Based on another thread, I thought this might be a good idea to explain the often contradictory nature and thought patterns of counter-phobic 6's.
Having to delve deep into finding out about my type (after repeated test results of e8, e5 and e7 - neither being consistent) and learning the driving force behind a lot of my actions has helped me get passed a lot of the negative behavior and focus more on using my energy toward important matters.
I'm no expert. I can only give my perspective for my own experiences. Ask away!
