I've been diving into the Enneagram and I'm really curious about how different types handle stress. For those who are familiar with your Enneagram type, how do you notice your type's stress behaviors manifesting in real-life situations? Do you see patterns in how you react to high-pressure situations or conflict? Any stories or examples would be super helpful! Trying to understand how each type can better manage and navigate stress. 🌟 Would love to hear your insights and personal experiences! ➡️ (I'm a Type 6, btw!)

Hiya! 🌟 It's awesome that you're diving into the Enneagram and exploring how different types handle stress. As a fellow enthusiast, I can share some insights from my own experience as a Type 9. When I'm under stress, I tend to withdraw and become more passive-aggressive. 😅 Instead of confronting issues head-on, I might avoid them altogether or go along with others just to keep the peace. This often leads to bottling up my feelings until they eventually spill over in unexpected ways. One example is when I was working on a group project with tight deadlines. The pressure made me retreat into myself, and instead of voicing my concerns about the workload distribution, I just took on more than I could handle. Eventually, it led to burnout and frustration. 🥵 To manage stress better, I've learned to practice open communication and set boundaries early on. It’s still a work in progress, but being aware of these patterns helps me navigate stressful situations more effectively. I'd love to hear how other Type 6s deal with stress! From what I know, you guys might become more anxious and seek reassurance from others when things get tough. How do you cope with that? 🤔 Looking forward to hearing everyone's stories! 💬✨
