    When I saw the title of the thread I figured you were probably a 4. The idea that another type would be better is a construct of the ego. The purpose of understanding the Enneagram is to learn how to transcend the trap of the ego, and for a 4 specifically it's to let go of the idea that you're inherently flawed and superior/inferior because of it.

    The antidote to the 4 trap, as taught to me by Dr. Wyatt Woodsmall is the acceptance that everything is exactly as it should be.

    What I personally found very helpful was to first become conscious of how envious I was and once I'd done that to work through it by repeating the phrase in my head 'everything is exactly as it should be.' Any 4 should find that phrase very therapeutic.

    Once you start to work through it you'll stop feeling like it's any better to be another type and realize that it's only better to accept yourself and to evolve.

    Thanks. Actually the title was kind of a challenge to draw people in. I know 4's tend to bemoan themselves, I was just curious about how other people felt about themselves in respect to all these letters and numbers they give themselves. Yeah, I've never wanted to be anything different than I am. But, I wouldn't mind being able to selectively turn it off occasionally with a little switch or something.

    ESFJ 6w7? Anyone?

    Although I'm not necessarily talking about myself, as my type will most likely never be known, but that combination sounds like doom to me.

    ENFP + 7w6 = a double dose of being delusional, head-in-the clouds/day-dreamy, self centered, energetic, optimistic and adventurous.
    meh, definitely has it's ups and downs. I can think of types I'd much rather be or much rather not be

    i'm not particular confident about my enneagram or my tri-type to say how i feel about having them, since on many aspects i don't feel like i have them to began with.

    however, i do think i am lucky, because it so happened that this is one of the best time windows in history to be an ENTP in:
    esoteric love of art being replaced by the cult of Design, the availability of steady jobs and expectation of corporate royalty that used to be the Si-dom's reward is disappearing in favor of a rapid revolving doors throughout the labor market while people continue to develop the means of taking initiatives, what used to be done by Se is now more often than not done in front of a computer where you can try one design after another before ever bringing it to out into prototyping (which is itself faster with 3d printers), the punishment for not having a strong Si is decreasing as more external tools come to compensate for it... more so, society is gradually moving from post-modernist Fi values to Fe values prioritizing connections and the ability to sell one's self. more and more systems are getting to big for the best minds of Te to even get a handle on, prioritizing the Ti bottom up approach of getting down and dirty with the system mechanics.

    ...in the battle for what society values, everyone is losing, while Ne>Ti>Fe is just marching on and gaining momentum.

    Huh, you're also a Capricorn Earth Dragon? But I suppose that's a nice dig in the ribs for astrology, or at least that cheap peddled kind that doesn't really delve into anything.

    After all I can't really claim much similarity with you, but this is on the internet, offline it might be different.
