Hello members! 👋 I'm recently introduced to the concept of the Enneagram and find it truly fascinating! After some self-reflection and assessment, I believe that I may be a Type 2 with a 1 wing (2w1). I would like to know more about the practical implications of this type. Can anyone here describe how a 2w1 tends to behave in personal relationships or work settings? Are there any typical strengths and weaknesses I should be aware of? Any advice on how to develop both Type 2 and 1 qualities more effectively is also welcome. 🤔 I'm eager to learn from your experiences and knowledge. Thanks! 😊🙏

Hello Everyone! 👋 I'm an Enneagram Type 2 with a 1 Wing (2w1). For a while now, I've been trying to understand how this combination influences my behavior, reactions, and relationships. I'm particularly interested in how the Wing 1 adds a different layer to the nurturing and helping nature of the Type 2. If there are any fellow 2w1 people out there, could you share your experiences? How do you feel this blend impacts you? And for those who are not 2w1 but are familiar with Enneagram, could you share any insights you have about this type/wing combination? Thanks in advance! 🙏😊

Hello Enneagram community! 😊 I've recently discovered that my Enneagram type is a 2w1 and it's been a really insightful experience to understand myself through this lens. I've noticed with a 2w1, the 'helper' aspect is quite dominant, but the 'perfectionist' wing also plays a significant role in shaping my behavior. One area confusion arises is in differentiating between when I'm portraying traits of type 2 or wing 1 or if they always coexist together. Could someone explain how these two aspects interplay in a typical 2w1? Any examples would be appreciated! Also, how does knowing you are a 2w1 affect your daily life or decision making? Looking forward to hearing your thoughts and experiences. Thank you! 🙏

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 everyone! I've recently discovered that I'm a Type 2w1 on the Enneagram scale 🎉. It's been extremely enlightening for me and has allowed me to better understand my personality traits and motivations, but I still have some questions. I often find myself offering emotional support and assistance to those around me, sometimes to my own detriment, and I suspect this is tied to my "Helper" nature. Could you all help explain how the '1' wing influences my Type 2 behavior? How exactly does this combination of Type and Wing manifest in everyday life? Any advice about navigating common pitfalls or ways to utilize my strengths more effectively would be deeply appreciated! Thanks in advance 🙏.

Hello everyone! I've recently discovered I identify as a Type 2 with a 1 wing (2w1) on the Enneagram. I understand that being a 2w1 means I'm mainly a helper who values relationships highly, but with a grounding influence from the Type 1's desire for integrity and perfection. I am curious to understand this combination more deeply. Specifically, how does the '1 wing' influence or modify the priorities, behaviors and challenges of the core Type 2? Also, if there are other 2w1s out there, how have you integrated or resolved the sometimes conflicting desires of these two types in your life experiences? Any input would be greatly appreciated! 😊🙏🏼

Hello all, hope you're doing well! 😊 I'm fairly new to understanding the depth of Enneagram types and I seem to have figured out that I'm a Type 2 (The Helper), with a Wing 1 (The Perfectionist). Recognizing this as 2w1, I've been trying to understand how the attributes of both types interact and shape my personality more. Can anyone with the same Enneagram (2w1) share what it's like for them? How does the perfectionist wing influence the helping nature of a type 2? What are the challenges? And any personal growth tips would be greatly appreciated! 🙏 Thanks in advance!

Hey fellow Enneagram enthusiasts! I'm trying to gain a deeper understanding of my Enneagram type, which is 2 (The Helper) with a 1 wing (The Perfectionist). For those of you who are 2w1, can anyone shed some light on how your 1 wing influences your type 2 personality traits? Do you find you lean more towards helping others (2) or striving for perfection/control (1)? Any insights would be much appreciated! 🤔🙂 #Enneagram2w1 #PersonalGrowth

Hey Enneagram community! 😊 I've recently discovered my type as 2w1 (Helper with wing Perfectionist). I'm curious to know how this wing might influence the overall personality traits and emotional patterns of Type 2. I would appreciate it if people of this specific type could share their experiences and how they navigate through life with this type/wing combination. Also, does your 1 wing result in any internal conflict with the core characteristics of a Type 2? Looking forward to get enlightened by your responses. Thank you! 🙏🌻

Hello everyone. 🙋‍♂️ I recently discovered that my Enneagram type is 2w1, the Servant. I'm aware that the 2 type is generally altruistic, striving to help others while struggling with issues of self-worth, and the wing 1 adds a layer of perfectionism, emphasizing personal integrity and values. I'm just wondering how the combination of these two traits as a 2w1 type might influence my day-to-day behavior, relationships, and personal growth? How do others with this type manage the conflict between wanting to help others versus prioritizing self-care? I'm particularly interested in learning more about how my wing 1 affects my propensity for the need to be loved, that is so evident in type 2s. Any advice, interpretations or personal experiences from fellow 2w1s (or anyone knowledgeable!) would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for helping me understand myself better! 👍😊
