    I think you need to stop trawling descriptions for surface characteristics (which are far more malleable than some seem to think) and start examining your own subconscious motives. Consider your natural response to situations, try to examine every little decision you make, even the ones you tend to make without realising it. A pattern will eventually emerge, hopefully along the lines of one of these:

    1. Being deadly critical of oneself and others for not living up to lofty standards.
    2. Creating an image of selflessness and giving.
    3. Creating an image of confidence and achievement.
    4. Creating an image of imperfection, frailty and uniqueness. Being deeply absorbed in emotion.
    5. Hiding away from the world, watching and hoarding instead of participating.
    6. Wearing your anxiety on your sleeve, seeking security but doubting everything.
    7. Being optimistic and always looking on the bright side of life, constantly scanning for new opportunities to "escape" and keep things exciting.
    8. Having an excessive lust for life, being strong and attacking challenges head-first.
    9. Being agreeable and accommodating, under emphasising your own intentions for the sake of others.

    Also remember, we aren't absolutely ruled by these patterns - we can break them any time we want. We're just not always aware of being in their grip. You need to identify those times you're caught up in a familiar pattern and try to uncover the underlying, unspoken motivations that cause it.
    8 sounds like me with the exception of the challenges part. I like to take the easy way if I can get the same results

    I think the "challenger" archetype is more of an 8w7 thing. 8w9s are more "solid", though they won't hesitate to butt heads if someone's trying to control them.

    narrowed it down to 8 or 7w8 ( I know which one I'd like to be, but not which one I really am)

    7
    - hedonistic
    - enjoy variety
    - attracted to glamour
    - strong appreciation for beauty
    - constantly dreaming for perfect livestyle
    - easily distracted/trouble focusing
    - disgusted by most people's lack of fashion
    - frequently laughing to myself about something
    - discomfort and poor quality are of unacceptable to me
    - vain

    NOT 7
    - not sanguine
    - introspective
    - opposed to charming my way out of situations
    - not nervous
    - lower energy level overall

    8
    - freedom is the most important thing in the world to me
    - hate being told what to do/extreme contempt for authority
    - overall attitude of "I'm here, deal with me bitches!"
    - direct in dealing with conflict
    - judge people based on their psychological strength
    - can be a bitch when people aren't willing to communicate with me
    - rhett butler is basically (a cooler version of) me as a 40 year old
    - spent my childhood frustrated that I wasn't stronger
    - when I saw a smaller kid getting picked on, I would get so angry with myself for not being able to kick the bigger kids ass, similarly
    - soft 2-ish spot for cute things
    - good leader (I think so at least)
    - people in real life constantly compare me to Samuel L Jackson or your stereotypical black preacher
    - extremely protective, always felt like it was my job to punish crooks
    - withdrawn, cold and calculating if being assertive and direct doesn't work
    - merciless
    - willing to go much further to get what I want than most people

    NOT 8
    - not competitive (seriously, who friggin cares if you loose an arm wrestling match)
    - trouble focusing
    - shy and introverted up until around 14 or so
    - introspective (apparently neither 8s nor 7s are said to be highly introspective)
    - don't mind conflict, but I don't thrive on it either
    - strive for equal footing as opposed to superiority
    - if someone wanted to fight me...I would run
    - low pain tolerance (a self preservation thing perhaps?)

    both 7 and 8
    - assertive
    - love to be outrageous and controversial
    - big personality
    - overconfident at times
    - apathetic to other's opinion of me

    Some Se-Ni type (not necessarily SP), and probably a 3. You seem to be shedding off a lot of baggage or something.. or just finding yourself. You could be too young to type (I don't mean anything bad about that btw).

    Stop with the endless lists of character traits, they aren't helping.

    Like I said before, look at what motives the types, and then examine your own behaviour for a similar pattern. Who gives a shit if you "hate people's lack of fashion", that can have all sorts of motivations.

    • Eights want to be strong - they're assertive, bull-headed and act from their gut.
    • Sevens want to be happy - they have over-active minds and optimistic expectations, and they jump at every new opportunity.


    Which of these tips the balance?

    Here are a few examples of 7s that you can relate on:

    Serge Gainsbourg, french histrion who came from a shy and daydreaming child and young man to a provocative superstar (7w6 Sx/Sp):

    Jim Morrison, introspective and daydreaming rock star with some idealist tendencies:

    [youtube=6tsGHkHYiKA]Jim Morrison 7w8 Sx/Sp[/youtube]

    Johnny Rotten, came from a catastrophic and lonely childhood and a looser to the lead singer of the Sex Pistols:

    I read your post (on the first page, will go through if have time) it seems that you're in a 2 integration stage. From my understanding of enneagram integration doesn't mean that you will have the weaknesses of a 2 if you're an 8, it just means you gravitate toward that kind of behavior while still retaining the characteristic weakness of 8, which is the fear of vulnerability.

    What are your defense mechanisms? What is your main emotion?

    I think JCF and enneagram type has something to do with your listed behavior. If I'm really Fi-inferior and a type 8 then it would make sense why I hate dealing with kids. Maybe it's the empathy from Fi and the protective nature of type 8 which is what causes you to be such a way as listed in your OP?
