I'm new to the enneagram stuff, and have recently identified myself as a 2w3. My preference is so. Someone on the forums noted that they had never seen an ENFP 2w3 before. That makes me even more interested in my enneagram, of course! Can anyone shed some light on your experiences as or with a 2w3? Bonus points for so's and ENFPs :)

I've been an ENFP each time I've taken the test. My S/N is close and so is my T/F, but I still come out more NF every time. I relate a lot to ENFP as well. No doubt on E or P that's for sure! Maybe my S function is coming through a little on my Enneagram? Also I've only taken the Enneagram test once, so maybe that's where the answer lies. Ok just re-took it and I came up as 9w1, 2w3, 7w6. Does that seem more accurate?

With me, with the exception of one time, I've tested as an ENFP. My E, N, and P are always extremely strong preferences (greater than 90%). When I took the test the first time, my t/f was 50.000%…so ENxP. Every time since then, though, my F has been between 51% and 55%, depending on my mood…

She reads like an ENFP to me.

And ENFP 2s and 9s do exist - they're just less common than 7s - (in fact, I'm pretty sure I dated one).

yeah i think they exist too. i just don't think they're very common....and i think sometimes it could point to being mistyped but wasn't saying i think she is exactly...i don't know her.

i took a enneagram test last night and had my boyfriend help me with all the ones that are always hard for me like.....

so many of the questions...i'm just both depending on the day. anyway blah blah blah i got 2w3. i don't think i am but i'm close i think.

Agreed.


...and i think sometimes it could point to being mistyped...

Agreed.

It's obviously far more common amongst EFJs.

Assuming the chart I posted (based on Personality Cafe member data) is accurate (not saying it is, tho), ENFP 2s are as common as INTJ 6s, tho. I don't think we have a single one on here, other than Nicolita, tho, so I'm hoping she is one. She could provide valuable input.


but wasn't saying i think she is exactly...i don't know her.

Gotcha

Type Two in Brief
Twos are empathetic, sincere, and warm-hearted. They are friendly, generous, and self-sacrificing, but can also be sentimental, flattering, and people-pleasing. They are well-meaning and driven to be close to others, but can slip into doing things for others in order to be needed. They typically have problems with possessiveness and with acknowledging their own needs. At their Best: unselfish and altruistic, they have unconditional love for others.

Basic Fear: Of being unwanted, unworthy of being loved
Basic Desire: To feel loved
Enneagram Two with a One-Wing: "Servant"
Enneagram Two with a Three-Wing: "The Host/Hostess"

I relate to most of this. I don't feel that I have a possessive tendency, I lean very strongly toward everyone's gotta do their own thing, and get pretty serious about advocating this for people. I also have little patience for people being possessive of me or "needing" me too much. I'm always very happy to help and love serving others (putting on parties, helping other people host, making food for others, making people comfortable and happy). Maybe that's why I'm "The Hostess" rather than "The Servant". But the bit about loving and being loved being #1 is right on as is the bit about unconditional love. I'm obsessed with the idea, and try very hard to have it for all people whether I know them or not. I have been known to get myself into trouble with being overly self-sacrificial, and later can wind up feeling a little resentful that I've been working while everyone else has been enjoying themselves. The feelings of resentment are directed at nobody but myself usually. Maybe my husband or sisters briefly before I wake up and realize I put myself in that situation.

I think my boss is an ENFP 2w3, but I admit at times I wonder if she's ESFJ - perhaps Fe-Ne with less Si. She can be very adverse to "strangeness", which is weird for a Ne-dom.

She has the "get things going" interaction style which rules out ENFJ. I can't imagine an ESFJ hiring me though. The only people who will ever hire me are ExFPs.

I took this one : http://enneagramquiz.com/quiz.html

I just took the one you recommended, and got a 7. I only took the free version, and I felt like those boxes I had to choose between combined a lot of different qualities that I wished could have been assessed separately. I read up on 7, though, and I definitely have some of those qualities.

When I read about the 2 qualities, I'm reminded of my mother (an ESFJ). I latched on to those qualities way more than either of my sisters (ISFJ and ISTJ), but wonder to what extent I was influenced by her. I do truly feel like those qualities are my own now, but I see my mom every time I act that way. Others have pointed out this similarity between us too.

I'd recommend paying the $10 - it's way more accurate than the free version, and will give you your tritype.

Yeah, we often adopt the fixes of our parents.

