If you can’t fly, then run.
If you can’t run, then walk.
If you can’t walk, then crawl.
But whatever you do, keep moving forward.
— Martin Luther King, Jr., Type 8

Romantically, Eights



  • Eights do not do well when they see any type of injustice.

  • They are confused when others do not assertively deal with issues.

  • They expect others to take responsibility for their own behavior.

  • An Eight can often be misunderstood with their direct and blunt communication skills.

  • They expect everyone to be straightforward and honest in their communication method.

  • Being betrayed and blindsided is a total turnoff to the Eight

  • Eights are generous and loyal friends.

  • They stand up for and fiercely protect those that they care for, the weak and those who have injustices.

  • In their unhealthy state, they are very quick to anger and become demanding.

  • Once they reach the unhealthy state of the Eight, they refuse to see how they are hurting others and become insensitive.

  • Get along with an Eight by acknowledging, but not flattering.

  • If an Eight is silent they probably aren’t upset with you. They will let you know if they are!

  • Eights may mistake tenderness for manipulation

  • Exercising helps to use up some of their excessive energy

  • Be secure and strong in what you think and believe. Eights love intensity.

  • Vulnerable Eights have very intense emotions.
