    Default No love for type 2's?

    Does anyone get the feeling that there aren't a lot of type 2's around? And I'm not only talking about this site or any other in particular, but in real life? I mean, we know that they're around, but I get the feeling that many of them get overlooked for other more "interesting" types. The reason I bring this up is because I've taken to watching movies a lot nowadays and I find that most 2's (which there are hardly any) either end up being unimportant side characters or, most often, obsessive villains. When was the last time we saw a type 2 as a main character or making the headlines? Does anyone else feel the same way? I feel as though it's a very underrepresented type in this day and age.

    Hmmm... I think there are plenty of 2s in my real life. Both my mom and my sis have a 2-wing, and I'm pretty sure one of my friends is a 2.

    As for fictional characters, I think there are a lot of 2s in the hero role? (The Don't-worry-I-will-save-you-all type?)

    Yes, you don't seem to see many 2s around, though I have seen some 2 wings. I do remember talking to a member here that was a 2w1, though it was a while ago and I can't remember who it was... I myself am a 1w2. Interestingly I took a test today and came out with 2w1.

    Ref: The Enneagram Blogspot
    MBTI Equivalents for type 2 -
    More Common:
    ESFJ "The Helper" - Fosters warmth and efficiency to get self and others to get a job done.
    ISFJ "The Nurturer" - Sympathetic traditionalists quietly self-sacrificing to get a job done.
    ESFP "The Joker" - Sympathetic socialites generously meeting needs in a fun, lively way.
    ENFJ "The Sage" - Able communicators who facilitate interpersonal sensitivity.
    ENFP "The Visionary" - Love the fluid and changing, expressing creativity and charisma.

    Quite Common:
    INFP "The Dreamer" - Desire their world to be in line with their inner ideal vision.
    We do have very few ESFJs, ISFJs, ESFPs and ENFJs on the forum, come to think of it.

    There's a lot of speculation going on in this thread.
    Any hard data?
