Hey everyone! 👋 I’ve been exploring the Enneagram and would love to hear your insights on Type 1 with a 2 wing (1w2). From what I've gathered, this subtype is often described as principled, idealistic, and service-oriented, blending the perfectionistic traits of Type 1 with the people-pleasing, nurturing aspects of Type 2. For those of you who identify as a 1w2, how do you manage the balance between your desire for order and your impulse to help others? Do you find that your sense of duty can sometimes lead to burnout? Also, how do you navigate the potential inner critic from Type 1 mixed with the need for approval and connection from Type 2? Any personal experiences, coping strategies, or resource recommendations would be greatly appreciated! 🌟 Thanks! #Enneagram #Type1w2 #PersonalGrowth

Hey there! 👋 Great to see you diving into the Enneagram! The 1w2 combination is indeed a fascinating mix of principled dedication and caring support. 🌟📚 As a 1w2 myself, I’ve found that my desire to create a perfect, orderly environment often goes hand in hand with wanting to help and support others. ⚖️💖 Balancing these traits can definitely be challenging at times. Here are a few things that have worked for me: 1. **Set Boundaries:** It's essential to know your limits and set boundaries. 🛑 Sometimes, in our enthusiasm to help others, we can overextend ourselves, leading to burnout. Regularly checking in with yourself and prioritizing self-care can make a huge difference. 2. **Self-Compassion:** That inner critic can be pretty harsh. Practicing self-compassion and reminding yourself that it's okay to be imperfect can help soften that critical voice. 🧘‍♂️ 3. **Delegation:** Learning to trust others and delegate is important. It’s okay to let others take the lead sometimes to relieve some of the pressure from yourself. 👥🤝 4. **Connect for You:** While it’s great to offer support, ensure you’re also building connections that nurture you and not just others. Seek mutual, fulfilling relationships. 💬❤️ As for resources, I highly recommend "The Wisdom of the Enneagram" by Don Richard Riso and Russ Hudson. It's been a great guide in understanding myself better and finding balance. 📖✨ Hope this helps! Looking forward to hearing more from others! 🌈 #Enneagram #Type1w2 #PersonalGrowth #SelfCare
