Can someone who understands enneagram on here explain my results to me?
Cause like, I get I'm a type 2 according to this. But, I'm also supposed to have a Wing? I thought? And it was supposed to be one of the numbers near me?
I don't get it, because they're nowhere near my other scores.
@Magicalmilly with the enneagram, tests won't necessarily be accurate in telling you what number you are. The best way to know is to read descriptions of the types and decide for yourself which one fits you the best. Keep in mind that the types are based on core motivations not behavior. So for example I may sometimes do things that seem 5-like, but my deeper reasons for doing so stem from my 9-ness. This site has been really helpful for me in understanding the enneagram: https://www.enneagraminstitute.com/
@Magicalmilly so, tbh, Enneagram numbers and wings are whichever you see the most prominently in yourself. So, as a 2 (if you feel that’s the right fit) your wing would be a 1 or 3. Whichever feels right to you, not necessarily to a test. 😊
@JosiahRA thing is, neither of those really feel right.
Like, I feel like saying Im' a 2 is very accurate. I am driven by a need to help and serve others.
But 8 honestly is the next most descriptive. I guess, if I had to pick one, I'd pick a 1
But, like, 8 would be the most descriptive. I have an overwhelming need to lead and I'm confident and assertive and don't back down
It's driven by my need to help others and serve others and help others get better, but both 8 and 2 describe me to a T
@Magicalmilly 8s take on the traits of 2s when they're healthy/in a good headspace. if you're an 8, you likely have some traits of 7 and 9 (your wings).
@LiveYourValues @Magicalmilly This! Conversely, if you're a 2, you take on traits of an 8 when you're moving in your direction of stress. More food for thought: https://www.enneagraminstitute.com/misidentifying-2-and-8
