Instinctual Stacking: So/Sp
• The above typing applies the best to the Paragon version. The more Renegade, the closer Commander Shepard comes to being an unhealthy 8w7 Sx/So.
• Paragon Shepard depicts the healthiest Level of Type 8 around the end of Mass Effect 3 (quoting from Personality Types: Using the Enneagram for Self-Discovery): “At their best, healthy Eights are big-hearted, compassionate people who are able to surrender their own willfulness to serve something greater than their own ambitions. They become truly selfless: not in a passive, ineffectual way – they retain all of their tremendous energy and vitality – but in the sense of acting utterly without self-interest. Healthy Eights see exactly what needs to be done for the greater good, and do it. […] Very healthy Eights possess not only physical courage but moral courage, putting themselves on the line for what they believe in. Thus, they may be thought of as heroes whom others look up to and deeply respect.”
