    Default Are 3w4s more Bohemian or Professional?

    Would you say a 3w4 is more likely to look like a charming, personable business man or lawyer (like a 3w2), or are they more bohemian-esque (like a 4w3)?

    3 is like a chameleon type... not that the individuals change their persona so much as the type itself seems able to resemble other types, which makes individuals of that type look very differently if you consider surface traits that are only loosely correlated to a type as it is.

    This has to do with whatever external ideals the individual has internalized & whatever aspect of themselves their vanity extends from. Generally, they have a much more polished demeanor in public than a 4w3. It's like whatever they are marketing themselves as, they can come across a little too "perfect" in the role.

    ^So basically one 3w4 could be a popular good-looking quarterback, while another 3w4 could be a well-respected avant-garde artist.

    I think 3w4 matches well with an Fe dom type. My ex I debated was 3w2 or 3w4. Growing up in Vegas with hippie parents and a subscription to Fangoria, he doesn't exactly look like a Bible beater.

    His ISTJ mother is religious, his ISTP father NOT AT ALL.

    He grew up in L.A. and Vegas, with money and without, but mostly with very liberal, permissive values.

    He believes in family, sexual fidelity, neighborhood, and overall just loyalty and what he calls "heart." He cries over movies and will fight over his territory.

    His favorite movies include films like Old Boy and Opera.

    He's an agnostic atheist who believes in evil, but not in organized religion. He's openly expressive of emotion and giving in practical ways but not Keirsey's idiotic 1950s ideal of Midwestern America.

    ESFJs are keen to the loyalty of the reality of what they were raised with. Even if that means belonging to the Italian mafia.

    I definitely also see him as a very showy stereotypical ESFJ 3, in not being conservative, but being "showy" and social climbing.

    I remember when I dyed my hair red and was in a magazine he wanted to "show me off." He loved that I was the envy of his loser friends and their chubby single parent gf's. He was very in love with my social accomplishment. He remembered who was popular in middle school, in high school. He wanted me to appear like his type and fit in with his people.

    I know another 3 ESFJ who is very sexually attractive at 50, dates younger men, but otherwise is very socially appropriate, has four kids, very giving and dinner cooking mom type, and owns her own business.

    They're like "what's proper but also what's dominant."

    That's how I see 3s.

    But he was "bohemian."

    You can't define personality types by social movement!

    ^^I always pictured average 3w4s as more like "you (plebeians) don't have to like me, but I'm still objectively sh-tting on you at the end of the day", which strikes me as Fi-motivated. A 3w2 on the other hand might think "Well, that's strange. I could've sworn I made a good impression."

    3w2's want to be like Jesus out in the open while a 3w4 wants to be Ares disguised as a handsome man in a suit.
