Ask a Six what he wants most out of life and he’ll answer without a moment’s hesitation ‘Just a little peace and quiet’.
That’s the most important thing in the world for him and he’ll work very hard to achieve it.
Sixes are also great home lover with the emphasis falling heavily on family life.
They make excellent parents because they are well-balanced and self-controlled and always ready to listen.
And always prepared to drop everything to help any member of their family during a difficult stage in their development.
Children and home behavior
Sixes are acutely aware of the responsibilities of parenthood and take them very seriously.
They want their children to have every possible advantage in life
And aids to education, are one area they never neglect.
In fact quite the reverse, their homes are usually full of books on a wide range of subjects.
Sixes Believe in Education
They believe that education doesn’t stop when a person leaves school
And that you’re never too old to learn- a point they illustrate by being avid readers themselves.
All Sixes are creative and usually gifted in some field of artistic expression,
Especially where color is concerned.
They simply thrive in beautiful surroundings
And they won’t worry if their living space is small or cramped so long as it is aesthetically pleasing.
Rich, vibrant colors attract them most,
Although these need to be broken up with carefully positioned,
And indeed chosen, ornaments and pictures, which will quite often be those they have painted themselves.
Sixes also have an innate desire to make people happy
And often go out of their way to help others find a solution to their problems.
Sixes Joy Time
Entertaining is also something they enjoy but the meal must be presented properly.
Fish and chips out of newspaper, even if it is the art review page, won’t do for these perfectionists.
Sixes are usually successful in life and many find themselves in responsible positions relatively early in life.
However, they seldom abuse their power and wield it with a wisdom and compassion which far exceeds their years.
Sixes Attract people Around
People closely involved with them respect their honesty and discretion,
In fact, many of their colleagues become close friends over the years.
Peace and quiet may be what a Six wants at heart
But he can also be very determined when there’s something he particularly wants to achieve and when angered,
Usually over a moral issue, he will brook no opposition.
Sixes Must Win
He must win! He likes to do everything for himself
And although he wants to help others he dislikes being helped himself in any way.
He won’t delegate, finds its almost impossible to accept assistance,
And is secretly afraid of becoming a burden to his loved ones in his old age.
Sixes Money Is Not Important
The money will never be of paramount importance to a Six
But those who do manage to accumulate a tidy sum over the years often become patrons of the arts,
If only in a modest way.
Careers for a Six tend to fall into two very distinct categories.
On the one hand, they could choose to follow a profession which provides a much-needed service to others such as:
or marriage guidance counseling.
On the other hand, they could opt for something more in keeping with their artistic and creative needs.
Many make brilliantly successful painters, sculptors, writers, musicians, teachers and interior designers.
Sixes should try to avoid a working environment
Which is in any way stressful or politically motivated as this would fail to meet their need for harmony and peace.
Our ‘doves of peace’ have a negative side to their character just like everyone else but, in their case, it tends to show as a form of selfishness.
At times, Sixes can be over-dominant and try to force their opinions and views on other people.
Occasionally, their desire to help others rebounds with the result that the person they were trying to aid becomes emotionally dependent upon them.
Great Romantic Person
Sixes of both sexes are great romantics at heart and their love tends to be more chivalrous than sexual.
Love for Sixes is an ideal which should be treasured rather than a purely physical union which should be enjoyed.
These are the people who write poems, send flowers, and dedicate songs to the object of their affections. They like to admire at a distance rather than come to grips with their passion.
They are kind, loyal and always faithful to their partner both in mind and body. Their unyielding morality never permits even a harmless day-dream about someone else.
Sixes expect fidelity in return for putting their loved ones on pedestals.
If Sixes sense of decency and honor should ever be outraged by an unsuspecting partner, you can be sure an emotionally charged scene will follow.
Female Sixes are motherly types who often prefer to stay at home and look after their families.
They are born homemakers and devote almost all their waking hours to making sure that the house is just right.
Everything around them must be pleasing to the eye and everyone must be happy. Only then do they feel fulfilled.
The color is especially important to a Six and they should go for bright, bold colors, especially blues.
All shades of pink and rosy reds are also very much in tune with them although they should keep away from black and dark purple.
The gemstones for a Six are turquoise and emerald in a setting of their own choice, and it’s sure to be the right one because they have a flair for knowing what goes best together.
