    This explains so much…like why babies usually fall asleep on me. :) And in high school, why I could be friends with anyone, in any ‘group’, and even the really tough guys would be gentle with me and not use hard language around me. I never, ever asked them not to, they just treated me like a princess, and would open up and talk with me about almost anything.

    I’ve moved away from that place, in the stress of becoming an adult, and a mother. I’m so, so grateful to be rediscovering this about myself, and finding ways to let this rebloom in my life.

    Thank you Carol. I have a type 3 spouse who tends to make me feel guilty and I sometimes jump from reading a magazine when he comes home because I don’t want him to think I am being lazy. This has been pointed out to me by others and they ask me why I do it. I guess I was brought up by a Dad that was working all the time and he made me and my siblings feel bad if we were sick and wanted to stay home from school. I do feel that I have tried to be more agressive in life, but it has always felt uncomfortable to me, but I thought if I wasn’t willing to stand up for myself, I would be perceived as weak. I am so greatful to you and I appreciate that your daughter Anne is able to share a lot with us about how she is as a type 2. I am so looking forward to the event in Aug. I wish it were sooner, as I can’t wait, with my sister to meet all of you. Jan

    I wonder how much of an overlap exists between the typical Type 2 and “the highly sensitive” person (studied by Rue Hass)? Because I prefer your label to hers. It’s so much easier to not feel like a freak of nature when you can think of yourself as making up roughly a quarter of the general population, than when you’re walking around with the label “highly sensitive” all the time.

    In one sense, though, Type 2 women have it the easiest. Of all the feminine expressions of the 4 types, ours is probably the one in greatest compliance with the societal ideal of traditional femininity. We’re not too wild. Not too aggressive. Not too critical. No. Instead, we’re sort of invisible, yet hyper-aware of everyone else’s feelings and energy.

    Thank you, Carol, for reminding us of our gifts. It’s easy to forget that the Type 2 nature even *can* be a gift when it often causes so much overwhelm, lol.

      Someone asked a similar question, referring to Elaine Aron’s Highly Sensitive Persons work, and many of us type twos shared that we see ourselves as highly sensitive. I think a couple of type fours did, too.

      But I don’t think being highly sensitive makes one a freak of nature, and neither does Elaine Aron, in her work. She calls us the priestly advisors (and the canaries in the mines) which would mean we are or should be highly valued :).

      Thanks, Carol, for validating who we are, and for reminding us that we don’t have to figure out the details of being a type two.

        Jeanine, I hope I didn’t come off as putting all Type 2′s and/or highly sensitive people into the “freak of nature” category. That was just my prevailing feeling as a kid, feeling like no one really *got* me. My first exposure to The Highly Sensitive paradigm also came through Elaine Aron’s groundbreaking book (which my mom gave me when I was 16) :) I only used Rue Hass as an example because she incorporates Aron’s work into her own EFT practice, and I figured, since Carol also does EFT, that readers of this blog might be more familiar with a fellow EFT expert.

        Thanks for mentioning Aron, though — I think a re-read of her book is definitely in order :) I enjoyed perusing your blog, as well. You are a beautiful example of a Type 2 woman embodying her truth.

    I want to share something I’ve discovered. For the longest time I would tell my children all I want is Peace. Recently, I was asked to prepare a 10 minute talk on one of the fruits of the Spirit. I chose Peace. When I was studying, I found out that “Shalom,” the Hebrew word for Peace, is considered to be one of the holy names of God. The Bible says if we accept Him, our bodies become the temple of God. God lives in us. This made me realize that I already had Peace, I just didn’t recognize it and acknowledge it. Peace is not something that people or circumstances can give us, it is indwelling.

    Thank you so much for this video and last night’s radio show. As I learn more and more about my nature, I am surprised at how much I was already intuitively grasping before I ever heard about energy types. Now it just seems so much clearer, like I wiped a film off my glasses.

    I’m so glad Carol is doing this series. My v. aggressive T3 father would constantly berate me for being “too sensitive” which he equated with “weak and backward.” He would constantly bring up these epithets and lecture me on the need to “be strong” and assertive, because if I wasn’t, I would be considered a “patsy,” used and abused and “unsuccessful” my entire life. I don’t have to tell you what decades of trying to be a hard-driving T3 was like. I think the only reason I was able to pull it off as long as I did was because I was drawing heavily on my secondary T1 ability to adapt. But I constantly felt like a fraud and hated the person I’d become. Needless to say, 16 years ago I developed an almost-fatal disease, from which, tho, I was mercifully and miraculously healed. Wake up call! I already knew the outward symptoms were just indicators of the real dis-ease, which was spiritual in nature. The journey out of this began when I found Aron’s work on the HSP. It provided information and explanations, but I still felt directionless and odd and out of place, resigned that life was “destined” to be difficult for the HSP. I continued searching.

    I discovered DYT last Sept., shortly after what should have been a fatal car crash but–also miraculously–wasn’t. Finally–something that
    provided not only info & affirmations, but a practical and intuitive PLAN (am I a T2 or what!) on how to actually love and live one’s truth physically and spiritually. Every day I shed a little bit more of my father, and bring a little bit more of the real me to the fore. I won’t say it’s not challenging to peel back these onion layers and root out these habits, but what a huge relief to finally know it’s OK to be me, and that IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE HARD. At last I can begin sharing my real gifts with others instead of struggling to be someone I’m not, trying to give the world something I was never meant to give. I know y’all know what I’m talkin’ ’bout! LOL

    This was one of the reasons that I knew I was a type 2. I’ve often had people tell me that they feel very calm and peaceful around me. I could never quite figure out why others would feel that way. Thanks for helping me to understand myself better.

  • Debbie

    This was so validating. Thank you so much Carol. I have a question as to how to deal with people who talk so much and my energy gets so drained. I have a friend who is a T1 and she is so bubbly and fun but I can only be around her for about a half an hour before I am ready for a nap. She talks non stop and asks so many questions that I cannot keep up. I end up feeling like there is something wrong with me that I cannot keep up with her. Why do I feel the need to keep up with her and why does she not realize that she is draining my energy? I have been just feeling bad about myself because I don’t seem to have the energy level that the other type’s have.

      Debbie, I have this problem with my daughter. I’m new to the four types, but it wounds like I’m a T2 and my daughter a T1. I’m a stay at home mom, and on days that she’s home from school I am ready for bed by 10 AM. She talks to me nonstop, and is always by my side. It’s been very hard. I’ve had a lot of success tapping on my feelings of being used, having to cater to her constantly, feeling drained by her, etc. It was mostly coming from my perception of her, not her actual bubbliness and (intense!) sociability. More is in order, definately, but the tapping has helped tremendously. Good luck!
