    @Hazashin, you're definitely a 6, I'm just unsure about your variant (as you keep getting SX.)

    Dude, forget the bloody tests - its so easy for them to be wrong. What do you think? You know yourself better than anyone. I bet if one of us met you, your type would stand out pretty easily.

    Tests are shit, it's not to be taken seriously. As an INFP, you are naturally more or less an emo kid, which is often confused with being Sx, but it's not the same thing.

    Have you considered that maybe your a 6 integrating to 9?

    My partner is a 9, my mother is a 6 and my aunt is a 3. I have seen my aunt become more 6-ish since 50. She's gone through 4 divorces, 2 of which got tired of her trying to "find herself" and now she has stoped the identity fixation and become much more other people, security, 6 oriented. My mom has a terrible drinking problem and while binging, she detoriorates into unhealthy 3 becoming compulsive about comparing other peoples achievements and going on and on about being the best, having the best, etc. My 9 partner is going through a rather unhealthy bout as well and it occured to me the other day that most of his problems could be resolved if he adopted some healthy 3 focus.

    In my experience, 6's and 9's have really different vibes. Are you more concerned with inner stability or outter stability?

Like, I guess you could say that when I do feel worried, it's mostly going on in my mind (though sometimes it converts to physical actions of my body if it's really bad, such as sweating, shaking, dizziness, etc.), and I mostly maintain a stable composure. Although it is often easy to tell if something is worrying me, I react calmly. I don't freak out unless I'm angry about something. If I'm feeling very afraid, it permeates throughout my body, and my heart starts to beat insanely fast. I've even almost passed out a few times (these were times when I was approaching my crush to talk to her or give her a gift).

    Also, can 6s be very attentive to not upsetting people? I get DISGUSTED if I upset anyone/hurt anyone's feelings.

    Am I making sense?
    Would we be even having this dialogue if you were a 9?

I am more easy-going, low-key, and accepting than most 6s, and I seem to have an agreeable quality to me. I also dislike upsetting people (though not because I fear conflict but because I just care about my friends and people too much for them to get hurt) and I am often compliant.

    On the flip side, I fear being without support or guidance, I am very loyal (especially with those who gain my trust), I am sometimes dependent, I am constantly doubting myself, I am afraid of taking action in problematic situations because of potential negative consequences, I worry a LOT, and I am sometimes a very conflicting person.

    To help out, I have copied (and modified) here a list of qualities of myself that I had used in a previous thread of mine.
    If you have a personality disorder, it's of the Dependent variety. You mentioned "Compliant," and the 2 is one of those types. But you're mostly listing traits of the 6w5.

    Mhm...although I definitely have 6 issues (I know this thread isn't about me...soz!!), I think I'm a relatively healthy and well-balanced person and thus may seem 9-ish, in some respects at least, as a result.

    Yeah...this fits me.

    One of the things that clinched self-pres 6 for me was certain descriptions which cited sp 6 as "going towards" people to "protect" themselves. Almost to defuse possible threats from other people, by being friendly and warm to them.

    I think I have a very INFJ/6 combination there:

    Ni generates all sorts of possibilities about how people may be viewing me or feeling about me, making me tend towards anxiety and paranoia (because I'm not a terribly self-assured INFJ - Ni generates all the possibilities and I doubt and question most of them!);

    Fe makes me polite, compliant, sociable, tactful;

    6 means that it's kind of a self-protective measure - trying to be at least cordial with people who may not be my friends, and establishing good relationships where possible, partly as a security measure (getting good people "on side".)

    Type 6 seems more likely; it seems to me that, type 6's are more likely to seek external feedback on problems and rely on others for certainty regarding things like this, espeically if they're unsure about themselves and request assistance a lot. Also, you're 9-ish tendencies seem to indicate integration. Also, sx first seems likely as well.

    However it still must be you to decide what type you are. If you feel that you are 6w7 sx, then just go by that typing; the best who usually knows you the best is often yourself.
