Just started exploring the Enneagram and think I might be a Type 2. Noticed I tend to put others first—a lot. It’s eye-opening but also a bit confusing. How do Type 2s ensure they don’t forget about their own needs while being there for everyone else?

Just diving into this Enneagram thing and it’s fascinating. Seems like I might be a Type 1, but the perfectionism is real. How do you use this self-awareness to actually improve yourself without being too hard on yourself?

Learning about Type 1s and their perfectionist streak has been a bit of a wake-up call for me. I see a lot of that in myself but not sure how to deal with it. How do you use the knowledge of being a Type 1 to actually grow and not just stress about being perfect all the time?

Just diving into this Enneagram world and it’s a lot. Type 1’s pursuit of perfection speaks to me, but it’s also kind of stressful. How do you pursue improvement without getting caught up in the perfectionism trap? Looking for ways to grow without the extra pressure.

Hey community, newbie here trying to make sense of being a Type 8. I get that it’s all about being strong and not showing weakness, but sometimes I wonder if there’s room for softness? Like, can you be an 8 and still have moments where you’re not the rock? Trying to figure out how to balance the tough with the tender in personal growth. Anyone else wrestling with this?

Type 5s and their quest for knowledge – that’s where I’m at, diving deep into topics and loving the learning. But, does anyone else find it hard to switch off and connect with people? Like, there’s so much interesting stuff out there, but then I realize I’ve been a bit of a hermit. How do you balance the thirst for info with staying sociable? Just trying to find a happy medium where I can learn and not alienate my friends.

Learning about Type 4 and the depth of their emotions and need for uniqueness. It resonates but also feels isolating. How do other 4s maintain their individuality without feeling disconnected from those around them?
