  1. [Enneagram Type 6] Attention Sixes! Share your Health and Nutrition knowledge here!

    Type 6 Forum - The Loyalist
    As Sixes, we generally value the security of our physical health. I'm guilty of being somewhat of a health nut (or at least very knowledgable about health topics such as exercise and nutrition). I found out that I am gluten intolerant a couple years ago now, and ever since I've been forced to...
  2. disinterrating nine or a normal six?

    What's my personality type?
    Based on the countless things I am have been posting which is very sad, and thinking, as well as a few other things, I think I rounded my type to be of the following: A six, or a nine. I say a six be cause I have been timid when I was younger. Although I had a tendency from when I was younger...
  3. Chemistry Lesson: What Do You Get When You Mix A Little Bit of 6, With A Lot of 1?

    The answer is, a really tormented 6! Especially when the 6 has the 1 for a supervisor. And I'm the 6, by the way. And actually, the 1 isn't really my supervisor, he just kind of thinks he is, so he walks in and demands I do things that he wants done, even though he has no authority to do so...
  4. [Enneagram Type 6] What do you in times of severe emotional pain?

    Type 6 Forum - The Loyalist
    I know this thread is probably quite similar to others but I have several specific questions for the Sixes if that's alright. What if you are suffering from severe emotional pain? 1.) Do you focus more on your emotions or ignore them? 2.) Do you tend to trust more in confidants and people...
  5. [Enneagram Type 6] Type 6 and Dreams/Nightmares

    Type 6 Forum - The Loyalist
    What are some common themes in your dreams and nightmares? I've had trouble determining whether I'm a 6 or a 4, but when I consider the themes in my dreams, they all seem to deal with 6 issues of security and protection. For example, I have tons of tornado dreams--though I'm not particularly...
  6. [Enneagram Type 6] Type Six: The Loyal Skeptic (Timeless' Description)

    Type 6 Forum - The Loyalist
    Some people see the world as dangerous, and some see it as safe. Some see it as just or unjust. Nevertheless, we all live in the same world. Elements of our personality color our views, and human perception is little more than an inkblot test. One purpose of the Enneagram of Personality is to...
  7. [Enneagram Type 6] 6s Mistyped as 4s

    Type 6 Forum - The Loyalist
    Has anyone else here thought they were a 4 at one point? I still wonder if I am, but I've only recently discovered that I might be a 6. When my sister originally forced me to take the Rheti Sampler about a year ago, I tested as a 6, but I disregarded it because I didn't resonate all that much...
  8. Rising from the ashes of the six's abandonment fears into unconditional love

    I will be the answer, at the end of the line... For me, the most upsetting of the many, many struggles we faces as type sixes is that fear of abandonment that defines the bottom end of our existence. I wrote not long ago about how I'm learning to let go, but this is a battle that's far from...

    Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    Once we establish our personality styles or paradigms to help us apprehend and navigate around the world, we can either keep them pliant, flexible, accommodating, and up to date; or we can rigidly maintain them, assimilating everything into them, and suffer what Joel Barker (1992) calls...
  11. The Three Vs of the Enneagram

    Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    Author: Jerry Wagner When I was first introduced to the Enneagram, we got only the bad stuff -- the distortions, fixations, compulsions, exaggerations, vices, bad breath, etc. When I, in turn, presented the Enneagram styles this way, people would ask: "Isn’t there anything good about any...

  13. The Responders: One, Two, and Six

    Enneagram Personality Theory Forum

  14. INTJ and Enneagram Point 6 (Guardian/Devil's Advocate/Loyalist)

    INTJ Forum - The Scientists
    I noticed a thread on the combination of INTJ and ennea-type 1, so I'm starting a corresponding thread for INTJ and ennea-type 6. How common is this combo? Is there anything unusual about this combination of personality types? Anything people with this combo should watch out for? Any other...
