    Default Emneagram 5w6 or 6w5

    Just curious, how to find out the main differences between a 6w5 or a 5w6 reading from the descriptions they seem so similar. I find I am either one of the two types.

    The 5s disconnect from the world.
    The 6s try to connect with world constantly.

    The 6w5s may seem detached like a 5 but much more reactive to the external world. More paranoid and aggresive sometimes than a 5w6 too.

    I like this. Plus a 6w5 can want to disconnect to find confort, but can't totally because he's connected with bonds, loyalties and necessity to connect with the world to solve problems and feel secure.

    ^That sounds fairly accurate.

    6w5 (or 6, at any rate) is supposed to move towards others to defuse "danger". Certainly sp-first 6.

    I personally think I'm fairly balanced between 6w5 and 6w7 - I really identify with aspects of both, but I'd probably be more of a 6w5.
