  1. Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    Hi All! I'm finding it kind of confusing reading about us 4's (particularly 4w3's) in that 'we' seem to have a problem being ourselves. That we do ourselves a disservice by being fraudulent (wether consciously or not!) playing up the artist/romantic/creative/depressive/creator/bohemian ect...
  2. INFP Forum - The Idealists
    After reading this thread about http://personalitycafe.com/infp-forum-idealists/829385-authenticity.html I wonder how many of you have lead a similar life.
