This movement represents how you are likely to act out if you are under increased stress and pressure or when you feel you are not in control of the situation

Wing(s) Point Resource

WINGS: The two types to either side of your core type are commonly referred to as wings. Wings can act as a resource at any time of life and for any reason. Wings are one of the ways the Enneagram can explain and understand the complexities of personality, and why 2 people from the same core type can "look" very different. Enneagram wings can influence thinking and behavior because an individual  may  identify with some of the core motivations of these adjacent types, but not always apparent. Again, often happening below your consciousness until you become aware of these influences. Recognizing how each  wing(s) may be influencing you specifically,  can help you avoid certain weaknesses or lean into that types strengths. Resourcing is intended to provide your type with something  your core type is lacking or needing.
