Go back and read Genesis carefully. Genesis 1 and Genesis 2 are two different Creation stories. Nor can we erroneously say Genesis 2 is a more detailed description of Genesis 1, for it clearly emphasizes the second Creation was a consequence of the first (the key is Genesis 2: 5-6). The difference between “earth” and “ground” is important here.
Furthermore, the first “man” was invested with full authority and dominion to rule…actual leadership, but the second man was only invested with the task of “naming”. A difference like day and night.
I put quotes because it does not literally mean days, earth, dust etc…but is metaphorical.
I know the picture is so new that the first human instinct is to reject it. But do not rush into the default stance of obstinacy. Just take a deep breath, go back and read carefully, give it some time, reflect deeply, and if you allow the intuition to guide, the picture will slowly sink in. One step at a time.
