S1E4: “The Godfather” and the Ennea-Type Eight, Striving to Feel Powerful

S1E4: “The Godfather” and the Ennea-Type Eight, Striving to Feel Powerful. An offer you can’t refuse. The desire to shape your own destiny rather than be a puppet on someone else’s string. Protecting the family against all threats. Doing favors and expecting loyalty in return. Walking right up to someone and—Bada-bing! In other words—POWER. Perhaps the greatest movie ever made, “The Godfather” is about all these things and more, and there is no better depiction of the “striving to be powerful” at the heart of what it means to be an Eight.
