All Sixes are counterphobic and all unintegrated Enneagram types are counterphobic.
I'm tired of people implying there's this invisible "Phobic 6" personality that acts like a perfect little robot while their "Counterphobic" brothers attack these same systems the Phobics uphold. If anything, it should indicate one or the other, either the Phobic or the Counterphobic, is acknowledging his core fear, which logically would result in integration. Doesn't it make more sense for the "Counterphobic" to be the natural, "unintegrated" type, grappling with his fear, while the Phobic comes to terms with it, stops trying to quell his anxiety with his Counterphobic reaction-formation, and evolve into a healthy 9 who's fully surrendered to the system he once feared?
I don't know, it never made sense to me to treat Nine types like Ten types, though I certainly wouldn't doubt it if the Six were my core type. My two bits.

That was a random guess I'd went with for a while.
Most people who've known me long adamantly scream that an Fe-dom would never behave as boisterously as I seem to on this site. However, the Socionics approach to Fe is much more interesting in this case:

Something's value for him is directly tied to how much coactive zeal it inspires. He is highly proactive about steering the flow of events into the direction he himself considers ideal. He may, for example, try to lighten a tense atmosphere with jokes and optimistic statements, as happens in case of ESE, or, conversely, get people to be serious and concentrated if they are too carefree during a crisis situation or try to instill a sense of purpose if they are too demotivated as happens in case of EIE. Nevertheless, he believes in full investment, for him there are no half-measures.
I've found myself filling the roles of both types in the bold interchangably, but what's even more interesting is that the Socionic stereotype for the EIE is basically this crazy, hypochondriac, fucked-up person who blows everything out of proportion. I don't know what the stereotype is for ESE because Socionics people give all their attention to Betas.
So ESFJ and ENFJ are still on the table for this reason.
6w7 is tied with 7w8 as the most common type I get pegged as, so that would also be sound reasoning.
