Enneagram Type And Wing 2W3 Forum Post

Hi everyone! 😊 I've recently taken the enneagram test and found myself as a type 2, with a 3 wing (2w3). While I'm excited to learn about my personal self-insight, I'm still a little unsure exactly what the nuances of a 2w3 are. 🧐 What are common attributes of this type and wing? How do they interact with each other, and is the difference notable compared to a 2w1? Any resources for better understanding would also be deeply appreciated. 🙏🏼 Looking forward to your insights! #Enneagram #2w3

Hi there! 😊 Welcome to the wonderful world of the Enneagram! As a fellow 2w3, I can totally relate to your enthusiasm and curiosity. Type 2s, known as "The Helpers," are generally empathetic, generous, and people-oriented. When you add the 3 wing, known as "The Achiever," you'll find that the type 2w3 individual is more ambitious, sociable, and image-conscious compared to the 2w1, which is more idealistic and principled. Here are a few nuances of a 2w3: 💖 **Caring & Supportive**: As a core Type 2, you’re naturally inclined to help and nurture others. 🌟 **Ambitious & Driven**: The 3 wing adds a touch of ambition, making you more goal-oriented and success-focused. 🎭 **Sociable & Adaptable**: You’ll likely find yourself fitting in socially and might have a knack for knowing what others want to see or hear from you. 🏆 **Recognition-Seeking**: You enjoy being appreciated and might work hard to get that recognition in both personal and professional settings. Comparing to a 2w1, you’ll notice 2w1s might be more reserved, self-critical, and motivated by doing what they believe is morally right, while 2w3s lean towards being more charming, outgoing, and focused on personal success. For resources, I'd recommend checking out books like "The Road Back to You" by Ian Morgan Cron and Suzanne Stabile, and looking for podcasts or YouTube channels dedicated to the Enneagram. Hope this helps, and enjoy your journey of self-discovery! 🌟🙏🏼 #EnneagramJourney ❤️

Hey there! 😊 Welcome to the Enneagram community! It's fantastic that you're diving deep into your type and wing. As a 2w3, your core type (Type 2) means you're nurturing, empathetic, and often driven by a desire to help others. The 3 wing adds an element of ambition, sociability, and a knack for achieving goals. 🌟 Common attributes of a 2w3 include being charismatic, relationship-oriented, and a bit of a go-getter. You might find yourself more focused on receiving recognition for your helpful deeds compared to a 2w1, who may lean more towards being principled and perfectionistic. The interaction between your Type 2 and Type 3 wing can create a dynamic personality that’s both caring and success-oriented. 💖🏆 Regarding resources, I recommend checking out "The Wisdom of the Enneagram" by Don Richard Riso and Russ Hudson, which is a great book for diving deeper.

Hi there! 😊 Welcome to the world of the Enneagram! 🌟 It's great that you're diving into understanding your 2w3 type. As a 2w3, you're known as "The Host/Hostess" or "The Charmer". This combines the friendliness and helpfulness of a Type 2 (The Helper) with the charm and ambition of a Type 3 (The Achiever). Here are some common attributes: ✨ Compassionate and empathetic ✨ Highly sociable and outgoing ✨ Supportive and encouraging ✨ Driven to be seen as successful and likable ✨ Good at networking and connecting with people The 2w3 blend means you're often motivated both by a desire to help others (2) and to achieve and be admired (3). This can make you very energetic and engaging, always wanting to be there for others while also striving for recognition. In contrast, a 2w1 (The Helper with a wing 1) might be more focused on moral integrity and helping others in a more principled, selfless way. For deeper insights, I'd recommend checking out "The Wisdom of the Enneagram" by Don Riso and Russ Hudson. Also, podcasts like "Typology" and websites like Enneagram Institute can be great resources! 📚🎧 Happy exploring! If you have any specific questions, feel free to ask. 💬 #Enneagram #2w3 🌟
