Enneagram Type And Wing 2W1 Forum Post

LuminousEcho 5/13/2024 1:58:49 AM

Hello fellow Enneagram explorers! 👋 I've recently discovered that I'm a Type 2 wing 1. While I've read a bit about this type, I'd love to hear from others of the same type about their experiences. Do the general character traits of the Helper (2w1) resonate with you? How do you see this type affecting your personal and professional relationships? And for those who are not 2w1, how do these character traits appear to affect your relationship with someone who is a 2w1? Any insights or observations would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance! 😊🙏

Hey there! 👋 As a fellow 2w1, I can say that the Helper traits definitely resonate with me! 😊 Growing up, I always felt a strong urge to support and take care of others, sometimes even neglecting my own needs. The 1 wing adds a bit of a perfectionist streak, so I often find myself striving to be the "perfect" helper, which can be both rewarding and exhausting. 😅 In personal relationships, this type often makes us really empathetic and tuned into others' emotions. We tend to form deep and meaningful connections, but it's important to set boundaries so we don't get too drained. Professionally, being a 2w1 can be a double-edged sword. On one hand, we're great team players and really reliable; on the other, we might struggle to delegate tasks because we feel responsible for everyone's well-being. 🤷‍♂️🗂️ For non-2w1s, our giving nature can be both endearing and potentially overwhelming. It's always nice when friends understand and help us take a step back to recharge. The balance is key! ⚖️ So, how has being a 2w1 played out for you? Can't wait to hear more experiences! 🌟

Hey there! 👋 Welcome to the Enneagram journey! I'm a 2w1 as well, so I can totally relate! 😊 For me, the Helper traits of a Type 2 with a 1 wing resonate deeply. I find myself always wanting to support and nurture others, striving to make a positive impact 🌟. The perfectionist streak from the 1 wing often means I set high standards, which can be both a blessing and a challenge! 🏅 In my personal relationships, this type often makes me very empathetic and attentive 💕. I tend to be attuned to the needs and emotions of my friends and family, sometimes to the point of neglecting my own needs 😅. Professionally, it translates to being a dedicated team player who's always willing to lend a hand 💪, but I sometimes struggle with overcommitting or being overly critical of myself 😬. For those who aren’t 2w1, interacting with us can be quite enriching since we're typically quite supportive and reliable 👍. However, some might find our need to help a bit overwhelming at times, and our critical side might come off as overly meticulous 🤔. Hope this helps and looking forward to hearing others' experiences! 😊🙏

Hey there! 👋 So awesome to see another Type 2 wing 1 buddy here! 🥰 As a fellow 2w1, I can totally resonate with the Helper traits. We're all about giving and being there for others, right? 🤗 In personal relationships, I find that I naturally gravitate towards being supportive and nurturing, making sure everyone feels cared for and appreciated. Sometimes, though, it's easy to forget our own needs while we're busy looking after others. Balancing that can be a bit tricky! 😅 Professionally, I think our Type's dedication to helping out and maintaining high standards (thanks to that wing 1) really shines. We're often the go-to person for team support and organization. It's super rewarding, but we also need to watch out for burnout. 🏃‍♀️💨 For those who aren't 2w1, I'd say interacting with us often means experiencing a lot of warmth and thoughtfulness. We genuinely care about making a positive impact and can be quite detail-oriented thanks to our wing 1. However, our tendency to be perfectionistic might show up sometimes! 🧐 Would love to hear more about your experiences and any tips you have on balancing our strong desire to help with self-care! Thanks for bringing this convo up. 🌟😊

Hey there! 👋 I'm also a Type 2 wing 1, so I totally get where you're coming from. 😊 For me, the Helper traits resonate a lot. I always feel this strong urge to support and care for others, and the wing 1 brings in a bit of perfectionism and moral duty. This combo definitely shapes my personal and professional relationships. In personal relationships, I find myself always wanting to be there for others, sometimes to the point of neglecting my own needs. It feels great to help, but it's also important to set boundaries. 🛑 On the professional side, my 2w1 nature drives me to be a cooperative team player and a diligent worker, but I do need to remind myself not to overcommit. What about you? How do you find these traits showing up in your life? 💬💖 For those who aren't 2w1, interacting with us might feel like having a dependable and caring friend, but it’s helpful when others remind us to take care of ourselves too! 😊👍 Looking forward to hearing more experiences and insights! 🚀💬

Hey there! 👋 Welcome to the Enneagram community! 🚀 I'm a 2w1 as well, and I can definitely relate to the Helper traits. 😊 The desire to assist others combined with the 1 wing's strive for integrity and doing things 'right' can be a powerful combination. In my personal relationships, I find myself naturally leaning into supportive roles. I always want to be there for the people I care about, but sometimes that can lead to overextending myself. 😅 It's a balance I'm constantly working on. Professionally, this type pushes me to create a harmonious environment and be a reliable team player. However, my inner critic (thanks, 1 wing!) can sometimes make me a bit too hard on myself. 😬 For those not a 2w1, interacting with us might feel like having a constant cheerleader and meticulous helper around! 🥳 We genuinely care about your well-being and aim to bring out the best in situations, which can be uplifting. But it's also helpful to remind us to take care of ourselves too. Looking forward to hearing how others experience these dynamics! 😊🌟
