6w5 - Seeking Security and Knowledge
Sixes with a 5 wing are generally introverted and somewhat intellectual
. When healthy, they often have many realms of interest
as well as surprising competencies and skills. May have an original and idiosyncratic point of view
. Can be bookish; some are interested in history or feel rooted in the past or related to a long tradition. Also good at predicting the future.
May test potential friends for a long time but once you're in, you're in - a friend for life. When more entranced, they may project a willed remoteness. Have a "tip of the iceberg" quality
- they show little but you sense hidden dimensions, intensity and activity. Tension between needing to be seen and withdrawing for protection.
Might act arrogant or cryptic or cynical when afraid. When phobic, can be diplomatic and say things without saying them. Entranced counterphobics are either cool and loners or argumentative, tending towards violence. Can brood over injustices to them, entertain conspiracy theories, spend time alone building cases. Paranoia in private. May like secretive behind-the-scenes group activity.
Sneaky vengeance, passive/aggressive toward others, self-attacking and self-destructive at home.
6w7 - Seeking Security and Stimulation
Sixes with a 7 wing are generally outgoing
and may appear more overtly nervous. More plainly want to be liked
and will pursue others in contrast to 5 wing who pulls in. Can be charming, sociable, ingratiating. Have a faster tempo
, stronger connection to 3. Often self-preservation subtypes, characterized by a personal warmth
. Can have a cheerful, forward-looking drive and be disarmingly funny. Self-effacing, gracious and curious.
When more entranced, may be self-contradicting and seem as if they want two things at once. Sometimes test others overtly, drive you crazy with mixed messages. It may be hard to follow what they're saying. When threatened, one defense is to become impossible to please. When counterphobic, they tend to be accusative. Some get caught up in big plans that they hope will result in material security. Also can be insecure, irritable
, petty, irrational, chaotic. Subject to mood swings, inferiority complexes, runaway fears.
May have hair-trigger flare-ups of paranoia. Falsely accuse others and then seem not to realize it. Other times they plead to be taken care of. Sometimes defensively conservative in their lifestyle. Some struggle with appetite.
