    I can't access the test/site right now, but when reading that 5 description, there were some sentences that *really* popped out at me. Namely,

    I tend to be self-controlled and logical--I am uncomfortable dealing with feelings. I am efficient--even perfectionistic--and prefer working on my own. When there are problems or personal conflicts, I try not to bring my feelings into the situation. Some say I'm too cool and detached, but I don't want my emotional reactions to distract me from what's really important to me. I usually don't show my reactions when others "get to me."
    Self-control has always been a very foundational trait for me; the other bolded bits are true too. But the final sentence - not showing my reactions when others 'get to me' -- is HUGE. I mean, I purposefully do that. Most especially in conflict situations, I am very aware of the fact that I'm tamping things down, as I don't think it's 'productive' or accomplishes a whole lot to resolve conflict with emotions flying all over the place..and, I tend to think, if one person's totally all over the place, *someone* has to be the calm one. I very deliberately make sure I stay calm and I detach myself. This can totally backfire of course.. in one of the conflicts in recent years, an ENTJ informed me that I was being cold and robotic. And, of course, not expressing some of those emotions then means you very well may screw yourself over because then the other person might think you in fact aren't feeling strongly when you really are. But anyway, yeah, in conflict/charged atmospheres especially, I tamp down. My emotions show themselves in pretty much any other situation besides conflict/heated moments.

    (Also, I don't want to give people the pleasure of knowing/thinking they've 'gotten to me', if they have. This is probably more of a control thing though.)

    Actually, it is not the description of 5 but simply one of the options for the second question, you can answer that your are self-controlled and logical. The first question is about if you are assertive, compliant and isolant. If you answer that you are self-controlled, logical and assertive, you get 3, self-controlled, logical and compliant, you get one and self-controlled, assertive and withdrawing, you get 5.

    haha, cool, thanks for the extra info. In any event.. what I wrote in that post is true about myself, whatever that makes me.

    i get 8 because i don't relate much to C.

    (C) I have tended to be extremely responsible and dedicated. I feel terrible if I don't keep my commitments and do what's expected of me. I want people to know that I'm there for them and that I'll do what I believe is best for them. I've often made great personal sacrifices for the sake of others, whether they know it or not. I often don't take adequate care of myself--I do the work that needs to be done and relax (and do what I really want) if there's time left.


    i guess it's all technically true, i don't know why i resist seeing myself in it. i suppose because i tend to fall short of my own standards, and feel uncomfortable calling myself extremely responsible or dedicated, even though in comparison to the majority of people, i often am.

    obviously i lean a little cp, no surprise for sx 6, i guess.

    "I am affectionate and skeptical"

    Questioners are responsible, trustworthy, and value loyalty to family, friends, groups, and causes. Their personalities range broadly from reserved and timid to outspoken and confrontative.

    How to Get Along with Me
    • Be direct and clear.
    • Listen to me carefully.
    • Don't judge me for my anxiety.
    • Work things through with me.
    • Reassure me that everything is OK between us.
    • Laugh and make jokes with me.
    • Gently push me toward new experiences.
    • Try not to overreact to my overreacting.

    What I Like About Being a SIX
    • being committed and faithful to family and friends
    • being responsible and hardworking <-- when i actually care
    • being compassionate toward others
    • having intellect and wit
    • being a nonconformist
    • confronting danger bravely
    • being direct and assertive

    What's Hard About Being a SIX
    • the constant push and pull involved in trying to make up my mind
    • procrastinating because of fear of failure; having little confidence in myself
    • fearing being abandoned or taken advantage of
    • exhausting myself by worrying and scanning for danger
    • wishing I had a rule book at work so I could do everything right
    • being too critical of myself when I haven't lived up to my expectations

    SIXes as Children Often
    • are friendly, likable, and dependable, and/or sarcastic, bossy, and stubborn
    • are anxious and hypervigilant; anticipate danger
    • form a team of "us against them" with a best friend or parent
    • look to groups or authorities to protect them and/or question authority and rebel
    • are neglected or abused, come from unpredictable or alcoholic families, and/or take on the fearfulness of an overly anxious parent

    SIXes as Parents
    • are often loving, nurturing, and have a strong sense of duty
    • are sometimes reluctant to give their children independence
    • worry more than most that their children will get hurt
    • sometimes have trouble saying no and setting boundaries
    this is all very accurate
