RESOURCES FOR TYPE SIX - THE LOYALIST
Enneagram wings are the types that are on either side of your main type. You are still your main enneagram type but wings give a bit of influence to your type; it’s part of what makes you unique from all the others in your type. Generally, you have one wing that is more dominant than the other which is why people refer to themselves by their main type and dominant wing (such as 6w5). ⠀

6w7 “The Buddy”
