Both the Fifth and sixth amendments state that a defendant are not required to testify on their behalf. So I don't see why mine is flagged?

Where is it stated in the sixth amendment? I may have missed it but I can't see it in the rights listed under the sixth amendment.

"The amendment permits, but does not require, a defendant to testify on his own behalf."

Okay I will unflag it. The fifth amendment directly states that the defendant is not required to testify based on the self-incrimination concept. The sixth amendment is more indirect but it does say in the source that it is not required.
