The 6w7 INFP Personality Type: Major Traits

Here is a list of the traits that are most common to the 6w7 INFP personality type:

  • Desire Stability
  • Anxious
  • Value Relationships
  • Appreciate Advice & Guidance
  • Explorative

Before we take a look at some of these in detail, we will introduce the personality components that make up the 6w7 INFP personality type.

Who Is An INFP? Dominant Functions.

INFPs are introverted which means they tend to be very much into their thoughts and like to spend time reflecting over the many ideas they have going on in their minds. How do they tend to behave in relationships with ENFPs?

Well firstly, they are smart to think over things and then talk about them. When in a fight, they are more likely to avoid friction not only because they have the habit of staying quiet but also because they are people who think before they speak. This way they can actually prevent themselves from hurting the other person and making the situation worse. 

Sometimes expecting too much and saying what you feel may be a bad thing. People who are introverts hence operate on the same frequency at which they understand that some things must be said while others not. This can prevent them from raising the bar of expectations too high and being wise enough to see when a certain topic should be discussed or not.

INFPs realize the power and beauty of imagination and dreams and this allows them to be creative and more interesting not to themselves only but to each other. How they think can become a good source of conversation for them compared to a person who senses and reacts or processes information. They would be more based on facts and not understand the fun in being so creative.

Although it is usually emotions that blur what is truly going on in relationships, they can also help solve problems that may be difficult to rationalize or understand. Yes it is not always possible to make sense of a situation and hence love and mercy are the only weapons two people have to keep themselves bound to each other. 

This is a dominant function that may result in more daily hassles than any of the dominant functions because of the frequency of its use. People have to get things everyday whether it’s paying bills, cleaning up the house, buying groceries or getting the children to school on time; it can be a lot to handle. Here is where being organized matters. If one lives alone and just goes with the flow it might be possible but managing   things with someone else demands a routine or schedule so things do not clash with each other including people too!

The 6w7 Enneagram: The Confidant

This enneagram shares traits not only with the type 6 enneagram but also the type 7 enneagram. These individuals are very hard working and like to put in a lot of effort and time into what they do or believe in. The ‘buddy’ is also more sociable compared to other type 6s hence they like to meet new people, attend parties and events and of course not miss out on any event!

The confidant loves being around people. Whether it’s a study group, a social gathering or a simple meetup at the nearby cafe, they are the first ones to be there. Being with new people or their close friends, these enneagrams feel extremely replenished – they get to recharge their social battery. Being alone will eventually drain them and they will desire to socialize.

At the same time, these personality types need security in their life. They want to feel gilded and secure usually through the availability of systems, resources and the support of people. This is why they continuously seek assurance from others with regards to how they behave or perform or what decisions they make in life.

Not only do these enneagrams lack security but they have an interesting way of dealing with their feelings. They project their own feelings onto others. This is not a healthy habit and may inculcate fear and suspicion with regards to others. They even joke about their own feelings to make light of them and not have to deal with how they feel. Thus, they may have a number of internal issues in terms of their feelings and emotions.

When it comes to relationships, this enneagram is all in! they pursue the relationships they are part of wholeheartedly. This is because they derive stability from these relationships which they badly desire. Furthermore, it appeals to their emotional component which although is not so obvious is still present. They put a lot of trust in these relationships and give their all. This allows them to engage with others, especially those whom they are close with.

The Basic Fear of Buddies

The basic fear of the 6w7 enneagram is to lose their support system. they badly need those whom they put their trust in and love. they want to be able to call upon those who they consider their last moment saviours – when they are in trouble. Hence, this is why they shower others with love and care so they can receive the same treatment. This enneagram type remains in anxiety because of this fear. They are always worried they will be left alone and hence not have the support they need or desire. They believe that they are not equipped to deal with life’s problems and need others. This fear also inculcates a habit in them to seek affirmation and assurance from others. they need to be told that others will be there for them.

The Desire – 6w7 Enneagrams

Of course their basic desire stems from their fear of losing support and stability – something they badly need in life. They are afraid their friends will leave them and this is something they never want. they want to feel confident that they will have someone to fall back upon in case of a bad situation. They achieve this by being loving towards others. They want to have supportive friends and family that stand by them in their difficult times. This makes them feel strong and confident!

Desire Stability

One thing that is quite obvious in this personality type is that they desire stability.
