I just picked up a few books on the enneagram. I am pretty certain I am a 5w6 but I act more like a counter phobic 6, I can list some examples of the behavior if needed. Counter phobic Wing, yes or no?

is it possible to be 5w6(cp)? Or can you only be a 6wX (cp)?

I don't think I will ever figure this out. I will just stick with I am 5w6 CP it seems to make sense to me.

I think I find my security in gaining knowledge and my knowledge makes me feel secure so, they balance each other well.. So the whole knowledge vs security doesn't help.
looking at integration doesn't really help either because how closely they resemble each other.
Also I believe my anxieties have subsided greatly since I have found out more about myself and social norms of society within the last few months. I see my self becoming less skeptical of the motives of people because now I understand their motives a little better.

Instead of dwelling on why they said something a certain way and trying to find out if it was vindictive or negative.
I now think that they are only responding according to how they perceive things which is different than how I do.

so to sum this up until I am challenged on my decision with some hard facts or maybe have some great eye opening experience I will stick with my decision as a 5w6 with CP behaviors. I will also give myself another month or so to think on this and I will attempt to take the enneagram test again.
