    Wing disintegrating while main enneagram is not

    Each enneagram integrates and disintegrates in its own way, but I was wondering how this interacts with a person's wing. In particular, if a person's main enneatype is doing well, is it possible that the wing is facing problems? How would that manifest itself, do wings disintegrate in the same way as main ennatypes do?

    What happens if a person does a good job developing the main enneatype but neglects a wing, can wings disintegrate even as the main enneatype integrates?

    This seems unlikely to me, since integration mostly = becoming an all around more psychologically healthy person with fewer hangups. Wings are just flavors to the types. Your core dilemnas are going to be the same regardless of wing, so I think it's a non-issue.

    I feel like I do manifest some of the unhealthy traits of my wing, but it's not a huge issue in my life. When I make myself stop, it feels good, but it's not like life-changing. So basically, "integration" of the wing doesn't have the same power as is integrating of the main type... it wouldn't really be called integration, rather just like "letting it go" or something haha.
    That's my opinion anyway.

    Same, I find my BOTH my wings have tendencies to move to their connecting points under varying types of stress. It's part of the structure of the types in question, and inasmuch as your wings are a part of you, so too are their structures.

    It's not the same as true disintegration, though, which I have also experienced. That's a phenomenon in its own right.
