  1. [Enneagram Type 4] 4w3, Can't Determine Whether SP or SX Dominant

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    I am a 4w3 with a very strong 3 wing and I have typed as a sexual four on two separate occasions using the test on the eclecticenergies website. I have also read many descriptions on these variants, but still feel uncertain about the accuracy of this typing-- about which, between self-pres and...
  2. Who is Mr. Beast (Jimmy Donaldson)? ESFP 4 or ISFP 7?

    Myers Briggs Forum
    So, I'm a lot less good at typing people than I'd like to be and I found myself curious about what type Mr. Beast is. For any not aware, he's a YouTuber. Go check him out and give him some love if you like what you see (I get he's not everyone's cup of tea though, because no one is, so no...
  3. Boy, you got me heartless!

    Heart Triad - Types 2,3,4
    I am a core 9w1 with a 6w7 head, but heart is super tricky Reasons why it could be a 2: I enjoy taking care of others. In romantic relationships, I am more of a giver, planning dates and giving gifts. I like sharing food with my friends. I enjoy doing random things to help, such as helping...
  4. [Enneagram Type 4] 4s and wanting to be secretly parented

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    One component of enneagram 4s is that we want to be 'secretly parented'. I relate to this quite a lot. I have disagreements with my parent's style of parenting and fixate on them, labelling them as the reasons for why I struggle to connect to other people. My search for friendship is one not...
  5. [Enneagram Type 4] What did you study at University/College?

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    University applications have to be submitted really soon and I don't know what to do. Here are my main dilemmas: 1. Do I go into Arts or Sciences (Biology)? 2. Do I live at home or on residence? Please give me advice fellow fours who have been to university or anyone who has any input. 1. What...

    Interesting information. According to this website, the people of enneatype 4 have a tendency to present a body with the following characteristics: Generalized blockade due to hypotension.

  7. [Enneagram Type 4] Any other 4's deal with substance abuse?

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    Hi other 4 people and other people of other types. I was wondering how 4's deal with substance abuse and what you think about it.
  8. [Enneagram Type 4] What social fours are ACTUALLY like

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    I'm a social four and I have this state I can be in where I'm like in this natural state of happiness, freedom, lightness, laughter, like how you feel when you're at a picnic with your family in the summertime. That's like my happy place. It's sooo not this dark intense place that fours are...
  9. [Enneagram Type 4] What makes you think people should obsess over you?

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    I came to this realization while responding to a different thread. Fours need people to be obsessed with them, because they are obsessed with themselves. No matter how low a four's self esteem is, there is still a "self" that we nurture and care for inside of ourselves. I believe that even...
  10. Bojack Horseman Enneagram Types

    Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    Bojack Horseman is a colourful Netflix cartoon show about a horse that is actually quite depressing. But I find it really interesting and funny and I recommend watching it. This show has a really big focus on real-life personality flaws which makes it so fascinating to type them! I'm more...
  11. Why do people think Kurt Cobain was an Enneagram 5?

    Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    He's a classic 4, emotionally expressive, revealing, believing he was inherently inferior, but also believing he was above others, making things a tragedy for himself was easy. He's even stated this, he always made things sadder than they actually were. Can someone explain to me why he's typed...
  12. 4 - 4 Friendships / Relationships?

    Heart Triad - Types 2,3,4
    I have no close four friends and I am terrified of having any relationship with a four. A four-four relationship seems wild. If anyone has any can you describe them? If you can, specify what their wing is and their instinctual stacking is. (I am very nosy)
  13. Enneagram Childhood Wounds

    Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    Taken from the EnneaApp by Lori Ohlson. I'm unsure if this has been posted on PerC before, but I wanted to share in case it isn't. Type 1 These children felt heavily criticized, punished, or not good enough. Household rules may have felt inconsistent. As such, they became obsessed with being...
  14. [Enneagram Type 4] A Spotify Playlist For Type 4 Enneagram Types

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    I have created a playlist for type 4s on spotify. I am unable to post a link but my profile is under ershanno on spotify. As a four, I am drawn to music that I feel understands me. I hope that you enjoy!
  15. How do you feel about your instinctual blindspot?

    Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    Instinctual variants have been fascinating to me recently because I see how it affects my life so much. I am an so/sp, which I think, first of all, looks strange in a 4, but I also have SO much shame and anger thinking about my lacking sexual variant. Fours are always trying to find what's...
  16. EII in Socionics - Am I INFJ or INFP?

    Socionics Forum
    Hey everybody, I'm quite new to socionics, but I'm very much into the MBTI and I have a good understanding of myself as an INFJ, but after taking the Socionics test and getting EII, I realise that equates to INFP in MBTI, correct? If that's the case, does this mean I'm really an INFP in the...
  17. An unintresting post about an intresting type

  18. [Enneagram Type 4] How to cope when you aren't appreciated for your uniqueness - or even ignored?!

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    Throughout most of my life I haven't had an issue standing out and getting validation the way I want - I did a lot of theater in school and got the literal spotlight. I was a class clown that balanced disrupting the class and pleasing the teacher with creative presentations. Pretty much my whole...
  19. [Enneagram Type 4] ESTJ 4w3?

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    I know this seems like an impossible idea. Please, if anybody is willing to discuss this with me, I would greatly appreciate it. If an ESTJ was a 4w3 . . . What would that be like? Would they seem like an INFP or ISFP at first glance, but the more you got to know them, it was obvious that they...
  20. [Enneagram Type 4] Video: Imagining Your Life but Not LIVING It! {Enneagram Type 4}

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    You could spend your life imagining all of your life goals but not actually manifesting them! Well someday you must actually begin! A new movement is starting --- it is called Kellerinianism (aka: Bacon Spirituality)! It is a societal, political, spiritual, and...
