17 Things You Know To Be True If You're A 6: 'The Loyalist' Personality

Friend treats you like crap, you tell yourself they're "having a bad day."

17 Things You Know To Be True If You're A 6: 'The Loyalist' Personality

The Enneagram test has taken the world by storm over these past few months. For those that don't know, this is a type of personality test that matches you to a number ranging from 1 to 9. Each number has a set of characteristics that best match your personality.

Enneagram 6's are the best type to be, but I'm pretty sure I have a biased opinion. So, if you are an Enneagram 6 too, you probably relate to one or more of these 17 characteristics:

We hang on to relationships/friendships for MUCH longer than we should because we hold on to the good we see in others. 

When we believe in something, we stick to it and will rarely change our ways. 

We are awful decision makers because we see an infinite number of options. 

We fear being abandoned by others and left alone. 

We are very anxious people because we want to do everything the "right" way. 

We are filled with compassion for others. 

We constantly need to be reassured of what we are doing. 

We wish we had a rule book for how to handle life's challenges. 

We are very hard workers who strive to do their best at everything. 

We are very good at deciphering between logic and emotion. 

We are very critical of ourselves because we constantly worry we have let others down. 

 We are very direct people, and we expect others to be direct with us too. 

 We thrive on stability and predictability. 

 We are always taking care of other people, sometimes to the point that we forget to care for ourselves. 

 We are very confident in some aspects, but very insecure in others. 

 We are workaholics. 

 We are incredibly loyal to the people we care about. 

In short, six's just need others to tell them they are doing a great job and that they are proud of us.

Happy Enneagramming!

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
