    Default I am never going to understand this.

    I am a four, but I read the instinctual variant descriptions and the sexual five followed by the sp five describe me so well it's absurd, way more so than the four instinctual variant descriptions.

    Can someone explain this to me?

    Maybe you're a Five?

    Don't label yourself as a Four because you're "sensitive" or lack confidence or have a poor self-image - it's an easy thing to do, and anyone can suffer from those things. Fours are defined by their passion (keyword: PASSION!) for envy and emotional outpourings.

    Avarice, secrecy, hiding emotional involvement, fear, "doing without", over-thinking, neither moving toward or against - paralysed out of fear and removed from the playing field.

    Those are some weird definitions. Not to mention most are so subjective.

    I think it's pretty much spot on. How is it inaccurate?

    If it is, I'm not a five. :P

    I'm extremely immaterialistic, I don't have or hold secrets, I'm not often emotionally involved but that's not because I hide it, apart from instinctual fears I don't fear all that much, Not sure what "doing without" means, over-thinking is a matter of opinion based on perspective, I'm moving toward things I like and against things I don't as much as the next person, I have never felt paralysed for whatever reason in my life.

    Well, I'm not trying to describe you, am I? :P

    I guess I'm describing Fives in terms of their "passion", as a counterpoint to my earlier describing of the "passion" of Fours - the "low" side of the type, rather than trying to ascribe some sort of fully fledged personality. I think the "healthy" versions of each type tend to blur into each other far too easily, so it's harder to make the distinction between them.
