    Thank you for the input, guys and gals... THinking about this a bit more. I don't have anything too fantastic to add so I won't post more till I do. But on the whole, 6w5 probably does fit me best. (I'm kind of neurotic and self-conscious, for sure...but I keep it fairly well hidden, at least IRL...) It would make sense, though, to also see some of the w7 in myself.

    However, I'm not entirely sure about the wings. I've pretty much typed as 6w5, which I'd put down to being an introvert, intellectually inclined, and so on. The thing is, I've read 6w5 and 6w7 descriptions which I identify with to almost an equal degree. I mean, I'm an introvert but I'm not heavily introverted - more the "ambivert" type, though I have too many of the introvert characteristics to not be one.
    I had the same problem. The way I decided was this - if there was no such thing as a 6, would I be a 5 or a 7? Then the answer became obvious. Not sure if that method is valid but it's what I did.

    Yeah, by that test I'd have to be a 5. Even though it's not a type I identify with much - but more so than 7, for sure.

    Take a close look at this


    Specifically:
    "Wing
    If you are the Enneagram Type 6 with the 5 Wing, you desire to appear remote. You see yourself as faithful, knowing, intelligent, refined, real and brave.

    If you are the Enneagram Type 6 with the 7 Wing, you desire to appear conformist. You see yourself as loyal, casual, related, interested, energetic, warm and wary."


    For me, it very much confirms the 6w5 for me vs 6w7. I'd never seen anything in writing that was conclusive till finding this.

    Oh, that's interesting. Thank you. I actually identify quite a bit with aspects of both of those (though in neither case do I identify with all of them). So I can't say it makes it conclusive for me!

    I have to say that for an INTJ, 6w5 seems the more likely option for sure for INTJ type 6s. Perhaps it's a bit less definite with INFJ... Perhaps I do just have fairly balanced wings; I think that's a possibility.


    EDIT: I'd say I don't particularly identify with being "remote", for 6w5. But I identify with most of the other points. And I'm not too sure about "casual" and "energetic" (I'm really not energetic!) for 6w7, but most of the other stuff, yes.

    Same here. I think you are right about INTJs being lore likely to be 6w5s. Duh .
