042: Practicing Vulnerability as an Enneagram 8, feat. David Gungor
Enneagram Eights are called The Challenger for a good reason. Eights don’t like to feel controlled and avoid any appearance of vulnerability. They are naturally confrontational and their combative energy can feel intimidating to others. But what feels like intimidation to others actually feels like connection to an Eight. Eights express their anger freely, are fueled by high levels of stimulation, and react very strongly against challenging injustices. And, as you’ll hear from our guest, David Gungor, the “circle of trust” is small but tight. So what does it sound like when an Eight acknowledges their weakness or vulnerability? What does it look like when you break through that tough exterior?
Listen as David Gungor shares his struggle in determining his type, how he embrace his “chaotic intentionality,” and what it means to need others to “get out of his face.”
