    I'm usually optimistic unless I'm unhealthy then I freak about everything lol. And OMG I totally relate to 7s humor: it works, people can't argue with me. Most of my tumblr rants were long and depressing or extremely funny and even self-deprecating. Interesting... which is the wing and which is the main :/ I feel too stimulation-oriented and "afraid to be alone with my fears" but I'm also too big of a worry-wart to be a 7.
    6w7's are humorous and self-deprecating too. The way that you are going about figuring out your enneagram type seems very 6w7..... You like to enlist the opinions of lots of people in doing so.

    Agreed.

    This is a trait I also share, as a 6. I want so much feedback.

    It's interesting in the way that a 6w5 doesn't do that. I have one trusted person I will ask if I am not sure, but for most things, I use resources (books, the net, etc.) and figure it out on my own. Some things that I'm not sure on and feel insecure about, I will drive myself crazy changing it until I just give up and pick something lol......but for the most part, I won't enlist or use other's feedback. 6w5's can be loners, and I lean that way.

    It's also how I could tell I was ENFP not INFP...I really want to know what other people think and bounce it off and work it into my schema.

    b) By being goofy and entertaining, you can become okay with the idea of people laughing at you without sensing malice/ill intent from them;

    c) Overstimulation and hedonism can be a means of escape from a psyche haunted by anxiety (the "sad clown" syndrome).

    Thoughts?
    For me, it's just natural, I don't have a reason or think about it at all.

    Yes, I understand, though I was talking more about unconscious motivations - I didn't mean 6w7s think "Well, time to deaden my anxiety with a bout of external stimulation again! "

    Rodney Dangerfield, patron saint of self-depreciating comedy, is usually typed as a 6w7. Self-deprecation can be a device to avoid harm by indicating you're harmless.

    Well, that's true. But the three listed still seem inapplicable (to me, though probably not everyone.) Reasoning is that I only act that way when healthy. When not as happy I tend to sink into my second 4ness mode and the humor gets a little more on the sarcastic and dark side. (In which case, I suppose the "sad clown" theory" could apply.)

    Anyone know about defense mechanisms? :3 I'm pretty familiar with them but how would someone use identification to avoid pain...?

    And another thing about subtypes -_- I was reading up on Sx/so and how it would apply with 6, and it says that their anxiety is less noticeable...I always thought I was obvious when nervous.

    Maybe it would be even more obvious if you were sp?
