Enneagram 6 w 7 Description

Type 6s are people who value the opinions and advice of people whom they can trust. They long for support, guidance and security and are most comfortable when they can plan, have routines to follow and can think through all types of outcomes.

Type 7s are influencers with charismatic personalities who believe in leading by inspiring others.

They often struggle with feelings of anxiety but distract themselves with excitement and fun. They are extroverts and love to experience everything that life has to offer.

A combination of the two types, the Enneagram Type 6 wing 7s belong to the Head Triad and are happy to indulge in relationships where there is reciprocity.

On the outside, 6w7s may seem to be eager to befriend people, but inwardly, they are assailed by suspicions and doubts about the motives of people.

They often spend their time wondering about who’s plotting behind their backs. And it’s no wonder that they are the “Forced Fun” lot who want to have fun, but their suspicious nature will not allow them to.

The 6w7 Enneagram is quite loyal and is not afraid to express their loyalty in different ways, but they need constant reassurance about the loyalty being reciprocated.

The “Forced Fun” personality is led by the belief that friendships should be everlasting, but if the association is cut short, then the 6w7 finds it very difficult to accept this.

But in general, 6w7s are outgoing, friendly, open, trustworthy and reliable and their approach to life is quite easy-going. They are engaging, sociable and dependable friends. Psst…they are great confidants too!

But despite seeming to have an enthusiastic attitude outwardly, 6w7s are quite the doubting Thomases on the inside, thinking quite negatively about themselves.

They tend to live in the moment and can’t plan too much for the future. 6w7 Enneagrams are also materialistic and quite possessive.

On the other hand, 7w6s or “The Secret Adventurers” are charismatic, spontaneous and popular types who know how to have fun.
