    They are sensuous, earthly, worldly characters who can be very entertaining and who display a light-hearted lack of seriousness—though when it comes to finding security through making money and establishing a network of associates, they display keen self-interest

    having close relationships is something they view as an investment, like putting money in the bank—you always have someone you can call on if you need some specific kind of help. For that reason they tend to be very active in the groups they join and the networks they are affiliated with

    Self-Preservation Sevens may experience less difficulty than other Sevens with making commitments
    aurikihar citeretfor 22 dage siden
    The Self-Preservation Seven finds security through a gluttonous search for pleasure, satisfying opportunities, and cultivating a network of allies. The Social Seven expresses a kind of anti-gluttony by being of service to others. The Sexual Seven channels gluttony into an idealistic search for the ultimate relationship and the best imaginable experiences

    When the drive for self-preservation dominates, we see a Seven character whose gluttony motivates him to find security and opportunities for well-being in a close network of family members, friends, and associates. When the social instinct is prominent, we see a Social Seven who goes against gluttony by sacrificing his own needs for the good of others. And when the drive for sexual or one-to-one connection dominates, the Seven character is expressed through an exceedingly enthusiastic personality whose gluttony for pleasurable experiences creates a tendency to view reality in an extremely positive way

    the Self-Preservation Seven is not so much idealistic as they are cynically distrustful

    The Self-Preservation subtype is more earthy and sensuous—more gluttonous in the literal sense of the word

    Self-Preservation Sevens cultivate a sense of being kind and generous—they like to feel that everyone depends on them

    three main fixations of the Self-Preservation Sevens are strategy, rebellion, and isolation, though it may be hard to see these characters as isolated because they tend to be very popular. But their strategic and mental nature, together with the prominence of their self-interest, can isolate them from others at a deeper level

    The dominant traits of the Self-Preservation Seven subtype stand out as a love of pleasure and a self-interested focus on getting what they need to feel secure. In seeking security, however, they can often confuse desires with needs

    These Sevens are very practical, good at networking, and skilled at getting what they want and finding a good deal; they tend to be opportunistic, self-interested, pragmatic, calculating, and clever. They readily recognize opportunities for creating an advantage for themselves. In this way, Naranjo explains, gluttony expresses itself in the Self-Preservation Seven in an excessive concern with making a good deal at every opportunity

    Self-Preservation Sevens express gluttony through the formation of alliances. They typically collect around them a kind of family network, in the sense of banding together with trusted others and creating a good “mafia” or partisan group through which they can get their needs met. They rely mostly on those they trust. These Sevens create a kind of surrogate family of people they value—a family in which they typically occupy a privileged position

    By reincorporating Type Two qualities, Eights can consciously remind themselves that it’s okay to care about what other people think and feel about you; and that it’s important to value your needs for love, understanding, affection, and acceptance

    Without awareness around the move to Type Two, Eights can act out the Two habits of “giving to get” and seducing through charm and helpfulness. They may compulsively and expansively do things for others, give advice, or express physical affection as a way of forging connections

    The path of growth for Type Eights calls for them to reclaim their ability to actively open up to their empathy for others and their need to be appreciated

    the Eight move to Five may represent an extreme response to an intense experience of stress, as it can be a mode of retreat that Eights are driven to when their normal reliance on power and action has failed. To the normally expressive Eight, the experience of Five may feel like a bunker where they take shelter when threatened or when conditions have dealt them a severe setback

    I am absolutely charismatic and can convincingly bring others toward me without appearing to want adulation

    I seem to “take care” of those around me. My sexual instinct can make this look like I am dominating or controlling the people around me.

    They may look like Sexual Fours in that both types can be angry, emotional, and demanding, but Sexual Eights distinguish themselves in their deeply confident (or overconfident) manner in contrast with the Sexual Fours’ sense of inner deficiency
