"After you land on your main Type, one of the first ways each Type can vary is through the Wings. The Wings are the two numbers directly next to your main Type's number on the Enneagram diagram. What this means is that we access the characteristics of the Type on either side of us while remaining our main Type." - Becoming Us by Beth and Jeff McCord
