    Oh, absolutely. They just manifest themselves in the form of pissing contests.

    Maybe.
    I think it mostly comes down to expectations and socialization. Men are rewarded for aggressive gestures, and women are punished for it. There may be a hormonal influence, but I don't think it's anything a thinking human couldn't compensate for with the right encouragement.

    I agree. I think it's possible. And this might just fix a few other things, too.

    Haha, I'm sorry, from an enneagram 4 point of view this is a super obvious thing. Our MO is jealousy and envy.

    Ha, self-awareness does much to mollify to me. Consider the hatchet buried.

    What does 4 advance to? ( 5 advances in the direction of 8.)

    I'm kind of a prude about some things because it reminds me of a time in my life when I was unhealthy, and was disintegrating to 7. I try not to impose that on other people

    I think we could learn a thing or two from New Zealand, we being the United States. But in our case, a strict anti-lawn policy would just make America a better place for our children. They're just so fucking boring to look at. Can You Have a Garden in New Zealand?

    Hmmm, I didn't know there was a hatchet out in the first place, but I'm glad it's gone. We integrate to 1 and disintegrate to 2.

    Oh, that makes sense given some 4s I have known.

    Females seem more subversive, as if disrupting the social atmosphere is unladylike, but wreaking havoc below the surface is acceptable.
