I don't agree with this. I believe Sixes are unpredictable due to the oscillation between polar opposites that can take place within a Six. Eights can be very strategic in their reactions and don't just react on autopilot and/or pre-programmed reactions. If you are aware of Enneatypes, then you will recognize that Sixes have their pre-programmed irritation buttons for reactivity in the same manner as Eights.Also, I think this is why the 6 is more unpredictable. I may or may not react to something X way depending on a ton of factors. Whereas, for 8s it seems that you know what will irritate them or at least exactly how they will react to it.
I don't think this necessarily true especially in Sixes who exhibit CP traits. [/quote]Originally Posted by abioticprime
On another note, from my understanding Eights don't fight to death in general and/or on all issues. From what I have read, it is a fight to the death on issues that are important to an Eight which I also happen to identify with in my own personal life.
