1. Enjoy Solitude
One of the most helpful things for Threes is to learn to be alone – be it in nature or in their room - to slow down and find times of silence for contemplation and self-reflection.
2. Find a confidant
Having at least one close friend or a partner they can be vulnerable with is essential for Threes to open up. They need people to love them not just at their best, but also at their worst. It’s hard to go it all alone.
3. Reframe success
Being successful is not a bad thing in itself: The call for Threes is to find a definition that isn’t derived from the opinions of others but from their own values and desires.
4. Embrace failure
Not being first isn’t a euphemism for being a loser. Learning to view failures and setbacks as opportunities to grow instead of threats to their identity is crucial for Threes.
5. Start slowing down now
Nothing is easier for Threes than to push ’unimportant‘ issues to the back of their mind until it’s too late. But there is no need to wait until the car has hit the wall – the sooner they ask themselves the tough questions, the more they benefit from it.
