enneagram type 4

  1. What's my Enneagram type?
    Eyo! I've scratched this little itch on my back countless times, but it keeps coming back! I'd love to know your informed, outside perspective on me so that I can put my doubts to rest (although Fi will forever compel me to re-evaluate myself, ye?) I've always identified as a 4 (4w3 to be...

    As a female 4w5 I'm quite attracted to someone who is I think 2w1. We study med in the same class but he is ten years older than I am. I'm reading it's hard to tell type 2's behaviours to mean a simple friendship or a romantic interest. We are talking and having times together, walking home...

    I finally took the enneagram test and found I am a type 4. I'm not happy about it. I've hated my personality for a long time and this explains it. Apparently type 4s are self absorbed, whiny, and dramatic. The description reminds me of those snooty artist types who always think they're better...

    Well... first of all, I'm sorry. I promised myself I wouldn't come back here after the first embarrassing thread I wrote while I wasn't in the best place in my life. I cringe just remembering it, but the community here is really nice... so thank you. Honestly I'm making this looking for...

    Hi all, I've been analyzing myself for the past two years or so and am quite certain that I am both an INTJ and a type 4...which is contradictory (according to multiple sources), but it provides an interesting perspective at the same time. I was wondering if anyone else is on the same page as...

    Sometimes, I feel like I'm just a bundle of neuroses and wild yearning for romance. It's almost as if I use love as a way to feed my own desires for tragedy and drama, so what usually happens is I end up pining after someone I never pluck up the courage to speak to. And I find that romantic, the...

    Note: Originally published on my blog. Once again realized I might find people who relate to my words more on PersonalityCafe. My eternal sense of inadequacy cringes at every piece of writing I send out, but I feel that this might help some of you like-minded, strange souls. We are odd, and we...

    Do any other type 4s experience uncontrollable, intense empathy? Or is it just me? What I mean is, ever since childhood, I've felt bombarded by other people's emotions, to the point I almost felt them as if they were my own. And they could overload me so badly that I couldn't tell what was...

    A while ago, I was playing Kingdom Hearts (a game for the PlayStation 2, for those who had never heard of it). At some point in the beginning of the game, I had to pick the thing I, as the main character, fear the most. One of the three options was being different. This led to a very interesting...
