    ^Yeah, you may be right. I honestly don't know much about enneagram stuff really, but I thought 8s were the controlling leader type that value independence, and I could still see that in ENFJs, even if they don't appear to be as outwardly aggressive as Te doms. I'd listen to your analysis more than mine though.

    There's definitely a correllation between Te and 8 but Se also. Se and 8. Both, as in ESFP/ENTJ means 8 is common among those types.

    I've always associated 8 with Se, but come to understand it aligns with Te just as much.

    Se and Te. Even the 8s that don't use Se/Te have that flavoring. I know an 8 that I can't decide Te-dom or Se-dom for.

    8 and Te/Se loop are basically the same thing described by two different personality systems. It is possible to have one without another but the two are just natural fit.


    How can you be the real "boss" if you don't have commanding/organizing skills and ability to see what is going on ? Or if you have good commanding/organizing skills and ability to see what is going on there are good chances that you will be in charge sooner or later.

    I think that, traditionally, Te-ness is most associated by people with 8-ness...I identify as ESTP, but I've been called an ENTJ several times in real life by people who were familiar with MBTI... it comes across as 8-ish in people and people mistake 8-ness FOR Te

    Yes, Se vacuums up everything and dumps it into Ni but Te is going to decide how/where it's used. At least that's how I see it.

    Even if they don't want to be the boss they will be because a) they can't handle it being done by incompetent people and b) for an 8, they'll act if their environment is being invaded.
    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.

    I presume that this is because of ability to push through thing and not really being under anyones control ? (this is perhaps the only way you can be 8 without having Te in the mix)

    yeah, I have the tendency to ignore protocol and get shit done in most cases... see a problem and solve a problem!

    My dad is absolutely an 8 and many people think ENTJ. He isn't, he's an ESTJ, perhaps ESTP.
