    I'm pretty sure it's not the fact that they're a six. It may be a mix of enneagram types and MBTI. I'm a 6, but I'm also an INTJ. Generally I write very little.

    This was very interesting and I definitely agree with you. However, the thing that struck me the most was how beautifully this was written. Here, have a complimentary internet e-donut. Seriously, though, that was fantastic. I don't know what your profession is, or if you already do write, but if not, you should definitely consider writing.

The structure of this realization is nestled within the framework of the enneagram and its articulation of the states of integration and disintegration. The heart of this matter is that I have realized certain mindsets that indicate disintegration as well as certain meditative focuses that nurture integration. Each of these I see in the context of the integration/disintegration dichotomy (in my case, as a 6w5) as well as a descriptive, metaphorical psychological landscape that I would like to call the “lake of lacunae.”

    Too much N-type talking, confusing me with all the letters and N-talk (even though I can read a lot and enjoy reading). Please simplify what your trying to say? =)

    Fantastic article. That's all I can really say. Very insightful.

    Would any of you be able to give me an example of how this theory should be applied in our daily lives?

    (Retreating to the familiar) is safe, but that’s not what (life’s about). Fear and worry drive 6s to disintegrate in the familiar, whereas a sense of adventure which requires embracing uncertainty and the dynamism of the moment leads to fulfillment and growth.

    A practical example? Stop being afraid and stop worrying about stuff that doesn’t matter.

    Always, always been the hardest thing for me to do. Can't say I've actually ever done it, tbh.

    I have found that much fear, anxiety and worry is bodily in nature. Do you see where your feelings come from? Do they originate from a cramped up, locked down sort of tension? Yoga (asanas, pranayama and meditation (samyama)) can help identify and release these things. It worked for me.

    ^--thank you for explaining/simplifying it down. :D

    I can totally relate, but if it doesn't make sense to me then I will worry and be afraid. If I feel that it is my duty, then I can almost do anything that I know how to do and overcome it with thinking critically. Also, funny how you say afraid of adventures, I like playing adventure video games, but dislike doing it irl. lol...

    Another way to think of it is that the "adventure" is total freedom. In such a state, the mind is free to do whatever it chooses, rather than retreat to whatever analytical methods and systems we use as a security blanket.

    I find this completely amazing! The way you have detailed your chain of thought and influences leaves no loose threads only a winding road to true logic. I do the exact same things all the time without being able to give an explanation as to why. I know myself but to actual explain it outside of my head and have it understood would never happen. Well Done
