    I mistook a 9 for a 4.

    I posted a link about that in another thread.

    People who type 4s put way too much weight on the stereotypical descriptions, and not enough on the basics (the 4's core fears/desires, (dis)integration and feedback loops). I believe a couple of INFPs here, even, are mistyped p6w7s and 9w1s, but I am of course relying on forum personas which don't always correspond to reality. Basically...I won't push it.

    Re OP's question, I don't have any 4s in my day to day life, but if I did, I actually doubt that we'd get on well.

    Same. I would ask if the people who know me irl gave a shit about typology but they don't, so oh well.

    Only one, my brother-in-law's sister is an INFJ e4, I love her because she's one of the few people I know that appreciate creativity.

    I am a 4.
    I dated another 4.
    I had a friend in college who I'm sure was a 4.

    Two other girls - maybe 4s. Not 100% sure.



    that's 3 definite 4s irl (I have met myself)
    and two highly probable 4s.

    Why do you say that?

    A lot of 4s seem to be INFPs; 9 fixed and very strong Feelers.

    I am quite different - cold, harsh and bound to offend your delicate sensibilities.

    I am also prone to envy, and can become very defensive of anything I consider to be part of my identity. My apologies for being vague here, but I'd rather not get into specifics.

    I understand. I don't have "delicate" sensibilities. In fact, that's partly the reason why I have a hard time embracing 4. There's a kind of dandyism to how the type manifests among people that makes me cringe.
