Before we take a look at these famous individuals, we will take a look at the 6w5 enneagram type so you can understand why these personalities are associated with this enneagram type!

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!

In this section, we will take a look at each celebrity in detail!

Tom Hanks

Apart from the above traits, people who are associated with the type 6w5 enneagram are quite hard working and engaging – this is one thing we cannot deny about Tom Hanks and the movies he makes! 

We know this celebrated actor from his movies – the thrill and action packed in them as well as the human element that reaches out to touch the very bottom of your soul makes all of us get glued to the edge of our seats! We can’t help but enjoy the entertainment this man gives us!

Generally, when we see Tom Hanks in movies we love, he does so because he does possess the characteristics that he portrays of the characters he plays; he is indeed responsible and will accept responsibility for what he has done and will endure the consequences.

Furthermore, he is indeed engaging – he likes to have a laugh and has a very good sense of humor that can be a bit bitter but is great in getting the message across in a very polite manner.

This man is no doubt hard working – you will see him appear in movie after movie playing the actors wonderfully – he truly puts in the effort to make the movie seem real and the characters connect with the audience.

Joe Biden

The president’s latest statements on the Afghan war and the ‘departure’ of American troops shows that he has indeed accepted a looming truth that was yet to be accepted. He has the courage to state that War is not the answer and it is only through political engagement and talks can peace and stability truly be achieved.

Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr. is an American politician who is the 46th and current president of the United States. A member of the Democratic Party, he served as the 47th vice president from 2009 to 2017 under Barack Obama and represented Delaware in the United States Senate from 1973 to 2009!

He is one of the famous personalities that is often associated with the type 6w5 enneagram.

Princess Diana

Princess Diana is indeed a 6w5 personality type because of the fact that she worked very hard to see the world through the royals eyes but also retain her true self – a woman who empathized with the people who suffered in this world and just wanted to live their life peacefully.

She, like other 6w5s, also wanted to be safe and in a reliable home which she was unable to attain because of her deteriorating relationship with her husband.

Bear Gryllis

It is for sure many of us may not like what he does or agree that what he does should even be legal, however, his profession reflects his inner personality which is to be safe; he teaches people how to survive in the wild if ever they get stranded.

He appears on many channels and even National Geographic and is quite skilled at what he does – another trait of 6w5s!

Ben Affleck

Benjamin Géza Affleck-Boldt is an American actor, film director, producer, and screenwriter. His accolades include two Academy Awards and three Golden Globe Awards. He began his career as a child when he starred in the PBS educational series The Voyage of the Mimi!
