Its been a while now, that Ive seriously been considering 8W7 for my enneagram type. The reasons are many. DRR labeled 8W7 as "the maverick" and I think that fits me perfectly. My insuburdination to authority and standing up to my teachers, etc my fear of getting a real job and being part of the work world for fear of being submitted to others, my ardent desire to depend on noone except people I trust very well(and who are those people I trust except those I know wont subordinate me?), my lack of fear in standing up to the "big dogs" both online and IRL, my tendency to always do "too much" and be "too much" my love of "strong" art etc. Basically I feel my deepest fear is submitting to others.
My best friend who is Fe ENFj and a 6W5, after telling him some of my stories about how I stood up to people on the street was shocked at how much guts I had. He told me hed never even think of saying some of the things I said to big black guys who tried to agress me(ie "go back to Africa", "you hit like a girl" "dumbass" etc). I cant stand seeing people get bullied and do nothing to stand up for themselves, or be manipulated by a boss or teacher.
In short, I stand outside the group, almost never conform, but not for fourish, fivish, or even cp sixish reasons. I dont conform because I FEEl stronger(not to say I am).
Any thoughts? Mature answers only please.
