As Gut Types

The key for 8s is to step back from their powerful personas and recognize they are protecting their own vulnerability by forcefully protecting others. Through accessing softer feelings toward themselves and others they become better leaders.
8s make great leaders, supervisors, protectors, straight talkers, and over-haulers because of their desire to protect others and the force of their big energy.
