    Exactly. I don't know if others would for me either. I don't think 4s look like how people think they look. Hell, I'm not even sure what 4s look like and I am one! I might have encountered a few in my life but couldn't say with any certainty that they were. I wouldn't know how to tell unless I knew their habits well. Of the people I have known well enough (or had a distinct enough personality) to type, I would say one or two were 4s - one of my favourite lecturers I had at Uni was a 4w3 and a friend I met overseas may be a 4w5.

    To be fair, in my country 4-like behaviour is in many ways in direct opposition to the national culture, so other 4s might be withholding/disguising those traits. I know I kinda do. The two people I listed above are both foreigners (American and English), so that might tell you something.


    EDIT: Make that 3. Just remembered another (American) friend of mine who would have to be a 4w3. Again with the foreigners.

    Two for sure. One is my INFP roommate, the other is an ISFP I have known for almost 10 years.

    There are two that I am pretty sure of IRL. One INFP and one INFJ. Both are quite different.

    The only one I know in real life is this girl at my school who is POTENTIALLY a 4w5 sp/sx. IxFP for sure. You can see why we'd get along fine. Before all this I don't think I ever knew any 4s. All of them were 6s, 7s and one of them 9w8. Maybe on a daily basis I see a bunch of 4s, I think they're harder to detect than you'd think. Due to the stereotypes and all, and most people not really knowing what a healthy 4 looks like. Apparently healthy E4 teenagers exist.

    Less than five? Most I knew from the forum first, one might be a 9 (94x instead of 49x).

    none? I don't even know any NFPs, at least I've never recognized one, I know some ENFJs though.... 4s are rare, I know a lot of 7s and 6s, some 3s and 2s and maybe one or two 5s.

    I think most people would type me as a 5w4, 549 tritype.

    I agree. I think David Fauvre is a perfect example of this. I've seen people say there's no way he's a sexual 468 but I see no reason why not. Sexual fours, especially if they are INFP 4w5s, are not as externally crazy/flamboyant as people (non fours especially) make them out to be.

    And the two fours that I know for sure are fours is because I know extremely personal things about them/ how their minds work, and because one of them knows all about personality theory.

    I don't "look" like a 4 either (not even to myself...it took me quite some time to figure it out!). From the outside, I probably give out 5, 7, and 8 vibes.

    I think that 4s have a way of being that fits but kinda sidesteps descriptions and if you're looking to see if your 4 matches, you might come up with a miss.

    Yeah, good points about the way 4's look (or don't look) all around. I'm not sure I really take appearance into consideration specifically, though I do see similarities between myself and the 4's I know-- not traits really, but expressions, attention to aesthetics, and the way we communicate with others and talk. I think determining the type of a person is pretty simple by process of elimination if you interact with or observe that person enough, but confirmation of that can certainly only be had via the individual.

    Most people have pegged me as 5, 4, 1 or 8.

    Just one right now (my 4w5 mom), but I think I've known at least two more in the past.
