    Default Are criminals most likely to be (CP)6s?

    Lol it sucks to think this, but whenever I read or hear about f-cked up crimes of passion like a teenager drowning their baby for seemingly no reason, someone shooting up a school, etc. I can't help but think about an unhealthy cp6 going bat-sh-t crazy due to anxiety.

    Even growing up in the "hood", I've noticed 90% of the kids ive seen going down the wrong path and screwing their lives up are unhealthy 6s, some of these people I've known really well. They relieve their issues of anxiety through unprotected sex, drugs, gang banging, robbing people, etc. In every delinquent I see a scared child that's just way too familiar to me. I've managed to steer clear of that route throughout my life, but I can't help but feel unsettled knowing so many other people of my type cope this way.

    Obviously, lots of different unhealthy types such as 7s, 8s and even 3s (in a more ambitious way) that can display this behavior too, but there's something about the 6 ones that are really unsettling to me. It's less composed, and more erratic and unjustified. An 8 with a child would have more composure, a 7 would probably embrace the child with optimism, but an unhealthy cp6 will straight up abuse the child out of anxiety and raise another kid with a f-cked up childhood. It's such a common sight in my environment and I can't help but be embarassed.

    Do you think there's a correlation?

    no... there's a lot of diversity in types of crimes out there to be committed, if in doubt just look through your local arrest logs or perhaps read the criminal code of your state (I did that once in high school and giggled throughout )

    I've been arrested and in jail on 3 different occasions and this means that I'm a criminal I guess, though I never committed any truly interesting crimes, the types that appear on television shows or anything. I am most definitely not a 6 of any sort and was not driven by any 6-ish motivations. Can't say that was really a factor for any of my cellmates either... most of them were just trying to get by and took the wrong path

    Anyone can be a criminal especially if they're raised in an environment where crime is considered normal or encouraged. I guess I could see 6s being more attracted to gangs than other types, but there are a lot of types of criminals apart from that.

    I've been in jail and am in the process of getting tried for 3 felonies currently. So yeah

    ^^Im not talking about regular little offenses, I'm talking about people at the brink of insanity who do heinous things out of insecurity like the holocaust, the Virginia tech massacres, and the millions of kids eho are abused for no good reason because their parents hate themselves.



    The way I see it, an E8 gangster would let out his aggression in a fruitful, composed and calculated manner, while an E6 gangster will let out his aggression spontaneously, stupidly and completely screw himself over.

    refining one's OP may be an excellent idea then

    I mean, I read criminal and I think of the fact that I'm quite aware of what the inside of a jail cell feels like, and the waiting for your court date and that feeling of fucking doom that hangs over your head because you can't make plans, have to put your future on hold, because you might be spending the next few years in prison...

    And I still don't think that's particularly type related... anyone can snap in the right or wrong circumstances. I made a comment a while back to someone about the fact that I could just about understand the mental underpinnings of some spree killers... I happened to be experiencing some health problems and the feeling of sheer desperation related to that in a way, like an animal caught in a trap, just made me want to lash out and hurt someone. I didn't, but I could get that sort of thought... ... to tell the truth it kind of disturbed me that something so mundane could make me think that way.

    Motivation isn't uniform, that's the problem with such assumptions

    this doesn't comprise the majority of criminals

    this is a common misconception. it is 6w5 and 5w6 who are likely to be more calculated criminals. 8s are tactical; 6s and 5s are strategic. an immature 8 is likely to be more reckless and not think things through (especially an Sx/So or So/Sx 8)

    I know you're making an argument that any type can loose it under enough pressure (and for the most part I agree with you, though there are probably still correlations) but the behavior you described was very much like a stressed out 7w8

    you've got it backwards...

    and my argument still stands, I was merely offering another motivation that someone else could have other than the CP 6 motivation that seems to be the one that he's thinking of as the primary one out there. I know that there's others, but I'm not them

    MY CRIMES WERE CRIMES OF IMPULSE, DAMMIT!

    and on that note, I have punched people for disrespecting me on several occasions in the past without a second thought... fuck calculation, that happens after the fact when I'm thinking of how to get out of the mess I got myself into

    I live with a 6 and share a bed with one and was raised by one... they're sneaky bastards who worry about getting caught... very paranoid about that... if either of them were to go murderous I could expect letter bombs to be sent, not popping a cap in someone's ass

    or in the case of my grandfather... also 6... he would snipe them off from a long distance... beware of retired marksmen!

    bingo! (my 6 wing has talked me out of doing all manner of crazy shit lol)
    PS: for the record, I think instinctual variants are more likely to play a role than core type. Sp doms are probably disproportionately less likely to commit crimes while Sx/So is probably the mostly likely to.
