Relationship between type 2 and type 3

The altruistic and the chameleon

Samwise Gamgee (Lord of the Rings)
Mary Crawley (Downton Abbey)


2 is impressed by 3’s self-confidence, charisma, determination and ambition.
3 is attracted by 2’s kindness, generosity, attention and affection.
They are often both optimistic, sociable, energetic, hard working and love seeing all of this in the other.

Points where to be careful

Both types, though they may not always be aware of it, are very conscious of their image and have a strong need for validation to feed their energy. 2 needs to feel important and loved by his partner in order to continue acting positively, while 3 needs to feel that everyone around him is proud of his accomplishments.
2 can get annoyed that his attention towards 3 isn’t enough for him to feel good.
