Asking input from you other 4w3'ers.
I read at some point (and I'm too lazy to go back and dig it up - I assume you probably came across it as well) that the 4w3 e-type might be one of the most conflicted of all the types, simply because the nature of 3 and 4 is so VERY different. I have personally found this to be the case.
I am curious about what kinds of inner battles take place in you guys. THe more examples you can give that shows how the conflict manifests in concrete fashion, the better.
No, I'm not looking at others weaknesses to feel better, scrap that idea. What I am really hoping for here, is some insight on how some of the more aligned 4w3's have managed to accomplish it. I also want to see if the conflicts we have are similar.
E3 Vs E4 reference
self assured vs. self aware
charming - charming
ambitious vs authentic
outgoing vs reserved
competent vs witholding self and at times, melancholy
energetic vs mellow
status conscious vs self conscious
advancement driven vs individually driven
define life by success vs define life by being different
disconnects with true feelings and mirrors environement vs connects to true feelings and often rejects status quo environement
Now I realize these charactoristics are not all in opposition, some traits can co exist with others.. but many of them definately seem to be at odds.
I am personally baffled at how these two people can both reside inside myself, yet they do. I try to understand the blending, but it seems to be so circumstantial. The only thing that I'm sure of is that I often wear my e3 to the world and my e4 to those in my very close inner circle. This just doesn't align well with my inner 4, though the 3 certainly doesn't mind =D
Anyhow, add whatever you'd like to. What is your experience in being 4w3?
