Episode 42 - The Giver-Observer Couple, Type 5 and Type 2

Intro/Outro: J Roes https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xN2TVpsIo34

Today we’re continuing our compatibility series with type 5 and 2 aka Albert Einstein and Dolly Parton. If you want to start where we actually talk about the Enneagram, fast forward to 19 minutes in. In this episode we talk about:

  • What it’s like to live with 5s and 2s and be in relationships with them

  • What attracts these two to each other

  • Some people on the internet talking about their 5 and 2 relationship experience

  • Challenging areas for the coupling and possible ways to catch each other in stress and work well together

  • Avarice and rejection

Note: we apologize if the mic sounds are imbalanced between us, we’re looking into updating our equipment over the next month so that our voices sound more equal
