    Thanks, this confirmed my type. I'm a 3w4 INFJ! I'm in second year at university now. Finishing school, moving out and getting into a good university was a really big goal for me and I was really driven in my planning, which payed off since I got into a good university that I'm really happy with. However, now I'm sometimes apathetic, melancholic or depressed. In those moments it just seems like such a long way to go to achieve my other bigger goals - like graduating from uni, getting a dream job, starting a family etc. I don't seem to see the sense in working towards smaller goals when I don't see how it fits into my bigger plan. I like to plan ahead and think about the future a lot. I already have the next few years planned out in my head (what to study for my Master's and where, what jobs I would consider when I'm done with university, where I would like to live if I had a family, how many children I would want to have, and what would be possible names for them and just generally what kind of a person I would want to be.) But I find that thinking about the future and everything that could go wrong and what alternatives I should consider, can become really tiring if there are no results, that push me this or that way on my map of success. That all the little achievements tie into my big goals is something I theoretically know, but cannot believe with my heart. The relation between speaking up in class or doing some extra studying and eventually graduating with a good mark does not seem as closely related to me as it really is. Or that it's better if I decide to work out instead of sitting on the couch most of the day. Or that if I manage to get rid of bad habits and work on such things as being a good friend etc. I will eventually be more like the person I actually want to be. I don't feel like this all the time, but these feelings keep returning regularily and make me far too passive in my own life. At those times I really have to try hard to remind myself of my hopes, wishes and values.

    I'm an INTJ 3w4. Your description of the 3w4 pretty much describes how I've been building my career path. Pretty much been analyzing the right time to start advancing and getting all the skills and knowledge needed for it.

    There's a trend that starts around the 4 point in the Enneagram, mostly with 4 and 5 that has that mindset. :3 Like they're going to retreat and pretty much leave the world so they can prepare and strengthen themselves until they think they're ready - and then they're going to make some kind of amazing comeback and be more powerful than ever. Like they need to have a 'rehearsal' for whatever life brings them. For some reason I just think that's really cool.

    Just think of Rocky and play Eye of the Tiger. ;)

    I believe Tony Stark is a 3w2! ;)
    (And Steve Rogers is a 1w2)

    I can't for the life of me figure out which of those two I am! I'm super driven for achievement, am a proactive, goal-oriented and project-oriented leader, and I judge myself based on how much I achieve in the world (Wanting it both for the glamour and recognition of the world, and to prove to myself I am indeed awesome). I Share my vision and success with those I'm closest to by utilizing their talents as well. I want to leave my mark on the world!

    Yet I also seemingly contradict myself because I am also highly idealistic and assertive when it comes to protecting those I care about from the injustices of the world. I know what's right, and I speak up and stand my ground no matter the consequence, and HAVE to defend those I care about, along with my personal values. I also have very high standards for myself in both these areas.

    The ultimate clash of the Id and Superego??
    Any suggestions anyone? By the way, I'm an INFJ and definitely sx if that could have anything to do with it.

    "' [ISTJs] are more solid and unchanging.'"
    Well, this would explain things.

    It has been a while since I read this, but as time goes on.
    Everything of a 3w2 is 100% me, it's so freaky.
