    What types are the best match for someone who is 4w3? In terms of friendship? Romantic relationship? I just started learning about enneagram personality types and I'm just curious to see what everyone's thoughts are. I think I'm a balanced 4 but depending on which test I take and when I take...

  4. Transcending your enneagram personality? (Type 4 heh)

    Hello, I'm new- hopefully I'm doing things right... The reason I created an account is because I had a pressing question although it's quite difficult to explain. What I want to ask is; at what point does your objective interpretation of reality deserve to be taken for granted instead...
  5. [Enneagram Type 4] Type 4's and Bad Relationships/Being Sucky at Relationships

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    Type 4's are really, really interesting when it comes to relationships. Personally, I've found that fours have the potential to be exceptional therapists from their ability to dive deep into both their own and others' emotions. They also tend to love quite passionately and value sentimental...

  8. When shy people are crushin'

    Sex and Relationships
    Ok, first off, I really wouldn't describe myself as shy, but I am introverted and I do have a 5 wing, so being outgoing and talking to strangers just doesn't feel good like 90% of the time. I know how to flirt with guys and I feel like I'm rather good at it. But like, what do you do when the...
  9. [Enneagram Type 4] 4's do you like to complain?

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    Do y'all just like to complain? I know I do. I love to whine about shit all the time. It's like how I deal. People will get on my case and say that I'm negative, or feel like they have to offer me advice or in some way fix things. But I'm just blowing off steam. I find it so annoying that...
  10. [Enneagram Type 5] Does any other Type 5 {or Type 1) have issues with Type 4s?

    Type 5 Forum - The Investigator
    Me and Type 4s in life can never get along and I know a lot of those who are Type 4s. They are very tiring and draining. I am not looking forward to meet obnoxious, gloomy, irritating people who try to affect others around them. There are people who try to make a reaction out of others with...
  11. [Enneagram Type 4] Social 4 is searching for friends

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    Hey, I'm a social 4 and don't have any friends. So I thought it would be interesting if I could chat with someone who is also a social 4... just to see if we are on the same wavelength. I've been struggling with something and it would be pretty cool if someone is willing to leave me a message...
  12. [Enneagram Type 4] Is feeling isolated further isolating us or is everyone feeling isolated these days?

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    Or both? I'm still new to learning about the Enneagram, so I'd imagine that it says something about how our perceived isolation leads to further isolation. But I am hearing that almost everyone I know is perceiving themselves as isolated these days. I do live in the Pacific NW, and from what...
  13. [Enneagram Type 4] What is a 4w3 like?

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    Hi everyone! I know there are many descriptions on the 4w3 out there, but I wanted to sort of 'verify' my own take on the type to see if I match this personality type. Please share your own ideas and feel free to tell me if I am way off; I'd like my knowledge to expand. I see the 4w3 as a type...
  14. I don't know if I'm Type 4, 6, or 7? ENTP

    What's my Enneagram type?
    I took 4 different tests a few times and I keep getting either 4, 6, or 7. I can't seem to figure out which one I am though because I feel like all of them are really accurate. I don't really know what to do about that, so is anyone else having a similar issue or is able to give some insight to...
  15. Is Enneagram affected by adverse childhood experiences?

    Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    Hello, I have been wondering lately the affects of adverse childhood experiences on the personality. If one is born with their enneagram type, does this affect their reaction to these experiences, or does the experience shape their personality or warp their perception of it? I have recently...
  16. I Was Mistyped!

    What's my personality type?
    When I first did mbti tests online, I was tested as ISTJ. However after reading the description, did careful introspection about myself, tried my best to recall everything about me including people's feedback, I realized that I'm far from being a sensor because to be honest, I really hate...
  17. Am I a 4 or a 7? Most likely 4, but I just gotta ask, you know?

    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...

  19. [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...
  20. [Enneagram Type 4] Type 4 and Victim Complexes?

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    Hi everyone! This might get really dark and/or personal, so be warned So I've been thinking about victim complexes lately, since I'm trying to come to terms with my own demons. Everywhere I look, people with victim complexes/identities are ALWAYS displayed in a negative light, and...
