i feel like 7s, 4s, and 1s have a deep individualistic streak. they really focus on being in control of how they shape their own experience. they all learn a kind of art to it, to an aspect of experience, which makes them very interesting and inherently creative and at times excellent role models and arbiters of how to deal with your shit and still be a good person.
2s, 5s, and 8s, by contrast, kind of overidentify with the world itself. 3s, 6s, and 9s overidentify with others. not that these are only bad, because 3s, 6s, and 9s master the art of rapport, and teamwork, and relationship. 2s, 5s, and 8s who learn to love themselves serve the world.
Every once and a while I'll hit something I didn't mean to hit with my stylus...and I'll end up on some page I didn't mean to end up on... that's what happened here but since I am a 7 I'll just throw in a word or two before I end up somewhere else I wasn't intending to go.
I imagine it is because I'm a 7 sx...but I feel no different really from the INFP 4w5s I encounter along the way...(I adore them) but I can't always say the same for the INFJ 4w5s... <--and its not necessarily a sense of things being too intense I've decided because I appreciate intensity of feeling, etc. I appreciate an individual that can provide for me some of that depth when all I can see is the horizon beyond the horizon. But there needs to be a purpose or I can end up feeling like I am drowning. INFJ 5w4s and xNFJ 6w5s seem to automatically provide for me this purpose and I can't quite figure out what the difference is beyond 'head type' but I'm given a snorkel (totally just wanted to use the word *snorkel* which is a beautiful word and should be put to use more often.) There's a sense that something in the future will be improved upon for all that depth...the purpose isn't just the depth itself with no forward movement.
Through every forest, above the trees
Within my stomach, scraped off my knees
I drink the honey inside your hive
You are the reason I stay alive
