Ehh, some of those traits are less E and P. but Sx doms are still at their core high-energy, stimulation seeking, and have a disregard for rules and structure.

- Can be one of the most devoted, big-hearted and loving types once they trust their partner
- Truly want to have a partnership of equality where they don’t feel the need to control and
possess
- Want to know everything about their partner – body, mind and soul; no secret is too sacred
- An honest fight/argument that brings out the truth allows Sexual 8s to feel closer to their
partner
- Can surrender control and be genuinely soft, vulnerable and tender with their partner once
they have won their partner’s loyalty and affections and have no fear of being betrayed
- Some Sexual 8s like a partner to be strong and direct, to stand his/her ground against the 8
- Other Sexual 8s like a more withdrawn type of partner that they can mold
- Are very protective of their partner
- Are charismatic, passionate and truthful
Negative/Depleting:
- Inner tension between wanting to connect with my partner on a deep level vs. needing to stay in control
- Tend to take charge of their partner’s life; want to possess him/her; feel the impulse to
command/boss
- For all their bravado, Sexual 8s actually have a deep fear of rejection which is why they
feel the need to possess and control their partner in the first place
- Tend to be lusty in love; can be competitive, impulsive and impatient too
- Like a good heated debate or argument every once in a while with their partner
- Get angry when their partner makes an important decision without consulting the 8 first
- Get angry when their partner withholds information from the 8 during a fight/argument.
- Sexual 8s want their partner to be direct and honest and not withhold their thoughts or
emotions from them
- Tend to be assertive and confrontational in relationships; prefer intense relationships to comfortable ones
- Can be extremely suspicious and fear betrayal
- Tend to demand loyalty and attention from their partner; can act parental or superior at
times
- Tend to question and test their partner’s motives and actions in the beginning stages of
the relationship
- Won’t let down their guard or relax their control in a relationship until they know it is safe to do so
- Can have a very difficult time letting go of a relationship once it is over
- Once they have fallen in love with their partner Sexual 8s can become codependent and/or jealous
- At worst, can completely control and dominate their partner and isolate him/her from other people
- At worst, can be abusive, vengeful, sadistic or even commit crimes of passion


I just have a lot of trouble seeing this as either E or P. I think they leave it ambiguous enough here for those to come into play, but the person I mentally fit into this mold just doesn't seem like they'd be more E than I or P than J in MBTI.
