“The Loyalist.” Enneagram Type Sixes are exactly the kind of people you want to work with, as they are known for being committed, reliable, and trustworthy. While a six might tend to overthink and seek reassurance to know that they can trust you, they are loyal until the end when they feel secure in their relationships with friends, family, coworkers, and clients. Let’s take a look at what makes sixes a great addition to your marketing team.
Type Sixes Are Loyal
Once a Type Six has accepted you into their circle, you’re in for the long haul. This person will be your loudest cheerleader, rooting for you during every personal and professional challenge. They’ll lend you their full attention as they provide you and your team with consistency, trustworthiness, and collaboration. Fiercely loyal, Type Sixes can often be the glue holding your team together.
Type Sixes Are Planners
A Type Six can often overthink and overanalyze situations in their life, which helps them prepare for worst-case-scenario events in their personal and professional lives. They brace themselves, waiting for something terrible to happen. And, though it rarely does, you can be sure that your Type Six is ready and willing to handle whatever comes their way.
Type Sixes Make Calculated Decisions
You will never find a Type Six entering into a situation blindly. This person will look to their trusted friends, family, and mentors for advice on their biggest decisions. From the outside, this may seem like indecisiveness; however, a Type Six simply wants to be sure that they have all of the information they need before they move forward.
Type Sixes Are Realists
You might find that Type Sixes are suspicious of certain situations at work. It may even come off as pessimistic. But what you will actually find with Sixes is that they are realists who will not overly romanticize their new projects or client situations. They want to be positive, but they know that blind positivity won’t get the job done. In fact, they may even worry that being overly optimistic could help them to ignore potential problems coming their way.
