Type 2
The Nurturing Supporter

Type 2s are people who see the world through relationships and define themselves through their service to others. They may be selfless, loving, and giving; or dependent, prideful, and manipulative.

What drives a Type 2 to think, feel, and behave in particular ways?

Core Fear:

  • Being rejected and unwanted, being thought worthless, needy, inconsequential, dispensable, or unworthy of love.

Core Desire:

  • Being appreciated, loved, and wanted.

Core Weakness:

  • Pride—denying their own needs and emotions while using their amazing intuition to discover and focus on the emotions and needs of others, confidently inserting their helpful support in hopes that others will say how grateful they are for the Type 2s thoughtful care.

Core Longing (message they long to hear):

  • “You are wanted and loved.”

Type 2s
At Their Best & At Their Worst

When we know, trust, and believe we are Christ's beloved child, we will live more freely in his grace at the healthier levels. When we believe we are on our own, we move down the levels of development.

Healthy 2s
Healthy 2s are loving, caring, and supportive of themselves and others. They do not need constant love and affection for what they have done for someone. Instead, healthy 2s know, believe, and trust that their worth comes from being Christ’s beloved child. It is here that a healthy 2 ultimately knows that their emotional, relational, and physical needs will always be taken care of by their Good Shepherd.

2s on Auto-Pilot
When 2s begin to forget that they are Christ’s beloved child (loved, wanted, completely cared for, and cherished), they begin to move into the average levels of development. Because the 2 has begun to forget how loved they are in Christ, they believe they have to earn love and affection through the approval of others by being a helper, supporter, and advice giver. They may even try to create dependencies, so others will constantly need and want them. In this average range, 2s hide their own needs from themselves and others in fear that their needs will threaten their relationships. They fear that their needs will inhibit others from giving them the affection and love they are so desperate to receive.

Unhealthy 2s
Their whole worth at this level revolves around others’ opinions of them and is not based on who they really are in Christ (his beloved child). In order to feel they are connected with others, they scan the horizon to see who needs help. When they see a need, they step in to help—even if it was not asked for or wanted. If they continue to feel unwanted or disconnected, they will scour every relationship to find even the littlest needs and go into overdrive to contribute. They will become martyr-like in order to be seen as the ultimate giver. The problem is that there is nothing they will not do in order to hear words of affirmation from others.

What is the Enneagram?

The Enneagram (Ennea=9, Gram=Diagram) is simply a map for self-discovery and personal growth. The diagram describes the 9 basic personality types based upon their unique ways of relating to the world.

The Enneagram accurately and clearly describes why you think, feel and behave in particular ways based upon your core fears and core desires. 

The power of the Enneagram is in its ability to harness and transform self-defeating behaviors into life-enhancing personal empowerment. The gift of the Enneagram is that through self-discovery, one can create and sustain meaningful and lasting relationships with others, God and themselves.
