Enneagram Type 6: The Loyalist
Sixes are the committed, responsible risk-assessors and strive towards security. They love stability and harmony in their community. They are reliable and relatable. Sixes like to know the ins and outs of everything and appreciate being in the know of what’s going on. They are the most spiritual of all nine types. They tend to think of the “worst case scenario” situations and often imagine what could happen if things went wrong.
Behind the Design
Lavender. Because sixes naturally prepare for the worst, they can experience a lot of anxiety - even as children. We thought that the lavender flower was fitting, as the oil from it has been shown to help soothe anxiety while providing so many other calming and healing benefits. Also, lavender flowers denote devotion and caution - both of which are attributes that sixes carry in their day to day life.
Behind the Writing
Fearless. Sixes naturally think of how to be prepared for the world coming to an end. This can be a good thing when it comes to knowing where the fire exits are and thinking twice before making a risky financial decision. But on the other hand, it can cripple a six if their “danger gauge" keeps them from living life. It's important for them to remember that sometimes you just won’t know what’s around the bend. Sixes can live out of abundance when they make decisions out of courage and not fear. Asking themselves “Why not?” more often than “What if?” is a healthy start to a fearless life.
