    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.
  3. [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...
  4. [Enneagram Type 4] Type Fours; What's your experience Falling in Love

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    I want to know from experienced, (hopefully) matured Type 4s, what their experience has been like falling in love. I am young and am falling in love for the second time in my life. It's different than having a crush because somehow if I'm not in love, my romanticism will find someone to project...
  5. [Enneagram Type 4] Don't Go - Type Four

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    I am specifically curious as to how core-Fours, and those with Four wings, feel about either this song and (/or) the lyrics. To elaborate, I am interested in how you relate to it (in general, past experiences, etc.) and how it makes you feel, in itself. LYRICS: "Don't Go" - Bring Me The...

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    This description of type four has some really good and informative points, especially in regards to health and growth.
  7. [Enneagram Type 4] Are you afraid of being different?

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    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...
  8. [Enneagram Type 4] physical VS emotional sensitivity in FOURS?

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    Is it just me (a 4w5) but do other Four's find that they are physically really sensitive just as they are emotionally? I have very thin skin that bruises easily; I sneeze from the slightest dust irritation; My eyes water easily; I pick up others' illnesses easily; I am hugely sensitive to...
  9. [Enneagram Type 4] Verbal Affection: Yes, No, How?

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    Dearest Fours, I keep reading that your type loves compliments and verbal affection. I want to be able to give you this, but it's not a skill that comes naturally to me and it tends to make me feel awkward. I need your help. Is verbal affection, such as compliments and affirmations, important...
  10. [Enneagram Type 4] The trouble with enneagram

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    Very little has been said about this. Even though I feel this is a Pandora's box, I also feel what I am going to say can be outrightly dismissed. I wish there was an easier, perhaps more convincing and sophisticated way of saying this. If there is one, I do not know of it. So I will say it...
  11. Post inaccurate type descriptions

    Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    I think it's a good idea to make an inaccurate descriptions and videos thread. I think that such a thread would probably avoid further mistypes and is good for venting. Well, I had stumbled across this horribly inaccurate Four description on YouTube: Also, I cannot stand the descriptions...
  12. Maybe I'm not alone?

    I'm really sorry if I'm doing this wrong; I just joined and I'm not entirely sure what the whole routine is for posting things, or if there even is one. Well I'm 16 and I've always felt like I'm different from everyone else; nobody really understands me it seems. I've been going through some...
  13. [Enneagram Type 4] 4's: what enneagram types are you attracted to? (with wings!)

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    I'm really curious about what enneagram types 4's find attractive. I'm talking average-level individuals of each type and wing... I know the wings add a big difference to different types, and I know, with some types, I'm attracted to one wing but not the other. I wonder if a pattern emerges...
  14. [Enneagram Type 4] Your Four Work Rhythm?

    Heart Triad - Types 2,3,4
    Hi! I'm a 4w3 and I work in a creative industry although my personal role is more sales than creativity. There are days when my brain switches "ON!" and I get done the work of 5 people, and at 1 AM am still going strong, coming up with new ideas and super-managing everything. I am a marvel on...

  16. [Enneagram Type 4] Type Four: The Individualist (Timeless' Description)

    Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    Some people see the world as dangerous, and some see it as safe. Some see it as just or unjust. Nevertheless, we all live in the same world. Elements of our personality color our views, and human perception is little more than an inkblot test. One purpose of the Enneagram of Personality is to...
  17. [Enneagram Type 6] 6s Mistyped as 4s

    Type 6 Forum - The Loyalist
    Has anyone else here thought they were a 4 at one point? I still wonder if I am, but I've only recently discovered that I might be a 6. When my sister originally forced me to take the Rheti Sampler about a year ago, I tested as a 6, but I disregarded it because I didn't resonate all that much...
  18. Newbie Here. :]

    Hello there! I really, really don't know how to get started on here! Right now I'm just winging it and hoping I'm not making a fool out of myself! I joined this forum because (and does it really need to be stated?) I love personality typing. And psychology in general. And I own every book I've...
  19. How We Stay Stuck

    Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    Once we establish our personality styles or paradigms to help us apprehend and navigate around the world, we can either keep them pliant, flexible, accommodating, and up to date; or we can rigidly maintain them, assimilating everything into them, and suffer what Joel Barker (1992) calls...
  20. The Three Vs of the Enneagram

    Enneagram Personality Theory Forum
    Author: Jerry Wagner When I was first introduced to the Enneagram, we got only the bad stuff -- the distortions, fixations, compulsions, exaggerations, vices, bad breath, etc. When I, in turn, presented the Enneagram styles this way, people would ask: "Isn’t there anything good about any...
