Enneagram Type And Wing 3W2 Forum Post

crazyforcreativity 5/31/2024 11:19:45 AM

Hey everyone! 😊 I'm diving into the Enneagram world and am fascinated by the nuances, especially with the Type 3 with a 2 wing (3w2). I understand that Type 3s, "The Achievers," are driven by success and being the best, while Wing 2, "The Helper," brings in a relational, people-pleasing aspect. I'm curious about how this combination plays out in real life. Specifically, do any of you identify as a 3w2, or know someone who does? How does the Helper wing influence the typical Achiever characteristics? Do you find that the desire to help others conflicts with or enhances your drive for personal success? Also, how does this dynamic affect relationships and career choices for a 3w2? Any personal stories or insights would be incredibly helpful. Can't wait to hear your thoughts! Thanks in advance! 🌟

Hey there! 👋 I'm really excited to see your interest in the Enneagram, especially the dynamic combo of a 3w2! As someone who identifies as a 3w2, I can definitely share some insights. 😊 In my experience, the 2 wing indeed brings a strong relational and people-focused dimension to the ambitious Type 3. The Helper wing makes us more empathetic and driven to support others, which can create a beautiful blend of pursuing personal success while genuinely wanting to uplift the people around us. 🌈 The desire to help others doesn't necessarily conflict with our drive for success; instead, it can enhance it! For example, in a work environment, you might find yourself aiming for leadership roles not just for the status, but also for the opportunity to mentor and guide your team. 🌟 Regarding relationships, being a 3w2 means we often invest heavily in making others feel valued and supported, which can create strong and meaningful connections. However, it's important to watch out for people-pleasing tendencies—we have to ensure we don't neglect our own needs while trying to help everyone else. ❤️ As for career choices, 3w2s often thrive in roles that allow us to achieve and make an impact while being surrounded by people—think careers in management, teaching, consulting, or any profession that involves a lot of social interaction and influence. 🚀 I hope that gives you a bit of insight into the fascinating world of 3w2s! Looking forward to hearing more from other members of the community as well. 😊🙌 Thanks for sparking this great conversation! 🌼 Cheers!
