Let's talk about vengeance.
If you have any thoughts on the topic, feel free to post them here. I have some specific questions, but I'd love to hear your input regardless of whether you decide to address these questions specifically. Also feel free to address those questions that appeal to you and ignore the others.
If you know your tritype and variants, please list them. Also, I'd love to hear from other types besides 8s.
How do you relate to the type 8 passion for vengeance?
Do you like to watch others suffer, or do you just feel like you're "evening the score?"
Would anyone be willing to share concrete examples or stories of how this has played out in your life?
If you've seen vengeful patterns in yourself, have you done anything to try to fix this behavior, or do you see it as a good thing, a self-protective mechanism you would never want to change?
Has this calmed or changed over the course of your life?
Do you see vengeance and sadism in your behaviors as a young child?
If you get revenge or "even the score," how do you feel afterwards?
Has this sort of behavior or thinking caused problems in your life or in your relationships?
Have you used your enneagram study to help you recognize and reconcile some of your vengeance patterns? Was it easy for you to see vengeance in yourself?
Do you ever feel disgusted with yourself for being cruel or for how angry you get?
Would you consider your vengeance more 'angry' or 'cold-hearted?'
Does your idea of "evening the score" apply to yourself, too? In other words, if you fuck up, do you feel like it's fair for the other person to expect you to own up to what you did? Are you willing to apologize and earn back their respect in this instance?
