Enneagram, Type 2, also known as “The Helper” has a core fear of being unwanted and unloved. They are motivated to avoid the realization of both. But what happens when the core fear has been realized over and over, what then?
Enneagram Type 2’s are also incredible empaths. They tend to absorb the pain of others often to their own detriment. How do we help people who identify as enneagram type 2’s, especially in the presence of trauma? What do Enneagram Type 2’s need from people who love them?
Wednesdays With Watson creator, Amy Watson represents the type 2. Crissy Loughridge, season 3 co-host, is honest and bold in her questioning with the goal being for those who find themselves in similar situations to understand their worthiness and moreover for those who love type 2’s to provide informed help to their friends and loved ones.
Karissa Harrison is Amy’s enneagram coach and provides a free assessment link on her website, you can find that free assessment here.
We are spending time on this personality framework and pairing it with trauma and loss in an effort to bring awareness to the importance of what motivates us and drives us, whether or not trauma is present. When we are aware of how we are made, we can process pain and trauma effectively. Understanding and awareness also provides opportunities to grow, and live in community with those who are not made like us, but who can help us operate as the best versions of ourselves.
How have enneagram 2’s walked through Covid-19? This interview addresses how type 2’s are processing the current state of the world, including non pandemic related global trauma.
This episode provides both healthy ways and unhealthy ways enneagram type 2’s walk through the repercussions of trauma. What do enneagram type 2’s want their family and friends to know? We address that too in this episode.
