    The Eight, like all Enneagram types, has both positive and negative traits. As with all types, the positive traits manifest themselves when the type is healthy, and the negative traits become more evident as the type becomes more unhealthy.

    The Machintruc, like all dry excrements, has both positive and negative traits. As with all uninteresting shit, the positive traits manifest themselves when you can't smell it anymore, and the negative traits become more evident as it continues to sit in the hot sun.

    Hey you're an Eight too. Be careful. Someone might hold it against you.

    See, I'm not sure that he is. He may be, but I just don't know. We can't see him on cam ever, because he's never on.

    Ahh, I s'pose he has more in common with Fabio than with me.

    I definitely don't think he has more in common with Fabio than with you. He and I talk a fair bit and that's just my opinion based on my experience. :tongue:

    But Eights' positive traits already exist in other types. For example :

    * Threes and Sevens are as energetic as Eights, while being more friendly.
    * Fours and Sixes are as compelling as Eights, while being more friendly.

    So why do we need Eights ? We don't need Eights. Eights are just useless!

    Default Eights and laziness

    Despite their energy and vigor, Eights often act in a lazy manner, more often than Threes and Sevens do. Not because of energy lacking, but due to low stress tolerance.

    I suspect a wing difference here. With 8w9's acting more lazily then 8w7's.
