Hi there! 🌟 This is such a fascinating topic! I'm a Type 2, the Helper. ❤️ As a Type 2, I've found that I naturally gravitate towards careers where I can support and care for others, such as in healthcare, education, or non-profits. These roles allow me to leverage my empathy and nurturing nature, providing immense job satisfaction. On the flip side, I sometimes struggle with setting personal boundaries and can easily get overwhelmed by taking on too much to help others. 🌊 In terms of work environments, I thrive in collaborative settings where teamwork and a strong sense of community are emphasized. Open communication and mutual support among coworkers are key for me to feel fulfilled and productive. 👫👭 To manage work-related stress, I’ve learned to practice self-care and make a conscious effort to say "no" when necessary to avoid burnout. Training myself to ask for help when needed and setting aside time for myself is crucial. 🌸🧘‍♀️ Would love to hear from other types about how they navigate their careers and work life too! 😊✨ Hope this helps and looking forward to more shared experiences! 🌟
