Relationship between type 6 and type 8

The loyal and the leader

Katniss Everdeen (Hunger Games)
Tommy Shelby (Peaky Blinders)


6 has found trust in his protector, and 8 has found loyal support against the world that they agree, is very unfair. It is a very complementary relationship.
6 is attracted to 8’s self-confidence, power, protection, reassurance, honesty and reliability. 8 is attracted to 6’s generosity, sensitivity, devotion, affection and trust.
They each admire the other’s sense of honour, engagement, responsibility and reliability. 8 helps 6 to be braver, more audacious and more determined with his actions.
8 values the constructive comments that 6 can give him which can bring useful details to his synthetic approach.
They have all the necessary qualities to form a stable, solid and long-lasting relationship.

Points where to be careful

6 can sometimes see 8 as being too authoritarian, aggressive, intimidating, overprotective, conflicting and excessive.
8 can sometimes see 6 as being too indecisive, irrational, wary and paranoid.
If 6 is counterphobic, 8 can perceive 6 himself as being aggressive, rebellious and conflicting.
8 can become impatient about 6’s fears and trivialise them. If 8 becomes too domineering and intimidating, the counterphobic 6 can rebel to prove that he is neither weak nor dependant. If 6 is phobic, he will react differently and adopt a passive-aggressive attitude in order to avoid confrontation.
