    in my understanding it's a misconception to see head types as the fear triad or fear types.

    all types have their basic fear patterns. every individual has specific fears etc.

    when you think patternwise about dangers in order to avoid them you're not a fear type in my eyes. it's a way to deal with things. that's all.

    with the help of this thinking pattern head types also avoid the feeling of fear.

    I see your point, some of the toughest people I've met were cp 6s.

    However, Enneagrams 5, 6, & 7 are more driven by fear, and it shapes their personality moreso than other enneagram types. The fear is existential and not the fear you see in fight or flight. It's due to pervasive uncertainty in the external environment & how to navigate it. Thus it is dealt with through analysis and pattern observation in order to create a sort of road map (less obvious in 7) as a reaction.

    I must admit, I was both disappointed and in denial when I typed as a 6w5. As I read about it, I find that it fits me well. Hopefully I can use it to empower myself instead of falling into an ever-spiraling self-critical depression, haha.

    I relate to some of this. Does anyone think I might be a 6 instead of a 5? Someone else here thought so in a PM, a while back. I'm inclined to think I'm too distant and detached to be a true 6... 6s are supposed to be more social and I'm definitely on the lower extreme end of the introversion/extraversion scale. But I'm interested in hearing other thoughts.

    This is not going to go the way you think....

    Are 6's more social? I don't think extroversion is connected that closely. But I will ask: Do you gain more confidence/security in or from acquiring knowledge or trying to figure out what will happen and head it off at the pass?

    I think that is fundimental differences in core. You do have a wing but the wing normally reinforces the core, not the other way around. So for me? Gathering information/acquiring knowledge facilitates troubleshooting. Troubleshooting is the end goal. To minimize uncertainty. Gathering knowledge for its own sake doesn't make me feel more secure. (i.e. If only I could know more 5ness).

    I think it's just from acquiring knowledge. Rarely is it so interested in being practical. I think often the amount of practicality is inversely proportional to my interest in it. I guess that make me a 5.

    Anyway, the OP suggested that 6s were more social.
