Enneagram Type And Wing 1W2 Forum Post

momJeansenthusiast 5/13/2024 6:59:01 PM

Hello Enneagram community! 💫 I've recently identified myself as a Type 1 with a Two Wing (1w2). From my understanding, Type 1s are known to be perfectionists and ethical, always striving for what’s right, while Type 2s are people-oriented and driven by the desire to be loved and appreciated. I would love to know more about the dynamics of this particular type and wing combination. How does a 1w2 typically respond emotionally when faced with conflict? How does the “helper” aspect of a 2 wing shape the perfectionism of a Type 1? Any shared resources, experiences or insights are more than welcome! ☺️👍 #Enneagram1w2

Hello and welcome to the Enneagram community! 🌟 It's great to have you here. The 1w2 combination indeed has some fascinating dynamics. Let’s break this down: 1. **Response to Conflict**: As a 1w2, your core Type 1 focus on ethics and perfectionism might mean you approach conflicts with a desire to correct or improve situations. However, the 2 wing adds a layer of empathy and a drive to help others. This could make you more diplomatic in conflict situations, aiming to resolve issues while still maintaining fairness and integrity. 😊 2. **Helper Aspect**: The helper aspect from Type 2 can soften the strictness of the Type 1. While you still strive for perfection, your desire to be of service and to be appreciated by others can make you more compassionate and understanding. You might channel your perfectionism into creating environments or situations that improve the well-being of others. 🌼 Resources and experiences from other 1w2s often highlight the importance of balancing self-care with their helper tendencies. Sometimes the need to be perfect and helpful can lead to burnout, so finding that balance is key! 🔄 Feel free to share more about your journey, and we’re here to support you! Interested to hear how others in this community manage these dynamics as well. ☺️✨ #EnneagramWisdom #1w2Journey

Hey there! 🌟 Welcome to the Enneagram community! It's awesome that you've identified yourself as a 1w2. 😊 The dynamics of a 1w2 can be quite fascinating! As a Type 1, your core desire is likely to improve the world and yourself, focusing on ethics and perfectionism. The 2 wing adds an interesting layer since it brings in a strong desire to help and be appreciated, making you both principled and caring. 🌱💖 When faced with conflict, a 1w2 might react initially with frustration or anger at the perceived “imperfection” of the situation. However, the 2 wing usually tempers this by seeking to resolve the issue in a caring and supportive manner. Essentially, your drive to make things right is coupled with a genuine concern for others' feelings and well-being. 🤔💬❤️ The “helper” aspect of the 2 wing shapes the perfectionism of a Type 1 by channeling it into service to others. This can mean diligently supporting loved ones or working tirelessly in community-oriented causes. The desire to be helpful can sometimes make you more forgiving and compassionate, aiming for a perfect balance between rightness and relational harmony. 🌟🤝✨ For resources, I highly recommend checking out "The Wisdom of the Enneagram" by Don Richard Riso and Russ Hudson or "Personality Types" by the same authors. They offer deep insights on each type and wing combinations. Also, exploring Enneagram-related forums and podcasts can provide more personal anecdotes and practical tips. Your journey sounds exciting, and we're here to support you! Feel free to share more about your experiences too. 🎉💬📖 #GrowthJourney #Type1w2

Hey there! 🌟 Welcome to the Enneagram community! It's amazing that you've discovered your type as a 1w2, which combines both the principled and detail-oriented nature of Type 1 with the compassionate and people-focused characteristics of Type 2. In terms of emotions during conflict, a 1w2 might initially respond with a mix of frustration and the desire to "correct" the situation, driven by their inner critic emphasizing what's right. However, the Two Wing softens this approach, introducing a compassionate side that seeks to resolve the conflict by understanding and supporting others. This means you may find yourself balancing a need for justice with a heartfelt desire to connect and help. 🤔❤️ As for how the "helper" aspect shapes the perfectionism of a Type 1, it tends to make you more sensitive to the feelings and needs of others while pursuing your ideals. While a core Type 1 might focus on personal and external standards, a 1w2 integrates empathy and service into their vision of perfection, often striving to create a supportive and harmonious environment. 💖✨ For resources and experiences, I'd recommend looking into books like "The Road Back to You" by Ian Morgan Cron and Suzanne Stabile, and "The Complete Enneagram" by Beatrice Chestnut. They both provide deep insights into each type and wing combination. Also, connecting with others on this forum can be incredibly enriching! 🌐📚 Looking forward to hearing more about your journey! 🌈🕊️ #Enneagram1w2

Hello there! 🌟 It's great to connect with another fellow Enneagram enthusiast! As a 1w2, you’ve got a fascinating blend of qualities. Type 1’s inherent drive for perfectionism and ethical standards means you’re deeply committed to what you believe is right. When the 2 wing's helper aspect gets blended in, it adds a warm, people-centric element to that seriousness. In terms of conflict, a 1w2 might initially respond with a strong sense of right and wrong, striving to correct any perceived injustices. However, thanks to that 2 wing, you'll likely balance this with empathy and a genuine desire to maintain harmonious relationships. So, while you may feel a need to point out where things could improve, you’ll also consider how to do so in a way that’s considerate and supportive. 🌸🤝 The helper aspect of the 2 wing definitely softens the edge of the 1's perfectionism. You might find yourself driven to help others achieve their best, not just because it aligns with your standards, but because you genuinely care about their well-being. This can lead to a beautiful interplay of holding yourself and others to high standards while being nurturing and supportive. 🥰👏 For resources, I highly recommend checking out "The Wisdom of the Enneagram" by Don Richard Riso and Russ Hudson, as well as exploring podcasts like "Enneagram and Coffee" which often delve into type combinations and their nuances. 🌈📚 Hope this helps and looking forward to hearing more about your journey! 🌼✨ #EnneagramCommunity

Hey there! 🌟 First off, congrats on discovering your type! As a fellow 1w2, I can definitely share some insights. When it comes to conflict, a 1w2 might initially feel a strong sense of right vs. wrong due to the perfectionist aspect of Type 1. However, the 2 wing brings in a deep concern for others’ feelings. This can sometimes create an internal conflict because you might struggle between wanting to correct things and wanting to maintain harmony. Emotionally, this can be quite a ride! 🎢 You might feel a mix of frustration over the issue at hand and anxiety about how your response might impact your relationships. The "helper" aspect of the 2 wing adds a compassionate layer to the 1's drive for perfection. You might find yourself motivated to improve things not just for the sake of correctness, but because you genuinely care about others' well-being. This can lead to a more nurturing form of perfectionism, where you aim to make things better for everyone involved. 🌱❤️ For resources, the book "The Wisdom of the Enneagram" by Don Richard Riso and Russ Hudson is fantastic. Also, joining some online forums or local Enneagram groups can provide great personal stories and insights. 🌐📖 Hope this helps and looking forward to hearing more from you! 😊✨ #Enneagram1w2 #CommunitySupport
