This is a summary of the characteristics of the Enneagram Type 6 personality (The Loyalist) from our Wednesday night discussions. Join us for the next one!
Type 6 Brief Summary: (from http://www.enneagraminstitute.com/typesix.asp)
The committed, security-oriented type. Sixes are reliable, hard-working, responsible, and trustworthy. Excellent “troubleshooters,” they foresee problems and foster cooperation, but can also become defensive, evasive, and anxious—running on stress while complaining about it. They can be cautious and indecisive, but also reactive, defiant and rebellious. They typically have problems with self-doubt and suspicion. At their Best: internally stable and self-reliant, courageously championing themselves and others.
