Relationship between type 7 and type 6

The epicurean and the loyal

Phoebe Buffay (Friends)
Bilbo Baggins (The Hobbit)


The 6 is attracted by the optimism, enthusiasm, playfulness, fun, and joie de vivre of 7.
The 7 is attracted by the generosity, the commitment, the clever side, the curiosity and the loyalty of the 6.
The 7 can help the 6 to be more adventurous, spontaneous and overcome his fears with his positive attitude and self-confidence.
The 6 can help the 7 to be more conscientious, predicting, serious and responsible.
Both have a fairly developed sense of humor, are curious, sociable and enjoy stimulating conversations.
If they manage their compulsion well, these two types can be very complementary.

Points where to be careful

The 6 is looking for more commitments, while the 7 is struggling with commitments, most of the time trying to keep his independance.
The 6 can see the 7 as being too selfish, impatient, irresponsible, unreliable and arrogant.
The 7 can see the 6 as being too timid, negative, suspicious, and anxious.
