Some negative attributes ascribed to a Six that honestly reflect me are as follows: critical of self when expectations are not met, procrastinating due to fear of failure, worry about being taking advantage of, and always scanning for danger. All of these negative attributes basically fall under the insecurity blanket if you will, but at the same time and what totally sold me on the results of the Enneagram, was that the complete opposite can also be said about a Type Six.
