    Default Type 6 and Type 8 Relationship

    Type 8's are probably one of my favored type for romantic relationship beside 3's. I understand type 3's very well but the 8's can be a mystery to me at times and I was wondering how to possibly navigate relationships with type 8 easier and gain their trust. Type 8's tend to end up with either type 2's or 6's for long term partners. Type 2 and 8 relationship I have often been discussed but not 8 and 6.

    I know 8 and 6 can be rocky for the first little bit but when trust is gained, I hear it is one of the most solid relationships ever. Just want other thoughts on this kind of pairing too.

    I’m a 2 and I get on quite well with the intense 1 and 8s
    -
    Dual type (as per tcaudilllg)
    Enneagram 5 (wings either 4 or 6)?


    I'm constantly looking to align the real with the ideal.I've been more oriented toward being overly idealistic by expecting the real to match the ideal. My thinking side is dominent. The result is that sometimes I can be overly impersonal or self-centered in my approach, not being understanding of others in the process and simply thinking "you should do this" or "everyone should follor this rule"..."regardless of how they feel or where they're coming from"which just isn't a good attitude to have. It is a way, though, to give oneself an artificial sense of self-justification. LSE

    Assuming I'm typed correctly finally, which is possible, since Enneagram does a horrible job at covering counterphobic 6's...I have a love/hate thing with 8s. A lot of shared values, but sometimes butt heads over "RESPECT MUH AUTONOMY" issues.



    Funny enough, 8s usually actually like that, as they respect those who share their values of standing up for themselves/their independence, and they like those who challenge them.

    It can make for some pretty intense sexual tension if you're both into power dynamics in bed. I have a feeling I'm not the only counterphobic 6 who is a "bratty sub"...outside of the bedroom, though, good luck with that sub part.

    For me, 6s anxiety can be attractive in some people and incredibly annoying in others. For the most part, I like their company. I think 6s may like 8s because they are in their head worrying over some problem, 8s don't like to think and ruminate and they want to shake them out of this state and bring 6s to action.

    I knew a 6 who was up for a promotion to a new position. They had a hard time seeing themselves in the role, suffered from imposter syndrome badly. An 8 would be stupid enough to take a leadership role just because. 8s don't always make the best leaders, but they usually end up being the leader for this reason.
