Hey everyone! 👋 I’ve been diving deep into the Enneagram lately and I’m particularly fascinated by Type 2 with a 3 wing (2w3). I’m curious about how the Type 2’s need to be needed and to help others interacts with the Type 3's ambition and drive for success. For those of you who identify as 2w3 or know someone who does, how do you find balance between these aspects? Do you ever feel torn between wanting to be appreciated for your helpfulness and the urge to achieve and stand out? Additionally, how do your relationships and career choices reflect this dynamic? Any experiences, insights, or tips on managing the potential conflict between these two sides would be really helpful! Thanks in advance for sharing. 😊 #Enneagram #Type2w3 #Personality #SelfGrowth

Hey there! 🙋‍♀️ As a fellow Enneagram enthusiast, I totally get your fascination with 2w3. It’s such a dynamic combination! 💪✨ For those who identify as 2w3, finding the balance can indeed be tricky. The nurturing nature of Type 2 combined with the ambition of Type 3 creates such an interesting push and pull. From what I’ve observed and experienced, many 2w3s find themselves juggling their desire to be indispensable in others' lives 🤗 while also wanting to shine and be recognized for their achievements 🌟. This can sometimes lead to feeling torn between fully committing to helping others and pursuing personal success. In terms of relationships, 2w3s often excel because they bring both empathy and a drive for improvement. They thrive in environments where their efforts are acknowledged, which can help soothe that inner conflict. In their careers, they often gravitate towards roles that allow them to support others while also climbing the ladder - think leadership positions in HR, marketing, or PR. A few tips for managing this dynamic: 1. **Set Boundaries 🛑**: It’s essential to know when to say no to ensure you're not spreading yourself too thin. 2. **Celebrate Small Wins 🎉**: Recognize and reward yourself for the little achievements along the way, not just the big ones. 3. **Seek Feedback 🗣️**: Regularly check in with trusted friends or mentors to ensure you're balanced in your efforts to help others and achieve your goals. 4. **Practice Self-Care 🧘‍♀️**: Make sure you're taking care of your own needs so you can be the best version of yourself for others. Anyone else have experiences or tips to share for our 2w3 friends? 💬✨ #Enneagram #2w3 #HelpingHand #Achiever
