This post will compare the multiple differences between 125, 126 and 127 tritypes.

The 3 tritypes concerned with having ONE and TWO fixes (125, 126 and 127) display those behavioral and psychological patterns :

• Anger and Pride combine into an very conscience-driven, educational character. People with this combination want to make a difference in the lives of others in ways that will ensure close relational links and show to people an altruistic side of their personality at all times;

• Double Compliant stance ; the need to adhere to external and internalized rules, social conducts and do what's expected of them is amplified;

• Patronizing, hesitant, pleasing energy;

• Half masculine (ONE) and feminine (TWO) energy;

• The rule-abiding, righteous and critical ONE is in conflict with the relationship-oriented and intimacy-seeking TWO;

• There's a dichotomy between the ONE tendency to be self-critical and to be hard on themselves and the TWO need to be liked and the tendency to shapeshift in order to meet other's needs;

• Most likely combination to be considered educational, who want to help other in a predetermined structure;

Differences Between Archetypes :

Anxiety Management

• 125s more removed from their environment than the other two ONE + TWO combinations. They manage their anxiety stemming from not being competent enough by retreating into their private world and establishing barriers;

• 126s are very devoted to their tasks and put their anxiety at ease by getting their goals met and by finding sure-fire ways to maintain harmony and structure in their environment. This tritype shows its anxiety the most out of the three ONE + TWO combinations;

• 127s deny their anxiety by focusing on the positive and anticipating fun and new ways to maintain and enhance group harmony with good foundations;

Primary Strengths

• 126s forget their own needs and overfocus on other's. They can appear nosy, controlling and nagging because of their overwhelming presence they can give to people when trying to help and educate others. They can also feel self-righteous and militant about their values and causes which can irk some people. This archetype can also become too anxious and self-conscious about its own impact on their environment, constantly ajusting itself in order to meet internal and external standards, which can become exhausting for them;
