Self-Preservation Six: “Warmth”

Extremely fragile on the inside, and even overly childish or immature about certain things and subjects. Always relying on others, authority and loved ones. Indecisiveness and constant worry. SP6s have a fear related to survival-a fear of not being protected that fuels a driving need for protection through friendship and other kinds of alliances with others.

They search for a community and tries to keep friendship for protection, and they can have issues that look like separation anxiety. Like a child who needs to hold on to the mother, these 6 s don't feel confident in defending their own self- interests and usually lives according to their obligations and duties. These 6s may seek to escape anxiety by delusions and imaginary scenarios, false worlds and deceit. They have a passion for compensating for the fear of separation, which manifests as building sympathy and fitting in.

There is a lot of hesitation, indecision, and uncertainty. They doubt themselves, and they doubt their doubt. Feeling uncertain and unable to find a satisfying sense of certainty, SP6s have a difficult time making decisions. They are also prone to assuming or feeling the blame of others. May be an outcast within his society, and can like to show off, but often becomes cowardly in dangerous situations.

Chuunibyou-ish. Attempts to impress people in order to be protected or liked, accepted. May pretend to be courageous (but when faced with danger they fearfully retreats) or excessively friendly and giving as a way of preventing an attack from outside. Delusional mind and wild imagination, over-thinking and over-adventuring into fantasy.

Usually skilled in their academics, but they tend to have moments of procrastination and avoidance of tasks, obligations, duties. Inclination to introjection – picking up traits from other people, like parents, relatives or friends, in order to “survive”; their adaptation is focused on acting like normal people and common everyday people to not be rejected.
