Striving to Feel Secure (Enneagram Type Six)

In this episode of the Awareness to Action Enneagram podcast, Mario Sikora, María José Munita and Seth "Creek" Creekmore talk about the Enneagram Type Six, “Striving to Feel Secure,” with special guest, Chelsea Jackson. The four discuss why this type of vigilantism and alertness is misunderstood, drawing from Chelsea’s perspective. Chelsea shares how it truly feels to be a Type Six on the inside and talks about the disconnect with how this type feels about themselves versus how others view them.

“Particularly in the corporate world, where I work, it’s a type that can frustrate people because of their perceived hesitancy, their perceived negativity about things, but what I find is that when the times get tough, Sixes are actually really prepared and they’re very effective people in those situations.” -Mario [06:05]

“Besides Type Six being misunderstood in the Enneagram world, I think they’re sometimes hard to read in the real world. People, I think, have a harder time making sense of their behavior or jump very quickly into conclusions to why they’re doing certain things when in reality their inner process is sometimes very different to what people perceive of them.” -María José [07:17]

“What we’re all kind of expressing… this confusion that a lot of people in the Enneagram community have around Sixes.” -Creek [08:50]

“I have a pretty good BS radar. Like I can know when you’re not being authentic. I can know when you’re just asking me for lip service, but you’re not actually going to do what I suggest. And that makes me not want to be invested.” -Chelsea [47:58]
