"What were you thinking?"
Andrew yelled at Mark.
Andrew may love to joke and play around as the class clown and constantly do silly things that at times get him into trouble, but he desires to protect others. He keeps his friends’ well-being and happiness at the forefront of his mind. That’s why he loves to be silly, he wants to make his friends laugh and keep them happy. He has decided in his young age to be courageous and join the military when he is old enough, but he is not sure which branch yet. He is always looking for ways to serve in a brave way. He is kind and generous and even helps the elderly when given the opportunity. Andrew helps out at his church and even sings out loud and enjoys helping in his Sunday school class. He is the first one to serve when he gets nothing in return. He doesn’t care about what he will get except the joy of being a blessing to others. When one of his friends is in trouble, he will put himself in the way to protect his friends to keep them safe. He always holds his mom’s hand while walking, but not because he is a kid but to keep her safe and show her respect and chivalry.
8 The Protector
The most basic desire of the Enneagram Type 8 is to protect themselves and remain in control of their own lives. They seek to defend themselves and others from injustice. Eights often tend to advocate for the underdog, as they work to protect those they feel are unable to protect themselves.
Protectors defend themselves by avoiding and denying vulnerability. They believe, somewhat subconsciously, that vulnerability will make them appear weak; therefore, they avoid it at all costs.
The basic fear of the Type 8 is that they might be controlled or hurt by others. They tend to avoid situations that make them feel helpless and stand up for themselves in all circumstances. When stressed, they may guard themselves more from others.
