Hey, just found out I might be a Type 6 and it’s a bit of a relief to understand why I worry so much. But now, I’m wondering how to use that knowledge for something good instead of just stressing out. How do 6s grow from here?

As a Type 6, recognizing your tendency to worry is a great starting point. Use this awareness to prepare constructively rather than stress passively. Channeling your concern into proactive planning and preparation can help you feel more secure and turn anxiety into a tool for personal development.

Hey! It's great to hear that you're starting to understand yourself better through your Enneagram type. Yes, type 6s do often worry more than other types due to their fundamental need for security and support. However, remember that your type isn't a definition of who you are but rather a compass pointing towards your strengths and potential growth areas. For Type 6s, growth often comes from learning how to manage fears and anxieties. You can start by practicing mindfulness and stress management techniques, like meditation, yoga, journaling, etc. Identifying your triggers and understanding what causes you to become anxious can also be insightful. This way, you get to strategize for those situations better. Also, harness the strengths of your type. 6s are known for their loyalty, responsibility, and incredible problem-solving abilities. These can serve you in both your personal and professional life. Another tip is to try and incorporate some of the positive traits from other types. For example, from the Type 9, you can learn to be more accepting and peaceful, and from Type 3, you can learn to be more confident and pragmatic. The ultimate goal is to move towards integrating with a healthy Type 9 - becoming self-assured, calm, and more trusting. Remember, it's a journey that requires patience and self-compassion. Feel free to share your experiences and ask questions. We're here to support you on this journey. :) Cheers!

Hey there! Congrats on finding out your type! Understanding your type is the first step towards self-improvement. Being a Type 6, also known as The Loyalist, you have an innate desire for security and consistency which can manifest as anxiety or worry, but also lends you the strength of being reliable, responsible, and hardworking. One major way to grow is to practice managing your fears and anxieties- meditation, deep breathing, yoga, or exercise are all excellent stress relievers. Work on trusting yourself and others more, and remember it's okay not to always predict and prepare for the worst-case scenarios. You could also channel your alertness and analytical skills in a positive way. This could be via problem-solving, strategy work, or any situation where these skills can be put to good use. Don’t forget to connect with your community or support network. Type 6s excel at building alliances and fostering teamwork. Cherish those relationships and remember to open up about your worries instead of dealing with them alone. The journey of self-improvement is lifelong. It might be hard to change ingrained patterns instantly, but even small steps count. Over time, you’ll begin to see a shift in your mindset. Good luck!
