    Have you ever done an emmegram test
    I used to be an '8'
    Enneagram Type 8 - The Challenger

    Taking charge, because they don't want to be controlled
    enneatype8. People of this personality type are essentially unwilling to be controlled, either by others or by their circumstances; they fully intend to be masters of their fate. Eights are strong willed, decisive, practical, tough minded and energetic. They also tend to be domineering; their unwillingness to be controlled by others frequently manifests in the need to control others instead. When healthy, this tendency is kept under check, but the tendency is always there, nevertheless, and can assume a central role in the Eight's interpersonal relationships.
    Eights generally have powerful instincts and strong physical appetites which they indulge without feelings of shame or guilt. They want a lot out of life and feel fully prepared to go out and get it. They need to be financially independent and often have a hard time working for anyone. This sometimes necessitates that the Eight opt out of the system entirely, assuming something of an outlaw mentality. Most Eights however, find a way to be financially independent while making their peace with society, but they always retain an uneasy association with any hierarchical relationship that sees the Eight in any position other than the top position.
    Eights have a hard time lowering their defenses in intimate relationships. Intimacy involves emotional vulnerability and such vulnerability is one of the Eight's deepest fears. Betrayal of any sort is absolutely intolerable and can provoke a powerful response on the part of the violated Eight. Intimate relationships are frequently the arena in which an Eight's control issues are most obviously played out and questions of trust assume a pivotal position. Eights often have a sentimental side that they don't even show to their intimates, such is their fear of vulnerability. But, while trust does not come easily to an Eight, when an Eight does take someone into the inner sanctum, they find a steadfast ally and stalwart friend. The Eight's powerful protective instincts are called into play when it comes to the defense of family and friends, and Eights are frequently generous to a fault in providing for those under their care.
    Eights are prone to anger. When severely provoked, or when the personality is unbalanced, bouts of anger can turn into rages. Unhealthy Eights are frankly agressive and when pushed, can resort to violence. Such Eights enjoy intimidating others whom they see as "weak" and feel little compunction about walking over anyone who stands in their way. They can be crude, brutal and dangerous.
    Female Eights are far more likely to mistype than male Eights, as many of the traits typical to the type Eight personality have been discouraged in females. For the most part, however, it is other types who mistake themselves for Eights. This is especially common in male counterphobic Sixeswho fail to recognize that their agression is a cover for a very deep seated anxiety. Sevens too, are prone to mistype as Eights, but Sevens lack the intensity of focus typical of the type Eight, and while both Sevens and Eights have high energy personalities, Eights have a physically based energy whereas the Seven's energetic pattern has a nervous, mental quality to it.
    NOW, i;ve shifted into a 3W2
    Enneagram Type 3 - The Achiever

    Focused on the presentation of success, to attain validation
    People of this personality type need to be validated in order to feel worthy;
    they pursue success and want to be admired.
    They are frequently hard working, competetive and are highly focused in the pursuit of their goals,
    whether their goal is to be the most successful salesman in the company or the "sexiest" woman
    in their social circle.
    They are often "self-made" and usually find some area in which they can excel
    and thus find the external approbation which they so desperately need.
    Threes are socially competent, often extroverted, and sometimes charismatic.
    They know how to present themselves, are self-confident, practical, and driven.
    Threes have a lot of energy and often seem to embody a kind of zest for life
    that others find contagious.
    They are good networkers who know how to rise through the ranks.
    But, while Threes do tend to succeed in whatever realm they focus their energies,
    they are often secretly afraid of being or becoming "losers."
    Threes can sometimes find intimacy difficult.
    Their need to be validated for their image often hides a deep sense of shame
    about who they really are, a shame they unconsciously fear will be unmasked
    if another gets too close.
    Threes are often generous and likable, but are difficult to really know.

    When unhealthy, their narcissism takes an ugly turn and they can become cold blooded
    and ruthless in the pursuit of their goals.

