Ball, Sean Connery, Jimmy Connors, Robert Conrad, Brian Dennehy, Lawyer Alan Dershowitz, Danny DeVito, Kirk Douglas, Rush Limbaugh, Fritz Perls, Ann Richards, Geraldo Rivera, Telly Savalas, Frank Sinatra, Grace Slick, Donald Trump, Zorba the Greek.

    Movie Eights With a 7 Wing: John Cassavetes, I'm Almost Not Crazy; Michael Douglas, Wall Street; Robert Duvall, The Great Santini; Gene Hackman, Class Action; Christine Lahti, Leaving Normal; Laura San Giacoma, sex, lies and videotape; Ron Silver, Reversal Of Fortune; Elaine Strick, September.

    I wish I had an 8 friend in real life take me under their wing. 9w8s and 8's mesh well together.

    Ahhhh but a real 8 wouldn't want you under his wing for very long.
    He'd want to see you soar, my friend.