Whatever you are, it looks like you are some form of 279/297/729/792/927/972.



279 Peacemaker Archetype

279

As a nine, I hate conflict. It's unbearbale when someone gives me the silent treatment, is angry or withdraws. Especially if I had a loving friendship before and when it hugely matters to me. I really like to bring things in the open and get things resolved. Talk things through. See where it went wrong. I do this without criticism. Though when somebody has hurt me and things have bottled up for a long time I can be very critical, precise and to the point. That's before a conversation to get things resolved where I couldn't control my outburst. Because it unsettles me and makes me sad. Then I can move forward again. When I try to discuss the situation I keep it light. Do not want to feel pain. I want things to be on the same level and harmonious as before and we do not need to delve deep, no need to dwell on the negatives. And let's forget about it. I will acknowledge my errors and empathise, even when I sometimes know I do this more then I should. I think the above is my 7 tritype. I think 4 is not the other tritype as I do not feel envious. It's not a passion or drive so to speak. Any input would be appreciated, thanks.

Have you ever taken the enneacards test on enneagram.net? It will help you identify your heart center, or at least give you somewhere to start.

From what you've described above I would guess you had 2 in the heart center, with two positive outlook types (2 and 7) and the 9 there is a need to keep things positive, a driving need almost or else it is unbearable. The criticality and bottling up phenomena could be due to the 9 in charge, and the 1 wing, as well as the social subtype who all are prone to a sort of indignant, critical anger.

Here's what Katherine wrote:

If you are a 279, you are caring, innovative and accepting. You want to be helpful, upbeat and peaceful. You are very kind and tend to see the best in others, focusing on easy and comfortable ways of relating. You hate conflict and/or strife and use your sense of humor to smooth out difficulties.

Your life mission is to create and promote smooth and harmonic ways to handle conflict. A true peacemaker, you are happiest when you can ease tension and help others get along with one another.

You can be so identified with keeping life free of conflict and negativity that you may turn a blind eye to conflicts that need to be managed as opportunities for change.

*Most optimistic tritypes-279, 729, 927
279...positive

This tritype [927] is the most identified with seeing themselves as peaceful. More than any other tritype, they need peace and positive relating to experience a sense of being... so are extremely uncomfortable with negativity in relationships. The 479 doesn't like it but expects it. It also brings the 937 tritype which is the true ambassador of goodwill.

If you have the sexual instinct as dominant you could easily identify with 974. The 972 is less ethereal and more focused on being positive. The 974 knows that they feel unhappy, they are more inclined to hide so that they will not be rejected for being negative.

The super positive types 279 and 379, report that they try to get thru grief as quickly as possible, especially if self-pres.

Yes, there is more than one positive Tritype. The super positive Tritypes are the 279, the 379. The 279 is a the Tritype that wants comfortable, easy relating. The 2 brings a greater emphasis on people.This is the 2ish caring, people oriented 7 or 9. The 379 is even more upbeat and positive. The 3 brings more of an emphasis on achievements. For example this is the professional, 3ish 9 or 7.

All of the 79 combinations are somewhat positive. The 279 is focused on being pleasant. The 379 the most positive. The 479 Is positive outwardly but doesn't always feel it.

2-7-9 - The Positivist

Characterized by unbridled optimism. They don't allow anything to get them down, and they love to enjoy themselves by surrounding themselves with great company and fun atmospheres. They may be a bit unrealistic however.

a person could be the 927 or "The Peacemaker" Tritype, and after utilizing the dominant Type 9 strategies the person may move to their lines of connection (Type 3 and Type 7) as well as to their possible wings (Type 1 and Type 8). However, if these connections are not effective for the person, they may move to Type 2 and become more helpful, effusive and relational, and then move subsequently to Type 7 to utilize positive reframing, escapism or future planning in order to achieve desirable results.

From what you've described above I would guess you had 2 in the heart center, with two positive outlook types (2 and 7) and the 9 there is a need to keep things positive, a driving need almost or else it is unbearable. The criticality and bottling up phenomena could be due to the 9 in charge, and the 1 wing, as well as the social subtype who all are prone to a sort of indignant, critical anger.

Trying to keep a positive outlook at all times. (9-2-7)

2-9s - They avoid admitting that they have a (completely) negative image (and avoid anything that may lead to such a state). They're ultimate fear is that they have a completely "black" image and are unable to escape it. They enter a strong state of denial when this occurs. This isn't necessarily because of the Two side, but much rather because the 9 side can't handle such a reality and thus this kind of Two is more likely to withdraw into a more "positive" perspective of themselves. It's much nicer and much more comforting that way.

