The epicurean and the loyal

Phoebe Buffay (Friends)
Bilbo Baggins (The Hobbit)


6 is attracted to 7’s optimism, enthusiasm, serenity, fun and joie de vivre.
7 is attracted to 6’s generosity, engagement, shrewdness, curiosity and loyalty.
7 can help 6 to be more adventurous, spontaneous and overcome his fears thanks to his positive attitude and self-confidence. 6 can help 7 to be more conscientious, forward-thinking, serious and responsible.
Both have quite a developed sense of humour, are curious, sociable and appreciate stimulating conversations.
If they manage their compulsions well, these two types can be very complementary.
