    Default PSA: stop typing everyone you see as 6s

    Seriously stop it it's annoying. It's the enneagram communities favourite thing to do is type everyone as a 6. Guess what not everyone who is aggressive is a 6. 6s aren't even known as being aggressive that's just stupid. That's nowhere in their descriptions counter phobic or not. I have yet to see a 6 going around verbally smashing everyone he sees. DJ even made a big thread about this before about how everyone wouldn't stop trying to type him as a 6.

    I know 6s will project their own insecurities on to everyone else automatically and think everyone else is 6s too but the rest of you have no excuse. Try using some critical thought or logic when you type someone it works better.

    Sixes who are more counterphobic are much more likely to question, or even rebel against authorities. They are quicker to confront others and are more prone to suspiciousness than phobic Sixes. They are more determined to be independent and resist turning to others for support. In this respect, counterphobic Sixes can resemble Eights. They try to repress their anxiety through action, and in the average Levels, can react strongly and defensively if questioned. They want to know where others stand and may aggressively provoke a response from them to find out.

    3, 7, 8 are the aggressive types

    So why would you type an aggressive person as a non aggressive type? Where is the logic in that?

    And 4, 6, and 8 are the reactive types (I think you mean assertive/id>aggressive btw). Nothing is as black and white as you're making it out to be. Even Enneagram 2s can be aggressive. The categorizations - assertive, compliant, and withdrawn - are basically just umbrella terms containing different sets of qualities, like any personality type ever.

    So why would you type an aggressive person as a non aggressive type? Where is the logic in that?
    Because non-assertive types can be aggressive as well. And no one just sticks to one image, personality traits in people rest on a spectrum and fluctuate depending on the situation.

    And why do you react so strongly when people think you're a different type? You obviously cared enough to make a thread about it. When I was typed as ESFP or 2w3 or other things you didn't see me complaining.

    I agree with this. It seems like if no one can figure out a person's type, then the go-to type is 6, and that gets pretty old.

    Agree with OP.

    Actually it's been surprisingly hard to identify fellow 6s IRL given the supposed ubiquity of us. I know some, certainly, but not that many. And definitely not as many as the internet would lead one to believe. I'd wager I know more 9s at the very least, and maybe even more 3s.

    That's bullshit. Many counter-phobic 6's are as aggressive as 8's. Take Eminem for example or Hitler.

    Actually it as simple as that. You will never see an enneagram 2 be an aggressive mean person.

    Because non-assertive types can be aggressive as well. And no one just sticks to one image, personality traits in people rest on a spectrum and fluctuate depending on the situation.
    They might be able to for a little bit but that's not their natural state. You can't just pretend you're another type and take on those qualities forever.

    And why do you react so strongly when people think you're a different type? You obviously cared enough to make a thread about it. When I was typed as ESFP or 2w3 or other things you didn't see me complaining.
    Because I have an aggressive type and it's annoying when misinformed people won't shut their loud mouths. My type isn't up for debate anymore I already figured it out a long time ago. I have known I'm an ISTP for years now and have interacted with a ton of other ISTPs I think I would know if I was a different type. I don't need advice from people who know less than me.

    Eminem is a 7w8. Again he gets typed that because he is aggressive and everyone here thinks anyone aggressive is a 6. No he's a 7w8.

    Okay, then my advice to you is to get out of the Ti-Ni loop constantly feeding you information YOU perceive to be true internally and actually get out there and get some real life experience. If you don't think any E2s will be aggressive or mean people you either don't know enough of them on an intimate level or the ones you know you have mistyped.

    Hell, even E2 CHARACTERS can be aggressive people:



    ^that's for @Elfboy.

    They might be able to for a little bit but that's not their natural state. You can't just pretend you're another type and take on those qualities forever.
    Actually, it is in an E6's nature to go back and forth between phobic and counterphobic responses. Some favor one over the other. And it's not just E6s. Here's an except of an E2's integration point or "soul child" from Maitri:

    Behind the loving, giving and helpful outer facade of a Two lies a competitive, jealous and spiteful little Four-ish soul child. Twos try to present themselves as sweet and kind, self-sacrificing, humble, all of which can be seen as very much a reaction to the darker tendencies of their soul child. This is a little boy who wants to scream "I hate you!" to the other little boy who got the teacher or mommy's attention, pull his hair and tell him how awful he is and how stupid he is too.
    There's not just one side to every type. Each type has different qualities, varying at different levels. Everything lies on a spectrum. Not one quality is exclusive to a certain type, minus the "core fear" (in the E-Gram at least).

    Because I have an aggressive type and it's annoying when misinformed people won't shut their loud mouths. My type isn't up for debate anymore I already figured it out a long time ago. I have known I'm an ISTP for years now and have interacted with a ton of other ISTPs I think I would know if I was a different type. I don't need advice from people who know less than me.
    I agree with ISTP but, again, get out of the Ti-Ni loop. No offense, but I think you're more misinformed than the other people here. Not saying my word is all but don't act like yours is either.
