i read something recently about enneagram 7's having a hard time with their core feelings or something and focus too much on outside stimuli ...maybe i can find it again but made me wonder if it made you feel more ne than fi or is it just that ep thing...like do 4's have an easier time feeling intense emotions than 7's?
There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.
Yes, I think so. I'm a 4w3 and I have very intense emotions. I think that perhaps 4w5s are intense but use slightly less theatrics than I do, no matter their type. 9s are always "nicer" or at least more easy going than I am, and 7s are easy going but aren't as passive as 9s and still seem to be less intense than me.

People of the same type with different enneagram types are drastically different. Also people with different instincts are drastically different too. I find it extremely difficult to stay interested in people with the sexual instinct last, it's like they are super dull to me. sp/so types are a struggle to even get close to, so/sp is the same. It just feels like a fake interaction. But with sexual firsts... it's great. Regardless of any other letter or classification system, if they are all different but we are both sexual firsts, it works out great.
