    Default Ask an e2!

    A general Q&A thread for e2s. All e2s are welcome to answer questions.

    And I guess it's inflation, but damn it's hard to value my two cents

    I have a question for male 2s.

    Is society's expactation of masculine behavior in many ways opposite your motivations? Do you find yourself having to behave in a way that does not really ring true to yourself deep down due to gender roles?

    That's actually two questions but really the same idea. Lol. So thanks to any who answer.

    As a So 2, how important is it for you to be seen as loving?

    And how would you feel/react if you believed you had helped someone out in the past and when you asked them for help they would not give you any?

    I'm indifferent to a stranger's perception of me, but the closer I am to someone, the more I would want them to understand that I'm loving (regardless of what I appear to be). To reword it, it isn't important to me what people think when they judge my book by its cover, but if you're halfway through the damn thing and haven't picked up that all I want is a thank you, it'd frustrate me.

    It wouldn't be a case of me believing I helped someone out, I either did or I didn't. There's always a receipt when you make a transaction. I personally would really struggle to ask for help to begin with unless I absolutely knew that it was fair within the context of our relationship and repport, to be denied of that for no good reason would really hurt me. It'd give me the sense that I'm unimportant, bothersome, and easy, which is exactly the kind of shame and insult that makes me not want to ask in the first place.

    And I guess it's inflation, but damn it's hard to value my two cents

    Are any of you Twos male? I read it's the least common type for men.

    I'm not male but I think the hang up some people have of "Men provide, women stay at home" can easily be fueled by an e2 mindset. Sure there's the e1 interpretation of it "because right is right and wrong is wrong", but I don't think that's as common as the e2 "because what else is a man to do if not contribute".
