    Thank you. And i am definite 3, you should see me failing at something or winning to see how my life depends on it. I have identity struggles. I used to be 3-like shallow until 1,5 yr ago when I started this journey and decided to look inward and know the real me. It wouldnt happen this early if i didnt have much family problems that caused me to become less functional


    And yes, whatever type u r ; just look at the core motivations and determine it that way.

    Example; there are ENFP 1s (little linguist who used to post on the forum was one) and ISTJ 1s - so how could description of type 1 be good? It cant. It can dEscribe majority of 1s - probably TJs... But not EP 1s... Same with any type. But core motivations are always spot on!!

    - I am constantly 8, but that doesn't mean I go bossing people around all day. lol 8s are bossy when (or when they preceive) people are their way. if you are in an 8s way, they are going to remove you.
    - 8 is not about regulation. 8 is about minimizing restraints on oneself and . regulation is what unhealthy 8s do in an attempt at a "I need to control my environment so it doesn't control me" mentality. the basic need is freedom and control over YOUR domain, not other peoples'. problems occur when 8s don't know what their domain is.
    - actually, a lot of 8s, self included absolutely HATE controlling other people and get pissed off as hell when other people are controlling
    - 8s are adamant about what they care about, but not about things they don't care about
    - any MBTI type can be any Enneatype. there is no direct correlation between cognition and motivation/fear.
    - if you really want an 8 to like you, just leave them alone and let them do their thing. that's when they're trully happy, not from bossing people around all day
    dude, you change your type everyday. maybe you are an 8, but just because someone disagrees with you doesn't mean that they 'have little understanding'. you aren't the authority on the enneagram.

    when you put it that way, I guess I did sound a little too "authoritative". but I did do a ton of research into type 8 this time and I'm pretty sure I get it now.
