: : : Staying power.

: : Those aren't sixes. The six mindset is that of someone in a time of instability and violence.

: this is a perfect example of how different 6w5 creatures are from 6w7 beasts. if there is one thing i do not lack, its staying power. give me a mission, and it is sure as done--especially when i am feeling unstable and violent. in fact, often times it is when i am on the brink of certain disaster that i am the most productive and efficient.

Well, that's the six mindset. Counterphobic sixes tend to become supercharged when adrenaline and stress hormones hit them.

The reason I say that they don't have "staying power" is that they tend to save their energy for emergencies. When they're far from the "brink of certain disaster," their motivation is often insufficient. Sixes are built to cope with threatening situations, which are usually not everyday life.
