  1. [Enneagram Type 6] Transition from phobic to counterphobic?

    Type 6 Forum - The Loyalist
    Hi all, I'm a sx-6 with mostly phobic tendencies, but last year an enneagram expert told me, "I would bet that within the next five years you'll be counterphobic." I assume she said this because I'm a sexual instinctive type. I have been unable to find any postings from people who have...
  2. [Enneagram Type 6] Phobic-counterphobic survey

    Type 6 Forum - The Loyalist
    I'm theorizing about the Enneagram and I'm interested in the phobic-counterphobic spectrum you guys have. Which are you more, and how do both look like in real-life situations? I also want to find out if being more of one or the other affects if you are on the introverted or extraverted edge...
  3. (Video) Help a poor, confused soul figure out their Enneagram type!

    Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    Hi everyone! I typed myself as a phobic 6w5, but I was reading an article the other day and now I'm confused again... Lol, I don't know what's wrong with me but I don't think I'm a very self-aware individual. Bear with me, this video is kind of long (you don't even have to watch it all) but if...
  4. [Enneagram Type 6] Counterphobic/phobic 6w5/6w7 descriptions?

    Type 6 Forum - The Loyalist
    I believe I've hunted the threads for a while, but I can't seem to find an actual breakdown. Most descriptions of the wings or 6 in general are phobic, unless specifically noted as counterphobic, where it says they act like an 8, etc. It seems like there are at least 4 different types of 6's...
  5. Why counter-phobic 6s get confused with 8s?

    Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    Here's the explanation I came up with: An eight's basic desire is control which in a way requires some independence. While sixes want someone trustworthy, someone who they can rely when they need them the most, someone who they can depend on. So a six who is facing their basic fear, may try...
  6. [Enneagram Type 6] How to appease a counterphobic 6w5...

    Type 6 Forum - The Loyalist
    I am facing the wrath of a counterphobic 6/5 and have no idea what to do. It seems like he may snap soon and has decided to focus most of his wrath upon me. Sixes are full of contradictions, and this guy is no exception. Here is a little bit of background on him: This 6 put on a façade of 9...
