i think of the way that chanaynay goes after nicodemus and that seems like more forceful behavior than i probably would engage in. i read once that 8-fixers take up space like they own it and 9s take up space almost apologetically. i come into new situations with a bit of trepidation. i'm afraid of stepping on toes and don't want to like rock any boats. for that reason, i tend to kind of ease my way into social situations in a way that i feel will be comfortable for both me and those receiving me. (people's first impressions of me are often that i'm 'shy and quiet'.) i definitely feel like chan has a more commanding energy. a less apologetic occupation of space. less concern for 'rocking the boat' with his presence, and more of a desire to come in and make his presence known.
it's a good thing, and i see it and envy it with 7s who have 8-fixes. because we share that same 7w6 ebullient energy, it looks similar when we give it. it's happy, it's positive, it's engaging. with an 8, you just give it more directly, without questioning if the time or situation is right. with a 9, i wait around and feel it out for a while to make sure i can give that energy in a way that 'fits' and doesn't disrupt any harmony.
also, lol at laundry causing depression. can i get an aaaa-men.
