Before we take a look at these characters in detail, let us introduce the type 6w5 enneagram in detail!

The Guardian: Enneagram Type 6w5

Compared to most type 6 enneagrams, this one is more serious and focused on what they want to do! The type 6w5 enneagram is mostly made up of traits from the type 6 enneagram but also shares some with the type 5 enneagram too! Some traits that describe them include hard working, independent, intellectual and cautious. Although they are independent, they are very loyal to their loved ones and the people they genuinely care about.

These enneagrams prefer to take things for as they are. They are logical and analytical. They want things to make sense and not just accept things just because someone said them or they have some sentimental value. Furthermore, this enneagram type likes to weigh the pros and cons of certain behaviours, actions, events, things or individuals especially when they need to make a decision. Why? Well of course because they are analytical. They do not like passing judgement on someone or something until they fully scrutinize it in a manner that is just and objective.

However, this very same enneagram type is fearful of losing their stability. They want to remain strong and independent. They do not want to become weak, dependent or confused or even lose track of what it is they do. So, this is one reason why they tend to work so hard in what it is they want to achieve!

Sometimes their fears get the best of them and they engage in behaviours that are not so healthy. The enneagram 6w5 type has the habit of projecting their fears onto others. They will view people in light of their own fears, insecurities, problems and desires or unmet needs.

Regardless of that, these enneagrams seek support and guidance. They value the advice and input from others although at the end they will take their own decision. They want to feel supported and loved especially by those to whom they are very loyal to. This is regardless of their independent behaviour and self confidence.

Major Traits Of The 6w5

Here are some major traits of this enneagram type!


This personality type is indeed very introverted – extremely introverted.

This is one reason why such people with this unique combination are difficult to find – they do not interact or open up with people much! They will prefer to spend time on their own and wander around in their vast valleys their mind hosts; they love to think over the thoughts that pop up in their head and will of course imagine many things that have not happened or may happen in the near or far future.

People who have this personality type also need time to be on their own because it energizes them and makes them feel calm and peaceful. Being around others for too long will make them feel drained and tired. This is because they find it hard to focus on what people are saying or doing for too long and maybe it is difficult for them to keep up so that they can respond or behave in an appropriate manner!

High Moral Standards

The 6w5 personality type has high moral standards. They want to do the right thing and also want others to adopt a path of righteousness so as to ensure that no one is wronged. Hence, they will greatly respect the rules and try their best to follow them even if it means not being able to benefit fully from certain opportunities that arise from time to time!

At the same time, these personality traits want others to also follow the rules because it will only have an impact on society – the desired and optimum one – when everyone is doing the right thing. So if you do know a 6w5 type, do not be surprised when they keep pestering you to abide by the rules. That’s just how they are!

Stand Up For Others

Another great trait these individuals have is that they stand up for others! They will ensure no one is being wronged and they are getting their rights. They want the best not only for their own self but also for others because they know how bad it feels when someone is hurt or discriminated against. 

Hence, such people will speak up when it is necessary and they will, in their own way, support movements or causes that are promoting the rights of groups that are being wronged by others!

Internal Conflict

This personality type has serious issues. They will go through moments when they think nothing matters and slide down into their deeper and darker side where they despise absolutely everything. They will want to do one thing because of their personality but at the same time the ‘self’ will have other demands. Hence, they are often confused as to what to do. This confusion may also be apparent to others.


People who fall under this category are often skilled in one or a few areas. They like to possess knowledge so that they can feel independent and able enough to do what they want. They will also make an effort to gain the necessary knowledge to learn or acquire a set of skills that they can use to make a living for themself!

6w5 Characters – The List

Let us take a look at each character and why they are considered a type 6w5 enneagram!

Riley Poole – National Treasure

He is pretty smart and at the same time a great friend! He loves to do research and study conspiracy theories and this is why he has written a huge book with all of his theories in it! However, he is pretty disappointed when no one actually reads it. He does look for attention and this is why he gets upset when Ben is getting it instead of him.

He is good at what he does; he can break into advanced computer systems, get something done without being there and even solve riddles – to an extent!

He is a great friend and this shows by his concern for Abigail and Ben and the risks he is willing to take for them. Although he is quite risk averse and would prefer avoiding any sort of danger totally – he falls into the worst possible situations on the insistence of his friends.

Boris Scherbia

He may not be smart and brainy like his counterpart in the series Chernobyl but he is definitely skilled! He has awesome people skills that allows him to command the control he requires to complete the investigation at Chernobyl and make people listen to him.

He may seem rough and tough but deep down he is sensitive and quite loyal to the people whom he considers close. He is like a gentle beast that needs to be calmed down and given a chance. He is an avid learner and this is apparent by the fact that he takes an interest in nuclear physics and is able to reproduce what he can learn.

Natasha Romanoff – Black Widow

Natasha puts on a bold, courageous front of defensiveness and fearlessness, but underneath it, she’s actually way more protective of her “family” (the Avengers) than she lets on. She stays in a hub, keeping track of them all, and providing them what help they need, a job no one else would want to do, just to keep them all connected. 

She acts defensively to keep herself and others safe, and is incredibly loyal to the people she cares the most about, even being willing to go up against the other Avengers and fight them off. She also has a soft, humane side that Melina comments on as being remarkable; despite being a ruthless assassin, she has managed to retain her humanity.

Lee Abbott – A Quiet Place

Lee is all about protecting his kids and his wife, and goes to great and intelligent lengths to do so, including preparing a system so that his child, once it’s born, can breathe inside a sound-proof box. He’s cautious and wants to know about whatever is happening, when stuff first starts going wrong. Lee instantly thinks something is wrong on the first day of the attacks, and starts to get his family out of town. 

Gretel – Hansel and Gretel

Gretel is, according to her brother, someone who always finds fault in things and something to be suspicious about, and it’s true, she distrusts other people, but also trusts them. She is cautious of the witch and does not want to eat her food, but then becomes so hungry, she cannot resist. She says people never give away something for nothing, and if it seems too good to be true, it is. She is suspicious of the woman and notices how unlikely her extravagant lifestyle is, but stays out of curiosity, and helps around the house in an attempt to understand her own magic. The witch tells her that she “thinks” too much, and needs to be more instinctual.
