This is a summary of the characteristics of the Enneagram Type 2 personality (The Helper/Giver) from our Wednesday night discussions. Join us for the next one!
Type Two in Brief (from http://www.enneagraminstitute.com/typetwo.asp)
Twos are empathetic, sincere, and warm-hearted. They are friendly, generous, and self-sacrificing, but can also be sentimental, flattering, and people-pleasing. They are well-meaning and driven to be close to others, but can slip into doing things for others in order to be needed. They typically have problems with possessiveness and with acknowledging their own needs. At their Best: unselfish and altruistic, they have unconditional love for others.