    Because it is central to the type Three fixation to require external validation, Threes often,
    consciously and unconsciously, attempt to embody the image of success that is promoted
    by their culture.

    Threes get in trouble when they confuse true happiness, which depends on inner states,
    with the image of happiness which society has promoted.

    If a Three has a "good" job and an "attractive" mate, she might be willing,
    through an act of self-deception which is also self-betrayal, to ignore the inner promptings
    which tell her that neither her job, nor her mate are fulfilling her deeper needs.

    Even the most "successful" Threes, who generally appear quite happy,
    often hide a deeply felt sense of meaninglessness.

    The attainment of the image never quite satisfies.

    Threes can sometimes mistype themselves when they mistake the more superficial features
    of their personalities as indicators of their type.

    So, for instance, an intellectual Three might mistype as a Five; a Three who is devoted to her role as mother might think she is a Two; a Three in a leadership position might mistype as an Eight and so on.

    Regardless of the manifestation however, the core of the type Three fixation is the deep need
    for external validation.

    and, The Wing of Two
    Enneagram Type 2 - The Helper

    Helpers who need to be needed
    enneatype2. People of this personality type essentially feel that they are worthy insofar as they are helpful to others. Love is their highest ideal. Selflessness is their duty.

    Giving to others is their reason for being. Involved, socially aware, usually extroverted, Twos are the type of people who remember everyone's birthday and who go the extra mile to help out a co-worker, spouse or friend in need.

    Twos are warm, emotional people who care a great deal about their personal relationships, devote an enormous amount of energy to them, and who expect to be appreciated for their efforts.

    They are practical people who thrive in the helping professions and who know how to make a home comfortable and inviting. Helping others makes Twos feel good about themselves; being needed makes them feel important; being selfless, makes Twos feel virtuous.

    Much of a Two's self-image revolves around these issues, and any threat to that self-image is scarcely tolerated. Twos are thoroughly convinced of their selflessness, and it is true that they are frequently genuinely helpful and concerned about others. It is equally true, however, that Twos require appreciation; they need to be needed. Their love is not entirely without ulterior motive.

    Twos often develop a sense of entitlement when it comes to the people closest to them.

    Because they have extended themselves for others, they begin to feel that gratitude is owed to them.

    They can become intrusive and demanding if their often unacknowledged emotional needs go unmet.

    They can be bossy and manipulative, feeling entirely justified in being so,
    because they "have earned the right" and their intentions are good.

    The darkest side of the type Two fixation appears when the Two begins to feel that they will never receive the love they deserve for all of their efforts. Under such circumstances, they can become hysterical, irrational and even abusive.

    Because Twos are generally helping others meet their needs, they can forget to take care of their own.

    This can lead to physical burnout, emotional exhaustion and emotional volatility.

    Twos need to learn that they can only be of true service to others if they are healthy, balanced and centered in themselves.
    Twos can mistype themselves if they are not in an obvious helper role in their professional lives;
    they might not recognize the extent of their involvement in assisting others.

    This is especially true for male Twos, who have not received the same social rewards for helping as female Twos receive. Male Twos frequently mistype as Ones or Threes, the wings of type Two.

    Females, of all types, are bound to recognize some of the dynamics of type Two in their personalities, as such qualities have been socially reinforced.

    Female Nines, for instance, are especially prone to mistyping as Twos, particularly if they are the mothers of small children. But Nines are self-effacing and humble;

    Twos are proud and have a strong sense of their own worth.

    NOW, something else to consider, sure see how this flows along with 'micheal teachings'

    It would seem that the goal of Dominance is asociated with Power
    there used to be this amazing woman hanging around named "ULLA"
    i think she was working on a project called:
    Michael Student Database Study report which she may have called
    The Seven (7) Modes, however, i'll bet Troy has great things on the library on that
    The Mode of Power,and, the goal of domiance, sometimes, does NOT make your life a lot of fun !!!

    Anyway, always remember...

    imagine when we all sing together, it will be SUM THiNG"
