About the Enneagram –

The Enneagram is a system of personality grouping that explains patterns and management of emotion for each category. This model explains nine personality types and is visualized by a nine-point diagram that connects each type. Enneagram points out how each person is unique and views the world in their own way, and how they behave in unique ways. By describing the habits of a personality, people can learn more about themselves and how to better communicate with others and navigate the world. The Enneagram can be beneficial in describing more information about relationships, career development, spiritual growth, and personal development. I’ve been obsessed with studying Enneagram lately. I love having a better understanding of my inner world and have a little window into those around me. 

About the Enneagram Symbol –

The Enneagram is represented by a geometric symbol with nine points. On the outer circle, there are nine points, which represent the nine personality types. There is a triangle on the inside that connects points 3, 6, and 9. There is also a hexagonal shape that connects the other points. The types on either side of the core personality are called “wings.” These wings relate the personality types that people can transition into. Most people strongly identify with both wings in addition to their core Enneagram. 

The basic types are connected by two lines to two other basic types. For example, type 4 is connected to Types 1 and 7. The connecting lines show how each core type has required strengths and also struggles with other challenges through supporting personality types. The importance of the connecting lines separates the Enneagram test from other personality tests by demonstrating how dynamic and changeable personalities can be.

Enneagram Type 2: The Giver –

I am a Type 2, which is also known as the Giver. Some of the more crucial characteristics that us Type 2s have are: great team player, gentle, caregiver, nurturing, approachable, kind, and activist. Do any of these characteristics sound familiar? Find out if you’re a Type 2 like I am by taking the test here! https://www.truity.com/test/enneagram-personality-test

What I learned about my type –

Givers value emotional intimacy, quality time with loved ones, and a shared sense of empathy. These personalities find helping others and social activism to be a core value, as well as kindness and empathy. Givers tend to put others before themselves. They are, by nature, intuitive to others’ emotions and are usually perceived to be a loyal companion. Givers are typically popular and are involved in a variety of social groups. 

You can recognize a Type 2 from his or her desire to give advice or help others. People are drawn to Givers because of their warm personalities and approachability. Givers believe that taking care of loved ones is important, and they try to make them feel valued. 

Like any other personality type, Type 2s can express extremes of their personalities and be unhealthy. At healthy levels, Givers are selfless who are satisfied by putting others before themselves. Givers have a great understanding of empathy, as this is one of the highest distinctive characteristics. They have a strong sense of self-worth and are able to teach others to learn the same. 

At average levels, Givers search for ways to feel important by taking care of others, and are fulfilled by gratitude. By constantly tending to others’ needs, Givers can become burnt out. They are hypersensitive and need approval from those they care for. Type 2s are also known to give compliments to gain acceptance. 

At unhealthy levels, Type 2s can become clingy in relationships after trying to take control. Givers can express their manipulative side by blaming others, or base their worth on others’ opinions. They sometimes act as a victim to get sympathy and a sense of self-worth. 

All personality types should be aware of unhealthy habits and how to avoid them. A popular habit that Givers can take up is caring too much about others and not enough about yourself. Find that perfect balance! I know I definitely struggle with this! 

Type 2 Work Ethic

People want to work with Type 2s because they are committed, understanding, and creative. They find a great deal of pride in their work and tend to take projects seriously. They love to be in control because they can often be perfectionists! Givers love working with people and are able to develop strong interpersonal relationships. 

Some popular careers for Type 2s are positions as a social worker, special education teacher, nurse, minister, police or detective, or non-profit work. Givers will thrive in any career where they can care for others and create relationships. I love being able to create and brainstorm– it’s just who I am!
