Time for the Enneagram number of people
like Martin Luther King, Jr., Julius Caesar and Toni Morrison. The Enneagram
Eight. No I’m not doing that. Uh-uh no way. Nope. Big giant, big giant
N O. Not happening. Timmy said what to you? What’s his
address? I’m gonna go over there right now and give him a piece of my mind.
What’s his address? Do you know his address? Give me his address. Here’s what
you need to do. If you follow my plan exactly, it’s all gonna work out the
right way. Promise. In this video we’re gonna be talking all about Enneagram
Eight, aka the Challenger. If you don’t know how to find your Enneagram number,
don’t worry. I’ve made a quick and simple guide to finding your number and linked
it in a card right here. Now let’s get onto the video but before we do my name
is Abbey Howe and I’m here to help you discover you so make sure to subscribe
for new videos every week. All right! Enneagram eight time! I know a pair of
eights who are actually married to each other. They are always pushing each other
to do better. They don’t half-ass anything and they
actually have adopted three amazing kids! At their best healthy eights are amazing
friends and partners. They’re champions of those who are less fortunate. They’re
able to lead and follow when appropriate. Enneagram eights approach the world with
courage and resourcefulness. That said, there are also some very annoying things
about the Enneagram eight so in this video I’m gonna be sharing with you
seven annoying things that Enneagram eights do and say. But keep in mind this
is all in good fun! We love Enneagram eights. I just want to explore the Enneagram in a funny light-hearted way. Number one. The Enneagram eight’s core
weakness is lust. Don’t don’t look at me that way. It’s not a sexual thing at all.
It means that they greatly lust after intensity. They want fire and they want
zest and if they can’t find that they’re gonna create it just to liven things up
a little bit. And also, one thing to note, eights crave conflict because it creates
an intimacy for them, so just keep that in mind with the eights in your life. Eating a salad?
It’s a Caesar. I just don’t understand why people choose to eat salads, like,
they are the most boring food in the whole world. It’s like we as women have
decided that we’re gonna eat salads because that’s what’s skinny pretty
women do, just eat these like boring ass salads but it’s like? There’s so many
other equally healthy things that you could be eating right now that aren’t
salads but are so healthy for your body but like actually taste good?
What, what do you have to say about that? Number two. Enneagram eights
are afraid of being controlled and harmed by others. So they tend to
dominate their environment and make sure that they’re not gonna be harmed by
anyone else. Hey, I thought this outfit would look really good on you for the
party tonight. I’m not wearing that. I choose what I wear. I’m wearing this. You can’t
wear that. It”s a dinner party and they’re serving quail. Well I’m bringing
my own bird. Turkey. You’re bringing a turkey? A whole turkey! Number three. When
things go wrong unhealthy eights can be quick to blame other people rather than
taking responsibility for their own actions. Often an eight’s first impulse is
to deny that they had any kind of negative effect on other people because
they see themselves as unbelievably honest, and they always do the right
thing, and they couldn’t possibly have done anything wrong. Unhealthy eights
always want to be in control and saying to somebody – I messed up, I am so sorry –
takes away some of that control. You just hit my car. No your car is like way too
big and bulky, something went seriously wrong at the factory where they made
that thing. There’s a huge scratch. Right there where you hit it. Maybe you should learn
how to park. What? I watched you hit my car. You’re so sensitive! Number four.
When Enneagram 8 gets super stressed out, they can move towards the unhealthy
traits of an Enneagram 5. This means that they withdraw from life and their
responsibilities. They don’t trust anyone and they stop taking care of themselves.
I haven’t slept in 3 days. Number five. In the gut triad Enneagram
eights are the most outwardly expressive of their dominant trait of
anger. This means that when eights feel that building up of anger inside of them
they don’t press it down they immediately, boom, it comes out! This can
look and feel very aggressive to other types on the Enneagram. So if the eight
isn’t careful with how they handle confrontation and conflict it can lead
to the disintegration of relationships. You lied to me. I thought we were doing
Keto together for the whole month and I come to find out you’ve been eating
Oreos on the side? Why are you freaking out? It’s just a couple of cookies. I’m
pissed because you made a commitment and then you went back on it and now this
entire friendship is totally ruined! It was double stuffed Oreos! I couldn’t resist!
Double stuffed? Double betrayed! How could you? This friendship is over. I’m gonna eat these almonds alone.
Number six. Eights can struggle with dualistic black and white thinking.
There’s no such thing as nuance and they are always right.
You’re 1,000% wrong. This country is ruined if we have another four years
with this president. I’m sorry but I can’t get over the whole double stuffed
Oreos thing. You can’t eat a couple of Oreos and then say that you’re still Keto.
It is all or nothing. And finally, number seven. Unhealthy eights have this very
strong desire to be in control which means that they want to lead everything.
They really struggle with being a follower and that means that they can
often challenge authority and boss people around when they’re not in the
authority to do that. Actually why don’t you reach out to the PR agency to see
what kind of strategy they’d be willing to do and Daniel if you wouldn’t mind
starting the pitch deck for the Johnson team? Actually I would mind. Ashley don’t
be wishy-washy with the agency, okay? Just go right up to them and tell them
exactly what kind of strategy we know works! And Daniel don’t even bother doing
the pitch deck because I already sent it two weeks ago because I knew we were
gonna be late getting it together and they’ve already accepted it and I’ve
already started working on the marketing campaign, so. Any questions?
Great! Have a great day everybody, I’m gonna go back to work.
If you’re an Enneagram eight I’m sure you’re already typing a comment telling
me that either I did something right or I did something very wrong. So if I said
something that misrepresented you please let me know. That’s one thing I’m just
