||Care for the Underdog
||"I can do. I'm powerful."
||Lust -- use of others as objects
||Aggression and impulse control.
Control of personal objects, space and people likely to influence the EIGHT'S
Excessive (to others) self-presentation -- too much, too loud.
Tendency to see things in extremes, people either strong or weak, fair
or unfair, with no middle ground; an automatic denial of other points of
view in favor of single "legitimate" opinion that supports the
Concern with justice and the protection of others.
||Personal emphasis on satisfactory survival.
Couple emphasis on possession/surrender.
Community emphasis on friendship.
||Realization of truth and justice in each moment's flow of reality.
Accepting one's personal weakness offers the possibility of integration.
