    Question How to distinguish between a 2w3 and a 3w2?

    I've always been unable to fully grasp if I'm a 2w3 or a 3w2. What are some major differences between the two types? Here's some information, if necessary.

    Why I Think I'm a 2w3/Why I Don't Think I'm a 3w2:
    --I love being able to nurture and care for people; I have a natural maternal instinct.
    --I love being told I'm sweet, kind, warm, etc.
    --I'm very much a procrastinator and I hold things off until the last minute.
    --I value my relationships very highly.
    --I HATE doing things that I don't enjoy, such as schoolwork in subjects I'm not interested in. I'm very unmotivated in that regard.
    --I'm not great at finishing things that I don't HAVE to finish. If I start writing a story, for instance, I'm bored by it after awhile. (This could be a result of 7 being the second type in my tritype.)

    Why I Think I'm a 3w2/Why I Don't Think I'm a 2w3:
    --The thing I find myself thinking about most is if I'm "enough": pretty enough, talented enough, etc. I compare myself a lot.
    --I'm definitely most comfortable in positions where I'm in the spotlight or in control. I love appearing on top of things even if I'm not.
    --I expect a lot out of myself. Even though I'm a procrastinator, I have very high standards for certain things.
    --When people are dependent on me or smother me, I start to DETEST it. I hate being smothered and I value my independence.
    --I value my alone time to introspect a lot, preferring to withdraw every now and then.

    Any help? Thanks!

    Can't really tell from all just this, of course... but yeah, 2 looks good.
    You are so arbitrary.

    Thanks for your input! I'm probably leaning towards 2w3 at this point. It's so hard because every test tells me something different (one test said I was a 1 which really confused me!)

    No problem

    Tests are fun/interesting/thought-prokoking/...strange. So I wouldn't put a lot of weight into a test. If you do put in some amount of attention to it, then it should be balanced with other sources of information (your perspectives, other's opinions and stuff ...and sometimes it is best not to ask others or even yourself "what enneagram type am I?!?!?" because that might get confusing).
    You are so arbitrary.
