More Enneagram

I wrote a post earlier today about how much I love the Enneagram. Encouraging others to also take this test. Enneagram: What Number Are You??

I have taken the test multiple times from multiple sites and my results are always the same.  I am a 3, with a 2 wing.  Here is a little more info about that.

Type 3: The Achiever

Achievers are energetic, optimistic, self-assured, and goal oriented.

How to Get Along with Me

  • Leave me alone when I am doing my work.
  • Give me honest, but not unduly critical or judgmental, feedback.
  • Help me keep my environment harmonious and peaceful.
  • Don’t burden me with negative emotions.
  • Tell me you like being around me.
  • Tell me when you’re proud of me or my accomplishments.

What I Like About Being a Three

  • Being optimistic, friendly, and upbeat.
  • Providing well for my family.
  • Being able to recover quickly from setbacks and to charge ahead to the next challenge.
  • Staying informed, knowing what’s going on.
  • Being competent and able to get things to work efficiently.
  • Being able to motivate people.

What’s Hard About Being a Three

  • Having to put up with inefficiency and incompetence.
  • The fear on not being — or of not being seen as — successful.
  • Comparing myself to people who do things better.
  • Struggling to hang on to my success.
  • Putting on facades in order to impress people.
  • Always being “on.” It’s exhausting.

 

Type 2: The Helper

Helpers are warm, concerned, nurturing, and sensitive to other people’s needs.

How to Get Along with Me

  • Tell me that you appreciate me. Be specific.
  • Share fun times with me.
  • Take an interest in my problems, though I will probably try to focus on yours.
  • Let me know that I am important and special to you.
  • Be gentle if you decide to criticize me.

In Intimate Relationships

  • Reassure me that I am interesting to you.
  • Reassure me often that you love me.
  • Tell me I’m attractive and that you’re glad to be seen with me.

What I Like About Being a Two

  • Being able to relate easily to people and to make friends.
  • Knowing what people need and being able to make their lives better.
  • Being generous, caring, and warm.
  • Being sensitive to and perceptive about others’ feelings.
  • Being enthusiastic and fun-loving, and having a good sense of humor.

What’s Hard About Being a Two

  • Not being able to say no.
  • Having low self-esteem.
  • Feeling drained from overdoing for others.
  • Not doing things I really like to do for myself for fear of being selfish.
  • Criticizing myself for not feeling as loving as I think I should.
  • Being upset that others don’t tune in to me as much as I tune in to them.
  • Working so hard to be tactful and considerate that I suppress my real feelings.

Please take this test and let me know more about you.  Here is a link to a free test: The FAST Accurate Enneagram.
