Hello Jan:
I think that part of the problem is the dogmatic assertion that ones's Ennea type is absolute, and " that's just the way it is ! " Looking at the styles, you can see that all sorts of strange variants are quite possible, and in deed happen in real life. If we worked together, people would at first, would assume that we are pretty much of the same type because we would act like.... Bur surprise, our motivations are quite different! ( E 1= Idiosyncratic & Conscientious, vs E 3= Serious & Inventive )

As to the 2W1 problem, my wife as a teacher really does match Riso's 2W1 profile. As well she should, since it is based on elementray teachers! In real life these teachers have strong middling Aggressive Style. Yes, these 2W1s want to make others happy and comfortable, but they also need to do their job. My wife, and other 2W1s like her, are more orderly & organized.... And, yes, they do their duty ( not always without compliant however! ) From what you write, I think it quite possible that our respective 2W1s have a somewhat different style arrangement, or some of the styles are stronger or weaker...?
