Enneagram Wings And Subtypes Forum Post

Hi everyone! 😊 I've been diving deep into the world of Enneagram and am curious about how wings and subtypes influence our core type. For instance, if someone identifies as a Type 4 with a 5 wing (4w5), how might their experience differ from a Type 4 with a 3 wing (4w3)? Additionally, how do the three subtypes (self-preservation, social, and one-to-one) further refine or alter the characteristics of each wing? It'd be great to hear personal experiences or insights on how these nuances play out in real life. Any book or resource recommendations on this topic would also be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance! 🙏✨#Enneagram #Wings #Subtypes #PersonalGrowth

Hi there! 😊 It's fantastic to see your enthusiasm for diving into the Enneagram! 🌟 Let's break it down a bit: For a Type 4 with a 5 wing (4w5): - 🕵️‍♂️ They tend to be more introspective, intellectual, and might enjoy spending time alone reflecting on deeper meanings. - 🌌 Often seen as more reserved but with a profound internal world and creative insights. For a Type 4 with a 3 wing (4w3): - 🎭 They might be more ambitious, image-conscious, and driven to achieve and be appreciated for their unique talents. - 💃 Usually more outgoing and sociable, using their creativity in a way that garners recognition and approval. Regarding the subtypes: - 🌿 Self-preservation (sp): Focuses on security and comfort, might be protective of their personal space and resources. - 🌍 Social (so): Seeks to find their identity in group settings, values social connections and community. - 🤝 One-to-one (sx): Prioritizes deep, intimate connections, thrives on intense, one-on-one relationships. These subtypes mix with your core type and wing to create a unique flavor of Enneagram experience. For example, a 4w5 with a self-preservation subtype might be more withdrawn and focused on personal survival and comfort, while a 4w3 with a one-to-one subtype might seek to stand out and shine in their closest relationships. For resources, I highly recommend "The Complete Enneagram" by Beatrice Chestnut. 📚 It's a deep dive into each type, wing, and subtype, packed with insights. Feel free to share your own experiences and thoughts! 🌻✨#CuriousMinds #EnneagramJourney
