    Default Signs You're a Type 4

    You know you're a type 4 when:

    - You find beauty in the most unusual things.
    - Learning is a beautiful emotional experience for you. It's not just absorbing knowledge; it's a wondrous experience where knowledge brings light to everything around you.
    - You've always felt different from everyone else.
    - Your clothing style may change depending on your mood.
    - You're on the constant pursuit to figure out just who you really are, and where you belong in the world.
    - You consider your tastes in art, music, literature, as well as your favorite topics of study, as a part of your identity... I am ______.
    - There's not enough ways to pour out your creative energy.
    ....

    Feel free to add to the list.

    - You feel slightly disappointed when someone else feels/does something that you thought only you felt/did.
    - You feel suffocated when you're restricted from expressing your individuality.
    - You thrive on self-expression.
    - You fear finding out that you're a sham who's just the same as everyone else, that you're not truly "unique".
    - You secretly hope people will notice that you're different.
    - You take pride in your ability to be honest with yourself and your flaws.
    - You are familiar/comfortable with your "dark side" and willingly embrace it, thorns and all, in the hopes of discovering some deeper truth about yourself.

    - you don't care about impressing others, but you want to express yourself
    - others have called you self absorbed and dramatic
    - you hate doing all the fruitless, ungalamorous labor that most people seem to spend 60% of their life doing
    - you have an almost complete inability to do something you're not interested in
    - you are disgusted when someone asks you to "fit in"
    - when wearing any kind of uniform for school, work or any kind of activity, you find subtle ways to distinguish yourself by messing with it to make it look better
    - you either dress with complete apathy or do a 180 and look like your own version of a glamorous celebrity
    - you are disgusted by anyone who is fake, emotionally dishonest or people pleasing
    - you really don't care about other people at all except on an ethical level, with the exception of a few close friends
    - you frequently fight the urge to talk about yourself and encourage others to talk about themselves more

    These are good. I can pretty much relate to all of it.

    Ooohh...I've been beating myself up for feeling like this. Now I have something to blame for it. Sweet.

    - You feel weird about people having to be subservient to you, and would rather do something on your own. (Applicable for 4w5 sp's)
    - Even though you may border a type 5 trait of being a total nerd, and may seem like an intellectual b*tch, deep down you feel emotions strongly.
    - You feel anger like blackness and darkness, sadness like a torrential rainstorm, happiness like a glowing heaven.
    - Often times you've felt the world has gotten you beaten, but then some creative idea comes up inside your mind, and this creative vision is what keeps you alive, and you're brought back up from the ground.
    - Something from the past haunts you, it's like a ghost never quite leaves your presence, and it makes you feel like an empty vessel, yearning to be filled.
    - For you, art and music aren't just background wallpapering, or something to keep you entertained, it's something that touches your soul, something that keeps you alive, a part of your being.
    - You've been told by your peers that you're focused, independent, and don't let anyone stand in your way to achieving what you want.

    - and then at some point your worst fear is confirmed and you actually are like everyone else, but it's not terrible like you thought and it actually frees you up to express yourself more fully because the pressure to be artificially markedly different for the fear that without your difference you'd be nothing is erased. 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.

    You think you are special.
    You used to be an Indigo child.
    Your values always come first. They also come before other people's values.
