The ENTP 6w7 is everything the typical ENTP is not. However, this is not always discernable.
In this article, we’ll look at who the ENTP 6w7 is and what you can expect from them.
Who is the ENTP 6w7?
ENTP 6w7s are cheerful, loyal friends. This personality type is also more careful than your typical ENTP.
The problem with the ENTP 6w7 is that they can be hard to spot. This is because they usually have a strong wing. This makes them more outgoing. Plus, type 6 is usually people-oriented.
So, it is very easy to mistype an ENTP 6w7 as an ENTP 7w6, 8w7, or 7w8. Type 6 is a type that fits all MBTI types. So, this combination is not strange.
While this is true, the presence of type 6 still changes some of the typical traits of the ENTP, as we shall soon see.
ENTP 6w7s are more likely to be ENTP-A than ENTP-T.
What is the Core Desire of the ENTP 6w7?
The core desire of the ENTP 6w7 is to be secure. To achieve this, ENTP 6w7 tries to take minimal risks in every situation.
It might be hard to spot this trait as jokes, humor, or charisma might cover it up.
What is the Core Fear of the ENTP 6w7?
The core fear of the ENTP 6w7 is to be vulnerable. To prevent this, this personality type uses introverted thinking (Ti) to check all possible dangers logically.
How the 6w7 Changes the Natural Tendencies of the ENTP
1. More Cautious
Type 6 is the most cautious in the enneagram of personality. ENTP 6w7s inherit this trait. While other ENTPs are happy to throw caution to the wind, this personality type is terrified of it.
This might not be pronounced as ENTP 6w7s might seem bubbly at first. However, they will resist any plan or idea that puts them at risk.
This is reduced if their wing is strong.
2. Handling Interactions Better
Look anywhere on the internet, and you’ll hear that ENTPs are trolls. Not this ENTP. This ENTP has a more developed Fe. Thus, they know how to interact with others. They are also more tactful and understanding.
While this is true, ENTP 6w7s are still ENTPs. Thus, expect them to remain blunt and straightforward when it matters.
3. More Loyal
Type 6s are known as the loyal skeptic. ENTP 6w7s are similar. They usually have a close-knit circle of friends they rely on.
While this is true, this personality type will not dive recklessly into a situation because of their friends.
Like the ENTP 7w6, they ultimately put themselves first in the face of overwhelming risk.
4. Slightly Better with Finances
ENTPs are not the best with finances. Granted, they usually know how to make money. However, managing it is the hard part.
ENTP 6w7s are slightly different. Type 6 is super worried about having enough for the future. This stops the ENTP 6w7 from running into debt.
While this is true, type 7 is just as impulsive as the ENTP. So, this personality type might not run into debt but will never be great with their finances.
5. Enhanced Introverted Sensing (Si)
Si is the inferior cognitive function of the ENTP. This helps them remember past experiences and how it relates to the present.
ENTPs usually do not have a strong Si as they prefer to deal with ideas and possibilities. However, ENTP 6w7s are different.
Because they are cautious, they make it a point to remember past experiences and outcomes. This allows them to make better choices and be better prepared for emergencies.
The inferior Si is not so inferior after all.
New Weaknesses of the ENTP 6w7
1. More Distrustful
ENTP 6w7s have trust issues. This is down to type 6. So, you can expect them to be suspicious of people’s motives, ideas, or projects.
This distrust might also extend to their career and romantic life. Again, it might not be too noticeable because of how cheerful they are.
2. A Truckload of Fear
Type 6 and type 7 are both in the fear triad. This means there’s a lot of fear in the ENTP 6w7. When faced with dangerous situations, ENTP 6w7s are more likely to withdraw than be counter-phobic.
Their fearful nature can limit their progress and stop them from implementing their brilliant ideas.
With fear comes anxiety. ENTP 6w7s will have anxious thoughts. Because of their wing, they can distract themselves from these anxious thoughts.
However, their anxiety becomes pronounced in dangerous situations. If they are unhealthy, it can lead to other serious health issues.
4. Less Optimistic
ENTPs usually have contagious optimism. However, ENTP 6w7s are different. When interacting with others, this type seems optimistic and charismatic.
When faced with serious decisions or the start of a new project, they become more pessimistic. Their less optimistic outlook is entirely different from that of the ENTP 7w8.
ENTP 6w7 in the Workplace
ENTPs love working in a creative and dynamic workplace. They do well in teams and want to leave a mark in their industry. ENTP 6w7s are slightly different.
While they love creative jobs, they also value stability and security. So, they often sacrifice this need for a more stable lifestyle.
However, if their wing is strong, things can be very different. To get the best out of the ENTP 6w7, ensure their role affords them stability and security. If it allows them to be creative, even better.
