Six: the Loyalist
"I might ask for help, but what if they say no and then things are all awkward and I lose their friendship because they think I'm all needy and weird."

"I don't want to ask for help because I don't want to be a bother to anyone."
"Sure, I'll ask for help. It's a chance to hear what other people want and think. And they all seem to know what they want more than me."
