268, 682, 826 The Rescuer
: By nature, this type wants to be in charge of their world
and are attracted to the noble cause
. They wish to shield others from harm
and challenge what is unjust. They want to know the rules to feel safe to break them. Their life mission is to track the needs of the vulnerable and take action on their behalf
. A true rescuer
, they are happiest when they can use their people skills and desire to protect others to help those that feel alone, desperate, and are in a crisis
. Their blind spot is that they can be so identified with the pride of knowing how to help others that they may give unsolicited advice or meddle in the affairs of others
. They over-give to others to be well-liked, which prevents a deeper connection to their true self. Their growing edge is to recognize that always rescuing others does not mean that they will always be liked and cared for in return, and that it may prevent them from learning how to care for themselves
. True protection comes from listening to higher guidance and knowing when to assist others and when to let them learn for themselves.
Direct and caring, this 6 is very supportive, dynamic
, and caring type. The struggle is knowing when the need to rescue interferes with their own well-being
. A true rescuer, this 6 is often mistaken for a 2 or 8
. This 6 needs to be caring and protective to feel secure, and they are helpful but uncomfortable taking the lead and would rather be the right hand to the powerful person
The core fears are of fear itself, danger
, being alone, cowardice
, submitting, deviance, uncertainty
, being targeted
, chaos, weakness
, being controlled
, humiliated, vulnarable
, at the mercy of injustice, worthless
, and inconsequential.
The strongest theme associated with the 268/682/826 is the need to rescue and protect
, but not necessarily put up with problems on an extended basis. It's a kind of in-the-moment problem solving that expects the other to deal with it and move on
: This type can be described as obsessively possessive and domineering
, taking on parental roles in most, if not all situations, and the Sx/So variant simply amplifies this smothering. Most people will find them "way too much
". For them, power is dead important
, though it will be more obvious to the observer than to the person themself. Both 2 and 6
leads to some issues with denial
. 2 main especially will "play innocent" while their power motive is seen by all those who suffered under their dominion.
Not necessarily all specific three types -- the 2, 6, and 8, in this case -- act synergistically. But, each of these at average to lower levels are very controlling in interpersonal relationships, very domineering (including the 6, especially with the Sx/So variant), highly reactive, and explosive when they feel they aren't getting back what they 'deserve'
