People with the INTP 6w7 personality are thinkers. They like to figure out how things work. They are a bit curious and like to learn new things. They like to be alone time but they alone enjoy being social with people they know.

They’re known to be loyal friends and tend to avoid conflict just to maintain that feeling of security they always seek.

They’re not good at dealing with emotions so they prefer to make jokes to deflect from any awkward or serious situation.

How Does the 6W5 impact the natural INTP Personality traits?


Most INTPs identify as type 5 on the enneagram test, So being an INTP with a type 6 as an enneagram and type 7 as a wing will change some of the natural tendencies.

The 6 gives a more social and loyal side to the INTP, while the 7 wing gives them more of an opportunity to enjoy life and have some fun.

Together these 2 subtypes create a personality that is still very analytical but also has a strong desire for security and stability in their relationships.

They are also more likely to take risks, be spontaneous, and be less inhibited in general. The 7 wing also gives them a sense of humor and they are often the life of the party when they feel like it.

What are the Strengths of an INTP 6w7?


If we’re to summarize, the strengths of an INTP 6w7 would be:

  • They’re more analytical.
  • They’re funnier and more playful.
  • They’re more extraverted.

Signs of an unhealthy INTP 6w7?


In general, an unhealthy INTP 6w7 has a tendency to isolate themselves from others and become lost in their own thoughts.

This will land them straight into the Ti-Si loop where they’ll get stuck in an unending cycle of analyzing past events. They’ll become over-critical of themselves and others, and won’t be able to move forward because why try when the outcome will be the same negative one from the past. This state is now their form of security.

Unhealthy INTP 6w7s also struggle with self doubt and feelings of inferiority. They may become pessimistic and cynical, always expecting the worst from people and life in general.

They may also have trouble with addictions as a way to escape reality.

How to become a healthy INTP 6w7?


  • The most important thing to do for an INTP 6w7 is to admit that their cognitive functions are unbalanced and that they need to get that balance back by using their extraverted functions more.


  • This doesn’t mean that they need to become even more extroverted, but they do need to find a way to get out of their heads and connect with the outside world on a regular basis.


  • They should also find a creative outlet that allows them to express their emotions in a healthy way. This can be anything from painting, writing, dancing, or even cooking.


  • It’s also important for the INTP 6w7 to find someone they can trust and rely on. A friend, therapist, or any other support system can help them work through their emotions and provide a sense of stability in their life.
