Hey everyone! I'm diving deeper into the Enneagram and am curious about how wings and subtypes interplay within the types. 🤔 I've read that while our core type remains constant, our wings (the numbers adjacent to our core type) and subtypes (self-preservation, social, or one-to-one) can add layers of nuance to our personality. How do wings and subtypes influence your primary type? Do you find that one wing is more dominant, or does it shift based on circumstances? Additionally, how does your dominant subtype shape your experiences and behaviors within the framework of your type? I'd love to hear personal experiences or insights you’ve discovered on this journey. Thanks in advance! 🌟

Hey everyone! 👋 I've been diving deep into the Enneagram system and I’m curious about how wings and subtypes influence our core types. For instance, how do wings (the numbers adjacent to your core type) shape your personality and behavior? Do you find that you relate more to one wing over the other, or perhaps you see traits from both? 🌟 Also, when it comes to subtypes (self-preservation, social, and sexual/one-to-one), how do these play a role in your daily life? Do they sometimes conflict with your core type or wings? 🤔 I’d love to hear personal experiences and insights from anyone who has explored their own wings and subtypes. How has understanding these aspects helped you in personal growth or relationships? Thanks in advance for sharing your wisdom! 💬 #Enneagram #Wings #Subtypes #PersonalGrowth #SelfDiscovery

Hey everyone! 🌟 I'm currently diving deep into the Enneagram and I'm really fascinated by the concepts of wings and subtypes. I understand that each Enneagram type has two wings, but I'm a bit confused about how they influence the core type. For example, how does a 6w5 differ from a 6w7 in terms of behavior and thought patterns? Also, I've come across the idea of subtypes (self-preservation, social, and sexual) and how they can drastically change how a type manifests. Can anyone provide insights or personal experiences on how these subtypes play out in real life for a specific type? Specifically, how would a self-preservation 6 differ from a social 6 or a sexual 6? Would love to hear your thoughts, especially if you have examples or personal stories! Thanks in advance for shedding some light on these intricate aspects of the Enneagram. 😊

Hey Enneagram Forum! 🌸 I've been studying the enneagram in depth recently and stumbled upon the concept of wings and subtypes. I understand that each enneagram type has two wings, and apparently, one of these wings is typically more dominant, influencing our Enneagram type. However, I'm a little confused about how this works practically 🧐. Furthermore, I learned about the 27 subtypes which are a fussion of Instinctual Variants (Self-Preservation, Social, and Sexual) and each of the 9 types. How do these wings influence our primary type and the subtypes? I'd appreciate it if anyone could shed some light on this. What's your experience with understanding and identifying your dominant wing and subtype?🔎 Thanks in advance, everyone! #Wings #Subtypes #EnneagramWings #EnneagramSubtypes

Subject: Understanding Wings and Subtypes in Enneagram - A Discussion 🦋 Hello fellow Enneagram enthusiasts! 😁 I've been delving deep into the intricacies of Enneagram and have encountered the topics of 'Wings' and 'Subtypes'. While I've gathered that 'Wings' are the neighboring types that influence our core type, I'm a bit confused when it comes to 'Subtypes'. Are they defined based on core desire/fear or are they more about how the basic type manifests in our behavior? How do wings and subtypes interact with each other? For example, if I'm a Type 1 with a 2 wing, how would different subtypes alter my behavior or perspective? 🤔 Any insight that could add clarity to these concepts would be highly appreciated! Also, do you know any reliable resources for studying wings and subtypes? Preferably simple but in-depth explanations for better understanding. Thanks a lot in advance! Happy discussing! #Enneagram #Wings #Subtypes 🌈

Hey everyone 👋, I've been trying to get a deeper understanding of the Enneagram, specifically Wings and Subtypes. I know the basic idea is that your dominant type is influenced by one of its neighbors, forming what is termed a 'wing' 🕊️. But I'm still a bit confused on how it works with subtypes. Do wings have an impact on our subtypes, or do subtypes affect how wings manifest in our lives? Also, how does this all come together to shape our overall personality and behavior? Any insights or resources would be greatly appreciated! 😊🙏 #EnneagramWings #EnneagramSubtypes.

Subject: Understanding Enneagram Wings and Subtypes 🦋 Hey fellow Enneagram enthusiasts! I've been intrigued by the enneagram idea for some time now, particularly in the discussion of wings and subtypes. How integral are they to our overall personality type? 🤔 In different resources, some highlight the impact of wings, whereas others focus more on subtypes. Is there any universal agreement about the weight/importance of each? For instance, as a Type 2, I find my behaviors resonate more with the '2w3' wing rather than '2w1.' Moreover, I've come across the Social (So), Sexual (Sx), and Self-Preservation (Sp) subtypes. How do these connect to wings and the main type? How can I accurately identify my subtype? I'll appreciate any insightful responses or resources you can share. Let's keep the thread friendly and enlightening. Thanks! ☺️🙏 Looking forward to your feedback,

Hey All! 😊 I'm trying to deepen my understanding of the Enneagram and its intricacies. I've been doing some reading regarding Wings and Subtypes. I comprehend the basic concept, but I can't help feeling a bit confused between the two distinctions. Mainly, I'm unclear on whether it's possible to have a Subtype and Wing of different numbers or if they must correlate? Also, are a person's wings static or can they change throughout life? Similarly, do our Subtypes stay constant? Any insights or resources you can share to help me clarify these points would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance! 🙏 #EnneagramLearning #EnneagramWings #EnneagramSubtypes

Hi everyone! 👋 I'm a bit new to understanding the Enneagram system and I'm particularly curious about "Enneagram Wings" and "Subtypes". I've learned that a person is primarily of one type but also has traits from a neighboring type on the Enneagram model, which are referred to as "wings"? Can someone elaborate a bit more on what wings really are and how they affect our primary type? Furthermore, I've come across the term "Subtypes". Are these based on how our type behaves depending on the situation? Do wings and subtypes interact? I apologize for all the questions, but I am eager to learn! Thanks for your insight! 😊

Subject: Discussion on Enneagram Wings and Subtypes Hi all! 🙋‍♀️. I've been diving into Enneagram teachings more deeply lately and find myself intrigued by the concepts of 'Wings' and 'Subtypes'. It seems that they add more layers to our main types by influencing our behaviors and motivations, isn't it? My type is 4 and I identify most with 4w5. I've read that the 'w5' indicates my 'wing' which is the neighboring type that influences my core personality. Does your wing resonate strongly with you? Moreover, I've also learned about 'Subtypes' which suggest that each Type has three possible expressions: Self-Preservation, Social and Sexual (or One-to-One). But I find it a bit complicated to fully grasp. Can somebody here please throw more light on how to understand and identify your subtypes accurately? And finally, how do our wings and subtypes interact with our main type? I'd really appreciate your insights and experiences. Thanks! 😊 PS: Newbies, how have your journey been understanding these aspects? 🌼
