Type 6 – The Enneagram Loyal Realist | Karen Armstrong - Inside Out |
Sorry if you've read all these articles -- but I thought I'd throw in my suggestions with my opinions :)
oops posted twice :)
lol ... 6's are a real handful Kels .. The most doubtful, sceptical, chaotic and yet loyal bunch of people around. I know a few in this forum - and we're all pretty chaotic together.
A circle of trust, love and security is what completes a 6 imo.
It seems almost every INFJ fights a battle of fear and courage at least once in their life and probably for most of it..
They fight a battle of trust and self protection.
They seek to connect, but do so with caution.
Type 6 is dichotomy personified.
Type 6 is the natural intuitive.
It seems a natural fit.. Although type 4 seems to be the most correlated to INFJ .. Type 6's and 4's are the most common types to mistype as each other.
After recent study, I realized that I wasn't self-doubting early on because all my needs were being met --- those of having a strong authority to relate to [my sheltered home life], and love [from both my parents], which gave me strong feelings of security - which basically meant that I had lived most of my life as a healthy 6 with the positive traits of 9 as I had inner peace.
The accident and emotional abuse during my marriage took that peace away and I plummeted to the unhealthiest levels of a 6 and started taking on traits of the 3.
The 6 chaos is pretty common. None of the 6's I talk to ever seem to be sure about themselves - yet, they'd be sure of being unsure if you know what I mean. They'd be so sure in their scepticism that they'd end up doubting doubt itself. Assurance is a requirement of the 6 - and many 6's won't even admit to that.
Also, 6's are very likely to mistype as 2's :) The first article I shared has some suggestions why.
