    Default Enneagram 6s, why don't I like you as much as I should?

    I don't know what it is, but I feel so uncomfortable around 6s, even the ones on the web give me vibes that I'm not the biggest fan of. I can't really tell what it is

    Maybe it's because we're all like 'hey! watch out for the man!' when you'd rather just ignore the man entirely.

    And that's when disagreements start, it's strange. Supposedly 6s and 9s are very complimentary types, maybe I just don't get 6s enough.

    really? I was just guessing based on how someone pegged me as a 6. :o

    I don't feel that way, maybe you have a bad past with 6's.

    I really think that is it, you hit the bullseye straight off . I've had plenty of sixes try to convince me that something bad will happen, that some things are infeasible. 'nuclear fallout is happening!!! omg! *meltdown*', and I always seem to tell them something like 'lol, do you really realize how big this planet is? It's not even slightly troubling. It's not even happening on this side of the plannet', and i get the feeling 6s don't like being told this... but I can't tell. I think I read somewhere though that sixes like to be told everything is going to be alright because it eases that anxiety they are so well known for.

    Maybe it's you?

    It can't be good when your instincts say it has something to do with an arbitrary personality type.

    It might be because some of us can be extraordinarily blunt.... especially when we are annoyed. I can get along with 9's, but I refuse to ignore anything.... and yes, that can cause serious problems in a real relationship. 6's can be truth-tellers; 9's want to ignore problems and pretend they are not there sometimes, and I can be determined to show 9's that they exist. It just doesn't work for more than a buddy-type relationship.

    hm. me personally, i'm actually not a sky-is-falling kind of person at all. i'm usually the one telling other people to not worry about things... like at work - just do the best you can and things will be fine, etc... i always appreciate it if someone talks about the bright side of things, but just saying "it's going to be all right" to me would be kinda useless... either i know that already or i've already been troubleshooting for days... i actually kind of like crisis situations, i feel calm and engaged during them...

    my dad is a 6 too though - i think 6w5 sp/sx - and he's more like that, he can get really gloom-and-doom. it gets on my nerves sometimes... i guess it annoys my 7 wing, i dunno. it's like he creates a self-fulfilling prophecy because he's so worried about whatever happening that all he can focus on is that, so even if it doesn't happen, he experiences a huge flood of negative effects from it anyway, and then he blames it, even though all of us outsiders can see that the problem isn't the problem, the problem is his perception and subsequent reaction...

    haha well this makes me doubt someones type. I have a 5 who is constantlytrying to convince me that something bad will happen.. "dont go to college because economy will colapse anyway", "i u go to school try looking for a career that will be useful after we loose all modern made things (electricity, computers) because it will soon all be destroyed by humans" Always that kind of answer! Maybe hes a 6


    btw he is typoC member; but I ll keep a name secret (for security reasons of course )
