Striving to Feel Connected (Enneagram Type Two)

In this episode of the Awareness to Action Enneagram podcast, Mario Sikora, María José Munita and Seth "Creek" Creekmore are joined by Lindsey Marks, co-host of Fathoms podcast, to talk about Enneagram Type Two, “Striving to Feel Connected.” Drawing from her personal experience as a Type Two, Lindsey shares how she connects with people and why she believes love is the answer to everything. She also discusses misconceptions about being a Type Two  as well as her blind spots.

“There’s several things that Twos do that not only help other people, but make you feel connected with them.” -María José [10:22]

“But I think particularly for Twos, just this wholehearted commitment to compassion, empathy and this belief that if you just love people, everything can be healed. The whole world can change.” -Lindsey [14:33]

“The thing I always go back to when I’m working with Twos is just let’s go back to this conversation about boundaries. Let’s make sure we’re setting effective, skillful boundaries. And boundaries are not walls.” -Mario [30:06]

“For all listening, this is not the complete guide to Two-ness. And none of these episodes are complete guides to how to understand insert-type-here. We’ll be talking about the instinctual biases, the subtypes, all of those sort of things in episodes to come, so consider this an appetizer to the types.” -Creek [35:09]
