Sixes tend to expect the worst while not exactly hoping for the best. Like Fives, Sixes also rely on their minds, which are often reeling with possibilities — negative, fearful possibilities. Their personalities are filled with paradox. They display characteristics of being equally weak and strong, shy and outgoing, and they flip-flop from one ego state to another. They spend their lives rebelling against authority or surrendering to it. Sixes need someone or something to believe in, and once they find that person, philosophy, cause, government, or theology, they devote themselves to it.
