Lately, I've been struggling with balancing my assertiveness and need for control (8w7) with maintaining healthy relationships. My intensity often comes off as domineering, and while I thrive on challenges, it can alienate those close to me. How do I channel my energy positively without overwhelming others? Any tips on softening my approach while staying true to myself? Looking for practical advice from fellow 8w7s or anyone who understands this dynamic. Thanks!

Curious about the experiences of fellow 8w7s! How do you balance the assertiveness and intensity of Type 8 with the adventurous, spontaneous nature of the 7 wing? Do you find that your 7 wing helps you stay optimistic and avoid burnout, or does it sometimes lead to impulsive decisions? Also, how do you manage relationships when your strong will clashes with others' needs? Would love to hear your strategies for harnessing both sides effectively. 🌟 #Enneagram #8w7 #SelfGrowth

Lately, balancing my assertive nature and deep-seated desire for fun has been tricky. As an 8w7, I’m driven to take control of situations but can also feel restless and impatient when things slow down. My intense approach tends to intimidate others, making collaborative projects stressful and tense. Switching off my internal 'prove your strength' mode while staying spontaneous without derailing progress feels impossible. How do other 8w7s manage these contradictions and find harmony between confrontation and enthusiasm? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Recently discovered I'm an 8w7 and would love to hear from others of the same type & wing! 🌟 Do you feel like your 7 wing intensifies your need for excitement and novelty, even though Type 8 naturally values control and challenge? How do you balance this dynamic in your relationships or work environment? For instance, in high-stress situations, are you more likely to take charge impulsively (8) or seek a distraction (7)? Curious about any tips to better manage these conflicting drives—higher highs but also possibly more frequent burns. #Enneagram #Personality #SelfAwareness знакомств

Does anyone have experience being or dealing with an 8w7? 🌟 I'm trying to understand how the towering confidence and assertiveness of Type 8 blend with the fun-loving, adventurous spirit of a Seven wing. How do you find balance between going after big goals 🔥 and maintaining personal growth 😌? Do you think this pairing makes it harder to recognize new emotional needs given their high-energy approach? What strategies work best for responding constructively when faced with unexpected challenges or intense moments that trigger vulnerability? Thanks in advance! 🙂
