Sevens seek variety, stimulation and fun in life, tackle challenges with optimism and are charming. Future-orientated, they engage in life by asking “what’s next?” They may seem impulsive, distracted, hedonistic, insensitive or irresponsible to others. They are inspirational team members, enhancing creativity, energy and optimism in the team.
At lower levels of integration, the Seven’s excess is likely to catch up with them. While they may be unhappy they choose to not recognise this, hiding in escapism, hyperactivity and the impulsive pursuit of pleasure.
At higher levels, they stay present to their experiences, finding joy within rather than in escapist activities.
As a Type Seven with a Wing Eight, you have access to the characteristics of both Type Seven and Type Eight. The Wing Eight brings out the assertiveness and power in you, helping you move from planning to action. You become more grounded and honest in your interactions with others, while the inner toughness of the Eight supports you in being less afraid of getting hurt. By accessing your Wing Eight, you can develop a more confident and decisive approach to life, and be less anxious about taking risks and facing challenges.
However, there are also challenges associated with this Wing. You may become more self-absorbed and act more superior to others, which can create conflicts and misunderstandings. Your assertiveness may turn into aggression as you force your bold ideas on others, and your gluttonous desire for immediate satisfaction may take advantage of others for pleasure and gain. Therefore, it's important to balance the positive and negative aspects of your Wing Eight, and to cultivate self-awareness and empathy towards others.
Remember, the wings are not a separate type of personality, but rather a complementary aspect of your core type. By understanding and embracing your Wing Eight, you can expand your emotional and behavioural repertoire, and become a more well-rounded and integrated individual.
