    Eli in The Book of Eli. He appears to be at health level 4 with bits of 3, so overall, a relatively solid example of a stable 8.

    Haven't seen that movie in years. But I remember he always seemed in control without coming off like a douche.

    Exactly! 8s at level 5 get proud and boastful, egocentric and expansive. Big difference.

    I dated an 8 who spent most of his time at level 5.

    It's cool that you're into the levels; not many people seem to have looked at those. Still think I'm a 6 or 9?

    I'd say 6 Sp/So because head energy and a disarming pleasantness, but you seem very non-reactive and your photos look 9 to me.

    I don't think anyone was trying to fight with me. I also don't think Eights mistake themselves for Sixes; I think people who list celebrities of each type mistake Eights for Sixes.

    As I wrote earlier, 8s are prone to denial of vulnerability, but the 'weakness' of this type is that ultimately, there is some level to which you cannot achieve this without the (neighboring) attitude of E9, which involves a kind of numbing of the self (basically, an "I don't really care/I don't really exist anyway" attitude). That is, the more one is conscious

    Denying vulnerability is not the same as actually being powerful enough to warrant the denial -- there are many 'dumb' versions of each type, and the dumber versions of 8 vastly underestimate what they have to lose. The bubble can burst on an 8, which is when they're actually proven to be powerless against their will, and that is when they disintegrate to 5.


    A 6 CP does tend to 'deny' vulnerability but more in the sense of being on guard at all times or proving to themselves they can overcome danger. An 8 tends not to see such a need, but again, this says nothing as to who is actually RIGHT -- in the end, being powerful/not is independent of type.

    Illustrated with Pokemon, Mew is far from an 8, but could destroy many who are probably 8s. It probably doesn't think about doing so all that often.
