    Excellent points. These also helped confirm to me that I'm 6 (although I think that I am 6w5 but with fairly balanced wings.) I only thought I was 4 quite temporarily, because I thought INFJs were "supposed" to be 4s... I know at least a couple of people (both of whom I believe to be xNFP) who are almost stereotypically 4, and that's where I really see the differences between us.

    yes indeed. i had a suitemate who i am 98% sure was IxFP 4w5 and i really saw the differences between us. i'm guessing she probably found me a little too flippant and conformist and i found her a little bizarre and dark... (not that i don't appreciate bizarre... but i felt like sometimes she was doing it for the sake of being different...)

    am an artist.

    i think magic poriferan hit it on the head when saying both 4 and 6 (and 8) are emotionally turbulent. but 6 is more externally seeking and 4 is more internally seeking, which i think is a very telling distinction in many people. for me it was the dual realization that: a) i do not tend to purposefully amplify emotions and b) i do not have identity issues along with the confirmation that i was very fueled by anxiety that told me 6 instead of 4.
    Same. Especially the bolded.

    Also, I highly agree with Courtney Love looking a lot like a 4. A couple of years or so ago, I saw a documentary featuring her and the way she acted with how she was open with her feelings as well as her disturbed childhood just made me think 4 for her.

    Are all fours "emotionally turbulent"? I have a pretty heavy four wing. So much so, I mistyped for a long time. It didn't feel right though as I'm pretty clinical and detached for the most. It wasn't until I read a couple of 5 descriptions that were less heavily centered on scientific analysis, and more artistically skewed that I realized I'm a five. It sits much easier especially when you take instinctual variants into account.

    Tori Amos seems more 3ish than 4ish. She tends to take on various personas for her albums like Madonna does.

    I don't understand how anybody would mistake Dennis Rodman as a 4. Way too much aggression.

    Internally, yes. There is a mistaken notion they are drama queens, as in, having conflicts with others a lot and being very talkative about their feelings. I actually think a lot of people with interpersonal drama are 2s and 6s. But anyway, 4s are turbulent inside, but outside they often appear withdrawn, subtly moody, and using indirect expression for feelings to ease vulnerability (that's why there's a heavy association with the arts).

    One description of 4s uses these phrases, which I think imply the correct kind of emotional expression/drama for 4s: "symbolic drama; withdrawn melancholy".

    The wing makes a difference as well:

    Average 4/3 is emotionally spicy. Because of the conflict between the three-wing's desire to be in the spotlight and the four's self-conscious fear of exposure, they may alternate between extremes of extroversion and introversion. Unlike the cooler 3/4s, 4/3s may find it difficult (if not impossible) to stay calm when emotions come up. They are more likely to talk about their overwhelming feelings than the much more rational, analytical, withdrawn 4/5s.
    Average 4/5 is emotionally heavy. Powerful, passionate feelings and aesthetic appreciations swell within and then get bottled up inside. 4/5s generally avoid expressing their feelings because they feel that no one could possibly understand them. Like 4/3, they feel special and different, but 4/5 is more likely to withdraw into sullen silence than to make a big public scene. 4/5 and 5/4 both have strong feelings which they repress, but because their feelings are stronger than their repression, 4/5s are more aware than 5/4 of their inner emotional state. Consequently, they are more likely to become depressed. There is a kind of delicacy to 4/5 that is not usually present in 4/3.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    And...
    Arthur Rimbaud, he seems very 4ish, and im open to his typing, maybe a 4w3 Sx/So, but he seems more 7w8 to me. Same for Oscar Wilde, but 7w6.
