    Default out of curiosity...

    as a note, this isn't about me because I'm pretty confident in my own typing enneagram-wise

    person in question though is a toss up

    - holds self and others to certain standards of responsibility and productivity... as in "I know that I'll get my shit done, now it's your turn to hold up your end of the bargain!"

    - feelings hurt whenever friends are less dependable than expected... known to sulk about this

    - has definite opinions on how things should be

    - tendency to cut loose... always one to go for "one more!" when in this mood

    - enjoys cleanliness and order

    - feels most comfortable in familiar surroundings... deep love of "home" and "my stuff"

    - though likely to have judgmental attitudes, also more likely to temper more bombastic displays of anger from others by pointing out potential circumstances

    - completely trusted by employers, employees, family and friends

    - not afraid to be the asshole in a situation as long as facts are on the same side

    thoughts are along the lines of 1 or 6 in a way... any clarification?

    i could definitely see 6w7 or 1w9.

    is there more fear or more rigidity? 6 is more of a responder and 1 more of an initiator, i believe.

    yeah... that's the toss up that I'm having here on the issue... either could fit in a way

    He/she mostly sounds like 6/7. I don't know how you're seeing a 1.

    no sense of anxiety ever witnessed... almost always either calm or annoyed

    1 - judgmental, anger, definite opinions, cleanliness, order, expectation.

    6 has a more tenuous relationship with these things. judgment occurs when i see people ditch other people. i don't have many inherent expectations for others except when it comes to not screwing others over. that's what gets me really angry. definite opinions are another thing, 6 will have some but not others. they will be VERY sure of a handful of things but pretty loose when it comes to everything else. i like cleanliness and order because it creates comfort and surity but the lack of them don't really bother me. anger is in response to injustice but there's not much trouble with repression or resentment.

    The first thing to look for when diagnosing a 6 is contradictions, not anxiety.

    I don't see where 9 is completely out of the picture either.

    the person in question has some abandonment issues and trust issues from their past and a rarely expressed paranoia in relationships... completely confident in the arena of work and ability though... doesn't want to ever be taken advantage of again

    enjoys organizing things as a hobby and collects and organizes coins as well

    I forgot to ask you: why is anxiety such a defining personality trait? And what does it look like anyway?

    Another point: if this person was a type 1, you'd know it.

    Anger is one thing; being an "angry person" is another. If everybody who got angry was a type 1, we'd all be 1s.

    6s are highly opinionated.
    1s aren't the only clean, orderly personality type.
    But is the person in question a reformer? Nope.

    With a 6, I expect to see a 'salesperson' type. With a 1, I expect to see OCPD rigidity, and sternness of interpersonal expression. This type of person might not be given to smiling very much. Ultra-seriousness is the norm. The world might end tomorrow if X isn't done just right for the type 1 personality.

    ...And let's not overlook your lack of capitalization at the beginnings of all your sentences.
