Relationship between type 7 and type 8

The epicurean and the leader

Phoebe Buffay (Friends)
Tommy Shelby (Peaky Blinders)


7 is attracted to 8’s intensity, energy passion, autonomy, honour and leadership.
8 is attracted to 7’s optimism, lightness, joie de vivre and serenity.
Both are sensual, direct, full of energy, have a strong attachment to freedom and are open to new experiences.
Both are independent, confident and have non-conventional minds that sometimes like to go over the limit.

Points where to be careful

They can both be too excessive in their way of living, selfish, insulting and headstrong.
8 needs a loyal partner who he can trust. 7 can struggle to put up with 8’s authority.
7 may see 8 as being too dominating, authoritative, aggressive, impatient, insensitive and conflicting.
8 can see 7 as being too neglectful of the relationship, not very trustworthy, and running away from problems.
