The last section of this book by Maitri is about the fear corner, the head types, led by the Six structure, which is both specific and universal.
--
"Fear is one of the underpinnings of postmodern life, and as long as we are identified with our personality structure, we live in fear....Many people who study the enneagram erroneously decide that they are Sixes because of the degree of fear, anxiety, worry, distrust, and doubt that they live with, but each of the nine types has its own kind of fear and all nine can be seen as different responses to survival anxiety. This is because whenever we are disconnected from our inner ground--the ground of Being--we are insecure...What determines our type, from the perspective highlighted at point six of the enneagram--that of fear--is the question of what we are afraid of. If we are afraid of creating conflict by making ourselves or our needs too obvious, it is likely that we are a Nine. If we are afraid that there is something fundamentally wrong with us or that who we are is not enough or good enough, it is likely that we are a One. If we are afraid of rejection, being needy, and of not being loved, it is likely we are a Two. If we are afraid of failure, it is likely we are a Three. If we are afraid of being abandoned, of our sadness, of feeling lost, it is likely we are a Four. If we are afraid of entanglements and of losing what we have, it is likely we are a Five. If we are afraid of boredom, of grunt work, and of being exposed as a charlatan, it is likely we are a Seven. If we are afraid of being weak, and not being in charge or on top of things, it is likely we are an Eight. If, on the other hand, we are simply afraid of everything and everyone to one degree or another, if fear itself in a nameless, faceless way is they driving force of our psyche, then it is likely that we are a Six."
