I thought I was 6 then I took a test that Aylen (I think) posted here for tri types and scored social 8. I read the 8 descriptions with people who know me closely IRL and then the 6 and they both said the 8 sounds just like me. (at least on that source of info) I thought it was so obvious from the descriptions there I went back to a 8 and didn't look back at 6.
my instinct could be sx/so instead though. I've been watching a lot of movies during this lock down and I've noticed I really relate to the Sx/So characters

Sir that's my emotional support gremlin
Wow I sure was disintegrating a lot around the times I was active here huh. Not that I'm not now but looking back to how hard I had rationalized why despite being a fairly stereotypical 5 irl, I was totally a 9 and how I put disintegration to 7 of my thoughts being out of order as being a 9. To be fair, that whole "9s mistype as 5s, not the other way" narrative didn't help but welp.
And my instinctual stacking... Probs sp-first but who knows at this point.

@onfireee seems like a enneagram 1 tbh.

Social subtype 6 is very 1-like.

I'm not going to argue about someone else's type, especially with someone else who is constantly changing their type at the drop of a hat. But I digress about that.

Type 1s deal with anger due to "not being good enough" as a child for whatever reason. They shift this anger into movement (gut triad) and are mainly concerned with their idea of perfection, morals, etc, and if they don't seek to perfect themselves to some crazy idealized standard (sp or so) then they usually seek to perfect others and usually society as a whole (this is with sx instinct specifically iirc, I've not had the space, time, or quiet to delve into again or read up on enneagram).
I will agree that social 6s can think that they're 1s. My mother who is a clear Enneagram 6 so/sx even picked e1 as the description she most related to! But the motivations are very different. What social 6's want is continuous rapport, constant reassurance from the same rather usually large group of people that they know they can trust (however, they sometimes even seek support from strangers and vents to them if an event affects her severely enough), and are usually OK with facing the fact that they must get help from others even if it's a difficult pill for them to swallow.
I am not trying to push ideas, logic or anything like that, but this is what I've noticed of the types I've met and grown up with.

Your examples of 6s are incredibly oversimplified to try and twist a narrative, but I get what you're aiming at.
I agree, this is why a lot of people have such a difficult time defining and differentiating 6s from other types.
"Sixes are bundle of opposites." is certainly true.

@Pierrette well I don't know him that well, if you talked to him in PMs and you are convinced of type 1 then I'll take your word for it.