Yeah, that's how my mom is (she says that shit all the time -- it's annoying), and she's an ESFJ 2w3.

My boss is cool with ME being weird. There is also very little structure imposed in our atmosphere. I get away with all kinds of stuff.

She loves pondering strange ideas also, especially religious ones. Her sense of aesthetics & propriety is just kind of conservative. But she generally seems more NF-y than SJ.

My grandma is ESFJ 2w3 and much more typically ESFJ & SJ in temperament, but she's an older generation also...

As far as real world behavioral patterns which indicate function preferences, I find this almost more useful than P/J stuff:

Something about Fe types getting all manipulative & spiteful when not given the affection/attention they crave & Fi types just whining about it.

This was interesting! I still got ENFP, although I had a tough time choosing between two of them. My second choice ended up being ENTP (that's consistent with my percentages on the MBTI too). I love to hear you talk about employment the way that you do! I always have had a fear that I have to hide who I really am so employers things I'm more "together" than I am. Very inspiring. May I ask what kind of work you do?

i mean i can see that influence in myself...but i'm still fi...definitely not fe

and nicolita i know! when they give you two opposing words and you have to chose between them it can be very hard to know how to answer. i find that
especially true for a type like 7w6 where the anxiousness almost feels equal to the confidence and there's many questions along that same theme.

Although my 2 status is under question, I am NOT anal or organized. Like to a fault. I do like to organize social events though, but I do so with a very open go-with-the-flow attitude. I invite everyone under the sun, get some good music and food together, and let the magic happen. I'm generally unconcerned with the details, especially once it's all under way. I'm dancing and partying, not cleaning or fretting, but if anyone comes to me with a need during a party, I'll gladly do everything I can to help them out.

I think the classic ENFP in all the descriptions is a 2w3 fix based on this. I could never relate to this type of behavior lol

He tested as a 1w9. He only took that quiz once, and it was not the $10 test recommended. I read the 8 and 1 descriptions, though, and he definitely fits 1 better. He can display some 8-ish behavior some times I suppose, but he wouldn't have made it to husband status if he were actually a controlling person. I couldn't bear it!

Oh no, haha. I don't think 'e2 & e8 co-dependency' is a professionally recognized inter-relational condition. That's just my personal observation.

[whoops...I should add...that this is my personal observation as it pertains to e2 & e8...but moreso it is a commentary on the institution of marriage. Likewise, I should mention that I do not feel all aspects of co-dependency are negative. To the contrary...I believe many of the features attributed to co-dependency have kept our species alive.

I should also add that I believe so much of this information on marriage, divorce, etc. is problematic because many types are more 'traditional' in nature and seek out these kinds of social institutions...like the e2 & e8...while say...e7 is more likely to be non-traditional. My point is...it can be difficult at times to understand all of what is going on.]

Yah...INTJ 1w9 is somewhat common I believe. They are probably often mistyped by others as being ISTJ.

There's my Stansmith. Helping Starry out :) That is exactly it. It is such a 'classic' marriage/family kind of thing.

Upon further investigation, I believe I'm a 7 by nature and have some strong 2 in me by nurture. I took a longer enneagram test, and I came up as 7429 (4 and 2 were tied, so I'm not sure if I should include the 9). Sorry to disappoint you guys, haha. Looks like I'm just another ENFP 7. Ho-hum.

Just a heads up, you can't have 2 heart-fixes in your tritype. It's either 2 or 4, and then the last one has to be from the gut triad (8, 9, 1)

Oh! Ok, I think I may have finally figured this out. 729. I know you said I can't have 4 in there too, but as an aside, I still have some 4 tendencies.

Thanks for the help y'all!

I love it. Thank you for jerking my Ti-peen.

As for OP, I'd imagine they'd be too busy doting on others.

To be typing away on a forum I suppose is what he means.

I said too busy FOR what. Not DOING what. I know what doting means.

:unsure: Sorry. Just wanted to clarify my question. Maybe the all-caps words gave the wrong message. Carry on...

7s and 7-wingers have surface traits that are broadly similar to 4s (for example, eccentricity and a desire for self expression) , but real 4-ness is a whole other monster. Who knows though, maybe you are a 4-fix and the 2-ness comes from being a So-Dom. Just keep doing research and something will stick :)
