    Default E6 Fear, is it kinda like this?

    Is this what E6 fear is like?



    Is the whole batman movie trilogy basically talking about fear as it pertains to E6?

    At least for me... I don't really associate with that scene in terms of fear.

    I would identify it more like "anxiety", a feeling of unease... trying to predict bad things that could occur in the future and protect against that.

    I don't know that for an e6 basking in fear is the way out. I think for us it's more like learning that danger doesn't have to change our internal state, because if it always does, then we're slaves to fear. But if we choose to act as we see fit given knowledge of danger, as opposed to simply reacting, that's how we can integrate toward 9's inner peace.

    As much as the primary feeling head types deal with is fear, I don't think head types experience fear itself as much as they experience anxiety. Beyond that, I can't understand the purpose of this thread.

    I was waiting for the day you and I would meet.

    I think fear is just the projection of anxiety in 6's, like previously mentioned. The 6's anxiety is... very human, this hyper-focus on the uncertainties of life, "the dizziness of freedom". Many 6's, both phobic but more cp, seem to be unaware of the "fear" at all, or atleast the projection of it. I'm not sure that the 6's anxiety is felt differently than any other types anxiety, but it is somehow amplified or all-inclusive. "the very condition of being conscious and of having to make choices in a world which does not make its meaning or goals transparent to us and which frequently enough seems inimicable to human aspirations and to human existence" is a description that resonates. I don't particularly relate to the video but anyone else could, including non 6.
