    Besides 4's I have 7's in my life, a 6 and a 9. For me I can tell the difference between 4's 6's and 9's irl like night and day, but I am a 469 and my ex was a INFP 9. 3w4s smell very funny. There was a 5w4 or a 4w5 I was very unsure of, that's the only time I was a bit confused.

    I know about three 4's in real life. I'm 5w4 myself, so they're easy to spot. They're one of the types I tend to prefer as friends. But, they also tend to be more obvious online where they can express their four-ness more explicitly.

I think your tendency to assume 9 for other INFP's makes sense, as I think (from reading and my own research) that 9 is much more common, at least in the western world.

    @chickpea I have a lot of 7 and 9 in my life as well, but the front runners on my spreadsheet are 3 and 2 followed by 6 (in that order).

    What's a 4 like? INFP? Is that like, an idealist head in the clouds artsy type?

    If so, I know a guy that, while I don't think he's that artsy, he likes to think he is. He must be in the unhealthy range cuz he's got his head so far up his ass it's remarkable.

    I think part of it has to do with the obscene amounts of weed he smokes. Like, if I smoked that much, it would probably be the first marijuana OD death in history.

    I've lived with him for a total of 3 years, trust fund kid. I got the very strong feeling his identity was "pothead" and he was/is very proud of it. Always talking about pot, how great it is, how you should smoke a lot everyday, and so on. Laziest guy I've ever known. More or less lived in his recliner with the bong in his lap.

    I feel kinda bad cuz I got him to smoke for the first time. Oh well.

    Much of that obviously comes from having tons of money, so therefore no ambition, in his case anyway.

    Sorry such a negative example! I could be wrong about the 4 tho.

    I was in a design school with a lot of creative people, many VERY talented, and probably placed a lot of their identity into their art. I'm sure a lot were 4s.

    I can think of 2-3. That's all at the moment, although I didn't really wrack my brain.

    I know more INFPs IRL than that, but e9 shows up a lot, not e4.

    Oh jeeze.. I don't know if I truly know any irl. I must know at least one.. but the truth is, I can ID fellow 8s, and 7s with a bit less struggle.. but typing all those other types completely opposite of me? Not so great at it. :/

    I know of one. He maybe a 5w4, but even so, I'm sure he's a 4. Thinks I'm just socially awkward.

    Oh the things I didn't write in my biography.
