    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

    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
