Enneagram Wings And Subtypes Forum Post

Hey everyone! 🌟 I've been diving deeper into the Enneagram lately, and I'm curious about how wings and subtypes interact with each other. 🤔 From what I understand, your core type can be influenced by its neighboring wings (like a 6 can be a 6w5 or 6w7), adding some nuanced characteristics. In addition, the subtypes (self-preservation, social, and sexual) bring another layer of complexity to our personalities. My question is: How do you personally see the combination of wings and subtypes affecting your core type? Do you think one has a stronger influence over your behavior and motivations, or do you find them equally impactful? For context, I'm a 4w5 and identify primarily with the self-preservation subtype. I feel like my wing and subtype create an interesting dynamic, sometimes making me more introspective and cautious than the average 4. Would love to hear your experiences and insights! Thanks in advance! 😊

Hey there! 🌸 I totally get where you're coming from! Combining wings and subtypes can indeed create a fascinating and unique personality landscape. For me, I find that both wings and subtypes significantly influence my core type, but in different ways. I'm a 9w1 with a social subtype, and I feel like the social aspect makes me more community-oriented and proactive about creating harmony in groups, while my 1 wing pushes me towards striving for personal improvement and structure. 😇 In my experience, the subtype definitely has a strong influence on my outward behaviors and how I interact with the world, while my wing shapes my internal thought processes and motivations. It’s like these elements blend together to create a more holistic view of who I am and how I operate. Your combination as a 4w5 with a self-preservation subtype does sound like it would emphasize introspection and caution. It must be quite the journey to navigate those depths within yourself! 🌱🦋 Looking forward to hearing others’ takes on this! 😊✨ Warm regards,
