    There seriously was no e2 input before? </3

    I'll become a resident of this thread, a lot of my general favourites in life are 2w3.

    Remembered another quote of a 2, it went like this:

    "Erase all the worries hidden behind your smile, until something good happens."

    I rephrase the quote to restore the value of these characters:

    "The evil queens are the princesses that saved everyone but themselves."

    I read this quote in a gender neutral ego dystonic voice as "never saved by themselves". It doesn't have to imply a male figure imo; the savior could be anyone or anything: their closest friends, their family, their social milieu, and finally themselves, which for 2s is in the key of standing up for their own needs instead of continuing to be in the service of others.

    Let go of a precise outcome and love all. Act when you need to for a goal, but then let go and enjoy all the blessings in your day!

    That depends on their place on the spectrum of health levels and - where exactly have they been universally described like this?

    I don't think that they are so unpopular as well. Just in theory, but not in real life Quite the contrary is the case, given that their greatest talent and drive is making others love them. Their entire life revolves around interpersonal compassion. Quick test: Which enneagram type would come to mind when asking: "Who would win a popularity contest at school?" E2>E7>E3>E6>E9>E8>E1>E4>E5.

    Least understood yes, since this type has been pigeonholed quickly as the mom or narcissist as you pinpointed it. The true narcissist is E3 though. As an awesome 3 myself I can write you an entire essay about that (case in point), and I gladly shoulder this cross - just for the sake of having an image to portray That differs quite from a 2 who would outsource their "image" a lot more.
