    - your self esteem has the best freaking defense in the world - every mistake and failure is another step forward in your self-seeking journey, every flaw in your character found is an awesome discovery, other people need to protect their esteem like a fortress, yours is a whore house inviting all the enemies in.
    This reminds me of the confrontation you() have with Mr.Freeze in Batman:Arkham City( it's not a big spoiler if you haven't played it) :when you attack him in a certain way, using certain method he learns and triggers an effect to prevent that attack from happening a second time, so you can never attack him in the same manner again. Yeah, maybe not the best analogy but I think its close enough
    Anyway you managed to describe it so well, I almost feel like starting a confrontation with someone lol I'm all like:
    Hey, by that reasoning maybe if 4s start one confrontation every day our self-confidence will be off the charts
    Yeah, I feel I may have stumbled upon something

You embrace the fact that you don't have to be different to have human value and that you were born with it. It was your birthright as it is everyone elses' and that we are by nature varied and that what is called personality is a whole you've built all along in the search for it constructed from a stream of actions, attitudes you've adopted and life decisions and you end up with a unique painting but there is no judge who will hand you a prize for it or rate it in any way. The beauty was in the joy and passion of the moment of painting it and it was shared then and there with the people who surrounded you at those moments. There is great beauty and uniqueness and tragedy and joy in each painting and it's ok.

    - Contrary to popular belief, you actually do care for the opinions of others, to an extent, but only if their opinion is that of someone you respect, someone you feel possessing "good tastes." This is the elitist/aristocratic aspect of E4s.

    On a side note, how do guys feel about the integration/disintegration theories? For example E4 integrates to 1 when healthy, but disintegrates to 2 when unhealthy, easy right? But what about the wings? For example, if you are a 4w3, is it possible, when unhealthy, to exhibit tendencies of 4 disintegrating to 2 AND 3 disintegrating to 9? Similar with 4w5, disintegrating to both 2 and 7. I ask because I exhibit both the 2 clinginess and 9 apathy/slothiness when I was unhealthy and vice versa (integration to E1 and E6) when healthy. Can anyone relate to any of this?


    ME, ME, ME, ME and ME.

    You're internally an emo piece of shit who's blog consists of nothing but whining. Also, when dumb fake as hell fucks with "OMGZ I'M SUCH A BAD ASS" syndrome, or any of it's many other forms, make you want to resurrect Napoleon Bonaparte so he can kill them for you(because you are NOT going to risk infection by doing so yourself and you probably couldn't since you are a small, wimpy, wimpy girl.) just so you can defile their graves afterwards.

    That stuff's probably all just me though.

    Hmm... interesting thread.
    If only I had understood all of these things earlier, maybe I would've been a better companion that my ex deserves.
    Only she who attempts the absurd can achieve the impossible... and then some.

    Guess what, your wish is granted two years later

    I've fallen for Italy (all parts of this country is a delight, art and sense of beauty everywhere), New York, Amsterdam, everywhere you can express your uniqueness without being judged. Sorry to disappoint you but France isn't an ideal place for that (and for many other things).

    Don't know if it's a charasteric of the 4s, but discovering new places in this world is like exploring new parts of yourself. It's an inner quest.
    IMO we never truly feel like we belong anywhere, no matter where we are, but at the same time it can be really exciting or, at least, secretly enjoyable to always feel like an alien on earth.

    You're hesitant to share your favorite music with someone because to you music is a very personal thing, a true form of inner expression.

    When you once could relate to the obsession of Gabriel Ardalianovitch (oups I just found that his english name is Gavril Ardalionovich) from "The Idiot".

    Our friend, Ganya, belonged to the other class—to the "much cleverer" persons, though he was from head to foot permeated and saturated with the longing to be original. This class, as I have said above, is far less happy. For the "clever commonplace" person, though he may possibly imagine himself a man of genius and originality, none the less has within his heart the deathless worm of suspicion and doubt; and this doubt sometimes brings a clever man to despair. (As a rule, however, nothing tragic happens;—his liver becomes a little damaged in the course of time, nothing more serious. Such men do not give up their aspirations after originality without a severe struggle,—and there have been men who, though good fellows in themselves, and even benefactors to humanity, have sunk to the level of base criminals for the sake of originality.
    (Sorry I haven't found the passage in its entirety)

    When you loved this novel.
    ...
    Or maybe when you just love Dostoesvky.
    ...
    And when, deep down, you know everything else is literature for plebeians.

    (kidding... a bit)
    To exist is to change, to change is to mature, to mature is to go on creating oneself endlessly.
    Henri Bergson

    C'est faux de dire: Je pense : on devrait dire : On me pense.
    It is wrong to say: I think. One should say: I am thought.
    Arthur Rimbaud

    I've been wrestling with type 6w5, type 5w4, and type 4w5 when trying to type myself but, your description here is making me lean towards 4w5 I'm a bit confused.

    - sharing your unique thoughts is sort of like a dog taking an intellectual dump, you just need to get it out, it rarely matters how important is the place, as long as you know your leaving it where others can smell it and its all the better if it's where you've sensed the unique smell of others, preferably of the opposite sex (perhaps more so for the Extroverted SX/SO 4s)."
    LMFAO
