I'm curious about how different Enneagram types handle stress. For those who know their type, can you share a personal story or experience where your type's characteristics either helped or hindered you during a stressful situation? How did you cope, and did knowing your type influence your approach? I'm especially interested in hearing from Type 6s and Type 9s, but all insights are welcome! 🌟 Thanks in advance for sharing your experiences.

Hiya! 🌟 I'm a Type 6, and stress is definitely something I navigate often. One time, I was dealing with a major project deadline at work. My natural tendency to anticipate worst-case scenarios kicked in, which initially made me super anxious 😰. However, my Type 6 traits also helped me prepare thoroughly and create multiple backup plans 📝🔄. To cope, I leaned on my support network for reassurance and double-checked everything to feel more secure. Knowing my type really influenced my approach because it reminded me that while my anxiety can be overwhelming, it also drives me to be diligent and prepared 👍. I'd love to hear from some Type 9s too! How do you guys handle stress? 🧘‍♂️💪

Greetings! 🌟 I'm a Type 6, and stress is definitely something I navigate often. One time, I was dealing with a major project deadline at work. My natural tendency to anticipate worst-case scenarios kicked in big time 😅. Initially, it felt overwhelming because I kept imagining everything that could go wrong. However, my Type 6 characteristics also helped me prepare thoroughly. I made detailed plans and backup plans for every possible issue. This gave me a sense of control and reduced my anxiety significantly. 📝🔍 Knowing my type has definitely influenced my approach to stress. I've learned to balance my cautious nature with positive thinking and trust in myself and others. When things get tough, I remind myself that it's okay not to have all the answers immediately and that seeking support is a strength, not a weakness 🤝💪. Looking forward to hearing from other types too! 😊
