    It actually seems perfectly feasible. 8w7 sort of fits with the whole aggressive social activist stereotype given to the type. They'll be the type to really call people out on their bullshit whenever they're offended by something unethical.

    Basically, they'd be like a more ethical, open-minded version of Tony Soprano (ESTJ 8w7 So/Sx)

    of course it's feasible.

    I admit to originally having my suspicions regarding e8 ENFPs as well until I learned that one of my closest friends is in fact one. And it's real is all I can say. I also admit to thinking she was an ENTJ for quite few years prior...

    Still I think most ENFP 8w7s are mistyped 7w8s that don't identify with the frivolous e7 descriptions.

    Type 8 is basically all about domineering and controlling their environment and I can't imagine an ENFP to be this way. I may be wrong, but hey, that's only my oppinion.

    Not necessarily "domineering;" just influencing, and controlling. Type 8 is a very common enneatype for my own MBTI, but type 8 INTJs still don't have the same aggressive, over the top quality as, say, an ENTJ 8. They make their opinions known and definitely don't let people push them around, though. I can see ENFPs being somewhat that way, though I'm sure they're relatively rare.

    I don't see why not. granted, I don't exactly think it's common, but I feel like ENFPs are generally a much more assertive, capable type than most descriptions would have people believe (particularly once we've matured a bit and taken a healthy dosage of Te competence and organization). it's not uncommon for ENFPs (especially ENFP males) to bury their sensitivity and more "delicate" emotions and erupt angrily in response to a severe wrongdoing.

    that said, I think most of the ENFP 8w7s are actually 7w8s, most of the ENFP 7w8s are actually 7w6s and most of the ENFP 7w6s are actually 6w7s (this is not necessarily directed at you. I don't know enough about you to say). the assertive, acquisitive aspects of 7 are typically understated in most 7 descriptions, which make them sound more like party animal goofballs who would rather please their friends and avoid confrontation for the sake of a good time than fervently go after what they want.
    that said, 7w6 is typically pretty pleasant and amicable on the outside, but we're less weak and frivolous than we typically appear.

    I would imagine an ENFP 8 would be more similar to King David from the Bible, John Brown (the abolitionist) or Kamina from Gurren Lagann

    I should have added it despite my own doubts. But since 8s are considered to be more authoritarian and bossy and typically go along with ExTJ types I just can't imagine that combination.
    Btw, I know a ESTJ 8 girl and she is really worst of the worst! (Not to be generalizing)

    Not necessarily "domineering;" just influencing, and controlling.

    It's said in most descriptions that 8's basic desire is to control and lead others and since that collides with the ENFP's worldview which is kind of the "freedom for everyone" attitude (including me), ENFP 8s would probably not know how to behave or react to people in specific situatons.
    Of course a lot of those enneagram descriptions are biased and I can only speak for myself, not for other ENFPs, but I'm not sure if I want 8s in the ENFP club.
