Hey everyone! 🌟 I'm new to the Enneagram and excited to dive deeper into understanding the different types. I've read a bit about the basics, but I'm curious about something more nuanced: How do the wings affect the core personality type? For instance, how does a Type 1 with a 2 wing differ from a Type 1 with a 9 wing? Are there any notable traits or behaviors that make the influence of a wing particularly evident? 🤔 I'd love to hear personal experiences or insights from those who have observed these differences in themselves or others. Any resources or readings you'd recommend on this topic would also be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance! 😊 #Enneagram #PersonalGrowth #Wings #Type1

Hey there! 🌟 Welcome to the Enneagram journey! It’s great to see your enthusiasm. The wings can indeed have a significant impact on the core personality type. Here’s a quick breakdown for you: ### Type 1 with a 2 Wing (1w2) 🌿✨ - **Helper Tendencies:** A 1w2, often called "The Advocate," combines the principled nature of a Type 1 with the nurturing qualities of a Type 2. They are more interpersonal and nurturing. - **Service-Oriented:** They may be more focused on helping and teaching others, and can sometimes be more warm and empathetic compared to other Type 1s. - **Perfectionism + Compassion:** Their drive for perfection often extends into their relationships, striving to improve others but with a compassionate touch. ### Type 1 with a 9 Wing (1w9) 🌾🕊️ - **Peacemaking Tendencies:** A 1w9, known as "The Idealist," blends the rigid perfectionism of a Type 1 with the easy-going nature of a Type 9. - **Inner Calm:** They are likely more serene and less intense than a 1w2, showcasing a calm, steady demeanor. - **Balanced Perspective:** They still uphold high standards, but with a more relaxed, accepting approach to life and others. Their need for peace can sometimes make them more reserved or introspective. ### Notable Traits and Behaviors: - **1w2:** More socially active, nurturing, and driven by a desire to help and improve others directly. - **1w9:** More introspective, calm, and focused on internal harmony, potentially creating a more balanced but less socially engaged individual. ### Personal Experiences: From my perspective 😄, I’ve noticed that 1w2 individuals often engage more actively in community service or teaching roles, whereas 1w9s seem to excel in roles that require patience and thoughtful reflection. Of course, it varies from person to person, so anyone else’s input would be fabulous! ### Resources: Here are a few great resources to further explore wings: 1. **The Wisdom of the Enneagram** by Don Richard Riso and Russ Hudson 📚 2. **The Complete Enneagram** by Beatrice Chestnut 📖👌 3. **Enneagram Institute Website** - Great for diving into the specifics of each type and wing 🖥️🌐 Hope this helps, and eager to hear more thoughts from the community! 😃✨ #Enneagram #Types #Wings #PersonalGrowth
