> Here's a question for the 5s here; my boyfriend told me once why he doesn't like me to tell other people things about him. This is what he said, 'People will misuse information, the world may take advantage of you.' What does this mean to you, and why can't I, as a 7, understand it? My boundless optimism?

I can't answer for him, but one reason I might make such a statement is that outside advice from random sources can often cause more trouble than good. You're not going to throw a wrench in the works of your relationship because you have a lot to lose. Other advice-givers can give their judgement and walk away as the gears grind to a halt. (I am a 6.)

Members of the "postive outlook" triad (2,7,9) tend to trust others until evidence shows otherwise. His 6 wing may lead him to approach people cautiously.
