Immediately, my first reaction is "If you dont see yourself as the go-getter, confident type, you're probably not an 8."I don't really see myself that way.
When it comes to MBTI and Enneagram.. The only thing that fit me 100% was the type 8 description. As far as I know, and from the people I have talked to, it seemed that type 8 was an instant click with others as well. I waivered on MBTI, confused on it.. but I knew for certain I was type 8 when I read it. Like someone had written a description about my motivations in life, and I needed to check my window for signs of a stalker.That seemed 8-ish to me. But, on a regular basis... nothing fits. Idk, I've just lost all my faith in this system.
My instinct is that you're not a type 8 at all.. but I don't think you should give up quite yet. Enneagram is about what moves you and shapes you.. MBTI is about giving others hints on how to interact with you. This is the way I've come to understand the systems.
