I'm a Two.

Have you guys ever taken an Enneagram test?

I'm a Two.

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.
  • Basic Fear: Of being unwanted, unworthy of being loved
  • Basic Desire: To feel loved
How to Get Along with Me
  • Tell me that you appreciate me. Be specific.
  • download movies best free download movies ang cheap cigarettes very nice download mp3 best mp3 free buy cialis online
  • Share fun times with me.
  • Take an interest in my problems, though I will probably try to focus on yours.
  • Let me know that I am important and special to you.
  • Be gentle if you decide to criticize me.
    In Intimate Relationships
  • Reassure me that I am interesting to you.
  • Reassure me often that you love me.
  • Tell me I'm attractive and that you're glad to be seen with me.
What I Like About Being a Two
  • being able to relate easily to people and to make friends
  • knowing what people need and being able to make their lives better
  • being generous, caring, and warm
  • being sensitive to and perceptive about others' feelings
  • being enthusiastic and fun-loving, and having a good sense of humor
What's Hard About Being a Two
  • not being able to say no
  • having low self-esteem
  • feeling drained from overdoing for others
  • not doing things I really like to do for myself for fear of being selfish
  • criticizing myself for not feeling as loving as I think I should
  • being upset that others don't tune in to me as much as I tune in to them
  • working so hard to be tactful and considerate that I suppress my real feelings
I cannot tell you how perfectly this describes me. I am sure that anyone reading this who knows me is giggling, and nodding, because this is SO. ME. Just yesterday I texted two of my friends to make sure they knew I loved them.

Just thought I'd share these today. I love things like this. I love figuring out I'm not alone in the world or with my feelings. I want to know what number you are!

You can take the test here and get a detailed description of results here.

I'm a 4, with 2 as my second nearest personality. Maybe I should retake the test though, I took it years ago and I may have changed!

Bear is a five. I cannot remember what that means, except that I like thinking, and calling things by their right names (as in Latin, if I can remember).

Happy twoness to you!

Blessings and Bear hugs!

You are definitely a Helper!

My types are all bunched quite close together. Type 5 (Thinker) and Type 9 (Peacemaker) are most predominant. I've always been a Peacemaker, and lately, I've been transitioning more into a Thinker. Very interesting test.
