    I much prefer the "fear of lacking a unique, significant identity" for 4s

    I don't go around saying "Look how special I am!" or anything like that. Rather, I strive to remain true to myself and to not lose my identity or change for others

    I don’t really experience my core fear on a visceral level like some others here. With some exceptions, I’ve mostly been placed in environments where I was treated as special, or ended up being seen as very special. So I guess that’s helped me develop my own sense of validation of my identity, to some extent. I know I’m special, even if I’m in a room full of (potentially very unique and talented) people. I will probably end up questioning this some day, but most of the time it’s the fears of my (dis)integration points and wings that I experience more intensely.

    >>Type 8: Fear of being weak, vulnerable and at the mercy of others.

    Absolutely. It’s the only one I completely relate to honestly, though I never really thought of it as a “fear,” at least in the actual physical fear-response sort of way. More like, something I dislike or something to be avoided. Probably because I don’t belive it will happen. In my head I know it can, but in my gut I feel like I could always best it/take it/chew off my leg in any given scenario. I mostly recognise it as a “fear” when I think of it in terms lf situations where it becomes a necessary evil, such as in romantic relationships. A business partner I can guard against and crush if needed, but a lover? A certain amount of vulnerability is required in that. That’s when I can’t deny that it is indeed fear.

    I dont relate my potential tritype fears at all.

    >>Type 4: fear of being ordinary.
    I don’t fear ordinary. I know I’m a freak, it’s my level lf acceptance of such that I struggle with.

    >>Type 5: fear of the outside world, of not being competent, failing to cope.
    F the outside world.

    >>Type 7: Fear of deprivation.
    I do like to experience things, but if I miss out, it’s not a big deal. My brother is core 7 however, and I can certainly see this struggle in him.

    My all pervasive 5 fear was hiding in plain sight behind my conscious 1&2 fears. They're like a couple of little devils whispering mean things in your ear, while the main 5 fear is this subconscious paralysis that you can't understand let alone fight. For someone who is incredibly good at understanding its so annoying.
