Misidentification: 7 vs. 9

The Wings of Enneagram 3

3wings1It’s time for another wings distinction video! ¬†I’ve been somewhat surprised by the large amount of views on these videos in particular– it seems that people really want to know more about each Enneagram type’s two main varieties! ¬†I’m really glad to see that, honestly, as I think one of the biggest mistakes one can make with the Enneagram is to be too shallow– learning about the¬†specific variety of a core type that you are can be very, very helpful to growth! ¬†Especially when it comes to using our knowledge of the Enneagram to better understand and interact with others, it’s kind of big deal to get the specific nuances of our loved ones right! ¬†Wing is a big part of that, and I’m excited to continue exploring it here.

To follow the order of my previous posts, The Achiever is up nextР3w2 vs 3w4!  Check it out, and as always let me know if you have questions or insight to share.  Final note: I realized I have been covering a lot of heart type material lately, so will be switching gears for my next Misidentification video.  You can stay tuned by following me here or on Instagram, Facebook or Youtube!

Misidentification 2 VS 4

Aaand I’m back with a video, yay! ¬†If you’ve ever wondered about some of the differences between the Helper and the Individualist, this is for you. ¬†Feel free to drop me a line if you have thoughts or questions!

One thing I did want to expand a bit on, is a component that I mention in the video: 4’s Reactivity vs. 2’s Compliance. ¬†It’s important to note that these traits are not opposites, which is why I included the graphic below in my video.

2vs4comp

Across the Enneagram, we see three different conflict styles: Reactive (4, 6, 8), Reframing (2, 7, 9) and Competency (1, 3, 5).  In another trait triangle, we see three different ways of interacting with the world: Aggressive (3, 7, 8), Compliant (1, 2, 6) and Withdrawn (4, 5, 9). Because these traits come in groups of three, combining them can shed a lot of insight on the differences between Enneagam types!

When we look at 2, we see that it is a Reframing and Compliant type.

When we look at 4, we see that it is a Reactive and Withdrawn type.

This gives us a spectacular example, because these types are different on¬†both fronts! ¬†I think I’ll have to write more on this topic in another post, and how it can be an excellent tool to prevent mistyping. ¬†For now, I hope this helps to explain my use of these terms. ūüôā

Thanks friends, see you next time as I cover the wings of The Achiever!

The Wings of Enneagram 2

Today I’m talking about the wings of the Helper and how to discern between the two, both in regards to motivation¬†and from an experience standpoint. ¬†Check it out, and feel free to let me know whether this rings true for you– if you¬†are a two, or even if you have someone in your life who is!

Check back in a week or so, for my next misidentification video too!  You can also stay up to speed with my work by following on Instagram or FacebookРas always feel free to reach out at Enneagramgirl@yahoo.com with questions or comments!

The Wings of Enneagram 1

Hey friends! ¬†I’ve decided to create some “shorts” to fill in the time (that I am slowly editing) between my longer videos, and I realized that perfect bite-sized topic is¬†wings. ¬†As usual, I’ll start from the beginning with 1, the Reformer. ¬†Check it out, and watch for more short videos addressing other wing differences in the future! ūüôā

Video: 6 vs. 9

Hey Enneagram friends! ¬†After quite the gap, I’ve finally posted another YouTube Enneagram Girl video, this time examining some recent nuances I’ve noticed about misidentification¬†between 6 and 9! ¬†I touch on some of the differences, similarities, health paths and even venture into correlation with MBTI a bit! ūüėČ

Check it out, and feel free to ask questions if you have any!  I hope to be creating more and more videos in the months to come, so keep an eye out.
