RESOURCES FOR TYPE FIVE - THE INVESTIGATOR
Enneagram wings are the types that are on either side of your main type. You are still your main enneagram type but wings give a bit of influence to your type; it’s part of what makes you unique from all the others in your type. Generally, you have one wing that is more dominant than the other which is why people refer to themselves by their main type and dominant wing (such as 5w6).⠀ ⠀
5w4 “The Iconoclast”
The 4 wing causes this type of 5 to be a bit more creative and sensitive. 5w4’s tend to be more self-absorbed, independant, and bit more empathetic. They want to be competent with a touch of wanting to be authentic. ⠀
5w6 “The Problem Solver”
The 6 wing causes this type of 5 to be a bit more cautious and social. 5w6’s tend to be more anxious, skeptical, and loyal. They want to be competent with a touch of wanting to be safe.
