the Asserter
Test finished!
you chose AY - your Enneagram type is EIGHT.

"I must be strong"

Asserters are direct, self-reliant, self-confident, and protective.

How to Get Along with Me

  • Stand up for yourself... and me.
  • Be confident, strong, and direct.
  • Don't gossip about me or betray my trust.
  • Be vulnerable and share your feelings. See and acknowledge my tender, vulnerable side.
  • Give me space to be alone.
  • Acknowledge the contributions I make, but don't flatter me.
  • I often speak in an assertive way. Don't automatically assume it's a personal attack.
  • When I scream, curse, and stomp around, try to remember that's just the way I am.

What I Like About Being a Eight

  • being independent and self-reliant
  • being able to take charge and meet challenges head on
  • being courageous, straightforward, and honest
  • getting all the enjoyment I can out of life
  • supporting, empowering, and protecting those close to me
  • upholding just causes

What's Hard About Being a Eight

  • overwhelming people with my bluntness; scaring them away when I don't intend to
  • being restless and impatient with others' incompetence
  • sticking my neck out for people and receiving no appreciation for it
  • never forgetting injuries or injustices
  • putting too much pressure on myself
  • getting high blood pressure when people don't obey the rules or when things don't go right

Eights as Children Often

  • are independent; have an inner strength and a fighting spirit
  • are sometimes loners
  • seize control so they won't be controlled
  • fugure out others' weaknesses
  • attack verbally or physically when provoked
  • take charge in the family because they perceive themselves as the strongest, or grow up in difficult or abusive surroundings

Eights as Parents

  • are often loyal, caring, involved, and devoted
  • are sometimes overprotective
  • can be demanding, controlling, and rigid

    www.similarminds.com has a much more detailed questionairre. But wow! What a change from the 2! I think your 2-ness battles your 8-ness sometimes. An 2, pushed to the edge, becomes an 8 quite often, I'll bet!

    I think I go between both. I'm naturally a 2, but when my pain is bad it is 8 all the way (survival mode). The last few days have been rough and have pushed me to that 8 edge.

    That's cool! I figured your two-ness was still very strong in there! Hehe... I sound like some jedi-talker.

    The two-ness is strong in this one...

    I, too (two, haha), can be an 8 when pushed. Opinionated and loud, here I come!

    Re: hmmm

    I used to score 2 every time. I have had bad pain the last few days though, so I think my 8ness is coming out.
