    Aren't 6's like the most common of all the enneagram types?
    I would say that ethically you are still supposed to act as if you have unilateral responsibility; but simultaneously you have to be able to see the other as a fully autonomous, free, aware person.

    Medicalizing social problems has the additional benefit of rendering society not responsible for those social ills. If itís a disease, itís nobodyís fault. Yay empiricism.

    I guess when I read the description of a six it sounds like no one I ever meet. I guess they exaggerate with how scared they seem of the future. Like people who are waiting for dooms day or something

    I believe 6s are the most common. But I think it's also relatively common for 6s to mistype themselves, as well as having others mistype them. For me, expressing my insecurities often has a feeling of wrongness that comes with it, so it's something that's typically avoided; internally, however, there has been a lot of chaos and confusion during my more stressed times. I can be extremely self-doubting and constantly wondering whether or not decisions I made were the 'right' ones, but this still isn't something I willingly admit to others in my personal life.

    Here are some of the common misidentification descriptions between 6s and other types.

    6s can sometimes appear extremely nervous, somewhat skittish. But sometimes that's shifted into "nervous behaviour", and wanting to keep oneself occupied etc.

    @mercutio
    When I take the enneagram test those are the top options they give me. Along with 7 because I like to travel and try new things. But I am definately not a 7.

    With the way I live my life I am not living like a 6 if that makes sense. I do almost nothing to secure myself especially with money. I wish I could be more "safe" though

    Although I have known my enneagram type for quite some time, the biggest confirmation for me was probably noticing how I reacted when completely stressed: if something was making me feel insecure, I was completely focused (obsessed, and not in a healthy way) with the things that I believed would 'fix' this issue and give me a safety net. I'm in a healthier state now, so there are no real obsessions, although there is still a focus on maintaining a constant and steady flow of the things needed in order to survive.

    6s aren't always skittish, all rule-abiding, outwardly nervous and compliant people. That's probably more common with the phobic side of the 6.

    That seems more Sp than 6.

    But a Pony Lemonade stand is definitely Safe.

    You're probably just sp last. And 6w7.

    I don't do anything to seek security and I am not reliable at all. I am more fantasy prone and I don't do anything when I am stressed. I just shut down and do nothing. I escape into my own world. @darya

    I'm not sure of your enneagram type by such limited interaction, so I'm not forcing my opinion on you at all. But by what you write and your communication style you don't seem like a 4 to me. I also don't see you in image/heart triad.

    I know a bunch of 6w7 people who are unreliable, irresponsible and fantasy prone. 6w7 can be quite easily mistaken for 4w3.

    Again, you have to decide on your own. Just trying to let you know that 6's come in many many different varieties, more than any other type (besides e3 probably) . A counter-phobic 6w5 is for example a million miles away from a phobic 6w7.

    Also, I might be way off, but it's very very difficult to imagine a IEI e4 girl whipping children with belts as a part of an everyday discipline. IEI's e4 are soft creatures. Me personally, I could never do that in a million years, maybe only if I would be completely frustrated and enraged. But I would probably cry after lol.

    What? I felt bad about that. I don't see that as fun or enjoyable. That's why I wrote the post. I barely do that. I only did it twice at most.

    Yeah I have to research it more because I might be a 6. But I don't see myself as using my head. I think off emotions all the time

    I thought maybe 8 for you, esp if you disappear into yourself when stressed

    I've mistook my type 9 friend for a 6 for a long time thinking that "anxiety=6" while it turned out that her skittishness had much to do with her stressful living situation and unsupportive family members who further stressed her out. other types get extremely anxious thru stress, pressure, inner conflicts, losing their guide. or to put it in another way: all types have something to be nervous about, every type has it's own anxiety triggers and it took me a while to realize that this wasn't unique to type 6.

    @role "Fear vs. Courage" theme talked about in these Type 6 videos and learning how to handle the objects of fear or fear-filled situations is a big part of type 6 growth and overcoming of 6's variety of anxiety. if you are relating to this, then you could be a 6





    (scroll to 5 minutes for type 6 presentation)

    Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't mean that you enjoyed it in a sadistic way. But you wrote that you're not planning to stop no matter what people say, so I thought this is your usual way of disciplining children.

    I'm just not feeling the E4 (or e2), is all. You seem quite "tough", but maybe that is just my perception.
