Which MBTI type are helpers? (Enneagram 2)

The Helper

This man is an example of a helper

Helper: “Someone who assists in the fullfillment of a need for a certain purpose.”

As you are well aware, the helper is the second enneagram type. The helper’s aim in life is to have good relationships established with all people that they know by assisting others in their life. Helpers can be both ENFJ and ESFJ, however they are most commonly known to be ENFJ after many of the tests that have been done.

Helpers are far more likely to be extroverts- they focus on the people around them and they assist them in whatever they are doing. For instance, super heroes will adventure around the city, using their extroversion to look for people to help out, and ultimately become friends with.

Intuitive people will think about how they can stretch their expectations and think outside the box to help out over people. They do things that aren’t necessarily logical in order to help others out.

Feelers are way more like to be helpers than thinkers. This is because they think about how other people are feeling. They help out people they sense aren’t feeling well and they are sensitive as to what others think of them.

Judgers are more likely to be helpers than perceivers. This is because they make “goals” in their heads. Their goals are of what they should do to make others like them. They immediately think of helping others out. However, perceivers are less future-orientated and they prefer to live in the moment. This makes judgers more likely to be helpers.

    Thank you so much for your statement: “… perceivers are less future-orientated and they prefer to live in the moment. This makes judgers more likely to be helpers.”

    This statement clears up so much confusion. I know a feeler who is a perceiver. While a feeler does show caring for others, a feeler-perceiver would not necessarily “help” others. This helps lower my expectations toward perceivers when I want their help.
