    ENFJ 4 = "look at how smart and prestigious I am!"
    INFP 4 = "Look at how pathetic I am"
    ISFP 4 = "My hometown is shittier than your hometown!"
    ENFP 4 = "su su summertime, summertime sadness"
    ISTP 4 = "Look how hardcore and badass I am!"
    ESFJ 4 = Idunno... rihanna?
    I don't think all four's do this. At least not in the more healthy levels.

    Maybe you're a 728 then! I have a neighbor in the same position--I thought she was a sp6 or 7 with a 2-fix, and I assumed a 9-fix, till I realized she basically doesn't give a crap about The Peace. If anything, she's tough, pragmatic, and inclined to throw surprising amounts of indignity around. She's super-nice, though. The last fix can be hard to see.

    I thought some stuff out this weekend. I don't have it in front of me, but I'll try to put up my ideas shortly.

I think sx/sps can be especially confusing because of our pronounced on/off switch. I think a good portion of the time we can seem sp/sx to others, unless we're on. Then you see the dominant sexual instinct in all its over-the-top glory. Sx/sos strike me as more consistently on.
    It's interesting, because I'm pretty sure I'm sx/soc but I'd never describe myself as "on". I think I'm very contained most of the time (I'm talking in the general public)--I'm still a 4w5, and I still have an ability to disappear and go unnoticed. I occasionally counteract this with a "LOOK AT ME" flamboyancy streak, but sadly, my overall life is a tale of obscurity.

    Can elaborate, but I'm trying not to hijack too much.

    These two are in my tritype as well.

    As i was figuring myself out over the years, i tried not to get in other peoples way by being overaccomodating. Iow i spent a lot of time in my 2 while chronically stressed. And true to 4form, i was ashamed of who i was and how it affected others, so i locked it all away.

    Im Enfp like SS, where most 4s are introverted, hence the off vibe
    I think my sister is the same tritype as you, and I didn't know she was a 4 either--I thought 9 or 2. Something about that tritype keeps the 4ness inside. She's an INFP, so even more internal than you.

    I'm an Ne-dom, though, and I get plenty of stuff about how I seem "seveny", at least online. I don't think 7 is even my head-fix, though. I appear introverted to most IRL.

    Yes, that's sort of a misinterpretation of the type. I'll put up my categories shortly!!

    yeah...kind of a trip to sort of realize this.

    but i never did relate much to nine...except for my generic idea about them being mellow. i relate about as much as i relate to six being my wing i guess...which is only that it sort of adds this anxious self doubt manic type thing but...only in a slightly jokey way that's just there and i'm not quite sure i believe or it just comes up to be questioned.

    i hope the enfp speak is going to work for ya there because i'm just not in the mood to try harder. :/ eek haha

    I felt that way about my 6-fix, but it makes total sense now that I understand it.

    Why'd you think 9 to begin with?

    i think i took a tritype test that said that.

    but i also always type as 7w8 but think 7w6 fits better.

    yeah i think it might! and...i always think it's important to check it against how someone close to you thinks and my bf thinks i'v got 8 in there. he said that description of 728 fits way better. i'm kinda all about freedom to do my own thing.

    thanks for your help!

    Probably true. I have absolutely no idea what a healthy 4 looks like.

    I don't think they actually exist.
